Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Reviews Summary

Summary: The Modern Warfare reboot pulls few punches in its story, but it also gets its tone confused. Luckily, the multiplayer is a much stronger experience and one that should only improve with its free content roadmap.

Deep Multiplayer

Leveling up guns and other unlockables is an addictive timesink.

Still the FPS Standard-Bearer

Tight as ever gunplay keeps all competitors chasing Call of Duty for another year.

Story Gets Stuck Between Worlds

Is it gritty and realistic or Hollywood and bombastic? It can't decide.
