"Most Good"
4 stars"

One of the few games I've enjoyed in the past few years. Pretty good single player campaign that leads inevitably to a multiplayer mode that is great! The speed at which the pace can change is quite impressive and leads to some pretty thrilling clashes and frags. Scenery is nice and varied throughout the levels and offer places for every player type and style (complete with tents and sleeping bags for the snipers ;D ). There's a huge number of weapons an gadgets to mess with and blast people to bits accordingly all of which have a use. Then there's the perks system which allows one to tailor advantages for their specific player types.

One thing that has always bugged me however is the engine itself. For some reason its been clunky and flaky on all machines I've played it on including a Phenom box and an Intel quad with a GTX275. That said, this one little niggle is well worth working through for the rewarding gameplay and entertaining blats on multplayer.

"Huge Surprise"
5 stars"

I wasn't a big fan of the CoD franchise. However, when I got this game, all that changed. It immediately became one of my favorite games.

The graphix is incredible, yet amazingly, it doesn't require a very high-spec rig to run it. Game play is realistic, story mode is fantastic, and the different modes online promises hours and hours of fun!

The fact that despite CoD5 is out, and there're still around 15,000 servers online everyday shows the popularity of the game, and the quality of the gameplay.

It's certainly worth every cent of the $100!!

"An epic game on every level."
5 stars"

if you play only one war themed fps, make it this one… the single player game is pretty short, but it makes up for it with unbelievably intense situations, an interesting story, and amazing levels of immersiveness – and the ending… wow, i wont give it away, but what a heart ripping and amazing conclusion, this really is one of the best games of the year…

…and thats just based on the gameplay and story alone. You also get some of the best high end visuals and art design you will have ever seen, brilliant and powerful sound and voice performances, and fun multiplayer as well… but overall, its the immersiveness that i keep coming back to… you really feel like your part of an important and epic situation, something you really need to experience for yourself, the emotion and excitement you get from this game, rival the best from any entertainment medium, game or movie.

The game runs very well. Its not as visually impressive as crysis (but, really, what is?) but it is still an absolute visual feast, and it still manages to run at a very respectable fps.

No game this year has impressed me this much… The combat sequences are so mind blowing, that ive replayed several of them just to record them with fraps to share on youtube, they were that thrilling…

Im giving this 5 stars… I dont usually like to give perfect scores, but i feel 4 is a bit too low for what really is a game that is faultless in its execution. I can honestly say you will not be let down by this game. Oh, and when youve finished it, make sure you stick around till after the credits :)

"Generally perfect"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

A lot of people seem to be complaining that this game is too short, but they need to realise that quality always comes at the cost of quantity. High end games are getting harder and harder to make these days because our expectations of the graphics, game play and depth are getting so much higher – but we expect to pay the same amount that we did for games that were relatively easy to make ten years ago.

Pull your heads out of the sand people. Games are going to get shorter if we keep expecting developers to increase the quality. They need to hire more people, spend longer making the games (including night shifts) and spend far more money than in the past. I for one am impressed that Infinity Ward managed to fit as much content in as they did. This was one of the best $100 I've spent.

"Intense!"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

As many people have said, the single player mode is quite short (5–6hours unless you choose harder difficulty), but it will be one of the most intense and great War-FPS single player experience ever.

Story is not something new, but the way they present the story made the game outstanding. There are many amazing moments in the game. The game also has great voice acting (Personally I like S.A.S (UK) voice acting more then U.S army). Sound effects and musics are great too.

You can probably finish single player surprisingly fast. However multiplayer mode is equally great. You can level-up your chracter to obtain new perks such as ‘Last Stand’, which let you fire several shots before dying after you are shot down. You can unlock more weapons and weapon customisations as you level-up, also when you make multiple kills in a row you can call for an air support (also let you use enemy detecting rader). It's very addicting.

I would recommend this game for both single player and multi player fans. Single player is short but definitly worth it. Multiplay is fun, and will last hours and hours. You can't go wrong with this one. Four and half star!

"Not as it seems"
4 stars"

While the graphics of the game is good, the single player AI is useless as it is in previous Call of Duty games. Now what I mean by that is that, lets say you decide to have the game on hard difficulty, then all of a sudden (even when out of enemy sight) you'll find yourself dodging about 10 grenades which are ALL aimed at you! This is a typical poor AI plot which has annoyed me in every single Call of Duty game and it can get quite annoying.

Otherwise the game is quite fun, and you'll find yourself playing certain missions over again for the intense rush!
