Call of Duty: Ghosts DLC 2 “Devastation” detailed (gun release today)

It’s not a few weeks now since the first DLC for Call of Duty: Ghosts was released with Michael Myers in full effect, and Infinity Ward is ready with the second.

Call of Duty: Ghosts: why the hate?

Call of Duty: Ghosts: why the hate?

This week we're taking a look at the bigger picture when it comes to reviews of the game Call of Duty: Ghosts. When we first published our (still in progress) review of Call of Duty: Ghosts earlier this year, it was shocking to see how big of a backlash was issued at the hands of gamers that'd purchased the title and disagreed with our (mostly positive) assessment on a level so great that we were accused of publishing a paid review (which, for the record, we never, ever do.) Here we're taking a peek at some of the biggest complaints users have with the game.
