    Review from a competitive COD player since 2003..

    Single player: The story is one of the best in the series, and the series has been known for a cinematic single player campaign of "holy s*!t" moments. However, Treyarch tries a little too hard with the cinematics whi... Read Full Review

    The coming-of-age of Call Of Duty campaigns.
