    Much more impressive than Finest Hour

    Call of Duty 2: Big Red One is, yet another, World War II themed shooter. the sequel to 2004's Call of Duty: Finest Hour. Finest Hour didn't impress me, or anyone else too much. So how can they make the sequel any better... Read Full Review

    Don't believe the ads

    Thats it. I am lossing all faith in programmers to make a half desent first-person shooter. What is with all these writers that lead players around by the nose? And why do the grenades bounce so much? Its a grenade not a... Read Full Review

  • Review Score:8.5

    Allright game which is closely related to Call of Duty 2 but still fun all the same.

    GamePlay: Well Call od Duty: Big Red One is a close cousin to the 360's Call of Duty 2, and a brash, immersive war shooter that pushes current hardware about as far as it's going to go. The controls are pretty easy to le... Read Full Review

    Killing Nazis has never been so much fun.

    Call of Duty 2 is the best FPS launch game for the Xbox 360. The feel throughout the whole campaign is amazing. I felt like I was in WWII myself ( Please not that I have a 32" HDTV and 5.1 Surround Sound). I have neve... Read Full Review

    Call of Duty 2: The Big Red One, offered a less linear gameplay than its predecessor, and it was much more fun to play.

    When I got this game for Christmas, I thought " Oh know, this game might be just as boring as Finest Hour was." But then I put it in and started playing it, and it was a lot better than I expected! It wasn't boring lik... Read Full Review

    A short, linear, glitchy experience thats rather varied, but overall, its just not fun.

    Big Red One and Call Of Duty 2 for X360 and PC are diferent games. Normally its a good thing to make 2 different games instead of making a watered down port, in this case it probably wasn't. COD2: Big Red One is anothe... Read Full Review

    A great shooter......

    I think that the newest installment of Call of Duty is its best yet. The scenery is incredible and the sound is amazing. I love the music and the graphics. But what separates it from the Medal of Honor's and The Broth... Read Full Review

    Not fun. As simple and uninspired as a WWII game can be.

    First of all, I was a huge fan of the original call of duty and united offensive, and played medal of honor allied assault and both expansion packs extensively on the internet before that. Basically I've been playing WWI... Read Full Review
