i would rate this game as a 10 but i do not really like the WWII setting. Modern guns are just so much more fun than old guns. The story is not as interesting as Call of Duty 4's and the AI is kind of non responsive sometimes and that is actually the first time i have ever noticed it. I know people have said it for other games but I never really knew what they meant. Now I know. Now these minor things do not stop this game at all! This game is incredibly fun! Finally the addition of split screen! The missions are intense and adrenalin rushing! The multiplayer is exactly like COD4 which is a great thing! COD4 multiplayer is the best I have ever played and this is the same! This is a must buy game! A well earned 9 out of 10!
call of duty world at war is a great game, but it has its flaws. the game looks good and plays well but they said they used the same engine as COD4, but it still feels more like COD3. for fans of the series you will be satisfied. on the good side the game runs well, looks good, the online is what you would expect with some new twists (vehicles) (65 levels instead of 50 to prestige). on the bad, the story leaves something to be disired, the enemy AI is fricken brain dead(you can run up and knife like 10 people before they shoot at you, and for those of you who want to play the co-op campaign with a friend on the same system instead of online, first off instead of doing the normal 50/50 split, they do a stupid 40/40 split with 20% of the screen having a background, this makes it VERY HARD TO SEE ANYTHING and you will find yourself shooting your comrads instead of the enemy. all in all a good online game but the single player campaign leaves something more to be disired. i say rent it first and don't waste your money
