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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
