A great game with memorable challenges and a unique flavor.

The singleplayer experience in CoD4 is unrivaled. The general pace of the action never lets up. One thing to make sure of is that your difficulty is set high enough, if it's too low you'll just get bored. The standard missions are excitng and well paced, with a few sequences breaking up the action. Getting to man the weapons on an AC-130 Spectre gunship is an incredibly fun time, and the stealth mission is definitely the best. The feeling of tension simply can't be beat.
The multiplayer of Call of Duty 4 seems on the surface simple. However, when you play it longer you realize how good it is. The drive to unlock challenges and rank up is incredible, and the competitiveness of the game is intense. The rewards of hard work are many, from better weapon sights to the oh so beautiful golden camouflage. The polish that's gone into the MP aspect of the game is simply undeniable. The variability in gametypes, from Hardcore to Old School, with all the standards back, you're sure to find something you'll love in this multiplayer experience.
