"Very different game."
4 stars"

This game is great! I got the game on release and I love it. The campaign for this game is awesome in the fact you can pick different paths to go during it and there are just some great scenes throughout the game!

BUT, I am a multiplayer person and the multiplayer in this is just awesome. There are your usual OP guns (SMG's with Silencers, Laser, Fast reload Laser increases hip fire Accuracy) and those people annoy me, but whats C.O.D. Without that- The scorestreaks of the game are great. It is not based on kills to get ‘Killstreaks’ but instead they are scorestreaks, for example, if you play Domination (game mode where you capture and hold three flags locations to win) you get 50 score for a kill, but if you kill someone when you are defending an objective you get 100 or 150 score for the kill, so overall you get rewarded for playing the objective. The scorestreak rewards are done in score so a UAV is : 425 score. So if you get a capture of a flag and kill a couple people you will get the UAV, but if you were to camp somewhere you would need to kill 9 people.

Zombies! The zombies in this is very unique, there are different gamemodes. If you really liked the survival mode for BO1 (normal zombies) then you may be dissapointed with the ones in BO2, you are stuck in a small-ish area where you can not buy too many doors and go adventuring but you have to survive in a set area.

Tranzit, on the other hand is an awesome mode where you travel on a bus to diffrent stops where you can buy guns, unlock doors, build stuff. And much more. It is an awesome game mode, in my opinion, and can be quite a challenge.

Well, I enjoy the game and alot of people seem to hate on it, but if you enjoy the COD series then why not-

"Faith restored"
5 stars"

I used to be a hardcore cod fan back in the cod 4 days and i watched as the call of duty franchise slowly went down the drain. I bought call of duty black ops 2 hoping that i would be suprised but expecting to be disapointed, what i actually got was a mind blowing experience from campaign to multiplayer. My faith has been restored and i cant wait to see how treyarch improve on this!

"Bettervthan the first"
5 stars"

Black Ops II Aftrr playing the game for a good period found to be a better than average . I move to multi plat and the fact you can set up your own as I call gurilla Training it opens up an entirely new dimension. Great graphic with seamless game play isca great start to the Multiplayer and DLC world the game totally transforms to a exciting time for all who venture. Now I thing if you bought the first dont let it sway your interest in BO2 for it curtainlly can be compared why both dig in to your pocket grab the credit card log on to Mighty Ape and order BLACK OPS 2 you want be disappointed ADAMMATRIX REVIEWS.

"Average"
3 stars"

So I have one plus for this game, the campaign. Treyarch really stepped up their game this time in the respects of the campaign, with some really cool additions such as the customise class ability before a mission and the shock missions.

Zombies is average, and different to the old slightly. I was hoping the 8 player maps would be insanely large with a great number of areas to go. I was hoping the games would go for hours, but I was bitterly disappointed. The maps we're tiny, with very few areas. Although I do have one plus from Zombies. TranZit mode was fun when you played with friends, trying to catch the bus in time, and running after it frantically was always a good laugh.

Now to the part I was most looking forward to, the multiplayer. HORRIBLE. Thats the word I would use to describe it. I wish Treyarch would have learnt from past mistakes. They really need to fix the match making system as sometimes even though I was told I had lots of possible games to join, I couldn't join any. I know this is not fault of my internet as I have extremely fast internet. Also I know I am not the only one experiencing this problem. Even though the game is only two days in, with all the beta testing, I would have expected them to balance the guns. While most guns are overpowered, the rest are underpowered. There is no middle. Also, the fact that once you get shot, there is no chance to get away, loses your chance of gaining a long killstreak.

Overall, I am bitterly disappointed Treyarch, you could have done better. Yet I still find myself buying a season pass just to see what they do with zombies. I am still yet deciding whether spending 140$ on the hardened edition was the right choice; although the case and stuff that came with it is insane.

So for all these reasons I give it 3 stars. 1 more star than I gave MW3, so Treyarch won that war.

"Save your money"
1 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

After so much anticipation and playing the game in the Campaign which cuts to sequences in the best parts removing any excitement on completing a level. The multiplayer is even worse- Treyarch need to realise that they have just recreated Modern Warfare 3's annoying Multiplayer set up. What a dissapointing game- They have removed the ability to Combat Train and hone some basic skills before getting wasted by the American on cocaine. I imagine that after 2 weeks everyone will be going back to the first Black Ops to play what was a fair platform for players of different skill to meet. Now, if you are mediocre, you will be teamed up with and against someone mediocre. Save your money.

"Amazing"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I love the campaign in BO2 because everything has taken a new path and you can choose 1 of 3 different ways to end the game. Also the multiplayer and zombies have been enhanced with more HD looking graphics. Finally the DLC's that are coming out are the best part in my opinion.

"More than I expected"
3 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This game is great, really fun to play online multiplayer and with Zombies. Personally I have never really been into the COD Campaign and have not played through it yet. Other than that it is super fun and is not as frustrating as other COD games. Great Product and is worth the buy, Just wish I could have waited two days to get it on special!

"zombies are fun to shoot at"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

The campain has the absolute worst most predictable plot I've ever seen, but that's not what the games is all about. The multiplayer is outstanding in every way, completely customiseable classes, bots and LOTS OF EXPLOSIVES

if you enjoyed black ops 1.. stick with it. zombies arent as good as number one, but a few changes are much better. campaign is confusing, but still playable. and multiplayer is same old same old with crap maps

"If you loved Black Ops 1, don't buy two"
1 stars"

I loved the zombies in number 1, this was the precise reason why I brought number two. The zombies is far too different in the second one. Also online play is rubbish, I bought it the first day it came out here and already the Americans were on level 80 Prestige level 2..only good thing I would say is the campaign, incorporating FPS and strategy was a cool idea, other than that..Don't buy this game

"A beautiful game."
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Black Ops 2 have raised the bar in HD games. The guns, the setting and all the players are rendered beautifully and look amazing on a high definition TV.

The gameplay is fast paced and a great game to play with friends. I found myself having more fun when I am playing with a few friends on my team.

I give this game a 8/10 and highly recommend it. Christmas is coming up, and the price is very good at the moment.

"Amazing Game Play and New Stylish Features"
5 stars"

This is truly a game you will want in your Call of Duty collection, the amazing DLC you can get from this game is awesome. Turned you can become the zombie. In Mob of the Dead fight your way out of Alcatraz prison. And with 2 amazing DLC packs the fun never ends. Zombies in Nuketown. All new personalization packs with some new skins being 3D. And to finish it off a new gun the Peacekeeper and quite a few new maps with Nuketown from Black ops 1 re imagined in the future. This is something you don't want to miss, I could write about this all day.

"Interesting Story alright game play"
3 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Black ops 2 has been known for bad story line but one player is never what we play FPS for is it- Minus conkers bad fur day of course but when it comes to multi-player the maps are bigger the depth is wider and everyone can have a better time. The twist in the end of the story line although it was a short story it still bought you into the game and allowed you to get close to these people. It wasn't horrible game like everyone says its decent. It's one of those games that have a bad reputation but you need to play for yourself to judge it. With all the DLC there making for it just gets better each day.

"Great buy" Purchased on Mighty Ape
