Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare


Just call it the anti-Crysis. If Crytek's immersive next-gen messiah is suppose to usher in a revolutionary era of open-ended shooters, Infinity Ward's Call of Duty 4 shows us why linear missions and wholly scripted gameplay aren't ready to be replaced...

Gritty war drama full of scripted spectacle and superb storytelling. Multiplayer's even better

Linear and short. Pushover AI hinders the immersion

From the American camp, we played as Sergeant Paul Jackson, keeping the peace in the Middle East after a recent uprising by the fundamentalist leader Al-Asad. Jackson's missions showcased the game's grand sense of scope and impressive attention to...

Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare (PlayStation 3)


It took awhile, but Infinity Ward finally got the message that World War II is played out. With modern times and international affairs becoming more and more, shall we say, interesting in recent years, the 1940s just don't carry as much weight as they...

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3


First and foremost, the reasons I bought this game was because Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 ended with a bit of a cliffhanger for me. Secondly, half of the mission got finished and Makarov still survived, which made me want to play this installment...

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Review


By sticking to the series' strengths, Modern Warfare 3 delivers some of the best competitive, cooperative, and single-player shooting in the business.

Climactic campaign ; Lots of varied and challenging Spec Ops action ; Exciting and entertaining competitive multiplayer ; Spec Ops profile spreads the satisfaction of leveling up

Multiplayer sticks closely to familiar formula

These tweaks alter the flow of rewards into your arsenal and onto the battlefield, but Modern Warfare 3 doesn't take any chances with the tried-and-true formula. You can make your own eccentric tweaks to the action with the robust Private Match...

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 - Defiance Review


Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3: Defiance is a competent though flawed handheld shooter.

Multiplayer is good fun, with rewarding progression ; Level design suits the small scale ; Touch-screen functions work well in conjunction with button controls

Stylus aiming controls have issues ; Poor checkpoint placement ; Occasional bugs

TheCall of Duty franchise is known for jaw-dropping set pieces, fast and frantic gunplay, and the most popular online multiplayer experience ever. The most recent installment, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, was heralded as the most anticipated release...

You know as well as I that next year will herald a new entry in the Call of Duty phenomenon, regular as clockwork. I, for one, am curious to see how the series develops... if it does at all. Will they throw something new into the mix or are they...

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3


Though the engine is beginning to show its age, Modern Warfare 3 sports an impressive amount of polish in both in visuals and its sound. Regardless of the few hiccups along the way, Modern Warfare 3's slick presentation does its job.

The trainer also gives you access to options like super speed and jump, which allows you to speed past some of the game's tougher sections if you feel like it.
