I can only describe the single player demo with one word....FANTASTIC. The effects, detail, dialogue, and expansion bring the first person shooter genre to a whole new level. If only a multiplayer beta was released...


Anyways, I finished the demo in a little under 20 minutes on easy (yeah, I suck) but every second was pure 100% entertainment. The updated method of saving is quite relieving, opposed to the spend-2 hours-replaying-an-entire-mission-over-because-of-one-f88king-death crap in previous COD titles.


So what are your thoughts?


A+

I'm so glad they made a modern warfare game. I killed enough Nazi's that I think the Devil is trying to hire me for a job.

The level was so short. I can't give a real evaluation but from what I did play from the single player demo...

I give it a 3 out 5 stars

The game has nothing out of the ordinary. Control scheme is same old. Graphics are sub-par compared to modern games based on Unreal Engine. You complete objectives and that's it. You don't even have to kill your enemies. Finished the demo in 4 minutes that took me 6 hours to download.

One thing good about this game is that it runs good even on a mediocre card.

Perhaps my enthusiasm is the result of having barely any exposure to first person shooters. I've only played battlefield, halo, a few COD demos, beginning of Far Cry, and the abomination that is Black.


*sigh*

The game play ok but I personally think Bioshock look a heck lot better than Call fo Duty 4 and Bioshock play pretty damn well as well.

I think the game is pretty good myself. It's cool that my ATI 9800 Pro plays it pretty well (for being an almost 8yr old card) can't wait till I upgrade to a better video card so I can turn up all the eye candy. But it seems to be a pretty solid demo and I can't wait till the full thing comes out.

It's nice to find a pretty modern FPS also I've grown tired of the whole WWI/WWII type FPS (altho I still play them) and most of the newer modern games didn't tickle my fancy (but I did like Full Spectrum Warrior)

The graphics are really good but I'm hoping that they will be better in the final version then the xbox 360 at least from the gameplay videos I've seen. I think the demo only lets one go high but not really high settings kinda like Crysis. My average frame rate (8800GTX) at 14400x900 at full available graphics was between 80-100.

Did you try the demo? This game actually looks worse than COD 2 that was 3 years old.

I have the textures all the way maxxed. It's not high settings but extra high. The graphics are somewhere in the line of quake 3. This proprietary engine is crap or in the beginning stages of a brand new engine.

Where is Carmack's new engine?

its prolly cause you have a 8500gts, which for some strange reason you think is a better gaming card than the 1950 pro.

Meh, it was alright. I played maximum graphics and they were pretty good. Not amazing, but pretty good. I'm way more interested in multiplayer however. I just want it to be competitive like vcod and cod2.

I have 8600gts not 8500gts. There is no such thing as 8500gts.

I think they're comparable speed wise. Image quality wise Geforce 8 owns all radeon right now.

Have you seen geforce 8 series in action or the graphics quality of it? Maybe you need to go try it out before you judge.

I had no speed issues what so ever with this game. Everything cranked up at my LCD native resolution which is only 1440x900. Getting around 60fps.

I have a GTX, I run everything in 1920 (24" LCD native res.)
It's nothing different from my former X1900 when it comes to picture quality.

The game looks sounds and plays amazing. The only thing I don't like is the guys voice over the radio... why did they make him sound like that? If they were trying to make him sound like tough commander over the radio, they failed. he sounds like a 60 year old person who smokes 4 packs a day.

It ran like silk...too bad the gameplay was in no way beyond CoD2. The audio was awesome as always.

WTF are you talking about?? Worse than COD2? Quake3 engine graphics??

Either you need to visit the eye doctor or stop drinking so much before you play.

I've been playing cod2 for years and COD 4's graphics are far better than that game.

:confused:

I don't know it just doesn't look that great to me. Textures look good from far away as you get close it doesn't look as great.

I don't drink and game. It's a bad combination at least I don't like drinking and gaming.

Full Spectrum Warrior almost looks better then this game. :(


I cranked all the textures to max, the AA to max, the anistropy to max, even with the resolution at max (1680x1050, doesn't quite run at a slideshow, but it damn sure ain't fast), it still doesn't look that great. The water wasn't very impressive, either. Has some nice bloom and motion blur, though.

And why can nobody make grass that moves when a helicopter is hovering 8 feet above it?
