    *Call of Duty gets 7/10′s, Activision cancels entire franchise*

    Kidding though! I don’t have a massive hate boner for the franchise despite leaving it behind 3 years ago, but I’m glad that the hype train for it is FINALLY starting to die down to some degree. Between these scores and GTA V setting the record for most money ever made in a week for an entertainment product, I can actually see some healthy quality going into the next release. Or I sincerely hope that’s the case.

    I know the comments here are gonna be interesting too. :P

    ooh, 7 & 8′s. About right in my opinion based on the franchise- was getting irritated every time I saw it achieve an 9 & 10. They’re obviously solid games but with mediocre single player campaigns & number of exploits they never deserved their near perfect scores.

  34. KineticCalvaria

    @30, Just be glad that the game is currently sitting on 75 for the 360 version on metacritic. Activision might finally start taking notice, personally I think this is Battlefields year, especially with the next-gen versions coming out.

    #34 1 year ago
  35. Erthazus

    Infinity Ward reusing the same assets since CoD4 every time in each game.

    this time it is not different.

    @34, It was always Battlefield’s year. I don’t care about sales. CoD can sell 50 million copies and call it a day. I don’t care.
    Just because Battlefield 4 has more score on meta does not change anything At All.

    #38 1 year ago
  39. Erthazus – this one review is 10/10

    “VERDICT: 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.”

    The irony… :D


    #39 1 year ago
  40. KineticCalvaria

    I’ve bought every CoD since CoD4 (also played CoD 2 back in the day) but I can safely say I have no desire to play Ghosts. Played BLOPS2 online for probably 10 hours in total and never went back, the glory days of CoD2 and 4 are over for me :(.

    #40 1 year ago
  41. DSB

    It’s pretty hard to get anything from those reviews. They all seem to be lukewarm, but no one seems to really nail down why.

    One says Extinction sucks, the other says it’s amazing. One says it’s bad because it’s missing amazing setpieces, the other says it’s bad because it’s only amazing setpieces.

    Jim Sterling says MW3 was somehow above mediocre, when it was quite obviously the most broken CoD in history.

    What the fuck, reviewers.

    Usually it’s easy to see who is missing the point and who’s on target, but this time the field is certifiably schizoid.

    Maybe people are just tired of CoD. I took a break through BLOPS 2 so I’m chomping at the bit.

    #41 1 year ago
  42. Erthazus

    @DSB, If you are not satisfied with them. – this one review is 10/10

    Here you go. It’s all yours.

    #42 1 year ago
  43. DSB

    @42 I’ve got literally nothing to be satisfied or unsatisfied with, I still have to wait 5 hours to play it.

    I just think it’s hard to paint a picture based on reviews that contradict eachother as much as they do.

    #43 1 year ago
  44. Fin


    Dude I don’t think you understand. My subjective opinion is that this game sucks. Your subjective opinion is different to mine, and therefore invalid. I’m rather insecure, so let me make fun of you so I can feel better about myself.


    #44 1 year ago
  45. DSB

    @44 That’s the thing though, usually 80% of games reviews read almost exactly the same. There’s no sense of personality and no hint of dissent there.

    Therefore it’s easy to look at the review that actually critisizes and sees the flaws, and say “Aha, this dude was paying attention” whereas the guy who merely glosses over stuff that should really be quite obvious, maybe isn’t the most credible one of the bunch.

    Usually I think it’s pretty easy to identify who’s who within minutes – if someone wrote a review of Rome II and didn’t mention the bugs, then obviously he either didn’t play the game, or wasn’t paying attention – but this time the fact that there actually IS a high degree of subjectivity in play just messes with my head :P

    I guess the sense I’m getting is that people are fatigued. Either that or they all picked the red pill for once.

    #45 1 year ago
  46. Fin


    Yeah I managed to read Eurogamer and half of Kotaku’s this morning – Kotaku’s was quite good, basically saying the plot made no sense.

    I think fatigue’s correct – like I’ve bought and enjoyed all the Call of Dutys up to now (though I felt MW2 was the low point), and Ghosts just doesn’t interest me. I assume this is what reviewers are feeling too.

    #46 1 year ago
  47. SplatteredHouse

    “Black Ops II was a step forward in this regard, an earnest attempt to inject fresh life into a flagging idea. By comparison, Ghosts is not only a failure to capitalize on the goodwill Black Ops II earned, it’s a disappointing step backward. ” –
    @41 Sterling also states that he’s a fan of the franchise:

    “I’ve made no secret of my love for Call of Duty, and I’ve been avidly into the series up until last year, but this time around, I barely struggled to keep my eyes open for more than a handful of matches.”
    “If one is to be diplomatic, one can say Ghosts is still better than a lot of cornball military shooter knock-offs” How the mighty have fallen.

