Call to Duty: Finest Hour is a first person shooter focusing on a soldier fighting through various World War II battles. There have been numerous other games attempting this same type of game format and to standout amid the various high quality games this year or others in this genre, something about the game needs to be fairly unique or at least impress with its execution. Unfortunately, Call to Duty: Finest Hour really doesn't do this.
That's not to say it's junk. On the contrary, Call to Duty: Finest Hour gives a reasonable performance. It just doesn't offer anything to set it apart. The controls for instance work fine but don't give the feel of a soldier crossing the difficult terrain of a World War II battlefield. Aiming and firing weapons have a similar issue as they aren't that enjoyable to use. The aim function for instance feels stiff and firing the weapons lacks a sense of realism.
The graphics and audio are also average. There is plenty of room for improvement with the detail associated in the environment and explosions but there is enough there to keep it from being noticeably deficient. The audio can be described in a similar fashion with decent war sound effects and voiceovers.
Call to Duty: Finest Hour could have been better in many areas but still gives a solid performance. It's not cutting edge or innovative but fans of this genre will be satisfied. A rental however will probably do just as well for many others.
