Not too bad
This year's Call of Duty isn't terrible — it takes the development from last year's Modern Warfare, such as cinematic loading/match starts, and an improved gunsmith, and does the usual Treyarch tweaks: primarily a slightly slower time-to-kill (TTK), emphasis on moving rather than camping (Ghost doesn't hide you from UAVs if you're sitting doing nothing), and maps with less chaotic sightlines.
Raven Software, who tackled the campaign for Cold War, have done a good job. While the story and set pieces are as predictable as ever, small options such as minor character customization and dialog choices (such as whether to capture or kill a high value target) are interesting and, unusually for a Call of Duty, there are optional side-missions that require actual puzzle solving and brainwork to complete fully and successfully. It's new and refreshing.
Multiplayer is as frantic and fast-paced as ever; veteran COD players will immediately feel right at home, especially fans of older BLOPS.
