Call of Duty: World at War
Lower your expectations...
Like most of the gamer-public out there, I couldn't wait to get my hands on the new COD:WAW. I was never a huge fan of the COD series until COD4 was released. The games were okay, but COD4 blew me away just like it did for a majority of shooter-fans out there. With that being said, we can now move on to WAW. Cons - Graphics: This game fell very short on graphics. I was hoping to be impressed with the next-generation of graphics. Much to my chagrin, I was let down. WAW has better graphic 'detail' than COD4, but WAW appears very 'cartoonish.' The damage done to players with explosives is very graphic (not for the kids), but it's closer to an 'Itchy-and-Scratchy' cartoon from the Simpsons than to real life. However, the graphic nature of death-dealing shouldn't be experienced by a younger crowd anyway. (The F-bomb is frequently dropped by other gamers with headsets as well as characters on the game.) Overall, I was disappointed with the direction the artists took concerning their attention to detail. The animated-look really distracts from the fact that you're supposed to be immersed in WW2. Cons - Story and Offline experience: The game is just as linear as before, and I don' t understand why every shooter has to be this way. It must be difficult to program differently, so the linearity is 'par for the course.' The AI foes are just as stupid as before, which is why this game should be purchased for online use only. If you don't have an internet connection, don't you dare buy this game for $** just to play the story. You have too many other games out there that you can get for less, and will experience much more for your dollar. Cons - Online connection: This game appears to dump you more often than COD4. I made no adjustments to my wireless router, so I should see no difference between the two titles. This is not the case, and I hope that in one of the next PS3 updates, this problem is addressed. Also, the game loads a bit slower than COD4. I thought this was only me, but I can hear other players complain through my speakers as we all wait for each level to load. At least I know I'm not crazy! Cons - Weapon realism: If you put a silencer on your weapon, your range is/should be reduced. However, I've noticed that half-dead players laying far away can hit me with their pistol while in 'last stand' mode, but my silenced rifle can not reach them. Apparently, this was an oversight on the programmers and should be fixed for the next COD title. If anybody has every handled a pistol, then you realize exactly how difficult it is to shoot at 20 yards, let alone take someone out from halfway across the level. Pros - Level size and scope: Check the size of any level on COD4 and multiply it by at least 2. That's how big the levels are on WAW. Level-size and scope on COD4 was my only real complaint. WAW is much more realistic per game level than any other COD we've experienced, as far as feel is concerned. The elevation changes, destroyed buildings, and beaches are refreshing, and much more difficult to master than previous titles. Campers and Snipers have a much more difficult time. While they can see for a healthy distance, the levels are so large that they may only have a few shots to take during each round. This makes playing as a Sniper much more realistic, and doesn't annoy the rest of the players like COD4 was infamous for. Pros - Camo appearance: In COD4, camo really didn't seem to help. It felt more like some Barbie game where you got to dress your character, but it didn't really serve a function. However, in WAW, camo can really help. There are a few levels loaded with jungle foliage, and you can't see your enemy until you are right on top of him. Sometimes, you have to fire your weapon at the blur just to see if someone is actually there. This is how camo should be used, and the WAW creators did a good job. Overall: If you like online gaming, then this game is a nice extension of COD4. However, the retail price is not worth the $*
Best COD game ever played for PS3
Nice graphics, great sound effects and the most of all is the gameplay. The greatest thing about it is the 4 co-op campaign mode, where you can have friends jump into battle with you and fight together with other computerized soldiers in the game.
Best WW2, best FPS, best Call of duty game ever!!!
i have never played a better fps, i hate to say it being a huge battlefield fan, but this blows it away, screw the wii, no zombies or gore??? whats the point?? ps3 baby, and world at war, i hate Call of duty, i love WW2. i figured why not, it is amazing, i was wrong about COD, this game is amazing, i highly recommend it, though not for children, it is highly graphic in blood and gore, limbs get blown off, heads get blown off, its really awesome, super gorey
one of my favorites
this is one of my 3 favorite cods including black ops and black ops 2 a very well designed cod . i recommend it
This is by far the best COD made. It had an awesome story and the online was great. The best part about the online was it was fair! The killstreaks weren't super amazing and bullets actually kill people on this one unlike the newer ones. The only downside is that it is virtually impossible to play now online because of the hackers. Way to go guys. You ruined the game for the rest of us.
This game is fun if youre going for the original zombies OR the campaign dont waste your time on the multiplayer. Modders and hackers infest it making the game almost unplayable
I Bought The Whole Cod Series And By Far Waw & Cod4 Are Outstanding. Seems To Me That The Future Has Not Been Good To The Cod Series.While Playing This Game You Dont Notice How Much Time Has Went By Its That Much Fun If Your Doing Bad In Multiplayer Go To The ZOMBIES Game Mode
Last good COD
This is the last good COD game that came out, the series has gone down hill ever since MW and BO came out, those games ruined the series, the game used to be awesome before it got Pop and mainstream, don't spend your money on the newer COD games, get the older ones.
a classic must have
this is the best call of duty in all selections, campain, muliplayer and weapons. The game was fun a couple years ago and still is.
Awesome World War II game!!!!!!!
This game is amazing! The multiplayer is by far the best multiplayer I've ever played. Single-player story mode is really cool. I'm glad it has a co-op campaign! The zombie mode is probably better than the BO1 and B02 zombies! The awesome thing about multiplayer is that you can get in tanks and use a big .50 cal while one person is driving it or you can drive it while the other person is on the .50 cal! Overall this game is prob the best COD!!! Get this game!!!!!!
