Beyond that primal function is the grandiose story that borrows so many themes and archetypes from the RPG universe, and the complex mechanics of progression and customisation. I'm not kidding anyone, though. Modern Warfare is, in its third incarnation, what it has always been – a rampaging shooter with a moral compass so bent out of shape, your head spins at the madness of it all. Yet really, if you want to ask questions about the morality of war as entertainment, you should perhaps begin your quest with Homer or even chess. This game isn't for you. It never was, and it never will be.

Modern Warfare 3 is a shining example of refinement and improvement. It's familiar, sure, but here familiarity doesn't breed contempt, just respect and reward for those who've dedicated so much time to the series. And for new players, it's the perfect starting point, more accommodating and encompassing than ever. The series has always been renowned for elements like the excellent sound design, the gloss, polish and compulsion of its gameplay, but with Modern Warfare 3, Infinity Ward and Sledgehammer have created a game that not only lives up to the brand hype but exceeds it. A game where the mass appeal is justified, and the expectations are met. A game which is undoubtedly going to be played for a long, long time to come, and deservedly so.

With one of the best campaigns in the series, the most refined multiplayer experience in the genre and extra modes that will absolutely hook you to the game, Modern Warfare 3 is the best Call of Duty game in recent years, and definitely the best in the Modern Warfare trilogy.

Moreover, said campaign is now much lengthier than in previous outings. I played through the game on Hardened and, without sprinting to each Checkpoint to die and trigger the next section (ie, playing the game the way it was intended *cough* Gob, *cough*), I managed to clock in around 11 and a half hours. It’s also looking mighty pretty, with a new pass on lighting that really makes the game pop (given Sledgehammer Games’ pedigree, I’d venture a lot of this was their doing). It’s also by far the most epic of the three and sells the previous games’ stories because its epicness. If you were confused at the end of Modern Warfare 2, you won’t be at the end of Modern Warfare 3.

To be clear, though: MW3 doesn’t skimp on the bold, outlandish moments along the way: guiding a motorboat between sinking tankers as New York City burns in the background is thrilling, as is chasing a terrorist-packed subway train through the dark tunnels below London. The campaign is pure spectacle, and while it doesn’t hit with the same stylized impact as Black Ops or pack the innovative spark of the first Modern Warfare, it remains a very stellar, cohesive, and staggeringly refined trek.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 treads familiar ground and focuses on tweaking rather than reinventing, and that's just fine. While there are no major revelations or surprises, this is still a gorgeously produced package that gives military shooter fans exactly what they want. There's a reason why Call of Duty is the most powerful videogame franchise of the modern era, and Modern Warfare 3 serves as a reminder -- it's just that damn good at what it does.

Modern Warfare 3 is what the fans expected - fast paced multiplayer action with some new twists and game modes that are a definitely a fresh breeze. But there are also a great campaign and the usual challenging Spec Ops.

JO: I only wish there were more choices or pathways -- something to break away from the feeling that I'm traveling down a narrow funnel. I get COD and think it's a fun experience, but only the first time I play it. After that, the campaign script becomes an uninteresting routine -- which is probably why the haters chant, "Whack-a-Mole."

Much like this year's Gears Of War 3 there is a feeling that the series has reached a logical conclusion though, and not just in terms of its storyline. Whatever comes after this will need to offer revolution not refinement, but for now the call of Modern Warfare sounds as strong as ever.

The sixteen gladiatorial arenas which will house your personal campaign of streaks, sulks, and stories are all different shapes and sizes, but all are linked by a common design philosophy catering towards tight infantry combat. Dense contrasts between interiors and exteriors - forever a staple of the series - are more pronounced than ever, though instances of sprawling multi-storey warzones have been greatly reduced since last year's Black Ops. My favourite map, Dome, recalls fond memories of Call of Duty 4's Vacant, striking the right balance between claustrophobic right-angles, useful points of cover and manic warzones.

But such is the bluster of Call of Duty that these matters can be put on hold, at least for the next two years. We can get back to enjoying what we do have - more of the Call of Duty that so dazzled in 2007. Counterbalancing a bold, brash campaign with marginally more thoughtful online options is a nice touch - not that the legions of fans need convincing. To them, Modern Warfare 3 offers the best seat in the house: the one in front of the telly.
