With 20 multiplayer maps and a Zombies mode that'll get bigger over time, you have loads to sink your teeth into in the package. (image credit: Activision)
Vanguard might not rip up the rulebook, but it's a solid COD that's well worth picking up if you're a fan of the series. (image credit: Activision)
