Infinity Ward Talks Call of Duty 4 Achievements

I think they did a FANTASTIC job with those achievements making them interesting and at the same FUN to get a thing a LOT of devs seem to forget when creating achievements

also thanks good for a reduction in the number of multiplayer achievements :)

I've put hundreds of hours into the Call of Duty series, and you know how long I've played online multiplayer? maybe 15 minutes..MAYBE

I serverly dislike Call of Duty multiplayer but love the campaign.

And the achievements for COD4 don't seem extremely hard to get, 1000/1000 here I come :D

after you get the Mile High Achievement on Veteran. That was one of the toughest I've had to do in a looong time.

I just got my 1000 points for COD4 tonight! BOOYAH

What I had left to do was the "Your Show Sucks" and "Eyes and Ears" achievements and completed both of them tonight but getting the Mile High Achievement on Veteran was tough but finally got it after a few hours and a few day trying. Won't be playing that part of the game ever again, LOL
