Modern Warfare: Proving it’s Still the King of Call of Duty Campaigns
The Modern Warfare franchise has been a leader among all the various Call of Duty universes, offering the most engaging and intense campaigns to date. By delivering an emotional story, dynamic firefights, and beautifully crafted environments, it has set the bar for what an engaging single-player experience should be. Despite the game’s older age, it seems that it will remain a leader in the singleplayer space.
From the very first mission you can tell that Modern Warfare is a special game. The Soviet Ultranationalists threaten to plunge the world into chaos and you quickly dive into the action. Your mission will take you from the Middle East to the heart of Russia where you uncover a horrifying truth. Throughout the mission you’ll experience intense firefights and high-impact set pieces that keep you engaged and on the edge of your seat. The story is surprisingly solid and drives you towards a satisfying conclusion.
The gameplay of Modern Warfare is intense, and often terrifying. The enemy AI is intelligently designed to put realism into every firefight. You’ll need to take cover, as enemies use strategies that require you to carefully plan out your approach. Firefights are a frantic ballet of bullets and destruction in which you’ll quickly need to move and improvise, otherwise you’ll find yourself quickly out of luck. Every action movie cliché comes to life in Modern Warfare, as you’ll need to leap from helicopters, rappel down building facades, and sometimes even race across rooftops.
Graphically, Modern Warfare shows its age. While it may not be the prettiest of games, its environments and textures are still nicely detailed. Even the character models still hold up after much time. For the truly nostalgic, alternate modding community has stepped in. With additional textures, effects, and custom models, you can bring Modern Warfare into the modern age with stunning visuals and effects.
There’s no doubt that the Modern Warfare franchise still stands as a leader among the Call of Duty universes. With engaging and intense campaigns, dynamic firefights, and a memorable cast of characters, it still proves why it is the best single-player offering to date. Its age may show, but its impact still remains strong.
