Call of Duty: Black Ops II

Game Vortex
24 December 2012
  • Excerpt: Call of Duty is, without question, a mature series. Yes, it is rated Mature by the ESRB and Call of Duty: Black Ops II is quite easily the most violent Call of Duty game so far, with graphic visuals such as a little boy sitting next to his recently killed father, a little girl opening a door and getting horribly burned up by the backdraft, and a soldier being burned alive inside of a overturned vehicle that, apparently, has bullet-proof glass.

Review: Call of Duty: Black Ops II

New Gamer Nation
10 December 2012
  • Conclusion: Overall, Call of Duty: Black Ops II strives to be greater than the sum of its parts. The single player campaign is much improved over previous storylines in the Call of Duty franchise. The new borrowed elements from RPG and RTS games feel good and add positive qualities to the aging gameplay. Though these elements are limited, it would be great to see them expanded and used to move the franchise forward.

Call of Duty: Black Ops II Review

Hi Tech Legion
8 December 2012
  • Summary: Everybody by now is familiar with the Call of Duty formula and what to expect from the game, so keeping the title fresh is not always an easy task. While half the fans want the Call of Duty team to try out new things, a lot of other fans want the formula kept the same because it works, for the most part.

PC Magazine
30 November 2012
  • Conclusion: Some excitement and a few minor innovations can't prevent most of Call of Duty: Black Ops II from feeling like a retread in need of a reboot.
  • Pros: Good multiplayer mode. Branching, "rewindable" campaign makes intelligent use of player choices.
  • Cons: Single-player campaign is short, unfocused. Zombies mode lacks innovation.

  • Conclusion: Another year, another Call of Duty.  Black Ops II is the sequel to 2010’s Call of Duty game, Black Ops, developed by Treyarch who has done their share of games in the franchise right behind Infinity Ward.  Does Black Ops II have enough “new” to keep the series from going stale or is this just another entry for a series that’s been milked way too much?

Call of Duty: Black Ops II Review

GameSpot
28 November 2012
  • Excerpt: Jetpacks with rigid wings. Gloves that can adhere to any surface and support your body weight. Advertisements that feature your face when you walk by. The campaign in Call of Duty: Black Ops II has some interesting ideas about the future of technology, but what about the future of this massively popular shooter series?
  • Pros: Great campaign scripting, Story choices are often tough and encourage replay, League play offers a new stage for the familiar multiplayer combat
  • Cons: Zombies mode is stagnant, New codcasting tool is hamstrung, Technical limitations hamper live streaming feature

Cheat Happens
24 November 2012
  • Excerpt: It's no secret that the Call of Duty franchise has been accused of taking the easy way out on multiple occasions. Yearly release schedules have resulted in a once proud franchise being seen as a shooter that just changes very little from year to year and watches the cash come in with little effort involved.

  • Summary: We weigh in on the multiplayer, Zombies, and give a final score.
  • Pros: Fun near-future weapons and gadgets; more open levels and options; team- and objective-play rewarded in multiplayer.
  • Cons: Campaign spends too much time in the past; not a real leap forward for the franchise; balance issues in multiplayer.
