Let's be honest here, it's just another Call of Duty game. I think Ghosts falls a little bit short of its predecessors in some ways but takes baby steps forward in other places. This game may have been rushed, because I notice that there seems to be a lack of guns in this game in comparison to previous Call of Duty titles. Some of the guns cannot even be used (such as SMG's) because of the size of these enormous maps. Seriously, try running around in a wide open field with a Vector or some other SMG. You just can't do it. The game forces you to use guns like Assault Rifles, Snipers, LMG's, and the "new" Marksman Rifles (Sniper Rifles with higher rate of fire). There is only one map that I can think of where you can dominate the battlefield with an SMG or Shotgun.
Another problem I have with this game is the number of guns that they have recycled from previous games. The MTAR is now an SMG, the SVU is a Marksman Rifle, and they also converted an Assault Rifle from Black Ops II into an LMG. It's like Infinity Ward has just stopped getting creative with their guns which is pretty upsetting considering this game is known for a Run n' Gun, up-tempo gameplay.
The perk setup is something that they have changed up, however. There are much more perks to choose from and each perk has a value that takes up a certain amount of perk slots in your class. You can choose 4 really good perks, or maybe 8 lesser perks. The possibilities are endless, but it seems like I can never find the absolute perfect perk setup. Maybe that is a good thing for competition, I don't know.
Finally, let's touch on Campaign and the all new Extinction mode a little bit. The campaign is great, although short. It has a lot of twists and turns that will keep you at the edge of your seat for a few hours (that's how long it takes to beat the game). To be honest about Extinction mode, if you are looking for a good replacement for CoD Zombies, don't look here. It's fun but doesn't compare to Zombies

overall its a great game. I sure am glad i didn't buy it tho the single player story line isnt very long at all like maybe 4 to 5 hours of playtime before you beat it. The online part of it is great i enjoyed the working on a team aspect of it. that way you dont die as soon as you spawn and the alien aspect of it online is fun and a nice touch as well.
After watching a trailer, it looked like a fun action packed game much different from the last COD of duty game I played (COD 4: Modern Warefare). I really saw no difference in quality or gameplay from any other COD game I have played. I assume most people get this game for the multiplayer, which hasn't really changed from any previous game. The story is extremely short and I finished the game in around 4-5 hours.
