Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare shocked the world when it was revealed for the first time. It sold multi-millions of copies and set the bar for modern-day shooters. It had amazing online multiplayer, a gut-wrenching campaign and a fan base so loyal they bought anything emblazoned with its name on it. Now, 10 years on, it has been remastered for a new generation to enjoy and for an older generation to reminisce.
The campaign is one of the best in a modern-day shooter. It does though have a lacklustre ending where you’re lying wounded and the villain is about to shoot you, something distracts him which then gives you just enough time to kill him. This ending features exactly the same in the next two instalments as well. The campaign takes you on a globe-trotting adventure to try to stop a middle eastern coup, battling against Russian separatists and nuclear terrorists.
The campaign features one of the greatest missions of all time – All Ghillied Up. This mission tasks a much younger Captain Price in taking out a Russian Terrorist, only to get to him you have to carefully crawl through irradiated Pripyat surrounded by hundreds of heavily armoured separatists. Dogs, tanks and hidden snipers around every corner dwell in the dystopian town that was destroyed by the Chernobyl incident. A nail-biting battle on your way to complete the mission was such an enjoyable experience to relive and was just as enjoyable the second time around.
As for replaying the campaign as a whole, it was such brilliant experience to relive a wonderful single-player outing. With memorable moments that still live on in memory to this day like the dash back to the chopper after discovering the nuke, sniping Zhakeav and being the gunner of an AC-130 Gunship.
As for the multiplayer, well watch my video and find out:
