Realm of Gaming (Nov 19, 2013)
In that decade no other series has released annual installments that offer legitimate reason to forgo the last while remaining true to the series' vivid history of excellence. Don't believe it? Play Ghosts for a while and then put in COD4: Modern Warfare (or Call of Duty II if you still have it!). Every Call of Duty installment plays just about the same, flawlessly, but each offers far more than the last. Call of Duty Ghosts is no exception to this legacy offering a campaign against which no complaint can be made, a multiplayer experience more novel and expansive than any before, and much needed innovation in a mode of play that cannot continue to captivate gamers in its old form. Call of Duty Ghosts is a near perfect game, but as the series reminds us each year, there is always room for improvement, room the next Call of Duty will find and deliver on. Call of Duty Ghosts earns high marks in our book.

IGN (Nov 05, 2013)
Call of Duty: Ghosts isn't a reinvention of the franchise, but proves there's still room for innovation within its existing formula. Though at the risk of overcomplicating things at times, its robust multiplayer gameplay, surprisingly fun co-op modes, and lengthy, challenging, and varied campaign makes Ghosts one of the best Call of Duty games to date.

Gaming Nexus (Nov 05, 2013)
The PS3 version suffers from unimpressive visuals, but is still a quality Call of Duty game from a gameplay perspective. Unfortunately it's just the 'latest' and not necessarily the 'greatest' entry in the series.

For now, though, the overall Ghosts package hits almost all of its targets - for hardcore and casual shooters alike.

Despite an overriding feeling of familiarity, Ghosts is another excellent entry in the Call of Duty series.

So let’s just say that Call of Duty: Ghosts is a worthy title for kicking off the Call of Duty franchise on next-generation consoles… and it has dogs in it!

GameSpot (Nov 05, 2013)
From an exuberant campaign full of spectacle and variety to the way Extinction's unpredictable aliens force you to use those targeting skills in entirely new ways, Ghosts strikes an excellent balance between the familiar and the novel. This is a game that's keenly aware of the series' strengths, but doesn't find itself beholden to them. No matter what standard you apply, Call of Duty: Ghosts is a terrific first-person shooter.

PSX Extreme (Nov 06, 2013)
Call of Duty: Ghosts is an example of a tried-and-true formula that has begun to fray. There’s nothing particularly objectionable about it, the first-person shooter mechanics have long since been refined and almost perfected, and the multiplayer is still bound to draw in millions. The production values are still very high and the fun factor, depending on your affinity for the genre, is definitely there. None of that is in dispute. That being established, we have to realize that even the most successful packages reach a point where only minor tweaks and additions attempt to masquerade as innovation. That doesn’t work and hopefully, Activision will realize that CoD is on the downward slope and it’s once again time to reinvent. It must be done in the next generation.

Gut inszenierte, aber inhaltlich enttäuschende Kampagne mit altbackener Kulisse. Dafür rockt der Mehrspieler mit intensiven Gefechten und flüssiger Darstellung.

Call of Duty : Ghosts n'est certainement pas à mettre entre toutes les mains. Ceux qui y cherchent une expérience solo décoiffante peuvent passer leur chemin, mais ceux qui rêvent de parties multijoueurs intenses y trouveront davantage leur bonheur. La campagne pèche par de nombreux points, mais le multi propose des modes bien pensés qui tiennent en haleine. On apprécie particulièrement le mode Extinction qui propose de massacrer de l'alien en coopération avec trois autres potes.

Ghosts will disappoint those only in it for the singleplayer, although – Extinction aside – the multiplayer feels like just more of the same. Those who play online will still get their money’s worth, but a proper evolution of the series’ mechanics is now desperately needed.

Ghosts, in and of itself, is a fine game. It ticks all the boxes and then blows the boxes up in glorious 1080p resolution (on PS4 at least). Those who only ever play COD will be more than happy with it, but those who have grown weary of the series will see more of their ambivalence justified this time around. Infinity Ward had a chance here to throw down the gauntlet for the next hardware generation, to set the new standard, to show that this hugely popular, much derided behemoth can dance to a different tune. It's chosen to play a Greatest Hits package instead.

Någonstans på vägen har Call of Duty: Ghosts förvandlats från en friskt fläktande flerspelarkung till en dyr expansion. En bra sådan förvisso, men en som i min mening skulle må bra av förnyelse i mycket större utsträckning.

Gameplay (Benelux) (Nov 27, 2013)
Gebrek aan originaliteit, een verouderde formule en afgeschreven grafische motor beginnen hun slechtste kantjes te tonen. Enkel een nog steeds grondig uitgewerkt multiplayer luik houdt het geheel overeind.

Polygon (Nov 05, 2013)
Call of Duty: Ghosts is mired in a distinct lack of ambition. Outside of the stellar Extinction mode, Ghosts follows more often than it leads, bringing with it familiar missions, modes and experiences. Ghosts feels like an accountant's sequel, with just enough content to justify a new installment. It just never goes beyond that.

Slant (Nov 13, 2013)
Ultimately, Ghosts contains a handful of standout moments, but is regrettably something of a misfire. It doesn’t make enough changes or upgrades to warrant being labeled as the precursor of the incoming wave of gaming advancements. It’s a mildly distracting tumble through ideas and procedures Infinity Ward established years ago. Luckily, this is a series that will likely never fade away, and one can only hope that the next Call of Duty episode can liberate itself from the digital prison cell erected by its own stubborn stagnancy.

Giant Bomb (Nov 05, 2013)
Ghosts offers the same style of video game combat that Call of Duty has had since 2007. The core of it is still engaging and can be very thrilling, if you're receptive to this type of action. In fact, it's still my favorite online multiplayer shooter. But the bells and whistles surrounding the game are muted and missing, leaving behind that same core without giving you enough new and exciting reasons to come back. Even with the improved graphics to be had on next-generation consoles, I'd rather play Black Ops II.
 
Diehard GameFan (Nov 14, 2013)
Call of Duty: Ghosts is basically just another cog in the machine. While it adds a few new things to sweeten the deal, it mostly sticks to series traditions. It even eschews some of the popular additions made in the last game. The campaign is a write off, but the multiplayer is as robust and engaging as ever. If you’re a fan of the series, you’ll probably want to drop the sixty dollars just to keep up with things, though series fatigue is a distinct possibility. Let’s hope the new console generation teaches this old dog some new tricks. While I’m sure the sameness isn’t hurting Activision’s bottom line, it sure it starting to make all of these games blend together.
