    This really makes me question haters; beats GTA, Titanfall and BF. All over YT and blogs people say ‘ogm ghosts suks’. I honestly enjoy Ghosts; not the best- but not as bad as what people say.

    • Haters are gonna hate.

      • OpTic_Fanboy

        Indeed, haters gonna hate.

      Beside to the people who generally hate CoD without any reason there are some people that hate on Ghosts for good reasons.
      It just fell way behind expectations even for a current gen game. The graphics may be better but the gameplay feels worse than its predecessors.
      There are too many broken mechanics and gadgets (Mantling and IED).
      I was extremely disappointed by this game though being a long time CoD enthusiast (since CoD 3).

      • GinsuVictim

        I’ve never heard a complaint about the mantling. What do you feel is wrong with it? (I think it’s the best it’s been)

    • Super_Deluxe

      Ghosts sucks. Thanks to CODs popularity, kids will continue to force their parents to buy it for them despite the rating, which is why it’ll continue to dominate even if the next Title will be even worse than Ghosts (but I think that is be possible)

      • Sal

        Get better excuses. Kids are not playing CoD anymore. They moved to the “cool” games like GTA otherwise my car wouldn’t be blown up every five minutes or have my ears raped by squeakers.

        • Siftblade of Rivia

          What COD are you playing? 90% of lobbies are squeakers. Same with GTA. Just because a squeaker plays one game, doesn’t mean he can’t play another. I can go on a big rant about spoiled children in the gaming community, but i’ll spare you the trouble. Point is, most people bought Ghosts just because it’s the next COD, some people genuinely like Ghosts, and others bought it because they were children who wanted to be “cool” and the parents are completely irresponsible, etc. In GTA, I auto-mute randoms, so I wouldn’t know how many squeakers are there exactly, but I know that when I play COD, there are kids everywhere.

          • Sal

            You’re probably deaf then. Haven’t seen a squeaker on over three months.

          • Unreal

            i hear squeakers all the time and Im always asking myself how they could get the game … if the game was sold really only to 18 years old it would be much greater!

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            Dude, stop pulling stuff out of your ass. You’re obviously the one that’s deaf. Of course there’s the normal population of adults who play Ghosts, but there are still tons of squeakers.

        • iAmEFFeX

          I was going to say the same thing. People want to keep pretending only kids play Cod. There is a huge adult population too. Let’s stop pretending it’s the clueless parents that keep this game going. People just love playing Cod and there is nothing wrong with that.

          • [email protected]

            Correct – I’m 41 and off my 40 friends on Xbox only 2 or 3 of those are under the age of 18! Play Clan v Clan if you think the public lobbies are full of kids or if their squeaky voice irritates you then simply smash that mute button! Then can come back here and post positive comments like us mature kids!

      Ghosts sucks but as a COD, not as a game. thats my take on it.

      • jippy

        I dont get why you bother visiting this site if you hate this game so much. All I see from you is “ghosts sucks”. What you’re trying to prove?

        • Confirminator

          Everyones’ entitled to their own review of the game. Criticism is not always a bad thing.

          • jordanxbrookes

            Hating on a game over a part of it is a bad thing to give criticism about. Constructive criticism is the true form of criticism, but I ain’t here to review Ghosts. Btw People over at IGN are crying and whining over this. It’s funny watching them squirm.

          • TheShadowReaper

            yeah i just went to see some forums on IGN and i have to say that the stupidest people are over there commenting. better stay here at Charlie Intel.

      • [email protected]

        Care to explain why it sucks? or is this a matter of opinion because you love the word “Sucks”?

        • Grenada!

