Rated 2 out of 10 by Hazardus The death of a franchise
Hardcore COD player since Modern Warefare (COD4). Skipped the other titles other than playing some BO2 with friends. Got this one because it promised to be a lot of things. They failed on nearly every one.
Pros: Graphics (when it's not lagging/stuttering/glitching), Squads Safeguard (for a short while), and Extinction.
Cons: Hackers everywhere, poor gameplay, hard to find servers (listen servers, not true dedicated like promised), no support, maps are restrictive and unimagined, and last but definitely not least, SPAWNS. They're horrible.
This game has led to my decision to never buy another Infinity Ward tainted product again, and I encourage the same of everyone else.
Year after year they lie and fail to deliver on even the most simple of things, and boycotting/them losing millions is the only language they understand.
For anyone wanting to know how to kill a successful franchise, this is it.
Rated 3 out of 10 by DisappointedCoDer Worst CoD yet
First of all, I have purchased every CoD to date, and this one is no different in many ways. The game play is just ok. The weapons are decent and the customization and coin system are better than its predecessors. Squads is pretty cool for training as well. So far, the campaign is nice, but not really fresh at all. Same basic story line, same cut scences, same missions. Basically, same old CoD. Also, it took A LOT of tweaking to get this thing to run even half way ok on a moderately powerful PC.
Now the multi-player downsides. The maps are absolutely awful. It's almost as if the developers TRIED to make the maps overly confusing and disrupt any kind of flow they may have. On a majority of them, Chasm being the worst, you basically just luck into someone. There is no skill, no tactics, just dumb luck most of the time. The spawns are just as idiotic as Black Ops II also. Spawning at the end of an enemy barrel will happen almost every game. You will also have an enemy spawn behind you every time also.
Overall, I'm extremely disappointed in this game. I've given it a chance, but I still have the same initial opinion. Save your money, it's not worth it.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Darktype17 Feels like COD 4?
In response to the...less than educated gentleman who obviously had not played this. It feels like a general improvement indeed, though I have just switched to PC a bit ago after finally getting a decent comp and stopped using the xbox.
Some people say it feels like cod 4!...frankly its been a long while back so I have no idea if they are correct or not, but it does feel a bit vaguely familiar.
If you're into the whole single player story line and think multiplayer is just a bonus you shouldn't be disappointed. I played both Battle field 4 SP and Ghosts and I must say Ghosts had a longer and more interesting story...not to mention the amount of destruction in Ghosts, yeah...ghost's SP more destructive than BF4s? Shocking, but its pretty much true in all general speaking, even if its scripted.
The create a squad member and loadout thing is definitely an improvement, being able to slighty customize your own character model and being able to buy weapons you want after saving up at the max 8-10 points is pretty nice instead of leveling up to try and get them.
Is this better than BF4? Is it the same thing over again? Think of it this way, BF4 is like BF2 Bad company 2, except some more destruction, more vehicles, etc etc...
Rated 1 out of 10 by 88MIKE Horrible game
Do dot buy this game, it seriously is the worst call of duty game. Put it this way, I am still playing black ops 2 and zombies. DO NOT buy DLC if you have this game b/c it will not work, everyone gets "no games found" and they try and trick you by making it so that the only way you can find games is purchase all the DLC and even then you only find 1 game if you are lucky. Worst money I ever spent, dont fall victim like I did.
Rated 1 out of 10 by Dissappointment Not a 10
Not sure how this got a 10 on here. I have recently crossed over from consoles to pc gaming and have played all the other COD games on 360.
I am not sure if IW was just tired of making these and wanted to wreck it so they could make something else? But, that is all I can come up with as to why they would make a game like this. It looks terrible and I am running BF4 Ultra.
Destructible environments? Ummm one gas station pump area in the entire multplayer experience I have had thus far. One structure? Are you serious? Terrible.
I will say that BF4 is only a slight improvement over BF3 and is definitely the better game this year. But, I am thinking this is a start of a downward spiral of these military shooters and someone has to do something original here.
I am sure it will happen and I am hoping it will be Titanfall or Destiny. More than likely Destiny.
But this game? Not "next gen" in any way. DO NOT BUY THIS GAME.
The only "next gen" looking game I own on my PC is Arkham Orgins and I got it for free when I bought a new video card to run BF4.
I actually came here to look at the return policy to see if I could get a refund for Ghosts but unfortunately there isn't one. Perhaps give customers a week or even 2 or 3 days to get a refund on a download?
Game is just awful.
Rated 0 out of 10 by DarkJuggalo Best game ever.
WOW I am for one impressed. Everyone was going crazy for battlefield 3 but let me tell you, Call Of Duty is the king of shooters. The difference is that COD is a war simulator and is very good to play, battlefield is more for nerds who like to sit and camp while in COD u need to move yr butt just like in real war.
All the pro gamers play COD and Ghosts will be the new king of all multiplayer gaming for years to come. The only ppl who hate COD are those who suck at it and like to camp in crapplefield 3 or 4 or whatever. Every battlefield game is the same but each COD offers new experiences with new kill streaks.
I have pre ordered this game and will be kicking butt on launch day.
Rated 2 out of 10 by 0311Blurr Not worth your Time and Money!!!
So when I first started playing the game in SLI I noticed the game started freezing, glitching up, and over all getting right down annoying to play. So I disabled my SLI and went off of one graphics card. By the way I have 3 GT X TITIAN'S. It improved a little. The Campaign was awesome to play as always. However it did have some glitches on its own with frame rate dropping randomly or just freezing up. Then came the multilayer... I have never played a single COD game that was so buggy on it's first release. Ghost was by far the worst. I dealt with sever Lag, glitches, etc.. Not to mention the graphics reminded me of MW2 & 3 with some spoofing up. You would think with all the specs that is required to play the game it would blow your mind. Well it will blow your mind...of disappointment. The specs that they say are required to play this game is a joke. I have a $9,000.00 PC and the game should be running smoothly but its not. It has gotten a little better to play online with the first patch Infinity Ward came out with but you cant make a BAD game that much better. The sound on this game is amazing I will give them that. In fact it's probably too good. You can hear your opponents a mile away. Don't wast your money on this game. There are other games out there that are worth more playing than this.
Rated 0 out of 10 by Betaleader Infinity Ward Makes Another Masterpiece
As with Call of Duty 1, Call of Duty 2, Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2, and Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3, I am certain that Infinity Ward will blow Black Ops 2 out of the water with another brilliant Campaign, an incredible Multiplayer experience, and the new mode that will be replacing the amazing Spec-Ops mode. Bundle this with the power of a next-gen engine, and you have one heck of a competitor to other FPS's coming out such as Battlefield 4 and Halo 5. I truly believe this will be an amazing game and highly recommend preordering this title ASAP as I am going to do.
Rated 1 out of 10 by BigTunafish High Hopes.
So I bought this game thinking that it would be a refreshing new start from the Modern Warfare series by Infinity Ward. Ha, I was wrong. 6 patches and still no improvement. The spawns are horrible, hackers left and right, the lag, and not to mention 40 GB HD space. I can run Battlefield 4 on ultra with out any problems, and this game I have to run everything on low. The worst part is that an average of 5,000 people are on daily. Compared to consoles, that's embarrassing. I advice you guys to save your money, but if your heart is set out into buying it, nothings stopping you.
Rated 0 out of 10 by GammingDaD Are you kidding me?
I can't believe all the noobs who keep getting took by this game.Call of Duty Ghost is nothing new its the same old stuff, and mult. player is boring and the guy who wrote the mult player is better than bf3 or bf4 must be a kid, cuz its not even close, such a wast of money when bf4 is coming out is by far a better game.But on a good note I'm sure cod makers are happy to see that some people no mater what they put out there they will buy.But you can be sure for me and my friends they will not get our money, you guys need to go back to your roots when call of duty was fun,think about it.
