Summary: If you like first-person shooters set in World War II, then you'll probably like Call of Duty. It has very nice graphics, good squad combat, good level design, and runs well if you have an upper-midrange system like mine. And-oh yes-it's much like Medal of Honor. If you've played Medal of Honor: Allied Assault, then you should have a good idea what Call of Duty is like.
Summary: I played Medal of Honor Allied Assault (MOHAA) and the expansion Spearhead. MOHAA made me love FPS war games. Call of Duty (COD) has a lot of things that I wished MOHAA had when I was playing it. COD allows you pick up any type of weapon in the game including the enemy's. It handles the supply of ammunition much better by letting you take the German weapons and take their ammunition as you kill them.
Summary: If Call of Duty was a person, it would be a king amongst men. What Call of Duty does so well, it does with style. There are 3 areas where Call of Duty truly shine. 1) Call of Duty is all about atmosphere - The game play of Call of Duty is well paced, the scripted events change the gameplay, the voice acting is top notch, the screen blur effect is perfect at capturing the high intensity moments, and the accuracy of the actual events allows a seemless tie in with WWII.
Summary: I just finished this game and want to share the pros and cons (as I see it) so that you potential buyers know what to expect. The only thing I haven't done yet is play Multiplayer, so that could obviously change your outlook. That being said... Pros - I was impressed with the game. The graphics, sound, and overall feel were incredibly well done. Whether popping off a stolen Luger or manning a stationary machine gun, the intensity was just plain sweet.
Summary: I am not sure if you can ever get enough of good games, but the first person shooter market seems to be perilously close to becoming oversaturated. With so many excellent titles in so short a time, it could be easy to become desensitized to a certain genre of game. Fortunately, Call of Duty (hereafter COD) is a superb World War II shooter which falls short of being a classic only because of its extreme brevity.
Summary: I really enjoyed playing this game. The only criticism I would make is that it's a bit shorter than I'd expected. A few more hours' worth of gameplay would have been just right. This game is second only to IronStorm in my opinion.
Excerpt: Call of duty came as a refreshing game compared to the Medal of honor games, while in Medal of honor you usually fight alone or whit one or two allies in Call of duty the entire platoons backing you up makes you feel you're just a soldier, the game takes you trough famous battles and world war 2 scenes as seen in movies like its nothing, like in the Russian levels you start out like the landing scene from Enemy at the gates and a level or two later you're smack in the...
