5.0 out of 5 stars Game of the year? Definitely!, 19 Nov 2007
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare - Game of the Year 2009 Edition (PS3) (Video Game)
I've been a massive fan of the Call of Duty series from the start and I must admit I was a little concerned when I heard that the forth game in the series was going to be turning away from it's usual World War 2 setting and going to be based in modern times. Luckily though this new formula works really well and it a lot of ways even makes the series better.

First of all the locations are different and a lot better than in the previous COD games with place like Russia and theUkraine being the main settings, as opposed to the usual Normandy opening that has been in the last few. One level is especially atmospheric and even creepy where you take to the streets of Chernobyl. Next, the weapons and equipment are state-of-the-art, so expect the best in modern military technology at your disposal. The enemy A.I. is also top-notch where they will take cover realistically and will still fire at you once they have been shot, with their injuries taking them down.

The action is as chaotic and non-stop as you'd expect from the series and at points can be particulaly difficult. But the gameplay is so good that you really won't mind trying the sections again to be able to progress further. The graphics are probably the best I've seen so far on the next-gen consoles (PS3 & Xbox 360) and the lighting effects and character models are so realistic, you'll think you're watching a military video whilst playing through it!

Multiplayer is also excellent with so many different game modes including Free-for-All, Team Deathmatch, Team Objective, Team Tactical, Search and Destroy, Headquarters, Domination, Sabotage, Team Hardcore, Old School, Oldcore and Ground War, all of which can be played either online or on split-screen.

My only disappointments are that there is no co-op on the main campaign as I think that this would have made the game's lifespan last a lot longer and also the difficulty can be a little too hard at times. Other than that, this game is next-to perfect and overall this is one of the best games available at the moment and definitely is much better than the first Call of Duty games and is without a doubt the best game of 2007 in my opinion. Highly recommended,
