Summary: A good refinement of the original CoD ethic, with enhanced effects, more constant action, and numerous little touch-ups to the gameplay. The automatic healing system was a bold change, and I think a big improvement. It makes the game a bit easier, but keeps the action steadier by eliminating the need to run around looking for med kits. You really have to play it to see how well it works.
Summary: For the record I have always preferred Call of Duty to Metal of Honor. The weapons in CoD~1 were responded better, the graphics and maps seemed better to me. I knew from the first second I opened this box that I had made a bad mistake and didn't trust the negative reviews here: HALF the game manual was blank. That might be okay for me since I've played FPS's since DOOM but still... from there things got worse. At least the CD-key was intact.
Summary: It looks and sounds good. It takes advantage of the wide screen video modes that graphics cards have been capable of for the last couple of years and CORRECTLY renders the proportions of everything. There are some games that take the easy way out by simply stretching everything. Like the original CoD, it makes great use of a surround sound setup. So far, only Half-Life 2 does graphics and sound better. Now here's why I can't give this game five stars.
Does what it says on the box, but not for very long...

Summary: I've played the orignal COD and almost all of the FP Shooters of the last few years. I got this game for Christmas, and was finished with the single player missions 2 days later, which makes it one of the shortest FPS I have ever played. Having said that it beats Quake 4 hands down for playability. Quake 4 is totally linear, the graphics are average and the AI is completely mindless; in COD2 the AI is some of the best I've seen.
Conclusion: I have this game and yes it is similar to 4, there is a map in 2 and 4 which have to exact layout, all they do is move the map across and put different scenery on it, they should develop more maps, they done this from cod 1 to 2 aswell. they should pull their fingers out.
Conclusion: I have an AMD Quad Core with 4MB memory machine and NVidia 8600 256 MB card. I first got into war games with Brothers In Arms: Road To Hill 30. That was only a few weeks back and gave me a whole new take on what it must have been like to fight in the war ! I had heard the CoD series was considered the best WW2 game so got hold of the demo and loved it. They I found the full game on a pre-owned shelf for less than Â£4 - how could I resist !
Excerpt: Il sequel di Call of Duty viene ritenuto da molti il migliore di tutti. Fu infatti migliorato nettamente di grafica, pur restando invariata l'ambientazione attinente alla seconda guerra mondiale. Ci sono importanti novità nelle modalità di gioco. La prima è il single player e prevede ben tre campagne, la prima in Russia per liberare le città di Mosca e Stalingrado, la seconda è in Normandia, infine abbiamo quella americana. Tutte le campagne sono ...
