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?


Is the first "Call of Duty" game set in a time period other than World War II. As a result, it is also the only "Call of Duty" game not to feature any of the Axis nations as an enemy. See more »


In "Hunted", there are, at most, five men on the ground escaping; Captain Price, Gaz, Soap, Nikolai, and one other SAS soldier (normally Sergeant Arem). However, in "Death from Above", we see at least eight operatives on the ground escaping. See more »


Command: Primary exfil point has been compromised. Proceed to secondary extraction south of bridge. Enemy presence... substantial.
SSgt. Griggs: It's just TOO hot, man... but room temperature? Please. A beer should be ICE COLD.
Captain Price: A lager maybe. Or a glass of water like you drink. But a pint of stout?
SSgt. Griggs: I'm gonna have to school ya both when we get back stateside.
Gaz: Yeah, well, either way we're stopping by London first. And I'm buying.
SSgt. Griggs: At least the world didn't end. Hit it.

Close to gaming perfection
23 December 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Finally after much anticipation i finally got a copy of call of duty 4 and have now finished the game.

The main story is how a Russian ultranationalist party wants to bring Russia back to it's soviet days. The leader of the ultranationalists is Imran Zackaev and he uses a middle eastern terrorist, Kahled Al Asad to draw attention away from the russians.

Playable characters jump between several characters. You play S.A.S sergent Soap Mactavish, Sergent Paul Jackson of the U.S.M.C and also a very fun one off mission were you go flashback 15 years and play as captain price.

The graphics are incredibly detailed and every tiny detail is catered for.

The story was a fantastic idea considering how call of duty has jumped from world war 2 to the modern day.

Online is where the fun really lies. There are hundreds of different online games but my favourite is ground war which is basically your team deathmatch but with LOTS more players and it actually feels like a warzone with grenades,explosions and bullets happening all around you.

A very deep experience and certainly worth your money, definitely my game of the year.
