Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare which got reviewed here isn’t the only Call of Duty game you get this year. Activision got you covered with another Call of Duty game which is Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered and it’s been developed by Raven Software, Certain Affinity, Beenox and High Moon Studios. The game isn’t sold standalone, but it comes with Legacy and Deluxe Editions of Call of Duty Infinite Warfare as in the time of writing. It’s a remaster of the 2007 Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare which got developed by Infinity Ward. The game earned high critical reception and it deserved it. It is considered one of the best first person shooters ever made and it’s one of the games that made the gaming industry develop first-person shooters like it.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered brings the most memorable Campaign, Multiplayer, and the Arcade Mode, but with sweet changes such as great graphics, textures, and new additions.
The Campaign mode is one of the most memorable ever to any gamer who played the game, there shouldn’t be introductions to it, you just need to play it if you haven’t already. You play as a member of S.A.S and U.S.M.C. in order to take out high terrorist targets to serve peace in the world. One of the most memorable missions is ”All Ghillied Up” which you play as Captain Price and it takes place in Ghost Town of Pripyat, Ukraine, and your mission is to kill your high-target. All of the missions from the original are remastered and it includes some additions to make it more engaging than it already is, for example in the mission ”Shock and Awe” when the nuclear strike hits while you are on the helicopter, your player tries to grab your mate who is about to fell down the chopper. There are a few additions like that, which weren’t on the original.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered comes with the Multiplayer as well. It’s exactly as you know it, but with a few changes. You can play with 10 original Multiplayer Maps ( the other 6 will be added for free via an Update on December). The original had 10 prestiges, but now the remaster bring 20, so you will have to grind a lot to reach that prestige, but it’s a good thing as it’s fun. It’s exactly as you remember the game, but with new sounds for the weapons and the remastered maps which look gorgeous. For the first time in Multiplayer of Modern Warfare, you will be able to have a kill-cam in the matches and callsigns and emblems, and new camos for your weapons to show-off at your opponents. There are some new Multiplayer modes in the game as well such as Kill Confirmed. The Arcade Mode is making a comeback as well which requires you to beat the single-player missions on a timer and you have a few lives for survival, complete them and you may see yourself on the leaderboards. Raven Software promised to support the game in a variety of ways so we will see what does that mean in the future.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered, is a fantastic game and it’s a true remaster which translates into better UI, menus, high-quality textures and graphics, the audio is fantastic, and some new animations. It’s exactly as you remember it, but only better!
Activision, Infinity Ward, Raven Software, Certain Affinity, Beenox and High Moon Studios did a fantastic job this year as they brought Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered in one tiny package! Call of Duty and first-person shooter fans should not miss it.
I give Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered a 10/10 because it’s simply amazing and it’s definitely worth a new replay with those new great additions.
