Call of Duty 2 is a thinking-gamer's first-person shooter of medium difficulty. While there are many reflexive elements, the game quite often requires you to consider the tactics of the situation in order to survive. While you can probably blow through the game in 10 hours on the regular setting, the more difficult settings require you to be much more thoughtful about your approach to the different scenarios. Your teammates in battle neither finish your fight, nor simply provide enemy fodder, while the enemy AI (artificial intelligence) is quite clever. If you are too meek, you will find yourself pinned down by aggressive fire while the enemy lobs grenades at you until you're decimated.
Unlike the its predecessor, Call of Duty 2 doesn't give you a health bar. Instead, as you are hit by more and more fire, your screen grows increasingly red around the border, and your character begins to grunt and pant. This is your signal that it's time to find some cover in order to recuperate before you continue. Another major improvement is the enhanced smoke grenades, which not only look great but can be used effectively in battle to obscure your path from tanks or machine-gun nests as you make your way to an objective.
While Call of Duty 2 has received an ESRB T (teen) rating -- meaning there are no gratuitous blood and guts splashing all over the screen -- this is still war, and there are enemies that will try to drag themselves to safety after being hit, only to be bludgeoned to a screaming death by your fellow men-at-arms. And like its older brother, Call of Duty 2 offers the standard deathmatch, team deathmatch, capture-the-flag, and search-and-destroy multiplayer modes. However, this version offers a new option called "headquarters," which most closely resembles the "crazy king" version of king-of-the-hill in Halo 2. Shifting headquarter points appear and must be captured in order to start building points, only to be overrun by the other side in order to halt that point gain. This version of the multiplayer mode is not only extremely fun, but it requires teams to adapt on the fly.
Unlike the original, in this sequel you can skip forward from one mission to the next once you've cleared a campaign. The game also auto-detects 16:9 and 16:10 wide-screen ratios, as well as the sometimes tricky 5:4 ratio for LCD monitors. As the user, you can make use of a good set of performance tweaking functions, or you can allow the game to determine the optimal ratio, based on your system. With the addition of actual war footage as introductions to each campaign, and famous war quotes at the end of the scenes, Call of Duty 2 has everything you need to lose yourself in the middle of the biggest war in history of the world. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

You start out as a raw Russian recruit, in the freezing winter of Moscow, trying to learn how to use a rifle and stave off the impending Nazi take-over. You only get a few moments of training before you're sent out into combat to defend your home town.
The graphics are a really nice mix of realistic scenery and helpful gameplay. Items you need will glow gold so that they're easy to find. A compass on your display will point your way to important objectives. Your ammo, health and other indicators are easy to find.
But in the meantime, your main screen graphics are really quite impressive. From the brickwork on the buildings to the smoke-grenade haze, from the uniforms on your friends and enemies, the quality on a HD TV is quite impressive. The widescreen view lets you keep an eye all around you while you move your way through hostile territory. You try to focus while you hear the screams, calls, bullet blasts and grenade booms landing all around you. It's like being in a warzone, which of course it is.
Your teammates are all around you, and they do their best to help you out. Like you, many of them are raw recruits and not very good at things. As you move forward, they get more skilled, as do you. You learn how to pause before aiming, how to use cover and to approach your objective with stealth.
I do wish that you could have more than 8 simultaneous players online during XBox Live. The single player games are great, but of course they don't last forever. When you get through them, the next step is to start playing online to face a "real challenge" with live players.Read more ›
There are a couple of FPSs to think about during Xbox 360's launch. Call of Duty 2 is probably the more exciting and thrilling of these launch titles, boasting beautiful graphics, fast game play and silky smooth controls. If you have HD, it is even better. I never truly understood the difference in picture quality until I saw the game running side by side on a HD and a regular TV and it is remarkable.
The game is broken down into two categories, the single player and the multiplayer. The single player game is intense. It drops you in the middle of three campaigns and things heat up from there. It feels like you are in the middle of a war-torn battlefield. The immersion is great. Your teammates are actually decent, the enemies will pick up and throw back grenades at you that you have already thrown. Sometimes the enemy AI is pretty stupid but overall it is really well implemented. Every mission feels like war is being thrown in your face. Its do or die and the bullets are whizzing by. Its incredibly intense and exciting. Every mission should have you trying to catch your breath by the end.
The sound is amazing, particularly on a surround sound equipped TV. In the single player and in the multiplayer it is incredibly useful. For example, if you are playing multiplayer and hear footsteps behind you but your radar doesn't indicate any friendlies near you, you might want to turn around.Read more ›
