I don't think that's a surprise. They marketed the hell out of it, and it has the modern warfare, very popular name attached.

I didn't play it myself but it got a lot of positive feedback online. Maybe this will be the franchise's return to greatness.

Many are claiming its the best CoD game so far with what we played, i am enjoying it so far. Its looking very promising. CoD needs a return to form game. This might be it.

It's the best MW, probably the best CoD game.

I had a go, didn't think much of it. It's okay. In terms of gameplay, I think BO3 is when the series peaked.

Let's see if it translates to sales even though I don't really care about CoD or FPS in general for that matter.
