Everyother game in the world is striving to make the next best game, the COD francise has come short in that department. with this new one, after starting a mission you can't end in the middle go back and change your loadout. after you've chosen what you thought you wanted you're stuck til the next mission. if you make it. even if you restart your game your still stuck with what saved.
All they did was keep the same basic cruddy game and added new skins and weapons. your AI teammates in campaign are still stupid and there is still a huge lack in what to do next. like the second mission there is no explanation of what to do at the research facilities doors.
what a waste of money I'm going to back to play Borderlands 2.
There was some good things about this game. New weapons. and the zombie game type.
This game has a lot of bugs in it. The multiplayer sucks. The maps were not set up to be a run and shot game. Mostly just camping it feels like. The campaign was a little hard to follow and it felt like a old game. nothing really stood out. This game was a let down. DONT BUY. maybe rent. I am just going to set this game down and go play Halo 4.

Let me first start by saying that the fanboys will hate on my review for obvious reasons and that is okay at the end of the day you need to make up your own mind but this is my opinion.
I have been a hardcore COD fan for a long time. I have watched the game turn into the most cinematic event ever and one of the most beautiful games of our time, that is until BO2 came out. I am all for change if it is good, this however was not.
Graphically this game is multiple steps backwards, it looks like a Goldeneye HD game instead of the masterpiece that was MW3. Sound quality is par but again nothing compared to the last game. Gameplay is similar and other than the fact they brought back the running dive not much has changed there.
Now for the game breakdown, the campaign story is just boring, the readers digest is we are at war and have "futuristic" toys at our disposal, (something that GRAW did much better.) The multiplayer feels unfinished and without any form of polish. The Zombie mode feels tacked on because fans wanted it back, the care that the mode had before is not apparent, however there is a new mode that has a few minutes of appeal, until you realize it is just a cover up for the same thing. Guns of the future are all apparently going to look like they came from Borderlands' Pandora, and finally the power ups that are not just re skinned are just not very fun or useful.
I will say this is after playing the game for around four hours with a friend of mine and that we had all but made up our minds in about 30 minutes, however if you have been a fan of Call Of Duty this game will leave you wanting more. If you are new to the series please don't judge based on this. Whatever you do RENT BEFORE YOU BUY!!!! i cannot stress that enough
Sorry COD im switching over to HALO (which hurts my soul a little)
