7h-ish. Hardened difficulty. Completed Operation Chaos but not Red Circus.
I'm the rare sort of guy that still plays Call of Duty for the campaign only, and I have to say, Cold War didn't disappoint. While the plot wasn't as consistent as in the Modern Warfare games (I'm not a fan of the whole "you've been brainwashed and the whole thing has been a lie" thing), the setting is very original and the gameplay has been spiced up with some stuff that CoD never tried before, like lockpicking, side-missions or non-action levels. Gameplay-wise, the Cold War campaign is very solid.
Also, the game is graphically very pretty. RT has been used to its full effect and the mood lightning in the levels is really effective. Some say that Modern Warfare looks better - I don't really know, as I didn't have a RT-capable GPU back then. But even if it's true, Cold War still looks impressive.
My Score: ★★★★☆
