Call of Duty Modern Warfare | Review Roundup

November 26, 2019

call of duty modern warfare review roundup


Well this is one of those games where if you like the series you're probably already highly invested into the latest release. With its cross platform play, Modern Warfare doesn't force you to choose only friends who own the same console. You can play with your real friends no matter what console (or PC) they're playing on! 

This review round up is for those people who are on the fence about picking up the latest addition to this addicting franchise. If you're someone who has already bought the game or someone who has no intention of doing so this might just be a nice read to see what others are thinking. 

 

Reviews

PC gamer 8/10

"Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has sold itself as a return to the setting that "started it all." It’s a snappy marketing line that tugs the nostalgic strings of fans who remember the magic of 2007, and it’s not entirely misleading. The warfare is once again modern and, yes, Captain Price is still your likeable squad dad. Yet it's Modern Warfare's moments of unfamiliarity that impressed me—rebuilt weapon handling, ambitious new multiplayer modes, and characters that aren’t the cookie-cutter operatives we've seen in the last decade."
Morgan Park, PC gamer.com

"The likes of Team Deathmatch and Domination are present and accounted for, alongside newcomers such as Cyber Attack. The latter mode operates in a similar manner to Search and Destroy, with teams delivering a bomb to a specific point on the map. It’s a thrilling, round-based affair that’s excellent fun, using the reworked gunplay to its advantage to create some genuinely fierce firefights."
Jade King, trustedreviews.com

Digital Chumps 9.2/10


"Call of Duty: Modern Warfare looks to bring everything back, and then some. It re-established the game campaign, which is a healthy five hours, and put together a cornucopia of multi-player modes that certainly will contain a bit of something for everyone. On top of that, Infinity Ward also threw in a co-op mode that is tough as nails and will probably be streaming everywhere once this game launches tomorrow."
Nathaniel Stevens, digitalchumps.com

 

 

Gamespot 7/10


"The pitfalls of Spec Ops don't detract from what Modern Warfare does well, though. Realism mode is an excellent addition to the slate, and although not all the new multiplayer modes are great, Gunfight and the Night Vision playlist are refreshing standouts. And while the campaign ends up playing it safe in the end, it's still a memorable one, and it lays a strong foundation for where the Modern Warfare series could go from here."
Kallie Plagge, gamespot.com

 

 

Roundup 8.2/10

So all in all it seems like the back to basics approach of the latest Call of Duty has been a big hit! With an average score of 8.2/10 it's tough to be too negative about it. From the campaign to the cooperative play it seems like Activision has published yet another hit. Remember that with cross platform play you'll be able to play online with all your friends! (Except for Nintendo)

 

 

TLDR

Call of Duty Modern Warfare overall is considered a great game with an average score of 8.2/10. This iteration of the game brings players back to basics with a lot less futuristic technology involved. If you were a fan of the classic Call of Duty games you'll likely enjoy this one as well!
