As what's left of the nation's Special Operations forces, a mysterious group known only as "Ghosts" leads the fight back against a newly emerged, technologically-superior global power. The new Perks system has more perks than were previously available. Every perk has a value from 1 to 5, and you have 8 points to allocate. So for example, choose 4 perks each valued at 2 points a piece, or even 8 perks, each valued at 1. You could also choose to get rid of your secondary weapon and get up to 11 perks. Expand

    If you’re a Wii U owner looking for a great first-person shooter that’s comparable to the current generation, then rejoice in knowing that Activision has provided just that experience for you.
  2. The multiplayer pillar is wobbly, but a lightness of touch elsewhere keeps the game steady. Not a stellar year for Call of Duty, but solid enough. [Jan 2014, p.78]

    Call of Duty: Ghosts is an alright game, but it doesn't push the boundaries as much other entries in the franchise.

    The new multiplayer modes are exciting, but they are bogged down by the low quality maps. If you just need a game to scratch your FPS itch, Ghosts will tide you over till another Call of Duty comes out, but if you are looking for a shooter that is surprising and profound, you are better off passing on Ghosts.

    The campaign is a shallow Frankengame, hollow-hearted and unsure of its footing as it tries to keep up with Call of Duty's own self-escalation of incredulous scenarios, with ludicrously stupid set pieces and a story built around relationships that nobody will care about come the end of the credits.

    Call of Duty: Ghosts is everything that Call of Duty titles have been in the past: fast-paced action and the usual competitive multiplayer with a few twists thrown in.

    Guys, it's not THAT bad.

    Story/Concept: South America has invaded the U.S. by hijacking their orbital missile weapon. So it's up to the Ghosts (which are a team of soldier that use sneaky Geurilla tactics) to save the world! The campaign is fun, but far from perfect. One of the main selling points was the dog, but he's there for like 3 or 4 levels max. There's a helicopter segment (which I didn't like), There's a level set in a space station (which was awesome), and there's a level where you use a robot sniper (which I liked, but when did we set one up? Was another Ghost setting it up while the others were shooting everyone up, real "stealthy" by the way)

    Graphics/Design: The game is alright to look at. However, there are some low-res textures and pop-in.

    Sound: I like that they got Hollywood actors to play a couple of roles. Brandon Routh and Stephen Lang thought did a good job.

    Gameplay: The same old Call of Duty, walking along a map, shooting people in the face, occassional set piece moments. I don't hate it, but I would like something new.

    Multiplayer/Extras: The multiplayer has tons of customization options, and is my favorite multiplayer in the series by far. However , I can't play it until I install the DLC, and it won't even let me do that, WTF?

    Verdict: It's not the best in the series to me (that's Black Ops II), but it's at least an enjoyable experience. I'm planning on getting on the PS4 once I get the system, it least it'll let me play the multiplayer!

CoD Ghosts isn't the best game I've ever played, but it's certainly enjoyable. And the Wii U version is the only one which provides motion support, and of course the gamepad can be used as well (as can the Pro Controller)> Decent game, certainly worth consideration. Expand
