    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 But it’s not outdated, it’s classic, and the considerable effort that has gone into improving the models, textures, and effects have enhanced it enough that playing through the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]

Then I found out it is mainly because of the multiplayer issues about which I don't care about since I was interested only in the campaign and dear God it delivered.

    A little bit of my background: the only CoD game I played before was World at War which I can't say I loved much (7/10). I can't say I disliked WaW but there certainly are some aspects I would rather like to see be improved and enhanced - that's exactly what happened in CoD:Modern Warfare Remastered. I didn't like how scarce the range of weapons to use was in WaW? MW has at least doubled that amount. I wasn't impressed with how the guns felt? MW made everything possible to make you feel the weight of the weapon you carry. I didn't like how NOT tactical World ar War was. It felt like it didn't matter that much where do I hide or what weapon I use - as long as I am a good shooter and move my aim quickly and precisely I am going to dominate the battlefield. It is not the case for this game. I doesn't matter how good your shooting skills are, how fast and precise your moves are if you don't choose the right tactics, the right weapon, the right cover - you aren't going to last long (of course if you play on Hard difficulty which I always recommend you to choose no matter what game you play).

    Graphics. Should I really say much about the graphics? For my taste they are gorgeous, though the animation and physics of dead bodies are definitely exaggerated (though the settings have the option to turn off ragdoll physics but it doesn't help much). The optimisation is okay I guess because I managed to get stable 1080@60 on Highest settings and x2 Multisampling with my GTX 1660.

    Story. Let's be honest: the story is kind of "just there". It is not bad in any way - maybe it even is as good as a story in a FPS can get I just didn't care about it that much. I don't even think it is the game's fault - a storyline isn't just what people come to a FPS for and I am not an exception. Though the characters could be given much more attention and development - it certainly wouldn't hurt ( I only remember that Price has funny moustache and English accent or something and that Gaz is a good looking fella with a nice cap. Oh, and Griggs is black and we saved his life.)

    Overall it is a fantastic game and a good remaster. In terms of gameplay I can't even imagine what could be improved - the pure shooting is already fun by itself so maybe if MW 2 is at least as good as this one in terms of "story" and mission structure I can't wait to play it ASAP.

    Single player review?

    Same old game with better graphics. Can't complain. ---- Multiplayer review? On launch day; only 134 players

    ----

    Multiplayer review?

    On launch day; only 134 players in the past 11 minutes, in the last 24 hours there was 451 players, all time was 6,075 players (stats from SteamCharts).

    You WILL be spending most of your time in lobbies. At this point, someone should create a Discord server so that people that want to play the game can get into lobbies quick and easy with players that also want to play this game. Mostly everyone is playing either TDM or HC TDM, all I want to play is HC SnD.

    I personally only bought it because the original COD 4 on PC never had a workable lobby like on Xbox 360/PS3, only a server browser. So Infinity Ward never gave and/or stopped supporting Official servers like what MWR has. I searched for a lobby in HC SnD, we had 5 players and we needed 1 more player to play. A guy in our lobby stated "this might be the first time I might actually play HC SnD." Believe it or not, we didn't play, we found no one. He told us to switch to normal SnD to see if we can find a match there, nope, same results.

    What Activision should do is give a chunky discount to users who have COD 4 in their Steam library.

    Pros;
    - The game itself, oh my... The memories.
    - Graphics
    - Game lobbies
    - Some of the guns got improved sounds, some should have just been left alone.
    - Better animations

    Cons;
    -- The price, I paid $49.59 (from its standard $80, during the MWR standalone launch sale) for the deluxe edition to have both IW and MWR. The MWR price, then with the expectations to buy the DLC (I didn't) also to play on all the maps, the standard price point of MWR is stupidly high for a remastered game that has a dead community.
    - MWR is filled with Activision’s greed. Microtransactions up the bum hole.
    - New weapons, are they really needed? Including melee weapons, really? Can you just leave that for other crap CoD titles?
    - No dedicated servers, all peer to peer host connections like normal CoD.
    - Game modes show a % size, instead of an actual number. This means you don't know actually how many players are in a game mode.
    - Small community = only x amount of game modes can actually be played. Everything else is a ghost town. Most, if not all game modes have "< 5%" of people playing/searching for that game mode. In reality, it's probably like 0.5%. Get into a lobby and it says 'No Match Found.'
    - The snipers. You were able to quick scope easily in the COD 4. In this? It's slow and horrible.
    - It has 0 Steam integration whats so ever in-game. When I click on a player names, it should have the option to go to that users Steam profile (like how Xbox and PlayStation has one to go to a users 'gamercard/profile).'

    Bugs/Glitches:
    - At times when people are talking during the process of the match being over and goes back to the main lobby. The game freezes for a few seconds and the players voices just repeat.
    - Even with extra video memory available the game can easily lag and hiccup when loading into a match. It will then lag and hiccup again once you get into a match, but after awhile it doesn't do it anymore.

    Tips:
    - Upon starting the game, be sure to pre-cache the shadows. If you don't you will receive server timeout messages when entering a match due to all the shadows that you need to load.

    At this point in time, they should just do cross-platform with Xbox/PlayStation so that we can play with them.

    MWR multiplayer is not worth it right now. But, if you have the extra cash lying around get it. It's not that bad if you just close your eyes when you see the paid DLC and microtransactions.
