    I'm not really expecting much from Ghosts but it has the chance to be a mix up from CS:GO, BF3, and Black Ops II.

    EDIT: Despite having a machine more than capable of playing this game on max I get the constant "stuttering" or choppiness issue that so many people have complained of. The problem appears to stem from a memory leak that causes the game to max out my VRAM. To get this game to run smoothly I had to disable the Steam Community and turn off Fraps, as well as changing the priority in the task manager to normal and also disabling PhysX, AA and shadows. Only then could I finally play this game without lag. Definitely the worst CoD I've ever played. The technical issues I had to wade through pretty much ruin the game. If they think they're going to make money off of me with a broken product they're dead wrong.
