Sgt. Benny Church:
So, we're looking for a bridge that probably isn't even there?
Lt. Chuck Walker:
A bridge would provide a direct link for the Allies to cross through the Rhine. The Krauts aren't stupid enough to let that happen.

Good on the console, doesn't compare to the PC game!
Call of Duty Finest Hour brings nothing new to the FPS genre but sheds new light on WWII. The campaigns in this game are not usually seen in movies or games. As a Russian female sniper, you'll move through the sewers of Stalingrad and upon your arrival to the surface, will defend a warehouse containing the T34 tank you will later escape on. As an African tank Sargent you will fight through Bastogne against all sorts of armor. As a British PPA commando you will demo objects of strategic importance in a German motor pool, then escape by jeep across the deserts of Africa. The rest of the time you'll be playing similar roles to those found in the other Call of Duty games, a Russian conscript thrust into Stalingrad, a Russian tank commander, and an American Sargent fighting through Germany. The campaigns stray away from the norm but are not anything extremely exciting, after playing the first games. However, if you can't play Call of Duty on the comp, this is an excellent game that stands up against even the toughest of competition, Medal of Honor Frontline. The graphics aren't mind bending or awe inspiring but they are nice enough, as is the frame rate. The sound design is great and is probably the one thing truly driving the intense feel of Finest Hour. Now, I play WWII shooters on both PS2 and PC so I know what I'm talking about and trust me, this game is very good but because not everyone feels the same, rent this game first. In Febuary 2005 Brothers in Arms comes out and this looks truly amazing so if your waiting to get one really good WWII game, wait and check Brothers in Arms out.
