Modern Warfare Remastered brings a significant graphical upgrade to the classic shooter.
One of the most influential video games of all time gets the remaster it deserves, and is still impressively entertaining after all these years.
Right now not every map is accessible, as the plan is to have several content drops throughout the holiday season until it's feature complete. While that's not ideal, especially since you're forced into buying Infinite Warfare on top, there's still more than enough here to keep you busy until that time comes. A lot of love and care went into Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered, and I hope other developers (including some of Activision's own studios, I'm looking at you Marvel Ultimate Alliance and Prototype) take note.
It’s still excellently well-paced and doesn’t linger in one spot for too long, wedging various set pieces between the usual corridor shootouts.
A great remaster that can be considered almost a remake. It may be too old on its gameplay basics, and doesn't have de deep customization options of its older brothers, but still manages to entertain either on the campaign or on the multiplayer side of the game.

Fans of Call of Duty shouldn't have had to wait this long for the definitive edition of a classic.
They don't make them like this anymore. Modern Warfare Remastered has received the treatment it deserves and is an incredible boxed extra for Infinite Warfare
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered updates the FPS classic admirably, but its pricing scheme and missing maps keep it from reaching its true potential.
Ultimately, Call of Duty Modern Warfare Remastered might be the best remaster I’ve ever played. Everything is updated and beautiful, without losing a single thing long-time fans loved about the original. If you’ve ever wanted to see where the online multiplayer craze started, this is it – and it holds up amazingly well.
Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare has a lofty reputation, and aside from some telltale signs of age, it remains thoroughly impressive even today. This game remains a legend to be revered for its grounded, focused gameplay that will scratch an itch for anyone longing for simpler, purer shooters. Modern Warfare Remastered celebrates this legacy with updated visuals and sound that really go above and beyond the call of duty, sprucing up an old care package for a more modern age to near-perfection.
If the old-style gameplay and a little rust on the narrative devices does not scare you, Modern Warfare Remastered could be a good alternative to the most reknowned shooter of this year, hiding behind a decade of history a fun and quick gameplay.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered, at its most well-executed, is a grueling slice of a very real nightmare.
Modern Warfare Remastered is a near-perfect remaster. The developer has fiddled with things only when absolutely necessary, and though I do wish some of the multiplayer perks had been tweaked or removed altogether, I can understand why they have been left alone. Just be sure to brace yourself for the rapid time-to-kill, the frustrating deaths at the hands of un-counterable grenades, and the permanently active enemy UAVs. Get past all of that, and you’ll see the Modern Warfare magic that sparked huge changes for first-person shooters and pushed them to the forefront, becoming the industry’s powerhouses.
Raven Software has set a high bar here. Not only is Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered faithful to the original, but it gives it a fresh coat of paint that makes it look just as good as any modern PS4 game.
The decision to only release MWR with purchases of the upcoming Infinite Warfare and the apparent intent on never making it available as a stand alone game appears to be a desperate cash grab. This sales model either assumes that every COD 4 fan has been a dedicated franchise devotee for the past nine years which is most certainly not the case, or it hopes that hardcore COD 4 fans will be willing to shell out just to play the remastered version of their favourite game. But let’s face it: nobody in their right mind would spend $129 AUD on a nine year old game with improved visuals… would they?
Infinity Ward's seminal Call of Duty gets the revamp it deserves; Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered gives the 2007 shooter a new lease of life, enabling newcomers to see what all the fuss was about and veterans the chance to relive a classic. The best Call of Duty game just got even better.
Once upon a time Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare was the cream of the crop when it came to FPSs. Nine years later and Modern Warfare Remastered reminds us that FPSs have come such a long way. At its best, it's still a genuine competitor to current FPS, but Modern Warfare Remastered isn’t at its best enough.
Even now, Modern Warfare is pushing boundaries, just in newer ways. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered sets a standard that shames other so-called 'remastered� titles.
Call of Duty Modern Warfare Remastered’s campaign might feel outdated by today’s standards, but its multiplayer remains as addictive and fun as ever.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered is one of the best remasters ever made and makes a classic game even better by giving it a fresh coat of paint. If you miss the old Call of Duty, this was made specifically for you.
