Different,but not necessarily bad
4 December 2010 | by See all my reviews

An awesome game.Singleplayer campaign is very fun and interesting,but it's not a COD style and that's probably why so many people don't like it.

In my opinion every Call Of Duty had a good story,especially first MW and it was always a good thing,of course.But this time they overdid it.In FPS,story should be there just so that the game doesn't get boring,but here you spend 50% of the time watching scripted events without actually participating.There are two whole missions where you don't even draw a weapon of any kind.

Don't get me wrong,like I said,the whole campaign is great,but it just doesn't feel like COD.Story has MUCH bigger role than in any of previous games and there are a lot more scripted events.

Multiplayer is well-balanced,one of the best so far,but there are lot of technical issues which will hopefully be corrected by future patches.

And finally,it's one hell of a game that took COD franchise in totally new direction.Good or bad,it's up to you to decide.

P.S. Forgive me if I made grammar mistakes,my English isn't exactly perfect.
