I really love the game. I rented it over the weekend and now I regret getting GRAW 2 for Christmas instead. COD 4 is probably the best shooter I have ever played. The multiplayer is addicting, the graphics are great, considering the framerate never goes below 60 (Halo 3, I'm looking at you). I especially loved the Singleplayer. Even though sometimes I felt like I was playing some sort of next gen "whac-a-mole" game, there's just something about the Singleplayer that I loved about it. Well, part of it's because of the stealth level in the game, which rocked. I really liked the story, despite the fact that it's definitely not the best ever. I've never been one for deep storylines, though... What do you think?

I like the game, especially the multiplayer-part. The engine is quite good, looks nice and runs fluently with very fast mapload-times.

The engine is damn good because an average high ping player can still come along and I'm talking about 100+ ping. Not recommended but still. Plus weapons seem to be a bit better balanced after the patches. Only sometimes you can shoot right through people. I've seen some weird movies of snipers shooting somebody's head straight off but they didn't die. Same with other weapons. Another nice feature of the game is that the maps are good sized. Some maps work better with 20+ players while others (shipment, cargoship) work better with 10 players.

I love the game, and indeed agree that engine is brilliantly optimised. For the first time in a multiplayer game I find myself striving for an unlock without losing interest. [BF2...I'm looking at you.]

My system just passed the minimum requirements on requirements lab. I was worried that it wouldn't run so well, but I'm amazed how smooth it is, How good it looks & how fast everything loads unlike betafield 2 witch was rapidly uninstalled the day i got CoD4. As with every game there are things i don't like #1 - All the assault rifles sound pretty much the same. #2 - pressing forward makes you walk, You have to press/tap another key to run bah!. It would make more sense to always run and press the other key to walk, If you've played sof2 you'll know what i mean. I'm sure that could be done with scripts, but I'm no scripter. There are other minor things that get on my tits, but i wont witter on lol. Overall very good game :)

May I warn you for using scripts, some servers ban you right away when they detect a not listed cvar.

What annoys me a bit about this game is the community. Maybe that's just the case on German servers, but the servers seem to be crowded with kids who have nothing better to do than to insult people, accuse them of cheating and display how little they know about grammar. It's worse than the CounterStrike-community back when I played (4-5 years ago) it and I thought that was as bad as it could get.
