CoD4 is disappointing

post #1 of 49
Thread Starter 
This is my rant of why I am heavily disappointed with Call of Duty 4: Modern Combat...

I played the demo, thought it was fun then, but waited quite a while to actually pick it up (which I finally did today). While in best buy I was torn between Crysis (which I loved the demo of) or CoD4. I chose CoD4 for what I was expecting to be a somewhat fun single player campaign and what seems to be awesome online play.

I played for quite a few hours tonight, I believe I am at or close to the last level (I'm on the level right after the sniper flashback level). Overall I'm really disappointed in single player. It's just nothing but the same old stuff. Same CoD with a new pair of clothes. I swear this game hasn't changed since the original came out. Graphics have improved, SOME additions have been added, but it's seriously unchanged. I know the saying "don't fix it if it isn't broken" but at least ADD some new stuff. I'm playing on hardened so I have had many times of dying in a blaze of bullets and having to restart from some annoyingly far back save.

I'm listing my complaints as follows, flame to death or agree, I'm just ranting.

1. The enemies are insanely accurate, and half the time you can't even see where they are firing from; it's just a blur of flashing and read on your screen and that annoying heartbeat/wheezing sound.

2. There is no fire mode selector on ANY of the weapons. I'm sorry but the m16 does not fire full auto, and I would like my m4 to be semi auto at times please.

3. Weapons sounds-you'd think a company as experienced as infinity ward could at least get the sounds right...As far as the javelin and the rpg go I have no idea what they sound like in real life. But the m16, the m4, the SAW...they all just sound so fake and inaccurate; it annoys me.

4. Lack of non linear play. I know it's call of duty, and call of duty is notoriously linear; but I guess I was just hoping for some more options this time around. At least go path "A" "B" or "C," not just GO PATH A NOWKTHNXBYE.

5. CLOSED DOORS EVERYWHERE. I'm sorry but this drives me nuts, I have a gun, I have grenades, I have big fat army boots, if I wanted in a door I could get into it without a lot of trouble. Please just let me open doors where and when I want.


Those are my major complaints with the game. It's a good game, don't get me wrong there. It's graphics are great, the story line seems decent for a call of duty series, and it's fun when you aren't dying every five seconds and not knowing where exactly you got shot from.

The one thing I have LOVED about this game is the vehicle portions. Before I hated the vehicle portions in CoD games, but the Spectre Gunship part was absolutely awesome, my favorite part of the game by far. And being on the Mark 19 on the black hawk was also awesome.

That is all.

i agree with ya tbh. it's a really fun game but imo they're losing the plot.

also, i don't like the way they always tell you where the enemy is... makes it a touch too easy

To each his own I guess.. I thought COD4s single player was really really fun, but short.

Tried the multiplayer....and I can definitely say it is worth the purchase for that.
Hopefully it doesn't get old too fast...seems like it may after a short stint.



There's my first go at the multi in CoD4...I think I managed all right.

That's odd. I found the SP portion of CoD4 to be almost flawless as well. The "All Ghillied Up" mission and "Warpig" were both so intense and fun.

It was short yes, but I'd rather creators made fun short games than crap long ones.

Its modern warefare and I agree the linear play feels restricting but the style of the game means this shouldnt realy matter as your not rambo... I understand your points but tbh they dont bother me its still a great game.

there are two types of games games made for single player and games made for multi online play, cod4 is an online based game i like the game sounds and i dont get any fuzy stuff or anoying when shooting aiming or beinh shot at when in single player try not to be sutch a hard level then u wont die all the time i was on easy maanged to get to end of ACT 2 before dieing, online WOW the only thing i dont like about this game obnline is you cant change your custom kits in game and theres not enough custom slots also the spawn points get anoying after a while every over game the oposite team or my team seem to have a advantage on spawning closer need to be more fairer and not seeing where you got shot from they fixed that with the updates hellped alot but is also a pain in the but if er sniping

EDIT
wops didnt see where this was posted i use the ps3 version not pc version never played pc one i use on a hd monitor on a 5.1 system guns sound gd on there dono about pc one

Your 5 points go from the game being to real to fake..lol. I thought the single player was amazing. I haven't enjoyed a single player mode in a game in a long time. I mostly do multiplayer.
