Latest sequel in Call of Duty series branded Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare might be the best game released in November. Judging by the scores all over the Internet Activision's new baby might threaten the "highly praised" hardware-eating Crysis.
Yours truly had high expectations for Activision's Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare and the game did look good in its early alpha and demo stages. Still, we are surprised to see that game is averaging ratings of 9.5 out of 10 as it is far exceeded our expectations. Activision and Infinity Ward have surely hit the sweet spot with this one.
Gamedaily's article reports that according to Nollenberger Capital Partners analyst, Todd Greenwald, demand for the new Call of Duty sequel is extremely high and the game is sold out "across the board." That same report predicts that sales of Call of Duty 4 could reach a million copies or even more.
November belongs to Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, at least for now, and we sincerely agree with all those scores. Crytek's Crysis has a tough one to beat, and those hardware requirements might be the bad omen. You can find some of those reviews below. Fudo also tried the game with 8800 Ultra and a high end rig and was quite surprised with the game itself. He claims that the game is way better than he expected and that it deserves high scores.
