The lights are on
I'm not a big Call of Duty fan, in fact, i got fed up with call of duty while playing the first black ops, and sold it (however it was to buy Skyrim, so...) and refused to buy MW3. however, one of my friends was describing this entry in the series to me, and it sounded great, and avoided most of the things I hated about Call of Duty, for example, MW2's "noob tubes" and AA-12 shotgun. and I firmly believe that this is, by a long shot, the best Call of Duty in the series. the campaign is fantastic, and the multiplayer avoids most, if not all, of the things I hated about previous entries. While I respect Dan Ryckert and his opinion, I would like to point out, that the strike force missions are quite fun, if you dont play like its an RTS, my friends and I found that if you play the game as an FPS and simply switch between people, the missions remain both fun and exciting, especially when you keep the bulk of your orders as movement, for example, in one mission, you have a set time limit to accomplish three objectives, where you have to place a hacking device and guard it until it finishes it job, and at each site, i met heavy resistance, so, i order my entire strike team to move to the objective, and, even though they suffered heavy casualties, they accomplished the objective while i was fighting for my life, unable to make my way over to it. overall, i believe this is a great game, and the best Call of Duty.
note: I am a Halo junkie, and this dragged me away from Halo 4
Nice. I really like the game.

I really enjoy the multiplayer over past games as well. Good review.
