Hey COD fans! I have a question for all of you! I just bought a Wii U pro controller and I want to get into COD but I have one dilemma. Should I buy COD Black Ops 2 or COD Ghosts? Which is generally considered better and why and why do you recommend it?

Black Ops 2 got better reviews than Ghosts. It's your decision.

Black Ops 2! Ghosts was a huge disappointment after all the fun I had on BO2. Ghosts is a mess of new ideas, most of which fail miserably. Plus I love using shotguns which suck horribly in Ghosts.

I have both and liked Ghosts more. Those are also the only 2 I ever owned. It's up to you. I know that Black Ops II is cheaper, so maybe that matters...

I liked Ghosts a lot more too, but you're looking at an incredibly small sample size.

Go read some user reviews and that'll give you a better idea of which you'll like best.

I don't play COD, but I'd say get the newest one, as it likely has more players online, which is why you want this, as only insane folks play these games for single player.

Lots of censorship here...

I think that Ghosts' graphics are better and there's alot more options in the multiplayer. Black Ops II uses the GamePad alot better, as far as I'm aware. Ghosts didn't even do anything with the GamePad, unless I'm missing something in the options or something...

Well I've sure been outnumbered in this debate. I still don't understand what's so great about ghosts. The graphics are pretty meh especially on Xbox 360 where it runs at a native 720p (WHY???) You die too fast and the maps are too big. I'm really just nitpicking here, aren't I?

Actually, Ghosts on Xbox 360 runs at sub-HD. Just the horizontal pixels don't show full 720p, or something. Since Wii U's version of the game derives from the Xbox 360, CoD Ghosts on Wii U is sub-HD, too.

I'm pretty sure you die fast in any CoD game. I literally spawned where a bullet was, once.

Well, I very much enjoyed Call of Duty Black Ops 2 on Wii U- it was an all around good campaign and the lobbies are still active last I checked (about a month ago). I haven't finished Ghosts, but it's a great game too. They're both good. Ghosts is definitely superior in the graphics department, I will say that. In fact, comparison videos among PS4, Wii U, PS3 and 360 have created a general consensus that the best looking version is PS4, but Wii U is surprisingly not far behind in 2nd, followed by PS3, then 360.

I was actually pretty amused at how great Ghosts looked the first time I popped it in. My first thoughts were that the game definitely looks better than 7th gen, and remarkably close to PS4 thanks to some well-done textures. As for how GOOD the game is, well, again I haven't finished it, but from what I've played so far I've liked it just as much as Black Ops 2. If you can afford it, I'd say go with Ghosts just because it's the better looking version and more recent entry, and likely to have a more vibrant online community in the months to come. But, for a bargain price BO2 is also a steal, so it's really up to you.

I only play zombies local co-op but i prefered Black Ops 2 to ghosts as extinction didn't really match up imo.

Call of Duty is horrible now, but if you REALLY want to get one, get Black Ops 2. Both are terrible on the Wii U though. I love the Wii U, but do yourself a favor and get it on PS3/PC/Xbox 360 if possible. The multiplier experience is terrible on Wii U from what I've heard, and there are so many facts that support it.

I agree that the zombie mode is somewhat better, but extinction is mostly equal. Extinction is basically like horde mode on Gears of War.

@PloXyZeRO
When it comes to player count, basically. Game wise, it's the same, obviously. I haven't been online in a good while, because only like 60 people were playing hardcore TDM in Ghosts. There were 600 in regular modes.

I mean Treyarch doesn't treat the Wii U players like they treat the other players. No DLC, they don't really attempt to fix the problems that Wii U users have as opposed to Xbox/PS users, etc.

Just my opinion though. To each his own!

Oh ok. Ya, definitely. They actually did less with the GamePad for Ghosts than Black Ops II, as far as I can tell

I think Ghosts is a better gsme, but they still went backwards with some stuff.

I'd say Ghosts for the single-player, more active community and slightly better graphics, and they don't really change that much even with different developers (IW vs Treyarch) so if you don't like one, chances are you won't like the other.
