My biggest disappointment in 2012!

Granted I did not let myself get hyped up over this game since every year there is another one coming out. But with that said I could not help but after playing both single and multiplayer to feel very disappointed. Now thankfully I only ended up paying $19 for this title but that only helped soften the blow this game gave me. Starting with the single player you are given a story where the bad guy is angry at the U.S. and gathers followers by claiming to support the 99% and it is up to the good guys to stop him. The story is not entirely linear and for some can get confusing going back and forth on the timeline. But don't let the generic story plot scare you until you hear about the way they stole from ME3 and Deus Ex by making your decisions or lack of decision change the outcome in the game. Now I loved that about Mass Effect but it does not translate as well in a game that you just want a canon storyline without diverging alternate endings. Now if that wasn't bad enough lets talk about how they added something else that effects the story called "strikeforce missions" which play like RTS games and just don't feel natural in an FPS game. This now leaves us with the most lackluster and possibly worst part of the game, multiplayer. I can't even fully describe how bad the multiplayer is between the guns that all seem the same and the messing up of everything that made the other games multiplayer great. Matter of fact if you want to play a good multiplayer with COD then play one of the previous ones. Overall I am giving this a 5 out of 10 and really hope nobody is willing to pay $60 for this junk.
