Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Reviews
The rise of new properties, like Titanfall and Overwatch , combined with resurgent properties, like Destiny or Battlefield, make it hard to justify the shrinking number of new ideas Call of Duty. Those who purchased Infinite Warfare on day one may not relate to anything in this article. But those with less fondness for the franchise, or just expecting IW to at least match the quality of Advanced Warfare or Black Ops 3, should probably turn their attention elsewhere.
A beautiful action movie that punishes improvisation, with under-populated multiplayer that can’t compete with a nine-year-old game.
As a whole package, all the praise should be going toward the single player experience, and I'd never thought I'd say that about a Call of Duty game in a long time. But in all honestly, it’s true. As for the multiplayer, it makes for an incredibly mundane and subpar experience that almost parodies itself. Completely making it very difficult to recommend the game as a whole.
A series showing its age by refusing to evolve
Call of Duty Infinite Warfare is a decent game. The campaign is very good. That being said, t’s the weakest first person shooting game of this year.
At its worst, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is mediocre, and was quite often enjoyable during my time to play, but ultimately fails to fulfill the potential of a truly original Call of Duty title.
The solid story mode and the welcome modifications to the zombie mode saved the game from falling apart. Despite the great variety of characters in multiplayer mode, It still has many and big flaws that prevents its from being an entertaining experience. If you usually buy Call of Duty for the story, then don’t hesitate to buy this one. Otherwise there are better options in the meantime.

As it stands, Infinite Warfare is a mixed affair. The single-player is entertaining enough to keep well worn gameplay mechanics from getting stale, while the multiplayer and monetisation model are glaring points of concern.
Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare occasionally rubs elbows with the best moments of its predecessors, but too much tedium and half-baked multiplayer make this one hard to recommend.
At the highest points, Call of Duty has evoked the flavors of films like Sicario. They show you the shape of things, and they present a messy world that soldiers make their way through. Sadly, the narrative of Infinite Warfare is closer to something like White House Down, a series of black and white tropes that merely tell us the same stuff that we knew already: we’re good, the enemies are bad, and we can murder the world into the shape we want it to be.
'Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare' delivers one of the best campaign stories in the series history
If there's ever been a polarising game, then it's Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. The campaign is a whopping amount of fun, and the addition of space combat is a large part of that. Still, there's a distinct lack of progress in both Zombies (as fun as it can be) and Multiplayer that damages the game's replay value, and then there's the unacceptable implementation of microtransactions. The single player may be stellar, but the multiplayer has come crashing down.
The latest instalment in the shooter series tries out some new ideas, including zero gravity combat, but it is held back by well-worn conventions
This Legacy Edition package contains the most Call of Duty Activision's ever compiled, but the quality of each individual piece is so all over the map that it's still hard to recommend.
Gamers on a budget can pick up the base game for Infinite Warfare at a reduced cost, however Modern Warfare Remastered is not included. Infinite Warfare is far from groundbreaking, however it's unequivocally a marked improvement from prior games. There's certainly more than enough content, it's just a matter of how familiar it feels to you.
Overall this package feels like a typical Call of Duty title that's once again gotten out of hand and has completely forgotten what once made the series so addicting.
Call of Duty Infinite Warfare is the most disappointing multiplayer shooter I’ve played in recent memory because it has too many poorly balanced mechanics and systems to create an enjoyable arcade shooter experience
Those looking to jump right back into a tight, predictable multiplayer experience will find exactly that with Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. A lack of focus overall puts this year’s outing in the driver’s seat over the shark, but Zombies and some saving graces in the campaign keep this from being a total loss.
Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is very much like Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate in that it’s a promising show of energy for a series that desperately needs a break. Despite alternating studios and the claim this game took Infinity Ward three years to make, the backbone of this series is tired and needs a considerable rest.
