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: First Impressions My reaction is D ear Mom & Dad, It’s been more than 3 days now and I’ve hardly eaten good food or used a proper toilet. People use cactus here to wipe their bottoms and I’m never going to complain about parched toilet paper again! The commies here are ruthless mashed-potato eaters and they’re a far cry from the Nazi’s I fought back in the days.
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.
Excerpt: Just call it the anti- Crysis . If Crytek’s immersive next-gen messiah is suppose to usher in a revolutionary era of open-ended shooters, Infinity Ward’s Call of Duty 4 shows us why linear missions and wholly scripted gameplay aren’t ready to be replaced yet. The shift in this series’ setting to modern day brings more high-tension gunplay and explosive ambiance than any game in recent memory.
Pros: Gritty war drama full of scripted spectacle and superb storytelling. Multiplayer’s even better.
Cons: Linear and short. Pushover AI hinders the immersion
Conclusion: Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare is a fine, fine game. The graphics are gritty and real, while also vibrant and stunning, and the sound design is arguably without peer. The archaic design is disappointing, but the variety of it is rewarding and fun. It’s worth noting that the game is very linear, and heavily reliant on scripted events; but there’s nothing wrong with an amazing experience that’s only amazing the first time.
Conclusion: The amount of excitement COD4 has generated is completely justified. Infinity Ward has proven once again what happens when a developer takes their time, does the research and puts in the effort to do things correctly with a game. While many other games try for a Hollywood block-buster feel, Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare pulls it off like no one else ever has and does so in great fashion.
Pros: Amazing graphics, fantastic music and voice overs, exciting gameplay, big budget Hollywood movie-like experience, extensive multiplayer options will extend the value of the game for a long time to come;
Cons: Like other Call of Duty titles missions are linear and rely on the player to move things forward, console-like checkpoint save system.
