So with that said, the story. I thoroughly enjoyed the story campaign. As this relates back to the first BOs I would advise you play that first or certain parts will be lost on you. Jumping in time from flashbacks of the 1980's and early 90's to what is present year 2025, the game has you blowing up more metal than Michael Bay could ever dream of. The 2025 setting is not so far in the future to be unbelievable in it's sci-fi weapon setup, it does it really well. The Story also has important sub plots, where you are forced to make a choice, and what you choose will alter the outcome of the story, meaning multiple playthroughs are a must if you want to see everything. It took a little under 7 hours to finish the campaign on Veteran difficulty, but it was a quick playthrough so you can add a few more hours onto this if you take things a little slower.
Next up Zombies. Well, it's Zombies. Extra game modes have been added this time where 2 teams fight off hordes to be the last team standing. It's just one new mode but shakes things up a bit. Maps have also increased in size which again adds something a little different. If you are a fan of Treyarchs previous Zombie outings, then there is no reason you shouldn't like this.
Lastly, its Multiplayer. Let's face it, this is where the money is. This is what COD is all about. But ultimately it's where it faulters for me. Don't get me wrong, it's still fun fest frantic action as always, and I'll ignor the connection issues, as they'll get ironed soon.Read more ›
I have no problem with people who enjoy the series though, as truthfully, every entry has been at least decent and a good way of whiling away a few hours. I do believe it's important for developers to strive to push the industry forward however, or else we'll end up playing the same games over and over. Innovation is what makes the game industry great. From titles like Okami to recent games like Heavy Rain and Catherine, when developers take big risks, sometimes the results can be truly amazing. But recently there seems to be far too many shooters releasing every year and not much else. And even developers like Square-Enix and Capcom have admitted to trying to appeal to FPS gamers with their titles. (Looking at you FF XIII and Resi 6.)
So with that said, you must wonder why I don't despise this game. It's simple: Treyarch have tried their best to change things up. And sometimes just seeing a developer putting effort into their games is enough to earn a gamers respect, even if all their ideas don't work out perfectly.
So what makes Black Ops 2 different from the rest of the games in the series and my second favourite Call Of Duty after COD4? Well firstly the campaign is very enjoyable and actually warrants several playthroughs because of the series first branching storyline. At certain points in the game, you will have to make decisions which will effect the overall storyline.Read more ›
What currently lets it down though is the online infrastructure - sometimes it is fine, but at other times it continually crashes and freezes the console necessitating a hard reset / recovery. I've just spent half an hour trying to play TD and only managed to join one game half way through - the rest of the time was spent in crashes or reseting before I eventually gave up. No doubt they will sort the network issues in the coming weeks but until they do the online play can be a bit of a waste of time.
