So it’s arrived, Call of Duty:Infinite Warfare has just been released yesterday and it turns out it’s maybe not deserving of all the Youtube hate it initially received. Taking on more of a Sci-Fi element than we would've expected it’s definitely seeming to be more than just CoD in space (although admittedly that is technically what it is). Yet, it’s not the only kid on the block as we’re sure you’ve noticed, it’s arch nemesis Battlefield 1 has also been an absolute treat to play so far in all it’s Great War glory, so, you know where this is heading by now, who is going to be crowned the top military shooter in this annual showdown?
It turns out living in the past is actually pretty great, as we have been having bucket loads of fun with the new Battlefield 1. Tanks, zeppelins, armoured trains, mother flippin horses! They’re all there and all a wild ride in the classic Battlefield formula. While also with a truly great shake up of their campaign and more new features you can shake a stick at, it’s definitely been one of the hardest ones to put down recently. But then is it that perfect? Is it turning into just more of a run and gunner? Or has sniping just become too good? (there is a lot of them)
On the other hand (and historical spectrum as it turns out) Infinite Warfare takes us on an adventure into the stars to battle against a splitter colony of humans hell bent on being jerks, a match up which so far has been kinda awesome. Its campaign is just as good as ever, this game having no shame in it's run and gun routes, and is there anyone that can say they haven't enjoyed getting a group of mates together to have a good old zombies shakedown? (This time it's the 80s!) And lest we forget if you were lucky enough to get the Legacy Edition, Boom Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare Remastered! How can you not get sucked back into its simplistic perfection that if you look at it right, will only set you back an extra £20? It’s pretty hard to resist in our eyes. Yet is it really fair for Infinite Warfare to piggyback off one of the greats? Is that maybe telling us something? Is it becoming too much like Halo? Or is the Windows Steam divide just too much?
