Showing 1-10 of 43
Decent graphics, but linear

Summary: It seems that most shooters are going this direction. it saddens me. Refuse the follow the scripted path and plan, and you'll die with a bullet or two. Stay on the narrow path, and not much will hurt you. No thinking required. We can create worlds here, but all we get are narrow tunnels. The action is fine, but too be honest my son beat it in a few days, and a couple weeks later--and he isn't allowed to play that much--he got bored with it.
Summary: Overall: Not a bad game, but nothing eye popping either. The single player mode offered only a short story to follow - a definite minus to those with limited online speeds. The reality of the weapons was very cool, but the backgrounds seemed to lack the depth I would expect from a game like this. CoD II seemed to hold my attention better and objectives were clearer, but maybe this is more like the modern warfare that CoD 4 tries to capture. Also, the AI is predictable.
Summary: The original COD was great. Things got a little squirrely in COD2 but it was still pretty good. COD4 is quite different - heh, not WW2 but it's about stuff that is happening today - kinda like Seal Team 6, that is you are part of a small group that goes out and does heroic stuff. Rescue this guy, assasinate this guy, settle thus problem. I played it once on the easiest seeting and then went back and turned it up a notch.
Summary: You have to go through Steam, a third party. You can't just download it from them and input the serial number and play. You have to keep Steam program on the computer. I don't want to give more personal information to another company. The Steam program has to update and you have to sign into Steam to launch CoD4. If you try to remove the third party program from your computer, you can not play the game.
Summary: As per the subject... CoD4 (4-Stars) for being a great game with incompetent developers for not expanding on the game but rather wh*re out the name 'Call of Duty' for new FPS games that completely lose the CoD4 mechanics. The Steam concept looks pretty on paper but has sucked at implementation since day one and every copycat out there like it have all sucked ..
Summary: I bought this game mainly for the multiplayer but when I got the game I found out that you have to make a server for everyone to play on and that there aren't any servers working. After that big disappointment, I tried the single player and I found everything to work fine and the storyline is well made.
Summary: In recent years Call of Duty has been hitting the limelight. It all started with CoD4, Modern Warfare. Since then the franchise has been booming with World at War, Modern Warfare 2, and it's latest hit, Black Ops. This DS game is not a direct port of the classic CoD4. Unlike the console versions this one puts you in the bodies of more typical and more nameless soldiers and sets you up in very unique and interesting scenarios.
Pros: Tight controls, Fantastic multiplayer, Just plain fun
Summary: Good game, graphics ok but could be better compared to Crytek engine games for example. It's way too short though, I finished it in 2 days at the hardened difficulty. That's a major issue I think.
