  • Summary: In Call of Duty: Roads to Victory, get closer than ever to the fury of combat as an Allied soldier in World War IIs most harrowing military operation, the Normandy Breakout Campaign. Melee combat and destructible cover bring you face-to-face with German forces. Multiple attack routes mean you decide whether to flank your enemy or hit him head on. [Activision] Expand

  1. The gameplay has been made more accessible but nonetheless engaging for the handheld, and the presentation, particularly the sound, is great. The PSP is not perfectly suited for first person shooters, but this is about as good as it can get.
  2. Throughout the game, you'll find all sorts of signs that the developers knew what would ruin the experience, and so worked overtime to avoid those pitfalls. As a result, Call of Duty: Roads to Victory is a serious contender for the handheld FPS crown. [Apr 2007, p.51]
  3. For me, the controls are the root of the game’s issues in that they’re not ideal for a combat intensive game like Call of Duty. To compensate, the enemy AI is dumbed down. To compensate for that, enemy respawns, sometimes in unlimited numbers, are used. It’s a trickle-down effect and it’s a shame because the presentation is solid and the mission design is excellent.
  4. A decent handheld reduction of the main series with little new to offer in its short campaign and limited multiplayer.
  5. The absence of a storyline to get you invested with the characters, the lacklustre gameplay and the limited controls pull the gameplay down so much that it's impossible to reproduce the quality of its kindred on other platforms.

    A valiant effort for what it is, but still falls short in terms of control and level design. But if you absolutely must have your World War II fix on the go, you could do worse.
  7. Doesn't feel like a true Call of Duty game. Gamers can blame Amaze if they like or the difficulty of developing a shooter on the PSP format, but either way Call of Duty Roads to Victory falls short of expectations.

    Call of Duty Roads to Victory is a must-buy for PSP gamers. The reason I rate a 9 for this game was because of one thing: Multiplayer. In multiplayer, it doesn't have infrastructure online play than Medal of Honor Heroes have. Instead the game has ad hac. But whats good about this game is the graphics, the gameplay, the sound, and everything! If you have friends who have this game then this game is right thing for you! Expand

    Roads to Victory succeeds at bringing the Call of Duty experience to the Playstation Portable, it really feels like COD 2 and 3 for consoles, the controls are obviously not as good as the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions, but they work great for a handheld system, and the sound and graphics are pretty good, and it's a lot of fun, the multiplayer isn't all that great but still some fun with friends, and the campaign is a little short, but if you looking for a great FPS experience for the PSP, or just want to play some Call of Duty on the go this is a good purchase.

    A good game, especially on the PSP. Very fun to play, alright controls and a unique storyline no other console has produced.
    It has quite a
    fast load if installed on the PSP with custom firmware, but is way too large to be loading off a UMD (700mb!) Expand

    *NOTE: This review is for the Vita version of the game.
    After the failure of the Vita's Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified, im glad to say
    that Roads to Victory is a strong improvement. With the Vita's second analog stick, you may now play the game as if it were on a console. The graphics are strictly OK, but you still have to respect that it is a 2007 PSP title. Finally, there is no multiplayer on the Vita version, but thats what Black Ops Declassified is for.

    Call of Duty's debut on Sony's portable is, without its issues, a fine addition to the franchise. Roads to Victory brings us back to Call of Duty's roots, as we play through historical WW2 events in first-person format. In terms of single player, Roads to Victory boasts a lengthy campaign, in which we play as US, British, and Canadian soldiers, all of which bear their own motivations. Roads to Victory's gameplay is mediocre at best. While Roads to Victory's control scheme is well thought out, the game lacks any real innovation. While players will be met with decent set pieces, engaging vehicles sequences, and addictive run-and-gun first-person fun, Roads to Victory's gameplay often feels like a tech demo for an early Call of Duty title. Graphically, Roads to Victory looks fine for a game over six years old. While environments tend to look rather muddy, guns look fairly detailed. Overall, Roads to Victory is essentially a clone of the original Call of Duty, and that isn't an entirely bad thing. Expand
