Call of Duty: Ghosts (PS3) by Activision
3.0 out of 5 stars Is it any good?, 17 Nov 2013
Is it any good?

Well, that depends.

If you are after a great campaign game, this aint it. 3 2-hour sessions and the main game was complete for me, and worse than any of the Modern Warfare ones or Black ops 1 (didnt have the second one). Certainly not as good, on any count. Story, gameplay or graphics.

Having just played The Last Of Us, for the first time on PS3 I thought the graphics looked terrible. TLOU looked great, and I was expecting this to come closish. Not really an issue as we arent here for graphics. I have gone back to MW2 and there is a huge improvement but you really hope for a bit more from such a blockbuster release.

The real story behind the film is so banal and dull it makes you wonder why they even took it on in the first place.

Then they are given phone duty, which they abandon right at the crucial moment as soon as they get hungry.

The real story involved the Americans being holed up in the canadian embassy for weeks, pretty safely. 2 CIA agents turned up, walked them through the airport and they all… Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Over your head?, 20 Mar 2013
I needed to pipe up in support for this film because there are too many negative reviews where people haven't appreciated the film, as I think they have missed the point.

This is a film that has sacrificed much for the sake of events and it's message. In the same way Maya sacrifices her personal life, friendships and relationships, the film decides to ignore all of that too, as the film and Maya just concentrate on their goal. If Maya is more interested in finding OSB then that is all the film concentrates on too.

Once you realise this you can understand the sadness that underlines the film, and the ending becomes much more profound. About halfway through we think we… Read more
