Call Of Duty 4, What A Surprise!

I find myself fighting through a town I couldn't get to in real life! That would be the town of Pripyat! I won't spoil the game for those that might be thinking about buying or renting it but I will tell you it is more difficult than previous Call of Duty games I've played. Maneuvering through the town was pretty cool. If I make it back to the meet scheduled for this year I wonder if they did a good enough job that I will feel a sense of Deja Vu? It was cool to fight there though!

Yea CoD4 is pretty amazing. Was the town, the sniper flashback? What console do you have it for?

I have it on PC. Awesome graphics. Great gameplay, maybe a bit over-dramatized and a tad short, but probably the best shooter in a long time.

Pripyat, the Ferris Wheel, the Claymores...

Now you have to play it on-line. That is where the fun begins.

I've tried on line play before and just can't get into it. It's like flight sims. Without that peripheral vision the whole thing loses a lot of its effect. Plus I like knowing who I'm playing with even if only for a few minutes. It helps to know the personality so you can estimate what they they will do.

Start your own clan. But I do know what you mean. It does offer a bit of veriety that you don't find in the singl player game.

So I take it you made it past the .50 sniper shot? You clear the extraction yet?

Nope and I'm getting my ass kicked. I did pick off one of the guys just exiting the helicopter on the rope, that was cool.

Yup. Finished all the levels. Trick to that, when you come off the rope, you will run and bear left. THere will be a small grassy area to your right. Kneel and take out a couple of troops and then shag ass through them, bearing to the right into an apartment bulding...

Yeah.. that's a bitch of a level. It took me 3 or 4 sessions to totally beat it; ~4 hours to beat it on Veteran. That level is probably one of the toughest I've ever played, on any game. Veteran took a whole lot of patience/determination..

If you want my advice on that level, it's the same that I gave to Vic. Pick off as many guys as you can from some cover near the Ferris Wheel. When that gets a little tough, move to the corner of the stage which faces the Wheel. You can use that for a while; it has some protection and good firing visibility. Lastly, when that gets a little tough; fall around to the back of the stage. You can pick guys off through the railing, and no baddies spawn in behind you; so you can focus on the front. (Be sure to listen though as a few dogs tend to sneak up on you back there.)

I found getting to the control room in the missile silo to be rather difficult. You find an easy way to do that one?

Hell, there's one level where I put a claymore in front of their "dog house." I got tired of them ripping my throat out.

THe control room is another exercise in patience. Pick up a shotgun and keep reloading. Frags are my friend.

The sniper shot was a pain in the ass. Took my almost 50 attempts before I got it right. Great game.

Hmmm... I've heard that a lot. On my first run through (on Normal), I got it the first try. When I tried it in Veteran however, it took me 10-20 tries.

My brother got a 360 and Call of Duty 4 for Christmas. I played it a bit and the graphics are awesome, the story is good too. I love the part where you carry the top half of the Major around, very realistic.

He's already finished it on easy though.

The scenery in the Chernobyl level is pretty amazing, they even modeled in that famous empty swimming pool and stuff like that.

COD4 is alot harder than 2 or 3 no question. I'm on the level where you have to take out the 4 tanks then run back down the hill to get to the LZ in time. Damn hard level.

Hell yeah, that for me was the hardest part in the game!

On easy mode it was almost too easy, on Veteran its certainly not as easy!!!

I made it on the first attempt, just have to anticipate when the flag is going to die down.

I finished it last night. It was kind of short compared to the ones before. On top of that they had 3 stories running concurrently before, this time only two and they killed off one of those. Maybe because of the graphics efforts? The first encounter reminded me too much of a SOCAL game, almost a copy in fact. I'm going to give it a whack on veteran in a few days to make it a bit harder since my memory is still fresh. The hardest part I had was the extraction scene in Pripyat, I lost count at how many tries it took. I kept getting myself picked off from behind.

After you set Mac down next to the tree and you get his Claymores, shag ass and place them along the likely approaches. I get back and get about 10 meters from Mac on the small rise. The BG's won't come in behind you, but you have to watch your right flank.

If it wasn't from the dodgem cars it was directly across the Ferris wheel. I finally went to the dodgems and hid out behind the cars while picking off the advancing bad guys with enfilade fire. When the extraction chopper set down I retrieved the captian and hoofed it around the Ferris wheel and into the chopper.

The other thing about the claymores, on the way to the pick up the cpt had you place a claymore in front of a door, just before the encounter with the helicopter. Claymores were not designed for inside use. The back blast at close range can kill. My training with claymores was that they were to be used when you were pretty sure you would have a group of enemy in the kill zone. Hence at the pick point, placing them in the obvious lanes of advance is a good idea, but if only one soldier is in the kill zone when it remotely goes off, it's a pretty big waste of explosive.

42 Miamiair : Why does it take so long for a match to get started? Is there any way to speed up the process?

44 Miamiair : It was. The online games are pure gas. Screwed up thing is when you run into a clan with comms; I got wasted at least 20 times. Must get the Bluetooth
