With the annual Call of Duty game on the way from Treyarch later this year, fans who missed the sixth iteration can now pick up Modern Warfare 2 from Game for just £19.98. Seven pounds shy from the next cheapest offer, this is the best deal around, so don't hesitate!
Modern Warfare 2 rocked the financial and critical markets in November of last year. It sold 4.7 million copies in just 24 hours, and earned an average rating of 94 at MetaCritic.
Modern Warfare 2 picks up several years after the events of the original. Task Force 141, an elite team of soldiers, are tasked with defeating Vladimir Makarov, a Russian terrorist hellbent on igniting World War 3. Your journey, told from multiple perspectives, takes you from the snow-capped mountains of Central Asia to the rundown favelas of Brazil.
Modern Warfare 2 gained a certain amount of infamy for a particular scene in the game. As Private Joseph Allen, recently recruited to Task Force 141, you infiltrate Makarov's inner-circle and join him as he and his team massacre civilians in a Russian airport. You can choose to join in the slaughter, or merely watch from the side-lines. The media publicly condemned Infinity Ward for creating this scene, despite the nature and subject matter of the level being largely similar to numerous scenes from films like Munich or Heat.
