Call of Duty 2 is a first-person shooter video game and the sequel to Call of Duty. It was developed by Infinity Ward and published by Activision. The game is set during World War II and is experienced through the perspectives of soldiers in the Red Army, British Army, and United States Army. It was released on October 25, 2005 for Microsoft Windows, November 15, 2005 for the Xbox 360, and June 13, 2006, for Mac OS X. Other versions were made for mobile phones, Pocket PCs, and smartphones.
Black Ops is a first-person shooter, retaining the same gameplay mechanics as previous Call of Duty titles. The player assumes the role of a foot soldier who can wield various firearms (only two of which can be carried at once), throw grenades and other explosives, and use other equipment as weapons. A player close enough to an enemy can kill with one knife blow. A character can take three stances: standing, crouching or prone. Each affects rate of movement, accuracy, and stealth. The player can drop to the prone stance from the standing stance while running (colloquially known as "dolphin diving"), and can momentarily sprint before having to stop. The screen glows red to indicate damage to a player's health, which regenerates over time. When the character is within the blast radius of a live grenade, an on-screen marker indicates where it is in relation to the player, helping the player to move away or to throw it back. Among the weapons new to the series in Black Ops are crossbows with bolts and explosive ammunition, Dragon's Breath rounds and ballistic knives.
Excellent game! Battlefield returns to it's foundation of intense, unique and creative game play. The single player game play is incredible, however it is too short, I'm assuming they'll be releasing more levels in updates. The multiplayer is fairly balanced and seems to be that a battle can change at a moments notice, as there doesn't seem to be one dominating vehicle/weapon over others. Def. recommend this game
Some people do like the multiplayer formula (online), and I will admit I was one of them. But CoD is just nothing new. It's boring. I can't recommend anyone to pick up this game for the multiplayer aspect, but if you love zombies this game is more than worth it. Also, even though I dislike the multiplayer portions anyway, the online in Black Ops is better than Modern Warfare 3.
For Black Ops, Treyarch focused only on this game unlike past practice. However, it had different teams, each working on separate game modes. Treyarch used a motion capture technology similar to the one used in James Cameron's film Avatar, which allows accurate facial expressions, capturing the whole performance of the actor. The studio also consulted special forces veterans from both belligerents of the Cold War: Major John Plaster (US Army-Ret.) who served in the MACV-SOG during the Vietnam War, and former Soviet special forces operative Sonny Puzikas. The latter taught Treyarch how Spetsnaz soldiers would react in combat, such as rolling out of the line of fire. Spetsnaz AIs in the game have been modeled after him, from his tactics and his movements to his face. Although having a historical background, the classified aspect of these Cold War black operations allowed the studio to create its own fictional story. The game also allows players to turn down the blood and turn off the profanity.
Blackout, The mode that most of the development time went into. Chasing the trends with popular games like Pubg and Fortnite. But it’s actually really well made. Call of Duty manage to transfer there fast paced gameplay in a BR mode. This hands down the best first person Battle Royale game on consoles period. Call of Duty Black Out has 100 players dropping in a map from various multiplayer and zombie maps and it just works for me. There have been people running into issues but lucky in my experience nothing but smooth sailing. You can unlock various black ops characters with challenges. The mode is a lot of fun and it went from being scorned as a cheap cash grab to being the best thing Call of Duty has done since Black Ops 2. Great job Treyarch for beating the skeptics. However the game is not perfect.

On April 17, 1961, Mason, Woods, and Bowman take part in Operation 40 to assassinate Fidel Castro in Cuba during the Bay of Pigs Invasion. Mason apparently succeeds and stays behind to protect the extraction plane from an oncoming blockade, before being captured by the real Castro, having shot a double. Handed over to Major General Nikita Dragovich to be held captive at Vorkuta Gulag, Mason befriends inmate and former Red Army soldier Viktor Reznov. Reznov recounts to Mason the identities of their enemies: Dragovich, his right-hand man Lev Kravchenko, and ex-Nazi scientist Friedrich Steiner, who defected to the Soviet Union. In October 29, 1945, Reznov and Dimitri Petrenko were sent to extract Steiner from a Nazi base in the Arctic. However, they were betrayed by Dragovich, who tested Steiner's nerve gas known as "Nova 6" on Petrenko, killing him. Reznov was spared the same fate when British Commandos, also interested in acquiring Nova 6, attacked the Soviets. Reznov destroyed the Nova 6 and escaped, only to be captured by the Soviets and sent to Vorkuta. The Soviets later recreated Nova 6 with the help of a British scientist, Daniel Clarke.
OUTNUMBERED, OUTGUNNED, BUT NOT OUTMATCHED. This new chapter in the Call of Duty® franchise features a fresh dynamic, where players are on the side of a crippled nation, fighting not for freedom, or liberty, but simply to survive. Special Operations forces, a mysterious group known only as "Ghosts", lead the battle against a newly-emerged, technologically-superior, global power.
I'll start off with this because it's short and it's my personal opinion on their choice in cosmetics. I'm happy to say the prosthetic limb is gone along with anything that doesn't really fit the WW2 mold, but they've still kept in some of the rugged appearances to give players a unique look. I can't really fault this because it is a video game and many players like having a way to distinguish themselves on the battlefield. The base cosmetics each have a "camo" you can unlock by completing challenges and you don't buy them. There are cosmetics you can purchase in store, but the looks you can unlock hail from the days of Red Tiger camo in CoD Modern Warfare 1 when it was an achievement. There's not a ton to choose from at the moment, but I imagine as the game continues on, we'll get more of a wardrobe.
Call of Duty was developed by Infinity Ward, a new studio formed in 2002 originally consisting of 21 employees, many of whom were project lead developers of the successful Medal of Honor: Allied Assault released the same year.

Using an enhanced version of the id Tech 3 game engine developed for Quake III Arena and an in-house skeletal animation system called "Ares", Infinity Ward set out to develop a new World War II-era video game that, unlike many of its predecessors, placed more emphasis on squad-based play with intelligent assistance from teammates during large-scale battles. The team also extensively researched weapons, artillery, and vehicles from World War II to enhance the authenticity of animation and sounds used throughout the game.

Blackout currently has 20 character skins available to play as, including the cast from Zombies and the Black Ops 4 specialists but to get access to their special abilities you’ll need to find them as rare items across the map. Other character skins are on the way and can be unlocked by completing missions. Blackout will feature limited time events with unlockable content, but it was confirmed in a Q&A with design director David Vonderhaar that this will not apply to getting new skins.

That’s clearly enough for millions of fans, but it makes it far from a must-have – you probably own the best bits already. As polished and pretty and fun as Black Ops often is, it feels more like a yearly update than a sequel, a new campaign with old multiplayer. The game isn’t distinct from its predecessors in any important way, and fatigue sets in quicker than before.
