    By far the worst Multi-Player of the COD Series

    Posted
    TheHire

    The basis of my review is in comparison to the MW series. As a dedicated fan to that multi-player, I used that series as a benchmark in comparison to Ghosts. What I was hoping that IW working with a new slate, would come up with something new and fresh for the series. This is how I felt after less than a week of playing both the campaign and multi-player. GOOD I'll start with what I do like about the game, which isn't much. On the PS4, the graphics do look sharp. I can't make comparisons to how it looks on PS3 or 360. But from what I've seen, I do think it's a good looking game. As far as next generation console graphics, I can't make a comparison to other games just yet. But I feel the overall look of the game is really great. The campaign isn't what I imagined, far from it actually. Although different, it was new and enjoyable. If you think the storyline for MW was far-fetched, Ghosts takes outrageousness to a whole other level. Like all other COD campaigns, this one was of course short and sweet. It's like the food or candy that you love to eat, but you're not wowed by it anymore. I do love the new weapons, and small quirks (the ability to jump above stacked platforms and the run and slide) which of course you'll be able to do in multi-player as well. Asides from these highlights, there's not much else about the game to revere. BAD I can't begin to tell you how much the feel of the gameplay of this installment feels in comparison to MW1, 2, and 3. There's little nuances that makes it feel something familiar and completely odd and new at the same time. I'm not just talking about the new weapon mods, killstreaks, perks, etc. Drawing your weapon to reaction time of shooting your enemy first feels way off compared to MW. To me it's night and day. I don't enjoy the pace of the game this way and it makes it so frustrating to play. The layout of the maps also are a big negative. Depending on which map you play, some more than others, players/teams can benefit from taking a stance in a certain area to pin-down the other team. (Mostly by snipers and other campers lurking in small confined areas that are difficult to take on unless you have a group of people that go with you in force). In theory, these maps are strategic for clan type play which in that case, would be ideal. But c'mon, 90% of the people who play COD, don't play in organized teams/clans. IW, should realize that and stop making maps with so many blindspots where people can camp all day. There are many other things I could talk about this game, but I'll say this last as my biggest peeve. The parity of low-ranking players versus highly ranked player in regards to killstreaks and mods is the largest disparity I've ever seen in the COD series. If you're high up your ranking and unlocked almost anything and everything, you have a supreme advantage against low-level players. While I understand that these same players also had to go through the same rigors, it makes it incredibly unpleasant to be killed 10 different ways in a game. It's become overkill to the point of it being comedic. I really miss the days of MW1 and the simple killstreak perks. CONCLUSION I've had this game for less than a week, and I've decided to trade it in for something else (not BF4). I have MW1-3 and Black Ops 1 and have never felt any animosity towards those titles in regards to multi-player. This will most likely be my final COD purchase ever. They had a great run as the front-runner of console FPS, but like many things in life, good things come to an end. And for COD, there time has come and gone.

    The game looks great but gameplay...

    The game visually looks great without a doubt and the new maps aren't to bad. Also there are elements of multiplayer like being able to slide and the more dynamic environment is pretty fun. The option to customize the character isn't to bad if you can figure out how to work it. After that its pretty much downhill. First off there are so many fun game modes that were taken out like CTF, demolition, and all the party games like gun game are out. The new prestige system is kinda ridiculolus to, who really wants to Prestige 100 times? Also a lot of items are gone or changed like the portable radar, semtex, and bouncing betty. Lets not forget that it is much easier for people to camp even though a lot of these things are gone. Strike packages have also shrunk which is annoying especially specialist but thats due to the game having 30 perks. Really are 30 perks necessary? I don't know about anyone else but I think that Infinity Ward should've made something similar to MW3. Also MOABs are called KEM strikes now and any camper can get them by picking up a field order that just requires you to get 1 melee kill or a headshot or 3 non killstreak kills or something else which leads to them getting a care package that more often than not contains a KEM strike. This game is a huge letdown in terms of gameplay. Why Infinity Ward messed up what it was doing right and add more stuff that makes the game worse is a mystery to me. If you are thinking about buying a first person shooter for your new console I recommend Battlefield 4 which is very similar to its older games and has new additions that make it extremely fun and it is just as visually appealing as Call of Duty: Ghosts.

    Far below Black Ops 2

    Been playing the COD series for a very long time. Really enjoyed it. This is the first time I can remember a COD game I don't really like. There are positives to this game. I enjoyed the campaign mode. The space and underwater scenes are especially well done. Graphics are really good. However, there are far too many negatives in my opinion and all center around multiplayer mode. Enough so that I still find myself playing PS3 Black Ops 2 rather than PS4 Ghosts. Here's what I don't like...it favors the sniper. All initial maps are big maps that if you are good at sniping you will excel. If you run around like a bat out of hell, like me, you get picked off by the snipers. The first DLC pack provides a more diverse map set, so that is better. Next, I'm not very good, and for some reason I always get placed in games with people that have K/D rations of 2.5 or better...and I get killed. Would be great if Sony would match me up with some people I could be competitive with. Then there's the little things: loved playing demolition (not offered in ghosts) and no notification you actually killed someone. I do like the change in hardcore matches where friendly fire immediately reverts to damage on yourself. No more killing teammates for care packages (although that's another change where you can only get a care package by completing field orders, it's no longer a kill streak). Overall the worst of the CODs to date.

