Call of Duty 2: Big Red One
13 February 2006
Conclusion: Call of Duty 2 Big Red One is a good attempt to bring current gen console gamers the new Call of Duty Experience with added presentation value from the Band of Brothers cast and the Military Channel. However to do this they pretty much had to scale everything down. This game looks nice, but not nearly as nice as Call of Duty 2 on the PC and Xbox360. Itâ€™s intense, but not as intense as regular Call of Duty 2.
Excerpt: Graphically, Activision’s Call of Duty 2: Big Red One is quite impressive. But this isn’t because of the texture quality, as that is fairly poor, in fact. What sets this World War II action game apart are the effects that it produces. As you work your way through each area, you’ll be surrounded by flying debris, smoke and explosions. The smoke, as it is outstanding in every way, even causes your vision to be obstructed when searching out enemies to take out.
Excerpt: WWII games you either love em or you dont, Im in the second category, WWII games to me just dont click with me. I mean its just Call of Duty games but Medal of Honor never sparked my Interest as well. However for some reason I like Battlefield 2 so I approached Call of Duty 2: Big Red One with the good memories of BF2 and not the disappointments of the latest Medal of Honors. And also the Call of Duty 2 on the Gamecube is different from the one on the PC and Xbox360.
Conclusion: Obwohl das Thema Krieg und Amerikas Heldenrolle als Befreier der Unterdrückten schon oft genug in Egoshootern behandelt wurde, ist das Spiel trotzdem kurzweilig und interessant. Gerade die völlig andere Story im Gegensatz zur PC- und Xbox 360-Version kann überzeugen, da so ein direkter Vergleich zwischen Playstation 2 und PC nicht möglich ist, bei dem die PS2 sowieso den Kürzeren gezogen hätte.
