Call of Duty 4 is a shooter that revolutionized the genre with its realism and unique online Multiplayer mode that has been mimicked by many . Every aspect of the game is well done to perfection from the single player mode to the online Multiplayer mode. This is a must have for any first person shooter fan looking for an awesome game. The game has one of the best story lines that I’ve played in recent time, you play as both Marines and the British SRS as you try to stop some terrorist from causing harm to the U.S .
While there is a significant amount of mission that showcase different aspects of combat my favorite mission was the sniper mission were you move behind enemy lines and you have to take out the terrorist leader with a 50 caliber sniper. I was just impressed by how realistic everything was from the characters to the environments, basically everything in the game is as perfect as it can get for right now. The single player game delivers everything with various weapons and environments, the game goes by real quickly, like most shooters it will only take you about 8 hours on the normal settings. But when you play it in hard mode the game changes drastically were every encounter becomes an intense battle were strategy comes into play. For many people who’ve played any shooter game will find it both challenging and gratifying and fun.
The online Multiplayer mode is just as fun because you can customize your characters with different attributes and different attachment for the weapon you have chosen. While you will start with the basic of that class weapon you can obtain new ones by completing the accomplishments set for that weapon for example you might have to kill 100 people with the sniper rifle of course every weapon will have different accomplishments to complete. You can also customize your character to have different traits to support the weapon you choose for example if you choose a sniper rifle you can have better lung capacity to give you a steadier aim or run longer.
Call of Duty Franchise has moved from the same old WWII games and gave us something new that is worth playing. The game has a lot to offer with it’s Online Multiplayer that will pin your skills against other players worldwide to the single player campaign. The game delivers everything from great controls, environments, weapons and just a great game worth owning and having in your game collection.
