    Война — удел настоящих мужчин. Это грязная, тяжелая работа, выполнить которую в одиночку не под силу никому. Лишь по-настоящему сплотившись, бойцы могут выстоять и победить, только вместе они — мощь, способная заставить трепетать любого врага.

    Call of Duty по праву носит звание лучшей игры в жанре action про Вторую мировую войну. Вам предстоит лицом к лицу встретиться с самой масштабной и впечатляющей реконструкцией событий тех страшных лет. Париж и Сталинград, прорыв из окружения в Нормандии и битва за Берлин, кровь, огонь, боль потери друзей и радость победы — в Call of Duty эти слова перестают быть просто словами, превращаясь в стремительный водоворот событий, вырваться из которого практически невозможно.

    • Три главных персонажа: советский солдат, британский и американский десантники.
    • Двадцать четыре миссии в рамках четырех кампаний.
    • Доведенный до совершенства движок Quake 3.

    • Интересный, стремительно развивающийся сюжет.
    • Многопользовательские режимы для сетевой игры — LAN или Internet.
