Call of Duty: Ghosts Hardened Edition
Overall, a great game at a GREAT price!
This is by far my favorite Call of Duty title. Ghosts brings many new gameplay features to the table, and best of all, the BEST COD campaign yet! The story in this COD installment is much more fast paced and interesting than those told in previous games. It is also much more fun and exciting, because there is more action, and more guns, around every corner. The multiplayer is also a huge success in my opinion. The ONLY con about the multiplayer is the AWFUL spawn points, along with the way that challenges are done. You can and WILL literally spawn directly in front of and behind enemy players. Instead of having access to all challenges, players must choose five "operations" from a list of about one hundred different completely random operations. While this is a HUGE nuisance, it can be overlooked due to the many great new features that Ghosts brings to both Next-Gen and Current Gen consoles. The new sliding ability makes your character look cool, and makes you feel like a total badass. The character customization is absolutely awesome--there is a lot of headgear to choose from, along with tons of different uniforms, masks, character faces and camos, and player patches and emblems to choose from. There are ten prestiges and 60 levels, and each character levels separately, while also unlocking gear and weapons separately. Players unlock "Squad Points" that can be used to purchase weapons, equipment, and attachments, as opposed to unlocking them via challenges or upon "leveling up" a weapon. While these things are unlocked separately from character to character, "operation" (challenge) progress remains the same no matter what character the player is choosing to play as. There is also a wide variety of guns to choose from, including a brand new weapon class: marksman rifles. Most guns look sleek and some just plain badass, while others look like they were found in the children's toy section at dollar general. Ghosts also features a new game mode: extinction. I know what most of you are thinking: "Is this game mode anything like zombies?" The answer is: No, extinction is in no way similar to the zombies mode featured in the past three COD titles produced by Treyarch. It is an objective based survival type game mode with more unlockables, perks, and upgrades available then there were in zombies. While it is easier to play, it can also get boring after a few hours. So far, the first few objectives are the same, as are the enemies, and there are few weapons to choose from, along with the fact that the player cannot swap out their default starting handgun for a new weapon at any point in the game. The Hardened Edition features a copy of COD: Ghosts (packaged inside a sleek and shiny Steelbook Collector's case, which in my opinion looks SO sweet), a Ghosts paracord strap, which is really just a sturdier type of wristband, a Season Pass, which comes with a good bit of Day One exclusives, a code used to download a (digital) copy of the game soundtrack, and a code good for the download of an exclusive player patch, card, and background, along with the free fall bonus map, which, if you did not know already, was NOT a pre-order exclusive. Those of you who pre-ordered in hopes of receiving a truly exclusive map, I am sorry, you have been lied to. But what makes the Hardened Edition even sweeter is the super sexy box that it all comes in. This isn't just a regular cardboard box--it's a sturdy case-type box--the kind one would use to keep something very valuable in. The Cover Art it features is absolutely stunning, and the glossy feel and look makes it feel even more valuable. All in all, COD: Ghosts is not only the best COD game yet, it's also a great game in general. If you are into not just COD, but just FPS games in general, then I would highly recommend picking up a copy of Ghosts sometime soon. The Hardened Edition is PERFECT for any hardcore OR casual COD fan with an extra sixty bucks on their hands. And if you're planning on buying a new copy of the game and then getting a Season Pass later, don't miss out on a bunch of awesome extras just to save $10. You can trust me when I say that Ghosts is a GREAT game, and the Hardened edition is TOTALLY worth the money.
Call of Duty need i say more
I used to mock people that got more then just the game But I must say the Hardened Editon is pretty cool .The box set is done nicely and I would have gotten the season pass anyways so the price is fine . Plus You get some extras . Now for the game . Haven't played to much yet but I really like it so far . The campain is off to good start and multi player I like the new perk system . Its COD if you been lovin it for years youll love this one . Only bad thing I can say and its small in multi player in some places the graphics seem not as sharp as black ops2
Finally looks hopeful
After being disappointed by the Call of Duty series since Black Ops came into the mix, this game finally looks like it might actually be awesome. Hopefully the maps are going to be lager like they used to be and evolving maps sound like a pretty cool edition. I've been pushed to the Battlefield series since then and now it might actually be able to stand up against Battlefield 4.
Ghost shows promising gameplay
Modern Warfare was one of the best Call of Duty's to this date but Ghost looks like it has the potential to be the best Call of Duty game that has been put out on shelves. I am actually excited and eager for the release of this game and can't wait any longer until this game comes out.
High Hopes, but the last chance
First off, I am a big fan of the Call of Duty series, however; the last two games, made me start to hate it. MW3 was not great, but not as bad the atrocity that was Black Ops II. Black Ops II made me lose almost all faith in this series, connection and hit detection were awful, quickscopers and 12 year olds polluted the game, not to mention the target finder. CoD Ghosts though, looks quite good, from the supposed lack of aim assist on Sniper Rifles, to the return to large maps, and a whole new flow of movement. As well as the fact that I've always had more faith in IW as developers. This game may bring me back to the series, after drifting towards Battlefield and other shooters, but honestly, if the game doesn't live up to my expectations, I will not buy the next game.
(Note that I have pre-ordered the Hardened Edition, because chances are, even if it's bad, I will end up getting most DLCs, and playing it a fair amount, as I did with Black Ops II)
Hey, guys. definitely got the game, just wondering: Do I still get the Black Ops 2 Ghosts camo? Kind of worried that it doesn't say anything about it, but I haven't heard that you can't get it now.
Understand the pricing
I thought that this was a major rip off since the hardened edition of BO2 was $80 but after reading i saw that they included a season pass which actually makes it totaly worth it, good deal
im getting this game i think its worth the money you get the game and season pass and other stuff to
Definitely the best Call of Duty game in a while.
I am a diehard COD fan. Although I feel there hasn't been a truly amazing game since MW2. BO2 and MW3 were great if you were a YouTuber, or a troll. I feel this is going to bring us out of the shadows. this will be the game that ends this horrible streak. It has to be good, everything it's doing is a massive new step for Call of Duty. With Spec ops AND extinction, even if the multiplayer fails it still has something to fall back on. I know all the haters say all COD is the same. (Nothing could be more false) Ghosts rise from the dead. So will Call of Duty
Can't Wait for the next Call of Duty!
I'm so pumped that I was able to pre-order the hardened edition, usually the gamestops near me are sold out of it. It's cool how they put the season pass in the hardened edition but honestly, dont buy the collecters edition, you pay so much more money just for a camera, it isnt worth it. But this it is ONLY IF you play call of duty on a regular basis. If the regular game is 60 and the season pass is 50, thats 110$. With all the stuff you get in game aswell as the DLCs, It sure is worth it.
