    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 But it’s not outdated, it’s classic, and the considerable effort that has gone into improving the models, textures, and effects have enhanced it enough that playing through the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.

    Activision clearly knows that there is an entire generation of gamers that is eagerly awaiting the return to boots-on-the-ground COD. ModernActivision clearly knows that there is an entire generation of gamers that is eagerly awaiting the return to boots-on-the-ground COD. Modern Warfare pays tribute to one of the best FPS games of the last decade and delivers well. Overall visuals are fantastic and the sound design makes the game come to life. The release of six more maps for free was a welcome Christmas gift as well and easily prolongs gameplay by a few more months. Now Activision, please take note and make the next iteration of the franchise as great as your first. Expand

    Call of Duty Modern Warfare Remastered
    Beautiful and Dull
    Modern Warfare remasteredd is a remastered version of 2007s Call of Duty 4
    This now 10 year old game has been polished and looks and feels like it fits in with modern games today.
    This game features of course a multiplayer mode that is easily the most fun mode of this game, featuring your standard call of duty competitive modes as well as a mode I haven’t seen in a call of duty game before prop hunt where you switch sides being a prop and hiding and being the team searching for the props
    though this online multiplayer does add in a loot box system for the modern day to unlock items such as skins
    I didn’t find maps to be anything special, but as of right now this is the purest form of simple gunplay offered from a call of duty on current gen consoles, so if that’s what youre searching for you wont be disappointed as shooting is just as smooth and fun as its always been
    Speaking of not special though, I havnt played every call of duty game to date, but out of the 6 I have played.. this 6 hours campaign is easily the dullest ive played through…
    its generic and uneventful throughout..
    you play through the perspective of 6 different characters, though if I didn’t tell you this you would have no clue, as every character and mission feels and looks nearly identical throughout
    This campaign takes place in the middle east and Russia as youre dealing with both a civil war as well as taking out targets responsible for the execution of a middle eastern president..
    The level design here is boring
    I didn’t play the original call of duty 4 but I had so much dejavu playing this game like ive played it 1 million times before
    that’s how uninspired this games design is
    everything was so predictable, no cool set pieces or cool moments like call of duty is known for today..
    just your typical linear
    go forward and shoot things, and search houses that you know your target isn’t in but do it any way just cause… until you get to the end and climb in a helicopter
    ive never been so bored playing through a first person shooter campaign in my life…
    theres just nothing special here….
    its mediocre
    For its time Call of Duty 4 may have been a great and innovative game…
    But today Modern Warfare Remastered is a collection of a mediocre shooter campaign and an okay competitive mode…
    youre better off just waiting down the line for call of duty world war 2 for whats sure to be a much more complete package
    I give Call of Duty Modern Warfare Remastered
    a 6/10
