Start to finish, online or off, Call of Duty 4 is solid gold. Some might decry the single-player's short length or that the Arcade mode (which lets you compete for points and skill ranking after you've beaten the game, a la Halo's Metagame) more than make up for it. Infinity Ward has delivered on every front and there is no question in my mind that this is the best action shooter that I have ever played.

A campanha tem uma condução de enredo impecável, com algumas das mais ricas e impactantes cenas vistas num videogame, com a sensação de estar participando de um filme de guerra. O único senão é sua pouca duração, mas, enquanto estiver no front, é provável que seja algumas das horas mais emocionantes na frente de um game. Por outro lado, tem um dos multiplayer mais empolgantes dos últimos tempos, combinando robustez e um sistema de experiência que o torna irresistível. É daqueles jogos que instiga a liberar todos os conteúdos. Mesmo quem não gosta de jogos de tiro em primeira pessoa, deveria dar uma chance para "Call of Duty 4". Assim, quem sabe não mude de idéia e passe a incluir em sua preferência o gênero que oferece alguns dos principais candidatos a título do ano. Essa é uma guerra que definitivamente vale a pena lutar.

Adrenaline Vault, The (AVault)
Combining a single player experience I feel the need to replay and a multiplayer experience that has me convincing my friends to pick up copies, Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare is the kind of first person shooter that regulars of the genre should choose over all the others we’ve seen come out in the past six months. Given the quality of releases such as Crysis, Time Shift and Quake Wars, that’s saying a lot. Right now, this game is the cream of the crop, and I can’t imagine a better title upon which to bestow the Adrenaline Vault’s Seal of Excellence.

Infinity Ward's latest is hands-down one of the best shooters of 2007, both in terms of its single-player adventure and multiplayer mayhem.

It’s very difficult to find fault in this masterpiece. It may be short, and it may not offer split-screen online support, but I consider this to be the most polished first-person shooter I’ve ever played. Yes, it’s better than Halo 3. Yes, it’s better than the Half-Life games. It really is that good. The bar has just been raised.

Game Over Online
Seldom do games combine top notch single player and multiplayer experiences, but truly Call of Duty 4 has done just that. The single player campaign, while relatively brief and lacking much in the way of replayability due to its extreme reliance on its scripted events, is excellently crafted in terms of both narrative and gameplay. There are a few niggling little flaws to gripe about, but they’re certainly worth enduring for all the substantial goodness. The real main event is the multiplayer though, a holiday gift that keeps on giving. Franchises come and franchises go, but between all the weapons, modes, maps, and countless customization possibilities this is one shooter that people will be playing online for a long time to come.

Gameguru Mania
Overall, from single player to multiplayer, there isn't a single part of the game I don't enjoy. There's enough variety that you never feel like you're 'grinding' in multiplayer to get XP or awards, and various single player missions are worth replaying in order to try something new or beat an old score. Call of Duty 4 is a must buy!!!

GamingExcellence
Call of Duty 4 is an excellent game, there’s really no doubt about it. Top-notch presentation combined with tight gameplay and impressive graphics make it fun to play on the single-player, but it’s in the multiplayer aspect of the game that the experience is the best. As far as first-person shooters go, this is one of the best on the market, and is something anyone that’s sure to interest anyone who has dabbled in the genre.

Cheat Code Central
Overall, Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare is an intense gaming experience from start to finish. The story is conveyed much better than the average FPS, the gameplay is varied enough to stay fresh, the graphics and sound both deliver, and the multiplayer is addictive. If Call of Duty 4 can attract enough fanboys away from Halo 3 to experience it, we may have a new contender for FPS of the year. Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare proves that you don't have to have Spartan superwarriors, wrenches, portals, or sci-fi to create a great shooter game.

Worth Playing
Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare extracts the best elements of the best multiplayer titles, improves upon them and combines them successfully in a compelling package that has something for everyone. I hesitate to call CoD4 "primarily" single-player or multiplayer because both modes are so good. It's a title you can really sink your teeth into and prepare for the long haul; you could be playing this for years. With the possible exception of Crysis, CoD4 is the best-looking online shooter ever made, and fans of online shooters will absolutely adore this release. You owe it to yourself to pick up a copy.

Game Freaks 365
Overall, Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare joins the ranks of Halo 3, BioShock, The Orange Box, Super Mario Galaxy, Mass Effect, Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, and Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction as one of the best games of the year, one of the games in a group of titles that truly separate themselves from the competition and have proven that they are worthy of purchase by anyone with even the slightest trace of interest or connection to the subject matter.

