Call of Duty: Black Ops II review | Thunderbolt

Ever since the groundbreaking success of 2007’s Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, Activision’s flagship franchise has maintained a familiar formula for prosperity, selling gangbusters year after year despite a lack of substantial iteration. Going from Infinity Ward to Treyarch, its annual release cycle has relied on an expansive multiplayer suite and a campaign geared towards linear paths and constant, bombastic set pieces. The Call of Duty series is the archetypal blockbuster video game, but its formula has quickly grown stale.

[Richard Wakeling, Thunderbolt] (Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, Xbox 360) 8/10
