It's eight years old. Its parent series is derided in the press for its lack of innovation. But the original 'Modern Warfare' still rules.
The best COD in the series followed by WAW. I enjoy the simple multiplayer shooters. Give me an arsenal and a few perk slots and I'm good. This is why I also prefer Uncharted 2 MP > Uncharted 3 MP
Nope.. Here's what you guys need to learn. COD4 is the "best one of its time". Given the time element COD4 is the best and of the the best games ever made. BUT.. pretty much every COD iteration after improves on the next one. Now they did add stuff that players did not like but overall every game improved somewhat. So I don't agree that COD4 provides a thrill that isn't matched today.
How is a game ''improving'' if it adds stuff people don't like?
@ mikeslemonade The biggest pile of crap I have read all day. more does not always equal better... The only thing that arguably (ARGUABLY) has improved is the graphics and to offset that the network code has got worse with each game. The map designs have just got plain rubbish to the point of if you're not running round like a headless chicken with an smg your only other option is to sit with your back to a wall. I don't know anybody who prefers the new cods over cod4 and the only reason they have stopped playing it is because of modders who have ruined COD4 online.
@DARK WITNESS Exactly. Adding things is pretty much the core problem of Call of Duty at the moment. More and more, bigger and bigger... Just stop for a moment and think about what made the game so great. Current maps are rubbish and campaigns are just "America, fuck yeah!". They should look at their old campaign missions like Vendetta from WaW, that opening sequence is just brilliant, dark and gritty. But they're clearly making these games for kids now so I doubt we'll see something like that any time soon...
@ JMaineGaming 100% agree with you on both game series.
Call of Duty 4 IS a modern shooter though
Still miss its amazing campaign and my favorite map : Chinatown
Release again on ps4/xone. Oh and patch pc version it game pad support. Best cod by far. Not to much and not to little. Good balanced game, with the best maps
Best CoD ever! And I'm even not a CoD fan...
Remaster ultimate hd edition lol!
Release it to PS4 nooooow !!!! Best arcade shooter ever :)
CoD 4 was pretty amazing for its time, and it was a blast to play, but c'mon people... That was nearly 8 years ago... There have been better games released since then... Take off those goggles and see for yourself
Can you give an example of a better game?
Metroid Prime... I don't mean FPS games, I mean games in general
I dnt touch call of duty AT ALL now a days. The last call of duty I played and enjoyed was black ops 1. Too much cheesy perks and unnecessary crap.
i miss the g3 , this needs a remaster
Still the best COD. Just give me a remaster of COD4 and im bless.
Still the best COD ever made. Release a remaster. (DON'T CHANGE ANY CODE AT ALL) Just up the graphics
the best COD game out there. Most of the maps were well balanced overgrown,crash site were my favorites.
The only time I will buy another COD game is if they bring back MW1 again for current consoles.
