Call of Duty 4 is one of the most anticipated first-person-shooters of 2007, and we’re happy to report that it doesn’t disappoint. In fact, if it had arrived earlier in the year, it would have been a strong contender for our game of the...

Despite the insistence of some, the games are in fact not a lifestyle choice, but they are damn entertaining games to play. is no different, using two different characters to drive a single player campaign plausible enough to be a Hollywood movie. ...

Call of Duty was one of the games that defined the WW2 FPS genre, and Call of Duty 2 was certainly a worthy follow-up. Sure, Call of Duty 3 really did feel like, to borrow a World War 2 analogy, a WW2 FPS too far, but that was more due to the series...

Thank goodness, Call of Duty 4 is not based on World War II campaigns anymore.I guess there are times when we have enough of World War II games out there (First Person Shooter, Strategy, you name it). Don’t get me wrong, I am a fan of World War...

Youre in the army, now. Any more realistic and youd need body armour. Ever since iDs Wolfenstein 3D came out in 1992, World War II has inspired a long line of games. Credit for several of the best can be claimed by the developers of Call of Duty...

Call of Duty jumps into the 21st century with a bang. This latest edition of Call of Duty marks a quantum shift in the games evolution. Instead of WWII combat - fighting as a squaddie for one of the three main European protagonists - youre now...

Absolutely brilliant. COD4 looks superb, plays amazingly and is utterly, hopelessly, sleep-deprivingly engrossing. Its possible, following a years worth of games such as Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter 2, that gamers might be slightly sceptical...

Previous entries in the Call of Duty series have all been based around the Second World War. Modern Warfare, as its name suggests, brings the action into present day, leaving you to deal with the reality of war in the 21st century, including the...

With great titles like Halo 3 and BioShock out in the wild, it seemed like this year couldn’t get any better for the First Person Shooter fan. And then comes Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, flinging a stun grenade at us and leaving our jaw...

Stunning, but short in single-player mode. Call Of Duty 4 somehow manages to again raise the bar for the first-person shooter, and promptly slaps down the gauntlet to the soon-to-follow Crysis. Marvellous. Activision - Call Of Duty 4 price Buy Call...

Oh how I missed Call of Duty on the PC. Call of Duty 3 was a console only release but it wasn't by the folks at Infinity Ward. No, they had something better in mind and it takes the Call of Duty series to the modern era. No more World War II setting...

Ditching its original World War II setting for the war on terror might seem like a faddish misfire, but Call of Duty 4 is more 24 than Gulf War. An impressively cinematic narrative adds purpose to the fighting, and is packed with outrageous twists...

The Call of Duty games, while some of the finest shooters ever made, arent known for their storylines; in the World War II settings, you jump from one front and force to the next with little warning. While the plot isnt the strongest element of Call...

Once in a while, a game comes along that is so good that it captures your attention, and like a rabid dog that has attached itself to your throat, just wont let go. Call of Duty 4 is one of those games. It engrossed me so much that I finished it...

Just call it the anti-Crysis. If Crytek’s immersive next-gen messiah is suppose to usher in a revolutionary era of open-ended shooters, Infinity Ward’s Call of Duty 4 shows us why linear missions and wholly scripted gameplay aren’t...

Call of Duty 4: Modern Combat is easily the best game in the history of the franchise, at least from a technical standpoint. I didn’t find it nearly as immersive or personally rewarding as I did the previous WWII games where I actually came away...

Activision has had excellent results with their Call of Duty series. As the history of the game goes, it starts off with Call of Duty which follows some actual historical references. COD was a very big multiplayer game and was played on many an...
