  1. Though the maps feel a little small and spawn points are poorly placed, it’s executed well enough that you’ll wonder why more DS shooters aren’t this competent. Ultimately, however, the setting and controls still hold back this war without end from being anything but a quick tour of duty.

This game uses the same engine as the first CoD and they really to the engine to new heights and it can be seen in the graphics. The details on the DS in amazing. The gameplay is great. The single-player campaign brings you all the hectic war moments you've come to expect from a CoD game. The multiplayer has tons of options and maps to play and it all plays very well. It even has online stat tracking. This is a game people will be playing for a long time. This is the multiplayer first person shooter people have been waiting for since Metroid Prime Hunters.
