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.
This is truly one of the best games I've played. The realizm is spectacular, and the AI doesn't do the same repetative dance. What it lacks in multiplayer, it more than makes up for in campaign. With stunning graphics, surround sound capability, great AI, and wonderful interface, this game puts the most realistic shooters out there to shame. If you've got an HDTV and surround sound, you'll love this game. It includes all of the major battles of WWII, with great realism, and storyline that really puts you in the game. Veteran mode increases the realism by actually making you human; a bullet or two can put you down, and the AI has accuracy like the highly trained german troops they are. Superior tactics and grenade placements are neccisary to complete Veteran mode. - My only complaint is the multiplayer wich I never really got into, the maps were decent, but the sniper rifles were way too versatile to be fair. It doesn't take much to dominate the multiplayer with just a sniper rifle (one shot kill), even in close-range combat.
