The Highs and Lows of Call of Duty: Ghosts’ Single Player

Dealspwn writes: Infinity Ward’s latest shooter, Call of Duty: Ghosts, hit the shelves this week and has again proved a big success, although not to the same degree as previous titles. There’s been a drop in sales, albeit one which could be explained by players waiting for next-gen versions later this month. The critical reception has taken a hit too though as the series dips into the ‘dreaded’ yellow zone on Metacritic with a current average of 75 instead of the usual 80-90 range. Our very own Mr. Lester gave the game a 6/10 rating.

Much of the criticism has been aimed at the game’s single player element, which is surprising, given that Infinity Ward should know what they’re doing by now. Have they become lazy? Are we expecting too much? Have our tastes changed? Or do we just want to get on with the multiplayer?

Well, today let’s tackle the single player side of Ghosts, by looking at what’s strong and what’s wrong with it.

There was highs in the single player.

More like single players were 'high' to play the campaign thinking that it is a new MP mode.

lows: horribly written story, two dimensional characters that all act the same, one mission objective through different scenes (pop n shoot), literally copy/pasted scenes from past call of duty games, no color....brown as far as the eye can see.

high: 90 minutes after starting you we're finally done, credits roll

Wow all these people who havent played the game, and still talk poop lol
I have hated the last 2 COD single player modes.

Ghost has actually been very good.
The story of the Ghost and the brothers looking for Rorke has been awesome.
Very surprised how Ghost has turned out.

from an honest gamer. not someone looking for thumbs ups .

Not really been particularly enamoured of any SP mode since MW2.

The series has been in a nosedive since COD4.

I agree with you, i don't like the mp that much on this one though because it has a bunch of problems imo (huge maps, guns kill very quickly, rampant camping, annoying how everything is locked behind squad points, weak assault streaks, REALLY messed up spawns), overall lacking mp.
But the singleplayer has been great so far (i'm maybe halfway through the story), a lil better than mw3's sp.
