This review is from: Call of Duty: Ghosts Hardened Edition Xbox 360
Pros: Extinction is quite interesting. Fresh game mode.
They kept survival from MW3.
Multiplayer has interesting new additions.
Cons: Other thoughts...
Other Thoughts: My rating does not reflect anything on Newegg's part. They did their job.
I just am really disappointed after spending $120. Obviously $60 was for the DLC but still... I've played more Black Ops 2 since I bought this game. "If you liked Black Ops 2, you'll like Ghosts" is NOT valid reasoning here (as I loved BO2).
Anyway, campaign was... ok. Interesting at first, then somewhat dropped close to the end. The ending of the game simply does not work, and makes no sense (purposely avoiding spoilers).
Multiplayer just feels like the same Infinity Ward garbage. I'd much rather play MW3 than Ghosts (that's pretty bad). Sniping is over-powered, once again (despite the claim that quick scoping is out). You seem to die easier in general. The randomness and chaotic level is too high. Spawning is quite bad too.
Before dropping any money on this game (especially these special editions), just play it first. Borrow it from a friend, rent it from a store. Perhaps things will improve as they update they game (one can hope). But overall, I'm just not liking the core aspects and flow of the game.
Pros: Solid wi-fi adapter.
Other Thoughts: Got this for free during a special. All I had to do was paying $3 shipping. It is only wireless G, but rarely do I run into an ISP with over 50 Mb/s. As much as these companies can market the latest wireless standard as being "a drastic improvement" or "better gaming", it's mostly garbage. You're more than likely not going to use the 5 GHz band (less range; your device most like doesn't support 5 GHz). And unless your Internet Connection is around 50 Mb/s, you won't need more than wireless G. If you're doing a lot of in-house file transfers, that's different (but then again, I'd just go with wired).READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Awesome for what it delivers.
Other Thoughts: Getting this drive for $65 was a great deal. A good portion of this has been devoted for Steam (around 30 to 40%). Also good to note, this is not my system drive. I can't comment on boot times/how the OS performs. Load times for games are great. Perfectly happy with it.READ FULL REVIEW
