Black Ops 2 review: The most unique 'Call of Duty' yet | DigitalSpy

It's a pleasure to see a franchise that's often derided for being linear and stuck in its ways attempt to evolve and change, suggesting that Call of Duty's lofty place at the top isn't being taken for granted. (Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 4/5

Picking this up tomorrow, can't wait, hopefully it's better than MW3.

I've got it on release date, and I'm enjoying it quite of bit, I do not care for single player so not sure if it is good or not, but the multiplayer is way better than MW3, maps are awesome. The thing that I don't like is the menu to choose your weapons and perks, is quite different from MW3 and it takes a while to get used to it.

As a mainly singleplayer man I can tell you the campaign is excellent, explosive, violent and varied. It puts MW3's sterile campaign to shame.

The story is a little uneven but we're not talking MW2 levels of stupidity and the characters are actually developed past facial hair.

I was a) surprised at how much I enjoyed it and b) impressed with Treyarch.

They could of just phoned this in but instead they kept what CoD is all about at its core and came up with enough fresh and interesting ideas for it t be the best CoD campaign since 4 as far as i'm concerned.

And that's the most you'll see me praise CoD ever.

everything's better than mw3, I hated that game so much, i'll never buy another activision cod again after that atrocity, but yeah, black ops 2 is alot of fun.
Jobesy  +   1108d ago
They're ALL Activision COD games, I think you mean IW COD games.
WeskerChildReborned  +   1108d ago
I actually agree with you, MW3 imo was horrible due to lack of barely any innovation, Black Ops 2 on the other hand, looks to atleast try and that's why i like Treyarch more than IW right now,

I have a feeling though that Zampella and West leaving might have impacted the development of MW3.

it's definitely unique in multiplayer when it comes to "lag compensation"... most the time it's unplayable thx to it :/
MysticStrummer  +   1108d ago
There's lag compensation? I never would have guessed that.
AllroundGamer  +   1108d ago
yeah if you getting your a$$kicked too much, just watch the killcam, the enemy is seeing you 1-2 seconds before you can even see him... it's Treyarchs way to say, that people with $hitty internet connection should have at least such advantage... so much fail :/

Call of duty and unique can never be in the same sentence and make sense. It's the same call of duty with a different subtitle, there is nothing new or innovative.
brettyd  +   1108d ago
Oh so you've played it right? BO2 is a big improvement over the past 2 games.
Summons75  +   1108d ago
not's the same thing

oh wait!!! kill streaks got changed to Point Steaks....IT'S A REVOLUTION EVERYONE, FIRST GAME EVER TO DO THIS!!!!!

Simplest question there is, have you played the game? Yes or no question, don't say anything else. Just yes. or. no.
creized1  +   1108d ago
It would be unique if it didn't have lag or freezes...
Treyarc has done a really good job with the game in my opinion and has added a lot of good stuff in the game and fixed a lot of things that needed fixing.
However the most important thing they haven't fixed is Lag...
Fix the Lag and when someone asks in 5 years or so which is the best COD game you ever played, the answer will be (for me atleast) COD4 and BO2 (Yes it belongs with COD4 if they fix the lag issue completely (my opinion)
bunfighterii  +   1108d ago
I am still waiting for a patch to fix this game's problems before I buy it. I hated BLOPS because of its frame rate, lag and hit detection issues, it just Became an eternal frustration. Looks like Treyarch didn't bother fixing these things.

KingSalahi  +   1107d ago
last two Medal of honor are the same and bf3, bad company 1 and 2 are rehash of each other.
KingSalahi  +   1107d ago
I played the game and its pretty much the same but want they did change was for the better the way the points work make objective more fun to play not just kill death, maps actually flow,
