Halving the price would compensate for multiplayer limitations


Well, it isn't as crisp as it is on the PS3, but it's still decent, although overpriced. Disappointing that it doesn't have controller support. However, I have ControllerMate and have used it to configure an Xbox wireless controller and a PS3 controller to play the game, because I'm not so good with a keyboard in first-person shooters.

My only real gripe is that, although I can play in multiplayer, I have to choose from servers already there, and can't set up my own. When I try to set up my own game, and click on Start, the game disappears and is replaced by a CoD4 Console window, which shows many lines of text and a line at the bottom for text entry. There's no explanation of what this is or what I'm supposed to do. I've read internet posts from other players that CoD4 servers can't be run on a Mac. I feel that this is the sort of limitation that should be in the information panel for this game in the App Store.

3 stars for being a decent version compared with PS3, but loses 2 stars for disallowing players to set up their own servers, despite having the option to do so in the multiplayer game menu.

Call of Duty 4: Modern Warefare

I origionally downloaded this game when there was issues with punkbuster and so decided to hang on with the campain untill there was an update. This was absolutely fine as the campain is fantastic and now this update has become available im loving multiplayer.

The game itself as im sure most people who are thinking of downloading already know is extremely fun (same can't be said for all Call of Duty games), the campain is one of the best if not the greatest in the franchise and its multiplayer is arguably the best also. It is a shame more legendary games like this arn't available for Mac (obviosly there's HL2, CS:S ect on steam) but it is great to see games like this being released on the App Store.

I reccomend everyone who likes COD but is unsure about buying on Mac, eg. used to console, to buy this and anyone who generally likes FPS's but still doesn't have this for some reason. The servers online are still very busy so I see no reason to be put off because the game is old.

punkbuster still an issue after latest update


i bought this game as soon as it was available on the app store on apple mac. i had issues trying to stay in games online due to punkbuster a week after i got the game causing me to give up playing it altogether. i was really happy to find an update "fixing all punkbuster issues and mods" however after downloading and installing the update (6.9 gig :O) i have still come across the EXACT same issue, leaving me to think that the update was a lot of crap and hasnt worked like it should. i have attempted to update it manually via the punkbuster website but thats ridiculuosly confusing to do and doesnt work at all.

if anyone has any way past this please let me know.

that is the only reason why im giving this game 4 Stars, if the problem gets fixed its an easy 5 stars as the online (what ive managed to play) and the campaign is top notch :)
