An excellent expansion to the original Call of Duty. I think at least as good if not better than the first game. Its got air battles, tanks battles, jeep chases, shootouts in rail yards and all the usual WWII FPS fighting. Can't fault it. Its totally playable.

CoD UO improves a lot of the features that you saw back in CoD1, what with it being an expansion and all.

Uhm... it's fun I guess? Play it if you want. It's not something I would spend dozens of playthroughs doing but it is worth a try. Check it out.

The expansion for Call of Duty 1. It actually works on Steam so thats a good aspect.
It resembles the same great First Person shooter, still with no health regeneration (medkits only), now using aircrafts and other new scenery like snow and weapons.
Very good game, and challenging!
8/10

This along with Call of Duty 1 was the first game that I put more than 100 hours into. It's incredible to be able to play it again even if the servers in aus barely have anyone on them. The nostalgia is trong with this one 10/10

Персональный рейтинг - 7,5 из 10

Отгремели раскаты взрывов, отшумели пулеметные очереди, и рык танковых двигателей сотрясал землю. 3 кампании в оригинальной Call of Duty получили сюжетное дополнение. Отрадно, что аддон United Offensive хоть и поддерживает мультиплеер, но основной целью ставит все же расширение сингловой кампании. 3 новых героя, ведущие неравный бой на полях брани, новые задания, включающие и лихие гонки с преследованием, оборону и удержание ключевых позиций, штурмы, диверсии и многое другое. Во всяком случае, по накалу царящих на экране страстей, по уровню исполнения, режиссуры и постановки, United Offensive кладет на обе лопатки оригинальную игру. Именно здесь понимаешь где берет свое начало колосс, ставший примером для подражания и эталоном скриптовых шутеров Call of Duty 4 - Modern Warfare.

Все 3 кампании про бойцов американской, британской и советской армий удались на славу. Обидно, что вот только грандиозное танковое сражение под Прохоровкой, сыгравшее одну из ключевых ролей в бою на Курской дуге выглядит как небольшая танковая стычка. Что странно, учитывая что со стороны СССР в бою участвовало по меньшей мере 600 танков против 300 танков с немецкой стороны.

Тем не менее, аддон на твердую пятерку. Рекомендую к ознакомлению тем, кто еще этого не сделал в свое время.

Personal rating - 7,5 out of 10

Intense barrage fire, rapid machine gun chatter and roaring of massive tank engines were shaking the ground. 3 campaigns from original Call of Duty recieved an action-packed add-on which raises the bar and gives advancement to CoD franchise. Good to know despite of having a multiplayer mode, United Offensive makes emphasis on single player experience. 3 new heroes, new set of perilous missions which include daring pursuits, defensive and offensive operations, assaults, diversions and more. And I must say with all certainty that the action UO delivers leaves no chances to original CoD campaign in terms of direction, gameflow and overall arrangement. Say, one mission here feels like an entire british campaign from the original. Playing UO gives you a solid understanding of where the roots of critically acclaimed Call of Duty 4, the pinnacle of the series, are hidden.

All 3 campaigns are directed and implemented on the same top-notch level. The only minus is a fact that one of the mightiest and grandiose tank battles in history, battle at Prokhorovka, looks like a typical and ordinary tank assault. Just know it was much much bigger than it was showed in the game, considering around 600 soviet and 300 german tanks clashed on the battlefield.

Despite of that, I enjoyed playing UO. You should too, in case you didn't do it before.

Although I've only logged 10 hours on Steam with this game, I've been playing this game since day one and I have over 10,000 hours logged on legacy platforms like X-Fire.

Call of Duty: United Offensive is the best addition in the franchise by far. No weapon skins, no perks, no kill streaks. Those things don't make a game great in the slightest.

Starting with the Campaign. To this day I still go back and revisit the campaign at least once a year, the campaign is action packed, tells a fantastic story of some of the battles during World War 2, although the graphics, animation and physics do not compare to the newer versions of Call of Duty or new games in general, playing through the Campaign never fails to entertain me.


