Nov 18, 2013They claim it is next-gen yet it isn't much different from the first Modern Warfare.The singleplayer story is okay as usual but the MP doesn't add anything new to the FPS genre and the dogs are unnecessary.Just the annual cash grab I guess.It's almost worth it for the new zombie mode co-op if you want to have fun with a friend or 2.
Nov 19, 2013It's the same damn game every single year. 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.
Nov 28, 2013This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. I'm sad to say that COD has completely run it's course. This iteration is so poorly done on so many levels. The campaign is laughable and unimaginative. The multiplayer is the same warmed over, regurgitated garbage Activision has been selling for years.
Mechanically, the game is next to broken. The lag is enough to make you throw your controller and the map design is awful.
It disappoints graphically as well. This game certainly doesn't have a next-gen look or feel.
In my opinion, you should save your $60 unless you simply can't live one year without your call of duty fix.… Expand
Nov 23, 2013it's Modern Warfare 2, but with dogs. How do they get away with releasing the same game over and over? Activision pays reviewers to give an 8 or higher, so don't trust the flawed score on the left. ex-IGN employees actually admitted that they get paid to give a higher score. Due to this, it being a copy of CoD4 (over and over) and the fact that this franchise has destroyed the online FPS genre, I give it 0/10… Expand
Nov 28, 2013Awful game, taken it back a few years, worst in the series by a long way, nothing good to say about it at all, the multiplayer is really inconsistent, the campaign is boring and for people that say it's a CoD game, expect it to be what CoD is all about, you're wrong, it's barely similar to any of the MW games of BO2
Nov 23, 2013It's CoD. Painfully easy even on the hardest of settings and the multi player is as it was before.
I'm glad I finished this at a mates to save myself the purchase as I was considering it what with the new consoles.
All in all, if you like CoD games, you'll like the newest CoD game, if you dislike CoD games, you'll likely dislike CoD games. The same goes for if you are indifferent about the CoD series. It really doesn't change anything that the series does, but then, why would it?… Expand
Dec 28, 2013This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. This game is a major disappointment, i already reviewed 360, but i had to come for this, i returned this game within 24 hours, i got half my money back. here's a list of reasons to keep this short, ON WHY THIS GAME, SUCKS ASS!!!
1. "ghosts" where the is ghost, I swear he was promised to us.
2. aliens are just snake-spiders that ooze purple ****
3. i know this isn't activation, but where the are my zombies?!
4. multiplayer is outright broken, the server lag is bad, makes battlefield netcode look like god descending from heaven.
5. destructible environments? HA!… Expand
Nov 21, 2013All this game had going for it was a decent multi-player that was just like it's predecessors. Now, keep in mind, I played this game up to level 56 MP and have what I'd like to think is a decent amount of experience with it.
My conclusion is that it is stale and boring. Just like MW3. Just like MW2. Maybe I just enjoy Treyarch's adaptions a bit more. Even then, this game is getting dull to the point of hilarity.
If you want a real "next-gen" shooter, it's obvious you'll want to pick up Battlefield 4.… Expand
Dec 22, 2013So I hear you're releasing the same game you have been releasing for five years straight now- take my 60 bucks please.
Is what I'd imagine anyone would be saying if they were able to think back an entire year. Activision must be thanking their stars that the only thing anyone can remember in this country is the last big mac they funneled down their throat- so about two minutes ago.
This game series is the perfect metaphor for America in every way.… Expand
Jan 4, 2014Nice graphics and general game play. Basically the same game that you played years ago but better looking. I would look else ware if you have ever played a COD game in the past few years its just another cookie cutter copy. Still great for fan boys I'm sure.
