Excellent recreation of the D-Day landings at Pointe Du Hoc, Hill 400, and lots of other major battles of WW2. Great graphics, and gameplay is fantastic, where you work as a squad rather than all that lone wolf nonsense that you get in the Medal Of Honour games. If you want a real WW2 game buy this.
Also, you play not just as the Yanks, but as the British Army and The Russian Army. The Call of Duty 2 PC game has great details, such as an ability to hold your breath to steady a sniper rifle. It has many authentic WW2 weapons, such as the M1 Garand, Lee Enfield Bolt Action Rifle, and many more.
The Multiplayer is excellent, but as with all games that have single player and online capabilities, it does take some getting used to. Additional online maps give variation, and through online gaming you can get mods, such as increased gore, which then work in single player as well. Also online, some servers provide a 9mm version of the Tompson SMG, giving 30 rounds in a mag, as opposed to the 45. Calibre rounds giving 20 rounds per mag in the traditional Tompson.
It is a shame that Call Of Duty 3 is not on the PC!
