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!

Quoting Miamiair (Reply 3): 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.
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...

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.
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.)

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.
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.

Well no kidding, but the claymores are one shot deals.

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.
