  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]

    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.

    Although the graphics are outdated, it is still a game to enjoy.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

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

    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.

    It is worth your time if you want a old-school shooter but nowadays you got some better options

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

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

    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.
