Well, to be fair, the majority of COD is not single player. This interview was manly about the campaign, which not as many people are interested in.

I'll starting making my guesses when we've had official multiplayer and zombie announcements, and form my opinion a month or two after release when the initial excitement's worn off and everyone's exploiting the worst stuff

COD 4 campaign was unbelievably great!
because it was a huge change compared to the older cod games, but now they are clinging to "cod 4 style" with the newer campaigns and you can see it obviously overdone and doesnt have the same "shock and awe" effect from cod 4.

As much as I appreciate the timeline shift for the series, I still don't understand why a new setting should be considered a huge change in the eyes of gamers. The same cinematic spin has been embedded into the series since CoD1. What's really the big difference between the slow-mo, heavy-breathing moment with a WWII plane flying overhead and a slow-mo, heavy-breathing moment with a dozen blackhawks in the scene?

If a change in scenery is all most of us need to have a "shock and awe" effect then doesn't that just make our community shallow?

Where have I heard something like this before

Oh yeah...every year after the first Modern Warfare released

The first cod was on the pc only and was completely using the quake3 engine. still uses some of it today.

It's a good fun game, think people take it and other shooters too seriously, as long as your having fun. it's a win.

It was confirmed before MW3 even released that there is absolutely no Quake Engine coding in newer COD games. Hasn't been for a while now, its something that angry COD haters try and run into the ground.

You still see the licensing agreement to ID when the game loads.

"Black Ops II is the Best Call of Duty Since the First Modern Warfare"

That is a big statement, Modern Warfare was awesome

Even bigger weighing the fact that all games since then have blown balls compared to it in single player, and ESPECIALLY in multiplayer.
