Excellent

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.

This is Getting Repetitive

I love the Call of Duty franchise but this game is a disappointment to me. I really enjoyed the campaign and zombies is very fun. I disliked the multiplayer, and I know that people say they don't need to change it and the company doesn't need to change it because it's so popular, but seriously I am getting sick of the same thing over and over and over, the last Call of Duty I actually really liked was MW2. They need to do something a little different or make it better and more entertaining some how. Overall I was very disappointed with this game and I hope ghosts is much better than this one knowing Infinity Ward is a much better company than Treyarch. So if your looking for a change and an improvement to the series don't look here because you will find the same thing.
