    It all adds up to the finest Call of Duty game yet, and it comes from the riskiest package. By and large, Call of Duty’s Warfare line has always maintained the slightest bit grounded, never quite leaping into the distant future by this much...But the leap is a success, underachieving tradition of Michael Bay films be damned.

    Infinite Warfare provides a huge package with a lot of fun gameplay throughout. There's something here for everyone, and enough to keep us all playing for another year.

    Overly familiar multiplayer, but tells a compelling story.

    Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare succeeds in most aspects of a solid sci-fi shooter. However, a lackluster and rushed story takes away from what could have been a full and complete campaign mode. Luckily where the story lacks, the gameplay and solid mechanics Call of Duty deliver.

    Activision and Infinity Ward have decided to play it safe, offering a solid and tested formula, without any relevant additions that could rejuvenate the structure of the game, the gunplay or the multiplayer.

    Even though Zombies in Spaceland and multiplayer are just more of the same, as a whole, it’s hard to find an FPS on the market as fully-featured as Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. The campaign is the surprise highlight, with heart-pounding action, jaw-dropping graphics, and fresh ideas for the series, making it worth checking out even for those disappointed by its sci-fi themes.

    An assemblage of hits and misses, that's the measure of this year's Call of Duty. I could say something about publisher Ubisoft pulling back from its annualized Assassin's Creed franchise, or how even Doctor Who gets a break. But it's probably simplest to remind that it's shooter season, and this year, the alternatives are formidable.

    As a real gamer i like to try a game first BEFORE hating it and not just because "Call Of Duty" is in the title.
    If you're like me and not played COD for a few year IW is a great way to jump back, the campaign is awesome and multiplayer lots of fun. It also comes packaged with the best FPS of all time MW1. Dont jump on the hate bandwagon, be a real gamer and try for yourself.

    Like many of you out there I too keep saying "Stay away from Activision and their horrible add to COD" yet I am not real smart because I keepLike many of you out there I too keep saying "Stay away from Activision and their horrible add to COD" yet I am not real smart because I keep buying the games. After the mess left from BO3, anything had to be better.
    The Campaign - This is beyond annoying as you cannot cut through the scenes of nonstop yapping. Outside of that and the fact I will not finish it, it is decent. No where near the best but not the worse (that would be BO3 for sure) It is not uncommon for me to play the campaign 5-9 times. I simply cannot tolerate this one.
    Multiplayer - I strictly play HCTDM. The movement is so much better than BO3 and similar to AW. Weapons choices are mediocre and the exo suits are rather over powered. The constant issue with the past 3-4 CODs has been lag for many users. Having a monster rig and 500mbps fiber connection appears to only hurt me. My dedicated rig allows me to be shot long before I see the person in many cases. My games fluctuate from 8-20 when laggy to 35-15 when it is not. That is a HUGE spike in metrics that truly takes the fun out of the entire game. Sadly the low laggy rounds take the majority (around 65%). Often you can back out and reenter the same lobby and the lag goes away for a game or so.
    Activision makes it more and more obvious that they make the game for money and do not care about the players. With a 50% decrease in sales, I am glad people are smarter than me and avoiding this franchise all together.

    The Game is Dreadful.

    Obviously scoring this 1 our of 10 needs to be justified. This game is not the worst game ever made. There are - somewhere - games out there worse than this. But in comparison to other call of duty games this game is such a drop down it is unbelievable. I hated Ghosts but I still (eventually) reached prestige 10 on it. As it was playable and could have fun moments to it. However, it was heavily flawed. The arguments at the time was this was the first COD game on the next gen consoles so give it a break. However Infinite Warfare is just so much below Ghosts. The difference between Infnite Warfare to Ghosts is like the diffference between Ghosts and COD4. Its a huge step down.

    Do not buy this game, you are mad if you do, stick with Black Ops 3. Given the 1000 prestige levels it had, and the million and one supply drop content there is still room to play. Infinite Warfare needs to be forgotten and just go down in history as the Batman and Robin, or Superman IV the Quest For Peace of the gaming world.
