This game really wasn't wort the time. I finished the campaign with a perfect ending and I was somewhat satisfied with it. I liked the who open ended endings and twists with certain decisions you make. Then the other stuff! Multiplayer was craptacular and frustrating. There is a lot of lag! No joke, I'm thinking it has to do with the amount of people who got online at the same time since this was a highly anticipated game. Still, I didn't enjoy anything about the multiplayer. Like any CoD game it's just the same stuff all over again; new guns, new attachments, new killstreaks that's all. Zombies, it's is zombies so what do you expect. Just people who shoot zombies till that wave counter hits infinity maybe. Who knows what happens when you reach a seriously high number on that wave counter but I could be doing better things that just waste time and energy. The sounds in this game is horrific. A stealth chopper sounds like John Goodman after eating some spicy guacamole sauce. Lower killstreaks are pretty overpowered and makes a game unenjoyable if you keep running into those try hard groups and they spam the heck out of those UAV and lightning strikes. UAV is a cinch to get in this game but you can't unlock ghost until you're level 55 and it takes nearly a lifetime to level up unless you love spending a total of 48 hours playing this game trying to unlock it. No joke, there are people who already have days banked on to this game. So do yourself a favor, skip this game. Get Assassins Creed 3 or something else with substance.

I play CoD for the campaign. This story is fragmented, boring and just lame. I was hoping that it would be great considering David S. Goyer (he wrote The Dark Knight) wrote the story for it. The story is on par with any of the Stallone/Arnold bad "B" action movie plots. Very Disappointing. Multiplayer is just as frantic and controller wrenching as any of the other CoDs. It is still inhabited by 12 year olds and foul mouthed post puberty jerks. I thought Zombies would be the saving grace for the title, I was wrong. Tranzit is an awesome concept, but ultimately FAIL.... Maybe they can work the kinks out for Blops 3.
Graphics are still good, although not as good as previous titles. Controls are the same, but this one was rushed. Lots of bugs, see through walls and floors. No freezes or getting stuck on anything.
