When the “Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare” trailer was released last November, it received a shocking 2.8 million more dislikes than likes on Youtube. Infinity Ward, the publisher of “Call of Duty,” makes its fair amount of trashy games, and their new release of “Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare” is no different. Infinity Ward intentionally distracts from the awful”Infinite Warfare” by presenting players with a flashy, futuristic setting. However, it didn’t work.

In “Infinite Warfare,” the health of the character is too low, allowing him to be killed almost instantly. Even if Infinity Ward intended to make a more realistic game, the game already includes a more difficult “hardcore mode,” so there’s no reason to base the central game in real life—especially since the game already has exo-suits and laser guns. 

Essentially, “Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare” is not worth a purchase on its own, but the cost may be validated with the purchase of “Call of Duty 4.””

There were a few mistakes made by Infinity Ward when it comes to hip-fire, which is when a first person shooter shoots their gun without aiming down sights. However, the hip fire in “Infinite Warfare” is too accurate and this leads players to spray bullets instead of actually aiming.

“Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare” suffers from gun balancing issues as well. In almost every “Call of Duty” game, there are weapons that are high in damage, but low in fire rate, and vice versa. “Infinite Warfare,” however, has weapons that deal high damage and have a high rate of fire. The easy-to-use sub-machine guns massively overpowered.

The only reason people are buying this game is because producer Activision realized how poor of a game “Infinite Warfare” would be, and opted to bundle it with the much anticipated remaster of “Call of Duty 4,” forcing gamers to pay $80 and purchase “Infinite Warfare” in order to play the game. Gamers and fans of the franchise everywhere are furious with how the game has turned out, and have been demanding that “Modern Warfare 4 Remastered” should be released without the purchase of “Infinite Warfare.” Essentially, “Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare” is not worth a purchase on its own, but the cost may be validated with the purchase of “Call of Duty 4.”
