A solid classic.

Minato78 | Dec. 28, 2013 | Review of Call of Duty: Ghosts

A user-friendly interface, mixed with original and numerous maps, gamemodes, weapons, and what not, is the surefire way to achieve millions of sales. And Ghosts is but another result of that formula. I think of this formula as an island, and CoD only explored the coast. But soon, the people will want to see a bigger chunk of the island, and if CoD fails, then the franchise will flinch. Ghosts is still in the "coast" of the island, but that doesn't mean it shouldn't get your attention. Just like an island, the coast isn't one single point, but a large territory. So even in the coast, there could be new, amazing things to be found. Ghosts still has the same formula, but with a different approach. It's more like an "upgrade" of MW3 or BO2. It has the best of 2 companies, Treyarch and Infinity Ward, mixed in one classic and solid game. It's true a bit of innovation wouldn't hurt, but until all the "coast" has been explored, I'll keep playing Ghosts, or any coming CoD. The formula still has potential for more, so unless you dumped hours upon hours of playing into other CoDs, and are desperate for some innovation, you won't find it. If you can overlook the lack of that innovation, then by all means this is game is worth it. As the title says, it's a solid and classic experience, and in my book, that is an enjoyable one.
