Summary: CoD 4: Modern Warfare is a new action-thriller that will arm gamers with the most advanced and powerful arsenal of modern day firepower to fight a new war in the world’s most treacherous hotspots.
Excerpt: The task is nearly Herculean. Take the Call of Duty franchise, known for its cinematic spectacle, and make a version for the Nintendo DS, not known for its super-duper advanced graphics. So you've got to admire the developers at n-Space for their pluck and determination. They've attempted nothing less than their own pocket-sized rollercoaster ride of an epic war shooter.
While game developers Infinity Ward didn't have any part of Call of Duty 3 after developing the first and second installments, they are back on the job for Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare

Conclusion: Only time will tell if the switch from World War II theme to modern day warfare is a bright move for the Call of Duty franchise. For fans of the series who don't like the idea, this may only be a one-time thing, and then switch back to WWII warfare in COD 5. Who knows? All we know is COD 4 looks pretty promising and will have no trouble competing with other shooter war games alike.
Conclusion: Is COD 4 for the DS worth the time? Yes. Will it be the greatest FPS you will ever play? Probably not, but then again this is a DS title. What it will deliver is a campaign long enough to keep players busy, and more importantly, interested throughout. Plus if you like the controls, there is a multiplayer mode for up to four players with games like free for all and capture the flag, and enough map options to not feel too stale too fast.
