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?

Top-Notch First -Person Action
14 January 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I was never a fan of the previous games in the Call of Duty series but I must say that Infinity Ward has created a wonderful game.

The first 3 missions give you great idea of what is to come. Call of Duty 4 has a perfect mixture of stealth, sniping and all guns blazing warfare. This game is the first I've played where I truly feel as if I'm in a war zone. You either play as a British SAS agent or a US Marine and you have to contend with the enemy's bullets, grenades, exploding cars and tanks. In Call of Duty you have no control over your squad but you really feel immersed in the action as it unfolds.

The graphics and sound in the game are superb. The environments and soldiers both look realistic and the lighting casts shadows and sun glare beautifully. The soundtrack provides music which fits the mood of the game perfectly and you can hear explosions in the distance as well as the 'tinging' noise of ricocheting bullets.

Online play is fantastic. There is a great variety of modes ranging from your standard death-matches to some excellent objective-based team games. Rarely, do you encounter a poor game. The only problem with the online system is the poor lobby which doesn't give you the option to choose specific games to suit your needs. However, the game has a top-notch ranking systems which rewards you for good play by giving you extra weapons and perks as well as game modes.

The single player game is a little short but I have not come across one as good as Call of Duty 4. If your a fan of First-Person Shooters you will love this game. If not, you may still be converted to the genre because of the quality of this title.
