The Call Of Duty Chronicles: A decade of epic battles.



With the upcoming MW3 release, I figured what better time to compile a list of my favourite call of duty games from the last decade. What are your thoughts on the list? Let us know below >


10.

Call of Duty: Vanguard (2021) – Positioned at the bottom of my list due to a lack of innovation and plenty of issues. The campaign received mixed reviews, and the multiplayer experience did not live up to the expectations set by previous titles. It had spawn issues, poor level designs and simply I felt graphically it didn’t look great compared to Cold War. Something about it felt rushed, the guns weren’t great, and it just felt all around jarring and unenjoyable. The WW2 setting was already over done which also didn’t help.



9.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 (2018) - Black Ops 4 focused on a multiplayer-only experience with the removal of a single-player campaign. While it introduced the popular "Blackout" battle royale mode, the absence of a traditional campaign disappointed many fans, including myself. The multiplayer levels weren’t great, and frankly it felt like a huge let down after BO3.


8.

Call of Duty: Ghosts (2013) - Ghosts had strengths in customization and was visually impressive on the PS4 but faced criticism for the storyline and character development. I never really got into it and felt the poor level design and the lack of multiplayer innovation made it less enjoyable then others on this list.


7.

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare (2014) - This instalment was notable for its introduction of exoskeletons, which fundamentally changed gameplay dynamics. I always felt that it was a bit janky and stiff, and never particularly enjoyed many levels. The campaign was really fun, and safe to say probably hasn’t aged well..


6.

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare (2016) - Set in a futuristic sci-fi environment, Infinite Warfare featured a captivating single-player campaign. However, the multiplayer was divisive, with some players feeling it deviated too far from the series' core identity. Personally, I enjoyed that, and wouldn’t mind another call of duty in a similar setting.


5.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (2022) is undeniably enjoyable, offering the classic call of duty action the series is known for. However, it fell a bit short in innovation, sticking closely to its roots without introducing anything substantially new to the franchise. It still had just enough new content though to stay fresh (eg. DMZ). It also introduced a new warzone map Al-Mazra, but otherwise definitely didn’t re-invent the wheel. A solid game that is still great fun with plenty of content.


4.

Call of Duty: WWII (2017) - A return to World War II delivered a heartfelt campaign with historically accurate details. It rekindled the nostalgia of earlier Call of Duty titles. The multiplayer and cooperative modes provided solid gameplay experiences, successfully capturing the essence of the era. Although some level designs were maligned by fans (shotguns and trenches anyone?) it was an incredibly fun addition to the series and I played the heck out of it.


3.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War (2020) - As a direct sequel to the original Black Ops, it offered a compelling narrative and historical context. It introduced enough new content, and the zombies mode was fantastic. I still remember booting it up as the first COD on my new PS5 and being absolutely blown away by the visuals and being able to play in 120fps. Although I wasn’t sold at first, after a few weeks of playing I was hooked. Loved everything about it, and still boot it up to this day.


2.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare (2019) - This game successfully reinvigorated the Modern Warfare series by returning to its roots. With a gritty and thought-provoking single-player campaign and a more tactical approach to multiplayer, it catered to fans seeking a more authentic and intense experience. Renowned for introducing Warzone (Miss you Verdansk) this reboot really had it all. One of the most complete titles in the series, and the developers really just got it right with this one.


1.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 (2015) - Black Ops 3 tops my list due to its innovative approach to futuristic warfare and superb gameplay. It introduced advanced movement mechanics, like wall-running and thrust jumps, which added a dynamic layer to the gameplay and felt incredibly well done. The diverse range of specialists, engaging multiplayer modes, and the unreal zombies mode, made it my personal #1 choice. I poured countless hours into this game, and to this day it is still my favourite call of duty title.
