Call of Duty: Black Ops II is just an amazing game and with all the hype it was recieving it was well worth 50-60$. The gameplay was fluid, the story was actually good, multiplayer is amazing especially if you preordered this game and got Nuketown 2025, and Zombies is possibly the best part introducing 2 different game mode for veteran players like myself and for newer players. Zombies is thrown into an intense new storyline where our new charecters Nerdy Marlton, to Kick Butt Sarah, and even Cool Rustman and Poor Hobo Samuel are traveling through a desolate city looking for parts to create all new inventions. Now for the bad part, there are a lot of glitches that desperatly need addressing such as the no load green screen or the terrible resolutions, to a lot of textures and graphical glitches. And for some strange reason sometimes your sniper will have no scope. The only reason why it's not higher is because of all the glitches and bugs which I hope will be patched through new updates.
I've always enjoyed the fun aspects of each (Activision) CoD game. Each game has always had it's flaws, but there's usually some redeeming quality that makes me rent it. Such examples like WaW's zombie mode, same for Black Ops 1 as well as Wager matches, etc. But there's no real selling point for really having fun in this game.
The Black Ops 1 campaign was always really fun to me. It changed the pace of most CoD games, introduced interesting cutscenes and story twists, without feeling forced or rushed. However, I didn't feel the same way for Blops 2. The campaign feels like a desperate attempt to incorporate a futuristic environment, with throwbacks to the original game's characters. I enjoyed playing the campaign admittedly, but the story was weak, and the objectives were annoying and repetitive.
The multiplayer feels repetitive, like many other aspects of this game, as well as unbalanced, and more encouraging of survivalism than the other games. The emphasis on incredibly powered scorestreaks (the hunter killer is beyond annoying) encourages camping even more than the other CoD games, strangely enough. Very disappointing, even after not expecting much in the first place.
Now the zombies, the only reason I even bothered renting this game. I played hundreds of matches both co-op and solo in Blops 1, on all DLC maps, and really liked the additions over WaW. What really disappointed me in this game were the stretched-changes that Activision has made. The futuristic elements that are pumped into every other aspect of the game are lost here; and I feel as if they could have saved this gametype. Tranzit mode is unfairly difficult for solo, repetitive and "easy" for co-op, Grief (4v4 competitive) is a flurry of players knifing others into lava, and speaking of which, your character is lit on fire constantly from invisible streams of lava.
TL; DR Campaign is fun at times, Multiplayer is annoying, and Zombies is a letdown.
