I recently repurchased Call of Duty 4 as I had to sacrifice my original to purchase Resident Evil 5. With all the hype at E3 regarding the game’s sequel, Modern Warfare 2, I thought now would be a good time to revisit CoD4.
After playing this game nightly for the first two months after its release I essentially stopped playing the game for a year and a half, The only time I did play it was when I bought the map back at a reduced price so I could have a look at them. The game nearly two years later is still a stunning piece of gaming, though I did find the game to feel dated with its patented CoD enemy spawns from hell. I really hope that they correct this in the next iteration. Still, the game is a must play and does garner repeat playthroughs. I did finish the campaign once again this evening, but with Call of Duty, you stay for the multiplayer.
I started to lose interest in the CoD4 multiplayer around the time I completed most of the challenges. I was sitting on level 52 or so when I decided to play this multiplayer again once more. I powered my way through the last few levels up to 55 and flipped the switch on Prestige so I could once again climb the ladder. I have a goal of hitting level 55 once again (at least) before Modern Warfare 2 arrives this Fall.
So if you want to join me for some hot FPS action this Summer, look for me in the CoD4 multiplayer!
