    An exemplary remaster of a classic shooter which is still a milestrone of the genre as far as gameplay is concerned.

    Put simply, Modern Warfare is no longer modern — though the combat and, in some ways, the action-movie story at its foundation are ageless, its level design and lack of campaign progression reveal its true age. But it’s not outdated, it’s classic, and the considerable effort that has gone into improving the models, textures, and effects have enhanced it enough that playing through the campaign again was rewarding.

    Ultimately, Call of Duty Modern Warfare Remastered might be the best remaster I’ve ever played. Everything is updated and beautiful, without losing a single thing long-time fans loved about the original. If you’ve ever wanted to see where the online multiplayer craze started, this is it – and it holds up amazingly well.

    It’s nice to see old friends again and relive fond memories, but if Modern Warfare somehow failed to enrapture you back in the day, it most likely won’t do it now. [13/2016, p.40]

I am truly enjoying the graphics and the game that hasn't yet turned into a futuristic nano-crap. This game brought back the old memories from the times COD was actually a great FPS and not only the hype it is today Expand

    Call of Duty Modern Warfare Remastered
    Beautiful and Dull
    Modern Warfare remasteredd is a remastered version of 2007s Call of Duty 4
    This now 10 year old game has been polished and looks and feels like it fits in with modern games today.
    This game features of course a multiplayer mode that is easily the most fun mode of this game, featuring your standard call of duty competitive modes as well as a mode I haven’t seen in a call of duty game before prop hunt where you switch sides being a prop and hiding and being the team searching for the props
    though this online multiplayer does add in a loot box system for the modern day to unlock items such as skins
    I didn’t find maps to be anything special, but as of right now this is the purest form of simple gunplay offered from a call of duty on current gen consoles, so if that’s what youre searching for you wont be disappointed as shooting is just as smooth and fun as its always been
    Speaking of not special though, I havnt played every call of duty game to date, but out of the 6 I have played.. this 6 hours campaign is easily the dullest ive played through…
    its generic and uneventful throughout..
    you play through the perspective of 6 different characters, though if I didn’t tell you this you would have no clue, as every character and mission feels and looks nearly identical throughout
    This campaign takes place in the middle east and Russia as youre dealing with both a civil war as well as taking out targets responsible for the execution of a middle eastern president..
    The level design here is boring
    I didn’t play the original call of duty 4 but I had so much dejavu playing this game like ive played it 1 million times before
    that’s how uninspired this games design is
    everything was so predictable, no cool set pieces or cool moments like call of duty is known for today..
    just your typical linear
    go forward and shoot things, and search houses that you know your target isn’t in but do it any way just cause… until you get to the end and climb in a helicopter
    ive never been so bored playing through a first person shooter campaign in my life…
    theres just nothing special here….
    its mediocre
    For its time Call of Duty 4 may have been a great and innovative game…
    But today Modern Warfare Remastered is a collection of a mediocre shooter campaign and an okay competitive mode…
    youre better off just waiting down the line for call of duty world war 2 for whats sure to be a much more complete package
    I give Call of Duty Modern Warfare Remastered
    a 6/10

    Remasterception : Remastering a game with the same old engine.

    Seriously, game does not look like a remaster at all, what's more, runs much
    Remasterception : Remastering a game with the same old engine.

    Seriously, game does not look like a remaster at all, what's more, runs much more worse than the original Modern Warfare, and -sometimes- look worse than it in graphical aspect.

    CONS
    -Poorly optimized
    -Bad and unrealistic animations (especially death animations)
    -Original one is still better than this Remastered

    PROS
    +Some new gun sounds are great
    +Original (same) voices of all characters
    +Some graphical additions

    COD games are already remastered edition of each other (even DLCs of each other), so no one needs a remaster of a COD game. Cheap moves from the big AAA companies these days, seriously...

    Dated and hasn't aged well one bit to be honest, boring singleplayer campaign and a shallow multiplayer mode with loads of exploits. CheatingDated and hasn't aged well one bit to be honest, boring singleplayer campaign and a shallow multiplayer mode with loads of exploits. Cheating is very frequent and items and weapons are unbalanced. On top of all that it runs like hot garbage on PC. i7, 16GB ram and a 1080GTX will often stutter, lag and drop under 60 fps on 1440P and even 1080P. The game does not justify the drops whatsoever and looks dated even with it's "brand new coat of paint". For every occasional fun moment there is 30 unpleasant experiences making it not worth the pain.

    TL:DR: A sluggish and old shooter that pretty much bases it's survival on nostalgia rather than it's actual gameplay. Oh and that also runs like a dead slug...
