Ranking the Call of Duty games from worst to best


Since the first Call of Duty game was released back in 2003, gamers have enjoyed the series’ great single player campaigns and cracking multiplayer, making the Call of Duty games the most popular and most played military shooters in the world.

But which of these games is the best and which the worst? This is a matter of debate for sure, as the series has seen annual releases for over a decade, adding novelties like the fan-favourite zombies mode, while the franchise will now be going back to its roots after Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare’s sci-fi action failed to set the world alight last year. So without further ado, here follows a list of the Call of Duty games, ranked from worst to best.

13. Call of Duty: Ghosts (2013)


Ghosts had some cool set pieces set in space, but a muddled plot and some multiplayer quirks did it no favours.


Although Call of Duty: Ghosts’ single player campaign had some good set pieces and action, the game’s story about a Middle Eastern oil crisis and a South American federation threatening the US wasn’t great. But still, this was the first Call of Duty game to be released for the new-gen consoles, and it did feature great graphics, particularly on the PS4.

Regarding the multiplayer, the huge number of options for customizing player classes and large number of perks added depth, although it did made the multiplayer less accessible to newbie players. But a cooperative multiplayer mode set in rural America featuring aliens (instead of zombies…) was solid, although it is clear that Ghosts overall isn’t the best Call of Duty entry to date.
