the new cod 5 game in my opinion blows away the first. i love the new co-op campaign and realistic battles. and for all of those people who think that the only guns are the thompson and mp40 you are sadly mistaken

Why spoil a good thing? The fact that the developers used the COD 4 engine was a very smart move. The balance in the controls and visual presentation is near perfect. Now only if they can create a proper cover system and it will be perfect.
Set back in WWII, like COD 4, we get to play as 2 soldiers. This time the US side is in the pacific fighting the Japanese, and the Russians pushing back the Germans. Fighting is constant and requires you to think quick and be on your toes, especially in the USA missions. I must say I loved using the flamethrower! If you played COD 4, then you know how smooth the controls were and how great the graphics looked. Nothing has changed this time around except for location. Solo mode can be finished in an after noon, but the multi-player has been improved on with more depth in the co-op modes. When you beat the game, you get zombie mode; a really fun mode where the object of the game is to survive for as long as possible against hordes of zombies. Practice your head shots because you will need it for that mode. If only all FPSs were this great!

After finishing COD WaW in 1 night id have to say that it is about what i expected. Proficient graphics, good sound, and high production values are there. However, nothing about the game really excited me in the same way that call of duty 4 did. With the exception of a couple of missions it just all felt like an expansion pack to the previous WW2 entries in the franchise. As a side note I felt some of the intro videos to the mission were in fairly bad taste. To use footage of real executions for entertainment value is highly questionable. I'm surprised that there isn't much of an uproar about it. 7/10
