Summary: I bought this game from a local game store near me. I've played COD:Finest Hour when I was a kid on PS2. So I figured I would give this game a shot. Now it's probably because I have an HDTV. But the 480p looks amazing on my television. The graphics for a original XBOX game are awesome and really stand out! This game has a lot of fun and challenging missions. I like the modern warfare type games, but I will always love my WWII FPS games the most.
Summary: i got this game when i got my first xbox(2005). that was my favorite game to play because it never got boring to me. u get to kill on land,air,and in vehicles. the only thing i would change to this game is the graphics and that the online could be played on the xbox 360, and still had lots of gamers plying online on it. the last thing i would change would be the aiming layout, i dont like clicking the right thumbstick to aim, so i hip-fire when i play this game.
Summary: This is a great game! It's not as good as the first one though; that was a classic. This one is the second best of the first 3 games! It has a good story line and the graphics are good. One thing that I don't like though that I noticed is Sniper rifles. For instance in the last level the dragons teeth they give you a chance to pick up a sniper rifle. The sniper rifle is a Scoped kar 98. When you shoot someone it is a 1 shot kill no matter where you shoot them.
Summary: I came to love this game as I progressed. I thought the multiple campaigns were a genius idea. The graphics got hazy with the explosions but with everything else it was actually the best first person shooter I've played in a while. The graphics made it feel like i was part of the action. This is a game that will still be being played in a couple of years. The weapons were probably my favorite part of this game.
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.
