Disappointed with Call Of Duty Ghosts One Player and Extinction

Hi guys,

this is probably my least of all the COD's I am afraid which is why I have not posted up maps of the extinction game mode, mainly because ther eis only one and its fairly easy to navigate around as there is really only one way you can go.

I bought the game the day it came out at about 11:40 am and had the one player completed on Veteran by 7:30pm. I thought the story was okay, especially the bit in space I liked a lot in the Odin satellite when all hell brakes lose when terrorists seize control of it.

The one thing I was really really looking forward to was the alien game mode Extinction, which I thought would last for quite some time, at least until the next Trayarch game comes out with hopefully more zombies. After A few games I ranked up quite quickly on my own. Then when I decided to join an Xbox Live party of random guys, I thought we were never going to do it it, as lots of people left the game halfway through and I just couldn't be bothered.

However, after another few failed attempts I found a great team of 3 that stayed with me to the end. We found that using grenade turrets in sections where there is the barrier by the aliens which cannot be affected by the drill, dramatically speeds up the destruction of it with the black hawk helicopters help. After a very good but short hour, the mape was done and I was hoping this would unlock maybe the next section or a new map to continue this great game mode, but I was wrong.

This is what has annoyed me about it as every level we will have to buy in each of the DLC content packs and this is one COD I am going to give a miss on the DLC content I am afraid. Its basically Modern Warfare 1 / 2 all over again with very little, if any improvements. I am playing the multiplayer but am starting to get slightly bored of it already and am up to level 52 at present, but am losing the will to play it.

Just thought I would let you know why I haven't updated the blog for this new game as to be honest, I do not think it is worth £45. Battlefield 4 isn't a major improvement either but at least they are going in the right direction with it by making far more players available on Xbox one and PS4, where COD while capable of adding lots more players and larger maps, stays the same as on the normal Xbox 360 which is just pure laziness if you ask me.

Some more improvements need to be made to COD and some kind of new style of gameplay etc as its getting very old. The tenth iteration and to be honest, not much has changed since Modern Warfare 1 (COD 4).

Bring on Xbox One and Battlefield 4 until the next Treyarch game comes out as I am sure they can find ways to use the Xbox One power to bring the franchise to new levels.....fingers crossed :)
