Summary: The only reason I don't give this a higher rating is that while playing the game, the video goes awry. This does not make play impossible, but does take away from the the fun. This video problem is limited to this game.
Summary: Title says it all. I really enjoyed this game the first run through. It's cinematic and engaging and challenging. The second time around was no fun at all because everything is the same, I mean exactly the same down to the timing of the attacks and 'surprises'. Sorry, can't recommend this.
Summary: Call of Duty is a decent game by all accounts. I have played many, many, many video games over the years and this one is about average in my estimation. I found the controls to be somewhat frustrating at times, and the plot was rather lame (world war 2 again???).
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...
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.
Summary: if you own fear or quake 4 you know what im talking about... this game was not as good as all the hype.... go get quake 4 or fear... bot were far better than cod2.... i stopped [playing this game after 4 missions... too repetitive... find cover shoot.... find cover....
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.
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.
