About the Game

Call of Duty® delivers the gritty realism and cinematic intensity of World War II's epic battlefield moments like never before - through the eyes of citizen soldiers and unsung heroes from an alliance of countries who together helped shape the course of modern history.
Play through the chaos of battle as part of a well-trained squad, that lays down covering fire and pulls its wounded to safety. In addition to authentic squad movements and tactics, each soldier's distinct personality and training comes out on the battlefield.
No one soldier or nation single-handedly won the war. For the first time, Call of Duty® captures the war from multiple perspectives, through the eyes of American, British and Russian soldiers. Battle through 24 missions spanning 4 interconnected historical campaigns. Take on mission objectives ranging from sabotage and all-out assault to stealth, vehicle combat and rescue. Authentic weapons, locations, vehicles and sounds of war all contribute to the realism, immersing you in the most intense World War II experience yet.

Shoot things, move to a new area, shoot more things. Call of Duty may seem a little dated, but it's still a fun game. It's only a 3 or so hour campaign though so maybe wait until it drops on sale.

Минули события, пропитанные болью и страданиями, запахом смерти и пеплом сгоревших городов. Отрадно осознавать, что тема Второй Мировой Войны и поныне остается одной из самых популярных в среде разработчиков игр. Что уж говорить про начало двухтысячных, когда технологии шагнули вперед и создателям был выдан карт-бланш на создание игр своей мечты. Поклонники шутеров не могли пройти мимо амбициозной и мало кому известной на тот момент игры Call of Duty, рассказывающей простую и бесхитростную, но полную опасностей и лихих поворотов историю трех обычных солдат американской, британской и советской армий.

Янки и подданные британской короны - операция Оверлорд, целью которой стояло освобождение Нормандии и севера Франции летом 44-го. Операция, о которой, кажется, знают даже большинство наших соотечественников благодаря голливудским фильмам про бравых американских рейнджеров, голыми руками берущих Гитлера за ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥. И младший сержант Алексей Воронин, боец РККА, снайпер, участник Сталинградской битвы, Висло-Одерской операции и взятия Берлина.

Не вижу смысла описывать игровой процесс Call of Duty. Единственное замечание... или, скорее, предостережение. Прошу, не принимайте события, изложенные в советской кампании за истину. Если вам дорога память о тех событиях, если вы чтите свою историю и тема Великой Отечественной для вас не пустой звук, не воспринимайте больные фантазии разработчиков всерьез. Ибо часть эпизодов, показанных в игре, по сути эксплуатирует самые мерзкие, обывательские и расхожие штампы о Восточном фронте, искажая правду и создавая превратный образ бойца Красной Армии, ставя под сомнение его решающую роль в освобождении Европы.

Приятной игры и не забывайте историю. Это то, чем мы по праву можем и должны гордиться.

Many years have passed since these grave events when the world was on fire and nations gripped by fear, with taste of death and suffer in the air with consistent tinge of ash and smoke. Good to know WWII still remains a popular theme amongst game developers. Now imagine the beginning of 00s when new technologies granted limitless possibilities for various studios all around the globe to make their dreams come true. Infinity Ward was one of those teams and their Call of Duty, being a new guest in the parade of WWII shooters, has been keeping it's legacy alive for years and managed to turn into one of the most popular and best-selling franchises in the industry.

Yankees and brits, fighting together on the killing fields of Europe and Normandy. Operation Overlord, June 1944. We have heard about that many times thanks to movies and Hollywood flicks. And soviet conscript, struggling ruthlessly on the Eastern Front, sniper, one of many brave souls who took their part in fighting for Stalingrad, Vistula-Oder Offensive and Battle in Berlin.

I don't want to talk about the game itself, you know what Call of Duty is about. All I want to add is a minor note. Or should I say... warning. Please, do not accept events described in Soviet campaign as a truth, because it is not. It lies far away from being close to truth and doesn't stand up to criticism. For a fair share of episodes depicted in the game basicallly exploits the most ordinary and narrow-minded cliches about Eastern Front offensive. Cliches that are deceitful, disrespectful and mostly imaginary, twisting and falsifying the truth, making people and some events look the way they have never looked like.

Enjoy the game and know your history.

This was my Counter-Strike growing up. I love this game. The amount of people still playing this is incredible. This Call of Duty will forever be the best one. Forget Modern Warfare. This is the best one. You have to play this game even if you hate call of duty. This is nothing like Modern Warfare.

10/10 toasts i will love cod 1 forever

My first COD was World at War. When I saw the first COD on sale, I decided to pick it up and see how well it holds up. To my pleasant surprise, it's quite fun and captivating--in some ways even more fun than the later ones. The graphics are of course dated, but not to the point where you can't get immersed or make out detail. I particularly like the historical setting. There are some poignant moments, though the characters are mostly flat. This one is more about the experience than character drama.

Brings me back! Do you remember when Call of Duty felt unique? When Call of Duty wasn't looked down on and "laughed" at? When it wasn't the butt of the joke? pepperidge farm remembers, that's why we recommend that you play this classic maybe you'll remember too.
