Call Of Duty 2 For Mac Reviewed
8:50 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

The latest review from Macworld's Game Room focuses on Call of Duty 2, the World War II first person shooter brought to the Mac by Aspyr Media. 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...

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.
