Call Of Duty 4: Modern Warfare
Publisher Activision / Developer Infinity Ward / format Xbox 360
You just can’t keep a good moustache down. After years of increasing irrelevance during its initial World War II stint, Captain Price, his magnificent soup strainer and the best-selling shooter series of all time came back with an almighty bang in 2007.
With a peerless online component, and the most drum-tight single-player campaign in years, COD4 was the trigger finger-enticing total package. Over a decade on, ModernWarfare’s solo story is still a marvel. Incredibly paced, brilliantly lean and desperately tense, COD4 is arguably the most effective, revitalising franchise reboot of all time.
far right Infinity Ward’s gritty modern shooter is one of the most influential games ever.
