It was good to see a francise move off of World War II.

Now onto the Multiplayer. This is the part of the game in which Infinity Ward changed too much. They took out the vehicles. Why on this one? By taking them out they went back in time not ahead. By taking them out they also placed themselves as just another FPS online shooter. Yes before I forget they do have Perks. These are a good addition to the online experience but the Perks in my opinion are not a good justification to replace vehicles. They went one step forward with Perks but two step back when they left the vehilces out. The Multiplayer was okay, not as suprising as the single player was. You can call in a UAV, an Airstrike, and a Helo. It's kinda been done before and has been done better. The Multiplayer of COD 4 is as about as stale as another World War II FPS.
Now onto sound. The voice acting was almost Hollywood quality. They fit were they were supose to fit and not over do it or under do it. Just right as Goldie Lox said, this is just right. Now the weapons on the other hand sounded to be under the bar. The weapons in COD 3 had a more realistic sounds then COD4 does. The grenade bouncing sounds were quite unrealistic. Sounded too "Pingy" but at least you knew when one was by you. There is one game that has Modern Warfare that has much better sounds and that is Battlefield Bad Company. Now that is what they are supose to sound like. COD 4 comes up shooting blank in this department.
Now onto graphics. I have to say this is where COD 4 shines. Very good tectures and lighting. The reason I say this is because of the demands of modern day game requirements. COD 4 does not need very much to make it shine. You guys at Infinity Ward get a smiliy face from Wal-Mart for this one. There were a few things that didn't seemed to be added and they were the Rag Time, Photo Negitive cheats. The Rag Time was neat at first but soon grew very old like the silent films. The Photo Negitive was very negitive. Couldn't see 5 feet in front of you. At lest you don't have to play with these on.
The bottom line. This is a great single player experience with a few hic-ups. A run of the mill multiplayer experience. Great graphics with low requirements. Sound good at times but leaves you wishing more could have been done. In my opinion this title is not worth the full retail price. I got COD4 as a gift. I would suggest you do the same or wait til it comes down in price. With up coming titles like Frontlines and Battlefield Bad Company. COD 4 may get their butts kicked. Both of these titles have what COD 4 has to offer and they seem to be done it better than COD 4. Rent COD 4 first. I can reasure you that you can beat this game in a rental if you have a 360.
