Call of Duty Preview

Freed from the tyranny of insider-only status, the Call of Duty preview on PC.IGN.Com (thanks Frans) offers their first-hand impressions of the upcoming World War II shooter being created by the 2015 alumni at Infinity Ward. They offer some detailed impressions about the goings-on, focusing a bit on the capabilities of the modified Wolfenstein engine (itself a tweaked version of the Quake III engine), and offering an account of some impressive warfare:
At one point in time there were literally some 300 Russian soldiers on the beach, all running in different paths, some dying, some hurdling through the air from explosions, some cowering, others bravely and futilely returning fire... It was insanity! And, it was just the way it's supposed to be. Really, above any other wartime first-person shooter yet seen, Call of Duty seems to be very accurately and very deliberately attempting to recreate the intense and chaotic feel of combat by throwing delivering the sheer scope and horror of it all (sans gore).

I don't understand why the writer had to repeatedly reference other FPS titles for comparison to CoD. Does he expect the every IGN reader to be a well-read gamer (Like you and me)?

I dunno, it just got annoying.
