    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.

    This is a great game despite what others may say. Cod finally went back boots on the ground, what made the series great. Leave the future crapThis is a great game despite what others may say. Cod finally went back boots on the ground, what made the series great. Leave the future crap to Destiny and Titanfall. Everyone wanted more realism and they delivered. To everyone complaining about the campaign stop being pc. It’s a game you know what your gonna get before you play. I for one am glad to see the bigger maps. It’s like people look for a reason to complain about something. Expand

    Ok bravo for the campaign. The rest is garbage. Multiplayer is so slow+maps are huge. No wonder people like this game, it is a camping game,Ok bravo for the campaign. The rest is garbage. Multiplayer is so slow+maps are huge. No wonder people like this game, it is a camping game, developers made enough camping spots to fit everyone. This game lost the call of duty adrenaline and pace identity. Uninstalling now. Waiting for the next balck ops. Until then, you can keep your garbage. Cheers.
    P.S: what about kill confirmed, to fast and skillful for the campers community ?
