Call of Duty, Modern Warfare
Unlike Infinity Ward's previous iterations of Call of Duty, Modern Warfare tells one contiguous story. Though you will hop between perspectives of the British S.A.S. and the U.S. Marines, each leap continues the progression of a single storyline. It's an effective tool. While the story itself--which revolves around stolen Russian nukes and Mid-Eastern terrorists bent on destroying the Great Satan (that's you and your grandma)--isn't exactly cutting edge, it's enjoyable. And more importantly, IW finds ways to make you care for every last one of your teammates. Of course, no good guys die in war, right? There aren't so much "twists" as there are shocking moments in the storyline. You may find yourself in disbelief not only at some of the events that take place, but in the direct manner in which the most startling moments are often told. There are a few too many shell-shocked slow-mo moments that seem to drag to the point of almost being frustrating, but credit Infinity Ward for not backing down from wartime melodrama.
If you played the original Call of Duty or its sequel, then you will have little trouble hopping into COD4. This is not a revolution of game controls. Infinity Ward maintains its smart system of rewarding players for aiming down the sight before firing; you can run from cover to cover (an absolute necessity to survive the utter insanity in some of the levels); you have a one-click melee attack; there are a few highlighted spots that require a button press to interact with (how else would one plant C4 on an AA gun?); and yes you can once again pick up live grenades and throw them back at the enemy.Read full review...
This game was simply amazing. The graphics and storyline were very good, and it was easy to learn. There were no "super moves" where you have to press multiple buttons in a sequence that had to be memorized perfectly. Another thing I loved about it was that you did not always have to follow the directions you were given by someone, like in the level All Ghillied Up, there were several times where Cpt. Macmillan said to quitely kill some people without anyone noticing you, and you can stand up and kill him right in front of the other guy, but if you do that a bunch of more enemies come with dogs, but if you exchande your pistol for one of their automatic weapons after you kill one, it gets way easier.There is a few thing I dont like about this game, and one the instruction manual. Its not really anything that most people care about, but I like it when it has all the weapons in the game and their descriptions and what their good for. It doesn't ruin the game, but I still would like it if it had that. The other thing I dont like is that when I play online it only takes me to like ten different maps, this game would be better if it had more online maps. I aslo didn't like how short the game was, I finished it in about two hours, and on Call of Duty World at War it took me much longer to finish. Speaking of World at War, I think that this game should have something like Nazi Zombies on it, it wouldn't have to be exactly the same as it, but something like it would be nice. This is my review on Call of Duty Modern Warfare for the ps3.Read full review...
Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare
This game is ne of my personal faves in the entire Call of Duty series. It campaign mode pulls you in and the graphics are so good it is like you are actually gunning down the Ultranationalists or Iraqi insurgents. Gamestop gave it this review.
War rages on in the fourth edition of Activision's acclaimed war game. For the first time in the series, Call of Duty moves away from WWII to the modern battlefield. The new action-thriller from the award-winning team at Infinity Ward, the creators of the Call of Duty series, delivers the most intense and cinematic action experience ever. Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare arms gamers with an arsenal of advanced and powerful modern day firepower and transports them to the most treacherous hotspots around the globe to take on a rogue enemy group threatening the world. As both a United States Marine and British S.A.S. soldier fighting through an unfolding story full of twists and turns, players use sophisticated technology, superior firepower and coordinated land and air strikes on a battlefield where speed, accuracy and communication are essential to victory. The epic title also delivers an added depth of multiplayer action providing online fans an all-new community of persistence, addictive and customizable gameplay.Read full review...
Amazing game... revolutionary
This game shatters ALL OTHER first person shooters out there. Call of Duty has reinvented itself as well as helping move the first person's genre along to a completely new level.
Call of Duty 4 IS the new revolution of gaming.
From the moment you first pop this game in you will be in for one wild roller coaster ride. The game is so in-depth, and so interesting it will keep you strapped to your seat for hours on end!! Between the diverse missions, different weapons, items, vehicles, and characters this story packs quite a punch!! The only criticism on this storyline is that its short.... very short. I beat it on one of the harder difficulties in less than three days.
For those who thought gears of war had the best, allow me to introduce the new king of next-gen graphics. EVERYTHING... and I mean everything is beautiful. The explosions, bullets, shock waves, grenades, characters, lighting, ground, sky, airplanes, and everything in between have never looked to so good on a console game until now. From silently stalking through the sniper mission to a high stake shootout in a tv broadcast building, this game will make you stop and admire what infinity ward has done for you. Bullets leave their mark and can now pass through walls and other obstacles. Rockets now leave realistic smoke trails and the sight of a helicopter spinning out of control is breath taking. You will find yourself so memorized by the graphics of the action and scenery that you might just have to re-start from the last checkpoint!!
