I usually don't get around to reviewing a game but this was so frustrating I had to write. I played the original COD 1 and 2 and really liked them. This one makes me follow guys around and treats me like a child. "Crouch" it says. "Throw a grenade now" it says. "Good job, you are awesome!" it says in one of several European accents.

But the real problem was half way through, which is as far as I got. On Mission 11 of 18, I'm behind some Scottish sniper telling me to follow him exactly... NOW! He takes off running and I follow him but we "get spotted." We get restarted over and over. I should mention that I'm damn good at games!

I check a walk through, even a video one, and it doesn't seem I'm doing anything differently than the video. I try about 10 more times and uninstall the game.

The game looks really good and has great motion capture (player animation). But it's all ruined by being treated like a child by the game and, what must be, a broken script in the middle mission.

CoD4 is a fantastic game which has the only downside of being too addictive. It continues to be superior to successor, CoD Modern Warfare 2, which was horrible, as well as to Bad Company 2 and Medal of Honor: Tier I. It is also superior to CoD: World at War. It is essentially the most fun FPS of 2010 even though it was released a few years ago. While ARMA II is vastly more realistic and is essentially a MilSim, CoD4 offers what I call fun realism.

The downside is that players have to download patches from third party sites and there is no instructions on how to install them. I am forced to play on the pre-patch 1.1 version as I have no idea on how to install the various patches I have downloaded. Activision needs to learn from Blizzard.

Played for a few months, upgraded my pc and cannot play the game anymore.
Not very friendly to require the disk be inserted and in the same drive it was installed from. Drives changed on re-install of windows. Now I have a pile of poo instead of a playable game. I would not buy this game again giving the choice of DRM used.

As much as I liked the original Call of Duty, it was much easier to install and play. I play single player exclusively and this things got me so upset by having to set up accounts on line I just put it aside. Have not played it to date. Bummer......

This game is fine if you can live without cheat codes. The makers went through extraordinary trouble to make sure it was extremely difficult to use cheats. When you hit an impasse in the game, it is nice to be able to cheat to play through, but not on this game.

Also, the grenades are a constant pain in the neck. You die if you don't "throw back" the grenade when the grenade symbol comes up on the screen. The problem is that it doesn't always throw away and you die. It is so frustrating!

On the positive side, the game has outstanding graphics and game play. It is a little too tense for me as many of the sequences have time limits you have to meet or you lose and have to start the sequence over again.

The grenade problem happens over and over and just kills the fun. I cannot believe this got past the makers. I am playing on the easiest mode and still getting hammered.

I will not be buying any new sequences to this game.

If you want to play a good, absorbing, challenging FPS (or FPS-related) game, choose a Grand Theft Auto game. The best of these is San AndreasGrand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Second Edition, but IV, Vice City, and III are nearly as good. Call of Duty 4 is not a good game.
The best points about the game are the graphics (good) and the sound (pretty good); however, the only so-so--I quit about 2/3 of the way through--Half-Life 2Half Life 2 has better graphics and sound. Another good point is that the game is short. (Mind you, you'll feel ripped off if you don't buy the game used for US$1.75, as I did.)
The bad points are that the game is (a) completely uninvolving, (b) has "characters" that develop in no ways, (c) chutes the player directly to where he/she is supposed to be, (d) consists entirely of levels in which you have to shoot a lot of people, (e) has an annoying automatic save and restart system with save points so close in time that there is no challenge, and (f) has no story whatsoever.
In "Call of Duty 4," you point and shoot some, then you're finished. Boring.
