Probably the easiest of the CoD games. Some areas will kill you and others will be a nice breeze in the park. Top game and one of my favourite WW games!

Allow some time though - 20+ hours for me, but less if you are a veteran playing on veteran!

thanks for the info on this. i've only played through MW2 and beat it on veteran, but i've heard some intimidating things about the other CoD games. sounds like WaW is maybe the hardest? i've also read MW2 was easier than MW.

It is pretty hard going at times and as you are using older weapons, it does seem to restrict the flow. But it is the most enjoyable.

I think MW2 is easier than MW and WaW I got quite a chunk of the way through before dropping down a difficulty (I know, I'm weak...)

CoD games are do-able on veteran, but for the most part, it is down to persistence! Keep at it and you'll get there. And in all fairness, the game is so addictive, you do stick at it!

MW2 was far and away the easiest on veteran in my opinion. Although I still haven't gotten around to finishing yet. I thought Modern Warfare was harder than COD 2 and, in my opinion at least, WAW was definitely the hardest. It definitely had its and moments.

I beg to differ!

CoD2 isnt easy, I've beaten most CoDs except the spam nading WaW and 3 <-- havent got round to 3 yet, on vet and CoD2 was a bitch.

You cant through back nades, some levels are based on pure luck... It is imo and many others if you'd searched the forum on of the hardest out there!

I normally start new CoDs on vet but I got to the point in 2 where I nearly gave up..

Hey but everyones different.. But its nothing like MW2. MW2 was set to lower standard than any other CoD and is easy. If you cant do MW2 on Vet dont even try 2+

agreed...COD2 is some where between COD4 and WAW.

agree, done all cod games on vet other then cod 3 found cod 2 by far the hardest and WaW the most anoying both MW easy and too short wanted them to be longer

Grenade spamming P.O.S campaign that is World at War... Haven't even finished it yet on veteran difficulty. The few times I decide to take cover, the A.I. says to itself: "Nope, you can't do that! Here's a few thousand grenades to get your ass moving, oh you died? Oh well, time to start over from last checkpoint."

LOL...thanks for sharing? You're awesome?

Anyways...sure, this game is difficult, no doubt about it. But hardly more difficult than 3 & World at War. The only one I haven't played is the first one on arcade but everyone is different.

People may feel that this could be the hardest of the series. I personally felt that World at War was the hardest (and seem to share that opinion with quite a few others here). Both Modern Warfare games were fairly easy with difficult spots, mainly choke points.

Abuse your smoke grenades if you get stuck and if you get really stuck you could just use the "move up and then move back" technique and let your teammates kill everyone else. While I am almost through my second playthrough on veteran (this is my second tag), I am finding it less and less troubling on veteran as I go through. Hill 300 really wasn't that tough and neither is crossing the Rhine (currently the level I am on).

Good luck regardless!

This game is harder than MW and MW2, but apparently not WAW (I've never played it).

Cod3 is harder. I'd say 7/10.

I have finished twice CoD 2 and 4 on veteran and once MW2 ... i would say that 4 is a bit easier, but not much. With the vids on youtube Mile High Club isn't that hard

I beat this one twice on veteran and I'd have to say this is the easiest CoD I've played on veteran. Beat in 2 days averaging 2 seven hour sessions each day.

I just beat it today and anybody considering doing it. It took me 9 hours but by taking it nice and slow and a bit of luck you can beat it. Any one can do it just got to do it.

I haven't completed it yet but ive made some progress, although I found quite a good walkthrough for it:

It helped me to find good places to cover and when to use smoke etc etc. Hope this helps =D

Hardest game I've ever played in my life, and I've played a LOT of games. The game itself isn't actually difficult, it's just the horrible AI you have to deal with. They aim instantly, throw grenades if they can't shoot you, shoot through smoke, are incredibly unbalanced and take more shots to kill than you do. Think of it as you with 50 health and the enemies with 100. Usually two shots kill you, an instant death.

This game has a fantastic multiplayer element, and I loved playing it back in my PC days, but as a SP campaign I really question what the hell IW were thinking. Games aren't fun when they're this difficult. My controller can testify to that.

Only positive thing I can say about the SP campaign involves the frequency of checkpoints for the harder difficulties. I'm on the last mission at the moment, made it through the entire mission in about 2 or 3 hours but I forgot to press "save and exit", so now I have to start from the beginning again. Another annoying "feature".

This game isn't that hard unless you play on Veteran. The most annoying thing would be the infinite respawns at some specific points during missions on veteran difficulty. And the end of Hill 400. But it's cool and challenging!
