Wait A Minute. Two Smart Critics Really Like The Wii U’s Allegedly Inferior Black Ops II.

Kotaku: Once could be an aberration. Twice? We're approaching a trend, people.

Two sharp critics have both spent some time this week saying that Call of Duty: Black Ops II is good. Better than that, one of these chaps suggests that Black Ops II might be, PC notwithstanding, best on Wii U. (Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, PC, PS3, Wii U, Xbox 360)

@papa-slam I agree with you on the frame rate issue with the wii u, but I disagree with you on the graphics. It looks as good as the 360 if not better. I own both versions and I like playing on the U. Also the hit detection is a heck of a lot better. That could be due to having less people online.

This whole Black ops 2 wiiu thing is so blown out of proportion. I've just played the campaign and it suffers similar framerate issues PS3 does in those big scenes, and even Xbox suffers framerate issues at times as well, these consoles are just not built to handle all of those explosions and enemies at once, and good thing most games are not built that way. The online portion looks and runs perfectly.

Its not a problem with the console. The game is only coded for "one" console and that is the 360. The other versions are just ports of the 360 version, so any problem that manifests in the 360 version will manifest in the others likely with more severity.

The best you would get out of the other two is their running exactly like the 360 version. The Wii U version does have higher resolution textures though.

Either way, this is a software issue brought about by lazy, unoptimized coding on the devs part, not the hardware.

Fewer online jerks sounds like a good thing to me! :)
WiiUsauce  +   1092d ago
yeah, the Wii U online community is pretty damn positive. I love going somewhere where I see absolutely no hate, ever.

i haven't any version of black ops 2 so can someone tell me that has played the wii u version is it true that the wii u port has a lot of problems?
Wolfbiker  +   1092d ago
No it is not true. The Game is fine.

Kotaku trying to troll a troll critic like Jim Sterling. This is priceless!
yewles1  +   1092d ago brain is fried, is this article sarcasm? It just seems a bit all over the place...

Wii u is a stronger wii.

It does not have the power for anything else.
Pillsbury1  +   1092d ago
I fervently disagree.
MysticStrummer  +   1092d ago
The Wii U is quite a bit stronger than the Wii and has a very different controller, so I'm not sure what you're talking about. It has great potential. I won't be buying one, but your comment is way too dismissive. PS4 and NextBox will both be stronger than the Wii U though.
WiiUsauce  +   1092d ago
so Randy Pitchford saying the console is next gen means nothing? what about countless devs praising the Wii U, being on record saying that it is more powerful than current consoles? your fanboyism has clouded your vision and you only see what you want to. Why does it anger you that the Wii U is a more powerful machine than the 360 and PS3? I own both a PS3 and a 360, and I love those consoles, but I also own a Wii U and have no problem accepting that it is a more capable platform.
there will be more powerful consoles than Wii U in the future, but for now the Wii U is the most powerful home console. get real and deal with it.

You're hilarious! Is that cute what you just said there.
rpd123  +   1092d ago
So is this guy defending those reviews or sarcastically making fun of them?
neogeo  +   1092d ago
I think I have the answer. WiiU is brighter then PS3 on ALL games, regardless of frame rate or whatever, I own both systems and 2 nice TV's A Samsung and a Sony. My WiiU looks much brighter on all games. I'm not just talking about a TV adjustment, It just pops out more at you.

Sometimes darkness is used like "distance-fog"- it obscures details so that they don't have to be rendered fully. This lessens the load on the system architecture.

the wii u version DESTROYS the ps3/360 version visually

sadly for the wii u it still looks last gen compared to the pc version in 1600p with 16x aa at 60 frames
Zhipp  +   1092d ago
Who the hell has a PC that can run BLOPS smoothly at 1600p with all that AA?
MysticStrummer  +   1092d ago
"the wii u version DESTROYS the ps3/360 version visually"

I don't know if you care, and judging by some of your past comments I'm guessing you don't, but no one can take you seriously if you spout BS like this. Destroys? No.

googled ' smart critics'....
no results
' constructive criticism ' had only 3 hits.....shame that.
Benjaminkno  +   1092d ago
The gamepad functionality renders this version of the game superior. As more Wii U's are sold, the more online players there will be. Discussion over.
beXify  +   1092d ago
FACT : Some WiiU players suck online ( like me ) because the wiimote controls are really.

Black Ops 2 On Wii U Is Sub-HD And Has Worst Frame-Rate

blacks ops 2 on xbox and playstaion sub hd and suffers frame rate as well or have you forgotten this. as Wii u version is a port it wouldn't be much better. wait until aliens then we'll talk.

also zombiu is the best zombie game since resident evil 3, traded resi 6 to get it as resident evil sucks now.
