Finally, Call of Duty is Back to modern warfare because this futuristic nonsense was getting old to me and a lot of fellow gamers. With the newest installment
Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare is a prequel and a half reboot to the Modern Warfare franchise all in one. The game takes place before the events of Call Of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, but since this is a reboot of the entire story, developer Infinity Ward decided to alter and expand the story how they seemed fit making it a freshly squeezed version.
The campaign starts off in Urzikstan and is a completely make-believe land. The whole game is fictional including heroes, villains, and events, but you do end up in real places like in the UK. It does feel like the politics mentioned in this game are going on today so it feels like this could be based on actual events, but it isn’t. The story is entertaining and exactly what this franchise needed. You start off as Captain Price which is the same character from the original Modern Warfare as well as others, but most are new. The writing is saucy and keeps you wanting more. It will satisfy most gamers. The cast play their roles on par with any quality TV show, and the visuals are just amazing. The game’s two primary playable characters are Alex an American CIA operative, and Kyle Garrick, a British soldier in the SAS. You’ll play as freedom fighter Farah Karim but only in very short instances. It is three factions teamed up to go against a typical terrorist group of course because we don’t negotiate with terrorist. It’s the basic players partake in missions with an objective which of course never goes as planned. Some are typical for a Call of Duty game. most require players to go in and kill the bad guy by themselves, but many missions are designed to remind you that war isn’t a box of chocolates. But is it because you never know what you’re going to get. As I completed the Campaign I felt that tension lifted due to the realism of the levels. It definitely has a Hollywood action-filled feeling and leaves you with an explosive campaign.
Most of the game modes are back with an addition of some new ones like Gunfight 2v2 and Ground war which is 64 players. Ground war is an awesome addition but is a watered-down version of Battlefields, but the addition has it to where I would consider playing longterm. The rest of Modern Warfare’s multiplayer range from great additions with in-depth weapon customization, to mediocre, but typical cod maps. The mediocre maps make spawn camping a problem like always and the removal of map voting can get frustrating when you don’t care to play certain maps.