          The reason I hate Ghosts is because the game promotes camping with the quick time to kill and the maps just seem to be made for campers unlike BO2 where there wasn’t that many places to camp.
          The game is slow paced to compare to previous CoD games. Ghosts took away some of the best game modes like Demolition, Hardpoint, CTF, Headquarters and HC S&D. The colours in the game are also very dull and greyish which makes it not that pleasant to look at while playing. People who camp in bushes with their IEDs and Ghillie Suits, the game seems to just promote that kind of stuff.
          All the guns kind of feel the same and there are like only 5 main guns that are used in MP anyways. I hate some of the streaks and I think some should of never been in the game to start with such as the Guard Dog, Oracle and the new UAV system sucks. Most of the killstreaks are useless anyways and don’t seem worth the grind to get them. I still think support package is cheap and shouldn’t be in the game, same as MW3.
          Campaign wasn’t that interesting and it was rather boring to play through. I had to force myself to finish it unlike other CoDs where I loved playing through the campaigns. There were no really memorable characters in Ghosts like how Black Ops has Woods, Reznov and Mason. MW has Price, Soap, Makarov and Ghost. CoD Ghosts just doesn’t have that and if any of the characters died I wouldn’t give a shit because they’re all dull.
          So that’s some of the reasons why I hate Ghosts. So don’t bother saying people who say the game sucks just says it to hate on the game.

          • [email protected]

            ^^ You still fail to give valid reasons why it sucks – Saying a game sucks purely because the player is camping is hardly the devs fault! I guess I’m just easily pleased…

            oh and why do you want every game to be fast paced and like all the rest?

            We can agree on one thing – IEDs are annoying but as I’ve said previously if you play Clan V Clan then IEDs are totally immaterial!

          • Angelreborn96

            How about.. You suck and never stfu about people giving their opinions? The spawning sucks, the maps suck(I don’t even have a favorite map like I used to in other COD titles), the guns suck, the quickscoping in this game is too easy, especially with the semi-autos, now they’re a one shot kill, barely requiring any skill if any, because they used to be 2 shots to kill in other COD titles to keep it fair, hmm the knifing is pure bullshit seeing how you can lunge at someone like Commando Pro again, and there are way too many campers in the game now, they should’ve brought the perk “ghost” back to be able to see them on the UAV if they’re camping. The UAV also sucks because it’s not the traditional UAV which was better and easier to find people to kill, especially find campers. Support system is horrible. Getting a squad mate should be for assault, and guard dog for support. I hate them both anyway, but squad mate is too annoying. What else? Oh right and I played one time solo on stone haven against a clan, and they had A and C flag while my team had B, and they all camped outside with M27 thermal waiting for my team to come out and die.. And that wasn’t the first and only time that’s happened, it’s happened in other games as well. Basically it’s not fair anymore. This game is horrible, which is why I am never buying a COD ghosts game again. I’ll try Advanced Warfare and if it sucks, I’m never gonna buy it again. And if the game Treyarch makes later on is gonna be bad as well, then I’m done with COD

          • [email protected]

            ” You suck and never stfu” – If I was sat next to you this moment I would slap you with a big wet fish – that said I wish you luck in your next game what ever that maybe…

          • Angelreborn96

            Okay is that all you can say? Do you have a problem with anyone who says “sucks”? You still never stfu. Do something in person, I’d love for anyone to try. I got .223 Rem(AR15) .45ACP (4th Gen Glock), 7.62×39(Norinco SKS) also just bought a new English rifle that’s 7.62×51 which is just a bigger shell, and gun powder. 6.8 Rem. Got a lot of shit buddy. My gun safes almost full. This is the real deal my friend. Love hitting targets that are 1,000 meters away. Anyway enough about one of my coool badass hobbies. 🙂 tell me one of yours? Play cod all day maybe? Getting 5 KEMS a day?

          • Anonymously Anonymous

            I like how he threatens to slap you with a wet fish and you throw your gun collection in his face. I feel like you would be one of the biggest pussies in the world without a weapon.

          • Angelreborn96

            Oh really now u little cunt? I workout all the time cuz I love to. Want me to show u pics of my gym in the basement? And there’s also my gun safe too! I’ll definitely take a pic for you I promise you. 🙂 do u have a Kik? I’ll show u me benching 255 how’s that for a the biggest pussy in the world? And bitch, I can actually man handle a gun, and shoot targets at 400 meters away. It’s quite difficult to actually be able to hold one in the proper stance, until you get used to it. Don’t u see the military using guns and how they’re badass motherfuckers? Because they can man handle one. You’re just admitting ur a pussy urself if u call a man a pussy for being able to have a whole gun safe filled with guns and works with them as a hobby. So you can go fuck urself alright little Steve urkel? Goodbye

          • Grenada!

