Call of Duty 2 is the second release of this fantastic realistic war game that puts you in the shoes of a few different soldiers fighting for different Allied factions during World War II.
During most of the missions players fight in the deserts of North Africa and the final mission in the British campaign sends you and your army to Caen, France.
Each of the game's 10 missions is split into different stages. In every setting you will be surrounded by groups of soldiers, both friends and foes, who move and act in an extremely realistic way. Each mission is introduced with video footage from the Military Channel, as well as documentary-style narration that helps set the historical setting for what players are about to face and do.
Something different from the first Call of Duty is that there is no longer a health bar. As the player gets shot, the screen grows more and more red along the borders and the character starts to grunt and faint.
The game's graphics are particularly great, specially the smoke effects from smoke grenades and explosions, and sound is nothing less than superb.
