Call of Duty Black Ops II (Wii U) Review
13 February 2013
Excerpt: There hasn’t been a Call of Duty game on a Nintendo system that’s been on par with the majority of other versions available in nearly a decade. While the Wii versions of Call of Duty were solid, ran well and even featured comparable online features to their HD counterparts, part of the spectacle and the reason for Call of Duty’s rise to blockbuster stardom is the ‘show’ it puts on.
Excerpt: Due to the low adoption rate and iffy online service of Nintendo's Wii U, this version of Call of Duty: Black Ops II may not be the one to get if you have either a PlayStation 3, an Xbox 360, or a high-end gaming PC. That being said, this Wii U version is no slouch; far from it, in fact. This version can hold itself up alongside its current-generation brethren quite well, from its excellent presentation to its tried and true gameplay.
Excerpt: Well hello there. If you’re reading this then that means you’re interested in the Wii U version of Call of Duty: Black Ops II . Since my good friend Chris Kerr has already reviewed the game on the Xbox 360 , which essentially covers most of what the game offers, and since both versions are nearly identical, this article will instead deal with what Call of Duty: Black Ops II brings specifically to Nintendo’s new hardware.
Excerpt: When you pick up Call of Duty: Black Ops II for Nintendo’s Wii U, you're getting essentially the same game you would get on any other console.

Pros: The branching story campaign, Addictive multiplayer and Zombies modes, Playing split-screen co-op with the GamePad
Cons: Not being able to access the Home screen from any menu, Touch controls to streamline menus and class customization are absent, Not having a Wii U Pro Controller for split-screen co-op
Excerpt: Having played and reviewed both the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 I can safely say you do not get much in terms of “new” with Black Ops 2 for the Wii U. By in large it is the same game with a few Wii U exclusive features added to the mix. Yet this is not a bad thing as the entertaining single player campaign, beefed up Zombies mode and the rich Black Ops 2 Multiplayer have all made it unscathed and successfully ported onto Nintendo’s newest...
Excerpt: The Call of Duty brand is synonymous with hard-core gaming. The very name conjures up images of extremely dedicated players who participate online in match after match, honing their skills and decimating the competition. It was these same gamers Nintendo left behind when they released the Wii – an incredibly successful console, but one that catered to a more casual audience.
