I have all the COD games and love and own them all. This game is better than COD3 and similar to COD 2 with the Russian side of WWII as in COD2. It also has one enemy seldom seen in any game which is the Japanese. The Japanese where the most ruthless of all WWII. Hmm, I wonder why the Japanese ruthlessness is seldom exposed????? However, this is the only game, to my knowledge, that actually shows this side of the Japanese.
The most famous snipers in WWII were the Russians and this game has a great section where you are a Russian sniper in training. The Russian story line was great as was the Marines fighting the Japanese. Both sides where quite challenging. It seemed as though the enemy were very good with hand grenades as most of my deaths came from hand grenades.
The new weapons in this game generally come from the fact the they are Japanese which, again are seldom seen in any game. However, the T34, Russian, tank fight was the most challenging and fun tank battle I have ever experienced in a game. The American narration was from Keifer Sutherland in was great as I love 24 hours. This is a big budget and very well done game as you would expect from the COD fame.
However, this is very short solo game. All great games seem short but, I must admit this one is very short as I beat it in about 5 hours in solo mode.
With this version of COD you see the end of WWII which I hope means we might see more recent conflicts like maybe the Korean War, the Vietman War ,the Afghanistan War, or the Iraq War. I really believe COD 4 is the very best game of this series and game that I have played to date. I really enjoy the more modern weapons, the ones that have scopes and dot type sights as used in COD4.
This game is at least a rent and if you loved the other COD games a must have game.

I've owned this game for over a year now, and during that time I have become quite good at playing it. I recently rented Black Ops and stopped playing for a month while I tried it out. Upon my return I entered my first game and right away died by being knifed from under the map. I studied the kill cam and realized quickly it was a cheater using the godmode cheat. Since I was the host I quickly lagged the game and moved on to another match. In that match there were three godmodes, and each game afterward there was at least one of these cheaters.
The game is now infected with cheaters and there isn't any way to play a fair game.
I recommend you avoid this title until Xbox Live or the powers to be either ban these losers or remove this cheat. Otherwise you will quickly lose interests in this title.
