Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare

You all must be willing to ask me about why in the god’s name I have written this 2 year old game review. My answer is simple- That’s because it’s one of the best games available on planet on PC version. This has a high replay value. I’m just crazy about this one. Don’t worry. I am planning to include the latest 3 reviews of the Call of Duty Series.

Let’s start with this one. First things first. If you’ve been living under a rock, and have no idea what I’m talking about, you need to know that Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare is a first-person shooter, developed by Infinity Ward and published by Activision. It is the fourth installment in the Call of Duty video game series, excluding expansion packs, and is followed by a direct sequel, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. While there is a much better hue and cries for the multiplayer version of this edition, I’d stick to only Single player version. The game breaks away from the World War II setting of previous games in the series and is instead set in modern times. God bless Infinity Wards for realizing WW II games are a bit worn off, with we having more pressing international matters at hand. In reality we can’t get these starred terrorists, at least we can shoot their brains out in a game. Good thinking, eh!

The story is set in fictional near future where a radical leader has staged an execution order against president of an unnamed country and another ultranationalist causing a civil war in Russia. The whole set is staged in Middle East. The mission is seen from the prospective of US Marine Corps and British SAS Commandoes.

You get loads of modern weaponry to shoot bad guys. The game’s move to modern warfare introduces new weapons and technology. Equip yourself with You-name-it-they-have-it collections of the M4A1 carbine,M40A3 Sniper Rifle Reg Scope the M203 grenade launcher, the AN/PEQ-2 Target Pointer for use in conjunction with night vision goggles, the MP5SD submachine gun, and the FGM-148 Javelin portable anti-tank guided missile. Weapons from fallen foes can be picked up to replace weapons in a player’s arsenal. Players also have additional abilities, including a grenade launcher attachment, claymores with tripwire-like detonation, C-4, night-vision goggles, and the ability to call in airstrikes and an attack helicopter.

Each stage is uniquely designed. Thus the gameplay differs each stage. You play the role of several characters which overlap. You get to know the character, and fall in love with them. No stage is alike. In the first stage you sneak and break your ways through a ship to retrieve a nuclear paper and then you run like hell when you realize the ship is about to blow. In another stage you shoot from an attack helicopter using 3 types of guns with the help of a night vision goggle, where your chances of error and omission are as high as Lindsey Lohan’s skirt. You have to run as it’s the end of the world when a helicopter tries to pierce you by its mini-gun. You feel like hell’s raining upon to you. You don’t think twice like James Bond and look for a cover. Run after your dreaded target and blow the onlooker’s face off on your way. The best of all is a sniper stage where you team up with stubborn, confident, skilled cigar smoking Captain Price and later be him. Now it’s time for a trip down memory lane. At a point your superior gets hurt and you have to carry him up and down to the rendezvous point and wait till your pick up arrives. You pass through jackheaded soldiers shooting fiercely at you, broken buildings, mad canines, near radioactive areas, jump the walls, duck the windows, place the claymore, and wait nearby an amusement park wheel picking up the deadbeats one by one with your dragunov till either you or your bullets or the ETA of your inbound helicopter, which takes ages to come, runs out. I found myself going back and playing these missions once the game was over just to experience a different challenge. Not to mention that blowing stuff up with a 105 mm cannon, while you circle the battlefield, is a whole lot of fun.

Let me come to the looks & talks. We all care for it. Who doesn’t! Especially I care for it for I’ve burnt a hole in my pocket to install the right hardware for this game. Well, it paid! Call of Duty 4 uses a propriety game engine that features dynamic lighting, depth of field, rag doll and environmental physics and just about every other whistle and bell you can think of. Everything is incredibly detailed; vehicles, weapons, uniforms, buildings, all of it is modeled so realistically that I found myself in the midst of several intense fire fights, either failing my objective or getting killed because I was looking in wonder at all the detail. Characters have the most realistically implemented motion capture I have ever seen in a game, period. Graphically, the game is the top of the heap. There is none better. Spic n Span environment and designs and voice makeover makes this one full rated value for my money. And you don’t need to sell a kidney and an eye for the hardware. Just a GB of RAM with a decent processor and a 8600GT graphics card should do the trick for you play it at fantastic looks.

Along the way, there are plenty of jaw-dropping moments where you’ll look around the room for someone to whom you can say, “I can’t believe that just happened.” In a world filled with war games in which the good guys come out unscathed and the world is left at total peace, Call of Duty 4 will wake you up like a face full of ice water. Unlike the XBOX counterpart, the PC version has attained an unimaginable respect and popularity. What’s not to like here? The worldwide average for this game is 9.4- An elite status. High-quality story mode packs in a lot of thrilling and unexpected moments. The single-player campaign is over in a flash, but the high quality of that campaign and its terrific multiplayer options make Call of Duty 4 a fantastic package. While many other games try for a Hollywood block-buster feel, Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare pulls it off like no one else ever has and does so in great fashion.

Verdict? Considering the single player mode, although short, my points goes for everything. Absolutely everything is perfect. Now don’t skip your heartbeat like me while I was playing it, for giving this great game a perfect score- 10/10.

End of my never-ending review. Time for a rest to my hands and brain. Now, where is my coffee?
