2.0 out of 5 stars New Guns, same old matchmaking problems, December 19, 2013
This review is from: Call of Duty: Ghosts Prestige Edition - Xbox 360 (Video Game)
The developers did a great job with the new prestige system, the new maps, the new guns and I really enjoy customizing the look of my character as I unlock different armor through the operations system; but the matchmaking still has the same old problems and some new ones. It feels like the person selected to host the match gets punished (the only evidence I have is that when I was really lagging behind other players and couldn't buy a kill, I quit out and saw "locating new host" before I was completely out). Watching someone glide into your sights, but not being able to fire until after they've already killed you is very aggravating. Another note, don't play by yourself. You will be placed into a game that has already started, on the team that is behind by half of the total score, and pinned down by the enemy who has taken over the map. It is like receiving an automatic loss because there is no way to come back from that far behind. Your team has room for additional players because of other players who have already quit out of that awful game. Spawns on most maps are still bad. Spawning next to a teammate who is already getting shot at should not be considered a safe place to spawn, nor should across the map from your team where your opponent is ready and waiting. When playing with my team, this gets a little bit better if we try to stay together, and we usually do very well. Even so, there are some matches where we feel like we are a good half second behind and the game doesn't try to find a better host until we have all died multiple times. Anyone who has played any first person shooters knows that if there is any delay, you're dead. Don't buy this game unless you have a team to play with (max 6), they didn't improve the online experience even though they improved the game.
