Call Of Duty 4: Mod­ern War­fare

Pub­lisher Ac­tivi­sion de­vel­oper Infinity Ward re­lease 2007 for­mat Xbox 360 Now this is how you re­boot a se­ries. Ditch­ing the in­creas­ingly tired WW2 set­ting, Infinity Ward en­er­gised the first-per­son shooter with a bru­tal gut punch of a blaster. Com­bin­ing trou­blingly ac­cu­rate mil­i­tary tech (the de­tached mur­der from the skies in Death From Above still chills) with in­cred­i­bly im­pact­ful shoot­ing, ModernWar­fare turned COD into a colos­sus. With its for­ward-think­ing, perks-based mul­ti­player, MW helped re­write the rules for on­line shoot­ers. Yet it’s that elec­tri­fy­ing solo cam­paign that still stands out. Per­fectly paced and su­perbly var­ied, its des­per­ately tense sniper as­sas­si­na­tion quest through the ir­ra­di­ated re­mains of Pripyat re­mains per­haps the great­est mis­sion in FPS his­tory.