            I just gave you my reasons and opinions why the game sucks.
            Campaign sucked, dull characters, boring missions and forgetful.
            Killstreaks are crap to compare with other games.
            Slow paced and rather boring gameplay.
            Maps are all bad apart from maybe 2 or 3.
            Some of the best game modes that have been in almost every other CoD are where to be found in Ghosts.
            I could go on for awhile but these are some of the many valid reason why I think Ghosts is garbage.
            PS: Call of Duty has always been a fast paced game and why should I be forced into playing Clan v Clan because of the stupid IEDs? Why won’t IW fix them but they ignore us and continue to create crappy DLC.

          • [email protected]

            What do you want them to fix with regards to IED’s? I know this is a game but you do realize that in theater / Operations IED’s kill people? Sounds to me that you want all COD games to be the same, correct? – It’s nice that you took the time to comment but I find that your comments are based on your personal preference as apposed to bugs / problems with the game which I would deam a crap game..

            I’m always geared up for changes! – Why hell I personally think that COD2 on THE PC was the best COD ever made but I don’t want every game to be like COD2!

          • Angelreborn96

            Amen. You just said it.

          • gippers

            Camping is a tactic and it shouldn’t be discouraged just because some people are too ignorant to quit running right back to them.

          • exeterman2

            But the IED makes camping to easy. It should not be a viable tactic, cod is meant to be a fast paced CQC game. Sure on a larger map, sitting on the high ground with a sniper is viable. But sitting in the corner surrounded by IEDs with an SMG for the entire game is just stupid, irritating and should be punished.

          • Grenada!

            That’s what a camper would say and it’s not a tactic on modes like TDM and Free-For-All. CoD is a fast paced game that you’re supposed to run about in, not sit in a corner for 10 minutes. Camping is cheap and always will be.

        • TheShadowReaper

          then its a matter of opinion if you think that its “good”. but we all know Ghosts isnt a COD game, it fails to be a COD in many respects. so stop trying to force your opinion on others. i state my opinion but you didnt see me commenting on your opinion like that. i would explain why it sucks as a COD game but i’ve done it so many times that i’m fed up. go ask someone else that shares my opinion to answer you.

          • jippy

            HA this made me laugh.

        • jippy

          Oh noes look what we started. Lol to all the haters XD

          • [email protected]

            That’s why I stopped replying – Know one has given me a valid reason as to why it sucks so much! – Begs me to think if a game sucks that much then why do they even bother commenting!

          • jon allen doe

            My reasoning on why ghosts isn’t good is in my opinion just doesn’t feel like a COD game.it feels like some wannabe cod game like the ones that were popping all over the place after cod4. For one, the 9bang barely does anything to distort someones view, When I’d play I’d use it with recon to point out all the enemies for my team when playing domination and They god rid of tactical insertion. what the fuck. the maps are fucking huge and they were extremely helpful in domination on either defense or offense. some may argue that it was too camper friendly but that’s a viable tactic and it’s retarded for some of you guys to try to limit other peoples gameplay to what you want. the fuck up of these two things was the deal breaker for me. Now, you could say that why don’t i just try other tactics and I have, I play the game for about 3 months without these items and come to the conclusion in my own opinion that the game is crap to me. it doesn’t appeal to my playing style and I also don’t feel rewarded when i win a match or unlock things. they didn’t introduce any new weapon attachments, very little new perks and might I add they fucked p the cold blooded perk from mw2.

            So in my opinion, the game sucks. everything’s dull colored and it doesn’t appeal to my play style. So This is the first cod game I ever just completely stopped playing and I’m not buying the next one unless its less than 20 dollars on amazon used.

