Small error, you can indeed use the mouse wheel - just need to set it within the controls!

Man, it looks like you're right. I did look at the controls, but I guess I missed that bit. My bad - will edit the article now.

Game of the year imo, pure FPS perfection.

I'm surprised you didn't mention how short the single player campaign is as that would be my main criticism of the game.

Good review.

some added points, once you finish the SP (no mention on how short it is, it only took me about 5 hrs to finish) Arcade mode is unlocked which is good for some fun, and you can pick the missions that were good C-130 Baby! and skip the ones that you didn't enjoy at all like crawling through the grass with guys all around you

Over all, it had a good storyline in the single player killing the main character?!? that sucked :p

The multiplayer is extremely fast paced, even on large maps, and unlike earlier games in the series, if you get shot a couple times in the chest, you're on the ground; considering that pretty much every gun is either semi or full auto, that can be pretty quick. :p

Hardcore mode in MP rules, no HUD and extra damage from the guns, a built in realism mod pretty much.

I'd say the FPS gamer community will be extremely happy with this game, especially given the piece of crap mohab was. This game is also very good for competitative play; like Joe said, the maps lead to actual tactics rather than run-and-gun and spray-and-pray.

The perks are a good addition, especially claymores and last stand...and with out a doubt deep penetration, shooting through walls is fun.

The guns are all relatively well balanced while staying realistic, i've read some complaints from other reviewers but personally they don't know what they're talking about and obviously haven't shot the gun(s) in question, of course neither have I for most of them but you get my point. :p The assault and smg guns really need to be scoped and shot in small bursts to keep control of them else they'll shoot all over the place. Shooting from the hip is good in a sticky situation but I don't like it personally.

Overall i'm loving the game and it's worth the $50

allso the load times for the game, what load times

this is the only game that i know of that can load to main menu in 2-3 secs (when when thay Frigin Fix the server connection bugs) i can be in game withn 5 secs (useing Xfire join player)

thay realy need to bring an fix out for server connection time outs as its Very anoying when your trying to join an friend who is on an server, allso there is no way for an norm user to stop the server connect (press ` then disconnect press tab press enter for console users)

Thats true, the connection bug is annoying sometimes. Also find that x-fire can screw up the connection.

One little tweak you can try is (i think) sv_connection 30, not positive since I don't have the game in front of me but the command will increase the connection timeout from 11s to 30s

Nide review. Is there much of a story? I remember enjoying the SP missions on the previous CoDs, but there wasn't really much progression/anything new, even with the different countries. I always ended up using the MP40, because there was so much ammo for it!

Whilst obeying your instructions and staring at the model detail shots, it looked like the character was floating about 10cm of the ground:). Is this just a one off, or does that often happen? Maybe its just the shadows, I don't know... It would be quite cool to have a hover mode, but maybe that is too futuristic!

Stunning game, I have been playing the demo and it is great. Definately will buy it. If only I had an 8800GT...

I have been playing this since Friday and have now completed it on all difficulty levels, and I'm ready ready to run through it all again.

This game is such a great departure from the WWII period. It's nice to see such attention to detail being brought into a modern day shooter. The missions are exciting and varied, like the review states they are mature and gritty.

Graphically this game is stunning as well, it's a great demonstration of DX9 in all it's glory. The textures in so many parts of the game are just breath taking, I died on so many occasions because I just stood looking at the world and character details.

Cut sequences really help set the scene, and I found them to be well scripted.

The biggest drawback is the length of the game, however on completion LET THE CREDITS ROLE & DON'T GO ANYWHERE!!

YOU AIN'T FINISHED YET :)

Very good review, I loved the comparison shots of the different settings. Something that is seldom done these days.

I love that tiny tiny square map with all the containers in it.. :D

Also, the game runs beautifully (maxed) on just a 7900GS and 2Ghz C2 with 2Gbs of RAM, seems they optimized the engine very well

Is there any VOIP in the MP? Squad based preferably!
Hells_Bliss 14th November 2007, 05:16 Quote
yes, but i've not found many servers that have it turned on yet. Also, there's a perk where you can listen into enemy's voip comms :p

Those of you with dual core processors will be able to tell me this, does this game use both cores, or just one? I only ask because the specs for the game recommend a dual core processor.

I'm so jealous! I can't run this on my current rig. Got to wait until January/February before I can build my new one! :(

Can't wait!

Im off to the shop to buy this now. Don't think i'll get much work done today.
leexgx 14th November 2007, 14:27 Quote
as there is no friend list support (unlike the xbox360 ver) no one is going to use it as most use Xfire / TS, so the Perk for voip is mostly useless on the pc ver of COD4

Server list sucks allot

any one with problems with connecting to an server mite want to try forwarding port 28960 (UDP/TCP) i found allot of servers time out with out it, but it should not be necessary to join an server

I know the review said this game was highly scalable with regards to its graphical settings but does anyone know if it can run with an X800 Pro (Pixel Shader 2 I think and about 3 or 4 yrs old)?
