To be honest, I had pretty much said screw cod after mw2... the games pretty much became generic and boring... But I've always been I huge fan of the zombie mode... I'm glad they are going back to their roots. And as what others have said, you don't know how a game is going to be until you play it yourself. Developers change, and it may be different people that made this game as apposed as to their last one. But if you can't see past their last game, then just don't buy it. It's that simple.
