Well, a very short demo level -- but really good!

I have the game....one of the best WW2 games EVER!

Also one of the best running Mac games recently, ran like a dream on my MDD 1ghz with Geforce 4MX 64 mb at 1280x1024.

In the actual game, the levels are very original, very authentic, and quite challenging towards the end of the game.

Call of Duty is a good game, however I'm waiting for Battlefield 1942 -- you're gonna love it! :D Pilot tanks, trucks, jeeps, planes boats or work as an infantry, medic, engineer, scout, or anti-tank soldiers. Very cool! :eek:

I agree a short demo.

Feels the same as MOH to me. It's hard to say the demo was to short.

Quite frankly, Call Of Duty is blowing my mind. I've been through it once at the easiest difficulty, and now I'm going through it with a harder setting.
The graphics and attention to detail are very impressive. In that level with the huge dam, I had to just sit and stare at the water flowing over the dam. This a very good job of porting a game for the Mac. I'm running it on a G4 1.25 single, with a Radeon 9000 Pro. I've got all the game settings maxed out.

Yeah. The detals are awesome.

About that dam. It's not in the demo (that I saw, anyway). Did you play the legit version? Has anybody played it online?

CoD has a much more dynamic and fluid feel to it than MoH does -- to me.

I've got the full version which I pre-ordered direct from Aspyr. But I haven't played it online. I've read that the amount of cheating while playing Call Of Duty online, ruins it. There's quite a few posts regarding multiplayer cheating in CoD, in the forum on the Inside Mac Games web site.

That's really dissapointing. I like to play MoH online, where people heat as well -- though not as bad as to warrant press about it -- and there's anit-cheating software that can be run on the server to boot the bastards out. GREAT STUFF! Surely, such software does or will exist for CoD.

You're right, apparently there's a patch coming that will help with the cheating thing. Here's a link to the thread on Inside Mac Games, they eventually get into a Mhz battle between Macs & PC's, but it's interesting anyway...

Good to know.

Anyhoo, the AI on CoD seems REALLY good! Your ally partners lay down covering fire. They warn you to keep your head down. The Nazis shuck and jive around walls and windows and they react to a grenade toss. There's lots of troop chatter. And MAN if you get within rifle-butt distance of one of them, you're a goner -- FAST!

I downloaded the demo and love it, where can I buy the full version? Probably mail order in Canada I'm in little old Saskatchewan.

You can buy it online at Aspyr:

BUT, if you do, use their mail/fax order form. The shipping is WAY cheaper with it.
