Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is the definition of a decent game. It’s fun in short doses and will keep you amused for just long enough to make you feel like you got your [money]’s worth. That said, it’s definitely a step back from last year’s Black Ops III, which impressed in almost every regard, and despite being packed with features, modes, and more futuristic fanfare than any Call of Duty before it, a world of laser guns and space battles might not be where the franchise’s time is best spent.
Black Ops III is a return to form for the Call of Duty franchise, and two of the three main components are as good as they've ever been. The story mode remains a disappointment, but there's so much content and endless customization packed into the competitive and zombie modes that you'll have no shortage of things to do for many months to come.
