    Best CoD Game So Far

    Posted

    Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare is definitely one of the best modern shooters of this era. What sets this game apart from the other games in the franchise and apart from the countless other FPS games out there? PRESENTATION. The presentation of CoD4 deserves a gold star. The transition from mission to mission is almost seamless, creating an exciting, well-understood, and well-formatted storyline. The weapon models are replicated very well. They sound and shoot just as they would in reality. In my opinion, the single-player campaign of CoD4 far outshines that of World at War and Modern Warfare 2 (I have not played the single-player campaign of Black Ops nor do I have the intention of buying that game because the presentation by Infinity Ward is much better than Treyarch's - no fanboy-ism intended). Whereas the missions in WaW were repetitive and those of MW2 were sometimes too arcade-like, the missions in CoD4 are more plausible and are more varied. The only problem is the multiplayer mode. There is no match-making nor are there any host migrations. This means that you could be playing with people from Europe, Asia, Africa, etc. causing you to lag significantly. And if you are randomly chosen as the host while having a not-so-fast internet speed (especially when you have to connect to other parts of the world), the match will not even start. Instead, it will conclude the match as a draw right from the beginning before it goes back to intermission and selecting a new map. It will continue to process you as the host until you leave that specific lobby. The reason why this error has not been fixed is because more attention is focused towards the multiplayer modes of WaW, MW2, and Black Ops. WaW picked up on this flaw and had their matches restart after finding the best host. MW2 picked up on this flaw even further by including a host migration so that matches would not have to be restarted from the beginning. Recommendation: Buy this game for the single-player campaign, but buy Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 for the online multiplayer mode.

    I like this game. This is far more better than mw2. The #1 reason its better is because there no campers. No nube toobers. Plus its realistic. You want to knofe a guy you have to get close to them. There is no perk that lets you knife from 20 feet away. I recomend this game instead of mw2.

    actually purchased after MW@ but loved MW2 so much that I had to have MW1. The game is more limited than MW2 but it is still a lot of fun, especially if you prefer campaigning over online or arcade style play.

    This game will never get old still people playing online lots of fun all around a great game i will always play. The story is great the maps are fun the multiplayer is great (if you can avoid a hacked lobby) i will continue to play this game as its very addicting. This is the game that paved the way for all the Call of Duty fanchise. Would say get it if your a fan of first person shooters.
