  1. Go back 5 years and you'll realize why the Call of Duty franchise is so incredibly popular. The first Call of Dity game became an instant classic with its epic story telling and intense gameplay. Now it's back, with polished HD graphics and the same amazing multiplayer. A must-have in your collection if you, for some reason, missed the mother of all CoD games.

    As well designed and engaging as ever. [Issue#188, p.86]
  3. Some inventive Trophies, clean looks and an emotional campaign make this a great purchase at 12 quid. [Feb 2010, p.92]

    Truth is, $15 is a good price for a fun game, but I'm still not sure why you would choose to spend it here.
  5. 73
    Although the graphics are outdated, it is still a game to enjoy. People who play the CoD-games a lot, but never played the first part on the PC, now have the chance to play this first Call of Duty game.
  6. Call of Duty Classic is recommended to all who love the series and they want to know its roots. Good gameplay mechanics and an engaging story make this game still enjoyable in 2009.
  7. It's old and occasionally clunky, but this is a little piece of history that definitely holds up. [Jan 2010, p.118]

    Call of Duty Classic is what you expect from a HD remake, same game as the original with a better resolution. But other than that I'd say it's worth buying and here is why. The campaign is challenging and fun. It's also very long with up to 24 missions. The multiplayer is fun as well. While is doesn't do anything different from other WWII shooters, it's still very enjoyable. The game is also smooth running at a consistent 60 FPS. The you haven't if tried the original game then you should give this remake a try, it's worth it. Expand

    This game is indeed a classic since it started the Call of Duty series! The game play is pretty solid and the campaign is lengthy enough that it was an entertaining experience. The game is poor in ways like there's no cut scenes and no multiplayer but it is expected since its the debut Call of Duty game. I highly recommend checking out the other later Call of Duty games because they are even better than this one! Expand
