Summary: Not a bad buy for the price if you are looking for a few new campaign missions to play until the next Call of Duty comes out. After playing CoD4 and CoDWaW, the graphics, but more importantly, the AI feels extremely outdated. As such, the infantry missions are very easy.
By no means a bad game but just doesn't quite deliver
2 August 2006
Summary: WW2 shooters never be in short supply and every year more WW2 styled games are released. A couple years ago Call of Duty Finest Hour was released for current systems and it wasn't very good. In 2005 the follow up to Finest Hour was released, Big Red One.
Summary: For the price of $49.99 plus shipping and or tax, you'd expect a game to take someone a few weeks or at least a few days for the hardcore gamers. Call of Duty: Big Red One, took me only about 3 hours to beat on hard. Not saying that the game was easy, but that it was too short.
Summary: Don't get me wrong this game is near perfect. But this game is not as good as i thought it would be. i waited for 3 weeks 4 this. this is a good game but is lacking in many ways. 1. like from previous reviews,it;s tooooooooo short. 2. can be repetative. On g4 they said a.i. is strong.
Summary: I can't say this is better than version I. It is rather slow and it lacks the adrenaline rush of the earlier one. Also the music lacks drama associated with the historical theme of the game. I did not notice any new features to the game. Get it to complete the series but not as a stand alone game.
Summary: The console version of Call of Duty 2 entitled Call of Duty: The Big Red One is simply just not up to the standards of its PC cousin. The best parts of the game occur in the new North Africa campaign.
