Eric Hirshberg after unveiling the “Call of Duty: Ghosts” game which features on Xbox One called it a stunning leap forward for console gaming. The game carries connotations of Hollywood war movies action figures in it and contains some pretty realistic shooting scenes. The makers have set high standards for this gaming genre and look forward to the progressive fine tuning of this war game.
According to Forbes, the game has gone on to grow beyond expectations and is bringing in some serious profits. A new version of the game is in order for the next generation of avid gamers. What the game basically portrays is a United States of America whose government is defunct and which has been taken over by guerilla warriors. The fighting patriots are at a loss for weapons and are smaller in number than the enemy. Yet they have the guts to keep fighting to win back their homeland from the bad guys. The sheer interest-provoking quality of this game makes it ideal for teenagers with a lot of passion and aggression trapped within them.
There are guns and submarines that figure in the display screen. Therefore, an all-out battle is taking place beneath sea level as well as above it. You get to create the characters from scratch and a milieu that looks so realistic it gives you chills. The elite fighting corps that features in the game was brought into the story situation by director and writer Stephen Gaghan, he of the movie “Traffic” fame.
The adrenaline emotions that he brings to the copy are just out of this world. There is even a canine that helps the soldiers in avoiding bombs and other hazards. Then there are the maps you get to form in the quest of the enemy’s hideouts. It is a really wonderful vision of combat that reminds one of the ending of many great civilizations of the past that were subject to imperialistic over-stretch.
Ultimately, today’s modern environment has become too safe and so the need for thrills has increased. While living in a sedentary society, men, women and kids need stimulation and excitement that normal routine tasks can’t fulfill on a regular basis. It is video games that fill the gap here. Playing Ghosts on Xbox One will especially feed your need for speed and surrealism in a matter of minutes if not seconds.
