Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare®
The original Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare® series has been the fan-favorite Call of Duty for over five years. It combined an awesome single-player campaign with a variety of multiplayer options. Activision listened to its fans and decided to reboot the series with a new installment. Meet Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare®! It’s called the same, but it’s a brand new thing.
Graphics and Sound 10/10
If you ask me to explain the word ‘epic’ using the titles of video games, I would definitely say Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare®. The quality of visuals in this $60 game is a step ahead of all other shooters on the AAA video game market. It looks incredibly realistic and impresses with the depth of detalization and animation quality. The epic dynamic electro-orchestral soundtrack makes the whole thing even more immersive. Compositions by Sarah Schachner perfectly highlight every important moment and atmosphere in the campaign mode and support the flaming multiplayer soul during every session.
As the game is available for consoles and PC, the control setup is optional. You can either play using your PC keyboard and mouse or connect any PC compatible gamepad, including the ones for PS4 and Xbox One. As usual, the responsiveness of Call of Duty controls is perfect. Every weapon feels like a real one, despite the absence of recoil. The layout of the buttons hasn’t changed over the last decade, so you won’t spend too much time getting accustomed to it.
Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare® is split into 2 general sections – the single-player and the multiplayer mode. The first one tells a new combat story, featuring good old CoD characters. You will pass through plenty of missions with mindblowing visuals and extremely dangerous military events all over the globe. Even if you don’t expect this newborn Call of Duty to impress you, it will. The screenplay quality is also beyond expectations and looks even better than the majority of action movies of the last 5 years.
However, the multiplayer mode is even more exciting. This time, Activision presented multiple new online modes to keep up with modern free-to-play trends. And don’t worry about in-game purchases as they don’t affect the gameplay in any way. Finally, the Zombies mode is also present and feels better than ever.
Lasting Appeal 10/10
While giving up playing previous chapters of Call of Duty was quite obvious after passing the campaign for many players, Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare® won’t let you go. Due to a wide range of new online modes, you can keep discovering new features of the gameplay for a very long time.
Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare® is literally the best realistic shooter of 2019 and it’s still hot. Activision created a perfectly balanced game that features all the things that you loved about the original Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare and introduces numerous new features that will make you hang on the edge of your seat until the last bullet.
