Having another installment from Activision in the Call Of Duty series is a great thing for those of us that want a “Quick”,”Realistic”, and “Multi-Player” game.
COD 5 is offered for the Playstation 3, and XBox 360. Intense 12 on 12 internet play, Lan Play, and multi-player split screen are just some of the highlights.
COD4 was based on war as it would be currently, while COD5 is based on war as it would have been in the past. Voiceovers are done by Keiffer Sutherland of “24”.
