The official Xbox 360 magazine (us) has given us the first magazine review for Call Of Duty 4 Modern Warfare. Thankfully its a good one with a 10/10 score.
Call of Duty 4 was going to be my first Call of Duty game. Thankfully, it is the best COD. Thanks Infinity Ward =)
Bah, that's not true. 10/10 is a huge failure for the reviewer. NO game can ever be perfect. They ALL have flaws. This 10/10 thingie is becoming rediculous. It has to stop.
Well this is perfect so blow it out your ass
If you've ever cracked open an OXM, you'd know that they'd give an 11 to a perfect game, which they clearly state will never happen.
Obviously, no game is perfect because that would mean that everybody likes the game and there are no flaws whatsoever. This is simply impossible.
But why have a scoring system that goes to 10, when no game will ever accomplish that?! You would have to reduce the max score to an 8 or something which is ridiculous obviously.
I see remarks like yours come up frequently and I don't know why it's so hard to understand that giving a game a 10 is just purely symbolic, that's it!
Their scale goes to 11. Their description of a score of 10 does NOT say the game is perfect.
But I'm talking in general now.
Every time a game get's a perfect score by whatever review magazine/site, the same (ridiculous) discussion surfaces again and again.
I love how people randomly disagree with posts. You can disagree, but you're wrong. You see, I have a little thing called "facts" to back up my statement. You can start by opening the newest issue of OXM, and turning to page 79.
Hail to the king baby, this game will be the best FPS this hollyday.
No need to bash Haze but this is a bigger game for the ps3 and 360
It'll still be outsold by Halo 3, though.
EDIT: OMG! I have 2 disagrees for asking what his point is? Wow that is freaking sad.
How many multiplayer maps at launch? The Beta was great but crash was the only map I enjoyed. Overgrown I hated and (I forgot its name) got old fast.
I liked Crash and Overgrown pretty equally. But I agree, Vacant got pretty stale fast, since about the only tactic anyone used was to run around with a LMG holding down the trigger. Or maybe a turd that couldn't use bullets just using his two M203 nades to get 2 or 3 kills, then die.
Hoping for a ton of maps also.
Ugh I hated Vacant also...actually I loathed having to play it, I always got ass raped by some jackass holding down the trigger or being caught in the thousands of grenades going everywhere that you cant get away from because the damn map is so narrow
COD4 MW has all the ingredients for game of the year, deep multiplayer, campaign looks awesome from the videos i seen, stunning gfx, and it runs smooth as butter. can't wait for next month.
Mass effect, Boishock, Uncharted and Ratchet all have the makings of Game of the Year. every ratchet game ever made up till deadlock on PS2 made Game of the year. and Bioshock to me was even better than halo 3. and even looks better. and mass effect prolly be nominated along with uncharted. as both those too games are being hyped way more than COD4. with that being said. be sure that it will be one of 4 aforementioned games i listed thatt will take home that prize.
Yea cod isnt gonna be goty its gonna be either mass effect or bioshock.
Just WOW! Really looking forward to this sh*t!
I really liked this part:
The visuals look better in motion.
In the moste tense moment in the game's best level (All Ghillied Up), all you can do is wait and pray. (It shows a pic of you prone with enemies 5-10 feet away)
Fire? Chaos? Guns blazing? Does it look like Call of Duty now?
Smash people like ants in the AC-130 gunship level.
A whopping 16 multiplayer maps await you out of the box.

60 FPS- as if u didn't know already
World War II is history! With a reinvigorated developer at the helm, Call of Duty 4 reinvents a franchise - and damn near perfects the military shooter in the process.
to play this game on my ps3! I would buy it for my 360, but I've given up on Live sadly, costs way too much for my taste :(
But yer so many good games this year! I'm going to use that extra hundred to actually buy this game! So excited! :D
After reading down I have since changed my comment realizing you pay $90 and not $50 and being a university student myself I can completely understand where your coming from.
You shouldn't invest in gaming complaining about $50 a year its going to be worth it even more after the fall update.
