Call of Duty 2 review video

Call of Duty 2 for Xbox 360Call of Duty 2 lets players experience four individual soldier stories as they overcome insurmountable odds in multiple campaigns. Players have the freedom to follow each of the four storylines through for the ultimate character-driven experience, or they can engage in the historic battles chronologically for quick hitting action.

A launch title for Xbox 360, Call of Duty 2 was ported over from the PC original.

Infinity Ward has also expanded the First-Person Shooter scope of combat to deliver a truly realistic battlefield experience. Squads now have the freedom to take on a variety of mission objectives, on expansive battlefields that allow for multiple paths and the ability to utilize actual combat tactics like outflanking and fire and maneuver capabilities. Call of Duty 2’s new engine and A.I. technology set the stage for authentic squad combat and astonishing action. Concealment can be key as battlefield smoke or even deployed smoke grenades cloud visibility. Weather effects such as the dusty sandstorms of North Africa and whiteout blizzard conditions of Russia, for example, will keep soldiers glued to their bunkers. The team has also employed a state-of-the-art Battle Chatter System that brings the action to life as squad-mates bark out context-sensitive updates in real-time to players through an advanced A.I. system.

Call of Duty 2 is a blast from start to finish. Find out all about it in this Call of Duty 2 video review.

Kameo: Elements of Power review video (Xbox 360)

Kameo: Elements of Power for Xbox 360Kameo: Elements of Power is an epic adventure, full of exploration and intense combat. The future of the world depends on Kameo, who must capture, grow, and unleash a wide assortment of incredible monsters to combat ever-present evil and rescue her three Elemental Ancestors from the Dark Troll King — who threatens the planet and its wildlife.

Originally scheduled for release on Xbox in 2003 (after the GameCube version was cancelled), Kameo for Xbox was moved to the console’s successor, the Xbox 360.

Blending the heady thrills of exploration and puzzle-solving with the adrenaline rush of real-time 3D battles, Kameo: Elements of Power is an ambitious title from the makers of GoldenEye and Banjo-Kazooie. The concept mixes combat action with creature transformations, letting the title’s female star morph into monsters and use their special powers against others as Kameo searches out and battles ever-present evil. The Xbox 360 game also features multiplayer co-op play, both online and offline (split-screen).

One of the most developed and fulfilling games for the Xbox 360 launch lineup. Learn all about it in this Kameo: Elements of Power video review.
