So you all know I'm a fan of COD, but even a guy like me who plays it religiously was also getting a bit tired of the same things over and over.
Ghosts released and the following things happened:
- The SP is pretty fun. Nothing special but fun like a Michael Bay film.
- The MP (where I play most), had optimization issues and I was disappointed. They have released a patch which fixes it now but still, the MP feels a lot different from Blops2. It's no more run-n-gun (some maps are), but more tactical cover based shooting now. It almost feels like they went BF style, lol.
After playing for a while I was at the point that I felt I shouldn't have paid for this game, but then I discovered SQUADS.
Basically, it works sort of like an RPG.
You unlock different soldiers, you level them up, give them classes and loadouts each, and then go online and play against another human with their squad.
Sounds dumb on paper but once you get into it it's actually great fun, and it's awesome to see your squad (the one you created, fine tuned and improved) go onto the battleground and play as you trained them (ie, if one soldier's loadout is sniper rifle etc, he will play as a sniper).
So for those a bit burned out on COD and have been asking for something different, give this a go, it's actually a lot better than it sounds.
I haven't even tried Extinction and Clan vs Clan either.
