Not yer fathers COD
on September 5, 2013
The original COD was great. Things got a little squirrely in COD2 but it was still pretty good. COD4 is quite different - heh, not WW2 but it's about stuff that is happening today - kinda like Seal Team 6, that is you are part of a small group that goes out and does heroic stuff. Rescue this guy, assasinate this guy, settle thus problem. I played it once on the easiest seeting and then went back and turned it up a notch. I got about a third of the way through and then got into a problem I just couldn't get past, trying to protect a disabled tank. Being an old guy, 77, I expect to have slower reaction times so....
It's a pretty good game that would remind you of some of the stuff in the original - the ambient sounds, the chatter. THere's even a voice coaches you as you go along. It's a decent COD game just not a world shaker.
