Did You Know?


The level name S.S.D.D may be a reference to Stephen King's novel, 'Dreamcatcher'. S.S.D.D ("Same Shit, Different Day") is a phrase used through out the book by the main characters. Also, Shepherd's first line in the cut scene, "The more things change, the more they stay the same" might also be a small reference to King's 'Thinner', where the line is spoken. See more »


The Russian Federation Army is still using 1960ish military equipment, should they go to war, they would use their modern tech. such as the MiG-35, AK-103, and RPG-29 among several things. See more »


Price: ["Endgame"; voice recording, regarding Shepherd] This is for the record. History is written by the victor. History is filled with liars. If he lives and we die, his truth becomes written - and ours is lost. Shepherd will a hero, 'cause all you need to change the world is one good lie and a river of blood. He's about to complete the greatest trick a liar ever played on history. But only if he lives, and we die.

I've played enough of it and I am wondering about the hype
20 November 2011 | by (Valhalla) – See all my reviews

CALL OF DUTY: a FPS that reinacts events of war (or so they say) during WWII and with this game the modern warfare of today.

I have played the multiplayer and I thought it was boring, I played the mode with small challenges and then I thought that the game was a little overrated, I went to the story last (which was not a good sign) and during the tutorial I thought "f##k this!!!" and gave up What exactly makes these games so popular? I enjoyed it a little but I thought it was extremely overrated, calling these games "best FPS ever" would be like calling "Stan Helsing" top 250 material.

The gameplay in this is bland (because of setting it in modern times), most of the challenge missions are the same, run around map, kill people YOUR WINNER! I didn't really get that far into the story for an actual plot but the idea of putting a tutorial mission at the beginning of a game, I have never been a fan of that. and from reading the plot synopsis it sounds like "USA are the good guys the Russians are evil", I don't know about you it sounds like an "old bag full of tricks" as one would call it.

I would suggest if you want a good war game I'd suggest the Halo series, at least it brings something new to the chair unlike this which looks like generic American war movie crap, if you want to experience something that portrays war well, I suggest looking up the 1989 film The Winter War (195 minute version).

If you want a better game then I'd suggest to you stuff like Max Payne, The Darkness (for a FPS), DOOM (to take a look back on the classics on the FPS genre) as far as other games go this is one of the worst and I am including HALO REACH here where the action is bland

Overall: I would rent it but I'd never buy these games
