Jon Hamlin: I am well aware that it's considered unprofessional to use the first-person in a video game review. However, in this particular instance I couldn’t care less. There are a few things I need to get off of my chest. You see, I’m frightened. I’m terrified. This is the first time I have ever set out to review a popular release and had trepidation around putting pen to paper. There are a number of reasons for this, but all one has to do is scour the Interwebs for discussion forums about Call of Duty: Black Ops II to know that no matter what score I give this game half of the people who read this review are going to hate my guts. There is so much animosity built up around the franchise, so much unbridled hatred and equally as unbridled love, that it is the perfect entrapment for a game reviewer.
