i had my doubts about this game when i first got it but man was i proved wrong. I thought that i would be playing same old cod but nope. This game takes it to a whole new level and I love that.

CAMPAIGN- improved from the first one a lot. better story, cool weapons, awesome gear, and makes every mission more unique (also like playing in the future). So far the only thing I would have to say about the Campaign is that once in a while voices will become loud than very hard to hear but not a game breaker

Multiplayer- activision did a pretty good job on it this year. Since this game is based on a lot of the future you can guess that there is a bunch of new weapons. The new weapons, cool maps, sweet kill streaks, and more attachments make Multiplayer very fun (customization is pretty crazy) . I am also happy they brought back the fun modes with gun game. the new mode where matching you up with the same level skill as you was also a cool idea.

zombies- helz yea!!!! they finally made zombies a important mode. the maps, guns, and different modes on zombies is fantastic. One mode that i like was playing team zombies. where you would go against another team to see who could last longer. Now they even have a story on zombies, that's fricken cool.

In all it was a great game. from the campaign to zombies activision really set the bar high. If you do not have this game go and get it (at least a must rent). Best COD, you could really make an argument that it was. The only reason why this game is not a 10 is because of some glitching and freezing up. With some patches my rating will be changing to a 10.

If your a huge fan of the call of duty genre then you will love this game and the improvements they made.
Pros:
-Pick 10 system makes your online experience more customizable
-Campaign follows the last game well if your more of a story driven campaign guy/gal like me.
-The maps are expansive with multiple paths to go through, which gives multiple options to flank your enemies.
-The achievements make you want to actually continue to play the game, complete all the options to get the new awesome diamond camo.

Cons:
-The spawn placements make for some horrible online play. You will walk forward 50 yards, a teammate kills and enemy and that enemy then spawns behind you and then goes on a 'from behind' kill streak
-The lobby takes a while to get into a game. If someone leaves the lobby it will then reset the counter and not jump into the game. Matchmaking is not as bad as when it first came out but still needs improvement

So all in all, the pros outway the cons. It is definitely a game I would reccomend to thos who like the COD style play.

After playing Battlefield 3 and Far Cry 3, this game just feels old school.. It looks okay, but nothing as good as BF3, and the game play feels more like an XBOX 1 experience.. IT is fun, but there are MUCH better games to play................ If you like COD, I'd say go with COD MW2, after that, this game franchise has become stale..
