By users, that is. But all the critic (game magazines and sites) gave it stunning reviews. I guess the professionals know what they're talking about?

Don't even own the game btw, just was wondering about the major discrepancy.
indeed.

Critical review almost never pan a AAA title. Remember when that Gamespot editor gave Kayne and Lynch a bad review and got fired?

Don't just bash on the people. The reviewers are also chicken s*** when it comes to high stakes reviews. They prefer giving good scores to popular games to avoid backlash. Some even say certain reviewers get bribes for certain reviews, but I think that's improbable so won't count that.

I don't think BO2 is terrible, but it certainly isn't worth the reviews I've seen either. It is an "okay" game, and this is coming from someone who has loved CoD.

I actually hadn't heard that. Wouldn't surprise me though.

Remember that time Medal of Honor got a bad review, despite being a AAA title?

Yep this game sucks, that's why it's currently the most played game on XBOX Live.

Kids just hate on it because it's popular that's all.

Hipster kids aside, BO2 is a lot of fun...
