As had to be expected, adding DirectX 11 support made Call of Duty: Black Ops II a more demanding title, but not to an extreme by any means. Compared to our tests conducted two years ago on the original Black Ops title, the second installment saw...

Everyone loves to roll their eyes a t the thought of a “new” Call of Duty game; after all, we’ve played games from this franchise a half-dozen times now, and the bloom is off the rose. But don’t be so quick to judge, because the newest installment of...

I think that Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 is a great shooter and will be enjoyed by many. I was honestly a skeptic coming into it, too many times have I shelled out the $60 for a Call of Duty title and been let down by how little they changed, or how...

Black Ops II is the eighth major Call of Duty (COD) title to be released in as many years. The series' staggering popularity shows no signs of diminishing, with the latest game reportedly earning more than $500 million within its first 24 hours of...

Another solid outing for the competitive multiplayer, but the single-player campaign continues to plod along...

The sheer spectacle of the singleplayer campaign makes the unpleasant characters and nonsense plot a lot more fun than they possibly deserve to be, while multiplayer is a little more colourful and little more open. As a package, there's an awful lot crammed in here even if it's short on surprises.

Sequels in video game franchises are similar. Treyarch's Black Ops 2 is the equivalent to the Pacquiao vs. Marquez IV match in magnitude in the video game world and is expected to break sales records worldwide. Critics are quick to point out the linear...

In short, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 is worth buying. It offers some great battle sections and a good level of quality which many games lack but at the same time it could have been so much more. Today we take a look at what isn't great in Black Ops...

Even though the Zombies mode isn't up to snuff, Black Ops 2 keeps stagnation at bay with a campaign that tries a few new things that mostly succeed and well designed...

Call of Duty: Black Ops II is probably the most highly anticipated games of the Call of Duty series if not for the entire year. With all the trailers and leaks of information that have happened in the past couple of months, it’s hard not to realise...

The year is 2025. David Mason, the son of Alex Mason, is the focal-point of our continuing story which is told through the actions of Frank Woods, Raul Menendez and Alex Mason soon after the events of the original Black Ops . The world is under a serious...

Call of Duty: Black Ops II has not precisely been at the top of my wish list. After Modern Warfare 3, I became quite disillusioned by the entire Call of Duty franchise. Playing the same Michael Bay-esque explosion fest over and over, is simply not all...

It's Call of Duty time! With Black Ops II, it's once again Treyarch's time to release a game in the long running series. Have they managed to release something new and innovative, or is this another exercise in mediocre repetition?Call of Duty: Black Ops...

Though zombies mode is stagnating, the rest of Black Ops II is lively, and it's great to see some shifting in the familiar structure. Developer Treyarch's storytelling prowess has once again resulted in an engaging, exciting campaign, and the addition of league...

A sinister villain, some tough choices, and a new kind of multiplayer arena invigorate the reliably intense action in Call of Duty: Black Ops...

Perhaps my chief concern in recommending Black Ops 2 , is the feeling of almost arrogant assurance that Treyarch, and Activision in turn, don't have to vary their game. Simply release it and let the hype take care of the rest. Such confidence belies...

A great addition to the CoD series, and our favourite since the first Modern...

You had me there for a minute, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2. I thought you made the complete near-future leap, and thanks to a surprisingly subdued and touching opening cutscene, I even believed you would take the Michael Bay film of video games in a...

Though hokey, tired and periodically shambolic, the campaign has a few new tricks, but it’s the fulsome multiplayer that saves Blops 2 from...

These are the backbone of the U.S. military's air power in 2025, apparently. Call of Duty: Black Ops II certainly isn't the most demanding game out there, but its most demanding sequences do warrant a decent GPU. We consider the Radeon HD 6670 DDR3...
