In Call of Duty 4 – Modern Warfare players play as either the British SAS or the US armed forces as they face a tide of terrorist activity on home and foreign soil, with locations such as England, Russia and the Middle East. This intense, adrenaline-fuelled action game can also be played online with friends and people from all over the world. In the multiplayer mode you play as either the terrorists or the SAS/Army, and it is this multiplayer function that has made Call of Duty 4 – Modern Warfare one of the most popular first-person shooter games ever.
The Call of Duty franchise is huge, one of the biggest gaming franchises in the world. Call of Duty began life as a Word War one game and, although it achieved some popularity and respect on the pC, it didn’t exactly conquer the world. Call of Duty two, set during the Second World War, was more popular than its predecessor, but it still didn’t break the mould. People seemed to have tired of shooting games set during the first and second world war and the tide was changing.
A number of years later, Call of Duty 4 – Modern Warfare was released and the Call of Duty brand skyrocketed. The game was adored by everyone across all platforms and it ushered in a new era of online gaming. Call of Duty released many more games after that, often at a rate of more than 1 a year, but although many of them sold more copies than Call of Duty 4 – Modern Warfare, and broke new ground, Call of Duty 4 – Modern Warfare is still rated by many as the best game in the whole series.
