Another great installment of the Call of Duty franchise, World at War take the time frame back to WWII. Now, they have included some weapons that had not seen the light of day in the other games, with the FLAMETHROWER being highlighted. The campaign mode wasn't anything to be astonished by, and is rather short, but it has its strengths, such as getting you prepared for the awesome multiplayer mode! This game carries over the perks from CoD4, but has made some signifigant changes to custom weapon loadouts. Now, instead of all the weapon types having the same additions; M203, silencer, red dot, ACOG, etc. But now, almost every weapon has a personal different peripheral set, with the exclusion of the bolt-action rifles, which I think make you a better sniper overall, since a semi-auto snipers of CoD4 were commonly used by noobs, but now they have to work to a higher level to get a semi-auto sniper. As usual, there are two different shotguns to be unlocked; the Trenchgun and the classic double-barrel. And now, for the people stuck offline, if you beat the campaign, you unlock Zombies, the funnest minigame of all time. I personally spent countless hours playing the FIRST map, and as I am writing this, there are three new ones out, each introducing new weapons and abilities. This game is almost perfect, except for the weak storyline, which permits me from giving a ten. Do a better job on the story in CoD6 guys!
This was the first time I played a COD title. I have to say I was impressed.
The visuals are stunning.
The story mode is cool.
I like the trophy goals.
It realy was a fun game. Unfortunaly, I bought this game to replace my PC multiplayer. Well, the multiplayer on here is a little weird. So many people seem to like it, and maybe im just not use to consol multiplayers, but I just didnt like it.
The random spawning is what really killed me. I read that this was suppose to stop people from being spawn camped, but i constantly found myself being spawned right in front of the enemy. And because I wasnt anygood, BOOM... DEAD.
I might not have been to good at this game, but on some PC games I am use to getting 25 kill sprees, and scores like 100+ kills / 25 deaths a round. Well, when I looked at some of the top shots I played with. It seemed that they werent doing all that great either. It was almost always 2 to 3 kill then a death. How is that fun?
I think alot of it had to do with the way people were spawning. It just seemed like alot of kamikazes running in the frey and stealing a kill just to end up dead one second later. There was no teamwork, tactics, or planning involved.
There also seemed to be a ton of nade spamming. which alot of people were complaining about.
I was looking for a good multiplayer, but got a great campaign.
I cant rate it down just because I wasn't able to keep up with the multiplayer, so I give it a 9.
I admit the main reason i bought this game was to kill the Zombies with friends. I figured it was a gimick to buy the game but was surprisingly wrong.
I would of probably gave the game a 9 if it was longer, i beat it in more/less an evening. For that reason i would suggest renting it if you are not concerned about the minigame or if you can get a cheaper used copy.
