The recent release of Evolve and The Order 1886 really got me to thinking about the disparity between the perspective of sales-driven publishers and the quality-driven purchases of consumers. The “Hype Train” is nothing new, but the way it is utilized has been creating far more...

What do these ratings mean?

Having been a fan of Call of Duty for only about 3 years, I did not have a 360 when Call of Duty 2 came out.  When I did eventually pick up the game I was very impressed.  I did not play the original Call of Duty so I can't tell you how much this game resembles the first one. As you know this game has three technical campaigns. Russian, British, and of course the Amis(German slang for Americans). The Russian levels are played first then the British and then the American missions. The British and American missions have more than the Russian. In Russian missions you fight in Stalingrad (something I'm sure many of you have done many times). The British missions have you trecking through Egypt and recapturing Caen , and the Amis go through, you guessed it D-Day and the Normandy outbreak. The gameplay is good, having good AI and scope on the look of fellow soldiers and enemies. There is a varied amount of weapons throughout the game, ranging from the Soviets SVT's or the British Sten (which you don't use 'till the Caen missions) and from the American B.A.R. All the weapons have a different feal to them, the Thompson for example really gives off a bark. As I said the AI is good, as they will throw grenades and attempt to get a shot off of you if you don't keeps youself well enough guarded. The only problem with the Germans trying to throw grenades is that they just about always land at your feet, and you are incapable of throwing them back to the Nazi's. The story (wherever it is, is good) and you get the feeling that you are seeing things that not just one soldiers could have seen. The oncoming Germans usually need to be erradicated and then you must push forward. The only problem with this (and only if you're a historical freak) is the amount of Germans. The soldiers you play as would have to been the only ones to have killed any Germans due to how many of them there are. Like I said it won't bother anyone unless you're a historical freak. So together this is probably one of the best Call of Duty( it's technically the only other Call of Duty, unless you count COD:Finest Hour or COD2:Big Red One) it's got good set of weapons, good AI, and some of the best graphics for a launch game for the Xbox 360.
