Call of Duty: Black Ops II Review???

#1MartMayhemPosted 11/11/2012 1:43:17 PM
Anyone find a review on this game yet? I've Google'd for about a half hour with no luck.

I hope this game isn't going to be like AC3.... review comes out on release day and its a bug filled POS.

The reviews ARE going to come out on release day. It's pretty common for games these days

Wait for the user reviews. Those are most reliable.

Not really.


How hard is it to make a new account, post a generalized "review" of a game, and state if it's good or not? You never have to even play the game, just post random good points (if you want to portray it as good) or bad points (if you want to portray it as bad). Points would be "lag", "balance", "boring", etc with little to no examples.

I never trust reviews of any kind unless they give examples and show proof of them, which is why I use YouTube for this, if I ever care for reviews at least.

With cod it's best to just try it out yourself. Do you know how many BF, Halo, etc gamers make bogus reviews for cod? The same goes the other way. You can't trust a lot of user reviews out there.

hahahha. sure thing kid. user reviews are the worst. I've never ever taken any user review seriously since most of them don't know how to write or talk without any bias. At least a critic has more balanced view, not fanboy talking out of his ass.

Agreed. They are the worst. You're right, most of them just ramble on about whatever and don't actually notice the pro's and con's. You have to look at a game as a full package, not just "oh yeah multiplayer is so fun it's 10/10". However, those mainstream reviews are crap too, take Halo 4 for instance, 9.8/10? Lol. Those people get paid a lot of money to lie through their teeth, everyone knows that game is like a 7/10. I agree with you though! Mostly fanboys write reviews and they aren't true, just random bs.

The site I go to sometimes has their review up a day or two before (gamesradar). Their Halo review came out the day before the game was released. Same with AC3, I think.

There are exceptions here and there, but most big name reviewers won't have any up before release.

^ This.


A Good review from a site will usually explain things in detail a bit better, but player reviews always mention the little things that the " Professional " Reviews somehow usually miss.
