We were not overly impressed with Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, feeling that while it was fun, the formula was showing its age and it didn’t really use the space setting effectively. But, as Honest Trailers points out, “fun” might be good enough compared to the rest of the franchise. Spoilers in the video and below!
This spoiler-heavy take on the game is funny not least for how often they return to its Achilles heel; the fact that they have to try and play the tragic death card every time the plot needs to take a turn. Sure, it works the first time a character you’re invested in bites it, but the rest of the time you just find yourself wondering why you’re flying around in a spaceship and 3D-printing guns while medical technology apparently hasn’t advanced past 1998. Surprisingly going uncommented on was the return of “Press X To Pay Your Respects,” but hey, we’ll whale on it while we’re here a little more. Come on, guys, six months of memes wasn’t enough?
Beyond that, they point out the multiplayer is basically unchanged, which is true, and that Zombies remains fun provided you can ever get a decent team together. Seriously, if you find one, treasure them and never let them go. Also because otherwise you’ll be stuck on Wave 9 for like years. Stupid zombies.
