Critic Reviews for Call of Duty: Ghosts

The campaign is exciting but only passively entertaining, and the multiplayer tweaks the knobs of established Call of Duty games to little effect.

Ghosts, in and of itself, is a fine game. It ticks all the boxes and then blows the boxes up in glorious 1080p resolution (on PS4 at least). Those who only ever play COD will be more than happy with it, but those who have grown weary of the series will see more of their ambivalence justified this time around. Infinity Ward had a chance here to throw down the gauntlet for the next hardware generation, to set the new standard, to show that this hugely popular, much derided behemoth can dance to a different tune. It's chosen to play a Greatest Hits package instead.

8.8 / 10.0

Call of Duty: Ghosts' robust multiplayer suite and refreshingly varied campaign make it one of the best in the series.

There is innovation here and even if it's not always in exactly the areas you'd wish it's enough to ensure that Call Of Duty's status as the world's favourite FPS is still largely deserved.

Ghosts is a cookie cutter game with a little touch of alien frosting on top. However, the well-designed multiplayer maps, soldier customization, and polished gameplay is more than enough to sink your teeth into.

Ghosts is polished and fun, but fails to push the series forward in any major ways

With an outstanding new co-op mode and a campaign fueled by fierce combat, Call of Duty: Ghosts is another great addition to the blockbuster shooter franchise.

The single player attempts to be bombastic, but will leave you feeling cold. The multiplayer is signature COD, but we're waiting until public servers are up to make a judgement.
