This review is from: Call of Duty: Black Ops II - PC (Video Game)
Overall this game is great but I have a few gripes that I would like to get off my chest
Multiplayer: Over all great fast paced action game more leaning towards MW3 like experience than black ops 1. With that said the cons in my opinion is the perks feel more washed down than in black ops. There are no pro perks either. I personally love to just knife in the game and I'm glad it supports that, but the extreme conditioning doesn't allow me to run forever so I'm forced to slow down and that ruins my entire flow of the game. The game tries to cater too much on balance and fairness it almost dwindles down the experience to blandness.
Campaign: Overall its the same old thing call of duty's been doing, with some twists and branching story line. But good overall
Zombies: I don't know why but it seems like its missing something. The tranzit map is the biggest in the series but thats pretty much all you get. There are no separate levels like in black ops so you're pretty much in the same scenery, and no diversity. there is an option to play the different sections within the tranzit map. But once again whats missing is the amount of easter eggs and just that feeling of exploration. It feels more like an arena match more than an expansive level with many secrets to unfold. I'm sure they will release new maps on the DLC though. Until then the first black ops zombies is far superior compared to this one.
The initial installment was I'd say more than 15 gigs of content. What I am not happy about are the patches that take a long time to download.
One zombies patch that was just released was just shy of 3 gigs. a 3 gig patch? What in the world requires 3 gigs to patch? I thought I was downloading a whole other game, or at least a new level in zombies or something. Whats worse is I had to wait over 3 hours for it to download because it was so slow for some reason. And then when I booted up the game, there was virtually no difference! What the hell! What was that all about?
I do like the game overall. But I think its healthy to inform people about the problems also. thats all