          • Anon

            Ghost isn’t great, it does have its flaws. I seem to find the current match making horrid, and that is with me playing on the PS4. The current kill streaks are cool at first but become boring after a couple of uses. Thermals almost feel too good. Even when you put incog on it is still extremely easy to locate your target.

            Ghost has it’s flaws but it is far from the worst COD, and it definitely isn’t the best.

    • tobi xw

      i personally didnt like ghosts that much because its such a striped down cod it had nothing in it at the release day…but over time this game steadly improves i still dont play it much but….compered to wht it is now to wht it was i agree its not the best but not as bad as it was…

    • Siftblade of Rivia

      If it was up against good games or games that were actually out on both/either next gen consoles, it wouldn’t be top. The only reason it’s top selling is because everything else on next gen sucks right now. That’s why I can’t wait for E3.

    • OscarTheTitan

      Whilst I respect your opinion I have to disagree. Ghosts isn’t automatically a good game just because a lot of people buy it. The CoD franchise used to be my favourite but that peaked at MW3. BO2 was alright but not fantastic and TBH Ghosts is just… kinda boring :/ I did give it a try, I really did but it just wasn’t fun. Also you can’t really put GTA in that list. GTA V is not a FPS and it’s only similarity to Ghosts is that there are guns. That’s all. I’ve been playing GTA V for months now and it’s still amazingly good. Single Player and MP. Plus an onslaught of free DLC 😛

    • [email protected]

      Ghosts is a fantastic game – They invented the bandwagon just for all the COD haters – in turn they jump on it one by one until the next game comes around! secretly these guy’s are playing it more than you or me!

    • Angelreborn96

      Ur a fanboy

    • Pabby

      COD fanboy wait for gta V to release On Next gen and make cod its bitch

      • OpTic_Fanboy

        Brb; looking for fucks to give.

        • Pabby

          Then why the fuck did u reply

  • Grenada!

    The reason it’s beating GTA V is because GTA V is not out on PS4, Xbox One and PC. If GTA V was out on next-gen, well we wouldn’t be reading this article. Well done on getting this, even though Ghosts sucks.

    • Sal

      The fact that GTA blew every other title out of the water on the first day of sales, your argument is flawed.

      • Siftblade of Rivia

        If they re-released GTA on PS4/Xbone, tons of people would buy it. It would be top selling for quite a bit. Even though their Online was complete garbage up until around now (It was littered with glitches, hacks, etc) it is still a really fun game. Plus, they update it basically monthly, with new vehicles and stuff, so it could stay top selling for a good while, probably until AW or Destiny comes out.

      • Grenada!

        How is my argument flawed? Plus you just agreed with me by saying that GTA V did beat every other title lol.

      • Kobeey

        Notice how they said Xbox One and PS4? What game do you think is top on the 360 and PS3? GTA V is my guess and if GTA V came out on the PS4 and Xbox One, it would crush CoD on those system too.

  • Plato/Tomato

    Looks like CoD is gonna continue to dominate well into the next generation.

    • Siftblade of Rivia

      No doubt about that. Thing is, it doesn’t matter if they make a game that is absolute trash, worse than anything we’ve seen before. People will still buy it just because it’s COD.

  • Kobeey

    Dosen’t really deserve this spot but since there are no good games on PS4 and X1 I can see why. This is why I stayed with my 360 and PS3, better games. And yeah, GTA V would blow this out of the water if it was on these consoles like what Grenada said.

  • ccrows

    I actually like Ghosts.

    More people will probably like Ghosts next year when it will be the “Cool Thing” to hate on Advanced Warfare…

    • k5berry

      Unfortunately that might be the case. Hopefully these new exoskeleton changes will cause people to not immediately hate on the game. I like Ghosts (I may not be the best example as my satisfaction with online FPSs is based largely based of of how successful i am at it), but i can’t play it for like hours on end like i could with BO2.

      • ccrows

        I like Ghosts and BO2, and can honestly play BOTH for hours.

