Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare
Call of Duty or CoD is a video game well known for its multiplayer mode which is not only intense but more importantly, addictive.
Over the years however, with each new addition to the series, the single-player mode improves and it has steadily become very engaging. With the newest release Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, the trend has continued.
As humans have pillaged the Earth and reduced it to scraps, they have had to settle in other areas of the solar system which are abundant in resources. This of course leads to a lot of problems, as an insurgency called the Settlement Defence Front (SDF) rises and fights against the earthbound forces for control of the colonies.
The game kicks off with protagonist Nick Reyes who is battling the SDF along with E3N (Ethan) a cybernetic android and his team. The gameplay is detailed with numerous new additions that make all the difference.
Combat in Infinite Warfare is hugely satisfying as firing guns is very realistic and also modified. When aiming for a target, players will now see a traffic light like system that flashes white for a single hit, yellow for a major injury and red for a kill shot. So now you can easily know once your enemy is dead and no longer have to keep shooting.
Additionally, there are several new weapons like futuristic guns, energy weapons and even spider-grenades which can seek out a target before exploding. Players can also know the exact count of the number of enemies that their grenade killed, as the screen shows up small crosses that say ‘Kill’ next to them.
While this single-player mode is no doubt thrilling, the multi-player mode can also be intense. In a case where two players have the same gun but one player’s weapon is modified to a greater level, that player will then have an advantage.
There are several downsides as well. Characters have funny and witty dialogues but still all seem the same and are all equally uninteresting. Running up a wall can be tiring and throwing a grenade is disappointing when the arc throw and cook time are not realistically synced.
What is the most interesting part of this game is the first map called Zombies in Spaceland. This is an 80s theme-park, complete with appropriate music and drooling Zombies. By travelling into space, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare has uncovered a basis for creating a truly involved and engaging game. However, a story and game is based highly on its characters and in this aspect, the game disappoints. For those who enjoy killing zombies, the multi-player mode in this game is the perfect way to kill time with friends.
