Call of Duty 2 is an installment in the series of war-themed first-person perspective shooters. The game is trying to recreate the big military operations of World War II (Defence of Stalingrad, invasion in Normandy and German-British war in North Africa).

Developers from Infinity Ward divided Call of Duty 2 into three campaigns (Russian, British and American) and put into the game a lot of new features (e.g. no health indicator, option to complete mission objectives in different order). Expanded multiplayer modes are also available.
