Since Call of Duty: Finest Hour
shares some strong similarities to the Medal of Honor
series, one of my all-time favorites, I will have to draw some comparisons. Both are war-time shooters and both immerse you straight into battle. However, it seemed that Call of Duty: Finest Hour
just didn't get it as right as Medal of Honor
did. For starters, Finest Hour
seemed more tedious. The missions involved running through areas teaming with enemies, taking over enemy strongholds, defending areas or tanks, battling against incoming air attacks, etc. But I just never felt driven to get to that next mission to see what was coming up next. It all just seemed like the same thing, over and over.
You are provided with numerous weapons at your disposal, some you grab from your fallen comrades and others that you get from dead enemies or find along the way. However, you have to physically pick each item up that you come across and this can get tough in the middle of a firefight. Also, you can only carry two weapons at a time and this makes your decision of which weaposn to pick up very important.
Your battles will take you across the Eastern Front, then on to North Africa and finally to the Western Front. You can choose to go it alone in the Single Player misisons or play online in Multiplayer. In Multiplayer, you'll find the standard game types such as Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, Capture the Flag and Search and Destroy. Voice chat is also supported.
