Despite the fact Modern Warfare 2 continues to bestride the first person-shooter-market like a colossus - overshadowing pretty much every other shooter title six months down the line – that's not to say that the original can't still hold it's head high as one of the best FPS titles. So if you’re in the market for a good price on Infinity Ward’s original Modern Warfare, you can pick up the GOTY edition for £17.85 from Shopto. This deal includes both the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game, with Xbox owners enjoying a saving of over £3 on the next best price, while the PS3 version comes in almost £8 cheaper.
COD4: MW alternates between two different story-lines, focusing initially upon S.A.S member Soap MacTavish and then the exploits of an American Special forces squad deployed to the Middle East. Although the game has some emphasis upon realism – it only takes a few bullets to die and the ballistics system is superb – MW does retain the cinematic, slightly linear feel of previous Call of Duty titles. However it’s not like you pay much attention to the slightly choreographed nature of the missions as Infinity Ward hurl you into the most intensive, fast-paced and visceral experience of war portrayed by almost any videogame.
The only real problem is that it’s all over much too quickly as the single player campaign is surprisingly short. That said however, it’s the multiplayer dimension which really gives you value for money. The GOTY edition also provides four extra multiplayer maps initially unavailable in the original edition – except for as a paid download. So if you’ve been waiting for an opportunity to pick up a copy of Modern Warfare at a decent price, this Shopto deal is definitely worth consideration.
