Chris Lohr: Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 has sold decently: over five hundred million dollars worth of sales in the first day alone, breaking the sales record held by Modern Warfare 3 of four hundred million dollars last year. There are plenty of insanely high reviews coming in from different sites and magazines, yet if one were to go onto any forum/message board and start a thread about Blops 2, the replies would be full of people ripping it apart and calling you racial slurs, videos on YouTube are split in terms of likes and dislikes, and the Metacritic user score is a 4.4. All of this should be taken with a grain of salt as people slandering Call of Duty to seem cool or mature is a widespread phenomenon. Salt aside, the response to the game couldn’t be more split. I’m here to figure out why.
