In seconds we witnessed the most classic feeling satisfaction this generation of console gaming has seen. We were happy to hold a PS4 controller and watch a past beloved game look better than ever before. We are living in the time of ‘remastered’. It’s games like this that remind us that some games deserve the remastered treatment. Call of Duty 4 is among the games that deserve to undergo such enhancement.
The match type was domination. Players filled the arena with instant objective. It didn’t feel like nonsense or pointless run and gun action. Just as before, the game gave players the opportunity to feel cool whilst thinking of every move and trying to complete the task at hand. It is fast-paced but not to the point of stress or discomfort. The game was intense without frustration. Our Call of Duty 4 Remastered preview reminds us why the name Call of Duty rose to the top.
Again, Call of Duty 4 shows players a way to get lost for hours. You don’t want to put the controller down. It’s easy to want to play just another game because it’s just that fun to be a part of. There is no explanation as to why it feels so good to be playing it again. It’s an experience that so many already love that is untampered and redistributed.
Call of Duty 4 remastered Preview – Visuals
The visuals mark the main point of interest during our Call of Duty 4 Remastered preview. This is what Modern Warfare would look like if it were released today rather than in 2007. It’s not much of a surprise that the game looks great because that is precisely the point of remastering a game. Well that aside from the point of making extra dough off of an icon.
“Overgrown” debut our Call of Duty 4 Remastered preview. Call of Duty 4 or Modern Warfare 2 fans should familiar with the large map with a farm-like setting. The maps vegetation was a standout feature for sure. Overgrown caters to snipers. The enhanced visuals make for even better blending among the stealthy players. The abandoned neighborhood has the same eerie feel as before, this time it just looks better.
Call of Duty 4 Remastered is featuring 10 maps at launch and adding the other original maps at a later point as DLC. So far, Overgrown is impressive. The other maps have impressed players too.

Infinite Warfare fell short of that reminder but Call of Duty 4 Remastered is there to hold that up.

So far players can only purchase the title though buying the Legacy, Pro Legacy or Digital Deluxe edition of Infinite Warfare. It’s a shame as if you love Call of Duty 4 then we believe there is a high possibility that you might not have the same love for Infinite Warfare due to its major differences.
