A great game, but dosen't beat Call Of Duty 4 0

Last year's Call Of Duty 4: Modern Warfare was a truly excellent game. It had one of the best single player campains ever, and the most addicting first person online part ever.  It even beat Halo 3, who many thought would be the champion of 2007. Of course people always wants more, so a new Call Of Duty game had to be made. Enter Call Of Duty: World At War, the latest chapter in the Call Of Duty series. World At War is developed by Treyarch, who made the well done, but fan negative, Call Of Duty...

A great game despite being very similiar to its predecessor- 0

Call of Duty World at War is Treyarchs second attempt at a Call of Duty Game. After the disaster that was Call of Duty 3, they managed to Build a solid FPS, that overall can seem a bit derivative.  The game uses the same engine as COD4 but is set in the classic Call of Duty World war 2 setting. Due to it using the same engine as Call of Duty 4 it seems very samey to its predecessor  although it is significantly less modern. The game uses multiple main characters similiar to Call of Duty 4, with ...

Call of Duty World at War Review 0

I love World War II. I love playing World War II videogames so naturally I've played many Call of Duty games. I played Finest Hour, Call of Duty 2, Big Red One, Call of Duty 3, Modern Warfare and of course World at War. Ever since I first watched my friend play Call of Duty 2 on a PC, and then play it on my own Xbox 360 (being the first 360 game I owned), I fell in love with the Call of Duty series. My favorite Call of Duty is Modern Warfare, but Call of Duty 2 is an very close second and I had ...

COD as COD is best 0

 There are a lot of things that go into making a successful thanksgiving dinner. Look at each of those things as a component in video-games. Sure, you can have the turkey by itself, but if you served that, people would get bored and laugh you out of town. You need some flavors, surprises, a good formula, some balance, and pretty visual effects to pull the whole thing off as a successful meal. So already you can see the similarities between video-games and thanksgiving din-din. Is it merel...

Not a giant leap, but an incremental step forward for the series 0

 Poor Treyarch – always in the shadow of its allegedly more talented sibling, Infinity Ward. Treyarch’s name is one that has become synonymous with inferiority or slapdash effort. Along with Climax Group (they of Silent Hill: Origins fame) and Ubisoft Shanghai (they of, well, that train wreck), Treyarch seem to have garnered an unfortunate reputation among gamers. Now, I’m not here to argue whether that’s a fair reflection of the company or not, but what I will say is that Call of Duty: World a...

One bullet isn't as good as 30, but it's still fun. 0

Treyarch's contribution to the Call of Duty franchise has been hit-and-miss, but most of the points Treyarch scored were thanks to original developers Infinity Ward. Rather than trying to reinvent, vitalise or alter the direction of the series, Treyarch simply from their predecessor's formula. So when the upcoming Call of Duty: World at War was announced, a lot of COD fans were wondering: will it be worth it? First, you have to ask: did you like Call of Duty 4? If so, then World at War is easil...

Call of Duty: World at War, improving the past 0

Call of Duty 5 goes back to a world at war setting and this is probably one of the best world at war 1st person shooter i have played and that is alot. Campaign:  I played through the campaign on veteran mode and this took forever. Veteran mode was so hard that it was hard to enjoy the campaign. This made the game way more rewarding when you get past a part that you have died on many times but it still gets pretty boring. There is a reasonable hardest difficulty on games but I think ths game is ...

A brutal vision of War 0

  I’m a bit late on this one, ok so I am over a year late. But I think having played World at War after having finishing Modern Warfare 2 gave me a very unique perspective on the game, and its place in the series. World War II is back, I know that a lot of people are sick and tired of games based on the last Great War, it is understandable; as a society we have long been obsessed with the war. Not only games but in virtually every form of media. There is no getting around it; World War II was th...

Call of Duty: World at War, has you once again taking the battlefields of World War 2. This time around you'll be playing the parts of an American Private, and a Soviet Private. While in the body of the American you'll be visiting some of the areas battles were fought when the US went against Japan. When playing as the Soviet you'll be taking on the Germans as you try to expel them from Russia, and then take it all the way back to Germany. This is a multi-platform game, appearing on the 360, PS3...

Nothing screams "paying tribute" like NAZI ZOMBIES 0

Call of Duty : World At War : A World War 2 first person shooter developed by Treyarch, and using the gameplay engine from Infinity Ward’s Call of Duty 4 : Modern Warfare (as well as their boxart design, I guess.) Story : The missions generally fall under two separate, largely unrelated storylines, involving the Americans attacking the Japanese and the Russian invasion of Berlin. Between missions, there are these over-stylized cutscenes that attempt to explain the context of each mission, splici...

A Good Addition to the Call of Duty Family 0

World at War is still the same old Call of Duty but it adds in some new features and fun suprises. As everyone knows World at War returns to World War II where this time we play as the Americans in the Pacific and the Russians in the Western Front. The Campaign is intense, lasts about 5-6 hours, and features many set-pieces that the Call of Duty series is known for.  The multiplayer has the same level-based structure that Call of Duty 4 used, it also has a higher level cap of 65 oppose to CoD 4...

