There is no contrived plot. You’re just playing through epic battles from WWII.
It’s still rated T. It’s not super dark, or gritty. You don’t have a bunch of ugly dudes getting angry and swearing a bunch, and trying to make you cringe by performing particularly inhumane acts.
You get to play as the British and Russians, as well as Americans, and get to fight in different environments. Snowy bombed out Russian cities, vast African deserts, and French villages and countryside.
Each mission stands on its own, so if you want to come back to this game for a quick battle or two, you can easily jump into whichever mission you want to. There are no long, unskippable cutscenes that make replay a chore.
The characters are not memorable at all (expect Price, with his mustache, and MacGregor, with his Scottish accent), and those that do stick around are one-dimensional. There is no character development.
But you’re not really here for a plot or story. You’re here to take part in epic WWII battles, and CoD2 does that spectacularly.