The Games Machine (Italy)
Lo ammetto: i dubbi sul cambio di ambientazione sono durati lo spazio di due caricatori: non appena inserito il terzo, appare chiaro come Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare si proponga come uno dei migliori FPS del 2007. A un gameplay brutale e intenso nel ricreare le meccaniche del combattimento moderno, si affiancano uno scripting eccezionale e una grafica di altissimo livello per qualità visiva, animazioni fluide e una fisica finalmente all’altezza della situazione. Difetti? La mancanza di sezioni più ragionate e un certo autocompiacimento dei programmatori nel riproporci in versioni extralusso cliché del genere (fosse sempre così... ): la brevità della campagna singleplayer è invece ampiamente bilanciata da un multiplayer longevo e appassionante. La community di Call od Duty 2 è già in volo verso nuovi campi di battaglia...

Call of Duty 4 Modern Warfare rescribe la saga, y tenía que ser Infinity Ward los que le diesen la vuelta de tuerca que le hacía falta. Las novedades intrínsecas al momento histórico, con sus nuevos gadgets y armas le dan otro aire y otra dimensión a la jugabilidad, aunque no deja de ser un shooter con toques estratégicos.

Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare is the complete package. It is an extremely high quality game built on a quick but action packed and addictive singleplayer experience, finished off with a multiplayer experience that rivals the best when it comes to sheer fun and enjoyment, all wrapped up in an engine that delivers with an overriding sense of 'cutting edge' throughout the entire experience. If this game is any indication, the days of 'built for console' shooters stinking up the PC platform are well and truly over because while it does seem reasonably evident that console friendly designs were implemented at times, there is no doubting that COD 4 will be thoroughly considered by the gaming industry pundits come PC GOTY 2007 time - I know it will be for me, that's for sure. I just don't know if I've ever played a shooter so well made with such brilliant execution in almost every regard - this is simply a must have for any PC action/shooter fans.

VGcore
Infinity Ward really did an amazing job with Call of Duty 4, especially considering that they took the game in a different direction. The weapon system is amazing, the singleplayer very fun and the story is told well, and the online multiplayer is among the best out there. If you’re looking for a new shooter to play this Christmas, definitely pick up Call of Duty 4, you won’t be disappointed!

The shooter market is crowded with a lot of blockbusters and top-tier releases, but Call of Duty 4 easily stands out as one of the best. The core shooting feels and looks fantastic, the single-player, while short, is a gripping and jaw-dropping experience, and the multi-player is so well done that it feels like you're buying two games for the price of one. Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare represents Infinity Ward's best work to date and it represents everything a shooter should be and more.

Armchair Empire, The
All in all, Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare was one of the best FPS games that I’ve played in the last 5 years and hope that the designers can be enticed into additional single player campaigns or a quick release of the next game if not.

The best shooter in the Call of Duty series, and arguably one of the best ever.

The long-awaited COD4, IW's follow-up to the excellent Call of Duty 2, is a jarring, intense, and gripping take on war in the new millennia. The enemies are smarter, the weapons are deadlier, and the grenades all too plentiful. COD4 will shake loose your fillings and have you begging for more.

Call of Duty 4 - Modern Warfare glänzt weder durch ein großes Waffenarsenal, noch durch großartige Innovationen. Das Team von Infinity Ward macht einfach nur verdammt viel richtig und befolgt die Grundlagen für einen packenden Shooter. Die beeindruckende Präsentation schmiegt sich perfekt ins actionreiche Gameplay und passt wunderbar zur akustischen Höchstleistung.

Total PC Gaming
If this were garbage it could be ignored in favour of Crysis, BioShock, Half-Life 2 Orange Box and the rest, but it’s such an addictive, adrenaline-pumping ride that finding space for it is compulsory. COD4 oozes quality from every pore, its single-player campaign offering one of the most intense, heartpounding experiences around while the multiplayer, which we’ll review next issue, promises to be an enduring favourite. No matter how weary you may be of Call Of Duty or first-person shooters in general, this really shouldn’t be missed.

YouGamers
Call of Duty 4 has the best of both worlds: a tight, fast-paced single player campaign that never feels like a chore, and a fleshed-out multiplayer game with dozens or hundreds of hours of gameplay in it. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend COD4 to any first-person shooter fan, aged 17 or older; there's no question that some of the single player campaign scenes warrant the M rating (ESRB).
93
GamersWanted
Overall Call of Duty 4 is by far the best FPS I have ever played. From the extraordinary sound and visuals to the heart-pounding action CoD4 envelopes the player in the world of extreme modern combat. With only three drawbacks to speak of (short campaign, no co-operative campaign, and friendly fire) Call of Duty 4 deserves to be in the running for Overall Game of the Year. While the realistic represented blood and gore should deter parents from purchasing the title for those too sensitive for such horrors as warfare I am fairly confident that gamers in their teens or older will all enjoy CoD4 as much as I do.

