Like I said last week, this is one of the three games that I picked up at launch for the PS4. I really had no intention of playing a Call of Duty game. I know a lot of you are thinking that I’ve already played a Call of Duty game for the PS Vita, but can you really count that as an actual Call of Duty game? Anyway, the pickings for the PS4 when it was first released were slim, which is why I played this game. Unfortunately, like the other Call of Duty games to come, it ended up on this list and I’m going to tell you why I never finished it.
In Call of Duty: Ghosts, you play as Logan Walker. In the near future, you’re part of an elite US Special Operations unit called Ghosts. Just like your brother and your father before you, you’ll go on special operations that only the Ghosts can complete. During this time, you’ll find out that your father’s partner was kidnapped years ago while on a secret mission and is now slowly taking down Ghost members one by one. It’ll be up to you to put a stop to him and basically save your fellow Ghost members. That being said, does anyone really care about the Call of Duty stories that are being told in the actual game or are you guys just here for the multiplayer? Let me know down in the comments section because I would genuinely like to know.
This being my first real Call of Duty experience, I have to say that I really enjoyed the story of this game. I know that’s something that’s not wildly popular to say or even talk about, but I enjoyed the campaign. I thought that a lot of effort went into the story, maybe because it was the first Call of Duty game for the PS4 and I thought it was original and it kept me entertained enough that I played the whole campaign straight through without playing anything else. I would have gladly went back and finished getting all of the trophies for the campaign and played on the harder difficulties, but then I got into the multiplayer for this game. I tried the normal multiplayer for this game, but soon realized that it just wasn’t for me because when I got into the multiplayer, after playing the main campaign, everyone was already over leveled and no one likes dying over and over again because the matchmaking is just horrible. After that I switched over to the new Extinction mode. I have to say that I really enjoyed this mode, but playing with random’s is not fun and after trying this for a few days I finally called it quits and never went back to this game.
There are a total of 51 base trophies for this game, 92 total if you want to count all of the DLC, and I was able to get a decent 26 of these trophies giving me at least a B rating in this game. Now while I was able to get most of the campaign related trophies, I’m only missing a few more of them and the remainder of the trophies are of course for playing on the hardest difficulty and the multiplayer stuff. The trophies I’m missing really aren’t that hard to get, but will require a grind, and will require people who aren’t random’s to play with.
Probability of this game getting played again…0 out of 5.
Sorry, but I really can’t see myself playing this game again. That being said, I did have to play a little bit of this game to get you guys some actual gameplay footage and while I really did enjoy it because I did enjoy the story, I didn’t enjoy it enough to put myself through the torture of playing on Veteran difficulty or going back to the multiplayer. So while it was a nice 20 minutes of playtime, that was probably the last time that I’ll be playing this game.
Now it’s your turn. Did you love this game? Hate it? Actually play the main campaign? Enjoy the new Extinction mode? Let me know down in the comments section below. Now for next week, a jump back to my PS3 because I was still playing on both systems at this time, a highly underrated game that I got for free thanks to PlayStation plus, but at the time I was playing it I just wasn’t digging it. This was surprising to me because it was an RPG that was similar to Dragon Age: Origins so why wouldn’t I love it? I’ll let you know why I just didn’t instantly fall in love with it and why I never finished Kingdoms of Amular: Reckoning next week.
