"Ok feel. Backlit feature amazing! Hard to program."
7 December 2011
Pros: The back lit configuration accessibility is easy to use. I was able to learn how to configure the keyboard quickly. I love how you can program the common gamer keys a different color. Functionality far exceeds my expectations. Touch bar = great!
Cons: The feel of the keyboard is somewhat uncomfortable. The keys are unforgiving and not very smooth. Part of the reason why I am writing this is because 8-10 of the keys have become unresponsive.
Summary: I dearly loved the original Call of Duty as well as its expansion pack. Call of Duty 2 takes its predecessor, turns graphics and intensity up to 11, dials back the user interface to make it more console-friendly, and sticks you in the war. The gameplay is excellent stuff, standard WWII FPS fare in all respects, with hordes of enemies and many weapons.
Summary: i bought this game a week after buying MOH: frontline, which, at the time, i thought was incredible. but once i got COD2, i was blown away. constant firefights and all out chaos across a bombed out battlefield is just plain awesome. but what really gets this title is the online multiplayer. i have found myself playing for hours on the same maps and still not getting bored.
Summary: There is no doubt in my mind that Call Of Duty 2 is the most intense and engrossing FPS I've ever played. The best? Well, that's up for debate and it's unanimous that CoD2 makes no effort to innovate the genre but nonetheless, the way the game proceeds at breakneck speed for almost the entire thing makes for barrels of fun. It should be noted that if you like the traditional FPS feature of puzzle solving and tactics, this isn't really for you.
Summary: Call of Duty 2 is the game to get if you want to be put into the shoes of an average soldier in WWII. Either advancing with your fellow comrades-in-arms in a giant charge against blazing machine guns or fleeing down an alley in Africa with your squad-mates firing a few quick shots behind you to slow the oncoming German wave, the experience is yours.
Summary: When I take each level by itself, this is an awesome FPS. Great graphics and gameplay that is truly impressive, as has already been stated in other reviews here. On the basis of each level on its own I would have given this game five stars. But for me, as a complete game, there is still something missing in the overall fun quotient of this effort.
Summary: Good points: -The graphics are good. The game is generally fun. -The levels are bigger and more open than in COD 1. -The long firefights are great. -The intelligence of the enemies is much better than in the first game. In this one, they are somewhat less predictable, and they move around more, which makes it harder to shoot them. -I am glad there are no medkits, but unfortunately I don't really like the recovery system this game uses either.
Very fun game that stays true to "Call of Duty" with new surprises.

Summary: A few years ago, the original "Call of Duty" was released to great reviews and seemingly redefined the entire World War 2 First-Person shooter genre. Fast-forward a few years, and after a great expansion ("United Offensive"), we have ourselves a sequel - Call of Duty 2. The first thing you'll probably notice in Call of Duty 2 is the graphical improvement made over the original game.
Summary: The game and graphics are great but if you like playing online you might be disapointed. The online version does not have punkbuster, meaning servers can't block players with cheats and hacks from joining. This really sucks now that the game has been out for a couple of weeks and there are hacks all over the internet. It kills the online experience if you just want to shoot it out fair and square. With everybody running hacks/cheats you are dead as soon as you spawn.
