    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.

    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.

    First of all: It's a damn shame people are somehow logically (not sure how) able to compare CoD with Battlefield. CoD is a fast-paced, arcadeFirst of all: It's a damn shame people are somehow logically (not sure how) able to compare CoD with Battlefield. CoD is a fast-paced, arcade first-person shooter (you know, like Doom or GoldenEye back in the day) whereas Battlefield is a slower-paced, war simulation first-person shooter. Both games are good at their OWN thing. If you can realize that, which is logical and can be proven on many bases, then we can move on and judge Call of Duty Infinite Warfare for what it is.

    The good: it has a great single player campaign, which CoD has been lacking for some time now.
    The other good: I happen to like Black Ops 3, and this multiplayer took more from Blops 3 than it did from Advanced Warfare (thank god!). Now, it also took some failures from Ghosts, unfortunately. The maps are a lot of fun and the weapons feel less futuristic than Blops 3 or AW weapons do, which is nice.

    The other, other good: Yes, I got the Legacy edition. Yes, it was part of Activision's "scheme." So, yes, I've been enjoying both IW and MW:RE But (for those who like to compare), I hope you don't cry out when EA screws you with their pay-to-win, because that is definitely coming in a couple of months after they're done with holiday sales.

    The bad: It is too much like Blops 3 in too many ways. But the good to that? They improved some issues Blops 3 had. The other bad to that? If Blops wasn't Treyarch, then IW should have been an expansion - more or less - to Blops 3. Oh well.

    The really, really, really bad: the fanbase. Since the release of Ghosts, due to the high number of new players brought to the franchise by Blops 2, I have seen the CoD fanbase get more and more toxic. Some of them have good points, but are easily drowned out by those who have no clue what they're talking about when they say, "Why can't we cut the futuristic bullsh*t," because... well, quite simply, their first CoD was Blops 2, and that was futuristic. So... yeah.

    Naturally, when you have a game as easy to pick up and enjoy as CoD, you will get a lot of low-hanging fruit kind of players; people who only play CoD and one or two other games; people who don't know anything about what it means to actually look at the good points and bad points of a game. Unfortunately, everyone has a soapbox these days, and people tend to jump on bandwagons and get off them just as quickly.

    Back to the game: If you enjoy a good story mode (not because "Jon Snow" is in it) and a fun, repetitive (when was it ever not), fast-paced, ARCADE fps game, then you will enjoy CoD (especially if you get Legacy edition) and, perhaps, will start getting bored of it sometime near June or so.... ready for whatever the next announcement is at E3. But if you do, genuinely, without peer-pressure from stupid kids, enjoy the action and fluidity of CoD, you will no doubt keep coming back to it every weekend with that feeling of "man, I wanna play some fast-paced shooter in a small map."

    This is something Battlefield 1 cannot offer. That's why so many on here, including myself, are saying the logical: Don't listen to BF fanboys. They're on the bandwagon. Soon, they'll say another game is better than BF. It may even be the next CoD game, for all they care, because they have no opinion of their own.

If this game was a complete new franchise and Activision hadn't taken the measures they did to try an force the game on players I would probably had giving it a 7.

    So I'm just gonna list the pros and cons of this installment of COD and you'll decide if you want to buy it.

    Pros:
    Great graphics
    Good control
    A good enough campaign
    Good story
    Fun Zombies Coop

    Cons:
    Short story (around 7 hours)
    Plain MP levels
    Same MP game modes
    MP just seems like a BO3 DLC
    Performance issues (Sometimes freezes)

Now that I have spent around 30 hours in the MP and really wanting to like it I have to face the fact. This game is a total abomination! Just the face that they say that the game has been in development for 3 years and slap that right in your face when you start the MP is a joke. Because I loved Ghost compare to this. If you want details why the game is **** please look up other reviewers. My english is to poor to explain everything. This was just my feeling for IW:MP Expand

    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.
