Call of Duty 4. World at War never really grabbed me the same way.

Gotta go with CoD4 between the two of them. Not that WaW wasn't excellent in its own right, it just felt like most of the challenge came from being Zerged half the time, which got older much faster than the urban/infrastructure environments of CoD4.

I haven't started playing WAW yet, but based on the demo, I like COD4 better.

COD4 is better online multiplayer, but I can easily say the single player for COD WAW is fantastic.

Same here.. haven't played WAW yet, but reading reviews, listening to various comments by gamers, and videos.. Looks like COD4 seems better and more fun..

4 for MP, WAW for SP even though it's very short.

I just don't like the weapon (im)balance in WAW.
Bolt action rifles take 2-3 hits to kill in regular play, during which time someone with a semi/auto will fill you full of holes.
In HC they're 1 hit kills, but then so are 99% of the other guns too so you still don't gain anything.

Wish they'd make the bolt-actions like they were in the original CoD: Chest or higher is a one-hit kill

the single player in WaW is TERRIBAD. Since when do you stumble on an enemy encampent, and there are 300 soldiers there, and you kill them all, and 50 feet down the road there are another 100 soldiers, you kill them, another 50 feet down you get ambushed by 50 more, another 50 feet, and 100 more come at you!

wtF is that?
