Death From Above: How COD4 is the most realistic war game ever made

VideoGamer: "For all their claims of authenticity, military shooters are as true to life as an episode of Fraggle Rock. Call of Duty 4's 'Death From Above' is a chillingly realistic exception."

Decent article/opinion piece

"Just like in reality, there's a 'pregnant' pause after the launch one of the heavier missiles"

I guessin he means poignant lol

For me it has to be some crazy moments in battlefield multiplayer!

GuruMeditation981d ago

No, pregnant pause is a thing, here's the def:

A pregnant pause is a pause that builds up suspension in the listener/viewer, for a greater dramatic (especially comic) effect of what follows after the pause.

Agree with the rest of ur comment btw ;)

I used to think COD4 was real.

Then I started playing battlefield and I have a feeling it was more like that.

COD is too clean cut and arcade like now. It was awesome for the time, but it's time has come and gone and they aren't doing anything to make it more realistic.

It's a game if you don't like it don't play it.

redcar121981d ago

Killzone is better much better

TheEnigma313981d ago

Nah, COD4 was probably the best fps last gen.

MysticStrummer981d ago

Whether that's true or not is irrelevant. The topic is realism and neither CoD nor KZ is particularly realistic, though it's arguable that KZ is slightly more realistic than CoD with the weight of the weapons (even KZ3 had a weightier feel than CoD) and speed of movement.

Pandamobile981d ago

Killzone is the last game that most sane people would call "realistic".

MysticStrummer981d ago (Edited 981d ago )

@Panda - I might be wasting my time responding to that since you can't seem to read, but...

Hmmm… let's see what I said…

"neither CoD nor KZ is particularly realistic"

Well what do ya know?

I can think of more unrealistic shooters than either KZ or CoD, so saying KZ is the last game most sane people would call realistic is untrue, but a real gamer would know that.

Master-H981d ago

Awesome mission, CoD4 has some of the best singleplayer missions i've played in any FPS shooter.

famoussasjohn981d ago (Edited 981d ago )

Ghillies in the Mist was my favorite.

Grave981d ago

Operation Flashpoint has more realism in it's demo than the entire Call of Duty series combined.

MysticStrummer981d ago

Yeah realism and CoD don't go together well at all.
