Call Of Duty 4 - Xbox 360 (Released 2007)

OK, I picked up the game a day early, because I had such a blast with the Call of Duty 4 beta on the Xbox 360, I couldn't control my hand reaching into my wallet and pulling out my MasterCard to pay for it. And what I found when I started up the game exceeded my expectations for a next-gen game that sports big gun battles and one of the coolest prologues I have ever seen.

First off, some details about the game. You play as multiple characters (as in all Call of Duty games) with their roles revolving around the same story setting. The game takes place (as its title implies) in a modern setting, with a somewhat typical plot; a Russian nationalist wants to restore his homeland to the Soviet Union by using nuclear weapons, and of course, your job is to stop him.

The game starts with a simple training obstacle course designed to help you get familiar with the controls, in which you move onto a speed-trial course that as you move faster in the course, the game suggests a difficulty setting for you.

The battles you encounter range from sieging small rooms with flash bangs and shotguns, to full on rifle engagements in alley-ways, to picking off the baddies with a sniper rifle in the even bigger gun fights. The game is fast and on the harder difficulties (I'm playing the game on its hardest: Veteran) it is downright brutal. In all honesty, you can even find yourself confused when in such big battles, I find myself wondering "WHERE THE **** AM I GETTING SHOT AT FROM?" then finding myself aiming at the wrong people. The action is frantic and if you plan on playing the harder difficulties, be prepared to die a lot from grenades and well-hidden enemies.

The game runs at a super-smooth 60 frames per second, making it feel so fluid, that going back to play Halo 3 or Gears of War almost feels like your playing those games in slow motion. The controls are nice and responsive, and feel like most first-person shooting games should feel. Natural + Smooth.

Lastly, the multiplayer: WHOA IS IT FUN! As you play online, you gain a rank. Not a skill level-based rank, but a real military-style rank such as private, staff seargent, etc., all the way to general. You gain rank by gaining experience points in the game. Now that ranges from killing someone, winning a match, to winning some objective; now you get rewarded to gaining your ranks, and that includes new weapons and additions to your weapons such as such as: Scopes, Silencers, Camo, etc. You also unlock what are called perks, which are subtle abilities you character may have, including shooting through walls, having higher than avg. health, doing higher than avg. damage, or being undetectable by radar. In addition, you can create your own class of soldier using a variety of weapons and perks.

Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare makes for one helluva next-gen experience since Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter. It adds fast, fun gameplay and is immersive, but not too realistic. Its single player and multiplayer experiences are top notch, which seem to be lacking in some games of today. Nevertheless, anyone who likes shooting games will love the new addition to the Call of Duty franchise.

Score: 9.5/10

I liked how he took the images, and place them in the different sections, and further explaining it, makes it look more feasible and enjoyable to read.

What do you guys think?

I didn't think it was out yet.
Are there any new multiplayer modes?
Or Is it just the usual?

oooo I come home and look what I find lol. Well as for multiplayer there are a ton of modes that are similar to Halo's matchmaking system. There are objective based games such as CTF and Search/Destroy. But to name ALL the modes would be kinda boring.

The content is fine. I think the format should stay the same as before....boxart and screenshots below the review score - but I am definitely in favour of comments under each screenshot explaining whats going on.

Nice review, I might get it for PC just to play online. But first I should played the other 3, never played any.

I agree, i find that if im reading about a certain part in the game, or a certain weapon or move, or part of gameplay or world, and then i see a picture, i understand more, and feel i know more about the game, for if its at the end, even if its explained, i wont remember for all the information about the game i have read, and the beginning with the game cover, shows what the game looks like, i think its a great sort of free format

Well, Nintengod, this review was really a rough draft that I sent as a PM to Shooting Palanx. If you guys really want me to change it up a bit, I got no beef with that.


Nice review, I might get it for PC just to play online. But first I should played the other 3, never played any.

I never really played any Call of Duty game until the beta for COD4 was on the Xbox 360. Since then I've been hooked like a dirty sock to a dog.

Just edited the thread title to "Xbox 360".

As a rule....we aim to review one version of a specific game. Now it is entirely open for someone to do a review of the PS3 or PC version. Also, if you - Koill, happen to have tried the other systems ports, we would welcome within this review a contrast of them.

Many readers will own possibly 2 of these machines, perhaps even 3, so any help for them in choosing which port to go for would be greatly appreciated.

Awsome game has all features you would want from a FPS and the online play is great i just wish you could make and save your games online like halo. But aside from that this is one of the best games out now.

I hope that the patch comes out soon, I would also like to see some good DLC, with new maps and gametypes.

Yes, you may be suprised when you find out its exactly the same!!! The DS version may be worth reviewing though.

Well I don't know about the graphics being much better - in the single player campaign, yes by far - but online Halo 3's visuals and gameplay overall is far less glitchy.

Yeah, this is a great game. The stories fun to play once or twice but the true fun comes from the multiplayer. If you don't have internet enabled on your console it would, in my opinion, be a waste of money, since half a year on, it's not too far from it's original price (in the UK anyway), I don't know about the DS version though.

Prestige is going from level 1-55 all over again. The badges look better as you go along and then stop at 10th.

That's right (i never played the game) but i still agree with the Smurf Lord, he never says anthing that's wrong :)

dude i swear you say you'll stay at the first lvl 55
i know i did
you get there you kill everyone
maybe you earn all the golden guns
but trust me on this one
you will prestige again
you always feel like taking your n00b owning skills back to the start
when you kill some n00b with a n00b tube, probably the best feeling ever
especially when you make fun of his mom in the lobby after
