Game Review ( Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare Beta - 360 )

Graphics: 5/5 One of, if not the best, looking games on the 360. It runs extremely well with little lag. ( All depends on the host. ) The game looks amazing. It will probably look even better once the full version of the game is released.

Sound: 5/5 Best sounding game on the 360 for sure. The back-talk, explosions, and guns, sound better than any other game available.

Control: 4.75/5 Feels just like Call of Duty's 2 and 3 on the 360, but a tweaked a little bit. They actually feel a little bit better. There are still some frustrating moments, though, such as when your teammates won't get out of your way when you're running.

Fun: 5/5 Only 3 maps, and you can only get to level 16 max, but it's still an amazing game, for sure. I don't know how long I'll be playing the beta, since it's so restricted and has such few things to do on it, but it's a TON of fun. Actually, to be honest, there is almost too action in this game for its own good. I can't wait for the full version of the game.


The Maps:

Vacant: 4.75/5 A very good map. Vacant is a pretty small map, based mainly inside a square building, with the ability to go outside. This map is super close quarters... it's also awesome. Non-stop firefights make this one of the bests maps I've played on any shooter.

Overgrown: 3.75/5 Purely average. Overgrown reminds me a lot of the map Harvester on SOCOM 3: U.S. Navy SEALs for the PS2. It's really, really average. It looks a bit like something out of a Call of Duty 2 or 3 games at times, too. It's a pretty big map, with little shelter. Really a sniper's paradise. Not very good.

Crash: 5/5 Amazing to say the least. Crash is a small/medium sized map that has a wrecked helicopter in the middle of the map. ( a la Black Hawk Down? ) The atmosphere of this map is spectacular. There are several buildings to go in and on to shoot from, plenty of ground to run around... and whatnot. This map will be liked mainly by run-and-gunners, like myself. Fantastic map.
