Summary: First things first: I know most of the other reviewers here have said it, but it's worth pointing out one more time - the COD games on the PC are fantastic, far better than the Medal Of Honor series, mainly due to the excellent way they recreate the loud chaos of war going on around you. This element is the one thing that 'COD Finest Hour' manages to replicate pretty well for XBox. The sound is defeaning, explosions and gunfire are all around you..
A historically accurate game, ruined by infuriating features

Summary: Im reviewing this game, the actual game, as it is out already in North America, and thats where I am at the mo! Well, I rented it, and played it, as I am rather fond of WWII shooters. The first level involving Russian forces storming pillboxes etc, was quite involving. The attention to detail over weapon sounds and the overall look of battle scenes and authentic uniforms, is very close to productions like 'Band Of Brothers' etc.
Summary: What can i say, awkward controls, artificial intelligence with no intelligence, no freedom to roam, no apparent contact when shooting at the enemy (untill they fallover), a medal of honour rip-off to be truthfull - and they where bad enough. The levels basically consist of you following other soldiers running around like headless chickens, I can't even be bothered to finish it.
Summary: This game has great potential, but does not live up to what you expect from the game. The biggest problem is every time you get killed you start from ages away from where you died so you end up repeating missions time and time again and get so sick of it you just stop playing the game. It takes all the fun out of it and it ends up being a chore. Whoever's idea it was to make the game this way needs shot , take note of other great games like halo, with checkpoints.
Summary: Im a great fan of call of duty i have the 2 pc versions and loved it great game. So having finnished both of them i today got finest hour this game is good with the graphics but thats all the controls are terrible and the gameplay is really slow when you shoot your opposition they seem to die in slow motion i woulnt recomend this title to a pc call of duty fan its a huge disopiontment
Summary: After playing Call Of Duty on the PC I expected this to be a thoroughly exciting and involving game but i was sadly wrong. Bad Points are: 1. The game is far too short( I completed it in about three hours) 2. Easy difficulty is pointless, you could do it with your eyes closed. 3. The missions are predictable and very linear. 4. Friendly A.I is poor( they run infront of their own tanks and often get you stuck between them and an angry German brandishing a MP40) 5.
