Though I'm not that fond of the COD series simply because I am bored of military shooters, I have to admit that one of the last times I was blown away by a video game was as the Fire Team fled the sinking ship at the beginning of "Modern Warfare 2".
They did such a good job that I was actually considering getting "Modern Warfare 3" when it suddenly dawned on me...
It's not being made by Infinity Ward.
We seem to have forgotten that Activision fell out with Infinity Ward and sacked the lead developers on the Team.
Now "Modern Warfare 3" is being described as "currently being developed by Infinity Ward and Sledgehammer Games with Raven Software assisting in development".
So will it sell a lot of copies?
Of course it will. It's the latest COD man and ask any teenager and they'll tell you it's the best game ever.
Will it actually be worth buying?
I'm not going to chance it this time around.
At least we should thank Activision for killing a tired genre.
