FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

What do these ratings mean?

Ring-ring.  *picks up phone*  Hello? Oh, he’s right here. *offers you phone*  He says his name is Duty.  The call is for you.

And of course you’re going to answer this call because you like your games big, your battles huge, your enemies Nazi.  You don’t go in for all this ray-gun jazz or fantasy dinosaur world, you want to cream the Germans over and over again in over-the-top ways.  You liked Saving Private Ryan, but you hated the guy who turned coward in the final scene.  You'd beat up that coward, if you could.

But what’s this, Call of Duty 4 isn’t about the Nazi’s or WWII?  It won’t matter because the game still feels like the giant battlefield shooter.  Razor-sharp graphics and intense smoke and light effects make this the most cinematic shooter on our roster.  It’s big, it’s beautiful, and it’s violent.  Kind of like a gorgeous sunset behind a mushroom cloud.
