We’d argue that Uncharted 2: Among Thieves had the greatest ever set-pieces, but Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare was host to some pretty spectacular ones, too. In many ways, that game's playable cinematic moments paved the blueprints for Activision’s first-person franchise as it rose through the commercial ranks, and the upcoming Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare appears to be following the familiar format.

Indeed, the title’s latest gameplay demo starts with a Need for Speed-esque driving sequence, and closes with the collapse of the Golden Gate Bridge. There’s a bit of nifty editing going on to ensure that that chaotic conclusion is reached within seven or so minutes – but that’s a pretty destructive turn of events even for the popular military brand. Still, there’s no denying that developer Sledgehammer Games’ next-gen focus is paying dividends here – this looks nuts.
