The game itself is totally fun when it isn't crashing. Sadly, this game in particular killed my BluRay drive, so my PS3 no longer reads BluRay movies, or PS3 games. If it weren't for the PS3 death, I'd rate it higher. But... I can't even play anything anymore. Zombies was the best... when I could actually play it. All in all, 60% of the time the game works. However, 40% of the time is crashing, and/or freezing up.

So,I've been playing since CoD 4,and I have to say this is one of the best games out right now.I also play many other FPS format games so i'm no fanboy.However I wouldn't suggest this to anyone who hasn't played a FPS because if you play online, you'll just get your butt handed to you.
Story Mode:The best in CoD so far,with a few exceptions,namely the diffrent Create-A-Class system,and Strike Force Missions.The C-A-C is NOT on Pick-10 and is really odd,but still easy to use,so just do well to note that(Pick-10 is a much better system).
Strike Force Missions:By FAR the WORST aspect of the game.They even effect the outcome of you story.I only have 2000 characters and don't want to waste them on telling you how distinctly horrible this almost manditory part of the Story Mode this is.I'll just leave it at this;
Dear David Vondaharr,FIX YOUR AI.
Zombies:Too much change.Treyarch has moved on from making big maps and has changed over to making more,interconnected, small maps.I know this sounds like a travesty to Left 4 Dead fans, but it's fun with friends.On the flip side,Solo is only interesting when it gets difficult, most times not even fun.Now the Story Mode for Zombies is still 90% Easter Eggs and there's NO Zombies Story Mode.That's what Treyarch said was gonna be in this game.Let's give them a chance in the future DLCs.
Multiplayer:Best on CoD so far!Pick-10 is hands down the best C-A-C in CoD.And now that all the worst glitches have been patched, I have no complaints!Everything is great about this aspect.No spoilers,discover it for yourself.
In case you didn't know:Cod has the smoothest controls in the FPS Genre so keep that in mind if you're thinking about renting or buying any CoD game.
Overall:A great game that needs improvents, but not that many,an easy 8.5.
