GBU game review for Call of Duty 4:Modern Warfare (Xbox360)

I got to thinking about this one the other day when Activision announced that the ‘Call of Duty’ name is back in the Modern Warfare 2 title…….whatever Activision, what we have here is an awesome military first person shooter and it’s upcoming sequel should be as great if not better. Here’s my thoughts on the game that took the series out of the tired WW2 theme (which Activision made sure to take it back to). I played through it on the Xbox360, the same experience can be had on the PC and the PS3 as well.

The Good – The single player campaign has some of the most intense first person shooter action around, it’s top notch quality from beginning to end. As the title implies it’s in a modern day setting so all the weapons are current, and the locales are straight from today’s headlines. Levels that put a new spin on your average shooter such as the ‘Death From Above’ level, and the sniper levels are incredibly tense. Tons of cinematic moments weave seamlessly into the gameplay. Graphics engine that’s detailed, fast and smooth, so much in fact that the next game in the series(World At War) used the same engine and runs great on the major platforms(PC,360,PS3). Multiplayer that many gamers swear by, it’s still high up on the xbox live activity list.

The Bad – The campaign is VERY short…probably take most gamers like 6hrs. to get through…AI isn’t always the smartest…umm, there’s not much else in this game that I think is bad. Maybe the intensity will tire some out *shrugs*.

The UglyThe rap song that plays during the ending credits….talk about out of place.

Modern Warfare 2 trailer, Oorah!!

So yeah, gametrailers came through with the full trailer for Modern Warfare 2….The continuation of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare (durr), looks like the devs, Infinity Ward, are dropping the Call of Duty name. Why, who knows, maybe cuz IW wants to keep their war games in the modern world now, and their publisher, Activision, doesn’t mind going down the WWII road over and over again, even with different devs. Don’t get me wrong, Call of Duty:World At War is pretty tight, but I guess consumers might get confused, this way they know MW is, well, modern….and COD probably stays WWII, but I could be wrong…either way, enjoy the new trailer, whichs looks slick as ever with new snow environments and an even bigger scope in cinematic action than before. Coming 11-10-09.

Dj Hero

I’m your hero. We all know this. Just accept. It’s ok. But I am NOT a DJ hero. I tried, in college. as most dudes did. MAAAAN listen to this bob marley. It’s SO DEEP. We checked Activision Blizzard’s website and no dice on this announcement but kotaku is reporting DJ Hero is coming in the fall. This reminds me of a particularly good (in my opinion) but also bad (in my opinion) song by the Inspiral Carpets ” She comes in the fall”. Man, check out Tom Hingley’s shorts. Hello 1990.
