    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare puts the franchise back where it needs to be. You get a wonderful campaign, team-oriented spec ops, and a variety of multiplayer options that cater to those who love large and small scale warfare.

    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is a great new start for the franchise, thanks to terrific visuals, cool new game modes and the best campaign since Black Ops. Unfortunately Spec Ops are a massive let down.

    Not as revolutionary as the technical reincarnation had us hope or fear, but it scores the most tweaks on the tried and tested formula. A strong single-player and enough choices in the multiplayer to give every type of shooter player what they want. And again: crossplay included and without season pass.

    Infinity Ward's reboot of the iconic classic doesn't surpass the original, but does a fantastic job of translating its formula into the modern era. A thrilling solo campaign alongside a robust selection of multiplayer options ensure this package is well worth a visit, even if the long-awaited return of Special Ops just about misses the mark.

    Modern Warfare makes you love the franchise all over again. With a great campaign and an excellent multiplayer to boot this is the most fun you'll have with a shooter all year. It's a shame the Spec Ops mode doesn't live up to the hype.

    This year we got a Call of Duty with an impressive single player campaign - that offers tight and immense fights for about 6 hours - along with a wealth of multiplayer modes for literally every taste. Too bad, though, that Infinity Ward tried to keep everyone satisfied thus changing the DNA of the multiplayer mode with mixed to negative results.

    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare steps it up in the pure game-feel department; its guns, its movement, its action: it all feels the best it's ever been. Even with thrilling new modes like Gunfight and the Counter-Strike-like Cyber Attack, the maps and Spec Ops end up disappointing. The campaign itself remains a return to form for the staple Call of Duty campaign, for better or worse. Modern Warfare as a whole ends up feeling like it has the foundation for something better than it is right now, and in the months to come, it very well might be. But for now, it's just merely almost there.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. This campaign is one of the most real, brutal and honest interpretation of the things that happen in modern times and I absolutely love it. I'm glad that light is shown on some of the horrific acts of war from countries like Russia. The negative reviews on here seem to be super Pro-Russia for absolutely no other reason than to just **** on a game that is needed in this day and age. Definitely worth the buy for the campaign alone! Expand

    One of the best Call of Duty of all time: Insane graphics, dynamic movement, ballistics, etc. It's a masterpiece.

    Infinity Ward did really well with this one, the combat system is really well-made, a new engine that changed everything. Despite some flaws like Survival exclusive to PS4. The introductions of the new game modes, bring variety to the Multiplayer. The gun customization are insane (You can even convert your M4A1 to a deadly 9mm Submachine Gun!) help customize your play style.

    Call of Duty Modern Warfare has a fun and enjoyable campaign but like most call of duty games it is quite short (6 hours). The multiplayerCall of Duty Modern Warfare has a fun and enjoyable campaign but like most call of duty games it is quite short (6 hours). The multiplayer gameplay has changed with a lot more people camping and it’s still too early to say whether it’s good or not because they always release new content. One thing they need to improve is the maps because in regular team death match some of them will last so long because of how big the map and it’s more than few this year. Spec ops missions are quite lacklustre won’t know but survival mode is still Fun to play if your tired of campers from multiplayer. Overall it’s fun cod game and in my opinion one of the better ones in recent years. Expand
