Call of Duty: Black Ops II (Care Package) Description
Reviews By Wolfgang F. Kandek : Date November 13, 2012
Okay the box is amazing it is hard nice plastic with cool designs on it, although it is not to scale of a real care package it resembles the size of a small toy chest. Opening it everything is nicely packaged. There are two cardboards boxes with nice designs, then on the inside they hold the controller and the Quadcopter which is a huge let down. The medals are metal and are nice with cool artistic designs on them and they have a code on them to redeem the nuketown map. To the left of it is the game case. It is a standard PS3 case but plated with metal over it with cool design of a guy holding a gun on the front and on the back a girl with flames behind her. Inside is the disk and a bunch of papers to redeem more things like the soundtrack. Now onto the Quadcopter the worst thing ever. I am an experienced Quadcopter flyer I have a real one and have flown for years. When I turned this on it worked fine expect you CANNOT turn the copter around!! you can lift it high into the air sway it left and right but you can not do a 360, a bunch of crap so you can fly straight back left and right. On a real Quadcopter and helicopter you can turn it around so you can fly behind you not the case. You can still fly around everywhere but if you want to turn back around you have to back the Quadcopter up instead of turning around and facing the direction. It is like if you had a car and you wanted to go to the opposite side of the lane you have to go forward move your car to the left/right and then drive backwards! Terrible design and the control is terrible, cheap plastic and the stick that controls the helicopters movements gets stuck on the edge of the plastic a lot making it hard to maneuver. The only thing it is good for now is sitting on my stand looking pretty. Also the small little gun you see attached to it does not stay on when you fly it is only stuck onto the display so when you lay the copter on top of it it looks like it is part of the Quadcopter, but it is not. Do not waste $100 extra just for the Quadcopter and the case, but get the hardened edition instead only $80. It is only $20 more than the original and has everything except the nice care package and the terrible Quadcopter. Hope this helps.

**THIS IS NOT A REVIEW OF THE GAME, BUT RATHER OF THE CARE PACKAGE AND THE CONTENTS.**
I will review the game itself later.
While the game could be better, the Care Package really does look really nice.
So, what do you get with this?
-Care Package box
-MQ-27 Dragonfire (Quadrotor) RC with Controller (obviously), batteries, manuals, stand, and “repair stickers”
-Soundtrack (Digital Copy)
-PS3 Dynamic Theme (Turbine from Multiplayer)
-PS3 Dynamic Theme (Zombies’ TranZit)
-Nuketown 2025 playercard background
-Nuketown Zombies playercard background
-2 exclusive “Challenge Coins” used to unlock “exclusive content”
The Care Package box itself is really big, and contains 2 big boxes and one cardboard display showcasing the Coins and Steelbook. The box is made of a thick plastic, which makes it pretty durable. I use mine to store my Call of Duty collectibles.
The Quadrotor is made of styrofoam, which makes it really light, and possibly very weak in terms of strength. You can fly it up, down, left, or right, but you cannot turn it in mid-air. Meaning, you cannot rotate it 90 degrees while in flight. You can charge it from the controller or use the small USB cable that comes with it to charge it using your computer. It may take about 30 minutes, depending on the battery level. Yes, batteries are supplied this time, unlike in Black Ops 1′s Prestige Edition. For some reason, I was only given 3 batteries, when the controller needs 6.

Came well packaged and contained all items listed in the care package box, the quality of the box is really nice and look forward to using the box for storing gaming equipment in and transporting to friends places.
The quad-copter was undamaged and all parts were intact worked straight out of the box. Only let down with the quad-copter was the controller which was slightly wierd as a previous reviewer has mentioned you can only go forward backward left and right and only one at a time due to the plastic stoppers which I recently removed to have greater control during flight.
I’m in Australia and was concerned purchasing a US version of the game to use with my AU playstation and AU account, the game works fine but for me to use the DLC codes or get the season pass I needed to create a US playstation account to redeem and download the content for my disc. Once downloaded I can easily switch back to my main account and still use the DLC content so no major let downs just a minor problem.
