Definitely one of the most balanced CoDs of the franchise so far, especially compared to BO2.
Sadly, it seems to be human nature to focus far more on the negatives rather than the positives.
Just look at TV news today, for example. How often is TV news (cable or not) actually GOOD news as opposed to BAD news? It's probably because much of human nature is about only caring about the good that happens for yourself, but not liking to hear about the good happening for other people. Even the "good will" type stories are only held during the last 2 minutes of program from what I've seen.
It's also largely about attention/viewers.
