Call of Duty 4: MW Game of the Year Edition £17.85 @ shopto [Xbox 360/PS3 Games]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.

I bought this the other day for PS3 and still cant get obnline with it...dont know why but as soon as I go to multiplayer option on the menu everything goes weird...

every 6 seconds it freezes everything for 3 seconds....then carries on repeating the cycle. It downloads the settings each time I choose multiplayer option, then when I go to FIND GAME it doesnt bring up the list of game types...just the grey box thats empty, it just says DOWNLOADING SETTINGS again...and stops there, just sits downloading nothing

tried re-setting router etc...its just this 1 disc

anyone else had this problem?

hi there, thought i better comment on this. i bought the goty edition, brand new, from amazon about a month ago at ~£18, believing that it comes with the 4 additional maps. unfortunately it does not. there are two versions of the goty game, one with the voucher for the maps, one without. there were very few copies distributed that included the voucher, and this is a warning to others that this will NOT include extra maps. you WILL have to pay for the maps. dont get conned, like me.

there are many topics at playstation forums about GOTY edition and the (excluded) maps, if you want to google it.
