I got Call Of Duty Ghosts for the 360, and I have to say as a huge fan of the series this one is a major letdown. Granted it is still a good game, but it has way too many annoying problems that detract from the fun. Multiplayer only(I rarely play campaign on any COD game) I have spent quite a few hours on it, and this is my take:
-I hate the "look" of the game. Graphics are fine, bu the layout from the minimap, to loadout weapons chart, to character callsign, is just bland. It's obvious the developers are going for a more realistic "BATTLEFIELD" look. Newsflash-This is COD You already have your fans. Let the people that love Battlefield play that series of games, because you sure aren't making any new fans with this tactic.
-The Kill/Death ratio. Seriously every Treyarch COD I play I'm always fairly decent to really good(Average match 19 kills/6 deaths) So Infinity ward has upped the stakes with this one. My best game in a bout 7 hours of Team deathmatch, and free for all was 8 kills 3 deaths( because I just gave up and camped in frustration) average per game 11 kills 16 deaths.....seriously WTF?
-The leveling up is cumbersome and horrible.
-The killstrreaks, weapons choices, are mostly terrible. While the perks options are confusing, and stupid.
-The maps are 50/50. I love half and hate half. Most are way too large, and clunky. This is one area that Treyarch always excels at. Infinity Ward maps have never been great, but wow, most of these are just clunky, and large.
-"Squad" idea is horrible, and should never been implemented.
I'm giving this one a few more hours, but seriously thinking of selling it soon. What a sad day. From now on Treyarch COD only!
