Not the COD I Wished for,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Call of Duty: Ghosts Hardened Edition - PlayStation 4 (Video Game)
This review will be of the multiplayer mode, as I don't believe more than 1% of people buy the game for the campaign.
There is nothing wrong with the way the game plays. Your character moves fluently, the knee slide works well and is surprisingly useful, and the game sounds beautiful. I am a bit of an audiophile, especially when it comes to gun and combat noise, and this game delivers. The next-gen version of the game is definitely superior, and it does look quite good.
However there are several major flaws with the game.
You die extremely fast. I do not prefer this, some might, this is just my opinion. There is no point in having the blood appear on your screen when you are injured, as you never escape death. I escape perhaps 1 out of every 100 "gunfights". This is another problem. There are no gunfights anymore. 60% of the time you die from a direction you can't see because the maps are so hectic and busy, and if you happen to see someone either your gun better already be up and firing or you are dead. The spawning is horrible. They have implemented these gigantic maps for some reason, and yet you die instantly upon spawn 10% of the time.
It also takes FOREVER to level up. This can be a good thing, to add replay-ability, but it is not fun when you have to level up to earn squad points to unlock things, and it takes an hour to earn 1 point.
The only fun I have been having in this game is sniping, and that can get old. I have basically put down this game for good as of this review.
My advice: If you are on 360/PS3/PC stick with Black Ops 2. If you are on a next-gen console, buy a different game. Perhaps the map packs will change my mind, but as of now I am done with Infinity Ward COD games.
*Please keep in mind this is COD, and every year part of the community loves it and part of the community hates it. This is merely my opinion, and you really need to play the game yourself for a few hours before you decide if it is worth the money.
