Gets very, very tough on harder settings
Call of Duty is the best WWII first person shooter ever made. It beats Medal of Honour hands down with superior graphics, excellent weapon balance and great artificial intelligence from your comrades.
You get to play Call of Duty in 3 episodes, through the eyes of a British, Russian and American soldier. Each chapter is markedly different as you get to use weapons specific to that army and take part in county-specific weapons (such as defending Stalingrad as a Russian). The firefights can get very tense, and because enemy intelligence is so good, they can become a test of nerve - who will pop out first to take a shot?! On a high end machine, Call of Duty looks very nice, and although there is no light-sourcing, the levels have been coloured well and textures are very sharp and realistic. Incidental music is well played, and the tank missions are excellent (could quite easliy have been used as game in their own right). Call of Duty is a worthy shoot'em up and anyone with a decent enough PC should own it.
