CoD4 has excellent graphics but when it comes to actual gameplay it's as old as the first CoD when you were killing nazis. Sure it's intense but the intensity comes from the fact that every house, shack, car, building, farm, abandoned outhouse is like a clown-car of enemies. They just KEEP COMING and hey I gotta say, in the original CoD and CoD2 I didn't really notice that but I think because for some reason Nazi's everywhere was ok to me. Also, half the time you could be a sniper and amazingly hey, I kill a nazi in a tower and he doesn't come back. When it comes to CoD4 "modern combat" people shouldn't just keep coming out of a house that you already killed 30 guys from. I mean seriously, they force you to be an assault guy with guns blazing to win, you can't be a sniper except for that lame ass sniping mission where one minute you're all stealthy, kill some guy and blow his arm off and the next oh hey....look guys everywhere OH and dogs....yay dogs....Plus multiplayer? Forget about it......Pre-made death animations and more 12 year olds than you'll find on World of Warcraft...yeah I'll skip.
Seriously? That was one of the coolest missions I've ever played in an fps.
Besides the fact that there are going to be 12 year olds playing every 360 fps, I don't get what you mean about the death animations.
