If you've been a gamer for any length of time, or even not, you're aware of the Call of Duty series of games. Currently the top of the first-person shooter wargame genre, it took over the lead a scant few years ago in a genre so overused that it's been the target of plenty of well-meaning jibes.

Of course, no series is without its ups and downs. The first was ample to take the crown, 2 was an incredible refinement, 3 was something of a letdown (many gamers thought it was simply a retread of existing material without adding much), and Call of Duty 4 got away from the World War II setting completely, jumping in with both feet to move the focus from the single-player to multiplayer setting and setting the stage, based on some earlier titles that had only experimented with the concept, for full-fledged "advancement" of multiplayer options and abilities without the need for a full MMORPG setup.

The offer is good, but not quite as good as Modern Warfare; there are a number of reasons to say this, even as it's equally fair to say that it's a solid game on its own merits.
