In 2007 a game came out that would change the gaming industry, and shooters forever. During the time many shooter based games were based off history, and were all the same, until COD Modern Warfare cam out. This game takes place in 2011, war breaks out after an extriemist exicutes a president of an unknown country. While this happens an ultra-nationalist movement in russia sparks civil war. You play as two characers. One of which is a U.S. Marine in the middle east, and the other as an SAS commando stopping nuclear warheads from being shipped to russian forces. One of the most heartbreaking and intense moments in the game is when the U.S. Marine soilders are attempting to escape a town just as a nuclear bomb is set off. As the explosion rises you see fellow soilders falling and helicopters and tanks be obliterates, until the blast catches up. The helicopter you're in loses control, and you are the only survivor dying of radiation. The rest of the story blends in with the SAS soilders, and thats your job to find out what happens in the end. I reccomend this game for everyone. It has easy to use controls, a sort of simple storyline, and character connectons rivaled only by those of Mass Effect and Halo.
