FYI not the best speller sorry. Ill start with the campaign. To be fair I didnt finish it so people may have more interest as it goes on but i made it halfway through and for me it was dull it jumped around and i didnt like how certian things could affect my future if i wanted that i would play mass effect (which i have) to continue i also didnt like how once again the AI is useless. I might have made it farther in the game if it wasnt for there little side missions that are optional except for two. They dont really go with the story and the are hard and painfull and once again the AI is even worse. My lone love of this game was Zombies. By far in my opinion the best idea and map created it took a little time to see how it works but it was worth it i love how the map is made and there is a good objective besides living. However the characters of zombies are anoying and besides one, they look weird and chatter is just stupid. At last the Multi player to be fair i gave it a good shot the guns are ok perk/point system are not bad and the scorestreaks are ok but are too hard to get after 9 kills without dying. 1.47 k/d if you think iam just a bad player. (FYI to be fair i play hardcore might be better for core players) In addition i like the combat training and i like the maps but three. The thing that ruined this game for me is something called LAG COMPINSATION. Worst idea ever. in short it means that if u have green bar guy on other team has red bar it will bump you down to red bar. I didnt believe it till i was HOST and i lagged everywhere. and its not just me my friends complain about lag constantly. the other thing is spawn system. in every game i play there is atleast 2-3 spawn kills i even spawn kill people its really bad. So for me i like this game sometimes hate it the rest of the time. i hope you have better luck than i did and i hope that you have a better experiance than me this is my opinion of the game i hoped it helped 2 out of 10

Treyarch has been known in the past for straying from the CoD formula, with World at war after Modern Warfare and Black Ops 1 with Modern Warfare 2, Treyarch has been named the TRUE CoD devs and with Black ops 2, the name holds up. Here's my verdict:
The future is black...and it looks good: Its shocking, a Call of Duty game ACTUALLY looks good? Yes its true, the art, the futuristic environments, all look great.
What? A good Campaign?: While a bit on the short side, the Campaign is pretty good, continues Blops 1's storyline, it even puts you back in the 60's for a bit with guns in all, the choices system is a huge boost in replayability.
BRRRRRAAAAINNNSSSS: Zombies is back, With even MOAR fun, how about Good ol Survival? Check. Player vs player vs Zombies? Check. A story based Zombies Campaign? Check. Epic new Characters and guns? Check.
World (In)Famous multiplayer: Didn't get too much playtime with it, but I did get to the pick ten system, very interesting, I see it being a bit more versatile but only time will tell to see what players will do with it. The biggest standout was the GHOST replacement, if you think you're gonna sit and camp and be off the map, you're sorely mistaken...
Another CoD another boring menu: Not a big gripe, but every menu in CoD since MW2 has looked relatively the same, would love to see SOME change, but again, not a big gripe.
Nuketown 2025 and Zombies are Preorder bonuses? F off Activision!: I've seen the gameplay for 2025 and I have to say, EVERYBODY deserves to have it, its a Jetsons-like map that plays every bit like the good ol Nuketown we know and love...but Acti, you guys suck for making it a preorder bonus.
Overall: Its the best CoD since 4, we really haven't had this much bang for your buck...ever. I mean, Multiple playthroughs in the campaign, Zombies Zombies and even more Zombies, and the so bad its good Multiplayer. Its worth it this time around guys,
