Mixed with explosive action, Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare also delivers special effects, including use of depth of field, rim-lighting, character self-shadowing, real time post-processing, texture streaming as well as physics-enabled effects. Infinity Ward deployed a dedicated team from the start to deliver a new level of depth to multiplayer. Building on the hit "Call of Duty 2" online experience, Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare's new multiplayer provides the community an addictive and accessible experience to gamers of all levels.

  1. Start to finish, online or off, Call of Duty 4 is solid gold. Some might decry the single-player’s short length or that it’s more of the same, but its amazing quality and the Arcade mode...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.
  2. Come for the engrossing single player campaign, stay for the addicting multiplayer.
  3. 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.
  4. Call of Duty 4 is a great online shooter, and welcome competition to both Counter-Strike: Source and Battlefield 2. The single player campaign is everything you can expect from a Call of Duty game and then some.
  5. Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare may be relatively short with just six to seven hours playing time, but thanks to the brilliant staging those hours are the most impressive ones we've experienced with any action game yet.
  6. 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.
  7. 80
    Infinity Ward has mastered a formula of its own making for both single- and multiplayer combat; Call of Duty 4 is louder, better looking, and more chaotic than ever. But it's certainly a formula, one that becomes more transparent with each version.

    The single player is thrilling. The multiplayer, however, is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! As you complete achievements, win matches, and gain kills, The single player is thrilling. The multiplayer, however, is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! As you complete achievements, win matches, and gain kills, you'll unlock new weapons, perks and equipment. I got to level 18 (that's about halfway) in a single evening. You can take any role in a variety of game modes. Don your ghillie suit, and snipe from the tall grass, clear out campers with a shotgun, or run around blasting people with an RPD for massive firepower. The single player is slightly short, but damn sweet. Worth it if you're only going to play SP or MP. Amazing FPS action. Expand

    Meu primeiro jogo de guerra moderna, é realmente sensacional, jogabilidade, gráficos, história. O único defeito é que a campanha é curtinha.
