Warzone silences all skeptics who gave battle-royale by declining genre. Infinity Ward introduces few but winning innovations that make their product perhaps one of the most complete on the market. Malloppo and Battle-Royale deserve two separate talks, but if we see the first as a simple extension of the second and not as a central element, Warzone reaches an evaluation close to perfection. Pay-to-win element as nonexistent as the genre has accustomed us.

In this season Infinity Ward shows really exemplary support for Modern Warfare 2019, interest in multiplayer does not fall and the game surprises with a variety of activities and content. There is really nothing to find fault with. Call of Duty: Warzone was definitely a success, especially considering free access for any player.

With Call of Duty Warzone, Infinity Ward firmly took hold of battle royale and confidently said: "This is how you do it." And then they kept going and made Plunder. And they wrapped it all in a package with a brilliant launch model, tearing down barriers of entry and making access to Warzone as seamless as possible for players new and old. Warzone blends Call of Duty and battle royale until you can't find the lines between the two; familiar ideas polished to a new industry standard for both.

With all the different battle royale games on the market, all seeming to offer the same experiences, Warzone might give the most realistic, precise, and investing performance of them all, but it will need to stay innovative. Sounds of ricocheting bullets, footsteps of the enemy, and a highly detailed world keep it a cut above its competition. I easily found this to be one of my favorite battle royale games to date.

Warzone is a fast paced Battle Royale game that offers many good things and a few bad ones. Overall the experience I had while playing the game was terrific and unique in its own way. I am sure with Developers’ Long-term plans to support the game, we will be able to be entertained by this game for a long time

Standalone Battle Royale mode for Call of Duty is unexacting and amusing. Good choice in this genre.

It's safe to say that Warzone really revolutionized the Battle Royal genre by simplifying the gameplay as much as it could, with some great new ideas like accidental loot system or much less dependency on inventory systems worked superbly. We have to wait and see whether Warzone can be a match for big players like Apex and PUBG in the long run, but all we can say is that the potential is there and Infinity Ward seems to be on the right track.

A great new entrant in the battle royale genre with lots of unique features. Not all of them feel great (yet), but these shortcomings don't make the Warzone less fun.

Warzone is a fine example of how you can iterate on a formula and improve it, but remove the heart of something by playing it a little too safe.

Having 150 players slows down the game too much for my liking, but additions like the Gulag and the new game mode Plunder are great ways to keep the experience fresh instead of copying old trends.

Listen: Warzone is, like its skull-masked, kevlar-tucking “operators”, entirely solid. It bloody well should be, given its pedigree. But there is remarkably little interesting here – aside from flourishes like the sinister gulag section – to command our attention.
