4.0 out of 5 stars Call of Duty - fun and frustrating, January 11, 2011
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Call of Duty: War Chest (Includes Call of Duty, Call of Duty: United Offensive Expansion Pack, & Call of Duty 2) (Video Game)
First, let me say that I have played a fair number of WWII FPS in my time, dating back to some really old games 20-25 years ago. The COD series is definitely one of the better ones, though there are some moments in the game which are frustratingly difficult. Half the time, you breeze through the missions like a cakewalk, only to slam into a scenario that leaves you wondering if it is even possible to win without a hack.

The only other frustrating part is that the CDs on this game were mislabeled. The one listed as COD 1 was actually the disc for COD2, and vice versa, which took me a while to figure out why the product codes wouldn't let me install. Then, I couldn't get the game to start, because it kept giving me an error. After searching several forums, I found out that the CD was missing a DLL file that was needed to work on 64bit Windows 7. I found the DLL from a download site, installed it, and the game worked fine.

The graphics are dated on the original, but the expansion pack and COD II are pretty close to the image quality you see on most new games now. Overall, if you are a WWI FPS fan, this is clearly one series you need to add to your collection.
