Great Remaster of a Great Original Game
Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare will for the foreseeable future be my favorite Call of Duty game of the all time. It has very flashy, fast and fun core gameplay that put the franchise on the map, great multiplayer that is absent of any of the over-compressed-skill-gap and coded lag like modern CoDs do, and a pretty good campaign with a good score, and interesting characters and well-presented plot.
Raven Software is one of those developers that works in assistance with many projects but extremely rarely primarily develops projects. This remaster stands as one of these exceptions, and Raven has done a great job with almost everything- the lighting, textures, detail, all of it looks absolutely fantastic and feels like a true, effort-filled remaster of Call of Duty 4. For a developer that has only worked in assistance on other CoDs such as MW3, BO1, Ghosts, AW and BO3, and only developed one project on their own (Singularity, a reasonably praised game) Raven has admirably proved themselves as a competent team with this game, be it only a remaster.
The only major issue with this game is the paywalled maps and lootbox micro-transactions, major poor behaviours on Activi$ion's part.
This game, in general terms, is a great remaster of an already great core game beneath. 8/10
