Just a review for the single-player mode:
OK, I'm just gonna be real blunt here, and call it like I see it...This game is weak! It's not even CLOSE to a 5-Star Rating.
Let me start by saying that I really like the COD series of games, but, this one just didn't do it for me. This game is pretty weak. They could have made this great.
Great graphics and all, but, that doesn't make a great game...
My first gripe starts with the story line...It just jumps ALL OVER the place! My God, you can't keep track of what the heck is going on....One minute you're in Vietnam, the next minute you're in a Russian prison, the next minute you're fighting Germans, then you're fighting in the present, then you go back to 1963.....Kinda stupid if you ask me.
Second gripe: VERY LITTLE game play...
Now, what game play there is, is very cool & pretty realistic, but, there's just WAY TOO MANY cut-scenes, and movies, and you can't override them, you just have to sit there for eternity until the scenes are done....I could make a steak dinner waiting for these cut-scenes...Cut-scene is done, then you play maybe 5 minutes worth of game, and you're right back into ANOTHER cut-scene! OH JOY!
In my opinion, there's too much "fluff & filler" and not enough game-play. I'd rather watch a movie, than play this game.
Definitely my LEAST favorite one in the entire COD series.
Maybe it's just me, but, this game should have been WAY better than this...
