Review: Call of Duty: Black Ops II

  • 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.

  • 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.

Call Of Duty: Black Ops II

  • Summary: This year’s Call Of Duty entry arrives with some heady expectations. The first Black Ops remains one of the most successful video games of all time, despite attracting controversy over Cuban missions and the brevity of its single-player campaign. While content is likely to remain as controversial as ever – an early scene features a man being burned alive – Activision can probably rest easy over potential story complaints this time.

Game Review: Call of Duty Black Ops 2 [Xbox 360/PS3/PC]

push-start.co.uk
24 November 2012
  • Excerpt: Call of Duty is undeniably the biggest franchise of the current generation, both in sales and sheer amount of entries. With Black Ops 2 we are now on the eighth game of the generation (nine if you count the digital download version of the original), and quite honestly by this point brand fatigue is a real issue. That isn’t to say the game is bad, however.
  • Pros: -Outstanding value for money
  • Cons: -Occasional bugs and glitches

Call of Duty: Black Ops II review

Gameplanet
16 November 2012
  • Summary: Despite initial scepticism, Matt discovers that Black Ops 2 not only manages to improve on the Call of Duty series’ already fantastic multiplayer, but also provides the best campaign outing in recent memory, making it a must-have for solo players, and online addicts alike.
  • Pros: The best campaign since Modern Warfare, featuring a branching narrative and multiple endings. An overhauled multiplayer that improves an already top-class experience. Great new weapons and tech. Dolphin diving is back.
  • Cons: The engine is showing its age in places. Campaign still contains a large dollop of silliness and outdated mechanics and on-rails sections. The Strike Force missions are a failure. Zombie mode is completely overshadowed and underwhelming.