Call of Duty: World at War Review 0

  Call of Duty: World at War (PS3) The previous Call of Duty game by Infinity Ward was a groundbreaking success. It had an epic, action-packed single-player campaign and online multiplayer that was like nothing ever seen before. It had me locked up in my room for hours on end, Pepsi in hand, playing and playing and playing. The light of day was rarely seen. The result of this was the expectations of the next Call of Duty set extremely high. It was Treyarch's turn to develop the next game, but th...

It is almost as good as cod4. 0

The good: The same great multiplayer - One of the best campaigns in any of the call of duty games - Nazi zombies - Splitscreen co-op and online co-op - superb sound - awesome graphics - very good voice acting - Same great gameplay your used to - More blood guts and gore.The bad: some weird glitches and clipping problems - the co-op splitscreen screen is just plain odd.A lot of people were pretty mad when they found out treyarch decided to go back to WWII for the next call of duty game. But i thi...

World At War is nothing particularly new, but it retains many good qualities 0

Call of Duty: World At War returns to WW2 as opposed to it's predecessor, to mostly positive results. World At War presents a darker, grittier tone than past games in the series, as well as including a theater of war never used before in a COD game, and a multiplayer mode that is more of the same, and a new Zombie survival mode.World At War kicks off the campaign with you playing as Pvt. Miller, being held captive in a Japanese camp on the island of Makin Atoll, where him and his teammates have ...

A frustrating experience 0

Call of Duty: World at War fails miserably to standout from other games in the genre. I was absolutely floored by some of the set pieces in the game and it may very well be the best war game ever presented. The game also features the most enjoyable flamethrower I've seen. However, these parts lose much of their value in the context of this game.World at war is considerate enough to have every problem that this series has ever had. The AI of your teammates is terrible and they are there for almos...

 I could start out like everyone else telling you how wonderful this game is or I could be truthful and tell you everything WRONG with the game. First of all this was the flash of the year, but with no fallowing boom? The previous Call of Duty installment by Infinity Ward Call of Duty: Modern Warfare was original, few glitches, amazing campaign and a multiplayer that blew you away. (literally :P).

Duty Fulfilled 0

Call of Duty: World at War (COD5) is a harrowing, violent trip through some of the most historic settings in World War II. Unmatched by other WWII games, but in the shadow of its predecessor, COD5 delivers a stunning experience, although very similar to COD4.The solo mission has plenty of settings, environments and battlefields to offer. You play as two separate characters - one set in the Pacific fighting the Japanese forces leading to the battle at Okinawa, and the other in the Russian Red arm...

Hit and miss.........with blood flying everywhere.......... 0

I own every call of duty so naturally i got this game for christmas and its great but lets just say if you don't like world war 2 you won't like this and also the game play is near identical to cod4. First off the singleplayer is longer and more bloody than cod4, alot more bloody. The multiplayer is more or less the same with more perks, a larger variety of weapons, tanks and new modes that are probably the stand out features. Whoever said the graphics are worse than cod4 has their head on bac...

Call of Duty: World at War Review 0

Call of Duty: World at War is a fine addition to the Call of Duty franchise.  It is undoubtably the coup de grace of any WWII-themed first person shooters.  Treyarch, still riding on the back of the giant that is Infinity Ward, stole all the bits that made Call of Duty: Modern Warfare so great and improved upon or added to that seminal game.  However, it should be noted that COD: MW still feels "smoother" and more balanced than WaW, but only by a little bit.  I'm a big FPS player.  It is my go-t...

It's a good game but nothing groundbreaking 0

Treyarch have been slated from day one when they took hold of the next Call of Duty and brought it from Modern Warfare back in World War 2. However this time around they have built upon what Infinity Ward did with Call of Duty 4 and added a few of their own touches.When I got World at War the first thing I headed to was its single player as Call for Duty 4's was one of the best single players from last year. From the start it put you in the position of a gruesome touchier and from there it built...

A good game that unfortunately tries too hard to be CoD 4 0

Call of Duty: World at War is the follow-up to 2007's mega-hit Call of Duty 4, although it is actually more in line with Call of Duty 1-3, as it returns us to World War II. When first announced, this move was met with much skepticism. People were also afraid that the game was not being developed by the studio behind Call of Duty, Call of Duty 2, and the brilliant Call of duty 4; Infinity Ward. It would instead be developed by Treyarch, developer of the expansions for the original CoD and of the ...

Call of Duty: World at War 0

       One word that defines this game is undoubtedly "epic".  Call of Duty seems to have the knack of completely immersing you into the battlefield, making you feel as if you are literally one among the ranks of fighting infantry amid the gunfire of  World War II.         A monumental addition to World at War is the co-op mode.  The campaign is as action-packed and intense as ever, thus playing it with up to four other players is amazingly entertaining.  The audio/visual presentation is simply ...

Cod: WaW - Great game, wrong genre? 0

On October 10th, 2008 the multiplayer beta for the much anticipated Call Of Duty: WaW. It was instantly dismissed by many as another WWII generic FPS. While I feel this assumption is wrong let us see what Cod: WaW has to offer this terribly crowded and tired out genre. Well for starters the single player campaign is set in Japan and Russia, two relatively new and unused scenarios.  As mentioned before the story takes place in WWII and the story is entirely fictional, but during real events.  Fro...

