Before anything that I say, this NEEDS to be said; there are people complaining because they can't comprehend that the game has not even been out for a week yet. There is ALWAYS things that need to be fixed after launch because they don't have enough time to finish the game beforehand.
Black Ops II gives you first, a great campaign, not spactactular by any means but still VERY well done. They had improved on the campaign AI so the series finally broke the "easier every year" routine the campaign was falling prey to. Not only that but you can have your own Create A Class with unlocks you can choose from before the mission, and to add to that, challenges to do to unlock them and get points. It's also the FIRST CoD campaign to where you have a choice in the matter of what happens in it. Overall a great expierence that actually makes you want to play it again to see the other outcomes.
Zombies, the great game mode that started out as a small easter egg back in World At War, has become bigger than ever now. You have the new ode TranZit, which you play as four new characters in a massive map where you can travel by foot or bus, construct items from objects that are laid out all over the world, and can even come across the easter egg to continue the zombie storyline! To add to that, class survival mode returns with three small parts of this massive world of TranZit. Or the brand new Grief mode that works with the multiplayer engine; 4z4, which can be played on two of the three choices for Survival. The only downside to this is that there is nothing extra to keep the die-hard zombie fans from waiting for the next DLC drop for more zombies.
Multiplayer. Everyone and their grandmothers have seen countless gameplays of a beautifully balanced MP that made anyone that got the chance to play it beofre the release love the feel of it. With the release of this game. The ONLy problem is the lag comp and the game freezing (looking at emblems mostly) that SHOULD be fixed soon.
First of all the game overall is great.graphics and playbility and content for some reason im just not into this game like i was to black ops, shooting mindlessly is getting old come up with something new to me blackops 2 is mw3 with zombies .Its the same game different title .Halo definitively beat COD this year hands down no competion
Where to begin? First off let me say this is the most original COD yet, for Call of Duty standards of course. I didn't pre-order this game because I don't trust Treyarch, but this game was definitely better than I expected, much better than the first BO, which I wasn't to thrilled about.
The game is set in the future, around 2025, so not all the guns are completely real, but they take real guns and make them look futuristic. Graphics are probably one of the biggest improvements, best I've seen in a COD yet for sure. Multiplayer servers are much more stable as well, with a lot more Custom Class personalization. The only actual problem I've had so far is that my custom classes keep resetting, or I lose all the attachments on my weapon, but this is a minor problem, because it fixes itself after about a match or two.
Zombies, where do I start with Zombies? Well, of course you have your normal zombies (rebuild barriers, survive as long as you can, etc.) but they also put different game modes in, such as team survival, the Tranzit (where you ride a bus around the map), so on and so forth. Servers in Zombies, like in the original BO, do need some work, as they are still somewhat buggy, though there is an improvement in connection.
Overall this game gave me hope in the slowly dying COD fanchise. MW3 was good, but almost no change from MW2, BO was a dissapointment as well. Good on you, Treyarch, for making a great game! Could this be the best COD yet? Give it more time, and see how long it takes before hackers ruin it, but enjoy the game for now, I would recommend buying for sure.
