I don't know where to begin. From the minute I popped in the DVD I already had adrenaline pumping in my veins. I couldn't possibly wait. Every gamer knows this feeling, when you have been waiting so freaking long to try out a game and once again you forget all you past toubles because in Call of Duty 4, the only troubles you will have will be decided on the battlefield. The bullets zip by around you, but your just sitting in your warm, soft sofa, carelessly enjoying the game. Oh Call of Duty, your back! As the game was installing, I remembered all of the beautiful missions I had played before in Call of Duty 3, 2, 1. Needless to say, I felt that the new "Modern War" concept would not be true to the COD label. Every gamer has his/her fears. But what was I really afraid from? What if the developers turned their faces in the wrong direction?
The game had an overall good story line, I couldn't ask for more. Graphics were amazing as usual. The first few missions were totally entrancing and my first impression was that the game was going to be another Bioshock. I was disappointed when I realized that the creators at Activision do not know the difference between English and Russian and that many signs in the Middle East were simply in English. Other than that, the game was "terribly" realistic.
All in all, the game felt true to its series, but it's not a lie that it could have been better. Worth the money and worth the time spent. The extra single player Arcade mode was nothing compared to what the single player had to offer. The single player left me wanting more, more of something which I did not sadly find online...
Go on and buy this game soldier and fight for what's right!
