After an initially sour introdulction, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare has been released. Once again taking place in a fictional futuristic war zone, Infinite Warfare takes players through space (alien free unfortunately). You play Captain Nick Reyes, a man who becomes the replacement Captain after the previous dies during a mission. While it admittedly takes time for you to become invested into the characters in Infinite Warfare’s story, as it progress characters such as the aforementioned Reyes, Lieutenant Salter, the robotic Ethan, and others manage to find a place within your heart.
Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is an 2016 first person shooter, it is developed by Infinity Ward and published by Activision. It is available on PC, Playstation 4, and Xbox One.
Editor’s Note: A Playstation 4 review copy for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare was provided by Activision for the use of this review.
For years now Activision has opted to focus Call of Duty on a fictional future war combat zone, while other might not like it there have been some enjoyable moments from Call of Duty’s “Future Era”. Infinite Warfare provides a ton of these enjoyable moments with perhaps the most enjoyable campaign in lord knows how many years. Though most who play Call of Duty for the online play may be disappointed.
THE GOOD: Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare features one of, if not the most enjoyable campaign in the Call of Duty franchise. With characters such as Reyes, Salter, and Ethan having a noticeable hold of interest, the campaign was one of the most well written stories in gaming this year.
THE BAD: It takes awhile to get invested into the characters of the campaign story. Multiplayer doesn’t have much innovation from Advanced Warfare.
OVERALL THOUGHTS: Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is a well-written game for the campaign portion, though there’s some time taking up on what the characters are selling in emotion and performance, they eventually get you in the heart strings as the story progresses, especially Ethan. Multiplayer is probably the weakest it’s been in ages unfortunately however.
