Summary: I liked the story mode, but the graphics were horrible. I have every COD game ever made, and even the very first ones have better graphics than this. It was a very good story tho, and I would probably recommend it to a friend, but Black Ops and Modern Warfares are better, but it's not a waste of money.
Summary: This was a good shooter. It has a great story with very realistic characters. While you're playing you really do begin to bond with the squad. They also have a good choice of weapons including the ww2 classics such as the Thompson, M1 Garand, BAR, M1 Carbine, Bazooka, and the Springfield. Sadly the gunshots and explosions aren't what I hoped they would be.
Conclusion: Ok here's the thing this year!2k have produced the best game out of 2k7 and live 07.ea have done a pretty good job, it's good but not great!it feels a bit sluggish. nba live 07's gameplay isn't as fluent as nba 2k7, not as fast paced as 2k7.the gameplay isn't poor but it isn't brilliant!it can be fun,but i would resort back to 2k7 on realism,audio and innovation!.nba live 07 is fun but something is lacking in the gameplay terms.
Tony Hawk’s American Wasteland Reader Review - 8.3

29 January 2006
Conclusion: So, Here we are again, the time of year for another Tony Hawk game. Except this time, it's on the Xbox 360, and it's online. Let me preface this review with the following caveat: I've only played the 360 version, and, if you have a 360, it is the only version you should play, as it is the best of the lot. However, if you have plaed THAW on the Xbox or any other system, than be for-warned that the 360 version follows the same gameplay and storyline.
Conclusion: First off, it must be said that Big Red One is a much, much better effort this time out for the X-Box than the disaster of Finest Hour. Much of the frustration is gone, the save checkpoints are now much closer together, you can choose a difficulty level so that you don't end up being killed every thirty seconds as in the original game.
Conclusion: I have played all of the other games in the Call of Duty series and ultimately I feel that Call of Duty 2: Big Red One is a major improvement upon its predecessor Finest Hour. Despite the fact that its better than Finest hour it still leaves me feeling like something is missing. Big Red One is hardly realistic, and just doesnt seem anywhere near as intense as the Call of Duty games for PC.
This is not the same game as the original call of duty 2

Summary: Although I hadn't realised that this particular version of Call of Duty 2 is not the same as the original game, nevertheless it is a good game and it was my fault for not checking this properly. As a left handed person though, I was very disappointed to discover I was unable to change the settings on my controller to reflect this as there is no option for "lefties" and consequently I find it very difficult to shoot with my right hand accurately and quickly.
Summary: I bought this when I found out it was backwards compatible and wanted something to wet my WWII FPS appetite until MOH Airborne comes out. I'll start by saying that the graphics are some of the best current-gen (or last-gen, or whatever) graphics I've seen. The gameplay is good and solid, apart from the annoyingly weak 30 calibre machine guns. Also there were too many of those dull missions where you get stuck in a tank or on a mounted machine gun.
