i had my doubts about this game when i first got it but man was i proved wrong. I thought that i would be playing same old cod but nope. This game takes it to a whole new level and I love that.
CAMPAIGN- improved from the first one a lot. better story, cool weapons, awesome gear, and makes every mission more unique (also like playing in the future). So far the only thing I would have to say about the Campaign is that once in a while voices will become loud than very hard to hear but not a game breaker
Multiplayer- activision did a pretty good job on it this year. Since this game is based on a lot of the future you can guess that there is a bunch of new weapons. The new weapons, cool maps, sweet kill streaks, and more attachments make Multiplayer very fun (customization is pretty crazy) . I am also happy they brought back the fun modes with gun game. the new mode where matching you up with the same level skill as you was also a cool idea.
zombies- helz yea!!!! they finally made zombies a important mode. the maps, guns, and different modes on zombies is fantastic. One mode that i like was playing team zombies. where you would go against another team to see who could last longer. Now they even have a story on zombies, that's fricken cool.
In all it was a great game. from the campaign to zombies activision really set the bar high. If you do not have this game go and get it (at least a must rent). Best COD, you could really make an argument that it was. The only reason why this game is not a 10 is because of some glitching and freezing up. With some patches my rating will be changing to a 10.

i thought this was going to be okay but you know what . I'm pretty impress with this game. Campaign is better than the first one. Zombie mode is more fun and intense than the first black ops, I like the whole idea of 'future ' they put into this game also. It fits in perfect , and took it to a whole new level in call of duty franchise. best call of duty yet ? I think so but my fear is how long will it last before the mods and everyone person that wants to ruin it for everyone comes in ? Other than that this is a most buy and rent .

Holy cow, I was not expecting this game to be this good. At all.
In all honesty, like some of you, I had kind of grown tired of the series. I always enjoyed COD, but, I also always knew what to expect, and even those those experiences were always good, and always fulfilling, the "wow" factor had worn off a bit.
Not this time.
This game is a new standard for FPS. The graphics, are marvelous! Better than anything out there, a major step above previous CODs. Multiplayer is, as expected, even more improved and better than before; still the king.
But here's where it gets crazy...
The story... is actually... GOOD! Not only is it good, it's FANTASTIC! It's told well, it evolves incredibly. And the characters are awesome. A likeable hero, complicated companions and one fo the best villans of ALL TIME.
And -BONUS POINTS- the branching stories/alternative choices you can make ALL WORK. WELL. It's crazy,
They hit all the marks with this one.
If you play COD all the time, this should be your favorite, regardless if you're a multiplayer only type (if you are, give the campaign a try, it's totally worth it!) If you've never played a COD before, this is a great place to start (it's okay if you didn't the play BLOPS I, this is pretty much a self contained story) and if you have played COD before but think it's gone stale... No. No, it hasn't. The fire has been relit!
