    dmullig2's Call of Duty: Black Ops II (360)

    [November 18, 2012 07:43:04 PM]
    This week, I got the new iteration of Call of Duty. I wasnít really excited about Black Ops II, but upon further playing, it has been surprisingly fun. I havenít really gotten into a Call of Duty game since Modern Warfare 2. Every iteration after that game seemed to be repeating the same formula, and with its yearly releases, it eventually got really repetitive. However, with Black Ops II, the developers really seemed to make things different and make the series less stagnant, and it looks like they have accomplished just that.

    Iíll say that the campaign isnít really the best part of the game. The stories before werenít really anything to write home about, but in this iteration it felt overly complicated and corny. The multiplayer on the other hand has undergone a significant change to the status quo. The new create a class system has been overhauled into something called ďpick ten.Ē This system allows the player to pick any ten items, perks, grenades, etc., and put them in their class. At first I thought that this might unbalance the game, but in reality, it actually helps in making the game less frustrating. This new system doesnít really provide any overpowered class and it really gives the player to build a class that suits them. It really is an improvement over previous versions of the multiplayer.

    The biggest change is probably in the side mode called Zombies. In previous games, players were regulated to one map and after a while it could get repetitive, until the developer released new maps. In Black Ops II, there are 4 or 5 maps all interconnected with one road that a bus drives along. This really improves the zombies mode, as it gets less stale after a while. New places to explore and a new mechanic, the bus, really adds to this already great game mode. Add on the new head to head zombies game type and custom zombie games, Black Ops II has really changed the Call of Duty status quo for the better.
