Call of Duty: Ghosts
Top Critic Average
There's so much content on offer in Call of Duty: Ghosts that everyone will get their money's worth, and then some. Infinity Ward could quite easily have rested on their laurels, stayed in their comfort zone to release Modern Warfare 4 this year with little negative critical reception. Instead, they've done something bold with the franchise they gave life to, and as a result have created the best Call of Duty game since Modern Warfare 2. Big, brash and absolutely stunning.
With four very distinct modes – each essentially it's own deep and polished game – Ghosts delivers serious value for military FPS fans
Call of Duty: Ghosts' robust multiplayer suite and refreshingly varied campaign make it one of the best in the series.
Should you buy it? Absolutely. Call of Duty remains a fun game to play and for those that are looking for a multiplayer title with legs, Ghosts will certainly sit atop the pile for the next 12 months.
Ghosts doesn't leverage the PS4 beyond providing a more visually immersive experience, it stands as a more than capable bridge for the franchise. While the campaign is relatively short at eight hours and at times feels very derivative, the high points really shine and the multiplayer experience continues to set the bar for the genre.
Although it follows the same formula, 'Call of Duty: Ghosts' offers a few refreshing changes.
If you're a Wii U owner looking for a great first-person shooter that's comparable to the current generation, then rejoice in knowing that Activision has provided just that experience for you.
Recommended for anyone who love first person shooters and anyone looking to play with competitive gamers.
Call of Duty: Ghosts is a great new addition to the franchise but it is definitely showing its age now. Far too many invisible walls and glitches in the single player campaign show a lack of due care and attention which I didn't expect from Infinity Ward. The multiplayer experience more than makes up for it though.
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.
