Summary: I'm a veteran COD player who purchased the original COD when it first came out and then every other game since. Then with upgrades to hardware, software and operating systems, the old originals became unplayable.... Till this came out. I purchased it in hopes that I would once again be able to play the original titles I fell in love with and YES! I have had an absolute BLAST replaying the games that made this franchise a success.
Summary: Obviously this game is great, it is the one that started it all. Anyone who says that the game doesn't work on Win7 is wrong. In order to make it compatible I needed to add an ATI dll to the CoD game folder. After I did that, it ran fine. So it might not run out of the box, but it took me only a few minutes to fix the issue. Also, this game is very much like Call of Duty 2.
Summary: This one must truly be as excellent as he says because all his free time is between this game and the Brothers in Arms Collection. Guess I should be grateful you don't include a lead soldiers kit with them. I now have to set an appointment to see him!
Summary: I was shocked by how much I learned! I got to see weapons I didn't know existed! The German FG-42 w/1x optic, the Russian SVD autoloader. Colors, graphics, easy to play and tolerable at the hightest difficulty levels. Excellent AI. Characters aren't so predictable, and wander around like real people. Warning! At times, they can learn from you, and adjust their tactics! This varies. It good, I liked it. The better the machine, the better the game play.
Summary: These games are classics and they set the stage for the current blockbuster Call of Duty titles. The graphics look dated by today's standards, but it doesn't matter one bit. Each game is great in it's own right. All three campaigns are way more fun then the current crop of Call of Duty campaigns. These games were meant for single player, unlike today's CoD titles where multiplayer is the focus and the campaigns are an afterthought.
