It's only been two short years since Call of Duty came along and shook up the world of World War II shooters. Made by Infinity Ward, which was started by former developers on the Medal of Honor series, Call of Duty focused on straightforward, cinematic action, but did it extremely well, with wonderful set pieces and a sense of polish that's not always evident in games from first-time developers. The game was also notable for having a comprehensive multiplayer mode in addition to its singleplayer component, which was rare at the time, as most developers focused on delivering one or the other.
Now, two years later, Infinity Ward is back with Call of Duty 2, a bigger and better sequel to the original game. Call of Duty sports a bigger scope and better graphics, but doesn't mess with success overmuch; if you played a bunch of Call of Duty, then you should feel right at home here, since the entire game is fairly similar to the first game, right down to the overall standard of quality.
GameSpot's Game Guide to Call of Duty 2 includes a full single-player walkthrough, detailed descriptions on all of the weapons in the game, and a few multiplayer tips as well. Enjoy!
