Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 (Xbox 360) Review By Canadian Online Gamers

Canadian Online Gamers - "To say that the Call of Duty franchise took some heat last year would be an understatement. Despite record-breaking sales and some positive praise from the media, Activision was criticized for pumping out yet another yearly entry in the franchise that many considered unchanged. Much of the criticism originated from the Battlefield 3 faithful, but despite this I still sensed there was this underlying current of negativity hovering over the franchise last year. Despite some of the naysayers, Activision has stayed the course once again keeping the core Call of Duty experience intact as they return with Call of Duty: Black Ops 2. Sure it is still “Call of Duty”, yet this year feels a little different and much of that has to do with the work Treyarch has done over the course of the past couple of years making Black Ops 2 one of the better entries into the franchise to date." (Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, Xbox 360) 94/100

How bout actually playing the damn game instead of bitching about it.

I think the reason people are giving this game high reviews is because the overall product's "goods" outweighs the "bads." Most reviewers that have played the campaign are probably feeling thrilled at the new direction that Treyarch has taken the franchise. The sense of action and immerse thrills in the campaign makes the game feel a lot more amazing than it actually is...

You have to admit, they're doing something right here. But still, even with all the goods, in reality the game (in my opinion) is still around the 75 to 80 range. It has done nothing innovative. But it's still an enjoyable game despite the old engine, and for that it deserves some credit.
