Summary: Great shape! Got it to add to my legendary PC games collection. This game blew the PC game worlds minds years ago! I still remember my eyes nearly falling out of my head playing the demo in DIRECT X 7!!!!!! Awesome, thanks.
Summary: Call of Duty 2 (COD2) builds on the original. While it is pretty dated, it is a value at less than ten dollars. You can play as the Russians in the battle for Stalingrad, the British from the battle for El Alamein through North Africa and a little around Caen, and the Americans on D-Day at Pointe du Hoc and the Hurtgen Forest. The Pointe du Hoc scenes were especially interesting to me because I actually visited the site on a trip to Normandy.
Summary: This is the Game of the Year version of Call of Duty 2. Much has been said about it, so I would like to give some tips for other gamers: 1. This is the Game of the Year version, and it comes as a 1.2 version. The online servers, however, usually run on 1.0 or 1.3 version. So you might wanna install a 1.3 patch after the installation for online play. 2.
Summary: I have to preface by saying that I mostly play rpg's. It is rare for a fps to hold my attention. Usually I don't even finish them. This game was an exception. Enter the key code from the printed manual to install the game. No online connection is needed (for single player). Play a series of missions. Start as a Russian, then a Brit, and finally as an American. I guess you would have to say the game is linear but the areas are large enough that you can maneuver.
Summary: I received Call of Duty 2 today and was a little concerned about the installation problems some users had talked about. My version included the 2 multi-player maps. I am currently playing on my laptop. If your hardware can run Call of Duty 1, you won't have a problem here even though the graphics, gameplay and sound is better as well as the speed of the game. Since some users complained about installation problems it seems Activision has addressed the issue.
Summary: I bought this game for myself and also my son. Although this game has been out since Nov. 2005, this game is fun to play from both the single player and the multiplayer aspect. The Pros - This game has very good graphics, a very good story line in single player, and the multiplayer is server based with clans which are dedicated to basic stock maps to extreme mods. Today's basic computer will have no problem running the game.