ActionTrip
The amount of excitement COD4 has generated is completely justified. Infinity Ward has proven once again what happens when a developer takes their time, does the research and puts in the effort to do things correctly with a game. While many other games try for a Hollywood block-buster feel, Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare pulls it off like no one else ever has and does so in great fashion. The comprehensive multiplayer features are going to ensure that COD4 will remain on players' hard drives long after the single-player story has been completed. And to have such great graphics, sound and gameplay on both the single-player and multiplayer sides, gamers everywhere are going to count themselves lucky. Now, if there was some way for gamers to exude such a pleasing aroma as me, LAN parties everywhere would be much more enjoyable.

Als ich Call of Duty 4 nach knapp sieben Stunden durchhatte, da ist mir aufgefallen, dass ich vielleicht mal Luft holen könnte. Das Spiel lässt einen diesen automatisierten Körpervorgang nämlich vergessen, und um das zu schaffen, muss es schon verdammt gut sein. Ist es. Ich kenne keinen Shooter, der im wahrsten Sinne des Wortes atemberaubende Szene an Szene reiht, ohne auch nur einmal zu schwächeln. Wo man kritisieren könnte, müsste man aufs verminte Territo­rium der Ethik treten. Denn einiges in Call of Duty 4 glorifiziert die Auslöschung Lebens, und es gibt weit und breit keinen Gegenpol, der die Tragweite von Handlungen ins Bewusstsein rückt. Möglich wäre derlei gewesen, hätte man Charaktere und Story sorgfältiger bearbeitet. Doch wie man Figuren mit Sinn für Sensibilität zeichnet und Dialoge jenseits typischer Marine-Sprüche schreibt, müssen die Entwickler offenbar noch lernen. Den Rest beherrschen sie.

Gameswelt
Ich hasse 08/15-Fortsetzungen und lasst euch gesagt sein: ’Call of Duty 4’ ist weit von einer solchen entfernt. Die dramaturgisch gesehen extrem starke und stellenweise auch mutige Inszenierung von Krieg und Tod setzt neue Maßstäbe im Bereich der Videospiel-“Unterhaltung“. So manche Szene beeindruckt weniger im “spaßigen“, als mehr im “mit offenen Mund vor dem Fernseher sitzen“-Sinne. Das nach gut sechs Stunden das Spektakel schon vorbei ist, ist der wirklich einzige, echte Nachteil eines der grandiosesten Ego-Shooter Spiele aller Zeiten. Das umfangreiche Rang- und Erfahrungspunkte-System im Multiplayer-Modus sorgt für den entsprechenden Ausgleich beim Umfang und zementiert den Anspruch auf eine potenziellen ’Game of the Year’-Nominierung. Ich bin mehr als gespannt, wie sich im Vergleich hierzu das rein für den PC erscheinende und non-linear konzipierte ’Crysis’ schlagen wird.

Ich könnte jetzt die üblichen Floskeln benutzen: Action-Feuerwerk, Meilenstein, Meisterwerk! Aber ehrlich, das überlasse ich anderen. Meine Kaufempfehlung formuliere ich anders: Ja, Call of Duty 4 ist in der Kampagne nur etwa sechs Stunden lang. Aber erstens werden das einige der besten sechs Stunden sein, die ihr jemals mit einem Shooter verbracht habt! Und zweitens erwartet euch danach ein Multiplayermodus, der mit seinen abwechslungsreichen Spielvarianten und dem herrlich motivierenden Belohnungssystem jeden anderen Shooter in den verschämten Schatten stellt. Zugegebenermaßen fehlt die taktische Komponente, die Rainbow Six: Vegas so brillant macht. Aber alleine der Klassen-Kniff, der nach und nach immer bessere Ausrüstung freischaltet, ist genial umgesetzt und dürfte CoD 4 zu einem der langlebigsten Shooter machen! Wenn ihr nicht schon zugegriffen habt: Kauft euch dieses Action-Feuerwerk, diesen Meilenstein, dieses Meisterwerk - ach Mist, ich konnte doch nicht widerstehen.

