Much though we love to mock and jeer the Call of Duty series for its annual regurgitations of the same old formula, one aspect of the game that we should all be eternally grateful for remaining unchanged is the inclusion of split-screen multiplayer.
While even the traditionally split-screen-friendly Halo series has dropped the feature for its latest outing (much to the chagrin of fans), CoD has stuck to its guns and included full four-player split-screen online support for all the multiplayer mode, zombies, as well as two-player support for the entire main campaign. In addition, you can fill up the competitive multiplayer modes with bots, allowing for plenty of fun gameplay scenarios where each player leads their own bot team into battle.
Sure, you'll be sacrificing some of that buttery-smooth fast-paced performance, but who cares when you can high-five or punch your buddies next to you?
