3.0 out of 5 stars An unenjoyable, frustrating experience, November 16, 2012

This review is from: Call of Duty: Black Ops II - Xbox 360 (Video Game)
I attempt to play every Call Of Duty when it is released. Like many other reviews on this site, I agree on many aspects of other reviews. The graphics are extremely downgraded from previous installments. How does a newer game have worse graphics than a previous installment? Air strikes look like Hot Wheel vehicles dropping fire works onto the field. Some of the maps are too small, and there is no way to avoid dying immediately after spawning. At one point I died 3 times from kill streak rewards before even taking a step. Hit detection is horrible, never before have you needed to unload so many bullets into someone, only to have them turn around and kill you like it's the norm. I've also had hit markers on head shots. Spawning is another huge let down, it's sad when you get more kills hiding in a corner than moving around the battlefield. 75% of my deaths are from behind me, when you spawn and move, someone already has you from behind. Guns are also similar to each other, and even assault rifles are weak compared to every smg available, making weapon selection limited and pointless. It's frustrating when spraying a weapon is more accurate than a assault rifle aiming down the sights. Call Of Duty is still fun because its competitive and intense, but if that's all it has going for it, I will go elsewhere. Zombies is extremely repetitive and unrewarding, I thought there would be some kind of advancement through levels, but its the same old crap. Wave after wave of the same crap. The single player is a consistent shooting gallery, proving one man can kill hundreds without breaking a sweat. Strike Force missions are a boring take on Special Op missions from previous titles. Overall a disappointment.

I thought the graphics were the best in the bunch. For example, weapon detail is much higher BO and on part with MW3 and MW2. Maps have a lot more detail to them.
