Great Game but with some issues!

When I heard about this game, I wasn't in a bunch to preorder this game. I was like woo another mediocre Call of Duty! But when I got GameFly I put it on my list and eventually got it in the mail. The campaign blown me away a lot more than Modern Warfare 3's campaign. The ending is affected by your actions just like Mass Effect. The campaign switches from the 80's where you play as Mason and Woods and in 2025 you play as David "Section" Mason, Alex Mason's son. Between missions you get to pick your weapons, attachments, grenades and campaign perks just like in MP. Some of the cutscenes between David and Woods suffer from a huge FPS drop for no reason.

Multiplayer is awesome on here just like on the 360. One player can use the GamePad screen while the other player is using the TV online. But when you do either 2 player online or 3 player or more on local be prepared for FPS hits just like the campaign mode. New additions to MP include 31 layers for your emblem, Wildcards that include letting you have either 2 primary weapons, 2 attachments for your secondary weapon, 3 attachments for your primary weapon, 2 perks in either slot 1,2 or 3 and some more. You get up to 10 items in classes but in custom matches, the setting can be upped to around 17 or so.

Zombies in Black Ops 2 is different from zombies in Black Ops 1. You can have up to 8 players in one match. Tranzit makes Black Ops 2 zombies unique. Tranzit is where you visit different areas via a bus that goes on its own and there is Grief mode when it's 4V4 fighting off zombies on 2 different teams. There is also the classic Survival mode just like Black Ops 1.

This version of Black Ops 2 is a little more awesome than the 360 version but with some drawbacks. First this game gets FPS hits. Second, 360 BO 2 zombies supports 4 players on one console, here it is 2 people. Treyarch lets you use your old Wiimote or can use the Pro Controller which is the best for this game. The Gamepad is used awesomely for thi

I own this game for PS3 and I love it. But to be completely honest, it looks a LOT better on the Wii U! The graphics are outstanding! I was actually really shocked because I was expecting them to look pretty much identical but no, there is a noticeable difference between the Wii U version and the other console versions. If you have a choice between getting it on Wii U and the other consoles, get it on the Wii U :)