If you really have an Xbox 360 you should wait untill a multi platform reviewer; reviews both versions and then decide which version to get.
I can sense the anger and tension in your writing, and I wish to relieve that. In Australia it costs a hell of a lot more than $50 dollars. $90 dollars I believe. I don't know, maybe your parents buy you everything and you have never had to budget your own money or whatever the case may be. A university student rarely has enough spare time and money to do anything, let alone gaming when he's making his own way.
So 'Power of Green', I would appreciate it if you would not judge others, though you may love your Live and think it is worth every penny you pay for it, I see a game, I see a service, I see one service for 90 dollars, and I see the same service for free, which service would you choose?
It's not that I have anything against Live, I've enjoyed it thoroughly, it's just as I've stated I have to cut down and try and save and invest money, rather than spend it all unnecessarily.
Now, 'Power of Green', I'd appreciate it if you would not judge me and my financial situation as a University student and I love gaming, so I will continue to invest in that, it's simply a service I can do without and replace in order to save and cut costs.
I don't want to pay for online either, since I'm already paying for my internet.
That is also why I never adopted WOW. Paying for the game and then paying again to play online. Then I feel cheated if I don't play a whole month or two.
Damn...Economics class. Law of Diminishing Returns and Invisible Hand, get out of my head.
Hmmm. You came to the conclusion I was angry?, just going off of all the "extra money" you spend on console(s) and games in comparison to an annual fee.. lol
You pay for a service.
xhi4 $40 for a year of xboxlive is expensive to u ? dont compare net bills to live payment as ina year i pay $600 net bills
its not 40 dollars here, its $90. Every little bit counts, a hundred dollars is a lot of money to me. After University it will be but petty pocket change, although until I get my degree and start working full time, I must save and do the best I can. I'm sure you can understand that, even if you are living comfortably that $90 dollars comparable to $0 for online play is a tasty offer.
I used live maybe 20 times during those 12 months. Although it may be worth it to some it wasn't for me. I'll be getting the ps3 version too. Although I rarely play online I do like to pop in once in a while and I don't want to pay for it.
"Next-gen" console gaming is a VERY expensive hobby. If $50/year is out of your budget, you've probably picked the wrong hobby. $50 for the premier online gaming service is a flash in the pan compared to what you're paying for a next-gen console, games, and extras.
you got owned..
LOL. One would rather be dumb to buy cod4 on ps3 if they have 360. Since 98% games are better on 360 and not forgetting rumble, online friends list, achievements. I would like to see your gamertags those who claim they have a 360 and are mostly ps3 fannies. Also 50$($90) is not much and since there are hardly any games for ps3 so that money is saved and one game on 360 is worth more than 3 mediocre ones on ps3.
I don't have to pay a dime to play Call of Duty 4 online, and so far I haven't experienced any lag in Motorstorm or Warhawk (despite the ridiculous number of players). Justify the price of Xbox Live all you want POG; $50 is a LOT of money. Then again, you claim that you lose $50 in change just in your sofa, so you must be pouring money out the wah-zoo.
The better version will be on a $399 Bluray console that will be FREE online (with no lag remember that!), now you tell me which one is better value for money.
... and can't wait for the full realese! I want it now!
The game is great BTW:P
He said he would have to pay 90 bucks where he is from. Plus he goes to college. You ever been to college? You have to pay for your own books, supplies, food(especially if you live on campus) Plus you gotta be able to hold a job of some sort or get some other kind of income, not to mention pay to attend the university alone.
90 bucks can seem like 900 if you're on a budget.
What he said: "I have a PS3 and Xbox 360 and $90 is too much for a year of LIVE service".
You do know that the PS3 and Xbox 360 are both more money in AU than USA?
Do you see a problem with the logic in what he is saying? That he has enough money to buy both the Boxes, is on a tight budget then complains about the cost of the service -- that is roughly the cost of a single game?
I call BS. He doesnt have a Xbox 360, he's just wanting to drag out the $3.30 per month is too much for Xbox LIVE.
