Squad based fighting, no more battling by yourself without the option of fighting with a team.
Exceedingly good graphics
3 nations to fight along with
Very similar to Medal of Honor
Can be too short
Quite long loading times
Call of Duty is a very good game. However I noticed that it likes to spoof other war films and put you in that role. For example the Russian part of the game is entirely based around "Enemy at the gates" and the American part is based on the "Band of Brothers series". However this does not put you off too much.
It is a typical first person shooter game, very similar to Medal of Honor, but with better graphics and of course the squad fighting part.
This is what seperates Medal of Honor and Call of Duty apart. You are no longer expected to be dumped in a mission with 2 people maximum and fight whole squads of enemies, no. You know fight along side a squad of your own and can rely on their help.
As well as this there are some great historical moments, like the taking of Pegasus bridge and the taking of Berlin and the Reichstag as the Russians.
All in all a great game if a little too short.
