    So I have a macbook pro and can get any copy of the Parallels or Fusion. But I'm just curious as I want to play Black Ops 2 on my mac and what the best route for this would be?

    Windows 7 x64 - my macbook pro retina specs are below

    Processor 2.3 GHz Intel Core i7
    Memory 8 GB 1600 MHz DDR3
    Graphics Intel HD Graphics 4000 512 MB

    with that system, the game will be basically unplayable no matter what VM you use. VMs are always very very slow next to a natively (directly) installed Windows... if you want any chance of playing it with Windows, you'll have to dual boot your machine with Windows (aka "Bootcamp")

    Thats fine I dont mind using Boot Camp...

    With that being said would it work on boot camp even?

    You'll have to do bootcamp. Machine isn't powerful enough for VM. That video card is going to seriously limit your playability though. Maybe running it at 1280x720 with low/medium? Go look at benchmarks for that video card and you'll see it struggles.
