Call of Duty Black Ops 2 - The Hype Has Returned But At What Cost?

The last few weeks have already caused many gamers to be suspicious of big gaming websites or magazines, and their relationships with game publishers and PR. So I’d like to think that the average punter is above little tricks like this now.

Sure we are living in the age of celebrity, but to gush over staged PR shots of Professor Green or Chris bloody Kamara playing Call of Duty is of no help to anyone at all. It further clouds the relationship between publication and publisher, where everyone gets cosy with the latest round of rent-a-celebs. (Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

It's bigger better and tips all call of duties, at the cost of a crappy ps3 version. Lol

ever COD since COD4 has been overatted; this company is milking recycled everything.

PASS COD if you have a brain and thing for yourself.
Its not good to support this kind of practice.

Everyone do yourself a favor. If you really like black ops 2 and don't own a 360 sell your ps3 and buy a 360. It's worth it if all you play is call of duty.

IGN, KOTAKU just need to rename themselves "CoD fanboy nerd Club Society", because ANYTHING and EVERYTHING CoD is praised and promoted to the point of stupidness.. everyone know these review sites are being paid for biased, lame reviews that put CoD in some stratosphere (despite its yearly issues and bugs) and they bash anything else that even remotely has anything similiar to CoD. Its disgustingly pathetic..
