call of duty 4 short

  citadel 18:10 25 Oct 2007

After waiting for call of duty 4 I am disappointed to learn that the single player only lasts seven hours. Then to cap it hellgate london is not very good, score 73. Reviews in pc gamer.

Sadly this seems to be the way a lot of games are going.Selling the single player mode short because you can play indefinately in online mode is not much good if you don't like playing online.
I personally only play in single player,so like yourself am dissapointed when a game sells you short.
I'll still get cod4 though(under protest).

The first mission - the demo - was far too short. I was hoping on its release that all missions would be longer. TC.

I'm like mrwoowoo I like the single player and haven't any really interest in multiplayer. I too have been seeing a lot of games falling short and I think its a shame. I was wanting to get Medal of Honor Airborne but was put off as it was short, it seems that COD4 is going to be the same.

I think I'll wait until I can get them cheaper, theres no way I'm paying all that money for something thats so short.

The other option regarding paying top whack for a shortish game is to sell it on ebay after you finish it.That way you get it at release and it basically ends up half the price.This works for me as i only enjoy playing a game once anyway,no matter how good.Obviously if you like a game collection or play a game again and again it's not an option.

Sometimes various game forums post a means of making up your own missions. I can't remember what that's called and have no idea on how to go about it, but it would tend to extend a good game a little more. TC.

It's called modding or game mods.You can add or design levels,add enemy's,extra weapons and lots more.Best to google your game followed by mods or modding.Never tried it but i may do as it looks very interesting.
I know Woolfie is into it in a big way,especially with halo,so he's the boy to ask.

I've got all the other PC versions of CoD - shame about CoD3 was not for PC - and including a mod or two would cetainly revive my interest in them. I particularly like CoD2 because that high-pitched voice of a German is great and it always re-appears again soon after you've 'killed' him. Very funny! Apologies for straying off thread, citadel.
