Stop your eye-rolling, it’s better than you expect
Everyone loves to roll their eyes a t the thought of a “new” Call of Duty game; after all, we’ve played games from this franchise a half-dozen times now, and the bloom is off the rose. But don’t be so quick to judge, because the newest installment of Call of Duty is the freshest version of an old favorite that we’ve played since Infinity Ward’s Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. In addition to a majorly revamped main campaign with several welcome surprises, it also sports a reasonably improved multiplayer mode and an all-new zombie mode that is a bit cliché at this point, but still a lot of fun.
