Call of Duty 2 was a huge success when it was released 2005. It was one of the best rated first person shooters ever at the time. The graphics and missions were captivating so the game sold millions of copies right away. The single player campaign put you through the thick and thin that the Allies had to go through on all fronts. But where did the inspiration for the maps and storyline come from?
World War two movies and series were popular in the late 90s and early 2000s. titles like the Band of Brothers, Enemy at the Gates, Saving Private Ryan were all works of art and movies that made a huge success. Well, they are responsible for most maps and settings in COD2 and COD United Offensive.
The most popular multiplayer map was Carentan. If you had that weird “I’ve seen this before” feeling, you were probably right. The map was designed based on a scene in Band of Brothers. The entire map looks completely the same as it does in the series. The Soviet maps were based on the movie Enemy at the Gates, even the single player missions are similar to the movie.
The expansion called United Offensive was released a year after the original game. It had completely new campaign missions and maps, again based on the Band of Brothers series. The best map is Foy, Belgium, and it looks exactly like it does on the movie screen.
Bringing the actual war into a game isn’t easy at all. It’s a long process that involves a lot of research, but also interviews with retired war veterans that were fighting in that war. The guys from Infinity Ward did a great job at interviewing and capturing the experiences of some of these former soldiers. Details of their stories were even incorporated into the storyline in-game.
Call of Duty 2 is one of those legendary games that will be remembered forever in the game Hall of Fame. It is definitely a game that brought new ideas to the market and raised the bar for other titles in the future.
The Zombie apocalypse is one of the most popular settings for video games and movies in the past decade. There is something scary but super fun about being surrounded by flesh-eating dead people who feel no pain. Well, Dying Light is another game title that puts you in the world packed with zombies, but it brings a completely new experience with the awesome parkour elements.
This game has an awesome story line and things get crazy right from the start. You take the role of Kyle Crane, who is an undercover operative sent to the infected city of Harran. Your task is to find Kadir Suleiman, the man responsible for the outbreak. You are to steal a file that could compromise your entire agency.
The game starts as you jump from a plane and land right into a firefight between some paramilitary soldiers and zombies. One of the zombies bites you right away and you spend the rest of the game fighting the virus while fighting your way through hordes of zombies. You will be using melee weapons at the beginning, but you’ll find firearms as the game progresses.
Like we said before, this game combines super-fast paced action with free running. You are able to quickly climb up buildings and scale over walls while breaking the skulls of zombies at the same time. The game has two different settings, one during the day and the other when the night falls.
During the day, you have all advantages over the zombies. They are slow and easy to avoid if necessary. You can fight a dozen zombies by yourself if you have the skills, but if they start winning, getting away is really easy. The real problems start when the night falls.
Your situation changes drastically when night comes. Instead of the hunter, you become the hunted. All zombies gain speed and agility, and they become able to scale buildings and run after you no matter where you go. The night also brings out Volatiles, a mutated type of zombie that has super strength and speed. Your only option is to run to the nearest safehouse if you run into a pack of zombies. They will not follow you into areas with a working light.
Are you going to keep the outbreak a secret, or will you expose the ones responsible for so much death? The choice is up to you, but remember, every action has consequences.
