Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is the latest game of the Call of Duty game franchise. However, it seems to be getting an endless swarm of criticisms.
The recent game from Activision, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare has just been released in Q4 2016. But unfortunately, it’s getting a ton of criticisms. The most common complaint it gets is the multiplayer that has barely changed.
Lack of Excitement
The lack of exciting game modes and new weapon systems are a few of the things that make the game not a very popular one. Even the environment is very similar to the previous games.
The only difference that are found in the game is the ability to choose a Combat Rig, which is also known as the class specialism. Each Rig also has its own special power that you can use if you have already reached a number of player kills.
Even though the Rig has been incorporated to the game to improve the movement, the differences aren’t really that visible. If there are enhancements, they’re just very small. It’s hardly noticeable at all.
Too Much Futurism and Outer Space
The battles are also very similar to the previous Call of Duty games, as they are all fast paced. And though futuristic energy weapons have been featured in the game, they’re basically just remodeled guns from previous games.
Because of this, the players who have played Call of Duty games, starting from Modern Warfare are not too surprised with the game. It just feels like the same thing, but was just put in a futuristic setting in outer space armed with laser guns.
The changes that are featured in Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is not really that remarkable. Though there might be an obvious graphical improvement, and some bumped up performance speed, there’s really no “big deal” improvement.
Least Popular CoD Game
Because of this, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare remains to be one of the least popular CoD games. Some gamers even refer to it as if it was like a DLC package instead of a new game.
Yes, there are a ton of vibrant environments, powerful laser guns and fearsome boss fights, it’s basically just the same thing. It’s space theme also went too far off, making it not feel like a Call of Duty game anymore. It feels like a different game franchise. Though the plotline is enjoyable and action-packed, you really also don’t have that much freedom in choosing the side missions.
To sum it all up, Activision needs to learn a lesson with Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. That lesson is to not get things too far-fetched. Deviating too much from the roots of the original games makes things worse. Hopefully, the next Call of Duty game will get things back to Earth, and will be more different and identifiably remarkable.
