So has the reviewer played anything other than other Call of Duty games? ANYTHING?
This game is terrible. ESPECIALLY considering the amount of money made from previous games and now this. The graphics are bettered by games that are a year older like Battlefield 3. The visuals in general are ordinary. Rather than thinking how nice it looks I could only gag at how terrible this "class leading" game looks. Maybe for a console it looks fine but on a PC on all detail on... just bland.
Sounds are average... very average. Voice actors may be OK but is ruined by the visuals no be matched with the same performance. I just didn't feel like the characters were "into it".
And the gameplay. Awful. I simply could not enjoy this. Sure getting cheap and easy headshots is fun but is ruined by constant annoyance of having to play the campaign EXACTLY as scripted, or you die. Can't reload while running.. Can't run for more than 20metres before getting out of breathe and walking- WHAT KIND OF POOR SOLDIER ARE YOU!
The only things saving this from complete failure is the story, which you won't be into much anyway. Step it up Activision, or at least for all our sakes come up with a new idea. PLEASE!

PS, Its awful. I actually want my money back, and then I want to be compensated for the 10 hours of trauma I spent playing the single player campaign having a crack at zombies, and trying to enjoy online.

You started the review with a title that made me roll my eyes and chuckle. This is just the same old same old and you know it. Modern Warfare was great. Everything after that is just a rehash although Black Ops was not too bad. And all of that non dedicated server bullsheet is just stupid to the pc on-line fps community.

But when a company is rolling in the doe with a cash cow how can you switch it up and change the game for all the sheep? I can't blame them one bit.

But I can blame you Chris Zele, for asking us that know better to stop our eye rolling.

Come on man!

PLEASE!!!!!!

The lack of dedicated servers had me extremely tired of the "lag compensation" in no time.. I'd been shot and killed after I turned the corner only to find in the killcam that I had not yet in-fact turned the corner.. And I've spent 20-30 minutes in the lobby getting rerouted again and again before an actual match starts. The MP portion of this game could have been the best yet if they had not decided to remove our favorite and best features.

For God's sake... PLEASE bring back dedicated servers!!!!!

You also get to fly a jet! WOOHOO Actually, I really did enjoy the snigle player and multiplayer both. Never was a big fan of zombies but overall I agree 100% with the score given.

nice review, although a few months late lol. I've enjoyed the single player game, multiplayer I'm completely over though.
