I recently downloaded a Call of Duty demo. The mission involved a shootout at a Russian airbase followed by a race on snowmobiles that ended in jumping it over a cliff to a waiting helicopter. It was really cool and I could see what people were saying about it being akin to a Michael Bay film. It was all over the top action, ridiculous, improbably action and it was a lot of fun. I've all seen clips from other games in the series with more crazy action like submarines converging on Paris and fighter jets racing between buildings in NYC. It seems much better then my recent purchase of Battlefield 3 which took itself so seriously it was just a downer. But I've also learned that there seems to be a lot of debate about the quality of the franchise, that all the review sites have been bribed to give the games high scores but there are so many games in the series that I'm think that there has to be at least one that everyone can agree is worth playing. Right?
