    Even after ten years the campaign is as engrossing as ever while the multiplayer focuses on classic gun battles on huge maps. Unfortunately this is not yet available as a stand-alone.

    Apart from the lighting, I can’t really complain about anything. The performance is solid and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has never looked better. Just our of curiosity I went back to the PC version and this remaster looks so much better even on consoles. The developers need to be applauded. For those of you who were wondering if Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered was worth it, I can tell you without a shred of doubt that it definitely is.

    The campaign is still just as epic as before. The multiplayer is tremendous and offers a whole different challenge to its sibling, Infinite Warfare, with a much different way of approaching the game and your tactics inside it. And it looks terrific, especially if you look at it nine years ago first.

    A great remaster that can be considered almost a remake. It may be too old on its gameplay basics, and doesn't have the deep customization options of its older brothers, but still manages to entertain either on the campaign or on the multiplayer side of the game.

    Infinity Ward's seminal Call of Duty gets the revamp it deserves; Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered gives the 2007 shooter a new lease of life, enabling newcomers to see what all the fuss was about and veterans the chance to relive a classic. The best Call of Duty game just got even better.

    Put simply, Modern Warfare is no longer modern — though the combat and, in some ways, the action-movie story at its foundation are ageless, its level design and lack of campaign progression reveal its true age. But it’s not outdated, it’s classic, and the considerable effort that has gone into improving the models, textures, and effects have enhanced it enough that playing through the campaign again was rewarding.

    MW1 and 3 are my personal favorites of the series, and its nice to see them redone. The thing I live for is MP games, and MW1 and 3 had incredible HUGE depth to them, in spite of some game idiosyncrasies. I could never pin down how to build my classes and they'd always change. I had the sapper class, detect emplaced explosives and blow them up, use RPGs to clear out rooms or shoot down helis, or hit deadspace foxholes, the machine gunner class which I LOVED going 30-1 k/d with, having a competent team close the net and funnel respawns and live opposing team members into kill zones, the field engineer, setting up explosive traps or other helpful tools while controlling flanks with any old assault rifle, etc ad infinitum.

    I could've played the original MW1 and MW3 for another 5 years each MP if the lobbies hadn't gone to hell.

    Raven Software's 2016 remaster of "Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare" is one of the very best HD ports. Like in Capcom's HD version of "ResidentRaven Software's 2016 remaster of "Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare" is one of the very best HD ports. Like in Capcom's HD version of "Resident Evil", graphics have been considerably spruced up to resemble today's current-gen titles. Subtle changes have also been made to the campaign, while multiplayer has been updated with modern FPS tropes such as supply drops. Gamers who have played recent COD titles, but have never experienced COD 4 are in for a surprise. The pace is slower than most recent FPS games due to the lack of jetpacks or any kind of futuristic gear. I would even say multiplayer in "Modern Warfare" is more comparable to "Counter Strike" than to any game in the "Black Ops" series.

    I have to mention that the Tom Clancy-esque story mode in MW is one of the best campaigns in any FPS. While it now feels slightly dated, it is still a masterclass in level design. In this remaster, both the lighting and audio have been amplified to solid effect. And unlike the original game, a few modifiers have been included (they need to be unlocked) to keep the replayability factor high. Long time fans of "Call of Duty 4" should appreciate these new additions and improvements to the story mode. As far as the multiplayer is concerned, it has been left mainly untouched. You can now unlock more gun paints and badges than ever before. However, the genre has rapidly evolved in the past 9 years, so what was once groundbreaking is now less impressive. Certain players may feel underwhelmed with the online play.

    Overall though, "Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare" is still a classic and this remaster is a very good one. So if you're a fan of "Titanfall" or "Battlefield 4", but have yet to play COD 4, then make sure to play this version. The original set the template for modern day shooters and this update adds a nice graphical polish and some new multiplayer options. I'd rate it with an 8.3 out of 10.

    Great graphics. Fun gameplay, for the most part. But it's dragged down by things like supply drops and is very easy to get bored with.

    So the Graphics have been given a major improvement and micro transactions have been added for no other reason than give us money. How is itSo the Graphics have been given a major improvement and micro transactions have been added for no other reason than give us money. How is it possible that hit detection is worse in this game than the original? Not to mention you have to buy another money grab of a Call of Duty game just to be able to play this.

    Money hungrey corporations have ruined gaming. It'll be the last money they see from me.
