Very Good

My First Console Shooter Since Goldeneye

Not since Goldeneye have I thoroughly enjoyed a FPS game on a Nintendo console and I have to admit that I am a newbie to the whole genre.

But this game is extremely fun. The multiplayer is excellent even if the online community is small, the campaign is intriguing but definitely intense. Certainly not a game for kids.

This is the real COD experience though. Not a watered down version like the Wii got. Love it or hate it, theres a reason these games sell so well. They are fun and addictive.

I would suggest a Wii U Pro Controller if you are going to play any local multiplayer (zombies!!!) Wiimote and Nunchuck/classic controller are not on the same level of precision as the gamepad and pro controller.

Speaking of the Gamepad, the simple ability to pull this game down and play it in your hands is wonderful. I thought this functionality would be rarely used when i bought my Wii U. I was wrong. I love playing full console games on my Gamepad in bed/the bathroom.

Overall a great game and hardcore step for Nintendo

The best Shooting game in years!

I have played all of the call of duty games and I am an action shooter fan. I can say without reservations that this is the best game in years. The story was fun and engaging. The controls were flawless. The weapons in the game feel really close to the real ones (as far as their particular signatures are concerned; sounds, reloading times, site pictures.. .etc). I know because I own at least five of them. Furthermore, I want to add that the realism of the environmental and background special effects, and graphics was excellent. If you are a hardcore action shooter then this game is for you.
(Disclaimer) this game will not disappoint. I recommend playing this on a 42” plus TV (1080P obviously) with a nice sound system.
If I have to mention a negative about this game, it will be how short the game is. I did not want the game to end.

This FPS shooter game is finally good on a Nintendo console. With the game pad, you can play local multiplayer without looking at other people's screen and play tactics. Keep it coming treyarch!
