Back then, I spent countless hours playing the multiplayer of the original Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and probably know the shooter’s maps better than the town I grew up in. In the meantime, however, I have turned my back on the CoD series and play a few rounds of Warzone at most when I have the time and inclination.

The fact that MW3 brings back the maps from the original second part of the Warzone series is of course damn good news for me as a fan and now there are no more excuses for me to spend at least a while in the multiplayer of this year’s CoD to do something in indulge in nostalgia!
