Call of Duty: Black Ops II
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.
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.
Excerpt: Assassin’s Creed III Review 2 Playing the Assassin’s Creed games over the past few years has been a hell of a lot of fun! Running through the streets of Rome, performing mischievous deeds for the sake of saving the world from the forces of evil, unbeknownst to the public. These in and of themselves were fun to experience, but to me, what has made the series great was the overarching story of Desmond Miles and The First Civilization.
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.
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.
Excerpt: As it stands, Call of Duty is still a lot of fun. While the past couple of games have played things as safe as possible, Black Ops II has one the most exciting, creative and downright fun campaigns in the series to-date. While I’ll never understand the appeal of Treyarch’s Zombies mode, and the multiplayer is still essentially the same as it’s ever been (with some smart improvements), this is a step in the right direction for a franchise that seems destined to continue...
