If you've resisted all of the hype surrounding the Call of Duty series then at this price it's time you sampled what still is one of the most popular multiplayer shooters and offers a visceral adaptation of modern warfare in a pulse-racing FPS. If you've been living under a rock CoD4:MW, for that is what the kids like to call it, caused the most noise of all recent combat games. Unlike previous outings of the Call of Duty series, you weren't left trudging through the French countryside or freezing outside Leningrad but were thrown into a startlingly recognisable modern setting.
Its intertwined multi-threaded story throws you between stealthy missions with the SAS to full assaults riding with USMC soldiers. With a movie-style feel to the whole presentation it's one of the best told in gaming history, arguably more so than its successor Modern Warfare 2. The price has slowly been falling on CoD4:MW and this is currently its lowest price.
