The trademark orchestral Call of Duty pomp is in full effect for the score, but with some moments of relatively quiet subtlety. Vocal performances and weapon sounds are excellent.
Gorgeous, realistic cut-scenes lend weight to Modern Warfare's war-torn drama, while multiplayer is slick as ever. A truly stunning game to look at – and it bloody should be given the ludicrous install size. Price's 'tache is glorious too.
As eminently playable as ever, Modern Warfare polishes the series' trademark gunplay making it the tightest it's ever been. While we're certain that some will find something to gripe about, for what it's worth, we couldn't find anything. And we looked really, really hard too.
Modern Warfare's story plays fast and loose with facts, but treat it as a work of fiction (which it is) and you'll enjoy a cinematic ride that ends with a teaser suggesting more Modern Warfare to come. Multiplayer remains utterly essential (Ground War being an interesting new addition) and Spec Ops is a tough but enjoyable slice of co-op.
A very good list that dispenses with conventional progression-based objectives in favour of actually completing certain tasks during the campaign. Multiplayer achievements are out, and there's a single Spec Ops one for simply finishing the missions.
