Jez plays… Call of Duty: Finest Hour

Call of Duty: Finest Hour is a first-person shooter video game developed by Spark Unlimited and published by Activision for GameCube, PlayStation 2 and Xbox. It is the first console installment of Call of Duty.

Although it is based on the original Call of Duty for Microsoft Windows, it has a different storyline and acts as a side-story/expansion of the main game. It features six intertwined stories and battles based on real events from the perspective of soldiers on each side of the allied campaign (U.S., British, and Soviet).

The game’s music was composed by Michael Giacchino, who previously worked on the original Call of Duty and the Medal of Honor franchise. AC/DC singer Brian Johnson provides the voice of Sergeant Starkey, one of the British commandos.

I began the campaign on July 29th, 2020 and began progressing through the Soviet missions.

The second play of the game came on September 2nd where the Soviet missions were completed, painfully, before progressing into the English missions:

I finally returned to Finest Hour on January 20th, 2021 and it was not my personal Finest Hour. This game really needed more checkpoints in certain places…

Following this stream, I terminated my playthrough.
