Put this on my GameQ out of spite and as a joke, and guess what shows up at my house a few days later?
All mad aside, the game isn't all that bad. Story wise. I thought that for a FPS the story was REALLY good. This time around, the writers really stepped things up and made the campaign really enjoyable!
Campaign had a lot of new innovations that mostly helped out. For example, I actually felt compelled to replay the story after I was finished, as there are actual choices you can make that will change the ending of the game. Now that alone impressed me.
Another of the additions to campaign include being able to change your loadout before a mission. If you only wanted to use two guns the entire game, you could. I thought it was absolutely hilarious to run around with a tiger camo RPG.
One of the additions that really hurt campaign, however, was the addition of the Strike Force missions. The idea is simple, give the player a few units to control from either an overhead view, or taking control of them. Sounds cool, but the execution was horrible. Without you controlling them, the units were absolutely useless, and with enemies spawning EVERYWHERE every few seconds, there really wasn't much you could do. Overall very frustrating and not in the least bit enjoyable.
Multiplayer... just no. Core is now hardcore, where you die in 2 shots no matter what gun there is. I found myself wondering what hardcore is like. Do you die if someone looks in your general direction? STAY AWAY FROM MULTIPLAYER.
Ive never really been a fan of COD zombies, so I only played a little of the games new zombies. Same old, same old. If you like that, then go for it.
Overall, they did some really nice things with the game. BO2 really surprised me with their single player innovation and amazing writing that keeps you on the edge of your seat, with one of the best villains to date. But over and over again, I found myself saying "Thank God I didn't buy this game." Another year

seems they made an attempt to come up with something new and fresh to the COD games but i feel like i just payed for new maps because the game types are all the same the only thing i find new is the weapons and the class set ups this was really disappointing if i could go back in time and save 60$ i would in a heart beat.

Just to start off, I have been playing Call of Duty since Call of Duty 2. I put 9 months into Call of Duty 4 multiplayer, 6 into CoD: WaW, and 6 into MW2, and 3 into Black Ops. You see a pattern here? Nothing really has changed. I picked up this game, beat 4 campaign missions, went on Multiplayer, went 23-8, and then I was done. It wasn't fun anymore. The magic that made the past games good has been sucked out and rebranded to the point its just gray mush to me. For those who like this game, I'm not hating on you. I used to be exactly like you, but its time for me to leave this franchise. I will be looking forward to GTA V and get my FPS buzz from Halo 4.
