Guardian Unlimited's first impressions from a night with Infinity Ward's riproaring modern shooter: " ..Oh and the visuals are stunning - not just for effects or basic aesthetic competence, but for the sense of place. The detail. Pulverised low-rise buildings, bullet-riddled vehicles burnt out and rusting in the sun, rubbish swirling through deserted streets like tumbleweed. CoD4 is a patchwork of every nightmare battlezone to hit our screens for the last twenty years. In its approximation of war-battered streets, all that's missing is haunted-eyed kids playing amid the soldiers."
"I advise you to buy this game when it hits the shelves on Friday and then cancel whatever you have planned for next weekend. As a lesson in multiplayer level design, CoD 4 is quite possibly peerless."
