Fans of the highly acclaimed military shooter game series, Call of Duty or “COD”, as they call it, had been eagerly waiting for this new title in series, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2. So how is it, really? How different is it from the previous titles? What new additions Treyarch, the developers, has made? Let us take a glance.
Overview and Features
Military shooters or war video games have become quite repetitive in that they have quite a similar story template, and we all know how it is going to pan out. Therefore, it looks as Treyarch decided to change all that here and give the series a much-needed jerk in the arm. On so many levels, Black Ops 2 is by far the best title in the series, simply for its no holds barred action and shooting style of gameplay as well as the spectacular narrative, which constantly throws you from the past to the future and back again. It is the fastest, the most electric title in the series and a terrifically straightforward explosive game at that.
Many unique additions have been made to increase the replay value of the game, like unlocking new weapons each time you play a previous level and selecting a load out for each level in the campaign mode too. The league play in the multiplayer mode is one hell of a winner; it is quite possibly the best new thing to come out. In addition, Treyarch’s popular zombie modes enhance the gameplay largely, and the developers’ aim to push the boundaries of the series has truly been achieved with Call of Duty: Black Ops 2.
• Brilliant new weapons and tactics
• Electric pace, super strong narrative
• No holds barred straightforward action
• Excellent multiplayer mode, complete winner
• Some of the new weapons and gadgets are difficult to get hold of
Treyarch has probably delivered the finest title in the series so far, pushing the envelope of the military shooter genre to an entirely new and different level. If this is the future of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, then it sure is an enjoyable one.
