Call of Duty: Ghosts - A Brief Summary

Call of Duty: Ghosts is the newest game in the Call of Duty series. This game is played by many children, all over creation. This game has been rated "Mature 17+" by the ESRB. Now, I don't find the game to be too violent. As long as you accept the fact that it's fiction, this game is okay. If your child understands right from wrong, get them this game. If they don't, you might want to have second thoughts about getting it. For mature teenagers, say, 14-year-olds, this game is appropriate. The violence is not gory or too graphic, just some blood, which isn't really visible. The language isn't bad either. If this game was a movie, it'd be rated PG-13. This game also promotes teamwork and also correct spending of earnings. This game is very fun and also teaches skills, but needs to be played by more mature audiences. By mature, I don't mean 17 years old, I just mean someone who understands the game is fiction, and understands right from wrong. Don't be fooled by the over-sensitive ESRB rating.

Good game, but bloody

Call of duty ghosts is like any other first person shooter game with blood and violence and swearing. Swearing is not really a problem though. It says s*** a fair amount of times but I’ve on heard it say f*** once. Online multiplayer has players swearing in it but you can mute them. There is lots of violence and using guns but if your child knows that using guns is wrong then this is the perfect game!

The First Next-Gen Call of Duty Game!!!

As it is a FPS, the main problem is blood and violence. Blood will sometimes squirt out of enemies, and in some campaign missions there is additional gore. There is also some language. While F*ck is only said once in the campaign, the credits has an Eminem song playing (says F*ck at least 8 times). There is also a Snoop Dogg voice-over DLC for the multi-player, and some of his lines include the word F*ck.

Okay for kids. Parents, just think it through.

What parents should know is that Call of Duty: Ghosts is fast-paced shooter. The first time I played the game, I had a hard time believing that it was an M rated video game. Kids 10 and up should be fine. There is basically no blood when you kill someone. You'll see it splatter in the air for 1 second and it disappears. It won't stain the environment. In the campaign there is an f-bomb that is dropped in dialogue and that is the worst that the language goes. There is a space mission where when you shoot someone, the blood floats for about 5 seconds because of the gravity. If kids want to play the game offline but with other people, then consider local play. Local play is a mode where you can play by your self and have Bots (Not real people) play with you. The worst kill streak (when you get multiple kills in a row) reward is when you get to go on a rampage with a knife. The only way to kill in this mode is to stab people in the chest. This is brief, and there is not a single bit of blood. As far as violence in this game goes, headshots are the worst. If you are letting someone from 8-12 play this game, try and force them to stay away from headshots. Head shots are bloody, very bloody. Considering the next-gen graphics in this game, the blood is graphic and detailed. Other than that, language online is horrible and you're child is guaranteed to hear one swear online. Players can easily be muted and you won't hear anyone. Unfortunately, this is the only game in the Call of Duty franchise/series that doesn't have an on/off setting for the blood and language. If you trust your kid can be mature enough to play this game, go ahead and let them play. Most parents are being overprotective of their children and won't let them play shooter games. This is not the first M-rated game a kid should play. Check out the reviews on halo or maybe even The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. These games are not that violent and they are a great start for kids. Thank you for reading my long review.

Call of Duty: Ghosts... don't let the stereotype get to you

This is a great game but be warned [NOT FOR DOG LOVERS]! Take this very seriously, throughout online play players can call in guard dogs which other players can kill or stab! It's horrifying, but do not let the stereotype get to you it is a beautiful game with rich landscapes and great graphics. In the online watch out for the people who can say terrible, terrible sexist and racist things... that is easily solved by muting the T.V. Other than that the swearing - in game - during the campaign F**k and S**t are used many times but it's nothing worse then what you hear at school . Also some of the cutscenes are super scary -You can get eaten by sharks- and get blown up by grenades over and over again - Spoiler Alert - You are forced to watch your dad die in front of you. Also your dog, Riley gets shot in the leg even after Riley being attacked by wolves. Get it... but be very careful

Great game!

The call of duty franchise is a great one. Some may argue that the series has taken a dip in recent years, but I think its still excellent. The campaign is good, could be better but the missions are fun, but the majority of players buy it for multiplayer. Multiplayer is very good, the maps are larger than previous games which is better in my opinion, weapons are good, game modes are very enjoyable, like my favourites Infected, blitz and kill confirmed. Squads and extinction are two new modes to cod and both are a fresh addition and very fun. I'd say the game is suitable for 13+ I'd recommend it to anyone!

THIS IS THE WORST CALL OF DUTY EVER MADE

There is no originality, horrible game modes, the graphics are the worst ive ever seen, and the maps are nothing new! DON'T get this horrible piece of trash! If you want to get a Call of Duty that is worth the money get Black Ops 2, now that's money well spent.

You can turn the blood and language off.

It's a fun and really good game. If you're kid is 11 and up he/she can probally (forgot how to spell but whatever I'm not in school) handle the violence. Anyways it's about two brothers that work together, you don't usally get that type of bond in fps's. Thanks for reading.

Good

While there might be much gunfights, the blood and gore is not bad. I do not recall ever encountering any gore and the blood is rather mild. However, if your child plays this game's multiplayer tell him to not give out his personal information and things like that, or do not allow him to use a microphone.

Not as bad as you think

The game IS a first person shooter, but this Call of duty was only rated 16+ by who ever rates the game. You can learn a bit of posetiv role modle as the poeple in the game figth for what they belive in. That is to get Amarica back after Spetsnatz taking over. The game is violent when killing guys, but thare is a story behind it all and when you shoot someone no blood can be seen. Tell the kids that you can not kill in real life, and then it is okey. Thare is a bit of swearing once in a while, but when you are sitting on the school bus kids talk alsow talk bad. So if you are 10+ I think its OK. It's not hard to play so you will not need to help them with many things.

Cod ghosts

The devs screwed up. They said it would be a next generation experience. It wasnt. Mediocre campaign, mediocre multiplayer, mediocre graphics and this game doesnt even work properly on pc. This game is one of the worst cod games ever.
