Call of Duty puts players in the shoes of a foot soldier in the American, British, and Russian armies during the Second World War. These soldiers aren't the one-man armies of other games; these soldiers are just another cog in the war machine.
When I played this game, it had been an experience I had never seen before in a World War II first person shooter game. However there were a few things that I felt could have used some improving. For example, the lack of a German campaign is a bit strange. This forced me to use a german player pack and it wasn't very enjoyable because i had to replay the entire game. But let's begin this review with the story! The story varies since you play as American, British and Russian (unfortunately lacking a German campaign), so you get to experience different nation’s roles in World War II. This game is obviously based on history, so that instantly deserves a 10/10. You should be familiar with World War II, but if not, I will run through it. You take control of 101 Airborne Private Martin in the American Campaign, and you must prove to your captains that you are a worth soldier. In the British Campaign, you get to fight on the epic Pegasus Bridge as Sergeant Evans. Lastly, you also get to play as conscript Alexei, a peasant drafted from Stalingrad to help the battle. The graphics are outstanding. However if you ran this game on Extra settings, the graphics are absolutely amazing with the amount of detail that is placed into the models. Face expressions on the characters are great, and their mouth's move correctly with speech. Environmental textures are outstanding as well and really capture the feeling of World War II. The sky is very well done, the ground and building textures are great, and water effects are one of the best I’ve seen yet. This game also uses the Id Tech 3 engine, which means it wouldn't be a huge demand to run this on your PC. Sounds in this game are as amazing as the gameplay. If you have a large speaker collection for your computer, prepare to be blown away with the full effects of the sound. The only things that kept this game from the top were the lack of the german campaign and some annoying solo missions.
