The year is 2011, and civil war has broken out in Russia between the Russian government and Russian ultranationalists under the command of Imran Zakhaev who seek to restore Russia back to its former Soviet-style leadership. A revolution has toppled a regime in an unnamed Arabic country which has ties to the Russian ultranationalists, with Khaled al-Asad coming to power. These two simultaneous events are causing fear that al-Asad and Zakhaev might form an alliance and use nuclear weapons against the West. In response to these concerns, the United States and the United Kingdom conduct joint operations to put down both uprisings, without putting their own nations' security at risk. Will they succeed?

Did You Know?


In the flash back mission Captain Price indicates that the mission is a decade (10 years) after the Chernobyl disaster, this would mean that the flash back mission occurred in 1996 as the Chernobyl disaster was in 1986. The flash back mission is said to be 15 years in the past, this would mean that the year the game is set is 2011. See more »


At the end of 'Safehouse' Captain Price draws his hand gun from his holster, turns and shoots Al-Asad, handgun in hand. However, his handgun also remains in his holster, meaning he is suddenly carrying two pistols. Also the sound of the gun he shoots him with is that of a Desert Eagle the same sound from when Al-Fulani is executed, but in the hands of Captain Price is a 1911 Colt. See more »

Aaaaaaaaaaaargh!!! The Next Generation is in the hizouse!!!
18 November 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

What an incredible piece of game-making.

By far, the best graphics yet seen on any platform.

Action, action, action. No more wandering around, going, "er...where do I go now?" Nothing but action. The bad guys crawl out from anywhere, like six-foot roaches with machine guns.

A level of realism previously unachieved in any field of entertainment.

The graphics look silky and photo-realistic. I refer not solely to the facial features and the movement and stances of the characters, but also to the incredible backgrounds that da Vinci would have been proud of.

You get the feeling you're in a war - not a computer game. You feel attached to the game, and lose concentration in the real world, to such an extent that you'll lose track of time, and maybe even be late for work/school/auditions/AA meetings.

Without doubt, this game is the one that will change everything. Halo? HALO? Nothing compared to this. Honestly, buy this game. You have no reason to dislike anything about it, apart from maybe the price.

This game has raised the bar so high, that I'm certain some developers who were a couple of months away from releasing their own FPS will have to delay their games' releases to have a major overhaul to catch up.

Call of Duty 4 is streets ahead of anything else out there. Get it. Play it. Love it. Live it.

Lots of love, Thomas Hardcastle
