With the Playstation 3 and the X-Box 360 that game was Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. Five years later another two games in the MW series and two unrelated Call of Duty games have been released. Public attitude towards the series has cooled and sales have dipped but it’s still one of the most significant game series of all time. Although the multiplayer aspect is what kept people playing over the long term the single player campaign has done just as much to influence the industry.
In this retrospective we’ll be turning our gaze to the campaign mode of the series, as enough has been said about the multiplayer and this, at times, can overshadow the other excellent aspect of the game.
