How e-sports, Pick 10 and tweaked scoring change the pace

Since permanently changing competitive online multiplayer with 2007's Modern Warfare, the Call of Duty games have largely settled into refining their established ideas, making small but significant improvements with each new instalment. So while Treyarch may not be revolutionising CoD's online modes with Black Ops II, it is looking to evolve them in substantial ways.... read more

If I'm honest, it still doesn't make me scream like a schoolgirl. I'm looking more forward to Gears Judgement and Watchdogs.

Well, that's the schoolgirl demographic out of the running. Sorry, Treyarch.

If King Kong ripped through my office wall, grabbed me and took me to the roof I'd probably scream like a school girl. Ergo this game is not a giant ape.

What point that makes I'm not sure but I'm with the non-screaming school-girl, think I can wait for this, maybe end of next year perhaps. I do like the odd zombie romp but it's nowhere near early buy for me.

Boom - there go the ape-lovers too. At this rate, nobody's going to buy the thing. Tough times ahead, Activision.

I would buy it, but having recently played the excellent Spec Ops The Line I'm now doubting the moral validity of war and it's representation in video games :wink:

I think about 90% of the people buying this game are just getting this for the zombies, me included. But I believe that one of the reasons people don't find this appealing is that it is called "black ops" 2, and considering the "fact" that the first "game" was "dreadful", "people" think this will also be "dreadful".

Haven't bought a CoD since the first MW, hasn't really interested me but im intrigued how this one pans out, looks like the most interesting one for years. Couldn't give a flying (ginger) fish about the zombies, and im not even a shooter fan really but they've had criticism for not changing the series and they've responded so credit where it's due. Scepticism abounds as they surely can't change it that much and risk upsetting the core fans, but the stuff i'm hearing is sufficient i'm keeping an eye out. Got a lot of mates who are big fans so i hope it's good for their sake at least as i know most of them were disappointed with MW3.

I don't know about getting this. MW3, while not my most favourite game, is still a game that offers, essentially, big dumb fun. Put me in a game with a riot shield or a tactical knife then I have a whale of a time ( I wonder if it will be my friend), and overall, I think that the only big issue I have with it is that the maps can turn into a campfest, but Treyarch say that they have sorted this out. While I do prefer BF3, that too has the potential for big dumb of a different variety (how much C4 can I humanely put on the front of my quad bike? Then drive it into the nearest tank!).

Only problem this autumn, too many good games, not enough time (or money) to play them all :( , but I suppose that BlOps II is somewhere on my list of games, after Halo 4, Dishonored and Borderlands 2
