Call of Duty: Ghosts
Looks to be good
I am not the biggest fan of the COD franchise. I was a fan around Modern Warfare and earlier in the series but it just lacked improvements over time and was a reinstall almost every time. This seems different though. From what I can see the campaign is going to be a lot more immersive and in depth. Hopefully the story stays good, it was starting to get old with their old one, but this look new and refreshed. Online looks vastly improved, which is where the money is. Being able to hear where enemies are by the sound of their shot, improved zoom function, peek around corners, better physics, new game modes, and finally some destructible environment and land alteration. I was not going to get this game as a launch title but I will be getting it now. I will be splitting my time between this and Battlefield. Hopefully I will get the experience I got from earlier in the franchise. Thanks for listening to gamers COD and also thanks for the dedicated servers.
Had it for 360, and am now STUCK!
I bought this game on its release day, after playing through the single player content, and messing around with some online/co-op game play, I only play against A.I. bots, not to keen on the PvP Online only deal. At any rate, one major gripe about this game is I ended up getting the first DLC by total accident. I was upset to say the least. Anyway, I had traded my game in by the time I made the mistake. I was thinking of getting it on my Xbox One, then found that DLC bought alone, not through the Season Pass. So, before I went ahead and bought the Xbox One copy, I looked into the DLC question, as in if I bought it for Xbox 360, would I also have it on my Xbox One? The answer is a HUGE NO!!! Seems it only carries over to the X1 if you hold the season pass, which as stated, I do not. Thus I am stuck with the first map pack, of which I never used it, and can't access it on my X1... I don't wish to buy it again for 360, but its a shame that Activision won't let it carry over, its wrong.
Worst Call of Duty Without a doubt.
The Call of duty series is slowly declining to become some of the worst games out there. Ghosts has a relatively boring campaign which is a shame since Call Of Duty usually has some pretty good stories. The gameplay itself is like MW3 with a new coat of paint, and the paint isn't even that good. The game looks like it was a 2011 Xbox 360 and PS3 game which is ridiculous for a next gen game. Even on Xbox 360 the game looks bad. Then you have the multiplayer which is some of the most boring out of any Call of Duty. Finally we have the biggest disappointment, extinction. I personally loved the zombies mode in past Call of Duty games. Extinction however feels like a bad attempt at trying to recreate the zombies mode from Treyarchs games. It feels bland and isn't that fun to play with friends. However the soundtrack isn't too bad as it does sound like it could be for a big budget movie. Personally, I recommend you stay away from this game and wait for Advanced Warfare.
Good game...if 2007
We are now in the later part of 2013, yet Infinity Ward and Call of Duty are still living in the past. The games are only 12 players compared to Battlefields 64 (66 if including both commanders) and the graphics are just awful. Watching the current gen vs next gen, there is no clear difference. For Battlefield, the difference is very apparent. Everything from the spawns, the maps, the gameplay, the character system, and just terrible everything, Call of Duty is a very mediocre game. Oh and just as another friendly tip, Infinity Ward has come out and said that Ghosts engine is just a modified Modern Warfare 2 engine (that was released in 2009, probably developed in 2008). I've played the game for maybe a combined 3 hours and cant even look at the screen without getting bored. So repetitive, and it feels like ive been playing the same game for the past 6 years with some new maps and a few new guns, and guns dont really mean anything, they look the same and sound the same
I think that this game is just alright. I'm a trickshotter, and trickshotting wasn't fun at all in this game. I'm gonna keep it to keep updated in the community, but I don't really recommend it. I mean, let's get real here. It basically takes 2 shots to kill a person with ANY primary gun, and it takes about 2 clips to kill one person with the PDW machine pistol secondary. The maps are ok, but the graphics aren't as good as BO2. You can't have a camo for your secondary, and earning squad points is really irritating, especially since it's not as easy as it was in BO2! If you want a good Call of Duty that doesn't feel to annoying to play, I recommend Call of Duty: Black Ops 2! Most of you already have it, but let's face it, it's an all out better game... The campaign however is amazing in Ghosts. I've never really enjoyed campaigns as a gamer since I just usually get 6 mans online with my friends, but the first mission in Ghosts campaign just hooked me on to play more of that! But this is just my opinion, so no hate! :)
Only as good as the people playing it
I hope that since the Xbox is set at a higher price ,it will deter the little bratty kids from buying it making the gameplay just a little better. Xbox one version will be better than 360 version because of the cloud computing capabilities. The real big thing I hope to see less of is hackers, and say good bye to host migration. Middle of August we'll see some actual multiplayer gameplay. I'm pretty excited to say the least. Keep in mind these are only the first few games for the new consoles so don't bash too bad, especially since they r not here yet.
