but the pervasive attitude among hardcore gamers that anyone who buys the Call of Duty games every year are somehow less intelligent is crude.

They are less intelligent. I mean it doesn't surprise me in the least since people buy the nearly identical FIFA/Madden iterations year after year, but it clearly shows consumer stupidity. These are not new games anymore. Ever since CoD4 (and I actually LIKED CoD4) they've been releasing incremental updates at a $60 premium, and that says nothing of the ridiculously overpriced DLC inevitably shoveled out in between. I was fucking pissed when UT was gearing up for frequent iterations, but for fuck's sake at least Epic had the courtesy to make large, fundamental changes from UT-UT2K3-UT2K4-UT3.

The zombie mode is the only identifying factor here, but I somehow doubt it's worth $60.

Zombie mode in this is way over hyped "biggest map ever made for call of duty" etc, it's three maps - four if you purchased the digital deluxe version to get nuketown zombie mode. I thought there would be a mini story campaign for it, being that it's stand alone executable instead of a last minute easter-egg addition. It's just a couple of maps loosely stitched together by way of a bus you can ride on, gameplay is just like before - survive swarms of zombies till you die.

Multiplayer is actually pretty fun, enjoying the maps and the gameplay. It is what it is, gun p0rn for the most part.
