Call of Duty: World at War

Post by JayProBii on Thu Oct 15, 2009 1:32 pm

-Story-
Call of Duty: World at War has returned the battlefield back to World War II after the success of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. The game confronts the untold stories of the Pacific and the European battlefields in the final days of WWII. The player takes the first person view of Pvt. Miller of the Marine Raiders and Pvt. Dimitri Petrenko, a member of the red army. The story follows Pvt. Miller who is assaulting a Japanese airfield base on Peleliu island. After the capture of the 'rock', the team, and the rest of the army ship to Okinawa to unleash the final blow on the Imperial army.

The story is different for Pvt. Dimitri Petrenko. The story begins with the violent massacre of all his comrades in Stalingrad, all except for one. Sgt. Reznov survives and they proceed to assassinate General Amsel, a figure of the Nazi party. The Red Army gets back on its feet and assault Germany and eventually breach the walls of Berlin where they advance towards the Reichstag to end the bloodshed and bring peace to the world.

-Gameplay-
The first thing you will notice the new four person Co-op Campaign Mode, which allows four players to fight it out in a competitive match in a campaign mission. Another addition that is easy to notice are vehicles. These are of course the tanks. They are well balanced in single player but in multiplayer it becomes a chore running away from them or destroying them. A new stock of weaponry has also been added which includes the all mighty FLAMETHROWER! Now you don't even have to aim for the target, just simply spray and pray, it's a terrific addition to your amazing arsenal.

In-game, there is more blood and gore compared to Modern Warfare. It shows the true story of war and there will be limbs flying off and blood spurting from wounds. This game takes you into the ugly side of WWII.

There is also a new mode added alongside the co-op mode that is available after the campaign. It is of course, Nazi Zombies. You and three other team mates are trapped in a run down timber house defending yourself from Nazis that are back from the dead. The aim of the game is to simply survive for as long as possible and to keep your team mates alive too. Weapons and items are available from within the house to stop the invasion.

-Graphics-
The graphics are sensational and seem picture perfect. The cut-scenes are well scripted and show the warplan of your commanding officers in a detailed manner. The only problem with these 'between mission cut-scenes' are the real life footage of executions, bombings and bodies.

-Sound-
The voices of war are amazing! Gary Oldman (Reznov) and Kiefer Sutherland (Roebuck) lent their voice acting talents to the game and are worthy of praise in this review. They are back up by outstanding gunshots, explosions and enemy chatter that are spread through out the game.

-Final Comments and Ratings-
Call of Duty: World at War loses some of its shine because of its Modern Warfare feeling but it is a great game overall. If you are a fan of the Call of Duty series or simply a fan of action or first person shooter games, this one is definitely for you.

8.5/10

I'm sure you can have more than one review... They're player made reviews anyway.
