Pros Simply... pure fun
Cons I expected more from the graphics
Summary This game is a lot of fun to play - very fast paced and action packed. However, I had more fun playing Brothers in Arms on the old Xbox. But this is like saying a french vanilla shake is better than a vanilla bean shake - close and arguable. I do feel the graphics should have been better. Splinter Cell for the old Xbox rivals these graphics so, I expected a whole lot better for the 360 console (but I understand, this is a first generation game). The graphics are not bad at all, it just leaves me wanting more (although some scenes are indeed magnificant). Still, this is one title you must have.

Pros Killer Graphics, Good Missions, intelligent AI
Cons can't bring guests to xbox live with you...
Summary Ok, I bought this game shortly after Perfect Dark Zero, because Perfect Dark Zero sucked. This game is a way better fps than PD0. I really like the single player, multiplayer is good, except only one person can play on xbox live per account. This sucks, when my friends come over, they don't want to watch me play, and a 4 person deathmatch is kind of boring... Would have been a 10 if I could bring guests on xbox live. As far as entertainment value... it is awesome. I like that this is like real war, you can die very easily, and you have to be very thoughtful in playing. The visuals are stunning in high def ( I play on a 42" high def). And the audio makes you feel like you're there. In short, buy this game, it is probably the best launch title, don't let the editors rating of Perfect Dark fool you, it sucks.
Pros Excellent Campaign Mode, Stunning Graphics, Amazing Sound, Great Online Gameplay
Cons Can't Bring Guests Into Xbox Live Matches, Small Online Games
Summary I am so glad that I decided to download this demo because this game defines the word 'awesome'. The first thing I noticed from the moment the game started is the amazing graphics and detail (I play on a 60 inch HDTV). I was so amazed by them that I forgot what I was supposed to be doing and I remembered, "I am in the middle of WW2!" and I quickly joined the fight.
Another thing I noticed was the amazing sounds and detail of the guns. They sound just like the actual guns do!
The story is also awesome. You fight with the Russian, British, and American. Three awesome campaigns with my favorite being the Russian. Each battle gives you so much information of what the troops went through every day fighting. And I find the experience they got to be terrifying. This game truly is beautiful.
Another thing I enjoy is the Online play. Although you are unable to bring a guest into an Xbox Live match with you, it really is a lot of fun and you will want to keep on playing it giving it a great lasting appeal.
All in all, Call of Duty 2 is one of the greatest games and it showed me just why I purchased an Xbox 360. This game just blows away Call of Duty 3 even though it came out after this game. I recommend this game to anyone wanting an amazing WW2 shooter, and who wouldn't?
Pros Amazing single player and amazing multiplayer.
Cons There is not much of a story line.
Summary If you dont have this game go and get it now.
"Great game"on by sarfdawg
Pros Solid review of the history
Cons None noted.
Summary I really have enjoyed this game as it is audio and visual masterpiece. The graphics really push the 360, and the sound is alarmingly good as the bullets sound as if they are flying right by your ear. Sometimes the lack of athletic ability of your soldiers is frustrating, but it is a great game to just pick up and fire away.
