Takes the series to its logical conclusion with new ideas held back by tired conventions.

Since the release of Modern Warfare back in 2007, the điện thoại tư vấn of Duty series has increasingly flirted with futuristic combat—each new iteration has brought us a little closer towards full-blown sci-fi, adding advanced weaponry, introducing jetpacks, & making wall-running a method of traversal through its many war-torn environments.

With Infinite Warfare that skirting flirtation goes out the window completely. This is a game rife with spaceships, warp drives, và laser weapons, which feel more in line with Star TrekBattlestar Galactica than Gọi of Duty. Rather than fight through the cities of Earth, Infinite Warfare sends you to the far reaches of the Solar System to lớn battle above sầu planets; instead of ultranationacác mục radicals, you fkết thúc off a Martian insurgency, hell-bent on taking your home page world for its own.

It makes for a far fresher game, at least in single-player. This is a chiến dịch that not so much shrugs but violently shakes off the lacklustre Ghosts moniker—Infinity Ward’s previous entry in the franchise—which many people (myself included) interpreted as a sign that the developer was out of ideas. While it’s clear that its ideas are still relatively thin on the ground, Infinite Warfare is by far the best campaign the series has seen in years. It’s just a shame that its multiplayer, while robust, is substantially lacking where rivals lượt thích Battlefield 1 have excelled.

Going it alone

This large shift in focus is the most surprising thing about Infinite Warfare. For years now, multiplayer has always been the main draw in Call of Duty, but here that’s different, with the seven-hour chiến dịch taking centre stage. It’s the writing that really seals the deal; despite its huge leap into lớn the intergalactic future, Infinite Warfare retains a relatable sense of humanity that grounds its hyper-intense action. You might be fighting against mechanised infantry và skating across the frozen surface of Europa, but developer Infinity Ward delivers the most intelligently scripted Call of Duty game since Modern Warfare, one that avoids absurd ideas like Ghosts’ obsession with VR and strips things baông xã. It focuses on a single b& of soldiers, the pressures of leadership, and whether the success of a mission is more important than the lives of the men carrying it out.



The group you fight throughout Infinite Warfare’s chiến dịch is the Settlement Defense Front, Martian rebels led by Kit Harrington’s Admiral Kotch—a ruthless ideologue & ultimate bad guy who’s hell bent on destroying Earth. He makes this clear in the game’s opening hours, wherein Earth suffers a devastating attaông xã. It reminded me of Halo 2’s introductory assault by the Covenant, but despite Kotch’s overwhelming cruelty his character feels underworked, and rather than give hyên ổn any real motivations, Infinity Ward leaves Kotch as a bad dude who does bad things because… reasons.

The rest of the cast fares far better, though. You play as Niông chồng Reyes, a Tom Cruise-alượt thích who has been thrust inkhổng lồ the unenviable position of inheriting a capital ship, the Retribution, and its hundreds of crew. Your mission is to lớn buy Earth time to rebuild its fleet before you take the fight directly to lớn Kotch & his SDF goons. It’s a simple, no-nonsense story, but it’s told with such fervour that Infinite Warfare is elevated far beyond its recent predecessors.

Nichồng is likeable, loyal, & honourable, and his crew và cthua thảm teammates are just as personable. David Harewood’s Sergeant Omar is an absolute badass Englishman, while Reyes’ closest partner, Nora Salter (or Salt lớn those who know her best) is as svào minded and likeable as he is, delivering the pitch-perfect phối of admiration & criticism towards his decisions as a leader. Then there’s Ethan, the highlight of the game’s cast, an AI robot whose wit is only as good as his abilities in combat & who acts as lighthearted relief lớn what is an otherwise fairly dour tale of survival và impossible odds.
