15 June 2008
Excerpt: Developed by Infinity Ward, Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare is the fourth installment in the Call of Duty FPS series. Many people know the Call of Duty series as the intense cinematic WWII first person shooter that started some years back and now they are finally bringing war to today. The story is set in a fictional near-future war between the United States, Europe, and Russian Loyalists against Russian Ultranationalists and Middle Eastern rebels, and features real-world...
Excerpt: It rocks! That's it. I am done. This has to be one of the fastest and easiest reviews I've had to write. I have to tell you more about Call of Duty 4: Modern warfare ? OK, um, it is digital sexiness. Not that kind; get your mind out of the gutter. I mean it is done well on all levels. Fine, I know you're not going to let me get away with just telling you it rocks, so allow me to elaborate so I can then get back to playing it.
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 hot spots.
Excerpt: The Call of Duty franchise was one that I never really got into. Sure, it was a decent game and all, but it never had that extra bit that would really draw me in and keep me playing the game for an extended period of time. Honestly, I never even completed the 2nd iteration of the series and it was mostly due to what I thought to be a drained genre: World War 2 shooters.
Conclusion: THE VERDICT: If you're a fan of Call of Duty then the choice is simple - since this is the best, most rounded in the series to date, and we hope there are many more to come. If you've never touched a COD game before, then you definitely need to weight this up against the shockingly good choice in FPS games out now and consider this a very serious contender - it's a great package.
Summary: While enemies did hide behind cover, they didn’t have the intelligence or programming to flank us or even avoid funneling through corridors straight into harm’s way. Our suspension of disbelief also suffered from the fact that some of our British comrades were nearly invincible, since they were integral cast members of the plot
Pros: Gritty war drama full of scripted spectacle and superb storytelling. Multiplayer’s even better.
Cons: Linear and short. Pushover AI hinders the immersion
