This game is considered by me and many others to be a complete mess and is pretty obscured by most people. What makes it so different from the other Call of Duty games is that it was developed by none other than Treyarch instead of Infinity Ward like the first Call of Duty games.
Another thing is that this was the first Call of Duty from the main series to not be on the PC. There were many bugs and glitches in the game as well, where you could be hiding behind cover and still take a load of damage or your team mates could push you out of cover, leaving you wide open (which could seriously $%#& you off if you were going for a play-through on Veteran difficulty).
The controls also seem awkward compared to the past and future games. You have a grenade cook timer around your grenade in this game which isn't in any of the others, and if I can remember correctly, picking up a thrown enemy grenade was also awkward.
One last issue with the campaign are the awful checkpoints that it gives you. You could do so much work at one point, suddenly die from whatever it was that killed you (most likely a glitch causing you to get caught in the enemy fire) and be sent back and lose 30 minutes of your hard work picking off enemies and trying to stay alive.
However, the story mode was pretty compelling and nice, and had some great character development, which I think is a plus. The game did that part better than it's predecessors.
I'd recommend this game only if you're into Call of Duty and would want to try a gem in the series, otherwise it wouldn't hurt to pass this one by as it's considered to be a load of $%#&.
