Call of Duty Modern Warfare – Game Review & What to Record?

Call of Duty received universal praise from critics and gamers. Among all the contents, the gameplay, storyline, multiplayer game mode received the most ardent feedback.

The most interesting parts of this game are the single-player campaign mode and multiplayer mode.

For those who want to record Call of Duty and produce the best gameplay clips, a screen recorder is a necessary, and here I suggest you use RecMaster.

Screen recorder has another usage – record in-game problems and uploads for support.

● Single-player campaign
Modern Warfare has 14 different missions that cost players about 7 hours to finish the whole stories. The missions are difficult and challengeable so players have to wield their wits to implement the missions and further, attain achievements.

The tasks are vivid and breathtaking, you could be asked to penetrate a base, escape from prison, or hunt down terrorists. During the process, you can absorb yourself in the realistic warfare environment and feel the excitement around you.

● Multiplayer
The new multiplayer maps and the realistic terrain draw you into the world of Modern Warfare. The environments include a cave in the mountains and a bridge over the dry Euphrates River. It feels like these places are familiar, based on news reports from distant wars. Meanwhile, Call of Duty maintains its smooth gunplay and has great weapon customization in its multiplayer mode.

However, there is a question that goes along with Multiplayer mode – the unfair match mechanism. Basically, all of the multiplayer games on the market like LOL, Apex, and fortnight will face the question, Call of Duty cannot get out of the old rut too. If you can bear this flaw, Call of Duty will serve you well.

● Bugs
1. Crashes are often seen in the Xbox community in particular and the PC community.
2. SBMM (skill-based matchmaking) – match mechanism receives complaints in that players will face way stronger opponents than themselves.
3. Occasional net code and lag compensation.
4. PC Dev Error 6065/6066/6068.
5. Memory error 13-17.
