COD4 is still one of the best modern FPS shooters on the market and if you've not played it yet you should definitely think about picking up a copy, especially if you want to get the most out of Modern Warfare 2's storyline.
Simply Games are currently parting with copies of the GOTY edition on the PS3 for £14.85, which is just over £1 cheaper than the next best price of £15.93 from The Hut.

In addition to the standard game, the game of the year edition comes with the Creek, Broadcast, Chinatown, and Killhouse multiplayer maps, which'll add more variety to your online experience, and lets face it the multiplayer's where you're going to spend the majority of your time once you've worked your way through the amazing single player campaign.
I definitely prefer the story in COD 4 to that of Modern Warfare 2 and the campaign is packed full of moments that are great fun to play, and in some cases take your breath away, such as the first time you see one of your team mates appear out of seemingly nowhere as they rise from the floor in a ghillie suit. The graphics in the main game really pull you into some of the war torn areas that you visit and both the characters and environments look fantastic.
Whilst a lot of players will more than likely have defected to playing Modern Warfare 2 online, COD 4 still has a thriving community composed of both hardcore fans and those that like to occasionally drop back into the action.
This is the game that broke the mould for the Call of Duty series, finally moving away from the tired and overused WW2 battlefields and putting us into modern, high tech, action packed scenarios, and since its release has set the bench mark for every FPS that's followed it. If you've yet to witness its magnificence, misplaced your original copy, or want to play the single player campaign back to back with that of Modern Warfare 2 then you should definitely treat yourself to this gaming delight.
