Post Call of Duty 2 - Xbox 360

THIS IS MY REVIEW FOR ANOTHER SITE!!! SO FORMAT IS A TAD BIT DIFFERENT!

Call of Duty 2

Publisher: Activision
Developer: Infinity Ward
System: 360
Release: November 15, 2005, US

Story
The story of Call of Duty 2 puts you in the perspective of 1 Russian Soldier, 2 British Soldiers, and 1 American Soldier. The game has great switches between scenarios, from D-Day in the Invasion of Normandy, to the African desert as the British, it is always differing. There isn't much to really say about the actual individual stories of each faction, it is mostly just a bunch of battles with varying situations.

Sound
The sound of this game, to say the least, is excellent. From the distant sounds of mortar fire to planes pouring bullets right over your head. The soldiers of each faction all use correct dialogue for the time and accents. Gun fire also sounds like its real life counterparts. Great all around.

Graphics
In my opinion, this is where Call of Duty 2 really shines, just take a look at this screenshot:



Just take a look at the detail of the soldiers face, and intensity of it all. Here is another screenshot:

Although there were some quirks and bland textures, this game still looks excellent.

Appeal
Tell me, what is there to not like about mowing down hundreds of Germans from your m16 (or whatever you call it) turret and watching them scower for cover. It is quite exhilarating. From climbing of a large cliff during a D-Day and watching your buddies fall from up above you down to the ground below is also exciting. You can make this game even more intense by switching the difficulty over to Veteran, turning this game into something like the Brothers in Arms series.

Gameplay
Really the only problem I have with this game, is the occasional repetition and same animations for shot up soldiers. Although it still sometimes looks nice. And besides the tank missions, almost every level is the same. You either: A. Push forward towards your objective or B. Hold off attacking enemy waves, which can get dull at times. Otherwise it is really fun, just a bit standard at times.

Overall
Truly an epic game, just with occasionally flaws, I highly recommend it. Especially when it is so cheap currently.

I got this game a few days after xmas, maybe not as good as some of the other CoD games but still worth a look and has a good life span.

Good review mate.

If graphics is where a game "really shines", then it isn't a good game.

Or it means that the game was great, but the graphics stood out for them the most
