Call of Duty 4 dropped through my letterbox today. I have been meaning to buy it for sometime and when I noticed the special edition in the Play.com sale, I couldn’t resist.

My initial impression of COD4 was simply “wow”. I didn’t actually want to play the game at first, instead simply sit back in awe of the amazing design and lush graphics. I was impressed with the predecessor, COD2, a couple of years ago; but I wasn’t expecting such an improvement.

When I was a young child, I was given a Sega Master System for Christmas. Bundled with the console was the war-based shoot-em-up Operation Wolf. My parents didn’t like me playing it, and always insisted I play Alex the Kidd (I had a sheltered upbringing). The few times I did have the pleasure of shooting the soldiers of Bosnia (where the real life war was being held at the time) I remember being amazed at the authenticity of the basic 8-bit console. Looking at COD4 today, it is incredible how technology has improved. It is surely only a matter of time before videogames are on a par, visually, with reality… Grand Theft Auto 5, anyone? :o)

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
