Modern Warfare Remastered: A Remaster of the 2007 "Hit" Multiplayer First-Person Shooter Game Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare

A remaster is not exactly something that we hear much of these days in video-games and there was little to almost no surprise in that the deluxe legacy edition for Infinite Warfare (the last main Call of Duty title to release back in 2016) when bundled with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered that it would garner a lot of attention from long lasting fans of the Call of Duty franchise.

Many Call of Duty fans have been asking for boots on the ground action ever since COD: Advanced Warfare when Call of Duty took a new direction into futuristic warfare where their is space jumping and running on walls. Many traditionalist fans of the COD franchise found this to be a step in the wrong direction which ultimately landed the franchise into making less money than they had previously been making before this title release.

The following year in 2015 COD released Black Ops 3 which was also a no-boots-on-the-ground game but luckily Treyarch was the developer for this title meaning that COD fans were more delighted by the game that was made. Given that Black Ops had been a series running for some time in production this offered very little however in bringing the COD community back into full swing.

Hopes of a COD revival was at near breaking point in 2016 with the advanced movement systems that had been in place for the past two COD release cycles (2014 and 2015) so the main release COD for 2016 was a futuristic title named Infinite Warfare, but in the deluxe legacy edition bundle (costing an additional $20) it came with a free copy of Modern Warfare Remastered, a remaster of the 2007 COD 4.

Why Modern Warfare Remastered is Ground Breaking Success in the Video-Gaming World

Even though this may have been overlooked by tired critics and an overwhelming community of angry Call of Duty fans who have had enough of Activision's (the publisher and owner of the Call of Duty franchise) extent to squeezing as much money out of the COD fans as possible, COD: Modern Warfare Remastered is a masterpiece.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered (now, to be simply put as MWR) is the first boots on the ground COD that we have seen since Call of Duty: Ghosts which was released back in 2013 so it had a lot of weight to carry given the angry COD community that would be putting the game under extreme scrutiny.

As expected the COD community in most came together to complain about how MWR was just another waste of Activision's time in trying to squeeze every cent out of their consumers as possible. This was apparent in the eye of the consumers when they charged an additional $15 on top of the original price of the game to play the DLC map pack that was originally released alongside the COD 4 game back in 2007.

Then came the supply drops, a system that has been in the COD franchise for the past couple of years ever since the release of Advanced Warfare which is said to be a broken system that has been popping up in COD titles of recent including MWR.

However, what fans are most annoyed with when concerning MWR is that in the supply drops they are not cosmetic only as there are DLC weapons that have been added into the supply drops as bounties that must be unlocked by first unlocking every item cosmetic or otherwise that is required in order to then unlock the specific bounties.

The anger in having supply drop weapons in the supply drops is in that there will be many gamers who play COD: MWR that do not have the time to play the game non-stop in order to unlock enough depot credits which enables the player to unlock the supply drops, to then earn enough parts that will enable the player to unlock the bounties. This, then leaves the player in a form of distress over then spending money to unlock supply drops which may in the end result in not unlocking the gun bounties anyway.

As far this has been simply concerning the multiplayer end to the wildly successful MWR which has on leaderboards on the Xbox One more than 6 million players with stats, and on the PS4 more than 6 million players with stats. There has recently been the standalone release for MWR so there has been a steady influx of new players on the leaderboards for the Xbox One and PS4 so now is the time to be playing MWR.

When it comes down to the multiplayer for COD: MWR many players whom have played the game online will simply have to complain, starting with the poor connectivity to the game, to the cheating/camping players, to the OP guns, to the poorly made maps, to the unseeable players on darker maps... but in the end it is all of this that made COD 4 so much fun back in 2007. The game being remastered in 2016 (crossover/2017) brings the COD franchise back to its basics, and no one is saying that the game was perfect as it is not now remastered. But, it is a game that will go down in history as perhaps the best game remaster that has ever been made.

The Surprises Make Modern Warfare Remastered the Most Playable Online Game for 2017

Modern Warfare Remastered has strayed away from the COD 4 game that many fans will know and love from back when it was released in 2007, as we are now in 2017 and MWR has taken the game to new heights giving the game a whole new level of action and fun. The original was not without its problems and many gamers of today want the best and the most up to date experiences and there is the feeling that MWR has done this exceptionally well.

Since the release of MWR back in November 2016 there have been seasonal events to keep the game interesting and at the top of COD fans minds when they think of how to spend those holiday hours at home. The MWR events started with Christmas that offered fans a holiday specific aimed map, Winter Crash that was playable throughout the festive season, then there was the release of Day Break a map that was released for St. Patricks, and then most recently Days of Summer (Beach Bog summer map for event) which was an event lasting several weeks.

During the MWR events they have remained consistent in adding updates that include supply drops which included Alpha, Lion Strike and Copperhead. There were also supply drops that were unique to the years events but locked after the events finished.

Then, finally MWR has remained at the top of COD fans minds due to their weekend warfare events that have included some practical game mode releases unique to that weekend and also some fun/if not funny game mode events for the weekend. These weekend events usually come in the form of double XP or double depot credits (used to open supply drops). Some of these events have included Prop Hunt, Slasher, Capture the Flag, Domination, and many others that have the likelihood of returning to the game at some point in more permanent form.
