"Not my cup of tea."
3 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Imagine sitting there at your computer, trying to play a game and someone is standing right beside you screaming in your ear the whole time. I liken playing COD 2 to that. It's pretty much full-on all the time. You barely get a single moment's piece. Go go go! In COD 1 there were parts like that and some more quiet. I didn't finish this game because it no longer has that balance. It's just frenetic, fast paced chaos nearly all the time. Well, at least judging by what I saw of the game, which wasn't all that much because that's not my idea of fun. If it is yours, then you'll have a blast. Just don't play it if you have problems coping with stress.

Technically it's awesome. It looks great and the AI is terrific but beware, it's another system hog. I had sluggish performance on my 6800.

I didn't like the health/damage system. Unlike every other FPS you've played, when you take damage you will more or less instantly heal automatically. You can really only be killed by grenades (which happens a lot) or if you just stand their taking fire like an idiot. I got nailed by rifle and machine gun fire all the time and just shrugged it off like Wolverine from X-men. To me this is stupid and ruins the whole experience, but I think they did this in order to maintain the pace and high intensity of the combat. If bullets could kill you, you'd be getting killed ever five seconds.

The other thing is there's no save game function. The game saves at checkpoints so be prepared to be doing stuff over a few times.

It's not really fair to review a game I haven't finished, but I just can't take another minute of it.

Description

Infinity Ward are back in action with Call of Duty 2, an all new epic title which delivers an unparalleled portrayal of the chaos and intensity that was World War II. The sequel to the award-winning Call of Duty, Call of Duty 2 is powered by a proprietary new engine featuring striking new visuals, advanced A.I. technology, the most realistic squad combat and explosive action in new historic campaigns. Call of Duty 2 lets players experience four individual soldier stories as they overcome insurmountable odds in multiple campaigns. Players have the freedom to follow each of the four storylines through for the ultimate character-driven experience, or they can engage in the historic battles chronologically for quick hitting action. Infinity Ward, creator of the blockbuster, original Call of Duty, has also expanded the scope of combat to deliver a truly realistic battlefield experience. Squads now have the freedom to take on a variety of mission objectives, on expansive battlefields that allow for multiple paths and the ability to utilize actual combat tactics like outflanking and fire and maneuver capabilities. Call of Duty 2's new engine and A.I. technology set the stage for authentic squad combat and astonishing action. Concealment can be key as battlefield smoke or even deployed smoke grenades cloud visibility. Weather effects such as the dusty sandstorms of North Africa and whiteout blizzard conditions of Russia, for example, will keep soldiers glued to their bunkers. The team has also employed a state-of-the-art Battle Chatter System that brings the action to life as squad-mates bark out context-sensitive updates in real-time to players through an advanced A.I. system. "Our team at Infinity Ward is committed to thrusting gamers into the heat of battle like no other, taking players on a thrill-ride of adrenaline that leaves everyone gasping for air," states Grant Collier, president, Infinity Ward. "In Call of Duty 2, we are creating the most intense and realistic action game imaginable with a stunning visual atmosphere and an advanced technology that delivers an unprecedented level of authenticity."
