  1. What it will deliver is a campaign long enough to keep players busy, and more importantly, interested throughout.
  2. On the DS, Call of Duty 4 is an intense first-person-shooter that's knocked down a few pegs by the lack of online play.

    Standard shooty war game that's unremarkable on DS despite the lack of handheld shooty war games. [Jan 2008, p.61]

    Call of Duty 4 for the DS provides some decent--if watered down--first person shooting action. It doesn't live up to the standard set by Metroid Prime: Hunters or do a terribly good job of replicating the efforts of its console and PC bigger brothers, but it's a decently entertaining game for any DS owner who needs a FPS fix.
  5. The horrific control scheme literally kills the game from the word go, and the pain is only amplified by the equally terrible teammate and enemy AI, the awful graphics, the schizophrenic aerial missions, and on and on and on.
  6. Stick to the solo game and you'll get a decent, serviceable shooter that would have been memorable in 2000 - today, not so much. It does a respectable job of replicating the console experience, but it's still no replacement for the real thing.
  7. Worth a look, then, but probably only if you're in a very exclusive set: FPS-obsessed gamers who only own a Nintendo DS.

    Picked this up second hand in a store. It's quite an old game, I will give it that. All I can say is that if you have played resident evilPicked this up second hand in a store. It's quite an old game, I will give it that. All I can say is that if you have played resident evil revelations with circle pad pro on the DS then playing COD4 on the DS will seem like going back to your playstation 1 days. Awful graphics, awful control scheme. Full Review »
