Incredibly unstable

Once you get to the gameplay, the game is great. But, there are so many cinematics between the gameplay that you spend five minutes watching the story, then two minutes actually playing.

Multiplayer is ok. But, there is not nearly as much of a following as there was with MW so your choice of servers is incredibly limited. You may have a choice of 3-5 servers.

The bigger problem is the game is the single player mode is incredibly unstable. I am lucky to play for 30 minutes without it crashing. Once you are playing, its fine. But if you die or get to one of the cinematics, so every few minutes, it’s a 50/50 shot if it will freeze when trying to load the next gameplay segment. This is running on a top spec Retina MBP so graphics or processing power is not the issue. It is bad enough that I am considering trying to get my money back. If I had not bought it when they had a discount and paid full price, I would definitely be trying to get my money back. It seems that the saved game files are getting corrupted. So, when it goes to reload a saved game, it hangs and freezes. Your only option is to go back to the menu, select play level, and start the level from the beginning.

needs a little work but its a great app 4/5 stars

this is one of my favorite games that i like to play on ps3 i decided to get it for pc because it looks fun so far. good app note that thier is a slight difference in the graphics and the controles are verry different from other games thier is one problem with useing a controller when ever you try to shoot and you have a killstreak it pulls out your killtreak so when im in multiplayer and i walk into a room or guys and pull out my care package it makes me feal real stupid so could you please fix this i canot play multiplayer like this i give it a 4/5 stars if it has the controls fixed then 5/5 stars its a good app id get it when its half off tho and if you could get a controller button option to change the controls for a xbox or ps3 controller to what ever you want that would be nice
because i play with a ps3 contoler and i am used to shooting with R1 and aiming with L1 so it makes it hard to use the controls for x box

Average Shooter

I have been a COD player since the first one back in the 90’s. I like each and every one of them for different reasons. This version does not disappoint. Like all CODs though, it does have those annoying things that if the developers left out, it would make for a much more mature and refined multi-player experience. Anyone who has played against the non-stop noob tuber knows what I am talking about. Despite some of the unrealistic flaws in action, it is a fun game to pass the time. The only drawback is that if you are planning on purchasing the expansion pack, plan on not using it hardy at all. For some reason people do not want to get on board with the additional maps, which not only add much needed variety to the roation, but are better maps in my opinion. The new maps are more detailed, larger, and make for more complex and tactical gameplay. Folks…..BUY THE MAPS AND USE THEM PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
