Predictably, the game shows its age. Classic will have a hard time standing up to its younger, fitter siblings and Modern Warfare 2 leaves Call of Duty Classic looking a little out of place. Truth is, $15 is a good price for a fun game, but I’m still not sure why you would choose to spend it here. I imagine that this will become the universal qualifier for Classic: if you never played the original and feel like you missed out, then go for it. It’s a better looking version of itself, and if you don’t mind some of the quirks of early COD gaming it really is a great title.

It was a great decision for Activision to offer up Call of Duty Classic so console gamers could experience the game that kick-started a phenomenon. But little care was given to making sure this experience was perfectly suited for PS3 and Xbox 360. The control set-up definitely needs some fine-tuning, the multiplayer only offers eight-player skirmishes and the audio doesn't do the original justice. Call of Duty is still an enjoyable game, but it doesn't really shine in this downloadable version.

Wat betreft Call of Duty Classic kunnen we zeggen dat Infinity Ward een mooie arcade titel heeft neergezet. Wat zeker is, is dat je bij deze game geen geheel nieuwe titel moet verwachten, want daar is deze arcadegame ook niet voor bedoeld. Call of Duty Classic is meer bedoeld voor het herbeleven van Call of Duty 1, alleen dan nu op de Xbox 360 en PS3. Wil je samen met je vrienden wat momenten herbeleven van Call of Duty 1, dan dan kan dat met deze game. Lekker ouderwets, maar wel de moeite waard.

I tanti fan della serie troveranno in Call of Duty Classic un buon modo per passare queste vacanze di Natale, tra una partita in multiplayer e l’altra. Tutti gli altri invece potranno godere di un classico del genere, che nonostante tecnicamente mostri tutti i suoi anni, è ancora divertente e godibile. Cruente battaglie, una buona trama e le solite, spettacolari scene scriptate costituiscono gli elementi di successo di questa produzione, esattamente come succede con tutti i suoi seguiti. Un discreto comparto multiplayer completa l’offerta ludica, macchiata da alcune imperfezioni nell’adattamento che comunque non inficiano il valore complessivo di questo Call of Duty Classic.

El trabajo de Infinity Ward se ha limitado a realizar una adaptación del primer título de su saga más exitosa a las consolas de alta definición. Pese a que han tenido lugar algunos recortes en el modo multijugador, el resultado de Call of Duty Classic es bastante satisfactorio, pues permite conocer cuáles fueron los inicios de una de las sagas que más fans lleva tras de sí en la actualidad. Aunque técnicamente no esté a la altura de otros juegos descargables del catálogo de ambas consolas, y jugablemente sea muy diferente a lo que los fans puedan estar acostumbrados –destacando el por momentos frustrante control-, es una buena oportunidad para todo amante de los juegos de acción bélica para hacerse con él y revivir uno de los clásicos que han dejado huella en la industria.
