Perhaps the Ultimate Call of Duty?
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is the sixteenth addition to the long running Call of Duty series and released at the end of 2019. The game started development in 2016 by Infinity Ward and shows off a new game engine that allowed for better graphics than the previous Call of Duty title by Infinity Ward: Infinite Warfare. Does Call of Duty: Modern Warfare live up to its numerous awards and over billion dollars in total revenue? Let’s take a look.
A Narrative Style We Know and Love
Captain Price was retconned for this Modern Warfare title to take on another plot that involves yet another terrorist organization based out of the Middle East. Of course, it wouldn’t be a Call of Duty game without making some morally gray or rather morally comprehensible decisions. The name of the country involved in the game might be make-believe, but they made it seem as realistic as they possibly could.
Gaming in a Better Way
Night vision has always been hit-or-miss with these types of war games. It seems it has always been so restrictive and nothing like what it should be due to graphical limitations. However, in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, night vision gameplay seems to be as close to the genuine article as we could realistically get in a video game. The focus on campaign gives us a nice break from endless grinds that modern games are so fond of, and the open-ended multiplayer maps are also a nice addition to replayability.
CGI Becomes Reality
Unoriginal storytelling aside, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is one of the better looking titles in the series due to the fact that they’re using a new gaming engine that mixes beautiful cinematics into the gameplay. In fact, the player moves seamlessly from cinematic into gameplay and visa versa. The barrier to fiction is switched off and the graphics make the game a very immersive cinematic experience.
Modern Warfare released with very few bugs and that’s a good thing for such a big game. You’re going to have an amazing time playing it! There may be moments when you’re going to feel like you’ve already played this before, as there’s not too much variation from previous titles, but you’re going to find yourself immersed in the next-generation graphics that looks to hold the Call of Duty franchise off until its next installment!
If you’re curious as to the cast of this game, there are some pretty famous people in it! Don’t miss the cast of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare!
