    With so many inconsistencies, Finest Hour just doesn't live up to its PC forefather. Alone on the consoles, this is one World War II moment that's better rented than bought.

    Though it's short, Call of Duty's realistic in-the-war feel and sheer challenge will appeal to WWII fans and veterans. So, what is Call of Duty? Call of Duty is a game based on World War 2. What do you do in the game? The gameplay is very fun. You can use plenty of weapons which are all different, but equal. You can snipe, man turrets, search buildings, crouch, aim, jump. But the presentation ties it together nicely. Sometimes you may get stuck due to lousy instruction, but most of the time, you should be on key. How hard is this game? You can play on 3 different difficulties. Easy. Medium. Hard. Even on easy, the game can get somewhat difficult. The challenge is what keeps the player playing this game and it doesn't frustrate you like in other games. How are the graphics? Amazing. They aren't that high def, but the graphics create surroundings that make it feel like you are actually in the war. And that is what seperates it from most games. How is the sound? Great. It uses Dolby Pro Logic II. Everything on key. Without sound, it wouldn't be a war. How long is it? Short, I admit. It is only a couple hours long. But it's difficulty and fun gameplay will leave you coming back for more. Too bad Gamecube didn't give this online play. Any unlockables? Some cheats. Movies. Photos. The small stuff. Who do you reccomend owning the game? WWII veterans who want to look back at the wars. FPS fans who want a tense experience. War/weapon fanatics. Pros: Realistic in-the-war presentation ; enjoyable gameplay ; plenty of weapons to choose from and use ; Challenging game. Cons: Slow motion moments are annoying ; No multiplayer or online play ; Short single player. Full Review »

    Soooo disappointed with this title. After all the reviews, I thought it'd be a solid shooter. It's weak. terrible play control - no real feel when you are shooting at enemies. Why can't enemies just fall down and die? they flop around for 2 seconds making you waste more ammo on them. Nintendo can do better. Full Review »