    Broken multiplayer

    Posted
    badradio

    Campaign is the usual story of saving the world. Difficulty is turned down this time. The real issue is the broken MP. Who did the level design?!?! Comparing good mp maps in COD 4 vs.Ghosts is sad. The devs for Ghosts seems to incorporate higher areas to go and also increase the size of the maps, along with a utterly broken and infuriating respawn system that is still broken from MW3. Since the levels are bigger and more places to hide from higher areas, players just camp. It's pathetic. In the original Modern warfare, there were also areas elevated, but only here and there. Clear left and right areas. Now, like in the freefall map (which has a horrid color palette), you spawn and immediately die because you are in wide open areas. The developers need to go back and see what really made the first modern warfare game so fun. What a disappointment. Selling this game.

    So what is there to say about cod that has not been said before. Well ghosts is a new chapter in Cod and it tries to build something out of the box that is fresh and exciting the problem is it feels more of the same. Extinction is what I wish Alien Col Marine could have captured tense, fun, hard and as a stand alone it would be worth 20.00 alone. The multiplayer is your standard with some tweets. The problem comes into with the story being Blaw. I really enjoyed black ops and cod 4 but ghost just did not stand out as something I must have. If you have not played a Call of Duty I would say wait until next year when Black ops 3 comes out. If you want an arcade style shooter Killzone or Blacklight are much better. ghost will give a couple of hours of enjoyment but I think it will be forgotten by summer so many better games coming.

    Lacking the Call

    Been into this series since Modern Warfare and though not much change over the years this was a bad move. Bigger maps were a good idea but keeping the player size made it hide an seek no matter the game mode except crank. Supposedly didn't add players for spawning purposes but I seem to frequently spawn by other teams right when someone is shooting at a squad mate. Story was bland and like usual really has no replay value except gamer score. Maybe they can add a more open world or with the map packs give extra parts to the story or characters. I won't likely be getting another CoD for a year or three since they added a third company to the mix. Unless of course my friends hop on and approve. No one likes this game.

    Ghost It...

    Disappointed!! I liked Black OpsII. For the most part in Black OpsII, they had fixed the spawn kills. Granted you cannot stop the campers, but there were less places to just sit and snip. Ghosts (multiplayer) is a game for campers... period! The maps are bigger, but they are wide open for people to camp and snip all day long. Spawn... die, spawn die.. spawn die.. all over again. Extinctions and Squads are the best part of the game. So... the graphics are good, there are not too many limitations as to where you can go on the map (ie.. you can climb, get under, get over pretty much everything), and you have lots of perks to choose from. I am back to playing Black Ops II... very disappointing!

    Slightly Below Typical COD Experience

    This is a pretty typical COD experience. If you love first person shooter games then it is worth the buy, especially since it has been out for a while and is half the price of any other COD game out right now. Since it is not the Black Ops series, you do not get zombies, but you do get extinction which is pretty similar but with aliens instead of zombies. The online maps are pretty good and fun. The only other thing I wish they would have included in this game is local coop. I have had some fun with this game, but I'm planning on getting Black Ops 3 instead which should be a much better experience.

    The UI tries way too hard not to be like a CoD game to the point that the only alternative is to rip off Battlefield 4, right down to the color scheme of orange and blue for opponents and allies. It pretty much rewards all of the worst playing habits: quick scoping and camping. The controls feel stiff and sluggish. It's almost like playing a generic version of Call of Duty. Someday, the developers might realize that all people are really looking for is an updated version of Modern Warfare. Activision insults us by forcing these horrible maps on us with the release and then tries to sell us the 'good' maps in a DLC.

    i am a COD fan forever but this game just does not do it for me. I think the art is terrific but the game not so much. I like the story mode a lot as i did with all the COD franchise games but lets be honest this franchise is based solely on its online game play and they missed on this one. the maps looks great but play terrible. great game for the slow paced camper who likes to sit and wait for any action to happen.

    Well I picked this up for ps4 I really enjoyed that I could jump right into the game right away. Cons game seems really laggy and just akward. I really wish they would just take some time and make a great game instead of pushing out sub par games every single year. I also picked up bf4 and I definitely enjoy that game much more. Ghost is the only game to drop price to 29.99 in less than 6 months. Thats a sign that alot people hate this game.

    Game runs smoothly. Short campaign. Multiplayer runs well in my experience. But, no real change in gameplay with the franchise. For a more rounded and interesting gameplay have moved on to Battlefield. I hope the franchise turns things around. I've always been a COD fan and look forward to a better and more improved installment.

    I am a Call of Duty fan but I am not a fan boy. This should have been called COD 3.5 . Game play is the same, load outs are the same, single player campaign is the same, and the multiplayer is the same. While the Battlefield franchise has environments that can be destroyed and vehicles, COD is still the same.

    This was a rather uninspired iteration with the US once again being overrun. The Space segments were short and lacking in substance. The Dog portions were awesome but brief. Other than that it offers a few tricks, mostly in multiplayer, to keep you satiated.

    Not sure if it's the game's fault, but there are so many campers that the game is just not fun. There are a few fun maps, but most are too big and you end up getting shot in the back 2 out of every 3 deaths. Would not recommend

    This game is way past its prime, I'm sure it was awesome when the game was popular. A lot of lag problems, mic problems (caused because of this game), and other things like getting booted in the middle of a match. Was cool for PS3, not for ps4.

    Call of Duty Ghosts was a fun single player experience, but the multiplayer is was a huge disappointment for me. The maps in multiplayer are too large and lead to excessive snipping. I sold the game a few weeks after purchasing.

    The online on this game is so corrupted as with every spawn youre automatically targeted and shot at point. It isnt fun and regret it much. The story backs it up but the game isnt good online. No more updates.

    This is an excellent game to use as a coaster, or an extra dvd case. I actually stored my smurfs bluray collection just because the case is blue. Other than that not too much use of this game.
