GameReactor‘s Norwegian outlet gave it a 7/10 stating that it’s like FIFA. ‘So I’m ready for a new start in the Call of Duty series. It is of course not going to happen, because Call of Duty has been action genre FIFA. It’s like a sports game you buy once a year, and then play it in twelve months.” Ouch! Gamespot gave it an 8/10, criticizing it’s zombie mode as stagnant while praising it’s campaign scripting.
CVG gave it a 7.8/10 praising it’s story stating ‘nobody tells the story of that one war with quite as much flair and panache as Call of Duty.’ Gametrailers gave Black Ops 2 their Editor Choice award awarding a score of 9.4/10, stating ‘Call of Duty: Black Ops II is the most evolved sequel we’ve played in recent memory as it challenges the status quo at almost every turn.’
