Call of Duty: Black Ops II Hardened Edition
The Hardened Edition is so worth your money! Considering all you get, it's a bargain for $80. Plus, the game is awesome as well. Campaign looks good, multiplayer looks to be pushing the franchise forward, and zombies...well....Treyarch haven't too much yet, so we'll have to wait and see. If you're wondering whether or not to get Hardened or the Care Package, I put a little infographic as well as a trailer at the bottom of this. November 13th can't come soon enough!
i cant wait for this
i cant wait for this game i pay for the harden edition and you see how you do in zombie mode in elite and play with other team vs mode like 4 team death and get perk for score i love all of call of duty games
I'm actually quite excited for this game. I'm happy that they put in score streaks, so that you don't just have to rely on killing people to get something. Basically everything you get points for helps you get your score streaks. This is good for players like me, who are decent and not a killing machine. I'm more team oriented and help with a lot of defending in domination or capture the flag.
I'm also liking the new pick 10 system they have with create a class, you can have no secondary and use those for something else, like more perks or another attachment.
I'm happy that they changed up the perks so that they only improve your character, not your gun. All the gun improvements are now attachments, such as slight of hand. The score streaks are great, not too little or not too many. The UAV helps you get points when your teammate gets a kill while your plane is up.
Can't wait to attend the midnight release! MW3 midnight release was fun - but cold!
Finally!!! And Read If You're Not Sure
This is easily going to be the best Call of Duty since Call of Duty 4. So much customization and the Hardened Edition actually comes with cool stuff. I can't wait for this game, not just for the multiplayer, but for the campaign and the zombies as well. If you're one of those people who say, "I'm not getting this because I didn't like Black Ops 1" then go watch some videos on YouTube. This game is going to play as smoothly as Modern Warfare. That was the main problem with Black Ops 1, they hard a hard time keeping graphics good while also keeping the FPS (Frames Per Second) at a decent number. The graphics in this game will match Battlefield, almost, but still be easier to play for new comers and veterans. Also, camping in this game is all but eradicated. Ghost only keeps you invisible to enemy radar as long as you're moving. Please get this game and try it out. I assure you, you will not be disappointed.
Best Game I've Played in a Long Time.
This is the best game I've played sence Saints Row the Third. I've enjoyed playing this game for the past few weeks and i've enjoyed the epic campaign. I consider the campaign the best campaign ever. The story was awesome and you could also change the ending based on your desitions. The multiplayer has a lot of glitches that Treyarch is working on patching, but besides that i enjoy playing multiplayer everyday. Zombies has improved gameplay wise but not map size wise. The zombie maps are too small. The only way to get a big zombie map is Tranzit mode. Nuketown zombies is personally my favorite zombie map in this game. I love how they made the map take place durring the moon easter egg from Black Ops. Hardend eddition was worth buying with all the extras. I would definitly buy this game if i were you, and I am keeping this game for a long time.
Please PLEASE do not buy Hardened Edition!!!
This review is specifically toward the Hadened Edition...
This game delivers for gamers who love the franchise. But please, please, please, do NOT spend the extra money for Hardened Edition. You are basically paying for a metal box and two worthless coins. After a weekend launch event where they mistakenly gave the Nuketown 2025 map to everyone (not just those who paid extra for it), Treyarch has removed the Nuketown 2025 map from X-box Live.
On the 1% chance you're not familiar with the Black Ops series, this map developed a cult following in the original and, to me, the key differentiator for Hardened Edition was that you gained access to an updated multiplayer version of the map. After a record-setting weekend, Treyarch has taken this map away, promising only that it will return for special events (probably after you pay them more $$$!).
The game itself is a fine addition to the franchise, but honestly... buy the basic game and go spend the extra $20 on a toy for needy children... or donate it to the Red Cross... or ANY charity you think is worthwhile. You'll feel A LOT better about where that money went than I do for purchasing the Hardened Edition of Black Ops II.
Is the Hardened Better than the Care Package?
I think the hardened is a great deal becaus eof the fact that you get to have amazing DLC upgrades which includes a new camo for guns and you also get a Nuketown Zombie map! Also you get a cool steel case for the disc itself. But the difference between the two is that you pay 100 dollars mor for a care package crate and an rc replica of the dragonfire. It's practically the same thing but you get a case and an rc helecopter. In my opinion I think that both are awsome but in reality the better buy would be the Hardened Edition. Now that's my opinion. If you think about it you would be paying an extra 100 dollars for an rc helecopter and a big plastic case with is pretty cool but what would do with it after you recieve the package?
BO2 awesome!! no more confusion
I've played all these games for years. It finally looks like they are trying to get all the problems solved. Game looks and plays sweet!!! I had to go to Game stop to get some answers tho. #1 No edition you buy comes with the "elite" DLC and stuff, you have to buy it separately and you HAVE to go into a Game stop to get it. Thus why you cant find "Elite" online. Sweet thing is if your on a budget, you can make payments for Elite unlike MW3 where you had to pay all at once. So if your serious about this go put down some "extra" cash on BO2 Elite and I will see ya on 11/13, hope you don't see me first LOL
ill start off by saying i really started playing games 11 years ago. first game HALO first system XBOX. I love halo think it's one of the best fps out there. But i also like the treyarch series, i personally like them better the MW seires it just more to do with the game to me at least. i'm a huge zombies fan so i cant wait for the 4v4 matches and the campaign. I'm getting the hardened edition so im hoping more stuff will be coming with that and of cousre im buying the limited edition halo 4 plus the halo xbox. i'm a fan i gots the money and i know its gonna be fun.
Cant wait and its a good price
All this extra stuff for only 20 bucks. Zombies are gonna be amazing with all the new stuff they are adding. Bo2 is gonna make you run around unlike mw3 where there is someone in a corner waiting for you. And if they still decide to sit in the corner we will be able to you with a special type of sight (but wait theres more) my favorite feature personally is the ability to have a super strong solider by taking away your stuff and using it on perks or attachments for guns. New game types like squad deathmatch i mean how could you not want this. Bo2 is gonna crazy!
