Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is one of the most underrated games in the Call of Duty franchise. Released in 2016, the space-themed FPS game is often unfairly criticized and forgotten due to the initial backlash against its futuristic setting. However, with the recent release of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare: Advanced Warfare – Remastered, there’s no better time to look back on the game’s campaign, zombies mode, and multiplayer. Despite being a Call of Duty game, there are plenty of reasons to love Infinite Warfare.

The Campaign

The campaign in Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is, to put it simply, a blast. The story is compelling, the missions are varied, and the overall experience is unique. What makes it so special, though, is the freedom of choice offered throughout. You’re given the option to choose who you work alongside and against, as well as which guns you use. It’s one of the best Call of Duty campaigns and one of the best FPS campaigns, period.

It’s not just the campaign that’s excellent, though, as the cast is also top-notch. Conor McGregor plays a hilarious robot companion named Scuf, while Kit Harrington plays the villain, the seemingly all-powerful leader of the Settlement Defense Front, Admiral Salen Kotch. Harrington’s performance as a villain is often criticized, but I personally love it. He plays the role with a wink and a nod and a swagger that makes Salen fun to watch.

The Multiplayer

The multiplayer is often cited as the weakest aspect of the game, and while it’s true that it doesn’t quite live up to the campaign, it still has its fans. If you want a break from the campaign, you can hop into the multiplayer and enjoy the game’s unique guns and abilities. Many players express nostalgia for earlier Call of Duty games and criticize the lack of innovation in the franchise. While I do agree that it would be nice to see a few more changes in future titles, I don’t think Infinite Warfare deserves all the hate it gets.

The Futuristic Setting

The main reason why Infinite Warfare is often criticized, in my opinion, is due to the backlash it received. I remember when it came out, everyone was so angry about the futuristic setting. Personally, I love it. I love space-themed games, and I love futuristic settings, so I was happy to see a Call of Duty game that offered both. It’s not everyone’s preference, I get it, but to me the futuristic setting is refreshing in a series that often sticks to the same WWII or modern setting.

The space combat and ship segments are a lot of fun if you’re someone who loves space-themed games. I also think the studio deserves some credit for taking a risk and trying something new, despite the negative response it got upon release. I feel like the backlash against Infinite Warfare hindered the studio’s willingness to take risks in future titles and resulted in more safe sequels.


If you haven’t played Infinite Warfare since its initial release, or you have never played it, I strongly recommend giving it a go. You might be surprised by how much you enjoy the campaign, or you may fall back in love with the multiplayer. Either way, it’s worth experiencing, especially with the addition of the zombies mode in the Remastered version.

Despite the unfair criticism, it looks like a lot of players love Infinite Warfare, as many of them express their love for the game. Some consider it their favorite Call of Duty title, while others consider it one of the best first-person shooter campaigns and one of the best multiplayer games – period.

And if you’re looking for more great space games, try out the best Star Wars games, perhaps the best Halo game, or maybe even the best Star Trek game, if you’re a big Conor McGregor fan.
