Summary: I'm not a hard core first-person shooter gamer, but I enjoyed the game and found the wii-mote point-at-the-screen configuration preferable to the traditional two-joystick method of moving around. I'm sure the graphics are better on Xbox ONE or Playstation 4, but the aforementioned controller choice makes up for it in my book. I do wish you could split the screen 4 ways for local multiplayer, but alas.
Summary: I haven't played a Call of Duty game since the original 1 & 2 on PC back in the day, but I decided to pick this up after playing it on my brothers Wii U. Top notch first person shooter with cinematic and exhilarating single player campaign with addictive online multiplayer. Go into it open minded for best results.
Summary: OK, so Call of Duty has been reduced to a parody of itself, and there are certainly better shooters out there. But on the Wii U, Black Ops 2 and Ghosts seem to be two of the very few FPS options. That being said, I was surprised to find that Ghosts on the Wii U was strangely competent. There are only about 500-600 players online at any given time, mostly in Team Deathmatch.
Great COD... too bad More Wii U owners haven't bought it.

Summary: If I had paid $60 for this game, I would probably feel the same as other reviewers of this game, but I only paid $17 so keep that in mind for my review. I have played most of the COD games but not very intensely since MW1. This is your typical COD game. Great campaign mode that can be a challenge on the highest difficulty. It took me about 6-8 hours to complete on Normal and I am still working on the hardest level.
Summary: The story...... 3 stars. The multiplayer.... 3 stars. How in the world has this game not evolved in the simplest way?? Yes you get a crazy selection of perks/guns/goodies. But why the devil you can't do a combat roll is beyond me! I mean, there are no evasive maneuvers at all. No dodge, no jump into cover when you see you're getting shot. Multiplayer is fun, but it is not evolving for many generations of the game IMO. First they've made it so you get killed instantly.
