Only one year ago we were talking about COD4 and Infinity Ward and now we have yet another Call of Duty title on our hands, but make sure you don't call it COD5. The latest installment of the series comes from Treyarch whom delivered the lack lustered Call of Duty 3 a few years back. After Infinity Ward made the jump to modern warfare, our friends at Treyarch decided that it was best for their game to head back to the World War II era once again."

Overall: Call of Duty World at War returns us to the WW11 setting that some may consider to be overdone. However, this take of WW11 may be the best ever! The game itself is a marvel as was COD4 in all aspects of game creating. The graphics, the sound, the multiplayer, and the single player campaign are all stellar. It is successful despite the overpopulated FPS genre and it furthers the concept that in order for a game to be great it should have a multiplayer component. COD WaW instantly becomes a XBOX 360 must have.
Gameplay: If you've played COD4 then you've basically played this game. The single player is packed with intensity with an excellent surprise at the end otf the game. Yet the meat and potatoes of this game is in the multiplayer. The maps are excellent, the gameplay magnificient, and although the weapons are aged they function well and serve the purpose of killing your enemy efficiently. The best part of multiplayer is releasing the hounds after seven kills in a row! It is hilariously to watch as your enemy either runs, are is mauled by the relentless German shepherds. I don't think there is a better moment in all of FPS gaming. Of course, it's not so great when the hounds after your @!%#*!!
Graphics: The game is as nice to watch as COD4 and in a lot of repsects a bit more detailed. The maps especially are filled with nooks and crannies and well defined areas wher one kind easily go and set up head poppin shop. Add in the 1080p resolution and you get the visual sense that you are at war so it would be best to take cover ASAP!
Sound: The audio is also very well done. Imagine if you will you're camping in a sniper spot and you first hear the sound of a bullet shooting past your head. You stand up and start looking around panicked because you have been found. So you remember it's best to lay down. Then you hear the siren. That God awful sound of impending doom. Now you get down from your perch and start to run! As you try and find somewhere else to set up, you hear something off in the distance. It sounds like dogs? Then you hear the enemy announce, "let the dogs tear the flesh from our enemies!" Panic has set in and before you know it you hear the sickening sounds of someone being eaten, you look down and God help you, it's you! That's what the sound does in this game, it makes you appreciate the war and puts you in the center of the action.
Suggestions: The only suggestion I have is more maps. Keep making more maps. Everything else about the game is outstanding. However, after a time the maps become old and subsequently the game becomes old. The Ugly Truth: I easily put this game in the top ten XBOX 360 games of all times.

Overall: Over the years the Call of Duty series has pulled in a great deal of money on their famous WWII games as well as the trend-breaking blockbuster hit Call of Duty 4 Modern Warfare. In Call of Duty World at War the creators go back to WWII in efforts to show the people about the battles and bravery of soldiers no one knew or cared about as well as famous battles such as Makin and Berlin. Like past Call of Duty games you play split characters one being Private Miller of the Marine Raiders and the other being Private Petrenko of the Red Army where you go on and fight battles to win the war. Another thing this game has added was the gore. They added effects such as legs being blown off from bouncing betties or a shotgun. Another nice and fun feature is the flamethrower which dispose of enemies quickly with screams that make you feel fuzzy inside. Overall if your looking for a completley new game with completley new stuff I appologize because I have to dissapoint you. Overall this game is pretty much a replica of Call of Duty 4 Modern Warfare except in WWII, a new storyline, new weapons, and tanks, a russian Gary Oldman, and of cource the zombies. In Modern Warfare at the end of the game you are granted the airplane mission, in World at War you get a Nazi Zombie survival mode which is freaky and fun and can be played over and over for a long time. Claymores are now Bounching betties, Grenade launcher (has been moved to last upgrade for a rifle [Thankfully]) is still a grenade launcher, online is the same as the old online. Although if you continue to move up the Call of Duty series this will be a great game to go online for because online is still intact and the new maps add some new experiences and stradagies for all players. I have been a fan since Modern Warfare and overall I like this game its fun to play, challenging on veteren and online, and great when your playing co-op on Nazi Zombies.
Gameplay: Overall theres nothing special about the gameplay if you have played Modern Warfare. Its pretty much like playing Call of Duty Modern Warfare again with different skins, areas, levels, guns, and Kiefer Sutherland telling you what to do. Although many people including myself really loved Modern Warfare so we have no problem playing World at War. Basically gameplay is exactly the same shoot, throw grenades, aim, die, repeat. The process is a lot more fun that it sounds. Recommendations are to people who liked the Call of Duty Modern Warfare and every FPS fan. 60% of the people who say Halo 3 is better have never played it (I was one).
Graphics: From a visual standpoint this game's graphics aren't top-notch, but they are still really nice. They added some real world effects such as gr@!%#*! being burned, people being burned, tanks with flamethrowers. They also added gore and more blood which makes shooting people in the legs with a shotgun so much less shameful than it really is. Overall its graphics are good and are up top, but if your expecting Fallout 3 or Gears of War graphics this isn't what you think.
Sound: The audio of the game is still nice like it was back in Call of Duty Modern Warfare. The guns sound like an actual gun, the grenades sound like grenades, the people screaming sounds like screaming. They also added nice features like Artillery strikes giving off the screeching sound and also the sounds that the characters make. If you kill someone online you may taunt them, or when your reloading you actually sound desperate which adds a nice realism effect. But to top all that off your Marine Raider general is Kiefer Sutherland and your Russian General is Gary Oldman. It can't get better than that.
Suggestions: In my mind I think the developers are in the right direction on advancing this game towards perfection they listened to complaints about things like grenade launchers and fixed it. Suggestions: I suggest that they work on adding some mindblowing features to the game so it doesn't seem like Call of Duty 4 with new skins. My only other suggestion would be to go back to modern warfare which created a giant success for them, but they are already planning Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 which I eagerly await to play.
