Light em up!!,
This review is from: Call of Duty: Black Ops II - Nuketown 2025 Edition (Xbox 360) (Video Game)Lets jump right in and talk about the campaign,I just beat it and was very impressed with the story,Take the time to watch the cutscenes and enjoy it all unfold..Because this for me was one of, if not the best campaigns bestowed upon us cod gamers.
Now if you decide to pay full price for this game and you dont have a internet connection,Its debatable Because the campaign is just half the game.
Graphics are improved for this years iteration and it shows!Easy on the eye, very smooth feel progressing throughout.
Moving on to Zombies,This is hard to review because this mode is like marmite,people either Love it or hate it,If you are familier with this mode be reasured its sublime.
Now if you are not...Hmmm its gonna be a gamble if this will swing your desicion weather to purchase the game or not.
Countless ours killing zombies in a survial horror mode your thing?Then i recommend.
Before i talk about the multiplayer lets point out the new bonus missions throughout the campaign,About four missions in you unlock spec op esque missions,if you want to persue them then you can.... or return to them at later date.However continue to far in the campaign and they are not replayable to the game is complete.(These are great on veteran if you want a challenge)
So now multiplayer,Well remember how the orignal black ops had well designed maps(Do you agree)?...But they looked dull in colour?Well this time they flip reversered it!Now this is only my opinion
but alot of people are in agreement with me.They look great but feel unfortunatly worse than mw3..Dying around a corner a full 5 feet is back and no chance of survial, if taking cover while under fire you wont last.Even in the rarest time you do,chances are you will be flanked almost instantly buy another player.Maps are small, bar 2.There are 15 if you have nuketown 2025,That map has improved visualy but feels smaller and dense.Which brings me to killstreaks..Plenty of them over 20 infact,New addtions but wont mention them.
The new scoring system is ok ...It does encourage you to do the objective so caping a flag gives you 200 points which is the equvilant of 2 or 3 kills.
You could in theory just collect 10 kill confirmed tags not blast anyone and have a good killstreak,Good luck its alot harder than it sounds!!Haha!
So lets wrap up with the sound..Which is brillant ,great voice acting.Some new guns thrown in there too...
If you have never played call of duty,This game will get you addicted in no time,It may cost you a girlfriend,wife and You may even put on a few pounds while your at it too!
Still, you would have great fun spending all your spare time trying to perfect your play.
So if you have exepirenced most ,if not all cod games well you may feel a tad let down.But nonetheless this is a solid game.
Four stars from me guys.Hope this helped.
