Why I feel that Call of Duty 4 Modern Warfare is the greatest FPS ever made.

Call of Duty 4' single player is easily one of the best single player games of all time. Yes the game is beatable in just under seven hours on the easier settings, but if you go on and keep playing you wont be sorry. I could see myself playing thorugh this game more than a GTA game, mainly because of all the paths that you can take throughout the levels. About halfway through the game there is a mission called "Ghullies in the Mist", this mission puts you in post-Chernobyl Russia, with you and your commanding officer quietly crawling your way through the countryside, with nothing but a sniper rifle and a Ghuillie suit. The two missions that comprise this section of the game are hands down the greatest missions in the game. They may just the two most exciting and thrilling moments to ever take place in gaming. If there was ever a time that you felt like you were in the game, it is definately in this section of the game, and is hands down the most immersed I've felt in a game in a long long time. Sure the tactics are not super important in this game, but thats what Ghost Recon is for.
Call of Duty 4 may just have the best graphics that I have ever seen in a game. On a regular TV Call of Duty 4 looks absolutely amazing. It might just be one of the best looking games ever made. However then plug your Xbox into an HD TV and throw it into 1080 and it is without a doubt the greatest looking game ever made and it will hold that title for a very very long time. I seriously had to stop in the middle of an intense multiplayer battle to look at a car that was on fire, and I seriously wondered, is this real? Of course then I got mowed down but that is beside the point. If you dont have an HDTV you are still getting some pretty high end graphics, but if you have an HDTV then you will be in graphics heaven and you will probably be never too look at an older game ever again.
The multiplayer aspect of the game is perfect in every way shape and form. There are no achievements for it, but that does not matter (this surprised me quite a bit since I am addicted to them). Building your character and moving up in the rankings and unlocking challenges is easily one of the most rewarding things I have ever seen in a game. The multiplayer maps are perfect, and there is not one that I do not like. There is a large amount of weapons and there are hundreds of upgrades to them. PLus the player environment is spectacular. No little pre teens with squeaky voices talking crap about everybody, on that note I dont think I have ever been on a server where I ever heard anything that anyone would find offensive, which is nice because sometimes you just want to play the game and not listen to the stupid useless banter that goes on between fellow players.
Call of Duty 4 is in my humble opinion the best game on the Xbox 360. The multiplayer and single player are some of the best that I have ever seen in the first person shooter genre. If you are a fan of modern war shooters and you have an Xbox 360 Call of Duty 4 and Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter are the two games that you will need to be satisfied. Its addicting and fun. Pick this game up and you will not be disappointed
