Play it on backwards compatible Xbox machines
Old but still a great game! I play it on the Xbox 360 and it still looks good.

Simple, fun challenging with moments of great pleasure
This game has very limited paths that we can take on a battle field. It is not wide open like the Battlefield series of games which I rather prefer. However it definitely has it's merits and the COD series is well worth having. This is not the best COD that I have ever played, but it has some epic battles in it and some really cool scenes. But like COD: it can feel restrictive at times.

Cool WWII First Person Shooter, but not the best....
First off let me state that I have really enjoyed playing this game for the most part. It has excellent graphics, awesome levels, very intense fire fights and interesting locations to play through. My biggest complaint of this title is the fact that it seems a little too much on the "riding on rails" side. I read reviews and play all kinds of FPS titles, I constantly read things about games being "too linear", well I think for a 2005 title it's pretty much linear. I have been playing FPS games(on consoles) since Goldeneye N64 and I and must say that this game has a lot of areas that look as if you could take a "short cut" or "alternate route" to sneak up on an enemy and then you hit a wall. You just stop in your tracks and have to turn around. I just expected a little more effort from such a praised title. I actually had more fun playing Medal of Honor:European Assult than this game.
Good game, but...
For however unapproachable it may be, Big Red One is still a nicely directed, exciting shooter. And while the basic multiplayer component and a few obvious drops in pacing sometimes make the title feel a touch flat, the singleplayer campaigns are actually anything but. In the future I'd love to see a greater emphasis on the personal interactions of soldiers. But given Call of Duty 2's abundance of such well-designed combat, I can't really complain about the omission of relatable people and genuine emotion, especially considering how many other acclaimed shooters make the same mistakes. Then again, the fact that there are an absurd amount of similarly themed titles available presents a bit of a problem and Call of Duty 2's subject matter might feel dry despite the consistently amazing action. Ultimately it's a game of straightforward shooting, but one directed with such care that it really shouldn't be neglected.
In the WWII genre, this is a good game. The feel of the game brings you into the war. Unfortunately, as many people who are familiar with this genre already know, there are many areas that need improving. Problems(or room for improvement): -difficulty is created by making the environments excessively dark. I think this is a cop out. -multi-player leaves a lot to be desired. Very glitchy. Jumpy. Opponents do not move smoothly. -many remaining glitches in the game. Try crawling through dead people...it's cool. Some dead people simply float in the air. -sometimes aggravating AI. Your teammates occasionally block your path or obstruct your view right in the middle of a battle. Strengths: -cool cut scenes. Nice ambiance. -great action. Good variety of weapons with realistic feel. -great music and ambient sounds. -controls are simple. This game is worth a rent and probably a purchase, but future iterations of the call of duty series are likely to improve upon these issues.
