Call of Duty 4 takes it over the top.

The story has a lot more plot twists because this game was built from the ground up. The creators at Infinity Ward didn't have to break out the history books for this one. The campaign is immersive and it will have you right in the middle of it. You play through the eyes of two soldiers; a US Marine and a British S.A.S soldier each with their situations. I just have to say that the Sniper level was very well done and it definitely shows what the people at IW can do. The intensity of the single player campaign breaks the standards of how a game should feel and if they can keep this up then I'm looking forward to COD5.
The multiplayer for COD takes you up the ranks of a soldier starting you off as a Recruit to eventually work your way up to a Commander. One of the key things that make this so good is it actually feels like that. At first you're limited to what you can use and the combinations of perks that are available. The online is very deep and It keeps track of every little detail with a comprehensive leaderboard tracking system. I know a lot of people realized that there aren't any multiplayer achievements in the game, but that's for a good reason. As you work your way up the ranks you unlock new challenges that when they're completed give you bonus experience points. The more that you accomplish the faster you rank up and unlock those better weapons and perks. There's a lot of depth to this and gives you a lot of replayability. When you reach the highest rank you can do what is called the "Prestige Mode" and this resets your rank and shows everyone that you already achieved the highest there is. The gameplay for it is amazing, if you want to find out all the details you can check out my COD4 blog.
All in all this game sets a new standard for the way FPS should be made and this title is a definite buy so check out Call of Duty 4 on the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3.
