Lengthy singleplayer campaign is engaging.
Fun coop mode.
Bloody and gory.
Epic set pieces.
Killer voice acting.
Brutal combat is a welcome addition to the CoD series.
Gritty, exciting story.
Same excellent multiplayer system.
Fourplayer cooperative campaign.
Makes us long for Call of Duty 4.
Back to WWII yet again.
Feels a bit too much like Modern Warfare for its own good.
Single player campaign is too short.
Familiar setting and game mechanics.
