Near Perfect

I just finished the campaign in this game and I have to say that it was near perfect all around.

Story - 10
The Story was told outstandingly. Unlike some military games, whose story is confusing and doesn't even give the player a goal, this game has distinct elements that are easy to understand, while still not being too simple. There are a few chapters that actually are only for story, and include no traditional gameplay. For example, the prologue ends with a segment where you, as President "Al Fulani", are publically executed by Kahled Al Asad, setting him up as a major antagonist in the game.

Graphics - 10
The graphics were absolutely outstanding. From the blurry, delayed effect scene when the player is dazed, or the amazing, gigantic scenery seen in levels where the player flies over an entire city. There is one graphical effect in the game that actually had me clapping. When, in a military chopper, you witness an atomic explosion from the center of a city. A passenger next to you flies out into the chaos as the cloud expands. Ohhh... Ahhhh....

Music and Sound - 9
The music is generally well done and placed. It gives a good sense of drama to the levels, as well as the scenes. Voice acting is top notch all around, in English, Arabic, and Russian.

Gameplay - 9
The gameplay is pretty awesome. Frustrating at some rare points, but generally satisfying and delivers a good wow factor. Some small areas (like reload times, sudden inexplicable deaths by grenade) left me a bit annoyed, but overall the levels are well designed and the AI also seems very realistic.

Overall - 9.5

A pretty awesome game. :)

Call of Duty 4 is the best shooter I have played for ps3, the graphics and all around game play is excellent. The campaign and online is fun and keeps you on your feet. Online is amazing there is so many options. After you rank up you can start creating your own weapon sets. you can choose your own primary weapon and add to it for example you can put a scope or a silencer or a grenade launcher on it. Then you can choose your pistol/ sidearm and your special grenade type. After that you can choose your 3 perks which are bonuses. I didn't expect this much to come from a group of game makers who primarily are know for their ww2 games but this is amazing. I bought this game and if they make another I will buy it. It's just such a amazing and fun game.

I got this game never had played a first person shooter game like this before. It is a little old and it takes a long time to get good at it but is excellent for the price and you may develope a mild addiction like I did.