Dec 1, 2013What can I say. It's a Call of Duty game. There has been no change in gameplay, no new things you can do, same old graphics, poor storyline, terrible community, and easy as ever. Oh, and to top it all off, they ruined the one thing they had going for them, survival. They put in aliens! Seriously, its a version of zombies. If you want a shooter that has more options then running and shooting, try the new battlefield. Or something else.… Expand
Dec 2, 2013Ghost is the worst call of duty in the call of duty franchise. Huge ass and the worst maps that promotes camping. IED? What the is that You cant even avoid it. You can get a dog with 4 kills wtf. a A k9 unit in bo2 is like 17 straight kills and gets as much kill as the guard dog. You can't even see a thing in ghost. It is so hard to see. You can be in one place and get shot from 10 different directions. I would be running around the map trying to find someone forever and then i would get shot from behind The spawns are HORRIBLE. I would walk 2 steps and get kill. Sometimes I would even spawn behind an enemy. Huge maps but few places to spawn really. Infinity Ward made a big deal about some stupid dog that only shows up like twice in the campaign. Who gives a about the ai control fish when you get close to them just make the multiplayer right that is what people buy the game for. They took us people's favorite game mode like demoltion, hardpoint, ctf.… Expand
Dec 2, 2013Its bad when the campaign is the only enjoyable part of a COD game. Maps are trash, don't even get me started on how bad the spawn system is, and oh yeah it takes 2 full clips to kill a dog (5 kill streak) but 3 bullets to kill a human. Also, if you get into a game with bad connectoin you will die without seeing any bullets leave the enemies gun. I have played COD more than any other game since Black Ops, but I can honestly say that this game has turned me into a Battlefield fan. I will never buy another IW COD game, and will be trading this in as soon as anything that looks remotely good is released for Xbox One.… Expand
Dec 3, 2013The multiplayer is the worse ever! the maps are way too big. the lag and hit detection is garbage. the killstreaks suck. everything about this game is crap. there is a guy on youtube search for theassistman who gives a very good review of how bad this game is. do not waste your money on this game you will be sorry and wont play it after a few days. i tried to like it like others but thats just not possible. i wish i could give this game a -10! Oh and there is no dedicated servers like they said!… Expand
Dec 5, 2013This game is a poorly crafted mess with clunky and irresponsive controls. The story line is completely cliche and offers nothing new to the experienced FPS players leaving you with nothing but a bad taste in the mouth. The multiplayer aims to insult your intelligence as it thrusts you into an instant loss scenario where you are given pitiful weapons and are constantly at the mercy of the higher ranks merely because you just started. I feel like this game almost makes you far stupider while playing it with enough mindless action to rival bashing your skull against a brick wall which would hurt far less than this monstrosity of a game.… Expand
Dec 11, 2013Game is terrible. I expected so much more from it. Its getting a 1 because I sonewhat enjoyed the story, but the multiplayer is the worst I have ever playin a COD game. Its completely broken and they don't seem to care to fix it. Such a waste of money...
Dec 12, 2013Incredibly horrible! Just a giant bomb of a game! So many promises and hopes into into Ghosts, and it didn't live up to its expectations! The maps are God awful; way too big which slows down the gameplay, and the spawning is horrible as well! Not to mention you die way too easily as well! Screw the graphics and the "visual sense"! This is about the online experience! For those of you who have never played the other call of duty games, I strongly encourage you to go check them out. After returning Ghosts for GTAV, I found myself relieved of stress and anxiety. I went back to playing Black Ops 2, and I had a blast compared to Ghosts.… Expand
Feb 3, 2014This game is terrible. It completely upheaves what good work Infinity Ward had done, and left us with a steaming pile of crap. After purchading this, I'm now asking myself why I buy Call of Duty every year. And to be honest, I don't know.
To start off, the campaign leaves you dissatisfied with a taste of possibly some action and caring for the characters. Overall, I felt no remorse for anybody in the story and had little to no fun playing it. Story: 5
The multiplayer was beyond terrible - less appealing than ever before. I don't even have the urge to play enough to prestige, which has never happened to me before. This game makes Black Ops look like a masterpiece. The multiplayer is unoriginal, and if anything, actually dimmed down. It's completely unbalanced. Multiplayer: 3.
Extinction - or, in other words, a ripoff version of Zombies. Less fun, less attractive, and more ridiculous, you're fighting aliens this time. Complete a few bland objectives, shoot a few guns, and run alot. It's Zombies without the fun of Zombies. There's barely any dynamic evemts, except for Hive placement. Extinction: 4.
