    Call of Duty: Ghosts is a mess of a game. That’s not to say that it’s nonfunctional or bad to play, rather, it loses sight of its core principles and eschews an amazing opportunity with the advent of our transition to next-gen, as well as being the first true IW CoD sans Zampella and West, through poorly constructed (and utilised) tech, half-assed delivery of modes and a single-player campaign that sets the series back more than a few years.

    Quite simply, it’s hard to tell much difference between this and the 360 version. Textures are muddy, lines are jagged and it lacks the smooth anti-aliasing of the PS4 edition. It’s hard to tell exactly what this version provides that justifies labeling it as a next generation game.

Crowded tiny maps. No recoil. 3-4 hits to kill. Melee is stronger than bullets (one hit knife kill). Ridiculous campaign that belongs in a cheesy movie. LAST GEN graphics. This game attracts braindead teenagers, lonely old men, and miserable men who neglect their families. Full Review »
