I am a huge fan of war games and have bought, played and completed several times most titles that have been released in the lifetime of the Xbox360. I have recently been playing COD Ghosts, Black Ops II etc and was getting a little tired of all the hum-drum remote drone strikes and taking control of remote controlled guns, dogs, sheep, geese or whatever other turd the developers want to throw in of late. I was thirsty for some WWII action and decided to pick up another copy of WAW after trading my first copy some time ago. I'm really glad I did.
The graphics still fair very well in current times and the sound is simply awesome, especially when your tv/speakers are turned up loud. The gameplay must rate as one of the most intense gaming experiences of modern times. The sheer volume of enemies, the way they run at you with bayonets ready and scream their deathly wishes at you is nothing short of fantastic. This is a proper war game where the action never lets up. The game feels very open and free compared to the on-rails style that seems to have plagued many modern releases and it grips you by the collar and pulls you in until you've defeated every last enemy soldier. Guns, grenades, tanks and an aeroplane section are all included, all of which are executed in style and leave the current COD titles kicking in the shadows. No silly remote controlled nonsense, just you, your gun and your enemy. BANZI!
A game worthy of any collection. This is at the top of its genre. Get it now, you will not be disappointed.
