First of all, the plusses, it's a brilliant game. You start the game in a little boat in the fog, and you slowly progress across a lake, and a burining stalingrad, with explosions, bullets flying, fighters strafing you all scaring the hell out of your comrades. An officer is in the boat yelling at you, shooting deserters and probably going to end up doing nothing in the battle. The actual first level is a bit slow to start, as you start without a gun, and you have to follow your sergeant. You follow him to a refinery and the first problems set in, light. My TV is quite old and the remote died long ago. This means i can't change the lighting as there is no setting for this in the game, and you can see nothing!
When you get to the right place you finaly get a rifle, and you get to shoot some of the 6th army. About time. You then follow your sergeant past a giant assualt on a couple of machine guns by about 100 allies, who all die. You go round the side and take it out.
Then it starts getting a bit complicated. After doing this you get the next level, (Find out what it is yourself) and a sniper helps you, you finish that level and you are the sniper. It can get a bit confusing following which characters you are.
The first campaign, the Eastern front, is brilliant. You get to be several russian soldiers and it all revolves around the battle of the bulge.
After that you get to go to north africa as the british, which is quite short. After that you go to AAchen, the first german city to be captured, and where I'm stuck.
I have one paticular problem with this. Invincble Nazis.Read more ›
If you have played Medal of Honour on the XBox or PC, then this game will be very familiar to you. It's practically the same game but set in different theaters. Little or no AI means that the enemy will rush you and get shot; grenade distance is hard to judge, and at times it is hard to know what your next objective is. The PC version of CoD on the other hand, is exceptional! So I have to say that although it is nice to have this game on the XBox, it's nothing next to its PC big brother.
Graphics get a low 5/10 from me; sound 6/10; and control 6/10. It has lots of levels and online play (this is probably its best component), but for me this is a flop (unless you have a PS2- in which case it is probably ground breaking). Next to Ghost Recon 2 and Halo 2, this game looks seven years old...
You can, in Call of Duty, play as first a Russian, then a British and then American soldier. So there is a little more variety - you fight in a wider range of theatres and specific historical battles (including Stalingrad, desert warfare with Popski's Private Army, Remagen Bridge, the Bulge and Aachen - though with little variety - no bad weather, no night missions) and each time you play as different characters, including, interestingly, a leader in an exclusively black (as in African-American) tank group. There was, in the missions involving Chuck Walker and Benny Church, a feel that you're part of a small unit of characters with some familiarity and continuity.
Kit-wise you get to use a large range of firearms and other toys from all sides including Panzerschrecks, gammon bombs, teller mines, Brens, BARs etc. but curiously no bazooka or PIAT. You get also to operate a T34 and a Sherman and ride shotgun in a jeep. The controls are OK if you accept that you're playing on a console; FPS games like Call of Duty really need a mouse for manouvreability, using the thumbstick on the Xbox gamepad makes turning to face - and aiming at - enemies either excruciatingly slow or uncontrollably fast.Read more ›
* The weapons in the game are difficult to use with any accuracy and seem to do little damage. Plus, enemies go through an outrageously long death animation whle still standing, meaning you invariably waste ammunition on dead-but-still-standing targets.
* You 'run' at the speed of a snail. Not only that, but you freeze momentarily whenever you are shot. This means that if you are caught out in the open, you have no chance of surviving unless you are carrying plenty of medkits. Automatic weapons will virtually freeze you in place as they eat away at your health and you are unable to move at more than a crawl due to the repeated hits.
* The game's difficulty curve is not at all smooth, it makes sudden leaps which lead to huge levels of frustration; almost the entire second half of the game is completely unfair.
* Only one checkpoint at most (sometimes none) in missions which can last up to half an hour.
* Idiotic AI of your squadmates makes them virtually redundant. You're in desperate need of cover while they're stuck on the scenery.Read more ›

this is quite an old game that's really showing its age now. Was probably ground-breaking when it came out but is really dated.Published 7 months ago by William
I thought that the first cod was going to be really bad but it was such a excellent campaign I bought it to complete my cod collectionPublished on 30 Sept. 2013 by Percy
Never got to play this game as it wasn't comparable with the xbox360 even though it stated on the website that it was. Not the sellers fault though.Published on 5 Aug. 2013 by JULIE CRONE
