Let's start with the game play. Modern Warfare combines a near perfect blend of single player and multiplayer. The single player takes you on an amazing, albeit short ride, that takes you from Russia to an unnamed country, combining all out shooting, to stealth elements, this game has everything a shooter fan could want. The AI is great, and actually helps you, unlike many other games where they just get into your way. And it's not some super hero soldier story either, some characters don't make it out of this game, and the ending is sad and shows you the true toll of war. This game starts off with a bang that doesn't go out until after you beat it. There is a downside, this game will only take you about 5 or 6 hours to beat, but has a high replay value, so it's not all bad. But with such a short single player, how does this game last you a long time?
The answer is the multiplayer. One that if you get into can last hundreds of hours. This is probably the best part of Modern Warfare. And is one of the deepest and greatest multiplayer modes of all time. There are about 10 modes to play in here, and almost 20 levels to play them in. All of these maps are very good, and balanced. There is a ranking system, and as you promote, you unlock everything from different modes to play in, to new weapons. There are tons of challenges that if completed, give you camouflages for your guns as well as scopes. But probably best of all are the perks, in this game, you pick three perks for your class, everything from longer sprinting distance to increased bullet damage, to last stand, a perk where if your shot down, you can sit back up, pull out your pistol and try to take your enemy with you. These perks add to the game play, and that's saying something when it's already this good.
The icing on the cake that is Modern Warfare are the graphics. The graphics in this game are amazing. Everything from particle effects to explosions to a blur effect when aiming down the sights in your gun, this game looks fantastic. If I had one complaint it would be the character models, sometimes they don't look as amazing as the rest of the game, but that's a weak complaint when you get into this world because of amazing graphics and effects.
Finally, we have the sound. There aren't many memorable songs in this game, but they blend well with the situation you are in. This is probably the weakest part of this game, but I'm not saying it's bad. No, this game has great weapon noises form gunshots to grenades, this game does have amazing sound, it's just with a package so good, great sound is the worst part of it.
In conclusion, Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare is simply amazing. When it comes down to it, you can't get a more perfect blend of single and multiplayer components. The single player is amazing, the multiplayer is amazing, the graphics are amazing, and the sound is amazing. This is simply an amazing game; from start to finish the single player is as intense as all the other Call of Duty's, and then some. Fun, intense, sad, funny, amazing, classic. They don't make games like this anymore,actually, they never have.
