Conclusion: After playing through the tutorial level of this game (and just that!) I was amazed. I believe a sequel should be made RIGHT NOW! This truly captures the feeling of a tight-knit squad in WWII. The ragdoll physics are a GREAT improvement for console COD games (I was kind of surprised at finding myself meleeing a German through a brick wall.
Conclusion: I think from what I have seen from the original COD to now, this game has made vast improvements. From the screenshots and movies the gameplay looks smooth and solid and unbelievably realistic. The movies also depict rather intelligent AI. As far as storyline, this also seems very solid. As a battle/war game fanatic, I am greatly anticipating the release of both this game and the console to play it on. With that said i feel like an 8.6 may be a little low.
Summary: I love my CoD games, I played this yearsssss ago when they first came out on the PS; decided to get it for my xbox recently.....brings back memories on how cool we thought the graphics were back then. Please note: you NEED to have a Microsoft original HD to play these games.
One of the classic and heavily underrated FPS video games of all time.

Summary: Call of Duty: Big Red One is without a shadow of a doubt one of the best COD games available. By today's standards it may be outdated and may even be considered obsolete by ignoramuses. However even playing it now (2012) it still proves to be one of the best COD games I've ever played. To be clear Big Red One is my second favourite COD game. My first is the original COD. COD 2: Big Red One is a spin-off from the original game: Call of Duty 2.
Summary: It's not all about graphics, and don't forget this game was released in 2005, ok Timesplitters: Future Perfect came out that year and that game's graphics are better than this. But this game is about more than graphics, it's about story etc (alrtight, so was Timesplitters: FP).
Summary: I'm a huge fan of first person shooters and have probably played a good chunk of the games available in this genre on both PS2 and Xbox. In terms of WW2 shooters, this is in my view the best so far and, considering the next generation consoles are here, I can't see anything set to beat this.
