Review Roundup: Call of Duty Infinite Warfare
Welcome to our first Pixels Weekly Review Roundup. When notable games are hitting store shelves we create a big ol' post that assembles highlights of reviews from all sorts of publications, so you can just check one place to see everything.
Polygon - 8.5 (Provisional)
Russ Frushtick is reviewing this one, and even though he dragged COD Ghosts through the mud, he seems to quite like this years iteration. Noting the campaign as a high point. The review is still provisional, however, meaning they're taking a wait-and-see approach with online server performance.
IGN - 7.7 (Not Final)
Job Gilroy's review is more of a mixed bag, though not unflattering. Contrasting the game this yer to Black Ops III from last year. Noting now being a great time for people to try out Zombie mode if they haven't before. It's a review in progress, so the score may change.
Gamespot - 8
Miguel Concepcion talks about how going to outer space has affected the drama and gameplay of Call of Duty, and says the 5-7 hour single player outshines this year's multiplayer modes with solid storytelling.
Destructoid - 7
Chris Carter felt that the sci-fi dressing ultimately doesn't add much to the series, calling some of the new features gimmicks, and mentions the story doesn't fair well when compared to other more epic science fiction tales in gaming.
