Final Breakdown


See Also: Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. There are tweaks and alterations, but the core is the same. If you can't devote a lot of time to it, it may not be your title.


Call of Duty has always been about pushing the graphical envelope, and this one's no different.

Sound and Music:

Again, classic Call of Duty attention to detail here. They do a good job with their atmospherics.


Dealing in "difficulty" is hard to do for FPS titles, strategy or not, and much of the difficulty of the game's going to depend on your human enemies in multiplayer. Either invest a lot of time, or expect the difficulty to be upgraded merely because the other people investing a lot of time will carry a lot heavier weaponry than you can afford.

Controls and Interface:

Well, we're talking Call of Duty here. Don't expect the interface to change, too many old players have gotten used to it.


As a franchise-continuance, the goal is to keep fans of the series happy. That, they have accomplished. If you have the time to invest in it and love the FPS/tactical mechanics, jump right in. If not, you may want to think about it, as the perks/experience system tends to degrade the experience for more casual players over time.
