NOT NEXT GEN

i am a FPS games fanatic but for some reason i've never been a fan of this franchise or any other WWII/ real historical war games. but i still try them every time a new one comes out. i guess you could say that i prefer shooting zombies or aliens or any shooter games that has a sci fi or scary theme. you might say that my opinion would be biased now that i've said all of this. but my opinion is not going to be about the story or gameplay. its about this game crossing the next gen console particularly the ps3. im not going to sugar coat it so ill just say it. it looks very PS2-ish! the graphics are so last gen! the only next gen that it has is the tilt control when bashing enemies that are close. besides that, its not at all different from the previous ones that has been released on PS2. but for those who has followed this series, its a must to have this game. just dont expect to see something spectacular graphicwise.

This is the first Call of Duty game that I have actually played start to finish and I guess it was pretty good. I really enjoyed the gameplay with the different weapons, jeep driving and best of all, tank driving. I played it on normal and it wasn't too hard, there were some places I had trouble on but no more than a couple of tries to get it done. However, I did not like the use of the six-axis controller at all. When you plant charges or bombs, you have to turn the controller in a upside down motion and even by the end of the game I hadn't completely figured it out. Also the storylines were pretty bad. You hop from US to British to Polish and none of them were entertaining and you couldn't skip the movie. Finally, the online gameplay really sucks. You die almost instantly and there is almost no one playing it so don't even bother playing online. But that doesn't really matter because the graphics are pretty great and the almost non-stop shooting makes for a good time. So, rent it, do not buy it, and enjoy a day or so of fighting the Germans from various points of view.

This game has awesome detail you won't believe your eyes. I'm an army vet and I loved all the hiding places where you could snipe the enemy from. This game is ferocious because it hits every point in war. This is the best. You will have fear in some points but once you think your strategy through you will be OK. Great game I salute the creators of this beast!!!
