Many have said that the Call of Duty series is being stretched, with one game hitting the shelves every year. It’s like a ritual for every gamer, the poor ones download it and the rich ones buy it. But no one ignores it, because every game in the series promises and delivers Michael Bay-esque thrills and scenes that keep you hooked ’till the very end. After all, not every game lets you walk around in a bullet proof suit, control AC-130 gunships that rain down withering fire from the skies and engage in warfare of epic proportions. The latest installment in the Call of Duty series, Modern Warfare 3, delivers that and much more.
Modern Warfare 3
Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past decade, you are probably familiar with Call of Duty, so I’ll skip the basics and launch into the review. Spoilers ahead in case you’ve ignored the previous CoD games. If you haven’t then I suggest you skip this part, it’s just a recap of events that took place in the previous MW games.
Modern Warfare 2 saw a grievously injured Soap MacTavish being escorted to a helicopter in the desert sands of Afghanistan by Captain Price and Nikolai. Soap and Price had killed the rogue General Shepherd and were on the run, pursued by both Uncle Sam’s army and the mercenaries of the ultra-nationalist terrorist Makarov. With the help of Nikolai’s men, including one Yuri, an ex-Spetsnaz, and the help of a Delta Force Unit, they hope to stop Makarov in his plan to destroy the United States of America and almost all of Europe. It’s a fantastic journey that takes you through India, America, Berlin, France, the United Kingdom and the Middle East.
