My Call of Duty: World at War review is coming soon... but I thought I'd give my two cents about the game.
There's two very different opinions going on in my head regarding COD5, based on what I've seen other gamers say. First of all, there's an overarching sentiment among reviewers and critics that COD5 is a complete ripoff of Modern Warfare, and really doesn't take the game into any new territory. Industry people are unhappy that two separate developers are making games for the same franchise, and they believe the maker of COD4 is the real innovator and COD5 is a paint-job over the last installment. I understand some of that argument and can agree with much of it.
But the truth of it is that COD5 is a great game. It's entertaining, fun and action packed. The multiplayer gives gamers an opportunity to play new maps and enjoy some different weapon strategies. One area COD4 dropped the ball is that they did not release more DLC for their giant online following. COD5 is prepared to do that, and it starts with a lot more attention given to the multiplayer functionality and options.
So my feeling is two-fold. Yes, COD5 is only a slight upgrade to Modern Warfare, and the WWII setting is played out. But don't be mistaken: COD5 is a great game to play.
