    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare puts the franchise back where it needs to be. You get a wonderful campaign, team-oriented spec ops, and a variety of multiplayer options that cater to those who love large and small scale warfare.

    One of the best installments to date, Modern Warfare brings the series back with an excellent campaign and a variety of co-op modes.

    Infinity Ward has done a good job, and luckily the game breathes the atmosphere and class of the first trilogy in many areas.

    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is not just a reboot. The solo game is great, his multiplayer mode, with Gunfight, solid and efficient. The game lacks a bit of depth (more hours for the campaign in particular) to constitute the perfect picture. But not to the point of not being an indispensable part of your collection for this end of the year.

    Call of Duty is undeniably a piece of propaganda fiction that glamorises and bolsters the image of war, as well as the perspective and ‘righteousness’ of western forces. That said, the campaign of this reboot of Modern Warfare tries heavy handedly, and at times problematically, to more fully and authentically tease out the ethics, complexities, and perspectives of one of our world’s biggest current conflicts. Though far from perfect, there is still absolutely some important ideas and experiences for players in this campaign, ones that may even open your eyes to a new way of thinking about warfare and the people in it - especially when thinking about ways that we can and should be fighting here in New Zealand, by accepting the refugees of these conflicts and contributing as much aid as possible.

    Modern Warfare makes meaningful tech upgrades to the Call of Duty franchise, making it look and sound better than ever while still maintaining its crisp, exciting gameplay.

    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare steps it up in the pure game-feel department; its guns, its movement, its action: it all feels the best it's ever been. Even with thrilling new modes like Gunfight and the Counter-Strike-like Cyber Attack, the maps and Spec Ops end up disappointing. The campaign itself remains a return to form for the staple Call of Duty campaign, for better or worse. Modern Warfare as a whole ends up feeling like it has the foundation for something better than it is right now, and in the months to come, it very well might be. But for now, it's just merely almost there.

    One of the best Call of Duty of all time: Insane graphics, dynamic movement, ballistics, etc. It's a masterpiece.

    Infinity Ward did really well with this one, the combat system is really well-made, a new engine that changed everything. Despite some flaws like Survival exclusive to PS4. The introductions of the new game modes, bring variety to the Multiplayer. The gun customization are insane (You can even convert your M4A1 to a deadly 9mm Submachine Gun!) help customize your play style.

Spawns are some of the worst I have ever seen, the maps are terrible too. And the cheating system? They might aswell not have announced one. All in all very very happy that I did not pay anything for it. My god I would have felt cheated if I payed for this. Campaign is pretty good, but the multiplayer is the worst multiplayer game EVER. Even Fortnite is better than Modern Warfare. It's sad, but a MW2 reboot is what they should have made. This sucks. Expand

    Simply don't buy it!
    Don't board the COD fanboi express; it won't take you anywhere pleasant ;(
    Anyone who loves this title probably didn't pay for their own copy of the game.
