This was the game that took my COD virginity and as such it retains a special place in my gaming library, to the extent that I'm writing a review five or so years after it was first released.
An old school FPS, it's main strength remains the online multi-player mode where you can battle in a number of maps with even more available for purchase and with a number of highly customizable weapons to suit your style of play. The solo campaign mode is equally brilliant with some very cinematic missions that really get the blood pumping. The down-side is that it is somewhat short and once completed, there isn't anything else on offer besides the multi-player (unless you count the arcade mode - essentially just a timed version of the normal campaign).
The truest fun lies in playing this game in a lobby alongside a group of your friends and you're all screaming down the mics at each other but even playing the multiplayer alone remains incredibly fun. The downside is fewer and fewer people are playing this game online as it becomes older (but is still not at all outdated) and it's not uncommon to see only 30-40 people playing a particular game mode (although Ground War still remains popular).
This game provided me with some of my most unforgettable gaming experiences. I'm going to echo what the previous review has said, for me this is the game of the franchise and none of its successors quite manage to capture the same feel.
In my opinion this is the best call of duty in the whole franchise. Why? Because the online multiplayer mode was perfect and the single player campaign was great. The online multiplayer action is so addictive it gets you playing for hours without realising what the time is.
The different guns,perks and game modes gives you so much choice.
The graphics are great and the gameplay is so fast and exciting.
The single player campaign is really good, there are scenarios that keep you guessing what will happen next and brings you to the edge of your seat. The different difficulty levels help when a mission is too difficult and if you can finish it on veteran then you are definitely a pro at the game.
Overall I think this is the best call of duty so far and the creators will have to come up with something spectacular if they are going to better this game.
