Jump right into the middle of the action! 0

I'll start out by admitting that I'm not a past fan of the Call of Duty games, though not out of dislike, more out of ignorance or just never having a chance to play them. Call of Duty 4 is my first true step into the series and on the subject matter I'd say it's akin to stepping out onto the middle of a battlefield without going through boot camp first. So yes, I died a lot, it's pretty realistic and hard, but most importantly it's intense and immersive.The single player story is short, I'll ge...

One of if not THE best shooter ever. 0

Call of Duty 4 modern warfare is a first person shooter developed by Infinity Ward that brings the Call of Duty series from the stale WW2 Setting to the fresh and exiting world of Modern Warfare.The Single player portion of the game has follows an SAS trooper named "Soap" and a American Marine named Paul Jackson, the game swaps between the two soldiers perspectives every couple of levels which keeps the game settings fresh.Soaps missions are more stealth focused but the game allows you to go cha...

Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare Review 0

Call of Duty 4 : Modern Warfare, made Call Of Duty veterans every where want to cry when it was announced that it would be taking a big jump in history from the WW2 genre, to modern warfare. Eventually the community finally gave in, and accepted the fact, that this once majorly competitive WW2 FPS, was now being changed radically into a modern warfare game.The WW2 feel to the genre was lost, but the Call Of Duty feel of game play was still intact, with a few added bonuses. Call of Duty 4 was an ...

The city of Warsville. 0

The 18-35 male is a valuable commodity. They have the kind of money that allows them to afford $500 consoles, and thus makes them the hot target for developers. They work part time jobs at your local supermarket and are usually in some form of debt in spite of their spending habits. In their free time, they enjoy multiple energy drinks, weed to ease the energy drink buzz, and UFC because there are fewer highs more sweet than a good ground and pound. And their hero? The soldier. The partially unk...

Clever titles--like anime--are for jerks! 0

 I just found this old CoD 4 review I wrote hangin' around on Gamespot, so enjoy it (or not)!  SPOILER WARNING: Click here to reveal hidden content.This game contains awesomeness. Call of duty 4: Modern Warfare is a game people will be talking about for a long time. It is an amazing game that is also a breath of fresh air from the recent "halo style" shooters that have become so popular. Not to say that there haven't been realistic shooters recently, its just that none of them have come close to...

Why is this game so good? 0

I never liked the original COD games.  They seemed too cinematic and the multiplayer games were not good.  So it was really on a whim that I purchased COD4 three days after it was released.  OMG!!!  The single player campaign is fast paced and really well done.  There is great mission variety and most can be completed using different strategies.  It was short, but it was one of the best SP FPS games I ever played.  It was so good I went back and attempted to beat every mission on Veteran difficu...

An astonishing package all around. 0

Having won numerous awards at E3 and being surrounded by hype, Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare already seemed like it would be one of the games of the year. Now that it is finally out, it has lived up to all of its expectations and then some. I have played Call of Duty 1, United Offensive, Finest Hour, Big Red One, COD2 and COD3, but this game is by far the best yet in the series. First off, the graphics and sound take this series to a once-thought unreachable level. The framerate never drops and...

Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare Review 0

    Call of Duty 4 sets the series in the modern day for the first time. It departs from the beaches of Normandy of World War II and heads to the Middle East and Eastern Europe of modern day. The game sets a new standard for the military first person shooter. It has a very dense and intense, although short, single player campaign that will have you coming back for more with its deep multi-player component.     The presentation is very well done, the graphics and overall feel of the game is amaz...

Call of Duty 4 does it even better. 0

 I've been playing the Call of Duty series since the beginning, the original PC release. I've enjoyed every single one and actually have played them through more than a few times. The multiplayer in all of them have been extremely impressive. I'm probably one of the few minor people that aren't sick of the WWII games. I love them. I just hate that they all are the same exact thing. At least Return to Castle Wolfenstein took a different approach. However, Call of Duty has always been fun because ...

