Black Ops 2 is actually kind of fun

"Today I bring to you something I stumbled across during my usual adventures on Xbox Live. Something so awesome that at first, I didn’t realise what it was until it had happened a few times, and what’s more, I found it in a game I normally try my absolute best to avoid; Call of Duty Black Ops 2." by Martin Toney (Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

I don't like cod online either but that doesn't mean I have to whine about it in every cod article.

Too many people jump on bandwagons.

Whatever is popular to say, people on their blogsites will say it.

In all reality, this is probably the BEST COD game yet in terms of content and quality of play, along with maps.

It's not perfect and we are all honestly ready for the Next Gen shooters and what they have to offer, but that doesn't detract from Black Ops 2 being an awesome game.

Alot of people do entirely enjoy playing COD..... I'm just not one of them. But those who do, do your thing.

COD has it own fun factor compared to other fps games mainly BF3. To me the main fun factor for COD games are when you have mates over you can just play 4 player split screen and vs each other. BF3 does not allow that. But what BF3 cater is a massive online maps to play. Thats BF3's fun factor. Each game has it own fun factor.

Most people who hate either of these games are headless chocks who just despise one or the other by following the crowd. If you dont have friends coming over (or none at all), then that is a different issue.

Yeah the thing cod has over bf is the local multiplayer for sure. I hated the online for mw3, but that survival mode is really fun with splitscreen. They have different reasons to like them.

I have not been enjoying the last few CoDs, but i will admit Black Ops 2 is probably the most fun with CoD ive had since World at War.

Well since this topic is talking about how some actually enjoy playing Black Ops II ( or any Call of Duty games for that matter), it is our duty to level the playing field and whine about how all the games are the same and rush out to MetaCritic and give the game a 0 (or if we are feeling extremely generous that day a 1) without even playing it and troll every article on N4G about the series even in topics that don't mention the franchise. Am I cool or what?

I'm not a COD anti-fanboy at all. I enjoyed COD4 and Black Ops 1 a lot. Of course, the series recently went down the shitter in terms of online gameplay, ever since they added horrible lag compensation to MW3 and Black Ops 2, rendering the game unplayable and rage-inducing at times.

It is also my personal opinion that Battlefield 3 is a far superior game. I don't by any means hate COD on an automatic basis, however. If they can ever patch out the crappy lag of Black Ops 2, I can actually see it being quite a polished, fun, and competitive online shooter. As it stands, I sold it after 2 days because the lag compensation issues killed all enjoyment for me. I don't enjoy going negative k/d in every game, sorry.

Its kind of fun... I'm a big fan of One in the Chamber.
Dovahkiin  +   1172d ago
I agree, there is no denying that it is fun. One in the chamber is great, as is gun game.

Its pretty fun. I hate C4 though. -___-
brettyd  +   1172d ago
It is fun, not one of my favorite games but i enjoy playing it with friends. There is ALOT of BS but i'm a big boy I can deal with it.
dkgshiz  +   1172d ago
Its average and gets old fast. I tried it out only really for zombies. Needless to say its the same old game. If thats what you like about COD then no reason to even explain any further.
andrew007f  +   1172d ago
it is all about the zombies they are the only good thing the campain sucked all because of mason dying it was a good twist but by woods being the killer that was too farand the game was too short if they wanted to make things they could have they could make manandez a god he all ready had enough connections to be a mass murdererand have the hole planet be nuked and he would still get out of punishment it wasnt worth my mooney time or patients overall i did like some of the game i think i cant wait too see how much they mess up next time.
Mr-Zex  +   1172d ago
Lol, "manaendez" "patients" :')

Bet you didn't know there are four seperate endings and if you don't kill Mason and shoot him in the leg he survives.. Endings are based on decisions you make throughout the game, I like how you didn't know any of that and decided to post your comment anyway.. Lmao.

Overall I enjoyed the campaign but zombies are underwhelming and annoying as all hell, takes too long to achieve something on it, Multi-Player is actually a really fun and well created aspect of the game, I enjoyed it :3
cpayne93  +   1172d ago
Thanks for the spoilers bro. If you think mason dying was a good twist, why did you have to go and tell everyone?

Best COD since 4th

Hit box is broken worse than BO1.

The game is obscenely laggy and yes I play on Xbox.

Target finder should be removed.

Knives are still < guns.

Facking quick scope bullshite.


Incoming hostel lightning strike and this announcement is away too late because you died from an incoming hostel lightning strike.

The good news is...

Zombies are still fun.
Maps are excellant aside from Drone...which is sh**.
Gun game
One in the chamber.
No bulls*** perks till 55
you must earn attachments again.

I personally enjoyed myself playing the game. If you didn't, I've been in a similar situation and hope you got the chance to try before you buy.

Other than that, every game will have those who like it and those who don't. The best part about video games is if you don't like one, there are so many games out there that you'll find one you will like.

let me put it straight codbo2 is a turd.
farhad2k8  +   1172d ago
I've missed out on all the CoD's since MW2, decided to get back in to console gaming and bought Hal0 4 and BO2. I have to admit, BO2 is not what I expected, it actually got me playing it for 12 hours straight on some days, it's actually a pretty good game. Other than the hit detection on 3 bar connections, and the lag compensation, this game would be perfect! I have a high speed internet connection and I usually get host, so I hardly ever get stuck in to laggy lobbies so it's not a huge deal for me. Great CoD, and party games are a nice relaxing touch.
