PARMA, Ohio - Northeast Ohio video game stores were busy Monday night getting ready for the midnight release of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2.
At Best Buy in Parma, customers are permitted in the store at 10 p.m., but they cannot leave with a copy of the game until midnight.
"It's a first person shooter game," said Anthony Reaves, Jr., a Best Buy employee.
"It is specifically placed during modern warfare and you play as one of several team members of a black ops team that goes undercover for several missions."
Reaves said he believes the multiplayer experience and the graphics are part of the reason why it's been billed the biggest video game release of the year. He planned to purchase a copy of the $60 game and play all night.
"I don't have to work for the next three days actually," he said, "so I'm perfectly covered for the entire rest of the week."
