Kicking Hitler's butt...
I've completed Call of Duty 1 & 2 and am currently making my way through Call of Duty 3, all on Xbox.
What an experience...dropping bombs out of B-52's, taking down planes with huge anti-aircraft guns, being chased by german tanks through narrow European streets, door to door fighting in bombed out villages, trench warfare, driving jeeps like a madman under air and enemy gun fire...on and on it goes. What a history lesson too! It's an inspiring game to see, hear and experience WW2 in a limited but engaging way.
It givens me a greater appreciation of the old marine songs my grand pa used to sing to me while we would drive in his pickup.
