Release Date - 13/11/2012
The rumours, the whispers, the hush-hush conversations are over. Call of Duty: Black Ops II has arrived.
Heralded as the most daring Call of Duty game in years, and boasting the most impressive graphics in the series to date, Black Ops II on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC and Wii U takes the fight to the future where a second cold war is dominated by new weapons and technology.
The campaign mode spans multiple decades, from the 1980s to the 2020s, mixing up locations, tactics and weapons in a series of missions led by Alex Mason and his son David. There's also the addition of sandbox-style Strike Force missions, and a branching plot where how you play will dictate where and how the story ends.
Multiplayer is equally ambitious, reworking the class system, and evolving Killstreaks into Scorestreaks to reward different ways of playing. And with the chance to have up to six teams battling at once, this is as much an e-sport as a simple multiplayer melee.

What's most impressive is how Treyarch has managed to broaden the game's appeal without sacrificing the hardcore fans. It really is the strongest and most surprising Call of Duty game since the first Modern Warfare, and comes highly recommended to both fans and newcomers alike. read more
