Activision Call Of Duty 4: Modern Warfare
- Graphics are outstanding. Visually one of the best Xbox 360 games around. Single-player campaign is deep and satisfying. Concerns about the mode's length are assuaged by its overall quality. Multiplayer component offers a wealth of features. It should prove to be outstanding once the servers become fully populated. The move to a modernised setting makes the franchise relevant again.
- We couldn't find anything. Seriously, we tried to find something wrong with this game but we couldn't. But if we do, we'll let you know.
We seriously cannot think of a single flaw in CoD4, and trust us, we looked for them. From the amazing graphics to the intense and compelling single-player campaign to the feature loaded and addictive multiplayer, this game has it all. The holiday season will be jammed pack with quality triple-A titles but this is one title we personally recommend you put at the top of your wishlist.
Price$ 109.95 (AUD)
Infinity Ward brings the critically acclaimed Call of Duty franchise out of the World War II trenches with a modernised update that does just about everything right! Get ready to enter the fray with our review of Call of Duty 4!
War truly is hell. Anyone who has experienced military conflict firsthand can tell you that. Thankfully, most of us have never had to crawl in the muck of a battlefield or exchange gunfire with an enemy; it is an experience that few of us could handle, both physically and psychologically.
There are countless numbers of books, movies and video games that allow us to experience the horrors of war from the safety of our living rooms. Done right, these fictional depictions not only showcase everything that is good about war -- the camaraderie that exists between soldiers and their selfless heroism, for example -- but they also serve as a powerful reminder of just how damaging and terrible war can be.
No developer has had more success in recreating the tension and terror of a battlefield than Infinity Ward. Its founding members helped define the World War II genre with the groundbreaking Medal of Honor: Allied Assault while the first title developed under the Infinity Ward label, Call of Duty, cemented their reputation as one of the most skilled and talented development houses around.
After three titles set in the war torn battlefields of the past, Infinity Ward is taking a decidedly modern approach with Call of Duty 4.
So what is it about Call of Duty 4 that makes it stand out from the rest of the pack? For starters, the intense single-player campaign offers up an action packed experience that features a tremendously compelling narrative; there are moments in the game that will send chills down your spine.
Then you add in the amazingly deep multiplayer that rivals Halo 3's in terms of reach and scope. Suffice it to say, if you are an online shooter junkie, Christmas has come early for you this year.
So click through to the next page and get ready to read our detailed field report on the latest instalment in what has quickly become the premiere war franchise in all of gaming!

GGG Evaluation Team
First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.
For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.
The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.
My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
