Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has just released, and it's instantly become the most successful instalment in the franchise this generation. Making a whopping $600 million in its first week, fans both old and new have flocked to Activision's latest title, and for good reason.
Not only is it a reboot of a beloved sub-series, but developers Infinity Ward have made plenty of under-the-hood changes. For one, MW runs on a brand new engine designed with the next generation in mind, and with that comes a whole host of new gameplay possibilities.
However, while this has produced the best (or at least, most ambitious) COD in years, it's not without its flaws that are currently been overlooked.
Likewise, it's not without its overblown criticisms either, some of which are expected when a franchise of this magnitude makes even the slightest tweak to the formula, which have gotten completely out of hand.