Endlich haben die Call of Duty-Entwickler die auch von uns vorgetragene Kritik an den Vorgängern aufgrund des ausgelutschten WKII-Settings zur Kenntnis genommen und sich für den vierten Serienteil eine bedrückend realistische Bedrohung einfallen lassen, nämlich den Terrorismus. Damit einhergehend erzählt Call of Duty 4 auch erstmals eine richtige Geschichte und lässt euch allein deshalb tief in die Atmosphäre eintauchen. Der Rest ist im Grunde wie erwartet einfach nur genial. Der Solomodus brennt für euch über acht Stunden ein Feuerwerk der Action und herausragender Shooterkost ab, wobei alles perfekt inszeniert ist und technisch ohne Frage zum Besten gehört, was das Spielejahr 2007 zu bieten hat. Obendrauf gibt es noch den unglaublich motivierenden und flott spielbaren Mehrspielermodus, so dass Call of Duty 4 als Gesamtpaket einfach ungeschlagen ist und in jedem Shooterhaushalt seinen Platz finden sollte.

Selbst beim Schreiben dieses Reviews zittern noch immer die Hände und laufen mir ein paar Schweißperlen von der Stirn, denn selten habe ich einen so intensiven Shooter wie Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare erlebt. Im Sekundentakt musste ich mit neuen Situationen zu Recht kommen und die fabelhaften Skriptevente haben stets für einen sehr hohen Pulsschlag gesorgt. Kritikpunkte bzw. verbesserungswürdige Aspekte findet man im neuen Infinity Ward-Meisterwerk nur mit der Lupe, welche man ordentlich sauber machen sollte ;).

Het is jammer dat de singleplayercampagne zo kort is; de enige reden dat je Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare mag overslaan, is als je niet van plan bent om de multiplayercomponent uit te proberen. De kwaliteit van de singleplayermode is desondanks geweldig en de multiplayermode hoort bij de beste van het moment.

Tatsächlich hegte ich ja Zweifel, ob mir Call of Duty 4 gefallen würde. Der zweite Teil hatte bei mir einen schalen Nachgeschmack hinterlassen. Ich wollte diese virtuelle Schießbude nicht mit dem Zweiten Weltkrieg in Verbindung bringen. Aber ich wurde so was von eines Besseren belehrt! Es beginnt ja schon damit, dass Call of Duty 4 eine Geschichte erzählt. Dann geht's weiter mit den Gegnern, die eben nicht nur doof auf mich zupreschen. Und dann diese fulminante Inszenierung rund um mich und meine Kameraden. Die wird nicht langweilig. Nicht mal nach dem dritten Durchspielen. Was soll ich noch sagen? Die Pflicht ruft!

Call of Duty 4 macht (fast) alles richtig. Nur die Spielzeit hätte ruhig noch zwei bis drei Stunden länger sein können. Ansonsten ist CoD4 neben Crysis der Shooter, an dem Genrefans dieses Jahr nicht vorbeikommen. Ein Must Have! Und dafür gibt's verdientermaßen den Gamecaptainorden am goldenen Bande.

Modern Warfare est à mes yeux l’aboutissement du talent et du savoir faire d’Infinity Ward. Ils ont poussé au maximum ce dans quoi ils ont toujours été excellents à faire et le résultat se rapproche de la perfection. Campagne solo à couper le souffle, l’un des meilleurs modes multijoueurs existants, il faut absolument vivre l’expérience Call of Duty 4. Certes, il serait facile de dire qu’un changement d’époque est bien peu, mais si on le compare à l’immobilisme de certaines franchises, nous ne pouvons que lever notre chapeau.

A very fine example of the genre, Call of Duty 4 is setting new benchmarks for multiplayer action, and will likely be being played for many months, even years, to come. It narrowly misses out on a 10 for not being more original, but it's still a near-perfect FPS worthy of a very high 9.

Thunderbolt Games
Still, though, Call of Duty 4 is a resounding success. By bringing a solemn, contemplative experience to PCs, it is just another example of how video games are moving forward. The intense and difficult experience should be played by anyone who enjoys a good story. Even with an anemic singleplayer offering, the full game is worth a purchase for the multiplayer experience. If you're tired of glossed-over, one-sided, boorish war games, then the new Call of Duty is most definitely worth your time.

If Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare had a longer single player campaign our score would have been even higher. As it stands Infinity Ward's latest game still is worth the money to buy and experience for yourself. You will enjoy the single player storyline, even if it's not as long as it should be, and the impressive graphics and you will keep coming back to the game for its cool multiplayer features. Call of Duty 4 is, as expected, one of the best first person shooters to be released in 2007.

Call of Duty 4 is een zeer intense Shooter, die je geen seconde rust gunt maar helaas ook wat aan de korte kant is. De toevoeging van de uitgebreide multiplayeropties verzacht echter deze pil wat.

