WWII Finally Comes to Consol
-----------------------------------------------

Fresh off of the release of the exact same game for the PC, Call Of Duty 2 makes a re-appearance on the Xbox 360. With its beautiful graphics, excellent weapon models, and crisp feel, you know that this game will last you a while.

The Gameplay
------------------------

Call Of Duty 2 takes place in three different parts of World War II. The first part being a conscript in the Red Army of Russia, while fighting in Stalingrad between 1941 and 1943. You play as a Private who, in the time you play as him, does not get promoted. He is a rifleman who is good at what he does, and what he does is killing Nazis. You fight your way through the battle of Stalingrad, finally ending with the defeat of the Germans at the end of the battle.

From Stalingrad, you head to Libya where the British are fighting off the Nazis. You play a Sergent in the British army who has the ability to do anything from ordering air strikes to driving tanks to wreaking havoc in German trenches.

From Libya you head to Omaha Beach in Normandy France, and that fateful day of June 6th, 1944. The United States of America is beginning their attack against the Nazis, and the vital turning point in World War II. you make your way through and push the Germans back to where they came from, marking your path in Nazi corpses.

With superb controls, the gameplay of this game runs smoothly, and never experiences a dull or laggy moment. A 10/10 for the overall gameplay on this game.

Xbox LIVE
----------------

The Xbox LIVE component of this game was briliantly done. You can do one of three game modes; deathmatch, team deathmatch, and capture the flag. Depending on the type of server you are in, and everyone's connections, your game may run smoother than glass, or choppier than the North Atlantic. Overall, the option to play as either Germany, America, Britain, or Russia throughout the wide selection of maps is a great option, and you will be addicted to it for a long time.

There is also the option to play offline, which is either system link (which can support up to sixteen players) or local consol (which can support up to four players), with the same maps and options.

Verdict
----------
Definately worth the money you spend on it, Call Of Duty 2 will keep you captivated and entertained for hours on end, with never a dull moment.

New Edit: 6/26/2009
After going back and playing this game today it no longer gets an A+ because let's be honest, CoD 4 and World At War are both more solid games.  That means this game gets downgraded to a B
