"Go here, hit this button, shoot all these guys, but donít wander off!"
Call of Duty: Ghosts is a Call of Duty game. Thereís simply no way of getting around that. Itís a very simple first-person shooter offering a short campaign and a heavy emphasis on multiplayer. You are a soldier fighting other soldiers who speak a different language, and if you are playing the campaign, you are an unbeatable super soldier even though youíve barely had any experience. In the multiplayer modes, you are a ballistics dummy with a gun strapped to you, hoping to God nobody finds you before the battle is over. You know, like in real war.
The campaign starts out strong, actually. You learn about the Ghosts, who are like SEAL Team 6 but, you know, way better. You play a short sequence in space that is surprisingly enjoyable and well-written, and then youíre thrown into the ruins of Los Angeles after the United States has been bombed and partially invaded by a new country called the United Federation.
