Call Of Duty 4 Is One Of The Most Overrated Games This Gen

Call Of Duty 4 is, to many gamers, the epitome of an FPS game. It revolutionized the genre. Dozens of games have attempted to replicate the success of Call Of Duty 4 by either borrowing its multiplayer system, or taking cues from the way the weapons work in the game. But, as many older games do, Call Of Duty 4 is remembered for what it did absolutely right, and not wrong. Here is why Call Of Duty 4 is one of the most overrated titles this generation.

I believe COD is over-rated all together. Just my opinion.

alousow1836d ago

World at war best cod ever made.

dangert121836d ago

Best CoD i've played only one i enjoyed bubbles

loulou1836d ago

leave it out. modern warfare was one of the best on-line multi-player experiences to date.

it was all down hill after that.

Jobesy1836d ago

COD 4 and WaW were the only COD games this gen that promoted teamwork. All COD games after WaW promoted rambo type play.

Salooh1836d ago

World at war was a taste matter. People who like old weapons and atmosphere loved it. But no one can deny how good the Single player and zombies are. It deserved it's rate too just like Mw1.

Mw2 was a let down a little bit but it needed skills too that's why i liked it. After that call of duty went from playing it every day to ones in a month or even more. Yea, it's that boring to me..

WaW was good until they put out the paid map packs which splintered the online community.

CoD4 was not overrated. When it came out, it was the most accessible competitive modern military shooter on the market. It had lots of unlocks to encourage people to keep playing, and was way more balanced than more recent CoD games. I still play CoD4 every once in a while, and there are still people playing it... that says a lot about how good of a game it is. Personally, I'm a Battlefield/Killzone kinda guy, but I will give CoD4 props for being a revolutionary shooter, and one of the defining games of this generation.

I agree...It was the most fun..maybe not the best, but it had a certain balance too it regardless of what others say.

Eyeco1836d ago

[email protected] only redeeming quality was it's high difficulty other than that it was a HUGE step back for the series, it just wasn't to hot of a game

FITgamer1836d ago

@loulou When it comes to COD 4 was definitely the best one, but IMPO Bad Company 2 was the best FPS MP i've ever played, especially if you include the Vietnam expansion pack.

BattleAxe1835d ago

CoD4, CoD: WaW and MW2 were my favorites.

CoD4 did redefine gaming as we know it. It is also the only CoD i've ever bought

Cam9771836d ago (Edited 1836d ago )

Call Of Duty 4 re-established a dying franchise. All of the COD games to follow were absolutely overrated (barring WAW).

MrStealYourGirl1835d ago

In my opinion, your opinion is fact. lol

Blaze9291835d ago

CoD4 was actually worthy every praise it received, for the time. I havent experienced a FPS mission as captivating as All Ghillied Up to this day.

I'd have to disagree. I would say the Call of Duty franchise as a whole is overrated but CoD4 in particular is one the greatest multiplayer shooters ever made. Although that's just my opinion. It's a shame it's been in a damn near unplayable state for the last couple years.

Majin-vegeta1836d ago

This but i have to disagree on the unplayable part.What system do you play it on??I play on PS3 and it's rare to find a hacker on it maybe 2/10 lobbies are hacked but other than that i can play it normally.

BALLARD321836d ago

360. It's mostly the infection lobby stuff with super speeds and unlimited ammo.

T21836d ago

I agree, I played for years and only found a few hacked lobbies on ps3, the article is short and has no great arguments... World at War is sht first of all, the guns are boring, the movement was terrible, the dogs were impossible to defend.

COD4 had it's defects sure, but who knew everyone was going to start using martyrnoob or juggernoob at the time. both could be combated if you played well. The sniper rifles were perfect as well as the semi-auto rifles like the g3 and m14. There probably is no other COD where all the guns are effective and fun to use. The maps were good, there was some camping but it was predictable, you just threw a grenade in the same building and boom! bye bye camper.
In short, COD4 was the pinnacle of innovation for it's time, then somehow they just fkd it all up... MW2 was fun, but after that there are some seriously bad games with terrible connections. How can a multiplayer first person shooter even survive with bad connections?

trenso11836d ago

@joecanada martydom and juggernaut could be countered, if you hear a ding when you kill some one you know not run towards his body or if you too close take the nade and chuck it through the nearest door.

Root1836d ago

The way I see it is that COD 4 was, in MY opinion, was Counterstrike for noobs

Root1836d ago

LOL is that comment immature, please explain to me.

Jeez no wonder people get bubbled down for nothing on this site when people think like you

SilentNegotiator1836d ago (Edited 1836d ago )

It's not like Counterstrike was a complex game. Unless your only definition of "not for noobs" is "simply having good reflexes", that isn't a fair judgement.

Root1836d ago (Edited 1836d ago )

There was always people complaining at the time, before COD, that it was "too hard" or "too difficult". I mean there was and still is a lot of pro players on Counter Strike, it had a LOT of experienced players because the game relied on skill.....while COD does not

Then COD comes out with it's easy perks, bugs, glitches to exploit, over powered guns, kill streaks ect

"Great....this is easy, we'll play this instead"

T21836d ago

@root - that's like saying more options = no skill. That's what terrible battlefield players say all the time.. "tanks are for noobs". More options in a game require more thinking, battlefield being the extreme example. When you see a guy flying around in a chopper, getting 20 kills and noone able to shoot him down it's frustrating as hell, but in no way is it indicating no skill. All of COD perks and streaks just require you to think of your loadout and adjust accordingly...

SilentNegotiator1836d ago

One of the most effective weapons in the game is available from the start (M16). The other weapons are pretty much for specializing.

Counterstrike has its share of exploits.

Kill streaks are just another way to play the genre and change the dynamic. Nothing good or bad other than personal taste.

Mini05101835d ago

It's immature because cod4 is a different style of shooter than counterstrike. Just because it has lower recoil and easier to play doesn't mean it's for noobs.
So it's not for pro player then?

That's why it's immature. and 25 other people probably think more or less the same way. Think before jump to the conclusion about which people on this site vote you down for no reason. There's always a reason.

saggysack791836d ago

i have more fun playing pong

-GametimeUK-1836d ago

CoD4 overrated? I don't see it being anybodies fave game aside from Call of Duty fanatics. It got the critical and commercial success it deserved, though.

A great multiplayer mode, awesome single player with the ghillie in the mist mission and the game put killstreaks and the perk system on the map.
