The Good: Some of the best presentation ever seen in a game, amazing voice acting, graphics, and audio, superbly paced and extremely cinematic, out of this world multiplayer that will keep you hooked for hours
The Bad: Campaign is too short
When I saw the trailer at E3 last year I was blown away. I couldn’t believe that the old WWII CoD that we now of grew up so beautifully. CoD4 doesn’t wait time with plot, or story (it’s there and it’s great) it just throws you in the battle from mission one and it’s a roller coaster ride of nuclear explosion (YES full real-time nukes!!!) helicopter rides and stealth missions unlike no other. The game is so realistic yet lets you play the game like previous CoD games let you. What I loved so much as you had to work with your team mates or you’d die! That’s right! REAL A.I.! The friendly AI is almost smarter than you are. The game sports many weapons from MP5s to AK47s to even good old RPGs. The game is about an Arab terrorist using Russia’s nukes to hit the good old red, white, and blue.
The campaign could have been a good two to four hours long but the six hours you do play are fantastic and flawless…yes flawless. I never got a chance with the multiplayer but I know it’s the best part about this game. After you beat the campaign you can go into arcade mode and try to get the highest score you can and compare over worldwide leaderboards (Hurrah!) If you are sick of WWII and want something fresh. Pick up CoD4 because it’s the best war game ever made and you’ll keep wanting more.
