Call of Duty 4 – Single Player Impressions

1 min read

I was over at Megarom this morning for an Activision press conference and PR meeting which was quite cool. They showed us a bunch of games that I will post about in the next few days but for now I just have to give you my impression of Call of Duty 4.

Call of Duty 4 is most probably the best first person shooter to be released this year. Yeah the story in Bioshock *may* be better, or the multiplayer in Halo 3 *may* be better, but if someone said to me that they could only afford 1 FPS game I would recommend Call of Duty 4.

The single player campaign was beautifully rendered, the action was intense, the story pulled you in from the get go and it was just amazing.

For all of you playing the online Beta at the moment, the single player is 1000 times better looking and is truly engaging, for the guys who haven’t played the beta… the online multiplayer is awesome. Truly addictive.

It is well balanced and tactically intriguing… I just love this game πŸ™‚

You absolutely cannot miss this game.

//Oh I got a free COD4 gift as well which I will put up as a prize with whatever I steal from the Halo 3 launch… someone needs to let me know what type of comp I must run though?

I for one welcome our future robotic overlords

  • Cool man, I dig the multiplayer so I was hoping the single player would be as good. So what was the free gift eh?

  • LazySAGamer

    @Craig… it’s a secret… If I decide to keep it then it was a catalogue, else it was something nicer πŸ˜‰

    The single player is possibly better than the multiplayer as well…

  • PillsburyDeeBoy

    Mmm…the comp should be limited to the people who won in the AGASA league πŸ˜€ . I think that’s fair. To this day we…errm…I mean *they* have no prizes for their valiant efforts so this’d be a nice high 5 from you Lazy πŸ™‚ . That’ll also make your comp easy cuz you’ll only have like…6 contestants πŸ˜€ . See, Lazy, you give back and you have no admin πŸ˜‰ . What you say ol’ chap?

  • LazySAGamer

    I like the idea but the prize is just not worth enough for the SA champs.. seriously all the freebies are only little things…

    You have got the brain cells vibrating though

  • Ewie

    Open a comp with a quick (5 line review)
    impressions of a game recently bought
    / released, then you decide which one is the best.

  • LazySAGamer

    But then what if you guys figure out you can write better then me πŸ˜‰

  • Ewie

    Then you can pay us.

  • bokka1

    How about a prize for your oldest reader? πŸ˜‰

  • LazySAGamer

    That’s a cool idea but then everyone will claim nepatism when I give the prize to my Dad πŸ˜€

  • Ruslan

    Is it perhaps a small red flashlight? πŸ˜‰

  • LazySAGamer

    @Ruslan, so if you were there why not say hello πŸ˜‰

  • abe

    The Answer is Mushroom Pie!!!!

    Should I PM you with my postal address now?

  • Ruslan

    @Gavin – i wasnt there. My friends source was there but i got the flashlight. So go figure. πŸ˜‰

  • LazySAGamer

    Ah now I understand, well you are now disqualified :D… who needs two branded mini torches?

  • Ruslan

    rofl… what about having a backup one? πŸ˜‰
