Tim Ashdown writes: "Call of Duty (CoD) is back with another addition to Activision's yearly action franchise, and this time not only is it personal, but also global. Lock and load for for a globetrotting adventure of scripted action at it's finest. Fight through the streets of Paris, the London Tube system, villages of Sierra Leone and even the cramped quarters of a Russian submarine as it threatens to wipe the entire eastern seaboard clean off the map. Aside from the great single-player experience, Modern Warfare 3 (MW3) also features a robust yet slightly stagnant multiplayer mode, and the surprisingly compelling Special Ops mode which is where the game stretches its cooperative legs. It's a solid package the most people can get behind, but as other shooters continue to push the envelope in the realm of multiplayer, it's possible that MW3's multiplayer might just get left in the dust."
