You can almost sense the turning of the tides. Call of Duty has always had its detractors, but this time round reviewers and fans seem to be a little more critical of a series that has struggled to push forward for the last couple of years.
Call of Duty: Ghosts was supposed to be the next gen Call of Duty, but it seems as though it's more similar to previous iterations than ever, with one section in particular appearing to lift entire animations from a previous Call of Duty.
It's not a good look. At one point Call of Duty was a genuinely brilliant series, but now I'm wondering how it will handle the transition to the next generation? I think its unarguable that the Call of Duty series was a genuine phenomenon this generation, obliterating rivals like Halo in the end, but when you look at games like Titanfall and Destiny there may be a passing of the torch. If Call of Duty wants to stay relevant it has a real uphill battle ahead of it.
