For the first time, Call of Duty comes to the Nintendo DS. Some say it may be a bit tricky using the stylus, and yes they might be right, But it doesnt take away the excitement of Call Of Duty 4. Star in the SAS, fight as the almighty Marines as your travels see you fighting from the middle east to Azerbijan. Use Lock-on Javelins, Barret 50.cals and much more advanced weaponry as you aim to take out some of the biggest names in nuclulear material. Regardless of what console it's on. Call of Duty 4 is an amazing game.
The plot centers around a man named Al-Asad, who is currently targeted by the American army. Al-Asad has ties to Imran Zakhaev, who is targeted by the Russian army. In the game, you play as both a soldier in the American and British armies, switching back and forth as the story progresses. The plot is told through cutscenes, which all appear throughout the 11 missions.
The game makes use of the DS features, but doesn't overdo it. Throughout the plot, you'll be defusing bombs and hacking terminals. The controls are simple as well. The stylus is used to navigate on the touch screen, which will also serve as a map, the R button let's you shoot your gun, tapping the X and B buttons will let you run and crouch. There aren't as many weapons in the DS version, though. Throughout the game you may gain access to a M16, AK-47, MP5, Mini Uzi, M19, a sniper rifle, a shotgun, and an RPG-7.
Whereas the DS version does not support Wi-Fi, it does have some nice multiplayer modes which can support up to four people, either by multi-card play or single-card download play. The multiplayer modes include Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, Hunter/Prey, and Capture The Flag.
