Black ops 2, can it keep the franchise alive!This is my first post and im not really expecting that many page views but all i want is to voice my opinion on things i have a more than general interest in and by the title you can guess it will be on Xbox. Yes i said Xbox, like there isn't already a gazillion other blogs, posts, videos on the subject but im a fanatic so here i am.
The first main topic of the blog may as well be the release of the latest in the call of duty franchise, Blops 2 or black ops 2, this is a huge release for some and a pitiful attempt at a game which has overstayed it welcome for others. Now im a halo player, yes halo, call of duty's main rival although i have purchased and played every call of duty since big red one and that's going back so i know what to expect. To some Call of duty is a gift from god which must be played 24/7 and to others it's a piece of shit money whoring wanktastical game which has just been repackaged and resold with a new picture and title on the front of the box. I myself am inbetween the two as i think the call of duty franchise has brought out some fantastic games in the past yet i can't help but think that Infinity Ward and Activision are just after more money as they have released a new game every year. I think call of duty needs to step back and put some years into developing a proper game which has a new amazing story and new characters and a touch of Micheal bay explosivness mixed with a very solid multiplayer experience which has properly been rethought and not just added a new feature and called it games changing.
Now the developing company's which create these games have the potential to create a genre changing game, just think back to the days of COD 4 and 5, they where the shit. Everybody loved cod 4 because it introduced games into a new way of playing multiplayer games like customizable classes and perks, it even influenced the ranking system on most shooters from then on. COD 5 gave us nazi zombies an amazing, hectic, survival mode which pited you are three freinds against unending waves of infected nazi zombies and armed you with a huge range of cool weapons to own them with. Those where the days and ever since Modern Warfare 2 i think that call of duty has just gotten worse and worse and they need to really get there shit togather and make a great new set of games to release on the next generation consoles, they need to create something to give halo a run for it's money.
I wish people who will purchase call of duty Black Ops 2 well and hope they enjoy it but i hope it will be the last from Activision for a few years.
