Excerpt: Call of Duty is one of the most notorious franchises this generation. The sheer popularity of the games virtually eclipses most other games of its ilk, and they are almost always the biggest selling titles of the year. Perhaps the biggest reason for this is how each game delivers some new content with each iteration, yet still maintains the same feel. I'm not just talking about multiplayer, either.
Excerpt: These changes are generally negligible. Black Ops II is just as solid, and flawed, a game as it is on other systems, and for many Nintendo die-hards, that’s a refreshing change. Certainly don’t get this if you own other versions, but if you’re not bothered by a smaller online community (or just want something else for your Wii U), you’re not really going wrong by picking up this edition.
Pros: Same great game, interesting GamePad implementation in multiplayer
Cons: Occasional campaign slowdown issues, smaller online community
Extremely violent military shooter with profanity, drugs.

Summary: Parents need to know that Call of Duty: Black Ops II is a gritty, extremely violent military first-person shooter set mostly in the near future. Players engage in graphic combat that involves constant killing using realistic weapons, with blood and gore pouring across the screen during more intense scenes. Cinematic sequences can be even more dramatic and graphic, with both soldiers and civilians dying in horrible ways.
Treyarch's Blockbuster On Wii U Is Mostly Unchanged
21 November 2012
Conclusion: Concept: Introduce minimal GamePad elements to the newest Call of Duty
Graphics: On par with the other versions, outside of some stutter when playing local multiplayer
Sound: Campaign features some Hollywood-caliber voice acting, and the shootouts sound appropriately chaotic
Playability: I actually found myself preferring the GamePad over the pro controller
Entertainment: Multiplayer issues aside, fans of the franchise will find plenty to like
Conclusion: Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 has more content than almost any other release. It really is phenomenal how much Treyarch have packed into the game and that alone deserves high praise. This isn't some cookie cutter yearly update which demands your cash for some stat changes and a few maps, it's huge value for money. What's more, the game is presented well with excellent production values.
Pros: More content than ever before, Looks and sounds great, Some great new additions and tweaks, Lots of control schemes & two player without splitscreen
Cons: Strike Force missions are a missed opportunity, Map designs aren't up to Treyarch's usual high standards, Horrible lag ruins the online experience
Excerpt: Call Of Duty hasn't been kind to Nintendo fans. Wii's ports resembled school productions of the other formats' Hollywood blockbusters: all cereal box skyscrapers and mushroom clouds conjured with weedy guffs of dry ice. Online modes were missing and those that made the cut were abandoned at birth: no DLC, no patching, no chance. But after five long years of battered COD, Activision has finally promised Nintendo Wii U owners the real deal.
Summary: Wat hebben de badkuip, het bed, de bank en de zitzak met elkaar gemeen? Precies, het zijn allemaal plaatsen waar je vol hartenlust noobs en campers online kunt afslachten in Call of Duty: Black Ops 2. Ben ik nu helemaal gek geworden? Welnee, ik heb alleen de Nintendo Wii U-console in huis gehaald. Jelle was in zijn recensie van de andere versies al zeer te spreken over de game en bekroonde deze met een 8.
Pros: Uitstekende campagne, IJzersterke multiplayer, Zombie-modus, Veel diepgang, Besturingsmogelijkheden, Prima audio, Interessante setting
Cons: Verouderde graphics, Elite ontbreekt, Enkele modi ontbreken
Summary: Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 je velké překvapení. Základem je opět skvělý multiplayer, ale celou skládačku doplňuje i povedený singleplayer, který začal v posledních letech dost strádat. Konečně je tu tedy pokračování, za nímž je vidět i tvrdá práce a ne jenom kalkul s naplněním prasátka, i když i to si musí v těchto dnech pochrochtávat, stejně jako jistě spokojení hráči. Call of Duty je zpět, a to v plné síle!
