In a completely unshocking turn of events, a game billed as the "Grand Theft Auto for girls" has pissed off people who we're all beginning to assume earn a living being outraged and screaming "Won't someone ple...

Destructoid's games of the week for 11/25/2007: Is this a cop out edition?

It's a video. Watch it.Why?First, because I'm utterly fascinated with both foreign girls AND spunky indie girls; Superbus lead Jennifer Ayache is the epitome of everything I love about women, and as soon as I'm done with th...

As if gold farming couldn't get any worse, now it funds pederasty

As an amateur Internet historian and a professional whatever-I-do-here, most of my skills are completely underwhelming. As often as I tell women in bars that I'm really very hilarious (on the Internet), few seem to offer me i...

Halo novel becomes NYT best seller, just like my novel Jurassic Park

There's been a lot of petty sniping towards Halo from both the anti-Microsoft crowd and the contrarian, anti-mainstream crowd ever since the pre-release hype for Halo 3 began building up, but absolutely no one, regardless of ...

Destructoid's games of the week for 11/18/2007: Mixed messages edition!

Guys, I'd love to spend an hour crafting a deep, engaging story about why my hair hurts this week, but honestly I'm too absorbed in Assassin's Creed to give this whole thing much thought. One of the true joys of a gig like th...

Live-action Assassin's Creed: They couldn't find a koala to play with?

Assassin's Creed has been a debacle for days now. Between the less-than-stellar response and the childish vagina worship surrounding its producer, one gets the feeling that Ubisoft would rather just forget about the game an...

Destructoid Review: Call of Duty 4 photo
Destructoid Review: Call of Duty 4
by Earnest Cavalli

The first two Call of Duty games were widely praised as the next step in the first-person shooter genre. They had bombastic action sequences, gripping storylines and enough Nazi-bashing to make George Patton squeal like a young girl. Even today they stand out as the finest examples of the ultra-over-saturated World War II FPS subgenre, but like the Treaty of Versailles the series' string of stunning successes couldn't last forever. Call of Duty 3, while a competent game, certainly didn't live up to the brand, and while above-average, was seen as the low point of the series.

With Call of Duty 4 though, Infinity Ward (developers of the original two titles) have taken the reins back from Treyarch (developers of CoD3) and abandoned the World War II setting. This new game takes place entirely in the modern day, while clinging sharply to the things that made the series a success in the first place. How'd it turn out? Hit the jump to find out.
