UPDATE: 7 Days of Modern Warfare.

Day 1 : http://www.gametrailers.com/player/27313.html

New thread, I cant wait for this game. Thanks to Artreus for the op.

This game is freaking fantastic. It is taking a bit of a break from tradition and is being set, not in World War II, but in the present day. Crazy Russian nationalist wants to bring the Soviet Union back. He does this by funding a coup type activity in the Middle East.

* Sergeant Paul Jackson, 1st Battalion, 7th Marine Regiment (later Sergeant as part of 1st Force Recon Co., U.S.M.C.) (present)

With various short stints as other characters from time to time.

* Double Tap(increases your weapon's rate of fire)

Perk 3:

* Steady Aim(Steadier aiming)
* Last Stand(Shoot your pistol while dying)
* Deep Impact(Better bullet penetration through walls)
* Dead Silence(Less noise when running)
* Iron Lungs(Hold breath longer when sniping)

    No PC love? You make us(me) cry. Not to say that either version is better or to bring up the PC vs Console dead horse... PC, Xbox 360, PS3 and NDS all have versions of the game. I hope to see others with the PC version but it doesn't ship out until 5 November.

    Really? Because I just played the crysis demo and can't say it was all that special. I mean sure, it was Far Cry 2.0 WITHOUT STUPID JUMPING MONSTERS (which is a good thing).. but CoD4 just felt so much more intense, and fun.

    I would love to get this on the pc when it comes out but need to save money for a trip this christmas break. One of my friends is getting it on the 360 though.

    This is my most anticipated game of the year and a day one purchase (360 version)

    I enjoyed the CoD4 beta more than Halo 3, and more than TF2.

    the demo ran surprisingly well on my PC at middling settings, but I think I'm gonna get it for 360 because of how smooth the beta felt

    I'd love to get in on some MP with you upstanding gentlemen provided I get the game sooner rather than later

    I mean, yeah the CoD4 demo was intense and incredibly well scripted, it's the same linear of path of scripted sequences and polished to hell, but other than the modern skin, it felt like the same game we've already played twice. Maybe the russian levels will be different, but advancing through hordes of enemies to get to an objective and press the C4 button has been done to death. maybe the russian sniper missions will be better. And i'm not saying that it's bad, it certainly was an enjoyable 20 minutes, and I'll probably pick it up sometime early next year, but the step from CoD2 to CoD4 seems to be about as much of a step up as BF2 to BF2142 (ie, the basic gameplay is polished and a few chrome peices are put in, but the basic gameplay is the same).

    Besides, I never ment to say that CoD4 is a bad game or anything, just that PC gamers have been hyping Crysis a heck of a lot more, and it seems like most of the anticipation for CoD4 seem to be coming from 360 people.

    Speaking for myself I could care less about the single player campaign. It's the multiplayer that's so much better than any CoD that's come before.

    CoD2 and CoD3 were ok, but the introduction of modern weapons, combined with full clan support and levelling .... CoD4 multiplayer is a totally new experience.

    Yeah, that might make a difference. I only played a few rounds of CoD multiplayer, and the whole arcadey DM thing with WW2 weapons didn't really do it for me, especially when compared to RtCW. To be honest, I hadn't given CoD4 multiplayer much thought.

    There is a big reason you're hearing so much anticipation from 360 people (as you noted earlier). CoD4 had a month long Multiplayer Beta test on the 360 that ended September 30th. Alot of us, myself included, played multiplayer to death and are currently suffering from a major case of withdrawal.

    You know, I really would have liked to played a character in the French Foreign Legion or something similar, that could have set up the scene for some really really interesting stuff, regarding the politics of such things, and as well, it makes those "being dropped deep in shit" moments a lot more reasonable from a realistic standpoint. I saw a documentary on them a while back, and damn. I'm kinda disappointed that they just decided to go with 'vanilla' SAS/Marines.

    I like to try multiplayer every once in awhile but its never been my thing. CoD 1 really grabbed me with its awesome battles and scripted sequences. Like when you cross that open field and its all quiet....then BOOM MG42s going crazy at you while you run from crater to crater to cow carcass.

    CoD 2 had some great moments too. Never played 3. But I remember the first two had some lengthy campaigns and after hearing that this game might be 6 hours for a mediocre player really disturbs me.

    I like to replay shooters more than any other game but if it means there are only so many levels that I'll be repeating then boo.

    Also why the fuck is the Desert Eagle in this and not a SOCOM with all kinds of fancy shit on it? Nobody in real life uses that gun. At least its little brother is in it.

    The only thing I hate is with all these shooters its hard to switch them around. It's REALLY hard for me to play Halo 3 (as in I suck now) because I'm so very used to playing TF2. Now when THIS comes out I might be giving up TF2 :(

    This is one of the few games that looked and ran better on the XBox 360 than my PC. They must have optimized the hell out of it. Much props to the devs.

    PGR4! Ive been the biggest fan of the series since fuckin MSR. Me not buying PGR4 day one is like 043 not buying Halo 3 day one. Ludicrous.

    And I make light of the situation, but it is becoming a serious problem. I just do not have enough time in my life to play all of these games. I havent even played Forza 2 or crackdown. I have so much shit not played that I must play eventually I will be buying one game per week until April. Im not kidding. 1 per week.

    Re: the demo- without giving too much away I can say that Bog is the most traditional CoD level in the game, which is why it was put in the demo. You'll see a lot of stuff you haven't seen in a CoD game (or in any first person shooter for that matter).

    And of course the multiplayer is phenomenal, but everybody knows that by now.

    Currently on the 360 version you can add in your clan tag before your gamertag without having to actually change your gamertag ... it may not seem like much but this is a big first for 360 multiplayer titles. Combined with a Halo3 ish party/matchmaking system ... yeah pretty much full clan support/clan friendly.

    I suspect that clan leaderboards/scrims/tourneys will leap up around this.

    Uh...R6:Vegas let you have a clan tag. But it is still a pretty cool feature.

    Add another voice to the the chorus of praise here. The MP beta was phenomenal, way beter than Halo 3 IMO, especially if you prefer a focus on infantry combat over vehicular shenanigans (not that that isn't fun too.) The gunplay in CoD4 just feels so right
