Excerpt: Ever since Call of Duty, we’ve been seeing WW2 first person shooters growing by the bushes. However, none of those have managed to even come close to the singleplayer experience that CoD provided. The most intense WW2 FPS ever has returned! But should we be happy with that?
Excerpt: It seems as though we have been at war in WWII games for longer than the real war. When the first Call of Duty came on the market, it was one of the best WWII FPS games in a category that was already overflowing with games.
Excerpt: Call of Duty 2 is the most amazing looking WWII game to date, and that is saying something. I am not referring to just how clean the graphics look either. Call of Duty 2 blends style and substance to create a very immersive FPS experience.

Excerpt: Call of Duty 2 is one of the most anticipated games of 2005, and it doesn?t disappoint. Building upon the already huge Call of Duty franchise with a new engine, great looking new graphics and new AI, the game is set to be one of the best games of the year.

Conclusion: Wrap-Up: Good and bad aside, COD2 is a good game and one you , the player, will get enjoyment out of (if your not sick of WWII shooters that is). My advice to you is wait till the price drops to something more realistic of what you’re buying. Happy Democracy/Communism defending!
Conclusion: THE VERDICT: Without wishing to disrespect the actual participants, this game is still just WWII the same as it ever was. We've all seen Saving Private Ryan, all played Medal of Honour (or similar), and there's nothing new here other than in the way the experience is presented.
