3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing but has some redeeming qualities, November 14, 2012
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Call of Duty: Black Ops II - Xbox 360 (Video Game)
I'm a big fan of multiplayer shooters. COD, BF, Killzone, MAG,and Halo are all games that I play off and on and invest in with every iteration. I have to say that I have mixed feelings on the new Black Ops. I usually run through the single player campaign first before going to multiplayer, but was unable to get through it this time around. The graphics are very cartoony and made it really difficult to get into a war game when you are shooting characters that appear as though they came out of a Disney movie. Switching to multiplayer at first was a drag as most of the new maps seemed to encourage camping and sniping with lots of corners and large empty run corridors. Luckily my version came with the nuketown map, and since switching over to 24/7 nuketown, I've been having a blast and have been appreciating the game a little more. Weapons, kill streaks, perks, are for the most part the same with some "future" enhancements. I would not say these enhancements make it more desirable to play, but adds a slight cool factor to watch.

Multiplayer server: There appears to be a lot of lag and disconnects which really surprised me since that was a big issue when the first black ops came out. So if you have not bought this game yet, and you are able to wait. Highly recommend waiting till mid-December. Usually there is a temporary $20 price drop around that time to encourage xmas sales. Hopefully they will fix the server issues by that time as well. Another add - you can get probation if you constantly end a game before the match ends. Which the first time I saw the probation info, I was ticked off as I was constantly being disconnected from the game due to server issues.

So what do I like? I love the combat training with the bots. My kids love to play COD with me, but they get creamed when playing other online players. Setting up bots, and we can play for hours just having fun without them getting frustrated with constant respawn timers. I do like several of the kill streaks, especially the dogs (welcome back killer puppies) and the stealth helicopter. I also like how the perks are set-up to make it difficult to hide from UAVs and Radar blips to prevent frustrating ninja campers. Controls, zoom graphics, and level progression is very smooth and clean. So a 3 star game, that I wish was half the price.