    DSB: “I took a break through BLOPS 2 so I’m chomping at the bit.”
    I’m trying to untie the CoD Blob that has come to be, thanks to its overlapping series’ yearly release schedule, and, was Black Ops the one before or after, MW3? I haven’t played either of those, but other than that I’ve checked and followed each since CoD 4:Modern Warfare. I don’t have that level of enthusiasm for this. I wanted to see what it’s like, but other than that, and with the shape of what I am learning about Ghosts, it doesn’t look worth bothering with.

    #47 1 year ago
  48. Dave Cook

    @47 Black Ops 2 was an attempt to reinvigorate the franchise. It was much-needed after MW3. It worked, and I think anyone who says Treyarch just went for the same old-same old is just trying to antagonise people.

    I haven’t got my copy of Ghosts yet, but it does seem from the reviews that it’s a step back.

    #48 1 year ago
  49. DSB

    @47 But as I see it, he’s also writing a concept review where the idea is obviously to communicate that he feels the horse is well and truly flogged.

    Even if you like something, you can still have your fill of it.

    Which is reasonable enough, but whenever I read a review, I’m usually looking for the smoking gun that makes the game good or bad. What is really the worst or best thing anyone can say about it? This time, no one is really able to nail it down.

    Sterling is the guy who says that the setpieces are lackluster, whereas Eurogamer are saying that they’re still totally nuts. It can’t be both, so which one is it?

    Polygon are saying they’re bored, but then again they’re also saying that “air killstreaks are gay” [inaccurate paraphrasing, didnt use the word gay] which is usually what people say when they aren’t very good at CoD, and don’t get any killstreaks themselves, which will arguably make it a lot more frustrating.

    So, I mean, pick your poison. Who do you go with?

    #49 1 year ago
  50. KineticCalvaria

    @49, Actually the Eurogamer review points out that the series is running out of ideas for set pieces, pointing out one in particular that is almost entirely ripped from The Dark Knight Rises.

    So don’t think that’s very favourable…

    #50 1 year ago
  51. DSB

    @50 If ripping an airplane in half and jumping out is wrong, then I don’t want to be right.

    And if you think that’s the first time CoD has stolen a scene from a movie, you haven’t been paying attention.

    Remember that prison-that-wasn’t-Alcatraz-from-Michael-Bays-The-Rock in MW2?

    #51 1 year ago
  52. KineticCalvaria

    @51, Yeah I remember that well and a lot of the set-pieces are indeed ripped out of films, but it’s all too predictable now, we’ve had crashing planes before in CoD and it’s only becoming more stale.

    These ‘Wow’ moments are becoming more like ‘Meh’ moments.

    #52 1 year ago
  53. DSB

    @52 That brings us back to fatigue, doesn’t it?

    I mean, what are you gonna do? They’ve thrown in a space station and they seem to be dropping aircraft carriers on you while you’re underwater.

    That’s the problem. They’ve jumped sharks, they’ve jumped killer whales, they’ve jumped blue whales, and now there’s probably not a lot left to really jump.

    What would you do? I guess maybe it is time for a new engine and a complete redesign.

    The dog is kinda symbolic of the ultimate anti-climax. Like, we’ve done mechs and laserguided rockets, so… Have a furry little pet instead. He only kills helicopters.

    It’s a bit like a muffin basket, with a note. “Sorry babe, we blew everything up already”.

    #53 1 year ago
  54. KineticCalvaria

    @53, That’s precisely it though, the one thing in common that these reviews have is that we’re all fed up of predictable bullshit.

    Activision can’t ignore the fact they’ve got such low scores compared to previous CoD games, I really hope that we go back to a CoD game every 2/3 years and just put some actual effort into a game for once. (Not gonna happen but I can dream).

    #54 1 year ago
  55. SplatteredHouse

    “Pick your poison. Who do you go with?” As well as that, what is the level of expectation. There’s a metric to assess against. Although, I’m feeling that (and Adam Sessler mentioned this in his latest Something, that this is due in no small part by publisher water-muddying and messaging misdirection) I don’t know where expectation should be, for these new games.
    So, perhaps you go by enjoyment. Sterling didn’t enjoy playing it, but like you say, was he experiencing the straw to break the camel’s back of his tolerance for this build of CoD. (If something does that, has that effect, is it still to be lauded?)

