Whether you're sneaking around an enemy base, rushing into a hectic battle, or silently creeping up on your targets in a ghillie suit, every part of Modern Warfare is truly wonderful to behold and the action is second to none.
Zavvi are parting with copies of the GOTY edition on the Xbox for £12.95, which is almost £3 cheaper than the next best offer of £15.85 coming in from Simply Games.
The story behind the game is fantastic and basically you'll be trying to stop a terrorist group from causing a massive international incident, by taking control of a member of the SAS as well as a US marine, depending on your current mission. Starting off the single player campaign in the middle of an SAS training facility was a particularly nice touch and you knew right from the start that this was going to be something special.
However, it didn't become apparent how special until you moved into a proper firefight or silently snuck into an are infested with hostile forces, as this is were the graphics get to show themselves off in all their glory. There are some breath taking moments in the game that probably wouldn't be anywhere near as impressive if it wasn't for their superb look, such as crawling around in long grass with a team member as an entire platoon of enemy soldiers come with inches of discovering you on a routine patrol.
Modern Warfare's online multiplayer is where things start to get really interesting though and it's easy to see why there's such a massive community, who are all completely addicted to the lightning fast, adrenaline fuelled, game modes that are on offer.
This is a game that everyone should play at least once, especially since you can now grab the GOTY edition for the bargain price of £12.95.
