** Can apply to the whole series since every and each installmenet has at least oen level that shows that WarIsHell. However, it's still tought of as "the FPS series that glorifies war".

** Played with in the ''Modern Warfare'' series as making Russians and Arabs the villains is hardly controversial in American jingoistic narratives but much of the narrative is about how the entire war is a senseless waste of life. ** ''Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare'' has been accused of this with making the enemy be an evil PMC with an Anti-Christ themed Kevin Spacey as the villain.

* CowboyBebopAtHisComputer: The people who say the ''Modern Warfare'' series glorifies war and xenophobia. It's kind of hard to state that when the first game, alone shows the horrible consequences of gung-ho military adventurism while has you teamed up with Russian Loyalists the entire time. It also seems to have even skipped a lot of ''player's'' attention that the American forces are coming to ''liberate'' the unnamed Middle Eastern country. [[UnusualEuphemism And not as euphemism either since.]]

* CriticalDissonance: Boy is it ever. The games sell ''very well'' on the market. However, given the way most people treat the game, you'd wonder where on earth these millions of ''Call of Duty'' players are coming from. Hell, even the actual playerbase spends a good quarter of their online playtime claiming either the game they're currently playing or every one of its sequels are terrible.

** Any form of grenade or rocket launcher is usually decried as a "noob tube". It didn't help that one of the default classes in every ''Modern Warfare'' game before the player unlocks Create-A-Class has an assault rifle with a grenade launcher.

** During the unveiling of XboxOne, there was a presentation about the new graphics engine in ''VideoGame/CallOfDutyGhosts''. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TMYso30L9zI The "Advanced Fish AI"]] was quickly joked about because SuperMario64 did it in ''1996''.

** Black Ops: In case you didn't catch on that Dragovich was a bad guy, [[spoiler: the part when he locks up Dimitri Petrenko, the hero from World at War, and exposes him to a horrific flesh-melting chemical weapon just as a test]] should leave no doubt at all. * NintendoHard: The single player campaign for ''Finest Hour'' can be quite difficult. Abandoning the regenerating health system of later games, players had to find health kits and use them wisely. Also, your health bar itself was very small, meaning a few bursts of machine gun fire could take you out. Checkpoints were few and far between, as well as many opprotunities to get yourself killed between those sparse checkpoints. All this comes together to form a very challenging experience.

Also, your health bar itself was very small, meaning a few bursts of machine gun fire could take you out. Not to mention that now there was no GameplayAllyImmortality at any point - you had to conserve your health kits to give to your named allies. Checkpoints were few and far between, as well as many opprotunities opportunities to get yourself killed between those sparse checkpoints. All this comes together to form a very challenging experience.

* SilentMajority: Judging by the sales figures and how most people react about Call of Duty, this is a ''very'' good example of this trope. There are obviously thousands of people who think these games are very good, yet feel no need to scream about it on the internet. (or maybe they're too busy ''playing'' the game to scream about it.)

** ''Finest Hour'' has the first mission in the American Campaign, "First City to Fall". You had to escort a M12 Self-Propelled gun ([[RareVehicles a rare vehicle mind you]]) through the streets while fending off German Panzerschreks. It seems that the Germans have pinpoint accuracy while your armour support (two Sherman tanks) are almost useless to deal with them.

* ContestedSequel: ''World At War'' attracts a lot of flak for various reasons (unfair respawns in single, DarkerAndEdgier, going back to UsefulNotes/WorldWarII, being by Treyarch, etc). ''3'' does likewise, largely for pointless motion sensor gimmicks, rather dull graphics and abandoning the "major historic battles" motif in favour of being set in a series of seemingly random towns that even the French have probably never heard of.