Ive never spent a better $42 than I did for my 12+1 Month Xbox LIVE Gold.
how long is the single player campaign?
How many times do you feel like playing it?
For real this time. Most likely not over 20 hours. I'm leaning towards 15 hours.
Wow 3 10/10 games in last 2 months. Good to be 360 owner. But finally something good for ps3 owners as well. Wish we could have online battle between 360 and ps3 players in COD4. That wud take console wars to whole new level ;)
That's because Bioshock deserved it...
Halo 3 did NOT! (10 out of 10??? You have to be kidding me!)
COD4 will probably deserve it though.
Why did Heavenly Sword not get a 9 or 10??? It pretty much blows all other next-gen action games out of the water...until DMC4, of course!
I'd say HS, COD4, Uncharted, Haze, Assassin's Creed, Eye of Judgement, R&CF:TofD, Army of Two, and Kayne and Lynch will make this a pretty darn good PS3 owner year also though...
" With that said, the console similarities end when it comes to textures, lighting and resolutions, because those three areas make the PlayStation 3 version definitely excel over the Xbox 360 SKU."
Not me saying it but Infinity Award so don't shoot the messenger.
Infinity Ward are credit to Video games industry for developing for PC, XBOX360 & PS3 version individually to its strengths. No Lead Platform used.
It almost only a year since PS3 has been out & we begin to see its edge slowly begin to shine though.
Does make me grin though.. ; )
i think ill belive the dev of the game instead of some guys openion the games has been stated to look identical on all platforms but only this article u have haha try harder sony fans360 version will score higher
So the PS3 version will be better (marginally) and the XB360 version will most probably score a .1 or so higher because of bias... so nothing new really here but....
So many 10/10 scores? I mean - come on!!! We are at the start of this new generation and reviewers are overlooking all kinds of things to give Halo, Bioshock etc 10/10 reviews - which they get caught out on. But that poses the question:
Do we now assume that the ultimate has been reached for this gen already? I mean - is it not possible to exceed the standard set by Bioshock and Halo? Is this as good as it is going to get this gen? Or are the reviewers reviewing these games as if it is a PS2 game?
What if MGS4 or KZ2 or Drake blows these titles away? Will they be 10/10? Or are we going for 11/10 now?
I think the reviewers (some of them little fat 15 year olds who only likes FPS mouthing of as if they are some kind of special being) blew it. They set the bar so low, showed so much bias, became so unprofessional, that they did not just mess up their own reputations. By end of next year we will have to look back, take the best games by end of next year, give them an 8 score, and re-rate all games in comparison to them so that there is some differentiation in scores for the next 5 years. Otherwise we will see 50 games being vastly different in quality - yet all stuck in the 10/10 scores.
Good going their you lazy bunch of fat assed biased couch potatoes. Good going magazine editors. You just stuffed up your reputations and you are due for replacement. You are a bunch of unprofessional twits.
We need a Rating standard - and we hope you will not form part of it.
"So many 10/10 scores? I mean - come on!!! We are at the start of this new generation "
YOu blind sony lemming still in denial. New gen started 2 years back. All the reviewers in the world whether they are of print media or online, are all fat lazy kids? RIGHT? They have reviewd games on 360 for about 2 years and they dont know jack. Rather you, a sony turd would like to change the way ratings are done so that your pathetic games like lair can get higher score. Go back to your 2 hit wonder console.
They were basing it I'm guessing off the pre released photo's from a few months ago which in the pics the ps3 version was ahead by 3 weeks in design so that's not them nor a true statement, but we'll all see for real at release.
However as usual, the Xbox 360 version will be a bit better, you'll see.
and it has been almost a year.
Do you own a PS3?
If so I think you should give NBA 2K8 a try on both (the 360 and PS3) then get back to me.
