Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 Review

OPS2-LOGO

Call of Duty is one of the most successful video game franchises in the world and every year around Veteran’s Day a new edition is released.  This year was the sequel to Treyarch’s Black Ops simply titled Black Ops 2.  Will Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 deliver? I’ve personally preferred Infinity Ward’s CoD games more than Treyarch however I really enjoyed Black Ops and had high hopes for the sequel.  The first thing that stands out in Black Ops 2 is the futuristic setting which many fans felt was a mistake.  In reality the game is about 70% in the year 2025 and 30% in the 1980’s. The single player campaign has you shifting through time playing various characters including favorites from the first game like Sgt. Woods and Alex Mason.  In the 2025 missions you play as Alex ...

The Medal of Honor series rebooted in 2010 and I really enjoyed the game giving it a high review score.  The direct sequel was released this October titled Medal of Honor: Warfighter.  Will it live up to it’s predecessor? Warfighter’s campaign mode picks up right after the original game as you continue to fight the terrorist’s to prevent them from using the PETN weapon.  You will travel to Bosnia, Somalia, Pakistan and the Philippines. The story features two soldiers as you jump back and forth between their tales.  Stump who is a Recon Marine turned Navy SEAL and Preacher who you will remember from the first game.  The game also features Dusty as he operates from a command center for most of the game. I really wanted to enjoy this game and even pre-ordered it however the campaign was a ... Read More »

SOCOM 4: U.S. Navy SEALs Review

SOCOM 4 Logo

I have been a Sony loyalist for a long time now.  The major attraction that continues to draw me to Sony is the huge selection of Sony exclusive titles.  Somehow over the years I’ve continued to pass on a very successful series titled SOCOM.  A few months back that all changed. I was able to purchase SOCOM 4: US Navy SEALs at a discount price for $10.  I couldn’t pass this opportunity to finally experience a shooter that has a cult like following.  For those that aren’t familiar,  SOCOM 4 is a 3rd person tactical shooter. The single player campaign has you playing as Cullen Gray,  a NATO Ops Commander.  You lead a team of 5 soldiers against a entire army trying to take over a country in Southeast Asia.  At times in the campaign you switch to Forty-Five,  a Female Lieutenant in the ...

Resistance 2 was released in November 2008 and is the direct sequel to one of my favorite and best selling PS3 games.  The game picks up right after Resistance: Fall of Man.  You continue as American Soldier Nathan Hale fighting the alien race known as Chimera. Immediately after your fight in Europe,  Hale is extracted by a Special Research Projects Administration VTOL and brought to Iceland.  After surviving a Chimera attack,  Hale is introduced to a group of Special Forces known as the Sentinals. Sentinals are soldiers who have been affected by the Chimera virus much like Hale and have super natural abilities. As you continue through the story,  Hale gets promoted to Lieutenant and the Chimera invades the United States.  You will battle the Chimera all over the country including California,  Idaho,  Utah and Illinois. You will experience a ... Read More »
