Quotes

Lt. Khalil: We'd hoped you'd bring reinforcements. Drones, robots, munitions... anything.
Player: Winslow Accord resources have been stretched thin in the wake of the recent intelligence leaks. But we have bigger problems. Your prisoner may have vital information on the men responsible for the NRC's latest attacks. If we apprehend them, we'll be able to ensure more support for your army.
Hendricks: That's the polite way of saying shit's fucked up for everyone. You want help? Get in line.

CoD goes Ghost in the Shell
18 March 2016 | by residentgrigoSee all my reviews

Treyarch's first main CoD game (No.3) was pretty rough but they immediately improved and managed to become the leading team for the franchise. Last year's Advanced Warfare was a very similar game and the narrative (a GitS adaptation in disguise!) is a bit convoluted but the campaign is the best since the genre standard setting Modern Warfare. It even features a WW2 callbacks with Cyborgs vs Tiger tanks! The Treyarch typical difficult and gore also returned and the series apparently gave up on "attention grabbing" shock value as it has been missing in action since MW3. The Zombie mode should have stayed a room defense game but i like the 40s look and the main multiplayer is a blast if you crank it up to hardcore which features one-hit kills. The game lastly looks as good as a 60 fps console shooter currently can and the sound design is top notch. Next year's CoD may be doomed after 2 hits in a row... This is the best current shooter of the generation.
