Call of Duty is a first-person shooter video game franchise. The series began on Microsoft Windows, and expanded to consoles and handhelds. Several spin-off games have been released. The earlier games in the series are set primarily in World War II, but later games have typically been set in modern times or in futuristic settings. The most recent game, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, was released on October 12, 2018. As of February 2016, the Call of Duty series has sold over 250 million copies.
Best Call of Duty Games of All Time
- Call of Duty: WW2. While Call of Duty: WWII offered a surprisingly fast-paced and fun World War II experience, the boots-on-the-ground old-war setting didn’t resonate as much as we would have liked. But with an array of engaging multiplayer modes, such as War and Prop Hunt, and a Zombies mode that returned to its terrifying horror roots, WW2 was a surprisingly solid offering.
- Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. Advanced Warfare brought Call of Duty into the future yet again with a blockbuster story campaign centered around an advanced military tech company that gives soldiers enhanced mobility via Exo Suits. While the enhanced mobility introduced by these suits was a welcome change in the campaign, the exo movements dramatically changed the formula of player-versus-player multiplayer. This drastic shift met mixed reception, and the advanced movement suit was ultimately removed in later entries in the series.
- Call of Duty: Black Ops 3. Perhaps more than any other Call of Duty, Black Ops 3 wasn’t afraid to take risks. In multiplayer, Treyarch gave us wall running and specialist classes, which seemed like a logical next step in the increasingly futuristic Black Ops franchise. Despite the clunky new movement, the new inclusion of class-like Specialists gave us options to play how we wanted. With another dose of the now-equally ridiculous and difficult Zombies mode, Black Ops 3 really shined in its cooperative play. The opportunity to play with friends made up for a forgettable campaign with Zombies building on a formula that continues to draw in hordes of players.
- Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. Modern Warfare 3 continued to push the series in a familiar direction. The campaign wrapped up its predecessors’ storylines and the multiplayer doubled down on what Call of Duty fans had come to expect. Though it introduced new elements like weapon progression, proficiencies, and some other minor additions to the multiplayer suite, Modern Warfare 3 stuck to its guns.
- Call of Duty 2. Few games have had a campaign as hard-hitting as Call of Duty 2. If you purchased a launch Xbox 360, this was the game that defined the term “next-gen.”. Of course, by today’s standards, its graphics are dated, but the excellent sound design and moment-to-moment gameplay immersed us in the World War 2 experience like nothing before.
- Medkits rejoin the fight. Activision’s decision to dial back the clock to 1944 isn’t just a cheap way to tap into its WW2 roots - developer Sledgehammer games has weaved back in many of the key mechanics that made the days of the first COD and the original Medal of Honour so moreish in their toughness. Health regeneration, which first appeared in COD2, is gone, replaced by your old friend the medkit. Considering the campaign begins on Normany beach with the D-Day invasion, it won’t take long to realise you’re no supersoldier here. Axis bullets kill fast and quick, forcing you to play slow, smart and efficiently.
- The sound design is superb. A lot of noise has been generated of late with regards to how good COD:WW2 looks not just on Xbox One X or PS4 Pro but on regular current-gen machines, too. But to complement all that visceral mayhem, Sledgehammer has incorporated a sound design that’s just as - if not more - immersive. Artillery fire booms, rifle fire peppers mud, steel and flesh with their own distinctive sounds and nothing comes close to clunking ping of an M1 Garand being reloaded. The decision to let you systemic sound design carry the drama - rather than constantly relying on the score to do the work for it.
- Teamwork will always be rewarded. Lone wolves don’t win wars, and Sledgehammer has driven home that point with its single-player story. You’ll need your squadmates every step of the way to survive, and they’ll need you, too. Each mission has its own ‘Heroic Moments’, such as saving a fellow infantryman from being gutted by an Axis soldier. Pulling off such a save will upgrade your squadmates with enhanced abilities, such as providing more ammo in the field or medkits.
- Reduced speed and movement is a good thing. For more than three years, COD has been all about the augmented double jumps and wall-running. Those days are over, and good riddance, too. It’s a shock to not have such a deft sense of movement, but by removing the frustrating amount of emphasis placed on verticality, multiplayer becomes an intense ‘boots on the ground’ assault. It’s an addition by subtraction, where your reduced overall mobility forces everyone to fight within the same rules. It makes things fairer for new players, regardless of when they pick up the game, and enables every user to excel through skill rather than mechanical exploitation.
- Kill Confirmed is its own mode again. If you played 2016’s partially lacklustre Infinite Warfare, you’ll have noticed the fan favourite multiplayer mode Kill Confirmed had been coupled with a brand new mode. It was constant gripe that forced plenty of players back into Black Ops III - one that bit even harder when you realised Infinite Warfare had some great small scale maps. Thankfully, Activision and Sledgehammer Games has listened and the dog-tag collecting mayhem of Kill Confirmed has finally been restored to its sole glory. Alongside the likes of TDM and Domination, COD finally has its holy multiplayer trinity back on fine form.

- Call of Duty was my go to game when I played on Xbox 360. I’d either play the online matches which were very fun or the zombies mode with my friends which were great! Then I moved to Xbox one and the Call of Duty games started changing and I just kind of stopped playing at that point as it was really different! But I still think the old games are classics for when you’re playing with friends and feel like getting the old console out for old times sake.