Call of Duty United Offensive has bought me probably the best multiplayer I have ever played, again it's dated compared to games nowadays but you can't get more fun than going through Foy in a jeep or tank with your friends or even going it alone will bring endless hours of fun.

Unfortunately, the Multiplayer is not as active as it used to be, however there are still plenty of servers running stock maps and generic settings.

Mods are another thing that make United Offensive such a great game. There are so many different maps (Both serious and silly) the game will never go stale and unlike modern versions of the Franchise which release yearly and provide no modification tools to the community, effectively making the game stale after a year.

Is the game worth getting? Yes
Is it worth $24? Yes and No. A 10 year old game should be cheaper.

If this game is ever on sale, I recommend this game for hours of something new and fresh.

If you like the current state of Call of Duty, stop reading this.



...Okay, now that I've weeded out the plebs, let's get down to buisness. This is the definitive Call of Duty game. Great story, fun multiplayer, it's all in there, and better than the modern bullcrap that Activision is pulling out of their proverbial butt nowadays. Here's an overview.

The Campaign

The story in United Offensive is based on the happenings of actual battles of WWII. Throughout the campaign (which includes 15 missions), you'll play as Amercians, Russians, and the British. Instead of today's ridiculous "get behind cover to magically recover health", you'll be dealing with a health bar that can only be replentished with health packs. Instead of a one-man army, you have somewhat competent ai allies who can actually take down enemies (unlike another game I know...). There are one or two missions where you are on your own, but even then you aren't alone for long.
The multiplayer is fun, but sadly mostly dead nowadays. There is a greater variety of maps than there are in the new CoD games, some of which are large and have vehicles (Yes, I said VEHICLES, like, TANKS) and some of which are small and made for close-quarters. Guns have recoil, and the guns with the best range are single-shot bolt-action rifles. It takes more skill to be good in UO than it does in any game after it.
Sidenote: YOU CAN LEAN AROUND CORNERS. The same mechanic ironically was one of the key points of CoD: Ghosts E3 presentation last year. All they did was re-add a feature that had been stripped out.

Other Stuffs

Here comes everyone's biggest gripe: the graphics. I personally don't care how the graphics look, and I will say that even then they look better then certain "AAA" games nowadays. There are little to no physics, just death animations when you kill enemies. The voice acting is superb. The sound can also be commended for the time the game was released.

Closing

CoD: UO is worth buying. I would wait for a sale though. I think the battle chest which includes UO along with CoD and CoD 2 goes half off once in a while. Even if you are pleb, this game is worth playing as a reminder than CoD was not always a pleb game, and may in fact help cure your plebness.

Even though it is an expansion to the first Call Of Duty, United Offensive is one of the best games in the franchise. Because it is an expansion, UO does not waste any time with tutorials or hand holding as the game begins with a bang and never stops until the end. If you played COD1 you know what to expect gameplay wise, but UO stands out with its missions and level design. Just does a good job of mixing things up. My favorite part is probably the British campaign. If you like the COD franchise or WWII shooters in general, I would recomend UO. Word of warning though, you should probably own and install COD1 along side of it.

Decent addon. Brits campaign is the best in the series so far. The only flaw - the main game must be installed too.

The following is only representative of the single player campaign:

Surprisingly, this is the most scripted Call of Duty game/expansion ever produced.

At several points, any movement slightly off script will lead to an instant death from sniper fire, tank shells, or artillery.

As the levels are significantly longer than the first game, it is incredibly likely you will run into a scripting error. If you were several seconds late behind your captain in the first part of a mission, forget being able to rescue him when he is downed in the second part of the mission - the game assumes you were right behind him the entire time, forcing you to replay 10-15 minute sections to ensure you are in the proper position to continue with the level.

The objective marker has also seemingly been programmed by 45 different people that have never talked, emailed, or followed any project guidelines. The marker will sometimes point to where you need to go, where you need to run away from, where the weapons are to blow up the tank, where the tank is but not where the weapon is that you need to blow up the tank, etc.

Overall, this might actually be the worst Call of Duty campaign. Ghosts’ Campaign was run of the mill, but this is kinda straight broken.
