Call of Duty: Warzone 2 review-in-progress

  • November 18, 2022

For the first time in what feels like ages, Call of Duty is innovating again. Even bogged down by a rough launch and saddled with an agonizingly clunky user interface, Call of Duty: Warzone 2 is still a massive step up over its predecessor. 

A battle royale game is only as good as its map(s), and Al Mazrah is up there as one of the best I’ve yet played on. A jewel of the Islamic Golden Age, the fictional Syria-like has been laid low by internal strife and foreign intervention. Gaudy contemporary business districts contrast wonderfully against the mosques and bazaars, creating a map that feels much more lived in than predecessors Verdansk and Caldera.
