Black Ops II Wii U: the preferred console experience? photo
Black Ops II Wii U: the preferred console experience?
by Jim Sterling

After spending the past two days with the Wii U version of Call of Duty: Black Ops II, I have found all my worries about the GamePad's ability to handle fast-paced first-person shooters melt away. In fact, I may now consider the Wii U my go-to console for future FPS games ... when I'm not playing on PC. 

I was worried that the stiff analog sticks of the GamePad would make precision difficult, especially given that Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge felt somewhat unwieldy at times. After my first match, however, I was sold. The GamePad is excellent for first-person shooters, and I am actually finding myself enjoying Black Ops II more than I had before -- and I quite liked it already.
