I’ve played some great FPS games. Great adventures in far away lands with fantastic weaponry.
Modern Warfare isn’t like that. It contains current generation weaponry, held by guys called with names like Gaz with London accents. It takes place in realistic locations and is actually quite straight-laced, in a time before COD got all spectacular and stupid. You don’t have a mech suit and you aren’t in space. It’s you, your comrades, and a lot of bad guys. Game on.
COD 4 constantly surprised me. No one was safe from a bullet as my team traveled the world. Then there’s the one-of-a-kind experience of ‘Ghillied Up’, which to this day is one of the single best levels I’ve played in any game. The pressure! The tension! Absolutely thrilling to play and a great balance of scripted events and feeling as though you’re in control.
I’d go on to enjoy other games with Captain Price that had even better online Multiplayer. But as a single player campaign Modern Warfare is COD at it’s best. At some point I’ll get hold of the HD version and play it again. I can’t abide new COD but I’ll always have a soft spot for this one.
