Amazon.co.uk Review

Call of Duty returns, and to many people’s surprise, it’s going back to World War II. While original series creators Infinity Ward brought the series into the modern day, developer Treyarch are setting out to make the definitive historical first-person shooter.
The Soviet attack on Berlin features intense street battles
Take on the Japanese navy as you board a U.S. flying boat
World at War features the most realistic fire effects ever
The new ability to swim adds to both the story and multiplayer modes

The game is primarily set in the Pacific theatre and has a much more realistic, violent tone requiring less-linear game play than previous Call of Duty installments. You'll struggle to survive Japanese attacks without mastering new gaming skills, like swimming or how to use a flamethrower--a weapon that packs some punch in the fully destructable game world.

Also featured is a campaign on the Eastern front, where you take control of a soldier in the Soviet Red Army during the attack on Berlin in the closing stages of the war. The game also includes the series’ first co-op mode, while the competitive multiplayer mode aims to build upon the achievements of Call of Duty 4 and add to the game’s longevity.

Key Features
  • Dual campaigns: Fight in two very different World War II battles. Take on the Japanese Imperial army in the Pacific, and liberate Berlin as part of the Soviet Red Army.
  • Grim realities: Experience the most bloody and realistic combat ever seen in the series, as you witness enemy atrocities and wield horrific new weapons such as the flamethrower.
  • Job with benefits: Revamped competitive multiplayer mode features useable vehicles and an expanded perks system from Call of Duty 4.
  • Brothers in arms: For the first time, a Call of Duty game features a four-player co-operative mode that’s playable online or via a split screen option on the same console.
  • Modern graphics: The game uses an enhanced version of the Call of Duty 4 graphics engine, with wood that splinters realistically when shot and fires that spread organically.
About the Developer: Treyarch
One of publisher Activision’s biggest internal studios, Treyarch have worked on many of the company’s best known titles, from the Spider-Man movie tie-ins and spin-offs to several of the Call of Duty sequels and the new James Bond game, Quantum of Solace.

Manufacturer's Description

Call of Duty: World at War completely changes the rules of engagement by redefining WWII gaming and thrusting players into the final tension-filled, unforgiving battles against a new ferocious enemy in the most dangerous and suspenseful action ever seen in WWII.

Powered by Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare technology, Call of Duty: World at Warbrings an uncensored edge to combat, as soldiers face the most harrowing and climatic European and Pacific battles in which an enemy, who knows no surrender and no retreat, will fight to the last breath, unleashing an arsenal of lethal surprising tactics. Peril and danger lurk throughout the battlefield as players combat the unknown risk of the new chaos of battle.

From the remains of Russia and the ruins of Berlin, to the beach and jungles of the deadly Pacific Theater, the volatile action takes on added depth as players employ new features that previously were only-available in multiplayer, including perks, rankings and online stats in up-to full four-player cooperative gameplay. New infantry and vehicle-based weapons, like the potent flamethrower, bring the battlefield ablaze.

Final Battles: Call of Duty: World at War forces players to survive the final climactic days of a world at war to thwart the advance of Axis powers on multiple fronts from Europe to the Pacific – delivering the hallmark Call of Duty cinematic intensity on a worldwide scale. Play as a U.S. Marine or Russian conscript across a variety of European and Pacific infantry, vehicle and airborne missions. An all new depth of WWII-era combat variety, from the tactics and weapons to the unique and varying locations that traverse the ruins of Western Europe all the way to the harsh, wetlands of Imperial Japan, immerses gamers into an adrenaline-filled, epic struggle.

Co-Op Campaign Mode: "No One Fights Alone" takes on new meaning as players can complete the entire single player campaign with up to four players online or two players via split-screen (both online and offline). Strategizing with others provides gameplay diversity, replayability and engagement. Complete unique co-op challenges to earn rewards and bragging rights.

Addictive Multiplayer: Call of Duty: World at War continues the addictive and leading class-based multiplayer action. The addition of vehicles to the highly-successful Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare multiplayer that already includes persistent experience, player rankings, upgradeable weapons, squad-based gameplay, map scripting, customizable classes and perks, brings a new dimension to Call of Duty online warfare.

4.0 out of 5 stars Limited difficulty & length 27 Feb. 2009
Platform for Display:PlayStation2
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This is probably best regarded as an expansion pack for Call of Duty 3 to cover the end of WW2. The gameplay is very good, but the game is rather easy and/or short. It only took just over a week playing 1-2 hours per night to complete at the regular setting. After switching to the hardest setting it took three nights to complete.