Normally I would agree with a comment like yours, or maybe argue that Oblivion and DIRT are better on the PS3, but after playing NBA 2K8 on both systems there is no debating it. NBA 2K8 runs better on the PS3. I'm not a fan of the game personally but all of my friends are and we have played the game at length on both. Without question it runs nearly flawless on the PS3 where there are some hiccups /stuttering and frame rate problems on the 360 version.
The message has been talked about and is off topic.
Before you dissagree this dude posted that memory- Assasin's Creed post before he EDITED the post with this, it could either be something IW really said or not, considering IW swears up and down they're clones of eachother with no diferences what so ever. Still trying to get my head around RAM, HDR capabilities and this dudes post . He was also talking about DVD9 at first.
It's about COD4. This news has been submitted under multiplatform therefore the comments apply to both XBOX360 & PS3 version.
No one's fighting what console this game's on its the message you're tying to prove with a statment thats not a quote doesn't even make sense. But hey we'll see when the multi player reviewers; review the game won't we.
Everybody already knows ther isn't any ports.
a release date for the ps3 version, not that i own a ps3, im just noticing a whole lot of delays in multiplatform games
its the same release date as the pc and 360 version.
Halo 3 and Call of Duty 4 will satisfy my FPS needs for a long long time! :)
You damn right.
As long as I played CoD2, and Halo 2 online, I forsee much great gaming in my future.
CoD3 was meh online...
That´s kinda bad, i expected 24 atleast..
Yep one would think since consoles are same across so they could add more multiplayer. BF series support upto 64players and that my friend is hectic as hell - but fun. Even BF:MC on 360 was 24 player how come they stopped at 16? Also what about ps3 and pc versions? How many player do they support?
PDZ on 360 was 32 players with no lag at all. It's like with Halo, the game is designed around a set amount of players. 2 v 2 is great with halo, even though the game supports 16.
As there weren't enough AAA 10/10 games, another joins the ranks of 10/10 GOTY worthies. BioShock, Halo 3, Orange Box and now Call Of Duty 4. And Assassin's Creed, Mass Effect, Rock Band and Mario Galaxy aren't even out!
Glad to have it under reserved =)
this is the Only FPS to close this year
the only thing I wish the added was keyboard and mouse support and cross platform play. Oh well, you cant have it all! Gonna get this on day one.
I'm very glad that I preordered it. I have a feeling that COD4 is just going to fly off the shelves on it's release.
I think 10/10 is a bit over the top...must mean the SP is pretty good I guess...cause everyone already knew the MP is kickass.
Another AAA game in 2007 :p They just don't stop coming, on whatever platform it is ;)
The 360 sure is getting a lot of games rated 9.0 or higher lately. Not just by OXM, but by multiple review outlets. It's a great time to be a 360 owner!
The good games are starting to flow. CoD4 is just another in a line of amazing games. I don't even use the word "amazing" often..this game though. God damn.
First off Infinity ward didnt say that it was just one reviewer and while your listing reveiws why dont you list the one that was on this very site, what was it 2 days ago that said both looked exactly the same(the pc looked better) which goes along with what the devs say. Now are both going to be idenicle no probably not and im sure when the screen shots come out there will be like a hundred posts with one side saying that theres is better or what have you when the truth is all in all they both will be exactly the same. I hope though that when this game does come the people on this site wont turn it into a flame war and just sit back and be happy that this gen ir producing very good games. Good gaming
What can i say...Overhyped!
No fvcking way is this game overhyped. Theres always some turd who claims a game is overhyped. Wtf? A game is legitimately awesome and some d!ckhead thinks he'll look cool and type "Overhyped!".
GTFO. If any game this year deserves this much hype, it's this one. Bioshock didn't get much hype into AFTER it was released and everyone saw how awesome it was.
Do you even know what "hyped" means? I doubt it.
A game is overhyped when it´s tattooed on one of your lower body parts.
Halo 3 was a little overhyped, but I´ve heard nothing about Call of Duty 4 on TV or the newspaper. If I hadn´t played the beta, or read some news on game sites, or played CoD 2 & 3 I would have no idea that there is a Call of Duty 4 coming out.
