    Fans of Call of Duty shouldn't have had to wait this long for the definitive edition of a classic.

    Even now, Modern Warfare is pushing boundaries, just in newer ways. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered sets a standard that shames other so-called ‘remastered’ titles.

    It´s been almost 10 years from its release, and Modern Warfare campaign still feels great, multiplayer design works well and visual improvement is enough to compete against modern shooters.

    Call of Duty Modern Warfare Remastered’s campaign might feel outdated by today’s standards, but its multiplayer remains as addictive and fun as ever.

    Modern Warfare Remastered on the PS4 is one of the best remasters in recent memory. It's a game worth having - especially if we played the original only when it came out or (what's even worse) we haven't at all. And when the multiplayer issues are resolved and the game becomes a stand-alone product, it'll be great.

    A lot of love and care went into Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered, and I hope other developers (including some of Activision's own studios, I'm looking at you Marvel Ultimate Alliance and Prototype) take note.

    The game itself remains unchanged and while an excellent game in it’s day, COD: MWR often shows its true age with animations looking just a little clunky by today’s standards and a few small missteps that were present in the original which could have, and should have been amended in this new and improved version.

    Modern Warfare Remastered is a very well done remake of the 2007 classic.

    Activision hired developer Raven Software to create a remake of Infinity Ward's Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare to be bundles with the infamous Infinite Warfare. The results are what you'd expect, except a few minor (but maybe major) details.

    Modern Warfare Remasted is mostly Call of Duty 4 with better graphics, as a result of Infinity Ward upgrading their engine for over a decade.

    The campaign pretty much left the same, but with a few more references to future installments based on achievements.

    The main drive for most players, the multiplayer, weapon statistics are made the same, and the same for map design. The main problem is Activision allowed Raven Software to sell Downloadable Content through new microtransactions. This obviously shows the money hungry part of the company. Although all DLC can be earned for free (except the Variety Map Pack, which was made $5 more expensive) is turns this remaster into a re-imagining.

    I will admit Raven Software did a phenomenal job remaking the game, Activision proved they're mostly in the industry for money. Pre-DLC I'd give the game a 9.2/10, but now I'll give a 7.6/10. Solid remaster, unbelievable company.

    Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare was considered by many, fans and critics alike, to be one of the best Call of Duty games ever made. ItCall of Duty 4: Modern Warfare was considered by many, fans and critics alike, to be one of the best Call of Duty games ever made. It invigorated a multiplayer base that put itself on the map in the shooter market as a force to be reckon with. It's story was also quite good and offered a in-depth look at global conflicts through the eyes of a soldier. With a 9 and 10 score from many, it was a superb game of its time.

    But that time has changed. In the current days of triple-AAA gaming, Call of Duty's publisher's Activision have put the game to ransom on their latest game, Call of Duty Infinite Warfare, in order for people to purchase the remastered version. A very anti-consumer move would be an understatement. Despite this shameful attitude, I still bought both of the games so I could see how good COD4 has stood the test of time.

    Pros:
    1) Graphics have always been criticized in Call of Duty because Activision has a very lazy attitude of updating its engine with better tech that Unreal and Havok have outbeat in for years. It is refreshing to see COD4 Remastered looks absolutely stunning and the textures are nicely done.
    2) Combat is smooth and for game that is almost a decade old, it still feels reliable, quick and satisfying than its original version.
    3) (The good side of the remastered)- having to fight alongside Price, pilot a AC-130 and all the memorable moments in the campaign mixed with the multiplayer bringing back the fun of competitive gaming is really nice and glad it is (mostly) the same old deal with a new coat of paint.

    Cons:
    1) Microtransactions are in a game that is almost a decade old. What a terrible and outrageous thing to even do. It's bad enough Activision wants you to spend 80-100 bucks to play COD4 again but they have the audacity to put game skins and cosmetics in a game that never had it to begin with. It is extremely greedy and absolutely horrid that it makes anyone rating this higher than a 8 absolutely blind to corporate greed and anti-consumer practice.
    2) (Bad part of the remastered)- I think of this similar to the Zebra Striped gum I use to chew and spit out quickly as a kid; It is the same old COD with updated visuals. You will like the nostalgic throwback and feel like COD is back, but yet learn that there are more interesting titles out there (even remasters too) that are far better than this. You will get bored or burn out on it faster than you think. Play a few matches online, sure feels good. After awhile, it feels mundane and shows how classic does not always age well in modern day gaming.
    3) COD's fanbase. The fanbase is infamous for being a series of trolls, children and deviants that will often play loud music, yell trash talk obscenities and say the whole book of cusswords until the world ends. No matter what COD is made now, it will always have that group. The original version was just starting, so it was low-key and tolerable to where it wasn't a nuisance as it is now. As long as this is an issue, I refuse to give the multiplayer a better reception, because even being in a party and getting called terrible things by a man child is no excuse.

    COD 4 Remastered is a cautionary tale of anti-consumerism, nostalgia stained by greed, and modern issues in gaming that does not make it better once it is laid out. If you blindly buy this, you are letting it still continue. Play and enjoy the game, but do not expect much that a new game would be better to invest it (or try).
