GodisaGeek: "Whether you like it or not, the Call of Duty franchise has pushed both software and hardware in the current generation to its limits. With unmatchable sales that continue to break records year after year, the franchise has become a household name. Over the iterations, Call of Duty has continued to set the bar for the FPS genre. The big questions on the lips of gamers this year was “Will Modern Warfare 3 be a 2.5?” and “Will Battlefield 3 be the better game?”
In the run-up to Modern Warfare 3′s release, the answer to those questions was anybody’s guess. While there was a flurry of information regarding Spec Ops, multiplayer and Activision’s new subscription service, Elite, there wasn’t too much to be known about the story. We got a few teasers telling us it would be set all around the world, in the midst of a “global confict”, but not much more than that. With the game now out, we played through it to see if Infinity Ward and Sledgehammer Games has pushed the envelope of the genre even further than that of previous Call of Duty titles."
