5.0 out of 5 stars Gameplay still rules.. November 11, 2003
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Game of the Year
Call of Duty (CoD) is a true sequel to Medal of Honour: Allied Assault. If you have played MoHAA, you'd know that it is atmospheric and exhilarating. Who can forget the Omaha Beach level? If you think MoHAA is good, wait till you try CoD.
There are 3 campaigns in CoD though you don't get to choose which to start first. You start as Private Martin (USA) and play through a few levels.. the most exciting for me is to hold a particular bridge from invasion. Later you play as Evans a British SAS. The 3rd campaign, the best I have seen by far, is playing as a Russian soldier.
The Russian campaign is an exact depiction of one part from the movie "Enemy of the Gates". In the movie, the Russian troops fight to take back Starlingrad. Any Russians who retreated will be killed by their own soldiers. This was depicted exactly in one of the levels in CoD. Lots of soldiers swarming from the boat up the hills with just one gun and one ammo clip - almost like MoHAA's Omaha but more atmospheric and much more exciting.
Graphics-wise, CoD uses Quake 3 engine. It is a bit dated as compared to the today's new generation graphics engine but in my opinion, the graphics served it purpose. I owned a Pentium 3 with Geforce 4 card and CoD runs like a dream. It is games like CoD (and recently, Max Payne 2) which convinced me that game content and gameplay are what matters most. Not the graphics! Some games have excellent graphics but lack content. These are the type of games I'd install and uninstall in less than 10 minutes.
The world in CoD is so lifelike it's scary. The AI is excellent. Your team mates and enemies fight like real soldiers. Bullets flew all over the screen and you can see the traces of them .. or hear them - sometimes I had to "duck" in front of my PC just to avoid them - kinda silly but it shows how into the game I was.
All in all, an excellent game!!! A definite must-get!

5.0 out of 5 stars If you liked MOH, you'll love this game... November 8, 2003
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Game of the Year
I downloaded the Demo game and played it all night long. It was terrific. The following morning, I went out and bought the game. True to its ratings, it IS an excellent game. I would compare it to MOH almost exactly. And contrary to what previous gamers wrote, the snipers ARE extremely accurate as are guards, when you play in the "Veteran" or difficult mode. I rated MOH highly and I do likewise with this game. It's costly, but worth it. The only downside I can see with this game, is that it's short. I started playing it at 4PM in the afternoon and finished it at 4AM. Yeah, it's that addictive...and fun. You can save anytime you want and you can play at varying levels of difficulty. I found a few minor bugs in the game, but still, nothing that made me cuss out the designers... The controls are great, the graphics are pretty darn good, not excellent, but good. I just wish it was ten times longer. One other thing I have to say I was a bit disappointed with, was the multiplayer online thing. It could be me, but I don't see the sense in it. I tried it a couple times and it's kind of boring... The single player mode is much more exciting and fun. Now, to see Vietnam in this kind of realism... Payback... To sum up, the game is well worth the money and a lot of fun. I highly recommend it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun Polished Game but Nothing New for PC Gaming Vets January 28, 2004
By Chris
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Game of the Year
WWII shooters have taken the PC gaming market by storm. With the huge success of titles such as Medal of Honor, Wolfenstein and Battlefield 1942, one more game saw fit to see its way into the competition - Call of Duty! If you'd like to know how Call of Duty plays, I have a quick question: Did you play Medal of Honor Allied Assault? If so, the same team of developers worked on Call of Duty so you may notice a striking resemblance in gameplay. Multiplayer is very similar with most servers dominated by single death objective matches so if you have a low attention span and don't like waiting for a game to end after your early death, I'd recommend a game like Wolfenstein instead where respawning is a normal routine in multiplayer. As usual, in order to play on the best maps, you'll need a high speed connection such as DSL or cable. If you're only purchasing Call of Duty for the singleplayer campaign, don't fret because the campaign is loads of fun and truly impressed me with some of the script sequences planned out for my virtual platoon buddies. Unlike Medal of Honor, you arrive via parachute (instead of storming the beaches) and combat centers around your platoon most of the game so there's always plenty of lieutenants barking orders and fellow privates forgetting to duck. Unfortunately, while the singleplayer campaign is fun, it's pretty short. It's not as long as other campaigns in games such as Medal of Honor and Half-Life. If you can't play online, my advice would be to wait for the price to drop because the singleplayer campaign will be over before you know it leaving you with nothing else to do. Overall, I enjoyed Call of Duty. I'm a WWII buff and a fan of PC first-person shooters, so this game was right up my alley but it probably didn't entertain me as long as other shooters. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars TRY THIS, PRONTO. January 27, 2004
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Game of the Year
Warning: Call of Duty may keep you glued to your screens for a LOT longer than you may have bargained for. It's bloody addictive.
Things I love, no, adore!, about the game:
(1) Graphics are mindblowing. There are places you could be forgiven for thinking you were on the sets of Black Hawk Down or The Pianist...the scenery of Europe (in WWII) is spookily elaborate. Very, very authentic atmosphere.
(2) Ammo is fascinating, a host of machine guns, grenades, rifles, and other arms from around that time. Weapons and nations are correctly linked. The best thing though -- the ability to grab just about everything you can see in the battlefield....low on ammo? Shoot the next soldier you set your eyes on, and grab his MP40 sub-machine gun. Beaut!
(3) It is NOT very resource intensive on your PC, and if you have a half-decent video card, it'll rock. (Is Urisoft listening?)
(4) The movement assigned to human characters is top-notch. You can crouch, jump, dodge bullets etc...all with easy and pleasantly responsive WASD controls /mouse movements. (Tip: crouching is slower but safer especially when in the middle of a shootout. The game does not really allow you to run, AFAIK.)
(5) Have played Battlefield '42 before but the plotline development in Call of Duty is something to beat. There is a great variety of mission types which keeps it from getting boring. The game bills itself as having three distinct single-player campaigns: for Americans, for British, and one for the Russians, but I found this is not true. You do get to play a number of exciting missions from the perspectives of each of these allied forces, and each one takes place in a different part of Europe. (I highly highly recommend the Russian missions)
All in all, this is a game you must get your hands on pronto if you haven't already. And be prepared to be playing it for a while!
