Well the core game was rather dull, but you can't accuse Infinity Ward of playing it safe with the season pass content for Call of Duty: Ghosts. We've had ghost pirates, the Predator, Jason Vorhees, the vocal stylings of Mr. Snoop Dogg and a whole bunch more crazy nonsense.
Nemesis, the last DLC pack, comes to PC this September 2, bringing four new multiplayer maps and the final entry in the ongoing Extinction storyline.
You can check out the four new maps in the video above. They're fun enough, though nothing that special. Extinction started brightly and stuttered out a little towards the end, but its brand of alien-blasting co-op action is tense and fun, and probably the best reason to bother playing Ghosts' multiplayer.
We'll mark Ghosts down as something of a transition point for the series; limp in both singleplayer and multiplayer, lacking both identity and inventiveness. It felt, for the first time, that Call of Duty had finally run out of steam, and could no longer rely on bluster and big explosions to pave its way.
We'll see if Sledgehammer can breathe a bit more life into the franchise when its near-future entry Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare drops later this year.
