Call of Duty: Ghosts

With enough additions to single and multiplayer gameplay, it genuinely feels like an advancement of the series.

Set in an alternate Call of Duty universe, the all-new storyline centres around brothers Logan and Hesh (and their dog Riley), who must tackle a South American uprising threatening to take a stranglehold of US territory as it pushes north.

As is customary for the series, the single player campaign delivers a number of explosive, memorable shooter set pieces, while also mixing up gameplay from pure run-and-gun to include alternative missions underwater, in the air and, yes, viewed through the eyes of the dog.

It’s fast-paced engaging stuff and an excellent prelude to the overhauled multiplayer mode.

Here, huge upgrades are immediately apparent through unprecedented customisation options (9,000 possible combinations), bigger maps and also seven new game modes.

Ghosts is a package bursting with arresting action content and another essential purchase for shooter fans.
