REVIEW: Modern Warfare is the freshest COD in years

After heading to space, going back to the Second World War and even ditching a story mode in 2018’s Black Ops 4, Modern Warfare is a return to a more classic Call of Duty.

Developer Infinity Ward‘s reboot takes what made the franchise interesting with the original series while changing enough to make it feel fresh in 2019.

This isn’t a simple rehash of earlier Modern Warfare games, either. Where 2007’s release was, by and large, a tale of good versus evil in the wake of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, today’s Modern Warfare is one that deals with the aftermath of such conflicts, inspired by the situation in Syria and the rise of extremist factions like the Islamic State.

It wants to show that global conflict isn’t black and white, kicking off with a terror attack in Central London and going on to discuss the price of fighting for one’s freedom and what lines they are willing to cross in that pursuit.
