FUN: Multiplayer is better

Call of Duty

Modern warfare is no longer modern — though the combat and, in some ways, the action-movie story at its foundation are ageless — its level design and lack of campaign progression has revealed its true age.

But it’s not outyds, it’s classic, and the effort that has gone into improving the models, textures and effects have enhanced it enough that playing through the campaign again is rewarding.

Multiplayer also benefits from the graphics upgrade, and its refreshingly old-school pace is fun and explosive.

It might not have the same effect it did the first time around, but it works as both a great embodiment of what shooters used to be and one that still plays well.
