1.0 out of 5 stars
Worst Single Player Campaign Ever, and I mean Ever Ever, 6 Nov. 2013
= Fun:1.0 out of 5 stars
I have just finished Ghosts and like as expected the single player campaign only lasted a matter of hours. Okay that is too be expected, but I'm not going to complain about the graphics,there are enough people explaining that already. Simply put the story-line in the game is absolutely dire, I just cant explain how bad this is. There isn't one single character in the whole game that isn't just meh. You simply don't care about any of them at all
This is like a very bad movie, I was actually glad when the game finished and I didn't have to participate in such a weak unimaginative story. I have all the previous COD games and I play them all the time. I even replayed MW3 just to get a feel for ghosts coming up. But in comparison MW3 stomps it all day long. It does try hard with some tank sequences and some flying sequences but they are still not as good as in Battlefield 3.
All in all this game feels a little bit like a parody of itself, the underwater sequences are good, but not much better than MW3, the space scenes are okay but feel like I'm in the movie moonraker ( which was good for the 80's but laughable in the 21st Century).
Simply put, all the textures, frame rates and polygon counts in the world wont make up for the very very poor story. If the game is all about multiplayer, then don't sucker people in to buying the game, have at least the same mentality as Counter Strike. And please please, don't get me started on how gimmicky the dog, send it to live in the country on a farm, and give me back the assault drone all day long.
