Top selling game for the year 2007: Call of Duty 4 deserved IGN’s Best Xbox 360 Game.
The game was much appreciated by the critics because of its spectacular gameplay and story. Infinity Ward definitely had the upper hand in this case as they were future-oriented.
The realistic depiction of the horrific aspect of modern warfare is praiseworthy. The highly advanced graphics reveal a true portrayal of terrorism and bloodshed.
The story comes to life because the player’s mission is like a living death challenge with each mission focussing on a series of objectives. For instance, eliminating the enemies in a specified location might result in the unintentional killing of a civilian. The game questions the very idea of being a “good guy”. The characters have to deal with dilemmatic situations where you question you question the whole concept of morality.
Terrorism is at its peak. The striking feature of the game is that deathmatch based multiplayer mode. No doubt it deserves the title of the best competitive online first shooters. It is no less than an addiction where you lose hours and hours because you’re so tied up.
The weapon section is definitely a treat to our eyes, weapon customisation being the new focus. There is an outstanding variety of weapons at each successive level. The enormous amount of accessories does quench the thirst for quality weapons.
Each level demands a new way of unlocking a weapon. It’s next to impossible to grab everything for a single weapon. Isn’t it enthralling?
Ground War Mode
Restoring its original form, this still remains one of the biggest highlights of the game.