    There appears to be a sense of the game being capable of offering fun, provided one doesn’t look for much of anything but More CoD. I’ll look at some more opinions (I have seen several so far), but I saw it being played and so I have to weigh that impression too.

    #55 1 year ago
  56. DSB

    @55 Exactly. Or maybe there is something wrong with it, but people just haven’t really been able to spell it out.

    That’s exactly what frustrates me. For some reason shooters make me fiercely competitive, so I totally geek out whenever I play one, I really go into details with the weapons, the controls and the dynamic of how it all fits together.

    That’s the sort of thing I really want to know whenever I see an interview about a shooter. “What were you thinking, specifically, when you made this gun or that gun. Why is the recoil like this. Why is the movement like this. What role does it play to the other guns” – Instead of those never-ending streams of vague, PR-produced ambitions and dreams and ideals. Barf.

    It’ll be tonight before I have a chance to play it and see if the scores really fit the game, or if they are low because it’s unpopular to say good things about COD.

    Wow, even kotaku said that the feeling of been there done that is too strong. I thought they tended to be one of the more laid back outlets.

    @60 Really? I haven’t read Kotaku in a hundred years, mostly because the community was freakishly like a bunch of Stepford Wives incessantly agreeing with eachother in a nauseatingly polite fashion (heading to VG247 was a refreshing change of pace).

    … But when I did read Kotaku, their reviews were usually really quite good. They didn’t even have scores and junk. They used words!

    That’s Kotaku in a nutshell in my opinion. On those rare occasions where they get it right, the journalism can really rival any of the truly big newspapers on the planet. But when they drop the ball, which they do almost every day, it’s just embarrassing.

    Wow….These scores are lower than expected, will still sell like crazy though. COD needs a kick in the pants to survive, they need to ramp up their game big time.

    Infinity Ward used to make the best COD’s, and then the shakeup happened and many of the good people left and are now making Titanfall. This unfortunately shows that the new Infinity ward isnt the same as the old infinity ward.

    Holy ****! Apparently, Activision have issued the maker of the FOV fix a cease and desist notice. So, it’s been pulled. They are just trying to “reappropriate” the modders work, and claim it as their own, now aren’t they.

    “on request of Activision a local court ordered me to take down ‘any CoD content’ – which somehow seems to include temporary files used by the updater to ‘verify’ a game installation. Since receiving the court order, I have contacted a local law firm which is still in the process of going over the case, however, today I received an e-mail containing a letter (German, page 2), claiming that other projects are also infringing this court order.

    Although I’m still standing by my point that these titles do not contain any Activision files (and therefore I am not ‘providing (part of) the games’), I have taken them offline pending further investigation as a precaution.

    I’ve played it now. It’s beyond bad. It’s so glaringly bad that I’m amazed that reviewers somehow managed to hold back and not tell you just how bad it is.

    If these reviewers had any spine, they would tell you what TotalBiscuit tells you in that video.

    It’s… So bad. SO BAD. It’s not just a step back, it’s literally MW2 visuals with like… MW3 gameplay. I’m not even being hyperbolic, I’m not an asshole. It’s just exactly that.

    Best thing I can say is that there are no retards dualwielding machinepistols… But it doesn’t matter because now the game isn’t fun anyway.

    Avoid, avoid, avoid. Avoid with the most extreme prejudice. Go play BLOPS 2 instead.

    I’ll try to put some more meat on those bones in the forum, but now I’m just gonna fuck off to sleep.

    OR you know, go play BF4. A superior experience (yes really, you’ll thank me for it later).

    Learn the ins and outs of the maps, and you will have a far more rewarding experience.

    #73 1 year ago
  74. DSB

    @73 Right. I’m sure an 8 is leagues more rewarding than a 7.

    CoD (traditionally) is a tightly designed game, Battlefield is a jack of all trades and a master of none. They’re really not similar beasts.

    Either way, I’d definitely recommend BF3 over Ghosts. Based on what I’m hearing BF4 is a broken mess, and barely stable at the moment.

    A good night to you, sir!

  75. Hcw87

    Depends on the gamemode really, Team Deathmatch and Conquest Domination (along with perhaps Obliteration) is heavily influenced by CoD, so you might enjoy those.

    Sleep tight and think on that.

    @75 True, CQB is badass. I know that because I’m not religious about the shooters I play.

    @72 All that really goes to show is how utterly broken gaming scores are. Let’s not forget that a 7 in most gaming media is about the equivalent of a 5 in any other market.

    Reviewers having no spine and a general lack of any critical thinking shouldn’t come as a surprise to you DSB.
