That paragraph got too long...so continuing on multiplayer! I love love LOVE that they are bringing back split screen online multiplayer (from CoD3) and zombie mode (from CoD WaW)!!!! This alone was almost enough to sell me on this game. They also have a level up system that resembles the ones used since CoD4. They are also bringing in something like Halo: Reaches daily challenge system. Players can buy "contracts" which expire after a while, but offer experience bonuses. This will definitely help speed up the leveling process...
So after reading all that... you must be wondering "Why the heck would Matt refuse to buy this game??" It boils down to two things guys, 1: this is the 7th game in the Call of Duty Series (I think... I may have lost track) and honestly... I haven't seen a whole lot of innovation. They found something that works, and they're sticking to it, which is fine, but I'm bored with it. 2: With all the drama that went down with Activision, and a lot of the people leaving that had worked on the previous Call of Duties (I said doody) I am just not convinced that this game will be up to par with previous games. The other games weren't flawless by any means (See my CoD MW2 post) but they were playable, and fun. Anyway, that's just my two cents.
