If you enjoy a thoroughly enjoyable FPS, then this is the game for you. But dont anything really different from it, as it is call of duty after all.
Im going to be honest, I really didnt have high expectations for this game, usually would watch all the build-up trailers, gameplay etc, and with infinity ward leaving (the modern warfare dev. team), I thought it was over before it began.
I think this is what made the game so dam good for me.
You pick up where modern warfare 1 & 2 ended. For those who havent played the series before (which I guess most have), they have a very good way of catching you up to speed with what you have missed. All those who completed the previous games will feel right at home.
Right from the word go, you will be thrown right into the action scenes, its almost overwhelming the amount of detail they have put into the environment to make it feel real, seeing some landmarks in their situation almost hits home its just that real.
There is no denying that the game is looking better than it ever has, and really runs smooth on max settings. Although throughout the game you are kept on a linear path, you more often than not have the choice to flank, stealth or just go all guns blazing to get the job done.
I honestly believe this might be the best call of duty since the MW series started, the story is phenomenal (best so far in my opinion), guns have never sounded so real, graphics are a thing of beauty and the gameplay couldnt be better.
All this coming from a BF fan, I know, it was a shock for me too haha
As if the story alone wasnt worth the 40 pound price tag, it wouldnt be a call of duty game if it didnt have MP. I was quite worried to see how this was going to turn out, really was hoping it wasnt like black ops, but it wasnt. A lot of people criticize it for being like Cod MoD 2, but apart from the online graphics, they must be playing a different game. It runs smoother, more guns, equipment, weapon skill level system, A LOT more balanced speciality system (assault, support and recon I believe), and quite a few more it, really pulls it apart from its predecessors. You cant expect more from a series to be fair.
The only reason Im giving it a 4 star is because even though the MP and the campaign are great, its still just another COD game, sad to say but the series has gone on for a long time, we have come to expect these great things from a series so big. It has lost some of its wow factors. (Although the campaign does have some brilliant moments)
All in all, if youre a BF fan boy or cod, or just looking for a good shooter I highly recommend purchasing this game, completely worth the price tag.
This is a game all FPS fans should have!
