Raul Menendez: ...Opulence is sinful, and we all pay for it. Los Angeles was the flagship of their absurd materialism, so I destroyed it. They thought I wanted to kill the president.

The Future is Black.
15 November 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

While the future may indeed be black be in this gloomy, believable fiction written by established Hollywood writer David Goyer, the future for the Call of Duty franchise certainly is not. Game developer Treyarch Studios has delivered a game that not only lives up to the franchise's reputation, but is an incredible game overall.

Call of Duty has pioneered the shooting genre for years now, and Black Ops II is a testament to why that is. Sharp, responsive controls; constantly evolving game-play; writing that is both compelling and touching; Black Ops II is an absorbing experience.

The story follows several characters, some from other Call of Duty games, but anything relevant to the plot is recapped in character dialogue. You'll tread in the boots of many different soldiers throughout the course of the game, but you'll slowly realize that if Black Ops II does have a main character, it would be the antagonist, Raul Menendez.

Contrary to the black and white stories typically told by war movies and war video games alike, you will truly sympathize with Menendez as you learn more about him. Maybe he's even right in his cause.

The story is far stronger than any first person shooter should have, and I recommend playing it just for the story. Oh, and the story has several different endings based on player input, so be careful out there! Long time fans of the series will be pleased to see the competitive multi-player seeing its first major advancement in years. There is even a zombies mode that is on par with any action survival game out there. This game is massive.

The future is not black for this franchise if Treyarch Studios keeps making games like this. See you on the battlefield!
