Customer Reviews for Call of Duty: Black Ops II Hardened Edition
Review 1 for 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
Location: NEW JERSEY

Review 3 for Call of Duty: Black Ops II Hardened Edition
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!
Review 4 for Call of Duty: Black Ops II Hardened Edition
Best Game I've Played in a Long Time.
This game is perfect for: hardcore gamers
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.

Review 6 for Call of Duty: Black Ops II Hardened Edition
Location: Harlingen, TX
this is a good deal. just an extra 20 bucks and you get all that other stuff. Honestly, for most of us out there 20 bucks is hardly much. especially if we got a part time job. so why not go the extra mile for a a few extra things for only 20 dollars. what i dont suggest getting, is that care package edition. That dumb thing comes with everything in this bundle but comes with a stupid toy. and the cost for that bundle is another extra 100 dollars. ridiculous.

Do you kno if the box that all the cool stuff comes in is plastic or is it just a card board box bc the care package comes with a plastic box thats will last but still is def a better deal to get the hardened addittion

Nuke Town zombies?
Location: Villa ridge,MO
dude this is sweet im getting this! just for 20$ more you get more that saves you money because then you dont have to buy the map pack when it comes out plus you also get a sweet looking case for your game i know that the care package is cooler because you get the dragonfire drone and a huge care package but im sticking with the Hardened edition

unless your purchase COD elite 2.0 or the season pass for 50 bucks u still have to buy the map packs when they come out
Review 8 for Call of Duty: Black Ops II Hardened Edition
Looks like it's worth it.
I think it's a good buy. Nuketown Zombies will probably be released in a map pack so you will most likely be spending $20 for 1600 microsoft points for it, so you might as well get this for $20 more and get the case,exclusive camo,etc.

Review 10 for Call of Duty: Black Ops II Hardened Edition
Probably my last COD :'(
Location: Birmingham, AL
Call of Duty has sold a wopping nine games in a series. However they just don't have anywhere else to expand really. They took it to the future and you gotta say, we dont wanna buy the same future COD game over and over. This may be the end of COD, so for the sake of it, the Hardened edition sounds completely appropriate to purchase for the last Call of Duty game. Ive begun my road to saving up for the hardened edition and hope to preorder soon! Its been great COD.

More smarter to buy than the Care Package
Location: San Diego
Ok, two months ago I pre-ordered Black Ops II but had no clue about the Hardened Edition and Care Package Edition. The only difference I see between those two are just a Remote Controlled Quadrotor Drone and the actually Care package box. Just adding $100 more dollars is a waste of money, unless your a Call of duty collector or of some sort. and FYI you can UPGRADE if you pre ordered the regular game.

Review 13 for Call of Duty: Black Ops II Hardened Edition
Can't wait for this game. I've already pre-ordered it and just can't wait, and just for $20 more. But does anyone know if we can still make custom emblems on multiplayer?

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.
Review 15 for Call of Duty: Black Ops II Hardened Edition
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!

Review 16 for Call of Duty: Black Ops II Hardened Edition
Location: Long Beach, CA
So this version of the game seems to me like a good deal, it could be priced at $99.99 but it's at a great price of $79.99. It has everything the the Care Package Edition has but the care package and remote control Drone. The main reason I am getting this game though is because of zombies. Loved zombies in WaW, played zombies in Black Ops until my disc broke, and probably going to do the same with this one.

Thats an impressive bill to pay for games no doubt. I thought i would be going overboard getting the hardened edition BO2 since i bought the halo 4 console and headset. you will have to let everyone know which you prefer the triton warheads or the tangos.