Other, miscellaneous stuff? The graphics look like they're from a game produced in 2008. Lag, hit detection, and other persisting problems that have been in CoD games forever and never fixed exist bere as well. There aren't dynamic events in multiplayer, despite what the developers said. So lies, too. Other: 2
Overall, you're looking at a piece of trash. Worthless. Overall: 3.… Expand
Dec 16, 2013When Activision advertised this game a few months ago, they made a huge commotion about how its going to have a new engine and it will be updated for Next-Gen consoles, sadly this isn't the case. I truly feel that Activision & Infinity Ward have well and truly milked this cow dry and its now the fall of a dead, predictable and boring series. Activision really should have just released map packs instead of annual game releases as there is no clear difference between Modern Warfare, Black Ops or Ghosts apart from the kill streak system. This game is a massive flop and does not warrant the €70 price tag on it. 3/10… Expand

Dec 20, 2013One month in with this game and I'm tired of it. This is obviously a beta test as developers are trying to figure out how to best configure their development process for the new consoles. This is arguably the worst COD game in the series. There are no signs of life...no signs of thought or a sense of vision to really get players excited about the future on the franchise. It's a shame that Activision is so hell bent on releasing this title every year. Black Ops 2 received plenty of negative reviews. Ghosts might have just killed off the series! A lack of imagination, zero creativity, awkward map design, and an incredibly cumbersome perk/prestige system have ruined this title for me. The multiplayer lobbies for this game are pratically empty for a reason...this time, it really sucks!… Expand
Dec 26, 2013This game is really not at the level it should be nowdays.
No innovations at all,even the graphic is still the same as the old gen.
And at least it's not acceptable in 2013 have a war game where you can easily hide behind a chair or a piece of wood an be safe against automatic war rifles.
The enemies doesn't even got an AI and the just aim at you 99% of the time without considerating all you allies.They also know every time where you are even afer you hide and aggirate them.
No phisics at all,just scripteed dead ragdoll movements and even if you continue shooting corpse with an rpg they don't change their movements.
No reactions shooting various part of body,just headshots.We got different body points like legs,arms,weapon and chest in early 2000's with Soldier of fortune..what a shame.
All the events in game are scripted and the main campaign last less than 5hrs.
Only positive mention could be the Invasion mode similar to zombies from other COD.… Expand
Jan 3, 2014Fore-note: Giving this game a 10 is like saying the earth is flat. Giving this game a 10 based on 'trolls' is pathetic. The 3.8 score is very accurate compared to the ridiculous 79 Metascore. Blunt Version: This game fails on ALL levels besides fish, and the Extinction mode (aka Zombies with Aliens.) The storage required game takes around 50 Gigs!!! Which OBVIOUSLY aren't used up by HD textures because those are bloody crap!
-->Don't buy this as it is broken, poor quality, and does not deserve your money.
The ONLY REDEEMING factor is that it is not the PC version, WHICH LAGS IN THE MENU! (ON A GTX TITAN!!)
-This game is basically Righteous Slaughter from GTA
STICK TO BO2! WHICH AT LEAST TRIED!
The 'new' 19 year old quake based engine is hardly the next-gen experience.
This game's are sub-par for a next-gen, and could be found in the original Crysis, it's basically a sharper CoD 4 MW.
With a 50GB install, CoD Ghost left me wondering what all that storage was being used for..
I have yet to find out as the textures aren't any where close being a culprit, the only other option is OP-underused-overhyped-killer-mecha-dog, Riley and his side kicks the dynamic-super-AI-fish. Seriously though, 50?
-It also can't be the sounds, which are the same recycled pea shooter sounds from CoD4 MW2 3
Don't expect a work of art,actually expect the complete opposite.
In, CoD Ghost you play as a burly white dude along side his burly white dude brother and army, under the command of his burly white father. (ALL of whom are Flat characters.) Serious there was like 3 minorities, only 1 of whom was a 'Ghost'. But lets talk about them, the Ghosts. The Ghosts where meant to be stealthy super burly white dudes with the budget of a specs op team.
HOWEVER! The game insists on being just like the previous. As you run about amok shooting from the hip like a chicken with its head cut off next to a tank, all the while doing crazy ass ****
Its like they go out of their way to make it bad!
What I'm trying to say is that the Single Player experience is utter TRASH and has some many holes swish cheese is more consistent.
-The multiplayer is basically around 16 players stuffed in a closet with mini-guns. ****
Dynamic maps? Yeah no.
Kill Streaks? NOW WITH DOG!
Guns? sure! how does fictional guns based off of real life weapons but are renamed to save cash (like they needed to!)
Frame Rate? As consistent as a completely wasted guy doing the 'walk the line' test.
Maps? Same maps with a different look. (Not lying, some maps have the exact same general placement of major objects.
