It doesn't matter what century it is. Democracy has its enemies, and from time to time those enemies need shooting at.
With that in mind, Infinity Ward has taken its ever popular Call of Duty series out of the 1940s and World War II and into the modern era. You might have left behind the moral comfort to be had from knowing you're fighting Nazis, but now you get to play with all kinds of fancy modern doodads.
Fighting as a U.S. Marine or a British SAS soldier, you'll travel the world, dropping into troubled hotspots through a twisting and turning story to defend truth, justice and well, whatever qualifies as the American way these days.
The DS version makes use of the touch screen and stylus to create unique ways to construct explosives, disarm traps and perform hand to hand combat. See, the stylus isn't just for performing cute puzzle-type tasks, it can be used to defend democracy too!
Of course, it wouldn't be a modern Call of Duty game without multiplayer, so the game features wireless functionality that enables up to four players to jump into the fray and fight the enemies of freedom.
