Call of Duty: World at War (Xbox 360)
- 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.
- 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). Strategising with others provides gameplay diversity, replayability and engagement.
- 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, customisable classes and perks, brings a new dimension to Call of Duty online warfare.

Powered by Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare technology, Call of Duty: World at War brings 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 co-operative gameplay. New infantry and vehicle-based weapons, like the potent flamethrower, bring the battlefield ablaze.
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.
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. See all Product description

Firstly, it's a world war two FPS so don't be disappointed when you don't get ultra-modern blasters and hover tanks. You get bolt action rifles, sub-machine guns that kick the aim all over the place, and you spend a lot of time running like hell from grenades. It is excellent in it's close to realistic old school physics. Great sound effects and visuals, just do yourself a favour and don't try to stick to all the advice shouted by your colleagues. Most of it is for effect and you'll end up running into trouble rather than winning.
Next, the player levels. Deffo start on 'recruit difficulty', and even then you'll have a tough as nails time. The levels are DAMNED hard, and die you will... REPEATEDLY! Keep an eye out for the grenade indicator and when it pops up starting sprinting. Don't waste your time trying to throw them back, you'll have to find it first and that means blowing your own arm off.
The levels themselves are visually good. Once you get over the initial common-place FPS issue of walking through light undergrowth like it is mist you quickly attune to spotting bad guys at range, and the aiming physics are really good too. If you sight up on a machine gun nest at incredible distance you stand a chance of taking out the gunner, unlike some games where you can pop off shots all week but hit nothing unless you are on top of it.
As far as WW2 sims go this is a good one. Okay, it gets a bit same old-same old once you've been running, ducking and blasting for 3 or 4 levels, but the authenticity involved is better than 90% of the competition. The solo campaign is a good long run as well. I played Medal of Honor Limited edition recently and aced it in a single morning. Too many next gen games are geared at online co-op BS. Something I personally cannot stand. I want to play games for myself in my living room, not against some hacker from Sau-Paulo who does nothing but gaming and I don't stand a chance against. Well, COD World at war has a good long solo campaign, so traditional gamers can enjoy it as much as the co-op/online noddies.
Worth the couple of quid it costs for the purchase. Buy it, load up and prepare to get shot to pieces. It's not uber-violent either, so the younger gamers can blast away safe in the knowledge that their overly protective parents won't get twisted up over the action.
The actual single player and even multiplayer is very intense with body parts and blood flying everywhere and the harsh reality of that campaign which gives the World War 2 theme and the horrors of the Eastern European and Far East campaign some historical significance and this game still worth playing for that.
Don't think their will ever be another Call of Duty like this... so worth the buy
But it seems to work with little issues so im overall pleased
And obviously the game is incredible
Weapons return to the more typical ones of that era. I found the campaigns in the Pacific and new weapons like flamethrowers a really interesting change.
Characters voiced by Keiffer Sutherland and Gary Oldman make an appearance too!!
It's hard to review these games too in depth so I'd advise you buy it preowned for a few quid and try it yourself ;)
Game case came in excellent condition
Came with the booklet
And the game itself had no marks on the CD
Good seller, five stars
