    I have always enjoyed the COD series but can't say I will be waiting outside a store to pick this one up like I did with COD 4, MW2, MW3.

    I have somewhat lost interest in the series after COD 4...

    I also had a similar experience with the Halo series... Went to the midnight release for Halo 3 then played it so much I lost interest...

    I have beaten all of them but have yet to return to play them since...
    I have found more interesting games like Just Cause 2 and prototype far more entertaining recently.

    The only reason I ever got into C.O.D. was because my buddy forced it upon me. Then my son played it, so I continued so I could spend some time with him (xBox live)... Other than that, I can't really stand the series. The storyline is always 2D, the action is always the same and online play is good for the first week or so.

    "Among the tales of sorrow and of ruin that come down to us from the darkness of those days there are yet some in which amid weeping there is joy and under the shadow of death light that endures."

    My the real gamer around here plays anything but COD Lost Planet and the Halo series are his favorites. But of course he hasn't played for a several weeks now he's still learning that Dad means what he says and that Xboxes and D's don't go together:)

    "Bribery & corruption" there by both parties it seems.

    He's having trouble figuring that out(must be a hard head like his dad), especially the fact that if had only done and turned in his homework the D would have been a B and just maybe if happen to actually learn something from doing the homework maybe even an A