Basically if you are in any way inclined to first person shooters then I truly suggest that you get this game, it may be something that you have not every experienced before and may never get the opportunity again, and if you don't like first person shooters or have never tried them then I still recommend you get this game, or at least rent it if your not into multiplayer, you will not regret it.

Endlich gehört auch in der Reihe Call of Duty ("Die Pflicht ruft") der Zweite Weltkrieg der Vergangenheit an. Allerdings verursachen die aktuellen Kriegsschauplätze ein noch beklemmenderes Gefühl, auch wenn sie erfunden sind - vor allem dank der eindrucksvollen Grafik und der realistischen Inszenierung. So gewinnen natürlich auch die Gewaltdarstellungen an Dramatik, was die Alterseinstufung ab 18 Jahren absolut rechtfertigt. Der enorme Unterhaltungswert des Spiels basiert auf Abwechslung. Jede Spielstufe fährt ein neues Szenario auf, in dem mehr oder weniger viel geballert oder geschlichen werden muss. Wie im Kino, verfolgen Sie die Handlung aus verschiedenen Perspektiven. Nach ungefähr sechs Stunden Spielzeit ist aber leider Schluss. Allerdings hat der ausgeklügelte Mehrspielermodus Potenzial für viele Wochen. Die aufwendig gestalteten Spielkulissen, das motivierende Belohnungssystem und die vielfältigen Ausrüstungsmöglichkeiten lassen der Langeweile so bald keine Chance.

Call of Duty 4 certainly is one of the better games in the FPS genre, and a must have for people who like games with a fast gameplay. Yet it is not the game the hype made of it: the singleplayer is way too short, the graphics could be improved and the quality of the sound is simply not good enough to call this an absolute top game.

Comme d'habitude, pas de miracle, ceux qui sont réfractaires aux FPS scriptés ont peu de chance de changer d'idée. En revanche, les joueurs qui savent faire abstraction des skills pour se perdre dans un jeu fortement et habilement scénarisé trouveront là un véritable Graal. Sans conteste, voilà le meilleur volet de la série dont la plus judicieuse idée aura été de laisser tomber la Seconde Guerre mondiale. Ceux qui attendaient un grand show sont servis. L'ensemble ne va pourtant pas sans défauts, avec une physique finalement bien décevante et surtout une durée de vie en solo qui donne à réfléchir.

Mygamer.com
Call of Duty 4 is a solid game that is easy to get into, but has enough content that most gamers will be able to find a lasting appeal for several months in the multiplayer arenas. Being on the PC the game does manage to have tighter controls from its other console based versions, and the addition of Mods will make the game have legs the 360 and PS3 probably won’t ever come close to having. The bottom line is that Call of Duty is a good purchase regardless of its faults and shortcomings.

Trop courte, la campagne solo réserve toutefois des missions intenses, toujours parfaitement rythmées et bourrées d'action, le tout rehaussé par une mise en scène captivante et jamais à court d'idées pour faire monter notre adrénaline. Modern Warfare compense qui plus est largement sa brièveté en solo par un mode multi idéal pour les amateurs du genre, à la fois riche et varié. Bref, le virage opéré par la série lui a parfaitement réussi et témoigne, s'il en était besoin, du talent d'Infinity Ward qui mérite une fois de plus une médaille d'honneur.

1UP
COD4 remains, in every way, a Call of Duty game; a smartly scripted first-person shooter where pressing F on flashing objectives passes for interactivity. The compliment isn't entirely backhanded. Nobody does dug-in heels quite like Infinity Ward, and blitzing through the developer's enemy-flush scenarios is often exhilarating.

Хватит ли этого фанатам, особенно тем, кто знает о вялом отношении Activision к сетевым баталиям предыдущих CoD? Без поддержки разработчиков Modern Warfare быстро канет в Лету, осев в памяти как блокбастер-однодневка из серии "пострелял и забыл".

Но если нынешней осенью вам нужна именно такая игра, то шоу бодрее, чем Call of Duty 4, не найти.

Call of Duty 4, troisième opus des développeurs originaux, s’inscrit dans la digne lignée de la série. Doté d’une campagne scénarisée et prenante associée à une réalisation de grande classe, il devrait séduire les fans de FPS hollywoodien mais restera pourtant un FPS de second choix pour les puristes qui ne supportent pas le scripting intensif. Hormis l’IA des ennemis à la ramasse, son défaut le plus visible concerne sa ridicule durée de vie d’à peine 6 heures en mode normal. Il faudra compter sur le mode multi, de qualité et son tout nouveau système d’expérience privilégiant l’assiduité pour s’offrir de nombreuses heures de jeu supplémentaires.
