X-bit Labs has tested the performance of several mainstream, performance and high-end cards from ATI and NVIDIA in Call of Duty: World at War. You can check it out over here.
The fourth game marked a sudden departure from the WW2 theme. CoD 4: Modern Warfare is set in our time, its plot being almost as surrealistic as in the Red Alert games. Bent on restoring the Soviet Union, Russian ultranationalist Imran Zakhaev provokes a war in the Middle East to draw the public attention away from his actions in Russia. The game begins with a SAS group infiltrating an Estonian registered cargo ship suspected to have a nuclear weapon on board. You mostly play for Sergeant “Soap” MacTavish, but for a few levels he is substituted with Paul Jackson of USMC 1st Force Recon. The rest of the roles the player has to enact throughout the game are episodic. Despite the surrealism, the plot is well-devised and interesting to follow. No wonder that the game got positive reports from all leading reviewers.
