Call of Duty: Finest Hour

Game Over Online
7 December 2015
  • Excerpt: The glut of World War II titles on PCs were quickly overshadowed by last year’s award winning Call of Duty.

  • Conclusion: There’s something extremely appealing about firing off the antiquated weapons in the game, which are often more interesting than most of the over-designed space-aged blasters. I love the urgency of a slow-to-load rifle, the way your fumbling and learned cadence strikes a unique tension in the...

  • Excerpt: The Call of Duty series made a name for itself by having the player assume the role of multiple characters throughout a game, instead of sticking to a single one. In some ways this helps build excitement within the game, but other ways it can really detract and cause what could be a good gaming...

Call of Duty: Finest Hour

ActionTrip
3 December 2004
  • Conclusion: This game has committed a cardinal sin, and that sin is mediocrity. Nothing is special about it, and while it does have a fun, cinematic feel and some nicely featured historical missions, it simply does not feel memorable. Maybe I shouldn't have compared it to the original, but I have. Sue me.
  • Pros: The campaign is well-written and fun at times, the missions can be involving and intense; multiplayer offers a satisfactory experience;
  • Cons: Inconsistent weapon control, hand grenade bugs; short campaign; awful enemy AI; it is hard to tell how much damage you deal; occasional frame rate issues.

  • Conclusion: If you really can't get Call of Duty on PC, and are desperate for some of that World War II action…I'd tell you to go get a copy of Brothers in Arms, though if that doesn't ice your muffin, consider Finest Hour.

Call of Duty: Finest Hour Review

Eurogamer
2 December 2004
  • Conclusion: All of which is, frankly, a bit of a disappointment. We had hoped that the talent which created Call of Duty might shine through in this console version, and re-ignite our once brightly burning passion for saving the free world from the Nazi menace.
