"While those that berate the Call of Duty series for its stale yearly re-releases are making a valid point, that point is very much diluted with the release of Black Ops II. Considering the target audience and our place in the current console hardware cycle Treyarch have released a very slick package. No, it's not Shakespeare but that's not what players want from the franchise. They want a playable action movie and this delivers just that. New ideas and an interesting new setting left me enjoying this far more than expected. Die hard fans will have already bought this but I urge those that have written this off as more of the same to give it a look; there is a lot to like."
