Call of Duty: Black Ops II
If there’s one thing that Black Ops II does right it’s the sound of every bullet that whizzes by your head. It’s not just gunfire that makes this memorable, though, as the drastic difference between future advancements and forty years prior creates a sense of amazement that technology can change so drastically. Hearing the stomps of tens, if not hundreds, of soldiers riding on the backs of horses and then transitioning to a mission where you’re in a futuristic club listening to dark vibes creates a wide variety of unique sound placements. It’s a game with a great sound direction that never seems to get old.
