Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare is a game in the Call of Duty franchise, developed specifically for the Nintendo DS. It was released on November 5, 2007. Like Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare for traditional consoles, the DS Call of Duty 4 takes place in modern day and offers players real-life weapons. The game features many elements of gameplay typical to the series, including the usage of iron sights, heavy scripting, and vehicular missions.[5]



As a first-person shooter, Modern Warfare puts in the player inside various military soldiers, with a focus exclusively on combat. The game offers a variety of real-world weapons and vehicles. The majority of the missions are ground-level infantry combat, but there are several missions in which the player mans a turret in an aircraft or Humvee.

The player looks around and aims the currently equipped weapon using the touch screen. On foot, the touch screen is also used to switch and reload firearms, switch to grenades, and interact with the game world; the directional pad is used to move and the shoulder buttons fire the current firearm.

To utilize unique features of the DS, this version includes several unique touch-screen features, including hacking terminals and bomb disarmament. Inventory controls and an overhead map and radar are located on the touch screen. The DS offers local multi-player via built-in wireless, but does not offer the online multiplayer central to the console and PC versions.[6]

The game takes place in a cold gray Russia and a bright, dusty Middle East and follows a fictitious storyline.[7] The game features twelve single player levels in its campaign, as well as several multiplayer modes including deathmatch, team deathmatch, and capture the flag.[8] Multiplayer supports up to four players and utilizes both multicard play and download play.[9]


The DS version of the game allows the player to assume the roles of several soldiers, who are either affiliated with the British S.A.S. or U.S. Marines (Corporal Parker). Unlike the console and PC version of Call of Duty 4, players do not directly impact the outcome of the war. Instead of going after the main antagonists of the overall plot (the Four Horsemen: Russian and his allies), the playable characters in the DS version participate in minor missions, such as escaping from an American military base in as it is attacked by enemy forces, or raiding two cargo ships in the stormy black and dark Baltic Sea which may be carrying nuclear materials. The DS version focuses less on the main attempts to end the conflict and more on the supporting role of the various other soldiers who played a part in the war. The player can also be a gunner on a AC 130-Spectre Gunship as are in the regular console/computer version of Call of Duty 4.

The Nintendo DS version received an average score of 76% based on 19 reviews on the review aggregator GameRankings,[19] and an average score of 75 out of 100 based on 22 reviews on Metacritic — indicating "generally favorable reviews."[10]

IGN scored Call of Duty 4's DS version at 7.8/10, praising elements including a surprising level of complexity for the hardware, "impressive sound production all around", fun gameplay, and enjoyable multiplayer. Criticism of the game notes some minor glitches, the absence of an online multiplayer mode, and inconsistencies in damage between different weapons.[6] GameSpot scored the game 7.0/10, praising technical achievements of the engine and audio which "... deliver the true Call of Duty experience". They also criticized the game's controls and lack of online multiplayer, noting "... the DS version doesn't offer any of the online modes that its console counterparts do, which means that your interest in the game will probably wane significantly after you complete that initial play-through."[14]
