Call of Duty: Ghosts Multiplayer Hands-On Preview

Here's crossing our fingers. MW3 was the first time I really felt the multiplayer was actually a step backwards (and I still hold BlOps I to have the best multiplayer, if only due to map design and the unlock system). Still, it looks like they overhauled the UI and finally gave full avatar customization, something Rainbow Six has had since at least Vegas when I started playing that (yeah, BlOps had that too, although you were pretty much limited to 5-6 designs per faction and they were tied to a perk).

I thought I saw some destructible environments, but I could be wrong...

Sounds fun but i have to ask if i have to level up my weapons again? It is a really dumb system I and I hope they remove it. It is a be reason why i like Blacks Ops so much. I could unlock a weapon and make it how i wanted it form the start.

Destructible environments? Female characters? DOGS!?! Looks good. Though I can't help but think that there will suddenly be a HUGE amount a female avatars running around. Don't know why.

Nah, it's not an RPG with skimpy armor.

I'd say the gameplay looks pretty decent and fun, now I'm waiting for news about how you connect to a server and some map videos. I didn't buy MW2 but I heard that the game-lobby system sucks. If it's like CoD4 again where you simply have a list of servers and connect to one without waiting I may buy it.

OK. I'm going to be that guy. It looks like watered-down Battlefield. Say what you will, but I liked that I had two distinct kinds of games I was playing when it came to the two games. I played COD for arcadey, fast-paced craziness. I played BF3 and BFBC 1&2 for a more deliberate, though no less fast-paced style of gaming. (Also Tanks. Tanks, Jets and Helicopters.) COD looks like it's trying to incorporate elements of "Levolution" that Battlefield 4 has. I'm not impressed by this trailer. I'll have to see what the new game plays like at my buddy's house. I haven't bought a COD game since BLOPs. Just haven't been able to get into COD lately. Just personal opinion though. I have no nerd rage against COD. I've certainly prestiged enough times in the COD titles I do own to make any argument against the game on my part, hypocritical of me.

While it has not convinced me to get the game at all, I will say that squads mode is a pretty cool idea. I like the idea of being able to make yourself stronger online even if you are playing offline so kudos to them I suppose. Knowing how everyone else like to copy Call of Duty, I would not be surprised if other franchises get something similar. If Halo had a mode where I could play multiplayer like matches offline with smart bots, I would be pretty happy.

Like I said before, I am done with Call of Duty, I have little hate for it, but franchise fatigue has taken its hold over me tremendously. I don't even play online multiplayer anymore anyway, so this is nice to hear, but has no real interest for me personally.

I skipped the last two installments, but this trailer has me genuinely intrigued. I like where they are going with this title and probably will jump back into the franchise and give it a shot. I'm still expecting it be just like Call of Duty always has been, but the new add-ons look like a good mix up of the stuff we're use to.

I'll give it a go.
