It's very similar to the first Call of Duty, if you liked that it's really enjoyable. Plus now that the game has been out a few months, there are modded servers with red dot accuracy. I like the addition of a shotgun, but on the other hand there is no artillery yet.

I do like COD2 multiplayer, but I still get more enjoyment from RTCW:ET. One of the main reasons is that RTCW:ET has class-based, objective-style play which promotes teamwork. I find that COD2, while it does have several different gametypes, is just a bit too chaotic and repetitive. That being said, the fantastic graphics and sounds in COD2 make it a truly immersive experience. IMO, it feels more realistic than any other WWII FPS game (not that I know what it was truly like). For that reason, I continue to play some COD2 multiplayer, mostly CTF since I think it involves the most teamwork.
I also feel that the COD2 engine is such that there will never be a huge spread between the average players and the great players. Aiming seems a bit weird to me, and in my experience anybody can kill anybody very easily. You don't see insane K/D ratios in COD2 like you do with games based on the Q3 engine. Maybe that's a good thing to some people, but I don't really like it. I like the fact that in RTCW:ET, a newbie has absolutely no chance of killing a skilled player in a SMG dual.
PS: You actually like that red-dot aiming mod? I find it extremely annoying. That's why they have down-the-sight aiming mode.KillrBuckeye

I have both COD and COD2 and I like to play COD more than COD2. Like KillrBuckeye said...the controls of the game just feel kind of funny. I do enjoy the game though...I just choose to play COD instead.

I played Cod:UO all the time but once I got used to CoD2 I play it more and more. I can still get the good K : D Raitos. 6:1 - 10:1 is usally what I average.

Personally I hated COD2 multiplayer because it was just random killing. COD2 SP was killer.
For MP BF2 is much better.RIP 1700+ JIUHB DLT3C@2.4GHZ-MSI Delta-L-1gb Muskin 3200 running Dual Channel-MSI 6600 128 MB-2x80gb Western Digital - R.I.P.

I gotta say I like CoD2. It's not a game I would play daily, but sometimes it can be alot of fun. The game is pretty fast, it runs very smooth in DX7 mode and the maps are cool. I think it's better than CoD1, cuz there are more weapons and maps. And yes, still many people are playing it online, and I don't think that will change anytime soon, because even CoD1 is still a popular game.

In my opinion, the multi-player is great. I play it almost everyday. I think the key is finding a few favorite servers.Personal: Intel E3110 - Biostar TPower I45 - 2x2Gb Mushkin Redline - eVGA GTX260 Core 216 - WD VelociRaptor 74Gb RAID 0 - Seasonic S12II Bronze 520w - Antec Twelve Hundred
