I have to admit I was very skeptical about Call of Duty: World at War upon learning it wasn't being developed by Infinity Ward, the original creators of the series and developers of all previous PC releases. However, as it turns out, World at War is a

The odds have always been stacked against Call of Duty: World at War. This sequel revisits an undeniably exhausted FPS setting—World War II—and wasn’t designed by series creator Infinity Ward, but Treyarch has delivered a sufficiently...

Call of Duty World at War is an excellent game overall, it’s got everything that any gamer would want in a game of this type, blood, gore, violence, bad language and so much more. Treyarch does a great job utilizing the COD4 engine for this game,...

Eventually I wussed out and played through it on easy because that at least kept the frequency of the instant deaths down to a minimum and since the game has no AI and the enemies are equally numerous and about as easy to kill, it appears to me that...

After a brief, but brilliant, journey to the present day with Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, this latest instalment of the long-running shooter series returns to its World War 2 roots. This is a surprising move considering Modern Warfares...

COD 5 is the first person shooter game that you should be playing this holiday season, especially if you like all Call of Duty games. COD 5 plays and looks similar to the previous Call of Duty game because of it using the same engine, but this means...

World at War could be seen as something of a step back for the Call of Duty series, which shifted to the present day with last year’s Modern Warfare. Instead of re-using the previous game’s frenetic contemporary setting, World at War returns...

Finally we have WaW’s multiplayer component that’s nearly as awesome as Modern Warfare’s. Once again Treyarch have blatantly lifted 90% of MW’s features but then again, why fix something that isn’t broken? They’ve...

Call of Duty: World at War launched and found some excellent sales its first week, despite fighting an uphill battle against a bad reputation and some at least partially unfair animosity towards developer Treyarch. Call of Duty is the creation of...

Just when you thought Modern Warfare was the current FPS fad Treyarch welcomes you back to World War II in Call of Duty: World at War. Like most of my friends I was disappointed to hear that we would be revisiting the tired WWII era this year, but...

Call of Duty: World at War is more than a rehash. It provides a refreshing change to the well known maps and weapons from Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, and makes some positive changes. The single-player campaign involves a riveting and emotional...

Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare is easily my most played game of 2007. It was, in fact, the title that made me truly care about online gaming, thanks to its fast-paced "meat grinder" style of play and fantastic promotion system. It was one of the...

If there’s one word that sums up World at War for us, it’s ‘brutal.’ The latest Call of Duty, developed over the last two years by Treyarch – not series creator Infinity Ward – is a brutal slog through a WWII setting...

To call it Call of Duty 4 with a World War II skin is insulting to Treyarch because Call of Duty: World at War is so much more than that. Its a great follow up to Modern Warfare and proves that World War II is still a viscerally charged conflict to...
