a very good online multi-player game
on 7 May 2016
“Call of Duty: Ghosts” is an action-adventure videogame. It’s a first-person shooter, and continues the saga established in the earlier instalments of ‘Call of Duty’. It's a good game, and plays well on the PS4.
The story presents an alternative timeline, in which much of the Middle East has suffered from nuclear destruction – which has caused a global economic crisis. A new ‘Federation’ of nation-states (led by Venezuela) have formed into a super-power – and this threatens the status quo. And so a clandestine group of US special forces – known as ‘the Ghosts’ – must embark on a mission behind enemy lines, to prevent world domination by the Federation. This is a fun military-style game, and those who’ve enjoyed earlier games in this series will probably like it. It has a very good multiplayer mode, with superb gameplay.
The single-player campaign is entertaining, but rather limited. It tends to lack any sort of innovation, and is no different from earlier games. Yet it’s still fun. You play – for the most part – as a character called Logan Walker, who’s a member of the Ghosts. The main story takes about 10 hours to complete, depending on the difficulty setting. But it’s the online multi-player adventures – especially ‘Squads’ – that’s great, where you can play as two opposing teams, as well as in wave-based survival match. And there is also ‘Extinction’ - a new 4-player cooperative mode, in which players fight various aliens (known as Cryptids) in a base-defending survival-style map. There's plenty of re-play value to be had - especially if you've a group of friends who you enjoy playing online with.
Overall, this game is a lot of fun. If you enjoy the gameplay style of the ‘Call of Duty’ franchise then I recommend this game. While the single-player campaign is rather limited, the online multi-player options provide for lots of action.
