Summary: For the first time in a while, the Call of Duty formula is actually changed up a bit with Black Ops II. The core gameplay is still the same as ever - snap to enemy, shoot, snap to enemy, shoot, etc. - but the modes built around that gameplay are more interesting this time around with some much needed tweaks. The campaign is solid. The multiplayer feels fresh with a new take on the perks system. And zombies is a full mode on its own now.
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: In this review I’ll take you through each of the multiplayer maps included in the Uprising DLC, before taking a look at the celebrity filled Mob of the Dead, the latest addition to the ever popular Zombies mode.
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: It’s that time of the year again, and you’re going to have to decide whether or not you’re going to commit to buying the new Call of Duty DLC. Revolution has been released for Black Ops II, and many are using it to judge whether or not they like the direction that they believe Treyarch will take with subsequent map packs. Will the multiplayer keep its usual pace, or will we see some unique takes on combat?
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?
