Call of Duty: Black Ops II is from the get go a disastrous and boring sequel in the Call of Duty series. The Single player perspective still continually a Michael Bay experience on auto pilot. Multiplayer an even more simplistic experience with sub machines wreaking more havoc then any other gun can attempt to keep up with, simply put there's never been more balancing needed in a game then evident in this title. The maps shrinking in size even more then before and the game types although more numerous and diversifying shed no light on ever improving the experience. Max players for most game types still shrinking to as low as 6-8 players max. The ranking system itself a quick and cheap ploy to follow Blizzard's ranking model in Starcraft II. What could you expect really the two are in bed with each other.
The progressiveness of the multiplayer experience is really gone, its shrunk to a run and gun madness fest worse then ever noted in any of the prequels before. It's no wonder Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare has the biggest following of any of the titles to date. The cash cow although beginning to show signs of shrinking is still being milked for every penny's worth. Black Ops II couldn't be a bigger disappointment (Actually It could be). You cannot host your own servers but instead follow disastrously in the footsteps of Modern Warfare 2 with Peer to peer connections an unsteady mess of bandwidth usage.
Zombies has really not changed at all, in fact maps have been simplified, an extra game mode toward the game itself doesn't really succeed in adding even the slightest bit of juice to an otherwise over time boring game mode.
A game definitely not worth the money that's spent on it. And should be avoided.
