    Modern Warfare returns the saga to its best moments, something it needed, and brings us one of the best franchise campaigns. But it's still the same old COD.

    One of the best single player campaigns ever seen in a shooter and a multiplayer renewed in all its components make Call of Duty: Modern Warfare a must have videogame.

    Modern Warfare offers an intense, violent and raw campaign accompanied by a leisurely, tactical, and methodical multiplayer. A new era is born.

    Ultimately, I came away from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare confused about how to feel about it. I’m always down for some Call of Duty campaign nonsense and was super looking forward to it after Black Ops 4 skipped it entirely. When I started this story, I was stoked. It felt great to play, looked better than any previous entry, and seemed to have some real dramatic ambition. But then the story got going, and it was less thematically coherent than a Tom Clancy game. Both the campaign and (currently divisive) multiplayer add a lot of new angles and depth to the usual Call of Duty experience. Unfortunately, that all comes at the cost of a good story, and the last Modern Warfare had a great story.

    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare’s varied gameplay modes and excellent gunplay suggest the series is headed in a promising direction.

    While Modern Warfare certainly has its issues, I’m having a really terrific time with it.

    Both Call of Duty: Modern Warfare’s Campaign and Multiplayer may have some issues, but generally, I had a good time with each mode.

    Ignore the bad reviews it’s just people that are offended by the campaign I take it. People need to realize it’s just a game. I haven’t playedIgnore the bad reviews it’s just people that are offended by the campaign I take it. People need to realize it’s just a game. I haven’t played campaign but I have the multiplayer. It’s freaking amazing it’s more tactical and a little more slow pace which I love. 10/10 Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. It was a prequel to the original Modern Warfare. The end was pretty cool to be honest and I liked the game. Made me want to play the originals all over again. And I wouldn’t mind MW2 and MW3 to see a remaster. Game was tough to watch at times. Anything with kids being hurt is tough. Wanted to everything I could to protect them. Some more choice options in these games would be neatZ sneaking around was cool too! Expand

    Mediocre story with an absolutely broken multiplayer. Caters to campers as well as contains bugs that completely breaks gameplay and leveling.
