*If you don’t want me to spoil Black Ops 2, don’t read!!!*
When I was about 10 years old I heard about Treyarch’s game; Call of Duty Black Ops, & I was fascinated by it. When I was 12 going on 13, my sister’s boyfriend moved in & I finally got to play. Then I got Black Ops 2 when it came out. I started off not enjoying it. I was terrible at it & some people on there were really mean because of it. I started off with multiplayer.
Multiplayer consists of twelve or fewer players. There are two teams & they’re against each other. The beginning maps on multiplayer are Aftermath, Cargo, Carrier, Drone, Express, Hijacked, Meltdown, Overflow, Plaza, Raid, Slums, Standoff, Turbine, Yemen, & Nuke town 2025. These are all new maps that are larger & more complex than the ones on Black Ops 1. Nuke town 2025 is a map of the future. The original map is on Black Ops 1. You & your team members run around the map & annihilate the opponents with your selection of weapon.
That isn’t the only thing that multiplayer has, though. It has categories. Like Team Death match, Search & Destroy, Domination, Capture the Flag, One in the Chamber, etc. These have different duties. Like in Search & Destroy you have to get the bomb, plant it & kill the opponents before they kill you. One in the Chamber is where you play against 5 people & you have 3 lives & 1 bullet. Each map has its own topic. Like Nuke town 2025 is a neighborhood in Vegas.
Along with multiplayer, I also play zombies. It’s where you & 3 other players fight zombies till you all die. There’s a mystery box with multiple weapons. You can also buy cheaper, less affecting weapons off of the wall. If the zombie smacks you a certain amount of times, you drop & a teammate only has a certain measure of time to recover you. Or else you die & have to wait till the next round to recover, with no weapons.
On the map Tranzit, it’s a combination of less complex maps called Town, Farm & Diner. You can take a bus to get to each destination. The characters in this map are Misty, Samuel, Marlton, & Russman. This is an enhancement from Black Ops 1 because in Black Ops 1 there’s not a woman character. You can also play Town, Farm & Diner by themselves.
On the map Die Rise, you’re on a group of skyscrapers. These characters are also Misty, Samuel, Marlton, & Russman. You can get a trample steam which is basically a trampoline. In addition to this map, it also comes with 4 maps on multiplayer. These maps are Hydro, Grind, Downhill, & Mirage. This map pack also comes with an additional small zombie map called turn. It’s at the diner & it’s where you play the zombie & try to eliminate the humans.
On the map Mob of the Dead, which aroused my title, you’re at an old prison on Alcatraz Island. It was aroused by the actual prison that was there. The people that were imprisoned there were either psycho or “mobsters”. So the characters on the map are gangsters, or, mobsters. Hence: “Mob of the Dead”. The character’s names are Weasel, Sal, Billy & Finn which are the names of mobsters who were at the actual prison. This map pack also comes with 4 multiplayer maps which are Studio, Magma, Vertigo & Encore.
You can get perks on all of these zombie maps. Some maps have ones that others don’t. The perks are Juggernog, Stamin Up, Tombstone Soda, Speed Cola, Quick Revive, Who’s Who, Electric Cherry, Double Tap, Mule Kick, & Dead shot Daiquiri. Juggernog allows you to get hit more than usual by a zombie & you won’t go down so quickly. Stamin Up allows you to run faster & switch your weapons faster. Tombstone Soda works when you go down. You die automatically. When you respawn, you walk over your tombstone that you dropped & you get back all of your perks & weapons. Speed Cola helps you to reload your weapons faster. Quick Revive allows you to revive your downed teammates twice as fast. Who’s Who allows you to revive yourself after you go down. Electric Cherry shoots out electricity when you’re reloading. Double Tap puts double the affect on your bullets. Mule Kick allows you to get an extra weapon. Dead shot Daiquiri aims all of your bullets at the zombies head so they die faster.
In Black Ops 2, there’s also a campaign. This is basically preparation for multiplayer. You go through certain assignments. You’re playing as one player the whole time, & his name is Mason. After each completed operation, Mason will get captured, & of course, you have to get him out of it & save someone else. If you don’t complete the mission & you die, you have to restart the mission. This basically gets you prepared for multiplayer.
The idea of this game is basically to kill & have pleasurable entertainment. You can meet new people & honestly learn new things. Despite the rude people you meet, you also meet nice people & become close with them. I think this game is tremendously fun & I recommend it for kids over the age of 11. I give it 4 ½ out of 5 tomahawks. If you play this game, I guarantee you won’t be disappointed!
