The single player story should be top notch then

Let's hope! MW2 was the last one I played through, it had a great campaign. The ones after that, not so much for me personally... Campaign is the only reason I'd play CoD, as I find the multiplayer quite unimpressive.

I had no idea who this guy was but after looking at his IMBD page. I was not impressed.

@ Snookies

You obviously haven't played the black ops game. Their stories are really good. Black ops 2 bad ending was really awesome.

@-Mika-

Not impressed here either... I mean, he's not that bad of a writer, but definetely not notable. Syriana is as boring as it gets. He's best works are Rules Of Engagement and Traffic, but he actually had only done the screenplay, not wrote 'em. Everything else is meh...

@bishop i dunno, never underestimate someones talent (unless they have a very long track record with mediocre work) this could be his big break if the story is good (if not then oh well).

I wouldn't be too sure about that. The thing you have to remember about stories for a series like this are almost certainly designed with the set-pieces, locations, and stuff first in mind and then filling them in with context (which will be his job). I'm not 100% sure that's how it's always worked for CoD, but I recall that's how ND operated with Uncharted so I'm figuring something similar here.

The most I can see him doing is making the dialogue decent. The only certain end result of this is really just going to be some more fluff for reviewers to mention WHY the story must supposedly be top notch now when it's released. That could just be me showing my cynical side, but I'm still trying to get over several sites idolizing Alex Garland's input for Enslaved.

Naw man COD stories are so deep and innovative.

LMFAO, /S at it's best!

All this teasing, come on with the game so I can distant myself from N4G.

I'll be honest: When has plot actually effected ANYTHING in a Call of Duty game? All you do is walk to point A, shoot 30 of character B, defend point C, and so on. At best the plot just allows for really neat set pieces and environments. :\

coolbeans1409d ago

I contend there's a few entries that show signs of creativity (to varying degrees). I'll be the first to admit Black Ops' psychological premise is stealing from Fight Club (or whatever came before it), but standing by its ludicrous convictions the whole way through supplied some good twists.

very interesting development!
