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.
The Call of Duty games have always been rail-bound carnival rides, but recent incarnations have become adept at masking their mechanisms behind smoke and mirrors (well, okay, mostly smoke). Playing the first entry, in all its slightly crude glory, feels like you're going through the same carnival ride but now all the lights have been switched on, and you can see the wires and pulleys that make the plastic skeletons fly overhead. It's fun, but hardly immersive.