The only bright point of the game.
-Fresh new take on Zombies.
-Best player with friend.
-Not worth a full title purchase though.
All in all, I'd recommend waiting to see how BF4 plays out and consider that over this piece of utter scum.… Expand
Feb 28, 2014Ugh, where to start. If you've played a CoD game recently, this will not amaze you, and likely won't even hold your attention. It's exactly like the last 2 IW CoDs, but somehow the story is even worse. I've experienced a couple of slowdowns as well, particularly in the fake Petco Park in San Diego.
Multiplayer is the same old CoD. I'm so very tired of being forced to use guns I don't know the name of because a good old "M4" is played out. There's a reason every game has the AK, M4, and MP5. Because they're the best. It'd be like a racing game leaving out an M3, Porsche 911, and Ferrari 458, because they're in every other racing game.
Add to that inexplicably sped up multiplayer genres like Cranked and Blitz, and all I can think is...who the hell plays a CoD game and says, "man, if Multiplayer was just a little bit faster?!?"
This game was made for the lowest common denominator, and I find it to not even be worth the $30 I paid for it used.… Expand
Feb 23, 2014This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. WORST ONE YET! STUPID squad stuff wtf is wrong with you guys that you think this would be better than working up one guy with multiple load outs?! please stop trying to reinvent the wheel every time you do it just gets worse. WHY do you feel it necessary to screw up a good game franchise with this pile of steaming dog poo. You just killed the game, thanks IW. Ill wait for Treyarch's version to come out hopefully they read these things more than you do.… Expand
Feb 26, 2014This was my least favorite installment of the COD franchise. I was disappointed to find out after purchasing the game, that the multiplayer is heavily geared toward snipers and long ranged weapons. Most maps feel as though they are designed for that very reason.
It also seems that in each installment, the gap between good and weak players decreases. Probably due to the countless nerfs and game balancing. The kill streaks are just plain dumb and even the campaign was short and forgettable. I think I'll stick to Black Ops 2 until Treyarch makes another game.… Expand
Dec 13, 2013I have been extremely excited to play the new COD Ghosts, but was quickly disappointed. I primarily play COD for multiplayer (mp), but this game's mp is horrible. They introduce new sights, new equipment, new class of guns, etc, which ultimately are all useless. The same old items from previous games are the same necessary items you will use in this game. There is a whole new concept to creating classes and unlocking equipment, which is extremely agitating. You have to earn points and then buy equipment, killstreaks, extra classes, clothing, squads, etc. You can also complete operations to earn patches, clothing, etc, which is a waste of time because none of it is worth wasting your time over. The mp maps are some of the worst ever. yes they are attractive, but all of the maps present the ability for you to be killed at any point from almost anywhere. I'm not saying i'm the best player ever, but I have kept a positive KDR in all prior games. Unless your are camping, your average life is under 20 seconds because the maps are too wide open. The campaign is short and has nothing new, although some of the graphics are amazing. The new extinction game type is entertaining. Overall, I would stick to Black Ops 2 or MW3 if they had them XB1 and pass on this game. I cant wait for another decent game to come out so I can leave this game behind.… Expand
Jan 3, 2014Multiplayer is the worst yet. The spawns are the worst in any game i've played, numerous times i'm spawned IN FRONT of an enemy. Single player is alright, the process of turning in your last gen copy for the new one (with a $10 additional cost) was overcomplicated as if they wanted everyone to say to themselves "spending another $60 would just be so much easier" and you had a very short timeframe to trade it in.… Expand
Feb 8, 2014It is not enough that you cough up $500 for the system with only one remote but you also purchase this game only to find that you are also expected to purchase the Xbox Live if you ever expect to "Rank UP". I agree that this is not much different from the rest, so it is not living up to the hype. AT LEAST before you could play local without being pressured to purchase something you do not want to use. I have no intention of gaming with others online. .
Nothing more aggravating than companies already making fortunes bullying customers into purchasing products they do not want or need.… Expand
Feb 12, 2014call of duty. should have died after World at war this game is the same thing over and over again. Over all it is lame as **** people spend how much on this game. Mean while nothing has changed well they went into the future about a thousand years, and wait thats all thats changed the graphics are still the same the guns, knives, oh WAIT you can change your facial features HOLY **** **** this stupid ass game and the simple minded critics. if you want a FPS thats worth every penny move to MOHW yea people think it sucks because critics rated it so bad. Well in fact look how good they rated this ****ty game COD F&%K COD.
spend what is now about 15 dollars and try MOHW multiplayer yes the single player isn't that great while its still better than Call of duty. well hope to see yall on MOHW if so hit me up
Feb 14, 2014This game is the very best bad game what i see. The multiplayer is very bad, only wants premiums, pass, dlcs, etc,... with pesim graphics.
