This was the first time I played a COD title. I have to say I was impressed.
The visuals are stunning.
The story mode is cool.
I like the trophy goals.
It realy was a fun game. Unfortunaly, I bought this game to replace my PC multiplayer. Well, the multiplayer on here is a little weird. So many people seem to like it, and maybe im just not use to consol multiplayers, but I just didnt like it.
The random spawning is what really killed me. I read that this was suppose to stop people from being spawn camped, but i constantly found myself being spawned right in front of the enemy. And because I wasnt anygood, BOOM... DEAD.
I might not have been to good at this game, but on some PC games I am use to getting 25 kill sprees, and scores like 100+ kills / 25 deaths a round. Well, when I looked at some of the top shots I played with. It seemed that they werent doing all that great either. It was almost always 2 to 3 kill then a death. How is that fun?
I think alot of it had to do with the way people were spawning. It just seemed like alot of kamikazes running in the frey and stealing a kill just to end up dead one second later. There was no teamwork, tactics, or planning involved.
There also seemed to be a ton of nade spamming. which alot of people were complaining about.

I was looking for a good multiplayer, but got a great campaign.
I cant rate it down just because I wasn't able to keep up with the multiplayer, so I give it a 9.

I admit the main reason i bought this game was to kill the Zombies with friends. I figured it was a gimick to buy the game but was surprisingly wrong.

I would of probably gave the game a 9 if it was longer, i beat it in more/less an evening. For that reason i would suggest renting it if you are not concerned about the minigame or if you can get a cheaper used copy.

The single player campaign is incredibly well done, and the multiplayer is equally well done. I give the game a 10 because of the NZombie aspect of the game. Whether playing solo, with a friend who happens to be hanging out at the house, or with 3 friends online, NZombie's delivers hours of entertainment.

I do have a few complaints. First is the fact that you cannot have four players locally playing NZombies, yet you can have other four player matchups locally. Second is the horrible customer service that Activision and Sony have put together to address the issues many players have with disconnects, lag, and not being able to join friends.

COD: 4 was incredible and Modern Warfare 2 looks to address many of the issues I just complained about plus there will be Aliens to shoot instead of Zombies. Or just maybe there will be Alien Zombies!

We can dream can't we?!
