5 Reasons Black Ops II Is Best On Wii U

Posted on Thursday, October 18 @ 11:30:00 Eastern by

Treyarch's History With Nintendo

At times, Treyarch has been considered the "second-string" Call of Duty developer, but I think Black Ops II is set to change that in the aftermath of Infinity Ward's implosion. Why? Treyarch has the experience.

All those years they've churned out Wii ports of top-selling Activision products will pay off as the Wii U lifts the Mario faithful up to meet other HD consoles. Treyarch has proven themselves efficient students of new console architecture and the Wii U version will directly benefit from that experience. I don't think any other game launching with a Nintendo console, aside from Super Mario 64, has the same pull Black Ops II will have when it sits on store shelves next to the Wii U on November 18.


The Complete Experience

Nintendo fanboys have been wrestling with the harsh realities for years now. We've all heard it before. It's the waggle version. It's the kiddy version. It's the blurry version.

No more. Black Ops II on Wii U represents the complete experience. Playing on Nintendo's new console nets you all the HD graphics and online multiplayer, but with the addition of a wide variety of control methods. You can use the Wii Remote and Nunchuk (as Call of Duty has in the past on Wii) or you can go with the new GamePad. You can use the touchscreen for your map and some convient input, or you can pick up one of the Wii U Pro controllers to match the experience on Xbox 360 or PS3.
