Game is great, optimization for the Playstation 3 isn't.
on January 3, 2013
Essentially this is the best Call of Duty game to date - that is, while it is functioning correctly. Black Ops II unfortunately is STILL (as of 1/3/2013) experiencing numerous connectivity problems in both Zombies and Multiplayer modes. Migrating host often fails, the game will freeze up (causing you to restart the PS3 manually), and finding a game can be endless if you change the search options to anything but standard connectivity.
All in all, if the technical problems did not exist (and I assume sooner or later they will be patched) this would be an outright 5-star winner-of-a-game. It's SO much fun. As a COD fan, I find the multiplayer maps and gameplay to be slightly improved, campaign to be just abut what you would expect from the COD series, and Zombies mode is more fun than ever. Not much has changed in Zombies mode by the way, but they have added a few twists / new creatures such as the lightning man and the Grief and Tranzit settings are incredibly addicting.
I *would* recommend this product, even with the sometimes overbearing technical difficulties. Ultimately, they will fix it, and it's a great game.