It was released on November 11th 2008.Like every other game in the COD series (expect COD 4) COD WAW takes place during World War II, it focuses on the lives of two different soldiers fighting the war on different sides of the world.

Generic execution drags down an otherwise great shooter. 0

The newest Call of Duty game has a lot to offer to shooter fans. The single player campaign, which is purported to last around 6-7 hours, never lets up on the intensity, and the multiplayer package is one of the most well rounded and well executed in any shooter. The graphics and sound do not disappoint, the controls are well mapped and will be instantly familiar to anyone who has played a CoD game, and the weapons feel good. However, no amount of praise that I can (and will) lay on the game cou...

Back in November 2007, Infinity Ward and Activision released Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. This game was purley fantastic in many ways. Also, It moved from the ol' World War II to the future. Now, a year has passed and Call of Duty: World at War was released. People higly anticipated this game since it moved back to the WWII theme and the array of weapons. But, this game is more deeper and more darker than the previous CoD games.Gameplay:Using the award winning Call of Duty 4 engine, Call of D...

Mac and Cheese for the FPS genre 0

Call of Duty: World at War Review Call of duty World at War, finds itself in an interesting position.  This is the game that immediately follows the critically acclaimed and multiplatinum selling Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. World at War also makes the critically unpopular decision by going back to the World War II era.  All of these things present themselves as huge mountains to climb for the Treyarch team, so is our trip back to WWII a sweet one or another bleak spot in the genre?

Personal Thoughts: when I got it I expected the multiplayer and story to be as exciting as Call of Duty 4.  The majority of the story was not as intense as COD4, but the ending was more intense than all of COD4's story put together.  The multiplayer was a huge disappointment, it wasn't as exciting, the guns weren't as great as the modern guns, and the ranking system wasn't as addicting and exciting as COD4's.The Good:The intensity of the end of the story was awesome You got to kill Nazis The gun...

When it comes to many game franchises I've played, such as ones I'm casually a fan of like Resident Evil, to ones I follow the story mythos heavily like Half-Life, there is one other franchise that I've been a fan of since the first game, and that's the Call of Duty franchise. I got into it way back when in 2004, when Call of Duty 2 was still in development. I recieved the Deluxe Edition Box Set as a Christmas gift, which featured the original Call of Duty and its expansion, United Offensive. I...

A Review of the Single Player Experience 0

Call of Duty: World at War thrusts players back into the familiar setting of WWII, although shifts some of the action from the familiar European theatre over to the Pacific. World at War has received some undeserved criticism right off the bat, simply because of its more successful older cousin.While it might be easy to write off World at War simply as another World War II game, it should be judged on its own merits and, as a first person shooter, it is fantastic. Treyarch has done a good job of...

THIS IS 2 KEEP U BUST WHILE THEY MAK COD5:MW2 THIS IS NOT THE REAL PART 5   After a wildly successful tour of duty in the modern era, Activision's Call of Duty series heads back to the 1940s with World at War, a WWII-focused shooter that attempts to do many of the same things that the previous game did, but in a different time period.

NOTE: This review is only for the single player portion of Call of Duty World at War, and is scored accordingly. Please take that into account when reading this piece. Thank you. The Call of Duty franchise has been a staple of the first person shooter genre this decade, starting out life as a PC exclusive before entering the console wars for the second iteration. With four numbered games and a half dozen spin-offs behind it, Call of Duty returns with World at War. The same formula that has been ...

Yes, its true ladies and gentlemen - Call of Duty: World at War is a lot like Modern Warfare. Too much like modern warfare. And lets get that outta the way first, because otherwise - World at War is a great game. The campaign, which has no training level, is divided into 2 main acts. On one side you are an American fighting the Japanease, on the other - a Russian fighting the Nazis. The campaign is short, but it's very good while it lasts. Although, not as good as last year's.

Call of Duty: World at War 0

It's interesting to play World at War right after Far Cry 2, because they represent very different approaches to the same basic idea. The latter is all about providing you with an environment in which any number of things can happen based on what you do inside it, while the former is a series of planned events hand crafted to give every player the same experience. This is Treyarch's third stab at the Call of Duty franchise, and if the first two are like this, then they've proven themselves very ...

Sick of It 0

 After the massive success that was Modern Warfare, Treyarch takes the reigns of the Call of Duty franchise --- I believe for the final time --- and they bring us back to the glory days of World War II. And since there isn't really a heck of a lot left to do games about, this is, basically, the end of the war. You play as Russian and American troops who are seeking to both take down Berlin AND Okinawa.Now, for many, the return to WW II is a bit of a letdown, but a well-made game is good n...

I have always kept a special place in my heart for the Call of Duty franchise. I love how the games mix cinematic elements with intense action and just pure fun. World at War is no different. It has those cinematic elements that draw you in to the story, it has the intense action that keeps your heart pumping, and all in all its just fun to play. But after so many WWII games its getting old fast. Modern Warfare really threw in a fresh new creative idea for the CoD franchise and I feel as though ...
