    I've seen some screenshot comparisons and the lighting engine in the port is incredibly shoddy, to the point where it pokes you in the eye.

    That, and compared to the 360 or the PS3 version, the WiiU CoD Blops2 suffers from framerate drops when there's a lot of commotion going on - it's still acceptable, but drops nonetheless. Not really the console's fault, but the game could've been polished a little bit more before its release.

    Visually it's pretty much the same. The frame-rate in the campaign is where it falls short (not that SP matters in a COD game). Multiplayer is fine.

    Man the comments on that site.. hoooolllly shit. They must all be on coke or getting hit in the head with a hammer as they were typing that.

    But let's be honest, the game having drops in framerate isn't really a fault of the console or anything, that's just shotty developing and Treyarch should be ashamed of themselves.

    on the contrary.. this port is on-par to the 360 and only some minor detail for the water itself.. some reflection or some crap.. don't exactly remember.. you aint missing much anyways.. the game is a major let down!

    Maybe the WiiU version, but the game itself, whether on PC/PS3/360 is orgasmic.

    nah it's 100% exactly the same except the wii u has off screen play and you can move the map to and from the gamepad to main screen.. it's just my opinion is different than yours and I'm not trying to negate that someone else loves it.. to each their own.. I just don't enjoy it..

    In the shadows behind you
    I'm a huge Assassins Creed fan and I've got AC3 on the PS3 and I'm still not finished it. I think its the 2nd worst of the series and the last one, AC2.6 (whatever) was the worst.
    I watched that Batman AC AE video and it looks good. (I've got it on ps3 and still playing it but I have finished it on 360)
    COD:BO2 is supposed to be identical to PS3 and 360 versions but missing something? Live streaming? Elite? I dont play it online so I dont know what these features are. I will be getting this game when I get the WiiU maybe tomorrow? Maybe next week? Maybe never. Still not sure if I'll get one yet, havent seen anything that really makes me want to buy it for such a high price.

    I would recommend Batman AC AE out of the 3.

    I did get a Wii U today. I also got COD:BO2 with it.
    I will stick to what I said, Batman AC AE is the better choice.
    COD:BO2 is better on PS3/360 as on Wii-U its laggy and not as smooth. On the little screen it does look really good and plays well, a lot better than any handheld or tablet. Still not better than the other consoles.

    AC3 although visually pretty good is full of bugs.

    Hm, it's hard to compare all of these.
    Among all of these, Black Ops. Black Ops is addicting, has a lot on it that you'll love. Maps are really good too. Things like Zombies, Arcade.....

    With multiplayer and zombies, Black Ops 2 is endless fun. Also CoD games retain their value and can be sold used for a decent profit for years. I imagine we will see Batman and AC on the bargain bin as soon as sequels come out.

    I have Batman and AC3, but my personal choice would be Batman.

    1) Far cooler main character.
    2) Great use of the pad.
    3) Much better pacing, none of this do nothing for hours stuff...
    4) Free DLC.
