Review No. 23 Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 - Xbox 360 (18+)

Strong Points:
Great multiplayer
Amazing graphics
Brilliant zombie mode

Well I have to admit I didn't want to buy this game as I thought the first Black Ops was rubbish! But I really have enjoyed this game, the graphics are amazing, weapons are amazing and the games modes are amazing.

In this game, you can play mulitiplayer on your own. You are able to deploy a certain amount of bots to fight against and to also be on your team, this is a great feature to have when you are offline. The 'create a class' is unlocked straight away when using mulitplayer.

You can also play with others of course; in classic COD greatness in 15 maps all varying the gameplay.

Single Player
Black Ops 2 is the first Call of Duty game to feature a branching storyline and multiple endings which is a good edition to a tried and tested formula. The story was good overall and the graphics are just amazing, as is the basic gameplay. The AI of the Strike Force missions were a bit disappointing

Conclusion: overall this is a great addition to a tried and tested franchise.

Rating: 83%

Thanks for reading, Satamer.
