Back to basics first-person shooter that can't be missed.

Whether you’re a PC player or a console advocate, you can’t say that you haven’t heard of the prestigious Call of Duty franchise. The Call of Duty franchise first started in the year of 2003 and had only very basic components, the franchise has evolved into so much more since then.

The newer titles might have futuristic guns and sci-fi settings, but some of us just want to get back to the run-and-gun titles that the Call of Duty franchise was built upon.

Back to the Basics

One of the best things about Call of Duty 2 is the fact that it’s very stripped down, at least compared to some of the more modern titles in the franchise such as Ghosts, Advanced Warfare, and Black Ops III.

A lot of gamers claim that the franchise has been ruined due to all the new features. Call of Duty 2 is a great game to play if you just want to get back to the basics. The more modern titles — such as those mentioned above — have been bombarded with perks and futuristic features, making the games unplayable for those of us who just want the basics.

Campaign

The campaign mode of Call of Duty 2 is much more in-depth compared to its predecessor, Call of Duty. This particular campaign mode allows you to take control of four individual campaigns, which is split across three stories: Soviet, British, American.

The 27 missions will give you hours of gameplay and allow you to experience all sides of the war. You also have the option to choose from one of four difficulties: Easy, Regular, Hardened, and Veteran.

Multiplayer

One of the major problems with some of the more modern CoD titles is the amount of perks, weapons, and features — there’s just too much going on and this can be overwhelming for players, especially in multiplayer.

The Call of Duty 2 multiplayer will be an excellent way for you to dominate the competition if you want to rely solely on skill, not on perks or better weapons. Take your pick from numerous game types, including the following: Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, Capture the Flag, Headquarters, Search and Destroy.

Viability of Call of Duty 2

How many times have you purchased a new game, only to find out that you’re bored of the title after just a few hours? We are all too familiar with this feeling, so let’s take a quick look into the viability of Call of Duty 2.

First and foremost, because the title was released in 2005, it’s very inexpensive compared to the more modern releases. CoD 2 can be purchased for around $20 on PC, even cheaper if you purchase as part of a bundle.

For your money, you’re going to get hours of gameplay with the campaign, which comprises a total of 27 missions. You can also expect months of gameplay with the multiplayer mode, however, it could get boring after a while if you’re used to some of the more modern titles.

Closing Notes

Just like any of title in the series, Call of Duty 2 is a game that’s worth downloading. If you’re an avid player of some of the more modern titles then you might get bored quite quickly. However, it’s definitely worth a trial!

Pros

  • Back to basics WW2 game, entirely based on skill
  • Unique gameplay compared to other CoD titles
  • Excellent value for money

Cons

  • Hard to adjust to if you’re used to more modern titles
  • Gameplay will be limited for most
