Ratings for Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare

Rating Description
Presentation If this is war, consider me a future draft-dodger.
Graphics From top to bottom, one of the best-looking console games around.
Sound The explosions will shake you; the constant sounds of gunfire will put you on edge. The end song is an added bonus and properly immortalizes the unfortunate phrase, "Go deep and hard."
Gameplay An excellent shooter that is as intense an experience as you can find in gaming. The multiplayer is also top-notch.
Lasting Appeal The single-player experience is brief, but there are many other things that will hold your attention once the campaign is complete.
