Diehard GameFAN: Call of Duty: Black Ops II (Wii U) Review

DHGF: Call of Duty: Black Ops II is everything you’ve come to expect from Activision’s insanely popular military themed shooter. The campaign is expertly written, paced, and emotionally charged from beginning to end, and by incorporating some truly intense player choices that alter the game’s outcome, it is the best the series has come out with to date. The multiplayer is bursting at the seams with content, and while truly not breaking any new ground when compared to previous games, the few tweaks and polishes present provide more than enough initiative to move up the ranks this time around. The novelty of the Zombie mode is showing its wear this time around, and just doesn’t come into its own as a unique thing enough to make it a quality alternative to the frantic action of the other available modes. The Wii U version offers the ability to play the game in its entirety on the tablet controller screen, as well as a bevy of physical controller options to suit pretty much anyone. The downside of this version in particular comes by way of a virtually brand new community, and in turn, League Play, possibly the most interesting of BO2‘s new multiplayer features, can’t really be utilized at the moment. Getting down to it technically, BO2 doesn’t miss a beat on Nintendo’s new machine and feels right at home. (Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, Wii U) -
