Product Description

Product Description

Call of Duty is an intense first-person action game that allows players to experience the movie-like intensity and gripping combat of World War II as never before--through the eyes of ordinary soldiers, fighting as part of a squad through the chaos of battle.

Developed by Infinity Ward, which is comprised of over 20 individuals who developed Medal of Honor: Allied Assault, including all the production leads, Call of Duty delivers the gritty realism and cinematic intensity of WWII's most epic battlefield moments--from the perspective of citizen soldiers and unsung heroes representing an alliance of countries, who together helped shape the course of modern history. Throughout the game's 24 missions, players will be part of a squad, who bond together to take on enemy forces and achieve mission objectives through pivotal WWII battles and authentic military campaigns. Review

The latest PC first-person shooter to set itself among the horrors of World War II, Call of Duty spares little in its depiction of events. There are stray bullets, fallen comrades and some major gun battles, but also a top quality game.

That's unsurprising, since Call of Duty was put together by a good chunk of the team behind the superb Medal of Honor: Allied Assault and they've pulled plenty more tricks from their sleeves this time around. There are some genuinely terrific levels, at times favouring the all-guns blazing approach, at times rewarding a more precise build up. Either way, it's a hefty yet immensely rewarding challenge.

What's key though is how well it all plays--even more so if you take the game online. Too many major games aren't lasting long enough, yet with Call of Duty, there's a good chance you'll be playing it six months down the line. It's supremely addictive, with some of the finest gameplay of recent times sitting at its heart. With top-notch AI, strong graphics, significant single-player challenge and immersive play, "Call of Duty" raises the bar a good few notches. --Simon Brew

Call of Duty might just be the most authentic and engaging WW2 game you've ever played. Featuring 24 mission, split into 3 campaigns, players take on the roles of a GI paratrooper, a British commando and a russian conscript, taking the first-person fight to the Germans with a variety of weapons. So far, so Medal of Honor. Where this title raises the bar is in its full realisation of squad based combat, hinted at in other games but never before explored to this degree. Players fight alongside computer controlled squad mates, usually between 6-8 in number.
The AI that governs your fellow soldiers is one of the most practical, robust and flexible I've ever seen in a first-person shooter. Your buddies will lay down supressing fire that actually WORKS (a very pleasant change), cover each other's movements, use grenades without blowing up the whole unit, and generally behave as realistically as you could hope for computer players.
Thankfully the AI for the baddies is just as convincing. No longer do enemy soldiers bluster towards your rifles, hurling grenades with pin-point accuracy. In Call of Duty, they will advance in sqauds from cover, laying down their own supressing fire, lay traps and ambushes and even fall back to cover when overwhelmed. If a machine gunner gets hit, his buddy might choose to take over, or make a run for it. It gives a very rounded impression that you are flanked by real people, and facing an adaptive and versatile enemy.
The real beauty of the title is that you are part of the team, without being the star of the show. Sure, there's times when its up to you to take the initiative, and maybe even save the day, but if your squad fails, you fail.

Ok, well firstly the good stuff, this is the game we all hoped it would be when we played the demos, from the first mission to the last, there are no duds, each one is enjoyable and beautifully put together. The basic format of the missions remains largely similar to Medal of Honour, but the execution is much better,the graphics are quite frankly jaw-dropping (I was killed several times because I was too busy admiring the scenery),the game is wonderfully atmospheric and just kind of draws you in (to the point where I actually found myself humming "Ride of the Valkyries" during one of the tank missions) and even mission types I found particularly irritating in MOH (the on-rails machine gun missions for example) are pulled off so slickly that they leave you grinning like an idiot. Another nice point is that you play as soldiers from the American, British and Russian armies, rather than the purely US-centric approach of MOHAA.
They've also learnt from the mistakes of MOH and have worked to remove the really irritating aspects that spoilt that game, there are for example, no annoyingly bulletproof Germans, no having to reload a gun before you can hit someone with it and no idiotic squadmates determined to get themselves killed (despite it being your job to protect them), the level of difficulty is pretty much spot on and you never feel hard done by when you lose.
The gameplay is superb, it's spot on, the only reason I'm not giving it full marks is that it really is just far too short, yes, there are 24 missions, all of which have obviously had a great deal of work put into them, but each one rarely lasts more than about 10 minutes and even with mistakes you could easily finish the game in less than say 8 hours of play time.
Roll on the first expansion.

Verified Purchase
I put off buying this for a while as there are so many good FPS games due out in the next few months. Finally I couldn't resist the rave reviews any longer and bit the bullet.
I have to say this is the best games purchase I have made in a very long time. This game is packed with authenticity, attention to detail and outrageously brilliant gameplay. I just lapped this up - it's like being in a good war movie.
The graphics are excellent, with a cracking game engine and it runs stable as a rock on my (2 year old) PC. Sound effects are fantastic, voice dialogue is quite well-acted and the variation in characters and NPCs is refreshing. I thought the high points of the single-player campaign were the Brecourt Manor assault (straight out of Band of Brothers) in the US campaign; the Pegasus Bridge assault and defence in the British campaign; and the highlight of all is the Stalingrad defence from the Russian campaign. The action is multi-layered, frenetic, and truly adrenaline-pumping. The only downside is that weapon sounds are so brilliantly rendered that if you have invested in a 5.1 setup, you will crank it up and let the room shake around you, resulting in partial deafness! (Sorry neighbours!)
The greatest plus from the single-player point of view is that COD finally has cracked the problem which plagues previous squad-based games, namely the incomprehensible and erratic team AI (Battlefield 1942 the obvious culprit!!). In COD, your teammates take initiative, pick their targets and generally manage to stay out of each others' way and avoid blending with the scenery. Lead, and they follow, providing proper covering fire; alternatively, you can lag back a bit and they will clear a way ahead and provide holding positions for you to exploit.
