Loved the franchise. I played all of them all the way from the first call of duty. Lets face it I bought this game for the multiplayer. The campaign is just a perk and when I put the game in the first thing I do is multiplayer and then eventually force myself to play the campaign. This is just a map pack it is exactly the same as MW2 and it really pis_s_ed me off and made me lose interest very quickly. Then they want me to pay $15 four times for more map packs. Thank you for thinking about the fans who have supported you for so long and not looking at us as cash cows ripping us off every way that you can think of like that other call of duty club thing that they want you to pay $60 a year for now too. Good thing that was optional. Sold the game on Ebay after a few months of owning it as I got bored nothing new. Campaign was really good, but again I did not buy it for the campaign and it was 5 hours long.

I use to be a fan of the COD series but after playing BF3 I am no longer such a fan, of the multiplayer that is. The stories in COD I feel are better developed and that gives the advantage to COD for the single player campaign. But for upgrades in graphics, multiplayer map size, and multiplayer games I see this as simply a expansion pack to previous COD games. Sorry to see the MW series storyline come to a possible end. COD needs to focus on some serious upgrades to graphics and destructions online and makes some nice big maps for multiplayer experience.

I was a huge fan of this Franchise and looked forward to this installment and regret to rate this as poor as it gets. Nothing created more intense argument like "Quick Scoping". I was really surprised to find out that no alternative to this childish game play was created. Instead, I was greeted to my first map with an entire group of free for all using sniper rifles and "Quick Scoping". I played all the way up to level 19 and removed the game never to even think of this franchise again.
Second large issue.
Being forced to play game modes is extremely unpleasing. I refuse to play any mode that requires me to empty a clip into an enemy to kill him. Hardcore is the only mode I will ever engage in and carry a great deal of disdain towards the makers for this. Level 20 is required to play hardcore and thus will force my hand not to prestige.
I failed to see any new content that stands out from previous version of this game. They could have just as easily released a new set of map packs instead of releasing this installment.
I am returning the game and thank Gamefly for the opportunity to review this game and avoid having a franchise prophet from failing to hear my voice and address my concerns especially when it is inline with such a huge portion of their community.
