The makers of Call of Duty 4 said they wanted to finally nail the cinematic "movie in a video game" experience. They almost got it right, but they made it three hours too long.
Clocking in at five hours, Call of Duty 4 is the shortest blockbuster video game in recent memory. But those few hours are a robust, thrilling ride with all the sparkle and flash of a Hollywood summer movie. And like a summer action flick, you can expect plenty of spectacle, lots of special effects, and not a whole lot of plot or dialogue to get in the way
