Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 offers very little in terms of innovation, but Veteran players will feel right at home.
It’s another year, and that means it’s time for yet another Call of Duty title. 2012 is Treyarch’s turn with Call of Duty: Black Ops 2. Treyarch hopes to bring some fresh content like new Strikeforce missions to the Call of Duty mix, and at the same time offer Call of Duty veterans an experience they know and love.
Black Ops 1 was such an amazing game. There was just something about it that felt right. The campaign was very focused and didn’t consist of character jumping every other mission, and had a story that was really intriguing. The multiplayer felt incredibly balanced, and the map design was the best the series had ever seen. Black Ops 2 had quite a big name to live up to.
The Campaign in Black Ops 2 is very average.
Players take control of a few different characters, some that are new and some that are familiar. The main character is David Mason, son of Alex Mason from Black Ops 1. David is in pursuit of Raul Menendez, and believes that Frank Woods, Alex Mason’s partner and friend, can lead him in the right direction. From there Woods tells a story through a series of flash backs detailing events that took place when David was just a child.
