CoD Blops 2 was quite the let down. I felt like i was playing any other call of duty game with better graphics. The campaign as usual was not a let down, i enjoyed it quite a bit. But the multiplayer was the same as any other call of duty just with new guns and a few other minor new things. The zombies as usual was very fun at first but if you are not a hardcore CoD zombie fan, the zombies will get boring quickly. The new 4v4 zombie mode was quite the let down, I don't like to say this about games but grief mode SUCKED it was honestly not fun at all.

Best COD game ever

I never was a big call of duty fan until I played black ops then I liked that one but still hated the other ones. After playing this game I see that it's the best call of duty ever even better then the first black ops. I only like the black ops games and none of the other call of duty games but if you play this one you will have alot of fun if you liked the first one alot. The knifing on this one sucks compared to the first one but I like pretty much everything else better. Zombies is even better then on the first one for those people who love the zombies mode.

Very Good

Entertaining as always, but not revolutionary

I picked up Black Ops 2 with a fair amount of skepticism. The COD series is always entertaining, but it has been getting stale as of late. Black Ops 2 does freshen up the series, but it's not the revolution that was promised.

Black Ops 2 has my favorite campaign from the entire COD series. The writing is great, with a really compelling main villain. There are still many awesome action set pieces, which I won't spoil for you here.

Multiplayer is mostly good. Weapons and perks are fairly balanced, and the new "Pick 10" create-a-class system is great. The maps are rather lackluster though, with easily exploitable spawn points.

Zombies mode is a mixed bag. The huge Tranzit map is a good idea, but it doesn't quite live up to its potential. While the gameplay is as enjoyable as ever, the four new characters are rather generic and annoying compared to the original four.

Black Ops 2 is absolutely worth playing if you are a COD fan. If you don't like COD, there's only a slim chance that this game will change your opinion, despite some improvements. Ultimately, Black Ops 2 retains the addictive COD gameplay and adds some new ideas, with more hits than misses.
