Call Of Duty 2 Reviewed

Gaming Groove 2.0 recently posted a review of the PC version of Call of Duty 2, the first person shooter set in the World War II era. CoD 2 features improved graphics, better enemy artificial intelligence, and a more immersive play experience. Gaming Groove 2.0 gave Call of Duty 2 a final score of 9 out of 10.

I don't miss being distracted tracking down medkits. When I play, say, DOOM3, there is a tendency to spend some brainpower on remembering the location of health power-ups that you passed by on a level so that when you get your ass handed to you later on in the level, you can backtrack to those medkits. I would actually think strategically about which medkits to pick up. For example, I wouldn't pick up a +25 medkit if I was at 85, I'd grab a +10 stimpack or wait until my health dropped below 75. Or, I'm sure I'm not the only player who has gone back and picked up all the uncollected medkits right before I exit a level. All this medkit and health status management actually distracts you from just playing the game. In Call of Duty 2, you almost never think of backtracking for any reason (except to pick up some ammo).
Aspyr Media is currently working on the Mac version of Call of Duty 2. It is scheduled for a May release.