Not Good At All
This game is complete dookie compared to all other COD games before it and compared to other shooters on the market like Battlefield 4. It was a serious serious step backwards after what I personally consider the best COD Black Ops 2. It's built for campers. It wants you to camp. It begs you to camp. Then it spawns someone directly behind you so they can stab your camping self. The Map design is horrid, it's like they gave a two year old a piece of paper and said hey draw us some lanes, and then they filled it with dookie to make it look war torn. The spawns in this game are horrendous as well, you will kill someone and they will literally spawn directly behind you. The killstreaks are really bad especially compared to previous COD games. In short, if you're thinking of buying this game, just wait until the next one, or go buy Battlefield 4. That game is heads and shoulders above Ghosts.
Worst COD ever...Do not buy
I used to play halo only before black ops 1 came out. Then I was sold to COD, Mw3 was good, and black ops 2 was great but everything about Ghost is horrible, the graphics are not that much better, the maps are huge (all of them), every single game has multiple snipers that will bring you down instantly, the lag is atrocious, ( I have over 28mps internet so I know that is not the problem) you can be shooting someone for ever then they turn around and kill you in a instant. The kill streaks are freakin stupid, along with gun selection. If you like the gameplay of black ops 1, mw3, or black ops 2, I wouldn't waste your money on this game. Can't believe I wasted the money on this, I will be going back to halo. And I should say that every single one of my friends can not stand this game either...
Xbox One and Ghosts! Good Bundle?
With Xbox One to begin with is an amazing step forward for Microsoft. Not only are they bringing a revolutionary game console for 2013, but they are bringing the best multiplayer service (Xbox LIVE) and a brand new reputation system. So that people with a good reputation, that play clean and play to win will be paired up with the same type of people. Personally the new reputation system is a reason I decided to choose Xbox One cause no one wants to be paired up with the wrong people or annoying or irritating people. Therefore Ghosts or any game on Xbox One will be a better game than on any platform ever before. That then goes on to the dedicated servers, I don't know much about them but the word dedicated should stick out very much and give people motivation to buy the game. I have always enjoyed the Call of Duty franchise since Call of Duty: Black Ops. I will continue to enjoy every Call of Duty game as long as they don't start making it like Halo.
Call of Duty: Ghosts
This is a pretty average Call of Duty game all around. Nothing jumps out at you and makes you say "wow, that was awesome!" while playing. I have been a big fan of the CoD franchise since Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, and this is probably the worst game CoD game I have played to date. The worst part about this game is its lack of map variety. Every map is huge, like it is designed for large scale warfare. This forces you to use only guns that will perform well at long ranges such as LMG's, Assault Rifles, and Sniper Rifles. This doesn't sound all bad, but I like to play with a lot of speed when I play CoD, so I like to carry an Assault Rifle or an SMG most of the time. In this game, I am limited to an Assault Rifle because the maps are too enormous to even think about using an SMG. However, the perk system is different and the prestige system is different as well. If the creators scaled back on their map size, this game would receive a much better rating, because it would allow for a lot more combat possibilities. Bigger isn't always better.