Best In Series. 0

Wow, I just finished beating the single player campaign on this game , and what a thrill ride. This game definitely deserves all the praise it has received by both critics and gamers alike.The graphics are outstanding. On max settings this game is one of the best looking out there right now. Lots of awesome lighting, shadow, and particle effects as well as some pretty good textures. The game also has a pretty fluid frame-rate and only a little bit of pop-in but that trelies more on your computer...

CoD4 Review 0

If the Call of Duty series has been one thing, it most certainly has been action packed, with each installment offering something new in the World War 2 FPS genre, whilst every Call of Duty game has been great, even some settings get dull. World War 2 is such a saturated market for FPS's that most of the games just blur into one, this is why is it so good to see Infinity Ward march into "new" territory.Call of Duty 4 is all about the thrills of modern day warfare, ranging from missions over Euro...

A Great Single Player, And The Best Online PSN Game. 0

After Call of Duty 2, Infinity Ward handed Call of Duty 3 over to a different publisher Treyarch which did a decent job. After awhile, they announced they are ditching the World War 2 story and going Modern and what a great choice. Now Infinity Ward has released there next game Call of Duty 4 and may have been the best game of 2007. Throughout Call of Duty 4's story you will go through many exciting battles. Sometimes you will be with a squad of soldiers and sometimes just one other teammate....

Target Acquired. 0

Activision released their fourth installment to the Call Of Duty games, titled Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. The game was very in-depth, with a high amount of detail put into every aspect of the game. From popping car's tires, to shooting through materials such as wood and sheet metal, this game is the closest thing yet to actually being in service.Unlike the other Call Of Duty games, this title takes place in present day, with all of the current weapons and tactics used now. The gameplay is v...

Best Game Ever 0

This was/is the best game ever. The campaign was pretty fun, and very hard on the veteren.  The multiplayer is the best part about this game.  The multiplayer was way better than Modern Warfare 2's, and World at War's. Those were both good games, with better campaigns, but the multiplayer for Call of Duty 4 is much better. It also has a great replay value, i have like 20 days played online. ...

An epic singleplayer experience and an awesome multiplayer part. 0

Call of Duty 4 is definitely an epic game. Epic Single-player, epic multi-player, epic graphics, epic voice acting and so on. Its not just a normal casual shooter, it stands out in its own way and it really feels good to sit down and play it. The only thing thats sad is that the Single-player is really short, maybe 4-5 hours for a normal first person shooter gamer, but you want to play it over again, just to see the awesome thing happening again. Now into more detail: Graphics: In graphics, th...

Great storyline and locations that don't let you get bored for a second. 0

Great storyline and locations that don't let you get bored for a second. Not bad graphics, though I never got used to the green smoke thing. They should fix this any time soon. It's really annoying. :)The one thing I didn't like is the fact that the guys the game is throwing to you are like...thousands. Which could have been fine, if it wasn't the fact that you can kill up to six or seven baddies before they manage to hurt you badly enough to force you look for cover. Bad guys just tend to die e...

Just short of perfect.. 0

I got to thinking about this one the other day when Activision announced that the ‘Call of Duty’ name is back in the Modern Warfare 2 title…….whatever Activision, what we have here is an awesome military first person shooter and it’s upcoming sequel should be as great if not better. Here’s my thoughts on the game that took the series out of the tired WW2 theme (which Activision made sure to take it back to). I played through it on the Xbox360, the same experience can be had on the PC and the PS3...

If one believes the hype it is currently the second best PS3 game right after GTA4, clocking in at a shiny 94/100 on metacritic, but well, I don't trust reviews, so I played trough it myself (single-player campaign only, 'cause I don't do multiplayer).If there is one thing that Call of Duty 4 does really well it is giving a nice demonstration of all the things that are wrong with video games these days. The graphics and presentation is nicely polished for sure, but that doesn't help much here, s...

