Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Singleplayer and Spec Ops (Xbox360)
28 November 2011

Conclusion: The ripples of the first Modern Warfare are still being felt in today’s videogames, some four years later. Back then – and it seems so long ago now – it was hard to imagine just what a towering, divisive series this supremely well-engineered, cunningly designed and quietly audacious little videogame...

For example, fire an RPG at a car to kill multiple opponents is easier than mowing them down with an AK-47.
