Dana Olson at Tawkn awarded Call of Duty Classic a silver trophy. Here is an excerpt from his review:
"It's the same game we all played years ago, and it mostly holds up. For me personally, it serves as a piece of history, and I marvel at how far we've come in just a few short years. It helps me appreciate all of the advances made, especially by Infinity Ward, since this one that launched them to legendary status. I have a lot of gripes with the game, but don't let that deter you from dropping your cash if you want to re-live the experience or just can't get enough Call of Duty."
