    Although the graphics are outdated, it is still a game to enjoy.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.

    Although it is not as technically advanced as other downloadable games of the consoles, and the control is sometimes frustrating, it is a good opportunity for war action fans to revive one of the classics of the genre.
  3. 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.

    It's old and occasionally clunky, but this is a little piece of history that definitely holds up. [Jan 2010, p.118]

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. Full Review »

    This is the Call Of Duty experience in High Definition. You also experience the cinematic intensity through 24 epic missions.

    First of all, I must say this is the only Call of Duty I have ever played, so I cannot compare with the others. I have played manyFirst of all, I must say this is the only Call of Duty I have ever played, so I cannot compare with the others. I have played many first-person shooters from many different generations, though.

    This said, I am not judging the game by its graphics nor its technical power, but by the aspects which were workable on when it was first released, such as the storyline or, most importantly, degree of enjoyment.

    Overall, I did not enjoy the game. I actually had to make an effort to finish it. I guess all the Call of Duty games are this difficult, but this difficult is just insanely hard even on Regular. And it is not that it is just hard, but that I think it is badly calculated.

    I just did not enjoy it. Guess dying just because of one or two shots is very realistic, but that mechanics does not work properly on a game, in my opinion; I hate realistic games and simulators, with the exception of FIFA (for I love football). I will keep on playing a lot of first-person shooters, but definitely not Call of Duty.
