I played it on and off for awhile and honestly I really got into it I accepted the differences and the more I played it there were a lot of things I preferred than what bo1 had, but like u say bo1 still has that nice simplistic feel to it. bo3 should be nothing like AW. It should combine elements from 1 and 2 with obviously a few extras, being a sequel to those games surely it should have nothing to do with AW or its elements.
I think they should keep all this stupid super jumps and stuff to AW make that its own little series to cater for different types of players. I haven't played ghosts or AW just from videos I've seen etc it just doesn't look that 'fun' to me, so I haven't bothered buying either, but with Bo3 I don't know.....from what I've seen it looks very similar to bo2 so maybe I'll just have to get used to the 'newer' elements maybe.