        For me using Specialist and going for KEMS is a lot of fun…. *shrugs*

        • k5berry

          I got that rush trying to get bloodthristies for my guns in BO2… shows you how much MLG skill i got lel. But ironically i got a majority when i played relaxed

      • Batman

        I cant play BO2 for 20 minutes without getting bored

        • Sgtsclark

          Yep!!! Bo2 sucks to me and ghosts is awesome, see how people have different tastes. Just because someone thinks a game sucks doesn’t mean that it does, it just means it does for you.

          • Unreal

            Both have their pros and cons i think bo2 has amazing maps for competitive and I really like the colour of the game and graphics. The downside of bo2 is the matchmaking system the lag compensation essentially its a broken game for online gaming its too inconsistent.
            Ghost is better for the connexion If you play online pubs (private lobbys are horrible like bo2)
            But the game isn’t as good looking as bo2 was and the maps are too clutered and horribble in my opinion especially for competitive players. or players which play the game to make high scores and stuff like that. On the other side for the average player ghost may be fun and entertaining.

    • Siftblade of Rivia

      I doubt that. Maybe the people who like Ghosts now. I liked BO2 throughout it’s entire cycle, and when I played Ghosts and hated it, I went back to BO2. Not because it was cool, but because I like BO2 and I don’t like Ghosts. If I don’t like AW, I’ll stick with BO2.

      • Jack Meoff

        You went back to BO2 because its easy where ghosts it takes some type of strategy

        • Black ops 2, easy?
          This is probably coming from a guy who sits in a corner with a target finder…

        • Grenada!

          In Ghosts all you have to do is sit in a corner with some IED’s close by and then kill people with 2 shots because people die so fast in that game. That’s not skill or strategy at all. Black Ops 2 was praised for actually bringing back skill to the Call of Duty franchise by many people and pros. Now go back to your corner in Ghosts and don’t forget your IED.

        • Siftblade of Rivia

          No. I went to BO2 because it’s fun. Fun > strategy. That’s my opinion.

      • Grenada!

        Agreed.

  • BULLETS2YOFACEBICH

    GHOST IS THE SHIT. YOU GUYS HATE ON IT BECAUSE Y’ALL DONT GET ATTENTION FROM YOUR PARENTS AND YOUR LACK OF BITCHES, SHUT THE FUCK UP RUN INCOG AND THROW CANISTERS

  • Jack Lame

    COD: ghosts sucks.

  • Sal

    Where are the people that said Ghosts is a sales failure, eh?

    It’s not the best COD out there but it’s still fun to play, and that’s what matters to most people.

    • Siftblade of Rivia

      Why do you have to post this on every article that it says Ghosts is top selling? You get the same response every time, yet you never seem to understand.

    • Where are they? My guess would be off playing other Call of Duty games or other games completely. Peak player counts speak for themselves as to guage how good a title does – besides just sales.

  • Seth

    What map is that i think its new dont reconize it

    • That’s from the Campaign Mission ‘No Mans Land’

  • Kurama The Nine-Tailed Fox

    Proof that Ghosts was a step backwards? Call Of Duty: Advanced Warfare. Every COD goes into to the future and Ghosts wasn’t futuristic enough… stick with the program IW and don’t make Ghosts 2. =/

  • VVFZ

    181 Days until Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare release ;(

  • Instakill115

    But…..But……But Titanfall was going to kill call of duty!!! Remember that guys!! WE WERE PROMISED!!!! Theres no way it could of been dumbass little haters who just pulled shit out of their ass “IT COULDN`T BE”!!!!!

  • Ryumoau

    i’m excited for both Destiny and Advanced Warfare. 🙂

  • Confirminator

    The best selling game is not always the best game. Sometimes its all about money and marketing.The better game is not always the top seller.

  • ObV Swift

    Hopefully we can hold that title with Advanced Warfare coming out in November, also there is going to be some big competition with the new Pokemon coming out the same month.

  • IchiraKorasaki

    For anyone that cares, Devastation is currently available on PS3 and PS4.
