Treyarchs only masterpiece.
15 April 2013 | by See all my reviews

Well I just played a couple of hours of this game, why was I playing it? because Black ops 2 is complete and utter trash. I was nervous about coming back and running into hackers, well luckily I didn't play against any. I actually ended up having a truck load of fun, I mean I was so excited with how good the game runs and from the lack of modern Call of Duty BS, this game is where it's at. You can actually rush around and get great scores, in the two hours I have played on April.15, I can throughly say I had more fun playing WaW than the 3 and a half days I have playing Black ops 2. Seriously, what happened Treyarch, how did you guys screw up so bad with Blops 2. The multi-player in this game is purely gun on gun, no stupid ass kill streaks, all purpose sniper rifles, no lag cutter shot guns, no drop-shotting try-hards, no infamous Blops lag, just pure gun play. Which means I can destroy the competition. You could be on a 2 bar and still go 26 and 5, if your on a two bar in Blops 2, well I bet you know what thats like, it's an automatic rage quit. I haven't been this happy playing a shooters multi-player since MW2 or when I went back to cod 4 to take a break from MW3, that's a long time to be miserable playing shooters. It was crazy how much better I am at this game compared to Blops 2, let me rephrase that, how much less bulls***y it is than Blops 2. Man I even got 7 kills from a single artillery strike, I've never seen that before.

The Game: This is going to be brief considering how old this game is, and how trey-arch has been doing the same stuff. The guns are better than they have ever been or ever will be, nothing beats the classic ww2 weapons. They are all deadly and are very unique unlike todays cod games. The sound is also at an all time high. The classic zombies still feel more genuine and creepy than they are in latter titles. The campaign is great. The graphics still look better than any other cod.

This is my favourite CoD, it shows that simple multi-player is how this series should be, this was the last great Call of Duty, it's sad really. Try to experience it one more time before the few hundred players that remain leave.
