Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 Review | Gamereactor UK

GR-UK writes: "It's obvious that Treyarch have really tried, both as far as the campaign and the Zombies go, but they haven't made it all the way. There is a lot of potential in Black Ops 2, but perhaps there is just too much comfort with the signature style of the series, that it's impossible to make something truly captivating with it.

That's why I'm ready for a complete reboot of the Call of Duty franchise. But that's not likely. Call of Duty has been turned into the FIFA of the shooter genre. It's a sports game you buy once a year and then play for the following 12 months. A game where the changes from one iteration to the next are minimal, but something you can always rely on. So don't focus too much on my score. If you still enjoy Call of Duty games, you will no doubt enjoy Black Ops 2. But after spending 6 years in these trenches I would like to see Infinity Ward and Treyarch come up with something different." (Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 7/10

"Multiplayer is better than ever"
Wow impressive statement.

Shame about the Zombie mode, I'm hearing it's rather underwhelming. Oh well, guess it's just an extra really.

At last, a true review that's honest about the actual gameplay of this game.
The same s"*t with a different title. Run 'n' gun is all that this game is about as with the last releases of the game inc Modern Warfare.
No teamwork, no comunicatining, no need for mic's, no destruction, no vehicles. I'm sorry but this is boring multiplayer. But yet it sells so well........ Guess there's a lot of players out there with no friends who play by themselves locked in closets.
Agh well, each to their own I suppose.

Stop obviously comparing battlefield 3 to cod. They are different games because they are for different audiences

BRAVO. Gamereactor STRUT. A permutation is happening with COD reviews. Finally some sites are willing to telling the truth. Two years late, but impressive none of the less.

Naaa, i expected this game to score higher than mw3. Now that game was BS in the fact the most of the stuff was the same.

I think reviewers want to give higher, but since the community is saying other wise, they aren't.

The only cod that was actually bad, stripped and repetitive is Mw3.

Don't be one of those guys. Did you even play the game?
