Call of Duty Esports Game Review

Call of Duty is published and owned by Activision; its first release came out in 2003 and was developed by Infinity Ward.

Call of Duty (CoD) is probably the world’s most popular shooter series, exploding onto the gaming scene with the ridiculously popular Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare.

CoD Games Overview

Read our short review of this first-person shooter video game franchise

CoD 4 was the first iteration of the soldier-simulator to include the now famous multiplayer format, where plays match up constantly in one of the title’s many game modes and gun each other down.

In 2013 the series boasted 100 million unique players and tallied 32 quadrillion bullets had been fired in multiplayer games so far, and it’s gone from strength to strength since then.


Watch the Story Trailer

Here you can watch the Official Story Trailer released on Sep 15, 2016 for CoD Infinite Warfare.

“After a simultaneous surprise attack on UNSA forces in Geneva and the Moon Port Gateway, Lt. Nick Reyes must take the helm of the Retribution, one of Earth’s last remaining warships. In a time of unthinkable adversity, Reyes must lead his trusted crew against the relentless Settlement Defense Front’s plans to dominate all who oppose them”  – official premise published by Activision.

Boasting over 250 million sales of games by 2016, the Call of Duty franchise is one that dominates the gaming scene, with it now offering a total of 15 games, coming from four different arcs. Arguably what makes this series so adaptable and enjoyable, is the fact that there’s so much diversity in its content, with the games covering both past wars and offering futuristic ones yet to have happened.

If we strip all of its history back and go to 2003, when the original CoD was developed by the company Infinity Ward and released by Activision, we can see much has remained the same. The stories over the years may have transformed, but the core elements of what makes this franchise so great have stayed the same, chiefly those textured and realistic graphics.

Having been witness to the release of the Black Ops and Ghosts arc games, we’re excited to move onto the future, with the latest release being Call of Duty:WWII. This new installment is going to take CoD back to where it all began, to World War 2, giving players a back to roots type of aesthetic and feel. There’s so much that these games offer, that no end of different players take up their weapons and fight for their comrades – will you be one of them?

Game Modes

Develop Your Own Style with the game modes of CoD; capture, eliminate, destroy.

Like most online shooters, CoD gives its players plenty of choice when choosing a game mode to get stuck into. As multiple developers share the production of CoD annual releases, each version of the game has slight variations in the game modes they offer.

Having said that, there are staple activities that appear in every Call of Duty title. A stereotypical Team Deathmatch is always the most popular, in which two teams of players rack up kills against each other until a pre-designated score has been met.

Then you’ve got: Free for All, Headquarters, Capture the Flag and the relatively new game mode Kill Confirmed.

This variety is one of the main reasons that Call of Duty has remained as popular as it has for so long. There’s always a new game mode to try out – some aimed towards providing an authentic military experience, and others purely to encourage enjoyment.

Perks of the job

Enhance Your Character and Give Them Abilities to Push Ahead and Win.

The real defining aspect of Call of Duty in comparison to other shooters, is its custom class setup system. They weren’t the first to do it, but Infinity Ward definitely made class setups the mainstream when they designed CoD4’s menus.

In pre-game systems, players are able to setup their soldiers gear, giving them choices between primary guns (Assault Rifles, Submachine Guns, Sniper rifles etc), secondary guns (pistols, anti-vehicular launchers), equipment (grenades) and special equipment (smoke grenades, flashbangs and stun grenades).

On top of this, the game gives players a choice of three perks. These are split into three categories: Primary Perks, Secondary Perks and Third Perks. These enhance a player’s gameplay by giving them options.

For example, if you wanted to sneak around the map and pick people off, you could choose the Cold Blooded perk, which traditionally keeps you out of sight of enemy radars and killstreaks, or if you wanted to go in all guns blazing, the Scavenger perk which allows you to recover ammunition from dead soldiers may be more fitting.

In addition, players can also choose from a list of killstreak bonuses that they receive when they successfully attain kills without dying. These usually involve a flying vehicle being called in for support, that guns down the opposing team without mercy.
