So much more than war...
By shandog137
Posted on 04/18/14
The recent blog, Peace in the Era of Call of Duty  really made me think about war games that dig deeper than simply a kill streak reward. The first game that came to mind was Spec-Ops: The Line and although I haven’t played it, I began to wonder if it did the war genre as...

Call of Duty 4 Modern Warfare PC Single Player Only Review

(Dang that’s a MOUTHFUL!)

 

            Call of Duty has been the trademark of Infinity Ward since 2003. For those of us who know the Call of Duty series, Call of Duty has taken place in World War II with games like Call of Duty 1, 2, and 3, but due to Treyarch incompetence with first person shooter, it ended in the disaster of CoD fans like to call, disaster and it would seem that Call of Duty series to never be restored to its glory. But now Infinity Ward has brought us a brand new experience, a first person shooter taking place in modern times and with modern times comes with modern problems, it must come with Modern Warfare.    

 

            Call of Duty Modern Warfare title isn’t just for show, in fact the game does not take place in WWII anymore it takes place around these times. With modern times however, come modern problems like taxes, banging that hot chick that is confused about her sexuality, your sons and daughters, and Global Terrorism, hmmm I wonder what CoD4:MW is about? Anyways, you’ll be fighting against Al-Asad, a cruel leader of Middle Eastern Forces, and Zakhaev, a one arm Russian rebel and Nationalist. You will play as three main characters, U.S. Marine, Paul Jackson, S.A.S operative, "Soap" MacTavish, and a character I don’t want to spoil for you. The story takes place all over the world, but mostly in the Middle East and Russia. Call of Duty Four graphics make it feel so intense, it will make you sad, funny, happy, and angry all at the same time.  10/10 for story

Play this game, or Al Asad will kill you =D


 

            Call of Duty Four also features some of the best graphics this generation has had, and sure it’s no Crysis, but all the same it feels so real. The game will run on System Requirements: GeForce 6600 / Ati Radeon 9800Pro or better but the System Recommendations are GeForce 7800 / Ati Radeon X1800 or better. The game will run on DirectX9.c. Every single inch on this game looks realistic: explosions, people, gun fire, grass, fires, smokes, etc. The shadows and lighting fit so perfect in this game it’s hard to tell differences. Of course, although the graphics are spectacular, there are sometimes a few bad texture moments. 9.5/10 for graphics

Fantastic isn’t it, but still, sucks to be him!

 

            Of course, with every amazing game, there has to be flaws, and for CoD4:MW, that is sounds. The problem with sounds is that sometimes voices can seem a bit full suckage, weapon gunfire sounds are almost the same as Call of Duty 2’s, and some explosions seem muffled. However, walking, crouching and other movements react so darn fine, and death sounds and other miscellaneous sounds are very well. I can honestly compliment the music as it fits the mood so perfect, also the ending music will have your face grinning! Another part to mention is vehicle movement/sounds fit very much so into the game! 9/10 for sound/music.

Here we see the dangerous homo sapient, hiding from the helocopterous

 

                        In Call of Duty Four, It plays like an average FPS (first person shooter for those nubcakes out there). However, with the numbers 1-6, you can activate some very useful items, and although hard to reach, they will become a necessity in the single player campaign. The controls are the standard WASD format, with G throwing grenades, Q and E changing view from left to right, N to use night goggles, C and crtl to crouch or crawl, and R to reload, a standard for PC FPS veterans. All in all, the controls are great and little to none is wrong with it, unless you have small hands…

AND NOW, TIME FOR SOMETHING COMPLETELY DIFFERENT =D

“Wahhhh, I can’t reach the W button T-T”

 

(Of course, due to technical difficulties, I don’t have the multiplayer in CoD4, so sorry ‘-_-)    

            The replay value in this game is pretty good in my opinion. Plus with the multiple difficulties, you’ll be hooked(I know I was =D!). You can also collect 30 secret enemy intel to unlock cheat codes after you beat the game, so that you can finally do something you always wanted to do =D. Another bonus is, that after you beat the game, you unlock arcade mode, which allows scoring up points in the campaigns mode. The major problem with this however, is that the game itself is so short, that you’ll be quite sadden that it takes less than six hours to beat it. 9/10 for replayability.

 

BOOM HEADSHOT, I CAN DANCE ALL DAY!

            Stay frosty fellow Marines/readers your tortur- pleasures are almost over.

            Call of Duty Four: Modern Warfare, is game full off surprises and greatness that will have your jaw dropped. CoD4:MW features 30+ of weapons that will be crucial in every step of this game, they are all useful from the pistol to RPG-7. The enemy AI is smarter than the ones in CoD2 and 3, but in this game enemies and allies trying to decide if they are soldiers, or they are mentally disabled football players. The game itself is very complex but is linear, VERY linear. However, even though the games objectives are linear, how get there and how you do it is up to you. The gameplay mechanics with grenades are special, you acquire 4 kinds of grenades, frag, stun, smoke, and flashbang, additionally you can throw back frag grenades, and however with something as crucial as this, the indicator is much too small to tell where the grenade is. Truly what makes this game remarkable, like the other CoD games, is the gameplay mechanics! 9.5/10 for gameplay.

Call of Duty Four has the things that every FPS should STRIVE for.

 

            There is no doubt in my mind that Call Of Duty 4 is the best in its series and better than the World War II games which have been actually going on LONGER than the actually REAL WWII! CoD4:MW, is everything a FPS veteran wants plus more. The single player is fantastic, and no real gamer should miss out on it. For those of you who have a PS3, XBOX 360, PC, and hell, even a DS or MOBILE should pick up this game at all cost. There is truly no other words need to be said about how damn awesome this game is, I can think of plenty of words to describe this game: Fantastic, spectacular, amazing, superb, great, awesome, GODLIKE! Even with it’s flaws, Call of Duty Modern Warfare is still the third best shooter I’ve ever played in my life.

 

FINAL SCORE: GoHumpATreeHippy/10 for those people believes that this game is too darn realistic for its own good.

Real Final Score: A 9.2 out of 10 For Call of Duty 4 Modern Warfare(PC also available on the Playstation Three and the Xbox 360) Single Player Campaign(that’s still a mouthful >.>)
