1.0 out of 5 stars nothing was done right and they ruined zombies mode with fire and blurry screens,the game is ridiculous, November 14, 2012
= Fun:1.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Call of Duty: Black Ops II - PlayStation 3 (Video Game)
theres too many things wrong to list, but ill focus on a couple.
right now online play doesnt work since the servers are being horrible.

nothing has been fixed that was wrong with the first black ops game.
multiplayer still stinks because they still dont know how to program the game to make it spawn you at ANY RANDOM point of the map istead of the same preset spawn points.
People just have to leave the ten or so spawn points on the map and they can wait for you to spawn and kill you within seconds of spawning.
WHY IS IT SO HARD TO PROGRAM A GAME THAT CAN SPAWN YOU AT ANY RANDOM SPOT ON THE MAP AND NEVER THE SAME PLACE TWICE!!! this could be analogized to playing a foorball game online but the quarterback cant throw the ball anyplace on the field he can only throw the ball to a few preset catch points/areas ,so every time theres a pass theres an interception! This has been a flaw inthe series since day one, if they cant fix it its time for them to scrap the entire engine and start over from scratch!

zombies is horrible now, and there is no 8 player co-op survival modes like was being buzzed about,theres only the stupid 8 player 4vs4 ridiculous mode which is so dumb and pointless I cant even put it into words. there is no host migration system during zombies survival mode play so if the host disconnects then the game still just suddenly ends. the graphics are much worse and fake looking than part 1 and voice talent that was changed is horrible. They made alot of stupid pointless changes that make things worse, and left all the flaws and problems from the first black ops intact. For instance, It still bothers you about things like pressing rb to throw the grenades back while you are trying to do something imperitively important like buy a gun off the wall or escape thru a bought door,so you just die becuz you cant open a door or buy a gun because it only cares about you pressing rb to throw a grenade back and wont let you do anything else until the trivial grenade issue goes away(trivial because grenades cant kill you!Because holding square button down is still used to do 99 percent of your actions including reload but you cant do any of that stuff if a grenade is near you which makes zero sense.

the worst thing is:
THEY RUINED ALL THE ZOMBIE MAPS BY ADDING SOME KIND OF STUPID LAVA OR FIRE crap TO ALL THE ZOMBIE MAPS !SO EVERY TIME YOU WALK any place outdoors YOU GET BURNED up AND TAKE A HIT MARKER AND IT BLURS YOUR screen VISION real bad AND YOU CANT SEE anything but painful blur for several seconds(and it keeps repeating so its perpetual)! AND THE FIRE IS LIKE EVERYWHERE EXCEPT INSIDE BUILDINGS WHICH IS JUST SO UNBELIEVABLE STUPID ITS LIKE HAVING AN EYE EXAM WHILE YOU ARE PLAYING. THEY NEED TO REMOVE THIS FIRE DAMAGE and blurred screen NONSENSE crap A.S.A.P!
if they dont fix this problem, then the maps are unplayable and the game is unplayable and ruined forever. Also the zombies explode in your face and that blurs the screen and your vision too. also theres some toxic gas crap you can walk thru outside that hurts your character and yes that also blurs the screen and hurts your actual eyes too. Thats all the creative geniuses there could come up with is blurred screen? Better just to turn the screen black so you cant see anything rather than mess with peoples eyesight and blur the screens! I hope people get eye damage from all the blurred screens that appear constantly in this game, and then hire lawyers to sue the company for being so dumb as to do this.Who would put tons of these intentionally blurry and painful to watch screens on a tv screen?Its hard to believe that any group of people could of agreed that any of this was ok, let alone fun in any way. It literally hurts your eyes to see so much crap getting purposely blurred in and out on your screen.
maybe they could also have the screen turn from really dark to ultra bright white suddenly for several seconds and see if they can hurt your eyes that way,oh wait they did that in black ops 1-but maybe they should even try to do some weirder stuff to make your tv lamp blow up in the process, oh wait that already happened to me while i was playing this game and a nuke went off in zombies (just a coincidence im sure their lawyers will say..but my tv lamp was not due to burn out yet!).They did so many stupid terrible things, They might as well try adding strobe lights to the game that keep turning on and off and see how many epileptic seizure they can cause too,while they are at it!

I couldn't agree with you more. Treyarch boasted about how much of a new and better experience zombies was going to be and gave it all the hype but to me (and a lot others), it completely FAILED! They took a HUGE step BACK. I NEVER envisioned that zombies was going to be utterly this BAD! I had such great expectations for zombies and this entire game! As far as the game itself, the most annoying sound they used was the running footsteps! I literally get so tired of listening to that sound that I use the "silence" perk just so I don't have to hear that! I wish I could return the game myself. Unfortunately, I purchased the Hardened Edition. :( But I'll be playing it. . . .why/ cause I forked over $80 (and $60 for my son to play on his PS3)!

thanks I still agree with myself about zombies stinking in part 2 except for the fact that the NUKETOWN 2025 zombies map is actually pretty decent, Its kind of small but its actually pretty cool-it even has the original sound effects.It almost seems like they spent more time on the nuketown map than all the other maps combined. I dont really like how they made the perkacola machines spawn later in the game but that maps is pretty decent. But zombies in black ops 1 is still better in every way, any map from black ops 1 is better than the new nuketown map in black ops 2.the new perk tombstone only benefits people that stink at playing. the rest of the zombie maps, including tranzit mode where you make stupid equipment out of parts, is complete junk. I STILL WOULD WANT TO JUST BUY SOME MORE ZOMBIE MAP PACKS FOR BLACK OPS 1 instead of black ops 2- and they are fools for not continuing to support black ops 1. looks trying to push everyone into playing black ops 2 instead when the graphics and gameplay are just much worse in black ops 2 and black ops 1 clearly had alot more time talent and energy put into its design. if only people would boycott black ops 2 and demand more map packs for black ops 1 instead!
