Black Ops 2 Zombies on a GamePad impresses

As we told you in an article earlier, Black Ops 2 on the Wii U looks really nice. Visuals are definitely on par if not better than the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions and that also includes Black Ops 2 zombies as well, which is fully playable on the Wii U without any cut content that we saw so much with zombies on the first Black Ops game. We still remember the flamethrower incident Treyarch.

If Black Ops 2 was one of your launch games along with your Wii U purchase, then you are probably getting your teeth stuck into zombies right now, and loving the fact that zombies looks and feels exactly the same way as Black Ops 2 on the Xbox 360 and PS3. What isn’t included on the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions though are alternative ways to play the game – or the ability to play Black Ops 2 zombies on a GamePad!

Yeah, that’s right. If you decide that you want a break from killing the undead on a big screen, you’ll be pleased to hear that Treyarch has added support for Black Ops 2 zombies to be supported on the GamePad if you prefer. You’ll obviously have to make do with a different control scheme than what you are probably used to on PS3 or Xbox 360, but you’ll be loving it once you have mastered the GamePad controls.

We have one video to show you now, giving you an exact idea how Black Ops 2 zombies looks on the GamePad. As you can see, there is no apparent slow down from transferring gameplay to the GamePad, with sound quality especially looking good when directly outputting from the GamePad speakers.

There’s no sign of any lag either which is pleasing to see, although bear in mind that this is a private match seen below, with GamePad lag so far inconclusive when playing an online match with other teammates via the Nintendo Network. Did you know that zombies was playable on the GamePad, and if not are you now interested in picking a Wii U up to enjoy unique features like this?

This looks like the first instance of many where the GamePad will offer a unique experience not available on PS3 and Xbox 360 – an advantage that will surely work in Nintendo’s favor.
