Intense and immersive single-player story line. It’s engrossing enough that you won’t want to stop playing until you see those credits roll.
Over the top action. Some scenes are more than reminiscent of ‘80s-style action hero blockbusters, but if you can accept that, it’s great fun.
Brutal gore. Whether this is a pro may be up for debate; I just like seeing when a developer isn’t afraid to let it all hang out. You can always toggle it off.
Co-op zombie defense mode returns! One of the best parts of World At War gets a facelift for the Cold War, but largely remains as fun as it always was.
Fantastic hidden minigames. I won’t spoil the surprise, but they’ll have you JUMPING out of your interrogation chair.
Dedicated servers for multiplayer. Taking this for granted for so long made it all the worse when we were screwed by Modern Warfare 2… It’s so nice to have them back.
Graphics are sub-par. They’re still using a graphics engine from 2007 that wasn’t at all impressive back then… Hopefully, it’s on its last legs.
Launch marred by performance issues left a bad first impression. Random hitches and stuttering in multiplayer and overall crappy performance in singleplayer left many a PC player slamming his head into a wall. It’s been patched since then, though.
Some exceedingly frustrating parts in the campaign. Added challenge from higher difficulty levels aside, a few areas were just poorly designed.
