I remember when Call of Duty first came out
on the PC and it was good. Infinity Ward actually created something special and did so for three more games. Their fourth effort falls a little short in terms of quality from the other three though but there's one great thing about Modern Warfare 2
if you got one of the special editions. You get to play the classic game for free on the console.
The original Call of Duty
is coming to the PS3 and 360 this week for a price of 1200 MS points or $14.99 on the PS3 on Wednesday and Thursday respectively. Aspyr did the porting of the game and if you never played the game before, it's a great pickup. I still have the original CD for the PC and I might just have to pop it back in to play some again. This is the first time the original is being made available on a console so I'm interested to see if there are any improvements made over the original.
