Call of Duty: Modern Warfare

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Reviews Summary

Summary: The Modern Warfare reboot pulls few punches in its story, but it also gets its tone confused. Luckily, the multiplayer is a much stronger experience and one that should only improve with its free content roadmap.

Deep Multiplayer

Leveling up guns and other unlockables is an addictive timesink.

Still the FPS Standard-Bearer

Tight as ever gunplay keeps all competitors chasing Call of Duty for another year.

Story Gets Stuck Between Worlds

Is it gritty and realistic or Hollywood and bombastic? It can't decide.

While it doesn’t break boundaries or define this generation, it is extremely refined to be the best version of itself. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare offers an engrossing campaign along with a multiplayer suite you can’t quit. It’s a game that’s heartfelt and genuine in its presentation. I’m so terrifically excited for what’s next for the story, and the multiplayer is calling my name. Infinity Ward has cemented the Modern Warfare series as the best of Call of Duty, and this is one not to miss.

For all the strengths of the story, multiplayer is where new and veteran players will sink hours and hours into. For both sets of players, Modern Warfare offers new content and hours of entertainment.

Call of Duty is back and is ready to recover the shooter king's scepter. Modern Warfare is the exaltation of the essence of this series, ready to counter the domination of the battle royale. The multiplayer offers multiple modes, each in its own interesting way. The campaign is among the most exciting that the series has ever offered us.

A successful launch, which puts Infinity Ward in the place it deserves and to which we grant recognition that the Infinite Warfare campaign - another of the best in the series - should also have been carried.

The campaign is done well, the cooperative multiplayer is challenging, and the adversarial multiplayer is arguably better than it has ever been. Perhaps most importantly, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare appeals to long-standing fans and new players alike.

Infinity Ward has achieved with this reboot create the best Call of Duty of the entire saga. An outstanding game in all its sections, with a story that catches you and a multiplayer capable of burying you in content. Without a doubt the shooter of the year.

Modern Warfare is one of the best war FPS of this generation thanks to a thrilling (yet controversial) campaign, great multiplayer in both coop and competitive modes, and a new game engine.
