The game offers an exciting single player experience as well as the chance to face off against other humans in online play. The Game Room gave CoD 2 a score of 4.5 out of 5 mice.
Call of Duty 2 builds on the strengths of its forebear, and also erases some of the original game’s weaknesses. It sets a high bar when it comes to system requirements, needing a G5 or Intel-based Mac to play, but if your machine makes the grade, you’ll be rewarded with a fantastic game...To read the rest of the review head over to The Game Room at the link listed below.
Macworld Game Room: Call of Duty 2 Review
One thing that really separates Call of Duty 2 apart from the original game is the dramatically improved artificial intelligence, or AI. Computer-controlled soldiers are almost always around you, both enemies and friends, and they act pretty realistically.
Call of Duty 2 has a new graphics engine that produces some amazing-looking visuals. That’s one of the reasons why the system requirements for Call of Duty 2 are so much higher than before (more on this below). Dynamic weather and lighting conditions also go a long way toward creating a realistic environment—you can use smoke grenades, for example, to obscure the battlefield. That’s a handy trick if you have to move yourself or your troops while enemy gunners are aiming for you.
