"Metacritic has the best and Realest reviewers"

Another hyped "AAA" game, another round of vengeful user reviews from those wishing to put said game in its place. This time, Call of Duty: Black Ops II is ready to receive its punishment. 

As always, gamers have marched on Metacritic to make their voices heard, and once more, we're on hand with JOURNALISM to copy and paste some of these voices because, let's face it, making a public spectacle of angry people is a good idea and beats doing any actual work. 

Currently, BLOPSTOO stands at a score average of 4.0, with 87 positive reviews, 14 middling reviews, and 144 negative ones. The standout reviews have been selected for your viewing pleasure below. Enjoy!

"I know I will not be buying this game because of most of the reviews here are correct and the game franchise is just rinse and repeat and I also believe the critics are being paid off to score decent. I do have one question for those of you who hate the game, why did you buy it??? I see the same scores from the same people that posted reviews for MW3. You knew this was also going to be the same ole thing so why did you buy it?" - Stevesize (2/10)

"Look at my review history. Am I someone who jumps on a bandwagon in any way? Look at my review of mw3, and by the way, BO1 was mt favorite COD. BO2 is a compete waste of my money and it makes me happy mw3 was so poorly recieved. Granted, I've only played it for 1 night. But, the campaign is as most basic as possible, and the multiplayer is so steriotyplical that I amost knew what was going to happen next based on a game I played 5 years ago, and that game is blah blah blah. I let mw3 slide even though I knew it was the same as usual but I can't let this slide because now I have to sell this and accept a $30 dollar loss because I didn't listen to a !,000,000,000,000 other gamers." - Vidsrule (4/10)

"The games keep getting worse and worse. Bad graphics, more meaningless cutscene with more explosions. Just a couple of twist in game play and storyline. Guns feel the same its like am really playing a game for the PS2." - bigbossluna (0/10)

"Shoot. Kill. Die. Respawn. Shoot. Kill. Die. Respawn. Shoot. Kill. Die. Respawn. Shoot. Kill. Die. Respawn. Shoot. Kill. Die. Respawn. Shoot. Kill. Die. Respawn. Shoot. Kill. Die. Respawn. Shoot.

"If you would like to play this game for free I suggest gorging on high fiber food. When you feel the sensation to poop. Go to the toilet. Sit down and push like your aborting a baby. There you go now you have an exact copy of the game without the $60 price tag. GL HF." - bagelybagels (1/10)

"Seriously, the value for money is not good.Only 6 hours of game, graphics engine from 2007. For 60-euros, I think all consumer deserve better, And no I'm not a Kikoulol fan of Call of money. And Yes i already tested the game before making my critics!!" - skylee (1/10)

"This is a overrated product of MEDIA and hollywood like business to farm titles like crap movies, this site is part of that crap, 86 metascore is a shame. The game have mediocre graphics, bad audio and the gameplay is the worst in the genre. Auto aim, auto heal, almost auto everything... is like a TEAM park of a fake warfare, where the **** is the gameplay? Just put a health bar and me…" - kyubix (0/10)

"I'm glad Metacritic has the best and Realest reviewers. I'm not going to buy this garbage since they keep adding little to none improvements and continue to rape us with DL content and Bulls**** passes that werent needed before. You can tell that they paid for fake high score comments and reviewers to get these fake ratings for this game. If you read most of the reviews on here several people's comments were deleted and had to be reposted because they were real reviews. Let's hope that Metacritic doesn't sell out if it hasn't already and get brought out then we'll all be screwed!" - Sirroco (0/10)

"Multiplayer is egual to two last year. Notthing change is a simpe Copy/Paste with some change in menu graphic. Bad work. If you can safe your money for another FPS later." - scorpionm84 (2/10)

"ass. ." - bencam (0/10)

"Do not know why i wasted my money on this franchise again. Graphics are still **** gameplay is the same, campaign is still heavily scripted and very linear and the strike force missions are ALRIGHT at best cannot wait for mw4 -.-" - Keeds (0/10)

I can now play the first 20 measures of Little Trinketry at full speed. It ends when you start playing chords with the right hand. Also something about carts #passdatgas [youtube]http://youtu.be/40fulS_olU8[/youtube]

Why can't we have more Lovecraftian horror games? It's such a great setting, but nobody ever uses it.
