Buy it on day...90,
This review is from: Call of Duty: Black Ops II - Playstation 3 (Video Game)
Buy this in few weeks and it will be fine. It's buggy and online is just a mess for PS3. CoD games get frequent updates and I'm sure they will have this sorted out in a couple weeks. So if you can avoid freaking out and melting down, read on.
1) If you gave this one star, you probably shouldn't have bought it (or didn't and are trolling). It is exactly what you expect from any CoD game.
2) The PS3 version online is jacked up in the first couple day. THIS IS NOTHING NEW FOR CoD OR ANY OTHER FPS. It is simply a continuing tradition of shooters not working right on release. A couple weeks from now, things will smooth out and the game will work fine.
3) Zombie mode is bigger and better. It is really fun and a great co-op mode. It's still not Left4Dead, but it does offer some replay and something for people that don't like being cursed at by ignorant people online.
4) The campaign has MORE to offer than any of the recent CoD's. I still don't like it, but I never have.
5) When online works, the game is okay. It's super fast, twitchy and the guns all feel "samey", it's more rock paper scissors and online connection speed than my gun is stronger than yours (not including shotguns/snipers). Killstreaks have been dialed way back, so that's a plus or minus depending on your take. I'm just getting into league play, but it's interesting for people that enjoy playing right and work as a team. The perks and unlocks have been changed, but it's still the same fomula. Perform missions, get kills, get XP and unlock things; it's in a new wrapper though.
All in all, it's a CoD game. It's not the worst game ever and even though there are bugs on release, the campaign is super high quality, zombie mode is terrific and with the addtion of league play, online could have some legs for people like me that would rather play with a team that works together instead of a bunch of boosters and corner campers.

Do you like CoD games - then yes. Did you like Zombies, then yes. Do you think it's a boring rehash, then no.

I'm not a fan of multiplayer. I find that it's just filled with people who run and gun everywhere. Is there any fun to be had in single player mode after finishing the campaign?

I don't know how old you are, but in a real firefight, "corner campers" make it out of in country alive.

But in virtual reality, you can respawn, greatly increasing your personal safety factor. Go ahead and be brave! Courage doesn't cost any REAL blood like it does "in country" so cowering in a corner is unnecessary.

I'm almost 40, it's a videogame, corner camping ruins the "game". If the CoD ever involves actual death, I'll probably go ahead and quit playing.

Dude I def enjoy working together as a team, but I don't get to play with friends I've made online all the time because they're in a different country. What's your game tag? I send you an invite. Mine is rece911.
