3 Up, 3 Down – Call of Duty Modern Warfare Remastered Edition
The single player campaign of COD: Modern Warfare Remastered is out for everyone who pre-ordered Infinite Warfare on PS4, and let me tell you, it does not disappoint! While there are a few areas that could be improved, or added upon, so far it is quite impressive. Below are the three best and the three worst parts of Call of Duty Modern Warfare Remastered. Enjoy!
The Love List
Graphics and Sound
The most noticeable differences between the original game and COD: Modern Warfare Remastered are the sound and graphics. The graphics are infinitely more crisp which can be seen from the changes in the lighting to the animation and everything in between. These changes highlight the work Activision has put into giving an old generation game new life. The graphics are top notch and the detail given to everything is fantastic. The sound has been improved as well, which can be seen from the fact that you can now hear the reloading of your weapons. Although this may not seem like a big deal compared to all of the newest generation gameplay we have become accustomed to, these changes in sound make the campaign a more enjoyable experience overall.
Before you begin any of the campaign missions you must complete a training level which goes through the controls and gives you a chance to get a feel for COD: Modern Warfare Remastered. A benefit to this training section is that it recommends what your skill level should be for the rest of the game. If you are a bit rusty when it comes to COD, this may be just what you need to get back into the swing of things. On the flip side, if you are a well oiled COD killing machine, this may not be the most fun, however, it does showcase some game mechanics, preparing you for what is to come for the rest of the game.
Back to Basics Gameplay
Now I know one of the biggest debates of the Call of Duty franchise has to do with whether the games should take a futuristic approach or remain a realistic imitation of war, and before I continue, let me state that if executed properly, both can be amazing. After playing with the exo movement of Advanced Warfare and the wall running in Black Ops 3, COD: Modern Warfare Remastered is a breath of fresh air. This is not to say the extra movement isn’t great, but without many frills, COD: Modern Warfare Remastered brings the franchise back to the basics. Without the added movement complexities, the game stays on the ground and centres around killing the enemy, plain and simple.
