Definately worth buying, if you didn't know that already.

Summary: This game was an absolute delight, buying new meant that I could go online without a previous owner still using the game code for themselves on multiplayer. Haven't tried the campaign yet as I have already completed it on my Xbox 360 but I can safely say that the campaign is one of the best around.
Great game on the MAC but no gamepad controller support

Summary: As the title says, this is a great game. I own COD 4 and Modern Warfare 2 on the PS3 and see no difference in game quality or speed between the games console and the Mac Pro and the Macbook I use to run this game when travelling. Having searched the internet high and low on how to get the PS3 USB or Bluetooth attached controller to work with the game (there are ways to do it), the methods needed are complex and highly technical.
Summary: An absolutly fantastic and engrossing game! All the reviews at true. However it is fairly short and once you've completed it there is little real excitement in going back unless you go for the much celebrated multiplayer mode, where you can join teams of other players to complete missions as a squad. But on a mac the multiplayer mode DOES NOT work (or at least I could never get it to work and found loads of similar comments on line).
Summary: 'Call of Duty 4' is about as close as you'll get to being part of an elite team of SAS/Marine soldiers working against the clock to stop some nuclear terrorism. The attention to detail is stunning, the gameplay is natural and realistic and the sense of danger is handled well. The orchestral score is also a plus; many war games rely on loud , pumping muzak. This score is more 'Saving private Ryan' than 'Top Gun'.
Summary: Having played this game a little on the PC, I knew what I was in for in terms of quality and gameplay - however, I started playing about 3pm Saturday afternoon, and even with several hours of breaks, I'd completed all of the solo missions (on medium mode) by 2am. I reckon I got about 5-6 hours play out of it. Obviously you can got through again on Veteran and Expert mode, but I really wanted (and expected) more single player missions than that.
