3.0 out of 5 stars Like watching a third-rate action film., 9 Dec. 2012
= Fun:1.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Call of Duty: Black Ops II [Standard edition] (PC DVD) (CD-ROM)
A single player perspective:

The game is good when you manage to use the keyboard/mouse for more than a minute between very lengthy cut-scenes, cut-scenes where you get zero interaction and few chances to skip. You'll be pounding the keyboard and clicking the mouse buttons for minutes at a time looking for a way out. Developers listen up, if I don't want to follow the story, give me a SKIP function right at the START of the cut-scene.

I got bored of sitting back waiting for those precious few moments where I could actually PLAY. Then you get your moment and...it's over...back to another cut-scene...yawn...

The CoD games have been getting worse for this at every release. I'll give it three stars for the quality in the bits of the game that the developers let me play, even though it's the same old scripted, linear, run down a fixed route stuff.

A perfect example of style over substance, I'd be surprised if there was more than a couple of hours actual PLAYING time, rather than WAITING time. I'll not bother will the next release, I'll buy a cheesy action film, it's the same experience.

Yeah yeah, you love the multi-player, blah, blah, don't bother leaving such comments. Single player? Avoid it until it's in the bargain bin.

Agree completely on the cut scene problem. I am not interested in any storyline in any game. I just want to shoot things and blow up stuff. Favourite game so far is Black.
