    Because the game is using UDP packets. When you allow an application, you are allowing only TCP traffic. You need rules to allow UDP traffic.

    Look 'n' Stop contains a packet filter (Internet Filtering tab) which is independant from the application filtering.

    You need to add some rules to allow protocols & ports used by call of duty 4.
    To know the protocols & port used, you can look at Look 'n' Stop log, or at call of duty 4 FAQ.
    You can create a rule with a right click on an alert from the log, or by importing generic rules:
