3.0 out of 5 stars Call of Duty Ghosts review, 17 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Call of Duty: Ghosts (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
Same old, same old. Call of Duty: Ghosts is the same game as previous years, just changed visually. This game was made for the Xbox one, so the game on the Xbox 360 misses out. They promised a visual spectacle, and it is on the Xbox one, but on the Xbox 360, the game is just the same as previous years.

The single players campaign is ok, I personally like it. Some of the missions are very good, including stealth missions, as well as straight up fight scenes which we've come to love in the Call of Duty series. You get very attached to the characters, especially the dog, Riley. However, he is not used much in the campaign as was made out in the trailers. However, some parts of the missions are completely unrealistic, including the ending which *SPOILER ALERT* when you shoot Rorke, the main antagonist, under water, and yet somehow he survives. Also there's a point in one of the first missions where there is a cutscene which is completely identical to one from Modern Warfare 2, as if a copy and paste job had been done ([...] ). Not a bad campaign, by any standards, not brilliant, but pretty good.

Onto multiplayer. If you know the Call of Duty series well, then you will recognise that the multiplayer is incredibly similar to past games. If you may not know, Activision and Treyarch make the Call of Duty games every other year, whereby Activision make the game one year, then Treyarch make it the next. Activision made Ghosts, and Treyarch made Black Ops 2. You can see the differences between these games, so the game is very similar to the Modern Warfare series. You die incredibly fast online, so people trying to learn the ropes may struggle, although a recent patch has come through whereby player health has increased. It's a fast action game with only a few strategies need, but if a straight up run and gun game is what you're looking for, this is the game for you. However, the maps were made for the Xbox one. They map sizes has increased slightly from the recent Call of Duty's, and this shows on some of them, such as Siege. Xbox 360 only allows for 6v6 gamemodes, where as the Xbox one allows 9v9, so therefore you can find people more easily. Also, there are now very few players online on Ghosts on the Xbox 360, as the majority of them have moved to Xbox one, so finding a game in some gamemodes, such as Hunted or Search and Rescue is difficult, but not in the well know gamemodes such as TDM or domination. But they have removed some gamemodes such as Demolition which was my favourite :( There are some over powered guns as well, such as the MSBS, which a lot of players used, but Activision have done a good job in gun balance. Overall, multiplayer isn't that bad.

Extinction is Activision's attempt at creating a rival against Zombies from the Treyarch series, and although it is much much better than the Spec Ops from the Modern Warfare series, it is still not as good as Zombies. The fact that there is an end to Extinction means that replayability is hard, but if you have a group of friends, it is very challenging at times and can lead to some very fun times.

I'm not going to bother talking about Squad modes because I don't really understand it, I don't play it and I don't think many people do play it.

Overall, not the best game, but it can be fun at times if lag doesn't screw you over.

There's no more than 33k people playing on Xbox One Ghosts at anytime.
There are more people playing MW3 right now. (37k)
I know it will go up sharply at after Christmas but I guarantee more will still be on 360 way into the new year.
