Summary: With the Wii U almost 6 months old at the time I purchased this, I knew there was a lack of shooters for the console so I decided to buy Blops 2. I was disappointed at the lack of support for the game from its developer. The online is lacking with an only community of about 2000 players at at time on a good day. I would hold off on this one, luckily I bought this on sale so I'm not too sour about the purchase but definitely not worth the 50 or 60 dollars that it costs.
Summary: Activison decided to abandon dlc for the wii u with this game. So while the other consoles are seeing their fourth dlc coming out now, the official stance is no planned dlc on wii u. Left me feeling burned as I bought this on wii u to play with my friend who only has a wii u. The gameplay is great, as are graphics and frame rate, but the original set of maps has gotten boring.
Call of Normalcy, Call of Campers, Call of Repetition...pick one

Summary: I bought this, much to my dismay, after pondering the lack of titles for the Wii U as of this writing. I haven't played a CoD game since MW2, which means I missed quite a bit (MW3 and BO1). Or did I? The bottom line is that I won't write a detailed review because it's been done over and over again by fanboys galore. The game is EXACTLY like every other CoD game since Modern Warefare, with maybe a tweak here and there. But the cons, like always, outweigh the pros.
Summary: Modern day trash game which plays on base human psychology to keep you hooked on what is fundimentally utter tripe. Funny, because MW3 on the Wii had simplistic pure gameplay, this game though is more like a random fruit machine which keeps you coming back by thinking you can beat the system when really the code is rigged, or broken at best.
Summary: In my opinion the campaign in Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 is absolutely rubbish and the worst Call of Duty campaign I have played to date. It seems to be full-on running around shooting things, which gets extremely boring in a short amount of time. The online is reasonable, but at the moment there just aren't enough people on the Wii U to easily find matches for the party games.
