"Unbelievable......."
4 stars"

This game truly lets you write history in all the right ways.

Paying respect to the true lives lost in World War Two, it ignites a flame inside you that drives you on to defeat the enemy. Great Graphics, with reasonable demand GFX wise, Geforce Ti's play it no probs, this is a fun game to sit back and play online and single-player.

3 Campaigns as an American, Britishman, and a Russian you immerse yourself into three totally different concepts of 19th – 20th century warfare.

Great Play, good investment with a DSL connection

"An Excellent War Title"

If Medal of Honour: Allied Assault (MOHAA) is considered to be the game version of ‘Saving Private Ryan’, then Call of Duty (CoD) can be considered the game version of ‘Band of Brothers’.

Developed by the team behind MOHAA, CoD was guaranteed to be a quality piece – and it is. CoD is strikingly similar to MOHAA in many ways, yet is updated enough to be considered a pseudo-sequel.

While CoD is still based on the Quake 3 engine, it has been transformed and improved significantly from its deathmatch origins and renders the open and closed areas convincingly well, allowing for, at times, some very nice visuals. Character models have also been improved, allowing for realistic movement and facial animations.

The games audio also deserves special mention… it is brilliant! I use a 5.1 speaker setup and the sound was so crisp and well produced it was startling. A perfect example of how important good audio can be to a game.

The game is heavily scripted, but it is the price you pay for some of the ‘Wow!’ moments you're in store for. Some might find the game too ‘on rails’, and while it may feel that way, the developers have done their best to make this transparent, allowing you a certain degree of freedom.

While some of the missions (especially those indoors) are a bit drab and ho-hum, most of the game's scenes are well crafted, capturing the action of war so completely, it is stunning. A few of these scenes are extremely memorable and jaw-droppingly good.

Multiplayer seems to be a love/hate preference. From the little I played of it, it did nothing for me. I say, buy this for the single player and try Battlefield 1942 for multiplayer.

Probably the best WW2 FPS experience to date.

"This is not worth 5 stars!"
4 stars"

As a fan of MoH:AA I purchased CoD hearing the original team behind MoH created it. Its actually pretty obvious when you start playing the game. The same feeling of being in heated fire-fights from the MoH franchise is present in this game, and the graphics style (very dated now) is almost identical.

The not-so-steller graphics do not detract from the gameplay however, as what it lacks in graphics it more than makes up for in atmosphere, espeacially evident in the early Russian missions with you charging, unarmed, at German machine-gun nests outside Stalingrad.

Where this game really fails is in the A.I. The game's selling point is its team based A.I, but in the highest difficulty setting the A.I breaks down almost completely. Though the enemy bots can do some pretty silly things (i.e. throwing a grenade at you when you're standing next to them), it's nothing compared to your suicidal, murderous allies.

These guys do more to get you killed than to aid you in your attacks. They'll stand in the open, near enemy machine-gun nests; they'll bloke you in doorways; and even throw grenades at you if you're in close proximety to an enemy. They'll let enemy units they're standing next to shoot at you without responding, only reacting when they themselves are shot at. And what do they do? They duck, right out in the open. It came to the point on some occasions where I'd simply let the enemy wipe out my crew and then do the missions solo.

If they A.I was up to scratch I may well of marked this game 5 stars. But with the failing of the A.I I can barely rate it a 4.

Description

Developed by Infinity Ward--a newly formed studio including 22 of the individuals, and all of the production leads, who developed the PC title Medal of Honor: Allied Assault. Call of Duty delivers the gritty realism and cinematic intensity of World War II's epic battlefield moments like never before - through the eyes of citizen soldiers and unsung heroes from an alliance of countries who together helped shape the course of modern history. Play through the chaos of battle as part of a well-trained squad, that lays down covering fire and pulls its wounded to safety. In addition to authentic squad movements and tactics, each soldier's distinct personality and training comes out on the battlefield. No one soldier or nation single-handedly won the war. For the first time, Call of Duty captures the war from multiple perspectives, through the eyes of American, British and Russian soldiers. Battle through 24 missions spanning 4 interconnected historical campaigns. Take on mission objectives ranging from sabotage and all-out assault to stealth, vehicle combat and rescue. Authentic weapons, locations, vehicles and sounds of war all contribute to the realism, immersing you in the most intense World War II experience yet. Features:
  • Cinematic Intensity Of War – Experience the gritty realism of combat as never before – as Allied soldiers battling Nazi forces through a variety of authentic combat, ranging from epic battlefield conflicts and coordinated tactical assaults to sabotage, stealth, sniper and even vehicle based missions. Huge battle moments put players in the heat of the action, capturing the chaos of war - Allied bombers fly above, as explosions shake the ground and tracer bullets streak overhead. Journey through a variety of environments, including historic battlefields, towns, bridges, forests, a POW camp and even a battleship, all realistically created from extensive WWII archival research. Take on enemies with an explosive arsenal of authentic WWII weapons, including pistols, machine guns, sniper rifles and grenades. Man entrenched guns, plant explosives, drive tanks and vehicles to complete mission objectives and move closer to taking down the Nazi War Machine.
  • Brothers-In-Arms – Experience the camaraderie of a squad, bond together through the chaos of battle, where each soldier will have unique duties, personalities and roles to play and their emotions and reactions to the events on the battlefield will differ. Through advanced AI, a player’s squad will act like a trained military unit, with authentic squad movements and tactics - laying down suppressing fire, providing cover fire, coordinating attacks on entrenched positions and even pulling wounded soldiers from the battlefield. Combat success will rely on a combination of skills along with the ability to work together with squad mates to accomplish mission objectives and eliminate enemies. Featuring advanced AI, enemies will make use of cover, use tactical combat maneuvers and call for reinforcements.
  • United Offensive – World War II was won through the collective efforts of average soldiers who all heeded their Call of Duty. Now, for the first time, players can experience the gripping combat of WWII through the eyes of American, British and Russian soldiers, through four interconnected military campaigns spanning 24 epic game missions. Begin the campaign as a member of a U.S. D-Day paratrooper squad from the legendary 101st Airborne dropped behind enemy lines and lay the groundwork for the D-Day Invasion. Later, take the role of a member of the British Special Forces - 6th Airborne Troop, and take part in the famous assault of Pegasus Bridge. Lastly, assume the role of a Russian infantry soldier during the harrowing battle of Stalingrad. A final campaign will then wrap the stories of each of the three soldiers together, with one final daring mission to complete from each perspective.
  • Intense First Person Shooter Combat - Based on an extensively enhanced version of the Return to Castle Wolfenstein/Quake III Game Engine, Call of Duty delivers an intense FPS experience, blending fast action gameplay and detailed graphics with epic battlefield scenarios featuring scores of soldiers and incredible special effects.
