Call of Duty Ghosts PC Review
Most of you, if not every one of you, know Call of Duty series. They've been around since about 2004 or 2005. I still remember playing first one back when I was in high school. So does the new Call of Duty Ghosts bring a nice piece of cake to the table or it is another boring game with nothing new to offer?
Call of Duty has been known for generations (or just years) for action packed Single Player and lots of fun and even more action in Multiplayer. I'll start with Single Player. Ever since Call of Duty I, I enjoyed every single piece of the Single Player. From the battle of Stalingrad to Berlin, every single piece of all missions was fun and even somewhat educative.
Call of Duty II continued to give all action and entertainment game could possibly give. For unknown reason, Call of Duty 3 did not make it to a PC market.
Call of Duty Modern Warfare was a huge jump to the new level of gaming. The plot was great, the action was above great, and graphics were revolutionary.
Call of Duty Ghosts indeed continue the series in a nice way with lots of action, detailed graphics, and a unique plot. Now I mentioned plot last because I personally was not fan of the plot. I don't like when plot goes to some future time and even though it did not affect the gameplay, it had me confused on what's going on.
I liked an idea to have a dog in the gameplay. It did not change much in the gameplay, but it was a nice addition to the game. Besides the dog, everything else in the game was pretty much the same. It was cool to see flooding and some underwater adventure.
Now the Multiplayer. Out of all games out there, Call of Duty has been my favorite for online gaming. Only other game that has an awesome multiplayer is Swat 4. Unfortunately Call of Duty Ghosts multiplayer did not offer what I wanted.
I'll start from what I liked. I liked the "co-op" mode where you play with teammates trying to eliminate all 20 waves of the suspects. You can go hardcore and increase it to 40 waves or play with unlimited waves. There is also alien or zombie mode, which was ok. You have to put a drill next to a huge monster/alien and protect it from other zombies/aliens. As I mentioned before, I am not a fan of games with future worlds and/or zombies etc.
I liked and disliked the coin system in the game. With that system, you can get all the weapons you want in the first levels of rank. It is good when you don't care about unlocking anything else and it's bad when you don't care about rank since you'll have all you need in a day or two.
Now the number one huge fail of online. Once again, why can't Call of Duty give us our dedicated servers back? I just don't get it. I still remember Call of Duty Modern Warfare, where you were able to play with 63 players on one map on a dedicated server.
Now let me tell you what I am dealing with. The game has like 10 modes including search and rescue, blitz, etc. Well, I was able to join only team death match, domination, and free for all. Why? Well because these modes had most players. When I go to join search and rescue, for example, it just says no games found. Now just look at the whole picture from my perspective. paid $60 for a game where over half of modes are not working due to who knows what issues.
Now there is a very simple solution. Just have dedicated servers. So far I don't see a single reason why it would be a bad idea. Battlefield does dedicated servers and I don't recall any issues with that option.
Call of Duty Ghosts is still good game to play, but unfortunately this time the game did really well in Single Player, but not so much in Multiplayer. It's still fun to play online, but you loose so much fun with tons of modes for unknown apparent reason.
I'd say wait till the game gets cheaper and then get yourself a copy. Plus may be future updates will fix some of the issues the game provided.
