X360A: "Love or hate Call of Duty, you have to respect what the franchise has done this generation of consoles. Year on year, not only is it the biggest video game release in terms of sales and what not, but in the span of 5 or so years, it's propelled itself from a much-loved first-person shooter to become the biggest entertainment release of the year. It's a humongous franchise, and that's mostly down to its multiplayer. The pick-up-and-play, fast-paced action has not only got its fair share of core gamers sinking hours into it week after week, but it's been a huge hit with the mainstream masses too. Here we are then, on the vanguard of a new generation and today attention worldwide turned to Call of Duty's next-generation offering, and we went hands-on with it to see how it was shaping up."
