Ghosts was a giant disappointment but man Advanced Warfare is looking really good. I'm mostly interested in the multiplayer at this point, but the single-player looks like it will be worth it this time around too.
The latest video for the new Call of Duty focuses on San Francisco, showing off a chase and the eventual destruction of the famous Golden Gate Bridge. read