It is all infantry work with a mission driving a tank in the Battle of the Bulge which was rather simple and very short and a short Jeep ride later on. The AI is a bit slow, but if you go forward they will follow. Just try not to shoot them because that is not allowed and you will go back to the last checkpoint.

If you enjoy FPS titles, then this is worth buying, but be aware of the limited game content. Although there is an occasional glitch, the game runs well, even during the intense firefights.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent non-stop action 15 Nov. 2008
By Sam VINE VOICE
Platform for Display:PlayStation2
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Finally it arrives, after a long wait. The first think I thought about when I got this game today is why didn't we have the previous edition on PS2?
Anyways, the game is excellent, it is set in WWII, so it will be a very familiar territory for who ever had the chance to play titles like Medal of Honor, Sniper Elite (environmentally speaking, not game-play), and the previous Call of Duty Titles. Graphically speaking, it looks so good, nothing jaw-dropping though, and it shows how the PS2 is becoming old nowadays. You can hardly notice any difference from other FPS titles in this sense. However, the best thing is gameplay, wow, you start very very easy, in a small tutorial, showing you how to control, move, throw grenades, etc, then hell opens, and it is non-stop action. There is not point where you do not get showered from the enemy, especially with difficulty setting set to high. The flamethrower is fabulous, you can do massive damage with it, and it looks great. The audio is superb as well, it is like actually being there, though sometimes the speech did seem vague, and not as loud as it should be cause of the background noise. Ok, it is a war scene supposedly, but it is still a game, and sometimes you need to pay attention to what others are saying to you. The physics and the way things work around you add a lot to this game, for instance with your flamethrower, you can cause a barrel to explode sending all enemies hiding behind it to the air. It does seem that the missions are a bit short, in a sense that you always want more, i would not mind if this game takes me a year to finish. Weapons seem a lot more realistic as well, and it is not as easy as in some FPS games to just point, shoot, and it is done.

5.0 out of 5 stars GGGGGOOOOOODDDDDDDDDD 12 April 2010
A Kid's Review
Platform for Display:PlayStation2
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
GRAPHICS

The graphics on this game are good but not
brilliant. The guns look realistic and
the terrain has a good graphic look aswell.

GUNS

The guns are very good the best I think is the BAR
gun it is not as fast as the others but way more powerfull.
Some of the guns you get are bolt action some are
pump action and some are automatic. If you are
into one shot one kill guns use the Lee Enfield.
The bestest weapon you can use is definetly the new
flamethrower!

TEAM MATES

The toughest group of soldiers you are in with are probablly
the scottish but the Americans are good to.
My favourite charecter from the American soldiers
is Polonski and the charecter you are private Joe Miller.
Your men in this game actually try hard to hit the
enemy because in games like Medel of Honor you dont even have men.

BUY THIS INSTED OF MEDEL OF HONOR

You should buy this insted of medel of honor because it is better
graphics it is funner your men are good and medel of honor is rubbish
graphics.

4.0 out of 5 stars its gone with a a bang 1 Jan. 2010
Platform for Display:PlayStation2
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
when they announced this was going to be the last call of duty for ps2 i wanted it to go out with a bang and has it.
You start off the game as a new rookie with your sergant voiced by kether sutherland. its based after the ps3 and 360 version at the end of the war hence being called final fronts. Straight away you get really stuck in shots coming left and right and with alot of things goin on it still looks preety good for a ps2 game the new flmathrower even suprised me aswell. the graphics as i said are good for a ps2 game it can lag a bit but not muchat all one thing is though the graphics are worse in the cutscenes than the gameplay. the music is pretty good and the voiceover to. this game had me hooked from start to finish and i would recommened it to any cod fan. the only reason this game is 4 star is lack of this things to do u get campaign and options thats it you can do chapter select but there is no multiplayer at all.call of duty really has gone out a bang with world at war it gets 9/10

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent 21 Jan. 2009
Platform for Display:PlayStation2
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
although this version is more cut down than the ps3 version the in game gameplay is so good that it is not far off the ps3 quality and being a ps2 game that is an awsome achievement. The graphics are top notch and the videos between each mission make you feel as though you are part of the war. The sound effects are great and there are loads of quality weapons to choose from and loads of enemies such as japanese and nazis.
hope this helps.
