But are you going to be running aroundIn all honesty, Black Ops 2 is not a bad game. The graphics aren't really all that they could be. But are you going to be running around seeing of you can see the details of a rock, or are you going to be shooting people? I am not defending the choice to keep using the same game engine with minor tweaks each year, but graphics are not what makes a game good or bad. The campaign is a decent length. They tried to make a story that is interesting and I believe they succeeded. With that being said, it is still similar to past Call of Duty's. Escort this guy, snipe this guy, get to the helicopter, all just to get the set piece that every mission has. Zombies is a bit of a hit and miss. I really like what they did with the new game mode Tranzit. What that is, is a very large map where you get from area to area via a bus. You can build these little machines and things out of parts that you find. And the neat part is that the areas you go to are the survival maps. But just playing the survival maps by themselves are not very good. No Pack-A-Punch, and very limited space. These maps are small. The majority bought this game for multiplayer. And, just like Zombies, is a hit and miss. The guns are decently varied, although they really seemed to guve everything a pretty high fire rate. The maps are small, which makes them ideal for submachine guns and shotguns. The new gamemode Hardpoint is basically a King of the Hill type mode. The Pick Ten system that replaces the old Create A Class is definately an improvement. Want two primaries? You can do that. Want to run with nothing but a combat knife and a lot of perks? You can do that.
So there's quite a bit of good and quite a bit of bad. If you haven't played Call of Duty in a few years, you might want to pick this up. If you have played every Call of Duty before this, I would suggest waiting until you can get it for $30-$40.… Expand

First of all, this is coming from someone who does not watch football or play the games. The last football game I played was NFL Blitz on the N64. So with that out of the way, this game is pretty good. I really can't comment on the rosters or if they got the players looking like they should. However, I can say that the graphics are really good. The stadiums look pretty good and everything has a good amount of detail. And the 3D grass is a nice touch. On to the gameplay. The controls took me a while to get used to but once I got the hang of things, I had fun. There is also a good amount of game modes. You can make a player and take through his pro years, manage a team in Franchise Mode, or if you prefer cards, you have the Ultimate Team mode. On the negative side, the commentary seems to repeat quite a bit. And the load times are pretty bad. Total, it took me about 2-3 minutes to just get past the Press Start Screen. Lastly, the achievements. None of them are too challenging. If you change most of the settings, you could get most of them in a single 15 minute quarter game. Overall, I do not regret spending the $9.99.… Expand

The graphics aren't reallyThis is my first baseball game, so this is coming from someone who doesn't really follow the games or the sport. The graphics aren't really terrible, but they aren't fantastic. There is an obvious gap between what this game looks like, and maybe say, Uncharted: Golden Abyss. I had few issues with the frame rate, and haven't had any other graphical problems. The gameplay is, for the most part, very solid. With multiple ways to bat and pitch, you should find no problem getting the controls down. On its easiest setting, the game is as you would expect, easy. But put the difficulty up all the way, and you got yourself a challenging game.I can't really make a judgment about the teams or rosters because I only know the players from a few teams (Detroit Tigers!). There are many modes of play here. Ranging from basic exhibition to creating a player and rising through the ranks, or choosing teams and managing them without having to actually play in a single game. Overall, this game has a few minor problems but not any the absolutely hinder gameplay. If you have $40 and are looking for a good Vita game, this will not disappoint.… Expand
