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)

ok i will do this short because i really dont have much to say about this game. 1st good thing was the story mode, they added alot of differant tweaks to how you progress through each mission. They brought back a few playlists from Black Ops but killed the way the guns shoot in game. In my time on the game i tried to find a major addition to raise the intrest in the game, but sadly its just another thrown up COD remake slapped with a new title. I would deff rent before you buy just in case you agree with me. Also remember this is just my opinion, i gave this game a 5 and thats just for the story
FYI not the best speller sorry. Ill start with the campaign. To be fair I didnt finish it so people may have more interest as it goes on but i made it halfway through and for me it was dull it jumped around and i didnt like how certian things could affect my future if i wanted that i would play mass effect (which i have) to continue i also didnt like how once again the AI is useless. I might have made it farther in the game if it wasnt for there little side missions that are optional except for two. They dont really go with the story and the are hard and painfull and once again the AI is even worse. My lone love of this game was Zombies. By far in my opinion the best idea and map created it took a little time to see how it works but it was worth it i love how the map is made and there is a good objective besides living. However the characters of zombies are anoying and besides one, they look weird and chatter is just stupid. At last the Multi player to be fair i gave it a good shot the guns are ok perk/point system are not bad and the scorestreaks are ok but are too hard to get after 9 kills without dying. 1.47 k/d if you think iam just a bad player. (FYI to be fair i play hardcore might be better for core players) In addition i like the combat training and i like the maps but three. The thing that ruined this game for me is something called LAG COMPINSATION. Worst idea ever. in short it means that if u have green bar guy on other team has red bar it will bump you down to red bar. I didnt believe it till i was HOST and i lagged everywhere. and its not just me my friends complain about lag constantly. the other thing is spawn system. in every game i play there is atleast 2-3 spawn kills i even spawn kill people its really bad. So for me i like this game sometimes hate it the rest of the time. i hope you have better luck than i did and i hope that you have a better experiance than me this is my opinion of the game i hoped it helped 2 out of 10
