2.0 out of 5 stars Make a stand November 4, 2013
By Vaz S
Platform for Display:PC Download| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
IGN: This game blows

Activistion: Look at all the $$$ we make though

IGN: This game is awesome - I'll give a 10

Activision: This makes us seem too arrogant, change to 8.8

IGN: Yes sir

And hence dear reader please find my review/rant

After completing single player and spending considerable time on multiplayer I have reassessed my first review and uninstalled this garbage. People say they will never buy another Call of Duty game again, I can safely say that I will never purchase another Infinity Ward title again. This is the final straw and I make my stand here.

This game represents all that is wrong with PC gaming.

- Obscenely high graphics requirements with the promise of Next Gen graphics which in reality reminds me of Quake 3 graphics (original source code).
- A huge download 30gb +, the answer is why?? These are certainly not used in texture quality, so why so high?
- No Field of View slider, a modification was made however Activision issued a cease and desist. Why penalise the community for trying to improve this diabolical game?
- Dedicated servers? Where are they, 75% host migration fails and the majority of my games end abruptly. Why with such a huge budget does Activision spite PC gamers?
- Same old game play, Infinity Ward has not innovated the sector since the release of the original Modern Warfare. Yes we have more guns, but look at how terrible the guns mechanics are. Currently more people play Counter Strike than Cod on PC, does that say something?

Now I compare with the other shooter Battlefield 4 which is inevitable. There is not a single redeeming feature within COD. Yes we have new maps, new guns and some new perks but this just remains with every new game.

1.0 out of 5 stars An insult to PC gamers November 17, 2013
By R L B
Platform for Display:PC Download|Edition:Standard
This is the worst version of COD to date ... and the bar is not all that high.

The game is badly designed and badly optimised for PC. The PC requirements of 30GB hard drive and 6GB for RAM are absolutely ridiculous. With a GTX Titan it uses all 6GB of vram - why? The graphics are awful and do not justify the size of the hard drive space required or the memory requirements. The game stutters and lags. There is no field of view slider and it is capped at 91fps in multiplayer.

The maps are tedious and uninspired. There are too many new game modes - most of them attracting few players. Yet Search & Destroy, the one game mode which was popular with a solid minority, and which raised the COD games a notch above an arcade game, has mysteriously disappeared.

I am a long time COD player. I have played since COD 1 and have played every version since. I have watched the game degenerate year on year to the point where it is just exploiting its fan base. This is really the last straw for COD. Infinity Ward, if you're reading this, I want my money back!

1.0 out of 5 stars I Regret Purchasing CoD: Ghosts November 9, 2013
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard
At the time of this writing, Call of Duty: Ghosts suffers from horrendous video and Internet lag. Occasionally I will join a game that stutters so bad it is unplayable (1 frame per 1-2 seconds). I often die to enemies that do not appear on my screen. When I view the death cam it shows them walking up on me and shooting me as I stare helplessly at the ground. I also often unload an entire clip into an enemy at point blank only to see my death cam show that I never fired a single shot. To make matters worse there are so few games being played that I have to wait for long periods of time before a match will fill up or settle for a game mode that I don't want to play, but even the most popular game modes appear to have very few games going.

The game play itself rewards lag inducing moves such as sprint-sliding and jumping. The kill streak rewards are over the top including a relatively cheap dog that sprints, senses you through walls, takes more bullets to kill than a player and 1-shots you if you are in melee range.

I can't think of another game that I regret purchasing but I regret purchasing CoD: Ghosts.

Edit: Feb 2, 2014

I wanted to give an update to my personal experience: CoD Ghosts had a rough start where it was largely unplayable due to lag and bugs, but some time (weeks) later it improved and was playable although still feels as if it was never optimized. Very few of the game modes have enough players to start a game so most of my time has been spent playing Team Deathmatch. Most of these online games eventually have hacks and exploits ruin their gameplay. It's gotten pretty bad. I finally gave up and uninstalled.

2.0 out of 5 stars Long time Battlefield fan, first time CoD player November 6, 2013
By Shopper
Platform for Display:PC Download| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
EDIT: I want to amend my review upfront to say that a) the lag compensation is still horrendously bad. Every death seems to feel like the other guy has a half second advantage over you. Good luck capping a flag when there's 5 different vantage points on it, and if you get hit once you're dead with no time to shoot back b) Extinction mode is actually quite fun (not worth $60, however). Very challenging and requires a lot of good teamwork (VOIP especially). I spent 6 hours playing extinction and didn't feel as bored as I did spending 20 minutes playing domination or one of the normal game modes.


I (like many others) spent most of last night playing Ghosts. I have never played a CoD game before (outside of single player), so I consider my perspective to be fresh and not biased based on "franchise fanboy-ism". For the record, I'm a mature gamer who has spent most of my FPS time playing the Battlefield series starting with Bad Company 2 and continuing to Battlefield 4.


My desktop has the ability to max just about every game. Ghosts, when maxed, still looks pretty bad. The graphics might have been considered "good" 10 years ago, but nowadays it's unimpressive. Blades of grass are rigid simple polygons. Everything looks like it has been "oversharpened" or "sparkled" to make it appear more high-def then it really is. The game is also quite poorly optimized. As I said previously, my desktop is extremely powerful, and the game uses just as much resources as Battlefield 4 while still looking half as good. Sound was equally disappointing. There's some music going on and surround sound kinda works (I use a 5.
