Default COD4: what's all the hype?

I played COD4 demo, and it was OK, but didn't think I was going to buy it, but everywhere I read, everyone's saying how great it is, and choosing it as their favorite FPS game of 2007 (over crysis). What's all the hype?

Anyway, because of the overwhelming feedback, I think I'll just take the chance and spend the $50 to see if there's more than the demo lets on.....

Feedback is appreciated...

i bought the game, and i want my money back. It has decent visuals but the squad is just so damn annoying.

Its like you are not really needed to be around. Dumb squad always gets in the way. you have to follow them on every move. Enemies keep re-swaning like crazy, unless to pass certain spot on map.

there is only one decent map in the game, and thats the chernobyl map. Rest of the game is average. Really nothing to get excited about.

Well I loved the single player aspect of COD4. Graphics just blew me away and the missions were very well scripted.

For me the mutiplayer is so-so
I'm not much into run and gunning - meaning not much for strats - I still think the game was worth it for the single player alone (somewhat short 12 hours~).

So far I have to admit I like COD4 single player better then crysis

Crysis has better Single Player, you at least have freedom

The game has 2 fun levels (1h gameplay) but the rest was very boring, dull and repetitive. I didn't notice any major satisfaction in the rest of the game (5h) and actually more annoyance because I constantly died from granades, exploding cars or barrels. Not my style of gameplay () and visually it didn't impress me either.

To me...Game of the Year should go to either BioShock or Crysis. I know that BioShock is very much like System Shock 2, and Crysis is pretty much a futuristic Far Cry minus the monster and plus some aliens. Neither of them are really groundbreaking in that sense, but both are very artistic and imaginative.

there should be a some type of patch for COD4 to kill off your entire SQUAD. This game has the most ****ing anoying team to be ever included in a game.

Sounds like I am the only one that liked COD4 ...
I didnt have 1 problem with my squad ... now granted I dont expect them to be as good as me but they did just fine and they even killed more enemies then I would expert.

Your team is invincible therefore they're not the most annying teammates ever. The most annoying ones are games where the teammates run up ahead, die, and then you have to restart the mission.

Edit: I enjoyed CoD4 tremendously, and without a doubt it's the FPS of the year for me.

CoD4 is the GOTY for me. Performance is extremely smooth (unlike Crysis) and even though the SP is scripted and has less "freedom", it is still intense action left and right. The multiplayer is very very addictive! I'm still playing like crazy.

If you want an awesome SP/MP experience without it raping your PC, get CoD4.

single player wasnt that fun. playing it on veteran is more of a test of anger management than a fun experience. multiplayer however is pretty good.
