As a Call of Duty fan, I will say that although this does not live up to the first Black Ops though it is much better than Modern Warfare 3, it does present a new playing field that immerses you in epic combat as well as a good plot with excellent characters and interesting villains. When looking at the campaign, the going back and forth between the past and the future is kind of cool to do. Playing the history of a character as well as playing in the year 2025 presents a nice variety in the story. Of course there is the multiplayer option as well. Just like any other Call of Duty game, multiplayer is a must-have. Without it, it's just plain boring. The available options of modes in multiplayer give it variety. One in particular that has grown on me is the One in the Chamber mode. One shot kills and if you miss, well you better run or you better fight with all you've got. Also thankfully the multiplayer mode is NOT infested with cheaters unlike modern warfare 3. And last but not least, zombies. Don't worry I haven't forgotten about our living dead friends. The introduction of zombies in games like these present a profound new experience that provides us with some good old fashioned shoot 'em up joys. Nuketown zombies as well as the disc content are just as fun as any other game. Team up with another person and just watch the bullets fly.
Black Ops 2 is a good game, no doubt about that. It is glitchy at times, but it is a great addition to the franchise and I am without a doubt satisfied with the final product.