Doesn't revolutionize the genre but perfects it. 0

Infinity Ward’s Call of Duty 4 does not do anything revolutionary, or that much different than other first person shooters, but it has instead perfects the formula. In single player you play as both an SAS operative Soap MacTavish, U.S. Marine Paul Jackson, and Lieutenant Price. The plot is delivered well through mission briefings, and a first person perspective. This with the plot twists make for a very enjoyable experience. The game’s missions aren’t only shooting your way to your objective. T...

COD4 is a great game, although it is in no way perfect 0

For a while now, the Call of Duty series has just been based on WW2.  The previous games in the series were great, all recreating famous battles from World War Two. The series also had its trademark iron sights, which was the key to aiming successfully and killing your enemies on the battlefield. But, as somebody pointed out, people have been making games about WW2 for longer than the war actually lasted. Infinity Ward obviously realised this, and decided to give the series a much need overhaul...

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 0

Let me start off by saying that this is probably one of the best games i have ever played. 1. Single Player. The single player is not very long which is a shame, but the missions they have are the best of the series. You start off as a new character named soap. You basically go through the missions like any other game in the series, but one thing has changed. Since this title is called Modern Warfare, we use modern weapons! Unlike the other WWII based games this one is more realistic and is a ...

Short but sweet single player, and a highly addictive multiplayer 0

The single player mode of this game is short, but oh is it sweet. several seriously immersive and intense moments (in particular the sniper level) make it memorable. The multiplayer is where its really at though. I've got nearly 10 days clocked in online with this game. Its super addictive but not for some mindless dumb reason, its really just so much fun. Theres lots of depth, strategy, and skill involved in this game. Theres great weapons, great maps, great graphics, great ranking system, grea...

This game is so good, i still play it over my new games! 0

Enter Soap MacTavish and Phil Jackson, part of the S.A.S. and the U.S. marines. They are on a series of missions to uphold Russia's backlash created by the ultimatist leaders. The game basically revolves around that aspect. You have to do a series of missions where you have to progress further to find these leaders or you have to actually kill them. There are four difficulties in this game, recruit, regular, hardened and veteran. Recruit is for beginners, regular is one step higher. The differen...

A bit over-rated by the gaming media, but solid if not flawed. 0

    Call Of Duty 4 was released last year to overwhelming praise, a bit undeserved in my mind, but not something I took into account when reviewing the game.     Call Of Duty 4 as you probably know is a first person shooter from Infinity Ward in their long running Call Of Duty series. The single player game plays out as a fairly standard FPS that we've seen done to death since the original Call Of Duty . It's not a bad formula to say, but after Call Of Duty, Call Of Duty: United Offensive, and C...

Scripted sequences again? Oh boy! 0

This game actually blows ass. I tried it on the hardest difficulty setting and it wasn't bad, until I got to the TV station. WTF? Infinite respawning enemies, who spam grenades at you every 3 seconds. Why should I try and play it realistically when you give me no cover system and infinite enemies magically coming out of a door. The enemies just stream out of that door and never stop coming. I can sit back and snipe them and snipe them and kill again and again and they'll never lessen. Apparently...

A giant Dissapointment. This is Not OK 0

Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare is the latest edition to Activision's long-running Call of Duty series.  Usually this brand name is set in the 1940s during WW2.  However Infinity Ward has realized the falling of WW2 games and has made one of the games smartest decisions; move the game into the modern day.  While this brings us to a time we can better understand with and fancier guns; did the game suffer or benefit from this.  A little but mostly no.Story-Unusual for a shooter is that the story mo...

Over-Hyped 0

  With throngs of bros and fanboys rushing to get the latest kill simulator known as “Modern Warfare 2” from their local shopkeeps, I thought it would be appropriate to talk about the original that started this craze, “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.” A game that everyone heralded to be so good that it blew Halo out of the water in terms of FPS dominance, and thanks to a billion dollar marketing campaign, it would have you believe in that hype (and is trying to do it again, mind you.) And in truth...