The history mode, look better, but, its not a nextgen representative.
My note is 0, this game isnt valid for rent.
Feb 15, 2014BF4 graphics are much better, in COD Ghosts you can get any weapon or perk or equipment you want just by spending coins. Unlock best weapons almost instantly, same with perks. Then I don't feel like playing it when there is nothing better to unlock. Trade it in for Bf4, unless you like to just run and gun in a arcade shooter that takes no skill or teamwork. Campaign is a copy of the past 3 COD games just with different characters. Same old storyline… Expand
Feb 19, 2014Horrible Game, just horrid. Been playing CoD games since MW2 this one is even worse that Black OPS 2. Horrible Score Streaks, very buggy even after 5 months span glitch still exists. Never again I'm buying any season passes they are overpriced and useless. No features like make your on tag, no anti air launchers opened in the options. Huge Shame. I have this game 1 since it might be worth buying if its $10 in late late future. Nothing original, nothing new, they just keep taking features away each year. This game will want to make you punch pony's it that horrid. Also the new prestige system is plain **** I'm going to scream in my pillow now.
Activision is becoming the new EA. Can't even make this game 1080p.… Expand
Feb 28, 2014All you have to say is cod and everyone knows how the game play is, don't matter which cod it is. This cod is the same as the old cod and the same as the old old cod. We need something new in our lives. SPOILER ALERT!!! Next cod will be the same as this one!
Mar 4, 2014This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. One of the worst Call of Duty's ever made! Single player has the most stupid, generic, and predictable story line ever. For example, in the end you shoot Rorke with a 44 magnum in the chest and flood a train that fell in the water. You and your brother (whoever their names are, these characters are so unmemorable) swim to the shore and everything seems fine; then out of the blue Rorke comes out, breaks your arm, and locks you in a cage in the end cut scene (hinting at a sequel). A step backwards from the innovation of Black Ops 2. The multiplayer is not much better than the single player. **** maps that are larger than in any other Call of Duty. Super fast killing weapons that encourage camping along with the most **** annoying lethal called the IED. The action is extremely boring on most maps except Strike Zone and Free Fall. They completely ruined Scrapyard (called Ignition in this game) when they launched DLC, because of all the campers and other problems this game has compared with MW2. Extinction was a good idea, but fell short after DLC came out. Point of Contact was a bit fun, but could become repetitive. DLC was extremely disappointing. Nightfall was so damn difficult that it was unplayable. The only thing Infinity Ward did right was perk balance. That was it! Scorestreaks are so weak that it is ridiculous, except for the guard dog and the juggernaut maniac. I would have preferred survival from MW3 versus squads in this game. I barely play it. I got bored of this game in less than 2 months. This entire game is a complete pile of **** and can't believe I wasted $120 on this. If you have not bought this game already, do yourself a favor and get a better game like Titanfall instead. DO NOT BUY THIS GAME!… Expand
Mar 13, 2014I was a huge COD fan on the 360 but this game is just plain not fun. Multiplayer maps are a joke - poorly designed and too small. Single player is boring. There sadly isn't much to like about this game, here's hoping for a better experience with the next COD.
Mar 14, 2014A Activision e a IW simplesmente fizeram qualquer merda e mandaram para os pc gamers, jogo pesado, totalmente mal optimizado, gráficos do mw2, texturas terríveis para os requisitos do jogo, esse jogo que dizia ter uma engine nova, melhorada, muito boa, na verdade, foi só marketing, vai tomar no ¬¬ IW, ate trocarem de engine e fizerem uma coisa decente, eu não compro, nem pirata eu pego.
Nov 13, 2013Infinity Ward has lost capacity, it's out of ideas. Call of Duty: Ghosts is the same blast of scripts in single-player and the conventional formula in multiplayer. That's all. Fun and addictive as always, this game is silent in your Call of Duty collection, it leaves no trace.
Nov 12, 2013Call 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.
