Call of Duty: Black Ops II Review | GamingTrend

GamingTrend writes:

"Gamers have a love/hate relationship with AAA franchises that release annual installments; On one hand its great to see more of something you love, but as we’ve seen time and time again, fatigue can set in. We expect more and better, demand innovation, and invariably become distracted that much easier by the next bright shiny that comes along. For eight years in a row the fall release schedule has had a Call of Duty game on it’s roster, widely regarded as *the* dominant console shooter this side of Halo, and certainly the most successful one to tackle the more realistic side of the genre. Based on sales and critical reception, it would be hard to characterize the series as anything other than a record-breaking juggernaut, but the gamer zeitgeist has shifted subtly, and the lens of time has led to a more critical assessment of the previous two installments in the series- Black Ops and Modern Warfare 3. It was clear that this year’s release- Black Ops II- would not be able to get by on name alone." (Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 91/100
