The game showcased several perspectives around the second World War in Britain, America, and the Soviet Union. A resounding success of the game resulted Call of Duty games centering around the Cold War, futuristic worlds, and even outer space.

Activision, Treyarch or Infinity Ward release a new Call of Duty game every year. As a result, players have a wide range of options in choosing their favorite game in the series.

However, the absence of a Russian campaign was a major problem for many players. Critics of the game also highlight the Tactical Nuke killstreak, and its negative impact on the meta.

In contrast, titles like CoD 4: Modern Warfare and Black Ops not only improved on the aforementioned shortcomings in their campaigns, but set new benchmarks for the multiplayer mode in Call of Duty games.
