Scrapland Review

IGN Entertainment
21 February 2005
  • Conclusion: Scrapland is one of those few games that meets or exceeds the vision set forth in the pre-production phase. From an artistic standpoint, Scrapland is a true achievement, especially since each and every part of this universe had to be fabricated from scratch, with scrap. The action elements are a bit on the bland side and, although implemented in a unique way, don’t make this a true gamer’s game.

  • Conclusion: THE VERDICT: Call of Duty: Finest Hour is mediocre in virtually ever category. Bland single player gameplay, and run of the mill online options all sewn together by graphics and sound that come in slightly under par of the other war games on the market mean that this one calling is more as a solid rental then anything else.

  • Excerpt: Similar to its PC big brother and the subsequent expansion pack, Finest Hour’s single player mode focuses upon three separate campaigns of World War II. The Russian campaign surrounds the battle for Stalingrad and its subsequent outlying areas. The British campaign focuses upon the North African battles of the Desert Rats, and the Americans end the single player with the American capture of Aachen and subsequent push into Western Germany.

Call of Duty: Finest Hour

Game Over Online
7 December 2004
  • Excerpt: The glut of World War II titles on PCs were quickly overshadowed by last year’s award winning Call of Duty. Up to that point, most WWII titles focused upon traditional shooter mechanics: In particular, I’m talking about the “one man against the world” concept that is not only unrealistic, but relatively irresponsible to the brave men that fought the battles.

  • Conclusion: It’s a shame to have to bad mouth a game that obviously has a lot of passion behind it, as opposed to being a cookie cutter ripoff, but Call of Duty: Finest Hour simply isn’t up to scratch. Everyone and their dog has a WWII game out, and the efforts made to make Finest Hour stand out from the pack actually work against it. With it’s splintered plot, middle of the road visuals, and heavily scripted gameplay, this is decent quality, but not a must buy.
  • Pros: Plenty of variety in the action stakes., Call of Duty franchise is a good mark of quality.
  • Cons: Too scripted, multiple storyline approach doesn’t work, Doesn’t do enough with the hardware

Too much of the same thing?

  • 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

18 December 2013
  • Excerpt: "Call Of Duty: Finest Hour on konsoleille kyhätty versio loistavasta toiseen maailmansotaan sijoittuvasta PC-pelistä nimeltä Call Of Duty. Finest Hour on varmastikin parasta WWII-räiskintää mitä konsoleilla on tällä hetkellä tarjota, joskin lähinnä siitä syystä ettei muutamista kilpailijoista ole vastustajiksi. Yleisesti peli on keskitason yläpuolella oleva räiskintä, joka ei tarjoa mitään mullistavaa yksinpelikokemusta.
  • Pros: + Ok äänimaailma, + Ok tekoäly, + Paikoitellen ihan Ok yksinpeli..
  • Cons: - ..Paikoitellen tylsä, - Pelin tallennus, - Visuaalisesti vaisu esitys

  • Excerpt: Hverken Men of Valor eller Shellshock: Nam ’67 leverede helt den vare, vi forventede os af dem. Skal alle julesæsonens historiske first person shooters i år være skuffelser, eller hjælper det, at handlingen denne gang flyttes fra Vietnam-krigen til Anden Verdenskrig? Call of Duty: Finest Hour gør i hvert fald et forsøg. Der er udkommet en del historiske first person shooters til Xbox her i julesæsonen 2004.