Call of Duty 4 Weaponry Review 0

    One of my favorite aspects of Call of Duty 4 is the huge arrangement of weapon choice, and what can be done with them.  In no other game can you customize your guns to the same extent as CoD4.  Not only is the amount of choice amazing, but the work Infinity Ward put into making the weapons realistic is mind-boggling.  The distinct sound of each individual weapon to the way they are handled displays this commitment to excellence that makes CoD4 so enjoyable.      Customization: so much to ch...

Flawed multiplayer, but a fun campaign 0

People are talking about COD4's experience-based multiplayer as a groundbreaking achievement in online shooters, and I find much to disagree about there. Basically, as you gain experience for kills and accomplishing missions, you open up more and more guns and mission types.There is a flaw with this system, which is that everyone starts out with a poorly aimed pea shooter of a gun and must unlock the ones that can actually wipe you out fairly quickly. These guns are in the hands of the skilled p...

It's an amazing game that is worth your time and money. 0

CoD4 is by far the best shooter on the Xbox 360, and it achieves this high mark by delivering the most amazing action sequences a game of its type has yet to reproduce. Let alone that it's an incredible good looking and well sounding game. It manages to bridge people who just like to shoot things in a video game to people that are looking for an intense and meaningful storyline that makes you feel as your really making a difference out in the battlefield. I think the reason why this is such a ...

The greatest shooter multiplayer ever... 0

Call of Duty 3 was a decent game, with nothing special. Call of Duty 4 is a whole other ball game. Infinity Ward is back as the developer, and they have never been better. Call of Duty 4 Modern Warfare leaves its WWII battlegrounds, (Hence the subtitle Modern Warfare)and heads for the Modern Era. By far the best game of the year. Everyone says the Campaign is short, and they mean it. There aren't a lack of missions, but the missions themselves aren't very long. The first mission can be complete...

This obviously creates much dispute between the fans of the series, often fans of one such companies offerings refuse to purchase the others. However, I think I speak for myself here, Infinity Ward have obviously outdone the competition with Call of Duty 4 : Modern Warfare.The Storyline is based around the Present Day, in which a British soldier "Soap" Mactavish is selecte...

Multiplayer Madness 0

Call Of Duty 4: Modern Warfare on the Xbox 360 is the first game which got me properly addicted. Every kill in the multiplayer in Team Death matches earns 10 points. As you gain more points, you go up levels, and as you go up more levels, you unlock more guns and perks. This process takes longer and longer as the points required to advance another level get larger the more levels you go up. For example it is possible to get from level 1 to level 2 in about 5 minutes, but it will take several gam...

call of duty 4 is one of the best games I have ever played 0

Every now and then there comes a game that doesn't revolutionize the gaming world but has enough in it that it is an instant hit. Call of duty 4 is such a game. Right from the onset on the game you will find yourself immersed in it. I had more fun in the first couple levels(The prologue) than I have ever had in a FPS before and that is saying a lot. The game makes you feel as though you are part of a team and what you are doing and experiencing is real. You play the game through the eyes of an ...

Call of Duty 4 Review 0

Personally, I thought Call of Duty 4 was a good game. The best game? No, but it is worth buying. The story mode is as long as it needs to be, and the graphics are very nice. However, like most FPS games, the story mode is linear. Still, after beating the game, it's still fun to go through it one more time(especially if you're playing on Veteran). Multiplayer is probably the best part of the game, and has many different game types. This helps make the multiplayer a little less repetitive, as well...

I was wondering when the CoD series was going to progress past WW2 and was pleased to see that at last they have. CoD4 is simply the best, in my opinion, FPS on the market. First the graphics are superb and especially in HD. The details in the environments is brilliant and really brings the game to life. The gameplay is intense with fast paced action mixed with stealth based missions. The pace can be difficult at the start especially on multiplayer but you quickly get used to and realise how sl...
