If I were signed into my Xbox Live profile, I would've hit the "bookmark" button after that match. I was proud of how our team dominated, and by bookmarking this match, I would've been able to revisit it in the game's theater mode. There, I could've let the game create a "Highlight Reel" automatically. While I had a great time playing Black Ops 2 multiplayer, it's clear that many of the tweaks made to this year's game are just that--tweaks. The core gameplay has still remained the same, and replacing kill streaks with score streaks isn't really the most profound innovation. (It is still much-appreciated, as it rewards being a team player.) One of the new maps I played "Express" also has a moving train that speeds through it occasionally, introducing an environmental hazard players should be mindful of. It's a nice twist, but also not particularly game-changing. Given Treyarch's long history with the franchise, it should be no surprise that Black Ops 2 multiplayer feels incredibly refined. The changes made to this year's game are all welcome additions, even if they'll do little to sway cynics and lapsed fans. It's more Call of Duty done right, and fans will undoubtedly be sated.
