'Black Ops II' is proof that the series has peaked
When Modern Warfare 3 hit the billion dollar mark in 16 days (beating James Cameron's Avatar by one day), the series may have peaked. With the lack of innovative change; Call of Duty: Black Ops II may be the first of the series to fall in decline.

Because at some point one would realize that wasting $60 on the same game every year was a very stupid decision. Unfortunately common sense may have kicked in after a trip to GameStop.

With so many Call of Duty-clones flooding the First Person Shooter-genre that playing them brings nothing but sheer boredom.

This was expected since gamers have been playing the same Call of Duty for the last three years. Be it an actual Call of Duty game or one of the many FPS games that have heavily copied the gameplay in the laziest way possible.

One could defend Black Ops II with some apologetic pitch on how "innovating" the Strike Force missions are. I'm fully aware that the Strike Force missions allow the player to control the fate of their progression based on the choices they make (just like in a Role Playing Game).

Unfortunately this dose very little to make Black Ops II stand out from its predecessor because its all been done before.

The game begins with Alex Mason and the CIA in a purist of Raul Menendez during the Cold War, circa 1980's. The story will then shift to the future as players will take on the role of David Mason as tries to stop Menendez from triggering a war between America China.

The only problem with the story is that David S. Goyer seemed to have recycled the criticism of the Occupy-movement used in the Dark Knight Rises. Unfortunately Black Ops II 's plot dose not carry the deep thinking sentiment to compare Occupy with Jacobinism.

The only redeeming quality Black Ops II has is the amazing theme song that was composed by Trent Reznor. But why spend $60 on game for a good theme when you could just get the soundtrack from iTune (or pirate it).

So who would actually enjoy Black Ops II? The answer would be anyone who has not played a Call of Duty game or any generic FPS in the last 4 years. Or if your planning to get an Xbox 360 for the first time and want a game that is better than Halo 4.
