I've got 3 knocking around and still haven't started it. I loved 2 until the end where it just went wrong IMO, though I never knew about the side quests after the end so maybe I should go back.Black Ops 2 - 9/10
It probably doesn't deserve a 9 for all its faults but I just really loved it.
+Great story. Takes a while to get going and is a bit all over the place at first, but it's the best story there has been in a COD game IMO.
+Menendez is a great villian. He's as memorable as Andrew Ryan IMO and that is a f**king bold statement.
+It's COD so you know the combat is smooth and there's loads of exciting set pieces.
+On the whole Treyarch have finally matched IW in terms of offering a proper single player campaign. If I never knew I would honestly think this was an Infinity Ward game.
+Fantastic replay value with the different decisions you can make and how certain results in missions changes the story. Also all the unlockables and the ability to change load and perks etc makes the game much more re playable than previous entries in the series.
+Multiplayer makes a proper return after the disaster of MW3
+Zombies is improved and has an easy mode so you can just f**k about on it in single player without getting raped. That's really important IMO cos before I could never be arsed learning what to do or where to go cos it was too hard.
+If you liked the previous COD games you will love it...
-..If you didn't it won't change your mind
-The strike force missions are at best a mixed bag in terms of quality and for the most part aren't well executed.
-COD gameplay on the whole is cheap and I can imagine this game being very frustrating on the higher difficulties.
-They still didn't quite match IW in terms of characters. There's no Soap or Price here. Mason is your ultra generic American action hero and his commanding officer reminded me of the 'Black' guy Robert Downey Jnr plays in Tropic Thunder
Pure blaxploitation. I ended up not minding Harper though even though I hated him at the start, and of course Menendez is class. Too many Americans though overall.
