Call of duty 2 follows the story (there isn’t really an actual story itself – we all know the deal anyhow) of soldiers fighting for the British, American and Russian armies. You start the Russian campaign as a raw recruit, throwing potatoes into boxes because grenades are too expensive, but before you can even finish your training, the area is flooded with German troops. Immediately you’re thrown into the thick of it, into what the game is all about; intense urban shootouts between large numbers of soldiers. There are tons of enemies, and you have lots of friendly soldiers fighting with you, and more replace the ones who die spawning offscreen and running to your position; this is a game where you genuinely feel in the thick of war. The firefights are so amazing, most shooters only have one or two of this kind of quality throughout their entire length, every single level in CoD2 plays out with this level of intensity and quality.Read more ›
This game is the most intense FPS ever.
The original game and United Offensive were amazing games, this game improves on them even further.
The battles in it are at times overwhelming, the sheer amount of enemies that attack sometimes leaves you shaking with fear.
The US levels in particular are just a blur of explosions and bullets, it makes you even more respectful of the men who were actually there in the midst of all this hell.
The graphics are brilliant, but I was disappointed with the DX9 performance, especially since Quake 4 runs in the High setting on my PC and runs very smoothly, so Im a little puzzled with the DX9 on this game. So I have been playing it on DX7, but with everything on full even that has superb graphics.
Even with that little gripe this game is still amazing and I recommend you buy it now!!!
Like its predecessor the in-game experience is more like a concentrated war flick than reality. The game contains three distinct campaigns where you play as a Russian, British or US soldier. The game itself borrows heavily from Saving Private Ryan, Band of Brothers and Enemy at the Gates. If you've seen any of those then you know what to expect. Let's not beat around the bush here, the Pointe Du Hoc level is such a blatant ripoff of Saving Private Ryan that it screams lawsuit. Despite the ripoff clichés throughout, the production is very high. For each campaign you unlock more levels as you progress. The graphics engine has obviously been overhauled and looks very nice. Some levels are very well designed and the detail in the soldiers and levels is excellent. But if you were expecting swaying trees, destructive scenery, doors that you can kick open, foot prints, gravity or anything else – forget it. The scenery is basically a maze to hem you into the level. Aside from scripted effects, and weapon pockmarks, your ability to interact with it is zero.
So the game is a lot more graphically advanced than its predecessor, but the “feel” of the game is virtually the same. Each level consists of a series of objectives which you must complete in order to finish it.Read more ›
the graphics have improved alot the characters look more realistic and the scenery is impressive..
the single player game is fun...you fight as russian american and british forces ..with large groups of soldiers doing small objectives ...its fun ...but not the best single player gameive played
well i enjoy online gaming..and the online cod 2 is great
the maps are superb ..the weapons are varied and offer different strengths and weaknesses...the game feels like a cross between enemy at the gate and saving private ryan[2 ww 2 movies]
it feels good and looks good..and is a blast to play
so by all means buy this game for its single player option...but its the online game that offers most pleasure
a good single player game....a great online game that will last
