Ok for a start, very few people play rainbow 6 games coz they are too technical, call of duty has always been about running and gunning, thats y it sells so well, and thats y it kicks rainbow 6 and all the other variations, through the unbreakable glass, 40 storeys down, onto the pavement, face first. cod 4 is better purely coz its easier to play and nowhere near as complex. people buy what they like to play, not what they're supposed to play.

but this is all peoples opinion so i dont no y we're even having this discussion

Iced Earth

try to please stop starting arguments, its not worth the game time to even look at, the only reason im saying this is coz some1 needs to say it. no-one cares what u think

This is his thread, he can say whatever he wants. If you dont like it, then you dont need to post a reply. Just because he's not into COD4 as much as you doesnt make him a bad person. Lay off the noob sauce and relax.

LMAO the guns sound and feel realistic? Come on man. I mean seriously now.

The game is good, fun, it has DECENT graphics, multiplayer is fun. It runs good. It's fun to kill & knife people.

The graphics aren't that freekin great... How do I know this? Because my pc maxxes out the frame rates no matter the resolution & AA...

I could throw up some high res wallpaper on my desktop and say my PC has great graphics... Thats about the sum of COD4. It's not uber optimized, there's absolutely zero atmosphere.

The netcoding isn't that great, they cut corners. All bullets aren't accounted for, people facing the wrong way as bullets come out the sides and litterally from the backs of their heads as you think you are sneaking up. Hell, you can't even tell you're being shot at half the time.

Ohh, and as for team play? Squad play? Doesn't exist. The other players on your team may as well be bots.

Don't even get me started about shooting through steel and 12" thick concrete... Whats the point of taking cover?

I like the game, but the children need to just recognize the fact that this is just not the best there ever was.

Stop bringing up Crysis in every damn thread about another game.

"How is COD4?" "It's great, and Crysis sucks." I mean, what the hell is that?????

The SP is short enough that it's almost like an extended training guide. It's a good place to learn the game mechanics before jumping into the MP, where the greatness really shows. I honestly think this game is a lot more fun then CS:S or Crysis (SP). Crysis does beat CoD4 in just single player gameplay though.

While I agree that the SP isn't the best out there, I still think it's very, very good. The one word I can use to describe it is "epic". SO much happens in those 6 hours, I forget that it's so short.

Hey, for a lousy $50 I think if you get a few good weeks out of a game before you get bored with it, you have found a decent bargain. I got Crysis for free with my video card and was rather disappointed, but what the hell, IT WAS FREE.

There could be a brick sticking out and it would still stop you dead in your tracks.
If you run into a bricking sticking out of the wall and you get stuck, then the physics engine is awesome

Precisely, that is all I'm saying. I started a thread asking why people thought COD4 was good, i just wanted to know why people rated the game so highly because i was struggling to find the answer on my own.

When did people on this forum become so god damn rude and arrogant.

I ain't trying to start arguments, i merely asked a question. I have stated in every damn post i have made that i think the game is GOOD. I'm done explaining to you arrogant ****s that i just think this game is mediocre and wanted to know what everyone else thought.

F*** it, screw most of you, i remember when this Forum used to be awesome. Full of nice people who you could actually criticize a game and get a decent answer back as to why their opinion is worth something and why they think a game is good/bad.

Sorry i don't agree with the masses but hey, sometimes it happens. Don't mean you need to jump on my head.
