Call Of Duty: Black Ops 2 – Review (360, PS3)
7 September 2013
Excerpt: Developed by Treyarch and published by Activision, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 is the latest first-person-shooter to be released in the Call of Duty franchise. While the original Black Ops and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 have pretty much set a massive benchmark for the franchise… does Black Ops 2 successfully expand and add innovation to this much loved franchise… or is this title one that truly deserves to be bombarded by a massive nuclear strike?
Excerpt: The Black Ops II content barrage continues with Uprising , an add-on that’s split between four great multiplayer maps and a massive new Zombies quest. We love the ongoing trend of distinct, singular-feeling locations in Black Ops II ’s downloadable packs, and Uprising ’s offerings don’t disappoint.
Pros: + All four multiplayer maps feel really fresh — even the remake!, + Mob of the Dead is large and really entertaining.
Cons: ? Can you find all of the easter eggs in Alcatraz?
Excerpt: "Revolutionary" is too strong a word to describe the first chunk of Black Ops II add-on content, but we would call its diverse multiplayer additions essential for hardened players. Four excellent multiplayer maps make up the bulk of the set. "Grind" is the eye-catcher — its X-Games–inspired skate park brims with colorful quarter-pipes — though the flooding tunnels of dam station "Hydro" add another new twist.
Pros: + Includes four great new, diverse multiplayer maps., + "Die Rise" is an intriguing and challenging Zombies scenario.
Cons: ? After "Grind," what surprise location is next?
Excerpt: Developer Treyarch and publisher Activision announced the release of the Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 Season Pass in 2012 that would allow players to pick up four future add-ons for a discounted price, and the team has unleashed the Revolution DLC as the first part of the content drops for their hit game. Revolution includes four new multiplayer maps in Hydro, Mirage, Downhill and Grind, a new Zombies map called Die Rise.
Conclusion: Despite a formula that’s been used for years and years, Treyarch has made Black Ops 2 feel fresh as Call of Duty 4. The rollercoaster ride at the end of the single player is amazing. Multiplayer is addicting and fun. Black Ops 2 is great.
