4.0 out of 5 stars Review for the Alaska Apple Users Group April 7, 2005
Platform for Display:Mac
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
A while back I had the chance to review one of the best World War II shooters on the market, Call of Duty. Now I get to re-visit the title in the form of it's expansion pack, Call of Duty: United Offensive; recently released for the Macintosh.

United Offensive brings more of the same awesome game as well as a few new goodies. In summary, it brings 13 new single player missions that span the alliance, 11 new multiplayer missions, vehicle-mounted weapons, and mobile heavy machine guns.

The new missions are most welcome! Though separate from the original campaigns, they carry you through cohesive strands of the war as seen by American, British, and Soviet perspectives. Your first mission has you fighting in the epic Battle of the Bulge for the 506th PIR, which was recently made more famous by the HBO mini-series, Band of Brothers.

The added equipment is a welcome addition too. The new weapons and vehicles are well balanced and provide a more realistic depth of tactical options in both single and multi-player modes. Being able to relocate heavy machine guns and shoot from the back of jeeps, for example, make things much more interesting at times.

This was not a hastily developed expansion. The maps are just as carefully built and feature trenches, cities, forests, and even more destructible terrain - or at least it seemed that way when a tank destroyed a boulder I was using as cover the other day!

One thing is for sure, air strikes, tanks, and mortars play a more active role in United Offensive. Some objectives have you taking out German anti-tank weapons so tanks can move in, mortars often stop your advance, and P-47s and Stukas swoop overhead much more often.

5.0 out of 5 stars I skipped my Calc 221 final December 12, 2004
Platform for Display:Mac
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
First off, I skipped my Calc 221 final because this game came the morning of my final and I forgot the time and played right through it.

This is such a great sequel to the original. More Weapon, Vehicles, Levels, and it's all comptible with the original Call of Duty. The graphics are amazing. I don't have a great computer (iMac, 1.0 Ghz G4, 768 Mb RAM), but I can play on the best graphics and they are incredible. Halo has better graphics, but only if you have a top of the line computer.

So much is new. There are about ten new guns, plus flamethrowers, two new grenades, and rocket lauchers. There are 11 new multiplayer maps, plus all the old ones, and so many custom maps that are easy to download. In UO, you can drive the tanks and jeeps, very cool. The best part though is the improved gameplay, it's much more realistic. You can run, cook-off grenades, shell-shock, and so much more. And the sniper rifle actually looks like a scope, with dirt on the lens.

The Multiplayer is alot harder because you get more serious gamers buying UO. there are no "untitled soldier"'s run around waiting to get shot. Everyone has played the game, or they wouldn't have bought UO. There are more game types in UO, I particularly like Capture the Flag. The multiplayer maps take a while to learn because they're so fricken huge. Not like Battlefield 1942, but there is actually stuff on the levels unlike in BF 1942. You really need to take a jeep or tank in Capture the Flag to get to the other side of the level.

If you got Call of Duty and found it fun, you will definitey like UO. It's cheaper than the original and improves the gameplay so much more. Check it out.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Graphics and Realism, Online Play Erratic April 10, 2005
By CMOS

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
For a long time I was a Medal of Honor (MOHAA) junky, particularly the online cooperative team games. I was a little skeptical when my peers told me that "this is MOHAA done the way it should have been done from the start". The hype is definitely warranted.

This game is so much more realistic in terms of the graphics and gameplay (what happens when you take a bullet, etc) that there's really very little comparison. It does require pretty hefty hardware (I recommend a G5 or dual G4 and a Radeon or GeForce card with at least 64MB of VRAM. 128 is better), but if you've got the hardware it's a blast.

The one thing I'm not impressed with is the online play. While the setup for online servers and such is more flexible than MOHAA, certain game types seem to be very laggy for some reason, even on 4mbps cable. At first I thought it might be my system but for whatever reason the ping and general performance you get from this game seems to be a little erratic (even when all other online tasks work flawlessly for me).

YMMV, but I thought it was worth mentioning. Still very much worth the price of admission though. Single player game by itself is worth it. :)

3.0 out of 5 stars Requires too many resources July 27, 2005
Platform for Display:Mac
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I have an iBook G4 1.2GHz with 768MB RAM. The original Call of Duty ran fine. The expansion set, even with the lolwest graphics settings, does not run well. Picture jumps too much making it impossible to play, especially during big battle scenes.

5.0 out of 5 stars This game rules. You must buy it. January 30, 2005
Platform for Display:Mac
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
If you like the original, you'll love united offensive. My only complaint (and this goes for both the original and the expansion) is that they don't last long! Perhaps I'm exceptionally geeky and I spend WAY too much time playing games, but it seems to me that I am finished with all the levels just when I'm getting into it. Other than that, it was some of the best gameplay I've ever experienced... while it lasted. I think this one was even a little bit more challenging than the first (you'll see... and you'll get SLIGHTLY frustrated). Now stop reading this and go out and buy it!

While I loved the original, the expansion pack has proven to be too slow to be any fun at all. Slow FPS means frustration and death. I am running a high end G5.
