Call of Duty: Finest Hour is the first CoD game on the consoles. The story spans through three different fronts in the Second World War through three soldiers' viewpoints. Basically, the game is a heavily scripted, story driven action game where the main focus is on the action and the dramatisation of the war and the people in the middle of it all. One of the defining features if Call of Duty-games is the mood they set, and the accurate reproduction of the actual WW2 battlefields and operations. As well as the usual range of WW2 weaponry, in CoD:FH there are also vehicles which one can drive around, blasting enemy to bits in the process.

Decent alternative to MOH, but is also very flawed at times. PlayStation 2 Big John WV (25494)

German version

In the German version terms like "Nazi" or "Third Reich" and all references (except Roosevelt in the outro) to war participants were cut out, e.g. Mussolini, Hitler and Montgomery were removed. This includes voice acting, in-game posters and video sequences. Other cuts involve a change in the first eastern front mission where a "kill" was translated to "besiegen" (defeat) and all voices in the making of videos. Additionally all swastikas were either removed or replaced with iron crosses. A detailed list of changes can be found on schnittberichte.com.
