Good game but annoying!,
This review is from: Call of Duty: Finest Hour (Xbox) (Video Game)
Call of duty finest hour was my first game on the xbox, and as i'm awful at it, i still haven't completed it, i'm stuck in Aachen shooting lots of nazi's in sewers.
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. Now sorry if I'm wrong, but there weren't any invincible Nazi's in WWII. Mmmm... It's not the same one every time. It's usually a panzershreck, who insist on blowing up you/your M12, which is annoying. You can shoot them with an MG42 for half a minute at about 10 meters and there still alive, damn. Then they turn round and shoot you.
Overall it's a brilliant game, and it's fun to replay. Unfortunately on Xbox Live it's OK but there's hardly anyone on, most people have probably gone on to Call of Duty 2/3.
