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.
THE best FPS in gaming history... Period... NO argument

Summary: Definately an AWESOME game. But let me tell all of you something. DONT buy this product for the campaign mode (or adventure mode, etc...) buy it for the online multiplayer!!! YOU can play locally in your city, or ANYWHERE around the world!!! An also addition to this game is that there are over 200 severs for online!!! and the best part... the ONLINE multiplayer is... FREEEEE!!!! NO FEES... EVER!!! thats right... FREE... FOREVER!!
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: Make no mistake, this game rocks. It isn't ground breaking but other fans of Call of Duty are really just looking for more of the same. I've played it several times now and there are improvements from the previous games: The enemy AI is a lot better and your comrades actually do much of the shooting. The enemy also doesn't do exactly the same moves every time you replay. Instead of from point A to B, the missions do have more than one way to skin the cat.
Summary: I'm a huge fan of WWII shooters, and if you are too, you should buy this game without reservation. It's loads of fun, and you play different battles for a change. I'll list some good and bad below. Bad Stuff: 1) Short: As other reviews have noted, I was surprised by the short game time. I wasn't paying attention, but I beat in two days (let's say 10 hours of play, tops). After finishing the epic Half Life 2 lately, this was pretty bad.
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: Great game. Lots of fun. One of the best games out there. However, it isn't as fun as the previous release (United Offensive.) One of the most enjoyable things to do in the first two games was to find a nice safe (relatively) spot and break out the sniper rifle. Great fun to just sit back and pick off the unsuspecting Natzis one by one as quick as you could line them up. No more. Trying to snipe now is one of the most deadly of actions 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.
