Default Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare

So...a little late on the bus, I know. But I didn't see a topic for this game, so I had to create one.

BECAUSE IT IS F***ING GOOD.

Yeah, it has it's rough edges. Certain aspects aren't as well polished....I'll cover that in the spoiler section so I don't ruin it for those of you who haven't played it yet.

But if you haven't played it yet, and you have a 360, get it. Honestly, it's a buy. AT LEAST a rent.

The gameplay is tight, and although it seems like a straight up shooter it is actually pretty diverse as far as the list of tasks the game asks you to perform.

The solid control scheme from the past Call of Duty's is preserved but the gameplay is much better. The AI is better at attacking YOU (for a change) and the overall sense of being a part of a team is much, much stronger in this game.

Now...

*****SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER SECTION****************
************************************************** **







I was a little disappointed that certain details weren't touched up in a game that shines like a diamond in a category of video games (First Person Shooters) that has been so f'n saturated that, while playing Halo 3, you start to wonder when FPS's will take the next step to actually surprise gamers and mystify us all over again.

Like when you're in the perspective of the kidnapped President and you're in the back seat of the Mercedes, there is so much going on and there is so much to take in....but the gauges on the dashboard don't move.

But that's a little nit-picky....

***end of spoilers.

I might have to re-subscribe to Live for this one...

Do you reckon the X-Box 360 version is the best, or can you also recommend it for PC or PS3?

I can only vouch for the 360 version because it's the only one I've played. But I can imagine the single player campaign is solid on all 3 platforms so long as you have a strong computer. I would imagine by the 360 graphics (which are gorgeous, btw) it would take a really good PC.

For online play, Live is booming right now of course. I'm sure the PC scene is strong as well online.

I'm glad you brought that up though because it's real thick of me to not mention that it's available on those other platforms. I game exclusively with Micro-$haft

I can't rate this game highly enough! I've only played the 360 version though, and still yet to try the multi-player

I play the PC version and it's terrific I love the mission called "Death From Above", it's quite original ... the one in Ukraine is impressive too.
Can't play in multiplayer mode but Battlefield 2142 is already keeping me too busy for any other online game anyway.

The online part of the game is amazing on LIVE it's the best online game out there right now IMO you actually have to upgrade your online character as you play the game and get promoted.

As far as single player campaign, because I've heard it's so short, it wouldn't be a bad idea just to rent it at least.

Yeah that's good advice as long as you only want to play the single player campaign

Multiplayer on the other hand

I loved the death from above mission. Totally original.

Overall the game is pretty impressive. Not my favorite (im a Battlefield 2 fan), but overall a pretty good game.

This game is so good I didn't study for my last final just so I could play it longer. Single player is like being in a movie, while MP is just incredible.

Hahaha. It is a good game. I played with a friend splitscreen and I kept killing him with the Last Stand perk, so he learned to shoot me in the head.

I struggled to migrate from PC FPS with the mouse to controller FPS on the XB360 and PS3 - so I have recently tried this out, the FragFX:



Its ok - helped me get into Call of Duty 3 and few others.

The mouse part is a little small and light weight compared to a decent PC mouse, but at least it is a mouse.

Now that I have the hang of it, I am quite tempted to try out COD4.
