Call of Duty: Finest Hour
Best WWII game ever created
This is my 100% favorite game ever made. I bought this game years ago for ps2 and i loved, and still do love it. The game starts with you on a rowboat in russia going to the most fascinating battleground stalingrad. As you sit there a general or srg. or someone is at the front of the boat giving a speech. Thn your boat is shelled by artillery planes and whatnot. Then in the middle of the speech two teammates jump out of the boat and the man giving the speech says, Cowards and traitors will be shot! and he shoots them. You arrive at the docks of stalingrad and you and your teammates in the boat scream death to the german invader! then you get out and stand in line to get ammo as a man yells the russian way of using ammunition. And there is so much more things to mention that i dont feel like typing on just the first mission. Let it be known the boat part in the beginning is the pretty much same scene as the beginning of the movie enemy at the gates. watch it. So yes this is the most realistic stalingrad scene in any game ever made...thank you spark
Try it your like it
This game was made by Activision the people who made Call of Duty World at War. This game was made back in about 2003 for the time it was a great game the graphics are good for the time it was made, The story line is great you will sometimes see yourself. the games sound is great the explosions are wonderful and are amazing. It is extremely difficult because it uses the health bar system and you have to find health packs all over the place. All in all this game is great for a challage and is wonderful. If graphics are bad but that is just because it was made in 2003. the controls are very good but i would get it for the xbox because i have it for the gamecube and the d-pad is bad for the game becasue it is the reload and switch weapons buttons. all in all the game is great if you can stand the 2003 graphics but it is a alright game
Good for early game
You should get this game! Very good for a old game.
maybey the best game ever made!!!
this is my all time favorite game i have it for my PS2 and xbox. This game will make you want to play it over and over again. It has a great story line and you get to fight as soldiers from 3 different nations. The American levels can be pretty hard but if you cant beat it put it on easy then after you beat it play it again on a harder difficulty. The level a desert ride where you are English in North Africa is great because the whole level you are just shooting the machine gun. Surrender at Aachen is a great one too. The First Level you are a Russian heading into Stalingrad a really great level. It has extremely good graphics coming from the year it was made in and the sound is also great. The controls are easy to use unlike other games. I give this game 10 out of ten 5 stars two thumbs up. i think its the best of the first 3 call of duty games, (haven't played call of duty 4 yet)
The one to start em all...
This is the first Call Of Duty that came out on consoles... COD actually got its start on the PC which alot of people dont know. Ok to clear some things, This games was Developed by Spark Unlimited and published by Activision who went on to buy the COD title and became the primary publisher of the series after seeing how well it was doing... The game launched November, 16, 2004 for the Xbox, PlayStation 2, & GameCube. This games has very good graphics, sound and playability for an Original Xbox game. There are some really challenging areas of the game as well as some Mow Em down sections which I think balance out the game very well... Its mostly just run and gun, however if you take the difficulty all the way to veteran you will bear witness to a whole new game play experience... Improved A.I. reactions will have you running for cover and playing the game as a real world situation will your trying to pick the enemy off one by one while also trying not to die... Being the game was on a last gen console the animation isn't what you would expect with a COD title however you must keep in mind this game is almost 6 years old... All in all I would give this game a 10 out of 10 being this is the game that turned me into a COD freak... Replay value is pretty high, the game is very addictive and as soon as you turn it off you will want to play it some more, I kno i did... *Message to parents*, this game is pretty old and as such GORE is not really there... there really isn't no blood splatter however mass killing is involved of the Nazi variety... So if your cool with your kids firing some animated bullets into some of Germany's rather lower class citizens and watching them just fall over than I would recommend this game to you...
Great Old Game
I have had this game forever now, and believe it or not I would pick this over World at War or Modern Warfare any day. I am not sure exactly why, but I like old games like this. I still have the Call of Duty Originally, and use it often. Compared to games of today, the graphics are not good. But from the year it was made, it was great. The game play was nice, and I liked the line it went in order. It is very historically accurate. It is mildly addicting, depending on who you are. This is without a doubt, one of the best World War II games ever made. Would recommend to a gamer any day.
If you think this game is good on graphics and storyline. you are wrong because this game is a worthless attempt at a good shooter game. First of all the graphics are prehistoric and the storyline makes no sense of who you are and whats happening. The sound is of people screaming or russians being made fun of with weird accents. At about the same price you can buy call of duty 2 big red one or call of duty 3. These games make foreign people look heroic instead of idiots. This game glitches too much and your character always changes without your knowledge. You will not pass one level of this unless you are a veteran on cod 5 or 4. I think that call of duty should be ashamed because this game shows nothing important of ww2 and feels so made up that even the guns (which are real ) are fake. Do not buy this!
Sucked from the day it was made
First of all its not anything like ww2 because of the gameplay.2nd of all its not fun.3rd of all theres a lot more better games for the price of it.4rth of all if you play online theres to much noobs playing so its basically bettter to buy the rest of call duty games including black ops.
ok i loved all of the call of duty well i started playing them in modern warfare the first one and i wanted to get to know were it all started so im going to buy this hopefully today when i pick up halo reach
