Story was a bit ridiculous. Charging tanks on horseback? I mean the campaign made no sense what so ever. Combat was not nearly as engrossing as Ops I.

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 Good:

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...

The MEH:

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.

The BAD:

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,

Its a BUY.
