5.0 out of 5 stars Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare Best FPS Ever!, May 28, 2008
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare - Game of the Year Edition (Video Game)
Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare is truly amazing First Person Shooter.

Pros:
Modern Warfare has the most realistic graphics ever made for a game. It's very much like being inside a film. It is a visual feast. The sounds of wars are as real as if you are on the battlefield. The bad guys are smart and adjust as the situations change. The game has a great story with more than a few interesting characters. One of the most compelling aspects of the game is the accurate portrayal of the chaos of war. Confusion reigns as the enemy floods forward. What to do, where to go, when to stand and when to charge, are all choices that you make in the fluid situations of combat. The battles are long. The enemies just keep coming. Very, very cool.

If you are a first timer in the wonderful world FPS's start out on the Recruit level. If you are an experienced gamer you will find the upper levels more than challenging.

Multiplayer:
Modern Warfare's multiplayer is amazing. This is THE best shooting multiplayer experience to be had on line. Many features and new maps add to the addiction. But, if you are a FNG, playing online in multiplayer can be a bit difficult to get the hang of. Be prepared to suffer some humiliation until you get your skill levels up. Hang in there.

The Arcade Mode is an great additional (and mostly overlooked) feature. Here you play to rank yourself in the Modern Warfare universe across the planet. Allso, very cool.

HIGH replay value. A whole lot of bang (pun intended) for your buck.

Cons:
Not many. The game is fairly short. The Veteran level is insanely difficult. The cheats available to the PC are not available on the 360. That's it.

You will not be disappointed. Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare is great fun and an the most amazing gaming experience to date. Plus, it doesn't have the mindless violence of any of the Grand Theft Auto series.

PS: The low star reviews are by young spoilers. They like "their game" best and feel it their "duty" to "shoot down" any other game that the gaming community thinks more of than "theirs." C of D 4 didn't get to be the 2007 Game of the Year (beating Halo 3, Assassin's Creed, BioShock and a host of others) by being anything less that near gaming perfection. As a grey gamer (been playing shooters for decades), I can say without hesitation that C of D 4 ranks 1st in it's class and takes a backseat to none.
