This is the grand daddy to call of duty. It was awesome back in the day and has an amazing single player campaign. World War 2 stuff doesn't get much better. I thought I was in a movie. This was ahead of its time.
Renting it now would make the game feel ancient. It's hard to believe how much the games have improved. Like most oldies, there is only 13 achievements, almost all requiring veteran difficulty. It's extremely difficult to get 1000, but if you have the patience it would be quite an accomplishment.

This game and Ghost Recon are the best FPS on the 360 to date. Great controls, visuals, and game play. Call of Duty 2 sports great A.I. the enemy will try to flank you and throw grenades at you if you camp. The difficulty level seems just right and is extremely challenging on the harder difficulty settings. You will get around 10-15 of game play in the single player missions.
Good: Great visuals, Agro A.I., impressive quality sound.

A really good FPS…
Call of Duty 2 is a very good game. It offers realistic shooting, great graphics, nice sound, and fitting controls.
The Good: I’ve been reading some reviews on here and I’ve been seeing that people are comparing this game to Halo 2….to clarify this, this game is NOT like Halo 2, or any Halo for that matter. It is, however a very good FPS.(I say it’s not like Halo because this game is much of a realistic shooter, and Halo is not). The graphics is very good, and the gameplay offers countless hours of playtime. The AI presents a good challenge, sometimes too good, and the game have a few surprise that keeps you entertained throughout. The online mode is almost perfect. The only problem is that you have to find a new room after every game.(which is not bad because you’ll be in a room and in a game in less than a few minutes).
The Bad: Online pay only supports up to eight players – that’s something that could have been improved. Why not 16?
In summary this game offers a really fun experience both online and off. This, along with GRAW, are must own titles for FPS fans.
