I was just shocked when I set the game to pre-load. Between Single Player and Multi Player, it requires 66GB of space....I mean, wow...that's almost 3x what BF4 takes. And I sincerely doubt that a COD game is going to look anywhere near as good as BF4 nor do I believe they've included textures for higher than 1080p resolution.

Probably just uncompressed files, because they are bastards like that

Yeah ... was slightly pissed off when I started downloading, I'm not expecting too much from GHOSTS and
having it take up that much space will piss me off even more if it is a lemon.

BTW, sorry for my absence, been busy with work and other stuff, hope you guys are all well :D

Let us know how it is, get some footage maybe, some up close shots of textures too. Every trailer ive seen it looks like shit.

I doubt I'll bother with this. Never found any previous CoD game to be worth anything more than a way to pass 2-3 hours of time (total, and at best).

Sneaky, you're back!

And I'd be more upset for paying for it than it taking up HDD space

Game is a piece of shit ... sooooo pissed off I wasted $90 on it ... same P2P crap as MW2 & MW3.
It's so laggy it is almost unplayable.
Graphics are a marked improvement on MW3 but still nowhere close to being impressive.
Also the character models are up the shit and the games aspect ratio looks all out of proportion.
Infinity Wards CoD games just keep getting worse.

Sticking with BF4, been really impressed with it so far.

Sneaky, I just finished playing the Single player game, and it was actually very entertaining. BF4 is still better, but they didn't do too bad with COD: Ghosts. I beat the game on the highest difficulty and was excited to start Multiplayer. Couple problems.


1) FPS capped at 91. Can use an app to unlock it...but potential to get banned. Regardless, for me it's 120Hz or Bust. So I risked it.
2) Resolution. The resolution was TERRIBLE in multiplayer. I have no idea why. It felt like it was either 720p or 1080p, upscaled to 1440p. It was nowhere near the visual quality of the single player campaign.
3) Ping Times. What's that? COD pissed me off with Black Ops 2 when they went with a dumbed down latency meter that meant absolutely nothing to me. So to fix that...they simply removed the entire concept of ping times and latency.


This company does not care about PC. Whatsoever. Thank God for BF4.

I tend to buy games for the multi-player, single player is over before
you know it and it is multi-player that keeps you playing the game.
GHOSTS multi-player is just crap and I'm not about to install single
player for a one time go through, especially considering the size of it.

If bandwidth is free, play the single player. It's actually really good. Though I am with you that I buy games for multiplayer, not single player. I don't know how to describe it but single player ghosts looks 4x better than multiplayer. And there are a lot of very interesting scenario's to play through. It is worth the rather large download.

I think it was longer than bf4's single player. And the difficulty level is higher in COD so you have to be very sharp/quick at times. I liked it for that.

The difficulty is higher, yes. But the problem is that the AI is TERRIBLE. I've played every CoD Single Player probably a few times (depending on the game) and its the same BS. They just camp, everyone aims at you, their aim is near perfect (including grenades), and it just feels so bad. Sometimes they take cover on MY side of the object, or parallel to me.

Not to mention, while I'm ranting about this game, that the story is cheesy. BF4 was slightly below average, I could guess most of the upcoming 'plot' points. But Ghosts? Completely predictable from the start. Also, dialogue is cheesy. I watch my porn muted and that still sounds better than most of the voice acting of the characters in Ghosts.

On to graphics. Turned everything way high, and hey. Best looking CoD. But it killed my VRam. Turned settings down to get an acceptable VRam level, and fps to stay around 90fps, and it looks like CoD:4 on now-generation old consoles (360, PS3). Also, I find it odd I can set framerate in the settings to my Nvidia CP-added 96Hz and 120Hz. I heard the game caps, but having vsync off must not show it.


Alrighty. I think I got everything.
Wait.
The game interruptions.
"Hey, there are two guys over there. Why don't you control the dog and kill them, instead of the two of us going and knifing them?"
"I know your'e single-handedly shooting all the enemies while we cover fire behind these boxes, but can you control the jets to shoot the tanks/helo's?"

Great game.

The expected cod hate is a shame.
