Storyline

The 3rd Reich has rose to power in the European Theatre; the allies have united and begun their assault on multiple fronts. I have boarded the crowded and disease-spreading cattle cars heading to the Russian front with my fellow comrades. With an M1 Carbine in my hand, and 15 bullets in my pocket, I hit the snow running. Welcome to Call Of Duty 2... The latest installment to the ever more popular Infinity Ward franchise WWII era first person shooter. Over the course of the years 1941-1945, including 27 equally challenging missions, you will take the role of infantry on all fronts of the war. Pushing the German offensive out of Russia, Africa, and straight to the homeland of Germany with an impressively intelligent squad of comrades at your side, and an assortment of weapons at your disposal.

Trivia

Call of Duty 2 became a part of the Xbox One backwards compatibility program on August 23rd, 2016. Even though this is just the Xbox 360 version running on Xbox One hardware, Call of Duty 2 sees a massive performance boost when played on Xbox One. The game utilizes a double framebuffer to where the frame rate will hard lock to 30fps if a consistent 60fps cannot be maintained, which happened often on Xbox 360. Now when played on Xbox One the game's frame rate is locked to 60fps. See more »

Goofs

The M4A3 Sherman, the variant that appears in game, would not have been in service with the British in the 1942 campaign in North Africa, and would not have been seen in large numbers until August 1944, when they became more common.

A more appropriate choice would have been the M4 or M4A1, as they were the most often seen and used during those periods. See more »

My first 360 game...
3 October 2006 | by See all my reviews

When I got my 360 for Xmas, this was the only game I received. I'd pleaded with my Mum not to get it mixed up with 'Big Red One' for the original Xbox, and I was overjoyed when she hadn't.

Pros:

Graphics-The detail, lighting, and effects on this game are amazing! the dust and smoke from the explosions, the flashing red screen when you've been shot, the grainy sand of the desert towns, the rock faces and water effects at Normandy....all of these amount to make one of the greatest looking games I've ever seen.

Sound effects- These were excellent too. The crashes of the explosions, the piercing gunshots as you move round the corner, the spit of the bullets as they crash into the scenery behind you all add to a great feeling of authenticity.

A.I-the Artificial intelligence has improved this time round. Your squad-mates know when and where to provide covering fire, alert you to hidden enemies or tanks....a considerable yet not significant upgrade.

Cons:

Repetition- Again, its just shooting and more shooting, punctuated occasionally by planting sticky bombs on tanks and distracting enemies with smoke grenades.

Setting- I know this is Call of Duty and it's set during WWII, but the 1940s setting is beginning to drag on a bit. Perhaps you could play as one of the Axis officers, or maybe they could make a Call of Duty set in the future....who knows?

Overall: A vast improvement on Finest Hour, so in my opinion, this gets 9/10.
