Activision calls Xbox 360 gamers to join the battle for Europe with CALL OF DUTY 2. Set during World War II, the game puts players in several different roles as they battle across Europe in ten different missions. Like the first CALL OF DUTY for the PC, the sequel drops players into a number of different characters and situations. Gamers start off in the role of a Russian private repealing Germans in Moscow, then move to the deserts of North Africa as a British soldier, and finally join the D-Day invasion by scaling the cliffs of Pointe du Hoc as an American corporal. Each location is very distinct and life-like, recreating the area nearly identically to how it appeared during the war. One major difference in the CALL OF DUTY series is that it always reminds players they are in the middle of a war. Allied soldiers battle alongside gamers through every level, planes can often be seen engaging in dogfights, and, in levels near the ocean, players can spot naval battles. All of these small details will make players feel like they are in the middle of a massive battle. The game also offers a number of online modes, including deathmatch, capture the flag, search and destroy, and team play, and split-screen multiplayer mode is also available. Gamers who enjoy first person shooters and historical war buffs who enjoy games will find CALL OF DUTY 2?s unique take on missions and the war a fun change of pace.
