"Here we go again... COD5"
4 stars"

COD5 as its called sometimes, or Call of Duty: World at War is at the apex of Activision's ti­tles. For the first time I don't think I've finally played a game where Jungle combat seemed so real and intense. From Firefights in the South Pacific Islands to Riding (shotgun) on a T34 to Berlin, this title really has made the grade. Story, graphics and the action all complete the game well. Unfortunately I've a bit of fair warning, unless you'r machine is what the Fadists are now calling ‘next gen(eration) gaming platforms/consoles then your not going to enjoy the full quality and work behind this game. Even my Laptop (Dell1520 – last model I believe has a NVidia graphics card with discreate memory) struggled at times and I had to 'crank it’ down in terms of graphics.

Its a solid play that won't disappoint.

PS – like all graphic intensive games, check and load all the patches BEFORE you play to ensure you get the very best ;)

"Great Game"
5 stars"

This is one of my all-time favorite games. If I had to describe this game in a word, that word would be “Intense”. Treyarch did an amazing job with this game. The maps are large and very detailed, with an atmosphere that really draws the player into the game. Call Of Duty World At War has a very good single player story, and you can play the entire game co-op with your mates. It also has several multiplayer modes including, Free-For-All, Team Deathmatch, Capture The Flag, Domination, Search And Destroy, War, Headquaters, and Sabatoge. Plus another little co-op bonus known as Nazi Zombie. And who doesn't like the zombie mode?

I only hope the Treyarch can top themselves as I am patiently awaiting Call Of Duty: Black Ops.

I know that the WWII thing has been done over again in the FPS genre, but the bottom line is this is a must have title.

Description

Utilizing the Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare engine, Call of Duty: World at War throws out the rulebook of war to transform WWII combat through a new enemy, new tactics and an uncensored experience of the climatic battles that gripped a generation. As U.S. Marines and Russian soldiers, players will employ new features like cooperative gameplay, and weapons such as the flamethrower in the most chaotic and cinematically intense experience to date.

Call of Duty: World at War introduces co-operative play, bringing fresh meaning to the “No One Fights Alone” mantra with up to four-players online for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC, or two-player local split-screen on consoles. Nintendo Wii will also support a unique co-op mode for two players. For the first time ever players will experience harrowing single-player missions together for greater camaraderie and tactical execution. The co-op campaign allows players to rank up and unlock perks in competitive multiplayer by completing challenges and earning experience points, adding continuous re-playability and team-based gameplay. Whether playing competitively or cooperatively - if players are online with Call of Duty: World at War - they will always gain experience points. Based on a player’s experience rank and rank of the player’s friends, Call of Duty: World at War will scale dynamically to provide a deeper level of challenge.

Building on the Call of Duty 4 engine, Call of Duty: World at War thrusts players into the ruthless and gritty chaos of WWII combat like never been before, and challenges them to band together to survive the most harrowing and climactic battles of WWII that led to the demise of the Axis powers on the European and South Pacific fronts. The title re-defines WWII games by offering an uncensored experience with unique enemies and combat variety, including Kamikaze fighters, ambush attacks, Banzai charges and cunning cover tactics, as well as explosive on-screen action through all new cooperative gameplay.

Features:
  • Call of Duty 4 Technology - Built using the Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare engine, Call of Duty: World at War utilizes a bedrock of technology that delivers jaw-dropping visuals, while empowering players to employ elements like fire to affect the dynamics of the battlefield. Players that attempt to harness the power of new weapons, like the flamethrower, will find themselves capable of burning away environmental elements that give cover to a camouflaged enemy, leaving a charred battlefield - and their foes - in their wake.
  • Coordinated Assault and Support - For the first time in the franchise, Call of Duty: World at War introduces co-op, bringing fresh meaning to the “No One Fights Alone” mantra. Call of Duty: World at War co-op features up to four-players online, or two-player local split-screen, allowing gamers to experience harrowing single-player missions together for greater camaraderie and tactical execution. The title also incorporates traditional multiplayer components such as challenges, rankings and online stats into the co-op campaign for deeper re-playability and advanced gameplay..
  • New Theaters of Operation - Players fight as U.S. Marines and Russian soldiers facing enemies - some new to the Call of Duty franchise - that employ lethal new tactics and know no fear, no mercy, nor the rules of war. Epic conflicts are fought on multiple fronts, playing through the climactic battles of WWII in the grittiest, most chaotic and cinematically intense experience to date.
  • Innovative Multiplayer - Multiplayer builds from the success of Call of Duty delivering a persistent online experience for more squad based interaction. New development with party systems allows an intimacy with squad based combat never before seen in Call of Duty. Combined infantry and vehicle missions add a new dimension to the online warfare and offers more PERK abilities.
  • Cinematic Quality Graphics and Sound - Treyarch’s award-winning sound department returns with effects that add to the already immersive cinematic intensity of the Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare game engine.
