Graeden Manna, Staff Writer

Infinity Ward’s Call of Duty Modern Warfare is the best modern Call of Duty and it’s not even close. Officially released on October 25th, MW is the much-anticipated reboot of the beloved Modern Warfare franchise.

As you boot up the game you are greeted by a simple loading screen overlooking a war-torn field prompting you to continue. Next, you are greeted by the choices of playing campaign, Multiplayer, and Co-OP.

At the very beginning of the campaign, you witness the atrocities of terrorism. This continues throughout the campaign giving it a very grounded bleak feeling. In various points across your journey, your morals are tested and that is perhaps the best part of it, You feel for the characters.The ModernWarfare campaign overall is incredible.

Next is Multiplayer. Multiplayer is the most controversial part of this game as with most COD games. In 2017 with COD WW2 the biggest complaint was boring 3-lane maps and now we have the complete opposite of that issue. The maps are far too open with too many corners and windows where newer players can just sit in and get easy kills. However, most would consider these to be the only downsides. This game has the biggest map in Call of Duty history alongside having by far the most attachments in Call of Duty history.

This game is great to play with friends because when playing custom matches there is an unrivaled amount of customization and the same with online matches because you have always got something to work towards. The gunplay is super fun and there are many maps with many game modes to play. Spec Ops is enjoyable yet shouldn’t be considered the premiere feature of the game.

Although there are many issues with the game, we already have proof from the developers (who often keep the community updated on their Twitter accounts) that there are multiple weapons balancing changes to make the game even more enjoyable. The community has also discovered 38 leaked maps!

So far there has been an overall positive response, while the game does have issues they are being addressed. This game was is worth the buy if you are looking for a new game to play by yourself or with friends, however, it wouldn’t hurt to wait a month or so
