Call of Duty 2 is the second installment released in the extensive Cod franchise. Developed by Infinity Ward with the collaboration of Pi Studios and released in 2005 by Activision, this game has won more than 80 awards, being one of the most awarded games of its generation. This first-person shooter is set in the World War II, recreating the incidents and conflicts of this war in a very realistic way. Several missions of the campaign are based on real life events, but in others the writers have taken some artistic licenses and have changed the historical situations. You will live these events through the eyes of Vassili Ivanovich Koslov, in the Russian team, Sergeant John Davis and Major David Welsh "Fox 3" in the British team, and Corporal Bill Taylor in the USA team. The game does not follow a strict order regarding the campaign development, since it is based on the year we are in each battle. This way, at first you will be fighting in 1941 in Moscow, Russia, and then you will be able to go to other battles of other campaigns.
Become a soldier fighting in the World War II and help your army to achieve the victory. Perform new missions, fight against new enemies, discover new functions of your character, and enjoy new environments full of risky elements. With Call of Duty 2, you will experience the real pressure of being a soldier, the intensity of fighting, and accomplishing missions in a fully chaotic environment. You will sometimes get confused because the noise or the on-screen smoke of grenades, explosions and planes will make the battlefield tremble. Don’t worry and keep playing, even if you don’t really know where you are or what to do, war is this way! Confusion will give this Cod installment more excitement.
Gameplay and modes
In respect of gameplay, this title incorporates new abilities, as the one to climb small-size obstacles, which is great but present some flaws as the arbitrariness about the altitude one can reach. Health-system has also been modified, it will now restrain your short-term injuries, and staying in calm places will restore your health. This may seem so basic now that many Cod titles have been released, but when this game was launched, it was a great novelty.
Regarding game modes, the main one is the campaign. It is divided in three campaigns, each of them in 3 battles, and each battle is divided in several missions. On the other hand, you will have dozens of allied troops by your side, but you cannot give them orders, so they will follow their own path. Sometimes, you will have to use vehicles. An allied soldier will drive it while you neutralize the enemies. In the campaign you will see immense battlefields in the Libyan dessert, Normandy in the D-day, the European streets of Moscow and Stalingrad in Russia. In addition, the war-torn environments of the WWII will provide stunning visuals; thus, this sequel offers you an immersive experience.
Apart from the campaign, you will enjoy its multiplayer modes with which you will be free to play online with your friends or people all over the world. Within you will find various modes such as Search & Destroy, Team Deathmatch, Deathmatch, Headquarters or Capture the Flag. Several maps are available to play, 13 in total, and 2 more were added in the 1.2 version. These maps are divided into countries: France, Soviet Union, Egypt and Tunisia. France has maps like Caen or Caretan, the Soviet Union has Moscow, Stalingrad or Leningrad, Egypt has El Alamein, and Tunisia, Matmata and Toujane. On the other hand, the weapons of Cod2 are the ones which were actually used in the WWII. Thus, Americans have weapons such as the M1 Garand or the Mk 2 Grenade, British army have the Webley hand gun or the Thompson automatic rifle, Soviets have the Tokarev TT-33 or the PPSh-41 and Germans have the Luger or the Mauser Kar 98k.

The Best Call Of Duty Series I Have Ever Played

On Tuesday, July 14, 2015
An exceptional game – that’s how I describe the 2nd Call of Duty game. I have wanted to play this game since I was in college, but now that I have finally played it 6 years after its release, I can totally say that it is a good game. It was the most popular game played on Xbox Live. The controls and the gameplay are very solid. The options are good. The iron sights have the perfect balance between field and zoom view. The graphics are good than World at War in terms of the environments and lighting. The guns are satisfying, and the multiplayer mode is very simple because you just have to choose any weapons that are available for your team. Moreover, this game has a split screen for 4 players and system link for large LAN parties. Also, the campaign of the game is very long, but fairly decent and good. All in all, this game is the best war game I have ever played!
- Meaningful and clever additions to multiplayer
- A campaign driven by outstanding pacing and varied encounters
- The maps are too large
