Call of Duty is one of the game series that brings in front a lot of controversy. However, each new entry sells a lot more than the predecessor, which means that we do get annualized entries all the time. Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is the latest entry in the series and it seems that we finally have a COD fatigue.
The game is also set in the future like most of the other games until this one, but this time we actually get to visit Space and engage in beautiful Space battles.
The story is quite impressive, we follow a soldier that ends up becoming the leader of a battleship. With help from a coalition, he will have to eliminate all mercenaries and bring peace to the system once and for all. There are many new elements story-wise and the plot is nicely created to the point where you do receive quite a bit of value and fun to begin with. The game does a very good job at offering you a distinct, clear set of guidelines. Yet the campaign doesn’t have that open world feel and it still maintains that feeling of scripted tasks that can become monotonous at times.
Single and Multiplayer
Yet the single player does a very good job at standing out when compared to its predecessor, and that says quite a lot. The problem I have with Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare doesn’t sit in the single player campaign though. That one is very good. My main issue is with the multi-player.
You get pretty much the same map types, same crate system and weapons from BO3. Sure, you do have some new weapons like the plasma based ones, but the multi-player still is almost the same as BO3. And that’s bad, since everyone expected them to do something creative with the Space theme and experience.
The gun play is very good and you do have a lot of weapons to choose from. Also, I like the fact that they do bring in front a lot of value with the customization option. It’s unique, refined and it does showcase some really interesting ideas. That alone does manage to impress you as you play. And since you have crates that will offer additional unlocks, you never have to worry about new skins and customization options.
Graphically, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is pretty much the same. You don’t get a new engine, which is disappointing, but the visuals are good either way and the value is amazing in its own right.
Should you consider purchasing Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare? It depends on the platform. On PC, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare doesn’t have a large population, but on consoles you do get quite a lot of players to engage in battle! So, if you own a console, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare can be a very good option. If you have a PC, then there are some better FPS games out there right now, like Titanfall 2 or Battlefield 1.