The layout for the controls is the basic FPS layout... very easy to use and even customizable.
The most realistic bullets and explosions you will find next to being in a war yourself. This really feels/sounds like your at the shooting range firing off a few rounds. From the sound as you empty out your weapon, to bullets whizzing by you and taking out your comrades, this game is a master of the audio. If you plan on getting this game, GET A GOOD SURROUND SOUND SYSTEM. You will literally be blow away.
Where to start with this? The multiplayer in COD4 is one (if not THE) best in a game to date. You think halo did multi player right? Well they did, but think Halo x10... It far surpasses Halo as the new benchmark for online FPS gaming.
As you earn kills, head shots, grenade kills, and other aspects your rank goes up and you earn new weapons and abilities. This unlocks rank, weapons, weapon attachments, camo, challenges, and a ton of other stuff. This leads me to my next criteria...
Weapons System 9/10
The weapons system is amazing!!! Tons of different primary weapons, sidearms, and specialties. There is a huge array of weapons from a light machine gun to a .50cal Sniper rifle. Attachments are very customizable in multilayer, although I wish the would have more available. Overall, you will not be disappointed with the weapon
Never have I had this much fun with a game. Storyline is great (although short as mentioned above) but the multilayer will keep you going for a long time!!! Great fun, great re-playability, GREAT GAME!!!Read full review...
Very good game. Not the best Call of Duty. Item in perfect conditions.
This is a very good game. However, there are other better Call of Duty, like MW3, Modern Warfare 2 and Black Ops.
The item was in perfect conditions.
I had a great time.
cod4 great game!!
i love this game, i switched over from 360 to ps3 now i needed to get it back thanks for the great deal. cod4 was part of the great call of duty series in my opinion it was the first one they did an excellent job on that is until the second addition of modern warfare 2 was set out to the public then i was very impressed on the game play physics and graphics on the game it self the designers did a great job on it though their are always the flaws with the online play the online game play was still very competitive as usual their are people who are jerks online but their are good people too, those are the people users want to befriend with. me myself i dont play it for the competition i play it because i enjoy the game i give cod4 4* in every section.Read full review...
Best first person shooter ever
This is the best first person shooter ever made (so far.. until the sequel comes out). If you have an X-Box 360, PS3, or capable PC and you don't have this game yet, you should go ahead and pay for the overnight delivery. Have you been living in a cave or something?
Oh and uh... it's really violent. So uhh.. buy it for your kids to show them how dangerous and evil war can be. Let them play too, though - it's the only way they'll really understand, after all. Teach your children well... head-shots, no misses.Read full review...
Really Great COD Game!
From my point of view cod4 is the best of the series. It's balanced, but not too balanced like Black Ops. It has a catchy thing too that will make you like it. Sniping is paradise but now with all the mods it's hard to find a good game. Even if the game is spammed with all the mods it's fun overall. My only problem is GOTY does not include map packs any more, so i suggest to get the regular edition to save some money. Infinity Ward always pleases me with their games but Treyarch has Zombies which makes me buy their games.Read full review...
Short Campaign but Addicitive/Long-lasting Multiplayer
I was not a huge fan of the CoD franchise until I played Modern Warefare 2. I'm hooked. I've finished the campaign and started playing the multiplayer right away - however never had the opportunity to play Modern Warfare 1 - until now.
The campaign's story it not really creative, but it's a good story, very well written and scripted, providing the player with continuous action, and has memorable characters.
On both technical and artistic sides, the game impresses with excellent graphics, also, the audio is amazing, making you feel like you're in real warfare. The multiplayer is the best part of it, really addictive because of it's many game modes, maps, weapons and class customization in general. A must-play for any FPS fan.Read full review...
Knocking Halo of its pedestal
when Game informer gave call of duty 4 a ten I was a little cautious. after all they also recommended contra 4 which was a nightmare. however when I played through modern warfare, I was astounded by it's graphics, story, and fluid gameplay. shooting through walls is a cool idea, but while the environment is destructible, it isn't just a run of the mill battlefield. my personal favorite level was the level after the training mission. as I infiltrated a ship that was thought to have been transporting nuclear weapons, I was impressed by how the level would sway from side to side. after we found the nuke, an explosion was triggered in the ship, and we had to evacuate with the level swaying to 45 degree angles. the multiplayer is incredible. while I had fallen in love with halo three's forge mode, call of duty's multiplayer was even better despite how you couldn't customize your own maps. your team may have less than amazing AI such as standing in the way of a flash grenade, but this is the only flaw. a must have for any shooter fan and still a great game for casual gamers. deserves every bit of praise that you find online.Read full review...
