If you're shying away from Call of Duty because you've had enough of WWII first-person shooters, don't dismiss it so quickly. Although not 100% original, there is enough here to distinguish it from the competition. It's also wildly entertaining, which doesn't hurt. I guess it's a sign of our times that there are so many war games coming out right now, and an even more troubling sign that so many revert to WWII and Nazis to give us an enemy we don't mind fighting. However, as long as the games are as great as Call of Duty, I won't question it. As a gamer, I'll just accept my call of duty and try to remember that, in games, no one plays alone.

These shortcomings aside, Infinity Ward has created a masterpiece of a game that pulled me in to the point that I beat it by the end of the second day of owning it. Duane Johnson's single-handed port work was everything that could be hoped for and if anyone ever doubted Aspyr's motivation toward a project, this should stand to prove what they're capable of. The game is there, its execution amazing and as the Russian flag was hoisted over a fallen Berlin, it became apparent that the group that had left the safety of the long-established 2015 had discovered their programming kung-fu and turned it into something incredible.

There seems to be a lot of World War II games coming out, and while some of them aren’t worth your time, Call of Duty definitely is. Brought to us by Activision, Call of Duty is based on the American, British, and Russian armies as they fight German forces in Europe.

Made by some of the same designers that created Medal of Honor: Allied Assault, Call of Duty features superior graphics and a grander scale of battle. The single-player campaign lets you switch between American, British, and Russian soldiers as you take on the Nazis. The game's flexibility ensures that there's more than one way to complete a mission. The game also supports cross-platform multiplayer challenges, giving you plenty of replay value after you're done with the single-player missions.

In a time where Mac World War II themed games are a dime a dozen, Call of Duty is refreshing change of pace for the genre. The folks at developer Infinity Ward have gone the extra mile to present a game that brings the player closer to the game with decent voice acting and realistic events. Featuring gorgeous graphics, great music, “team-oriented” gameplay, and a decent multiplayer outing to boot, this is definitely one title that fans shouldn’t overlook.
