- Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has received some of the highest reviews from reputable review sites, however, despite these positive reviews the game has issues that players cannot ignore.
Call of Duty Modern Warfare was expected with a lot of hype. The game takes place in the modern age. Call of Duty games has always been known for its fast mechanics. Modern Warfare is no different. However, Activision and Infinity Ward are crossing for the first time to Battlefield’s zone with Ground War. This mode is much larger than the other game modes that CoD offered us in the past. But, there are some problems with it. The map is large enough, although currently, killstreaks are running around everywhere. This makes the game an arcade shooter rather than a tactical one. Every second there is a UAV and you are always on the map.
However, this is not the only problem that CoD has. Currently, the spawns are extremely troublesome. When you are spawning, there is a chance of you getting spawn camped. Call of Duty Modern Warfare needs to fix this immediately, otherwise, this will hurt the game in the long run. The good news is there are fixes coming for the game. Dead Silence is getting fixed after the community backlash on the first day. It was such an easy perk to use with a lot of benefits.
Currently, the game has enough weapons. Of course, we do not know how many weapons are kept for the DLC’s but this time we are expecting a lot more coming. The recent rumors of free-to-play Battle Royale mode might be coming to CoD might be a reason for several weapons getting released. According to leakers, the Call of Duty Battle Royale mode will be released around January 2020. The mode will feature more players this time and it is being developed by a different team than Activision. During the early play, streamers bombarded the event with Battle Royale questions however currently there is no news on it.
The map design is criticized by the players they are stating that several of the maps are unlike CoD. The missions for guns are actually trying to force players to camp a lot.
If CoD releases a free-to-play Battle Royale they will be direct competitors to Fortnite and this can be interesting. As both parties are offering a cross-play ability the players will be choosing one of these two. Of course Call of Duty has a long-standing pro scene as well. We are sure that they will take that into account as well.
The release of the game was ok. Even though several players stated that they were unable to access the game in the first couple of hours. But they fixed the server issues relatively fast and Call of Duty was available to play.
Regardless of these problems, Call of Duty Modern Warfare is a great addition to the series and for the first time in a long time, we are seeing an actual effort from the developers. We do hope that this continues.
