only real catch is that the single-player is almost shockingly short.
If you've been keeping up with this style of game, you'll probably
shoot your way to the credits in under five hours. While you can raise
the difficulty to give yourself more of a challenge, the main thing
this does is make the enemies frustratingly deadly, which sort of
detracts from the fun.
While it may have a lack of single-player
quantity, it makes up for most of it with its quality. The game tells
its story from multiple perspectives, and you'll play as a new British
SAS operative as well as a US Marine. The campaign takes you from a
rainy night out at sea on a boat that's in the process of sinking to a
missile silo where it's on you to save millions from an unsavory
nuclear-powered death. Along the way, there are plenty of jaw-dropping
moments where you'll look around the room for someone to whom you can
say, "I can't believe that just happened." In a world filled with war
games in which the good guys come out unscathed and the world is left
at total peace, Call of Duty 4 will wake you up like a face full of ice
The action in the campaign is usually very
straightforward. You have a compass at the bottom of your screen, and
the direction of your current objective is very plainly marked. But
getting from point A to point B is never as simple as running in a
straight line, as you'll be conducting full-scale assaults in Middle
Eastern countries by moving from house to house, taking out what seems
like a never-ending stream of enemy troops along the way. You'll also
get an opportunity to raid Russian farmhouses in search of terrorist
leaders, disguise yourself as the enemy, and, in one sequence, don a
brushlike ghillie suit and crawl through the brush as enemy troops and
tanks roll right past you. It's a breathtaking moment in a campaign
filled with breathtaking moments. Unfortunately, it's about half as
long as the average shooter, and there are plenty of sequences where
you wish there were just one or two more hills to take.
