Not bad. It ran pretty good, not that many slowdowns. If i recall, this uses Unreal 3′s engine.

gholoom….. off


On October 11, 2007 at 9:33 pm

Call of Duty 4 uses a proprietary engine made by Infinity Ward.


On October 11, 2007 at 11:03 pm

Actually, it uses a modified Quake 3 engine – amazing what that little engine can do… IW has permission from id to rename the engine since they’ve moved on to Tech5. Similar to the blessing Valve got from id for taking the Quake engine, updating it and calling it Source.

On October 12, 2007 at 8:49 am

Awesome! I was gonna get this for the ps3 too, but can’t wait to try this.


On October 12, 2007 at 10:32 am

Anyone else thinks this looks and plays alot like Call Of Duty 2? ( And dont state the obvious and say that was a WWII game, you know what I mean )

Guess after the recent spat of UT3 engined games i was expecting something, well………… better.


On October 12, 2007 at 3:25 pm

Is this the same demo that was on Xbox 360?


On October 13, 2007 at 1:34 am

is it a must to have a hardcore graphics card or is it playable with a budget one bocs cod 2 was playable and it look cool :grin:


On October 14, 2007 at 7:42 pm

Get 2x ATI 2900HD’s and 4gb of new DomX then this game looks unreal for sure :-)

Hey guys, just a quick question to see if anyone else had the same problem. I just finished downloading the COD4 demo, but when I try to open the installer, it doesnt do anything and then ends up “not responding”. Has anyone else had that problem? Thanks in advance :)

DJ Gamer

On October 19, 2007 at 1:15 pm

Nevermind, all set. Just slow as hell to load. Weird.


On October 20, 2007 at 9:40 pm

I hope this is better than COD 2. What I mean is that the graphics were great on COD 2, But COD 1 had better game play.


On October 23, 2007 at 7:19 am

:smile: 44hrs i don,t have that kinda time dude i gotta get on wiv life.make it quicker and i have a high end pc godm dammit!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

AGP x1950pro

On October 28, 2007 at 10:49 am

Hmmmmmm, Will a Radeon x1950pro 512mb AGP run this game? Processor is AMD Athlon 64 3200+,Super Talent 2 GB PC3200 ram , 250 GB 7200rpm HD ? I rather know before I waste my time downloading.

On October 28, 2007 at 9:10 pm

I hope this works well on my new laptop, downloading it atm.

Should be ok on 512mb geforce 7950, 2 gig ram, core 2 duo at 2ghz, even though its recommended with 2.4 ghz :neutral:


On November 4, 2007 at 10:49 am

8GB for a demo? :shock:


On November 4, 2007 at 11:24 am

I’m certain that those are the specs for the actual game, not just the demo.

Captain Sebbles

On November 4, 2007 at 12:30 pm

Well, game looks fun, but is it just me or do the graphics look crap? I got a 8800GT, 4G ram, etc and i think i might get this on xbox. Will i see big difference on pc for this game?

scotty to hottie

On November 4, 2007 at 9:06 pm

OK i have a crappy laptop. AMD Turion 4 X2 mobile technology. friggin 896 mb of Ram crappy ATI Radeon Xpress 1150 Card (128)(197mb Shared) 318 mb Total and 1.5 GHz

Would dat even run it on the lowest setting?

And BTW wth does shared memory mean. If I overclock my comp will it run the game fairly well?


On November 25, 2007 at 6:23 pm

you kidding me im running it with a 1.9 single core, 6800, and 1.5 gb at 50 fps


On November 28, 2007 at 8:12 pm

Was the programming written with dual core in mind?
Looks pretty awesome..

Core Extreme

On November 29, 2007 at 10:33 pm

I have Windows Vista Home Premium
Dual core CPU @ 2.4 Ghz
3 Gigabytes of memory
DirectX v10.0
Nvidia LE 7300 graphic card
I’m installing right now and I’ll post the results.

Core Extreme

On November 30, 2007 at 6:21 pm

Just can’t get the graphic settings right.
I guess its my graphic card.
The demo is only one mission.
I expected more like in World In Conflict.


On December 2, 2007 at 6:27 am

Goddam my video card

no wii version either, i guess im gonna have to settle for the DS version


On December 2, 2007 at 4:28 pm

I have a Toshiba laptop with 1gig but running Vista and when i started playing the demo it was so laggy and jumpy.

I went into options and clicked NO, LOW or OFF on everything, switched the resolution to the lowest etc etc and it works fine now.. the graphics are a lot better than COD 2 and 3 even with all the options switched off, the attention to detail is amazing.

Gonna get it for the 360 hope it can keep up with or match Halo 3..

5 stars guys… keep em coming.

Core Extreme

On December 2, 2007 at 5:07 pm

Yeah turning down the graphic settings gives the computer a relief and boost of speed. But turning it down doesn’t really give you the full effect of the game and
takes down the screen size which makes the letters and writing almost unreadable.


On December 6, 2007 at 1:55 am

downloaded it…played it….im buying it…enough said

Does this demo really require 8GB of HD space?? That seems steep for a demo.

Core Extreme

No it doesn’t.

On January 5, 2008 at 4:09 am

how do i down load the demo for call of duty 4?


On January 5, 2008 at 6:11 pm

Hey um, i noticed all my specs go past the recommendation, except for the processor. It says I need a 2.4GHZ Duel Core, I have a 3GHZ Pentium 4. Would it still do good? Like everything maxed out?


On January 20, 2008 at 11:50 am

hi my name is james does COD4 (call of duty 4) work on my computer? i have a sony vgn-n38e model type PCG-7y1M plz reply soon ty


On January 26, 2008 at 6:37 pm

I have a Sony Vaio as well, model VGC-RA820G. I can’t run COD 4 because of the horrible 128 MB ATI Radeon X300 in my system. James, what ever video card you have, will effect whether you will be able to play it or not. Use this website to test your pc for gaming capabilities:

If you can’t, you need an upgrade, or if your computer is a laptop, you will need a new one.

A solid pentium 4 processor will work COD 4, just as long as you have a decent video card, you should have nothing to worry about. Anything above a 2.4 Ghz. I will be upgrading my video card, so I shouldn’t have any issues.

But using the System Requirements Lab should really help, it pinpoints the strenghs and weaknesses of your pc and will tell you if you can handle it. It is a real useful tool.

Core Extreme

On January 26, 2008 at 10:07 pm

I got the full version. Beat it.
I want to get Crysis but I don’t trust them. They get too many cab file installation errors, so you can’t even complete the installation.
