I tend to be a COD fanboy. That said, my preference has always been Infinity Ward not Treyarch. Black ops 2 has me rethinking that in many ways. The multiplayer (the meat and potatoes of COD for myself and many others) is WAY better than it was in Black ops, plus there seems to be tons of maps from day 1. Zombies always has been and probably always will be better than survival mode.
Gameplay - Campaign, true to treyarch, is nitty gritty and action packed. The places and settings throughout time are just amazing. The messed up stuff you see and do is a huge plus as it adds a level of gruesome-ness, realism, and immersion you'd expect from war. Multiplayer feels like tons of fun again and like I said there are tons of maps. Zombies is now taken two or three levels above where it was with the new tranzit mode.
Audio - not an audiophile and nothing was lacking.
Graphics - what you'd expect from an A+++ studio at the end of a console's life cycle.
Cons - A VERY CONSIDERABLE drawback to the game are the stupid decisions made for multiplayer mode. Hardcore only features four game modes. WEAK. Where is Hardcore Domination? etc. Also, no more All or Nothing?? Did infinity ward ban you from having great game modes that they first implemented or what? Two different developers should work TOGETHER. Let's focus on ADDING more and not removing a thing. Not having developer exclusives on multiplayer modes. That's weak.
