Okay so yes Call of Duty WaW is just another army style game set in the clutches of World War 2. And yes it is very difficult at times. All things considered I have never put so much time into a game before.
This was bought as a present for me, but Ive neverbeen a huge fan of this kind of game so it sat in a cupboard for a few months until my brother in law needed help completing his copy. After a few hours on co-op I was enticed.
The cut-scenes are great (A little annoying if you have already seen them once but same with all games), the detail is amazing and the maps are absolutly beautiful!
But thats just the campaign, after that theres the Multiplayer, granted its a little better on Xbox but the PC version has a few secrets of its own that i will cover in a moment.
The multiplayer is pretty much the same as Call of Duty 4 but with different weaponry and a few more perks. The maps make it a whole new experience though, plus whenever you think you are unbeatable there is always a little window or something that lets someone get the drop on you.
Next after you have completed the campaign you unlock the famous "Nazi Zombie Mode". On single player its fun but not the best. Co-operative its the most addictive gam I have played yet, this is also the only mode where you can use the "Ray Gun" (Other than a cheat on a particular level but i want tell you which).
You and your friends must work together stopping waves of zombies from eating your brains by a: killing them, b:boarding up windows so they cant get in, c:just plain running away.
It gets better though, over the past year the Nazi Zombies and multiplayer have hd new map packs added to them, making the experience even better. Rather than running around one very small building on round 30 knowing your time is over on the original Nazi Zombie map "Nacht Der Untoten", They have added more inventive levels and a lot more detail to the AI.
2: Verruckt : Zombie Asylum
Added perk machines just like in the multiplayer, change of weaponry, a much larger map and smarter zombies. And the much appreciated "bouncing betties" which are a kind of landmine defence that cannot hurt the players. And lets not forget the electric fences, the perfect defence... for 30 secs then the tide changes!
3:Shi No Numa - Zombies in the Swamp
A absolutly massive map with one twist... The zombies are Japanese (or Korean i forget) instead of Nazis. And they introduced the dreaded Hell Hounds. As well as a new gun (The Wander Waffe DG2 - a electric shotgun that will chain link between any zombies in range! Like the previous levels it has perks and betties, electric fences etc but the AI has been much improved an there are a lot more easter eggs that start building the "Story of the Nazi Zombies". This is the first map where characters and story was properly introduced. Now you will player as either Dempsy, Rictofen, Nickolai or Takeo, all of whom are from different countries.
4: Der Riese - Zombie Factory
The latest addition to the Nazi Zombie experience and it does not dissapoint (apart from a few minor problems and planned things that were removed before release like The Ammo Machine, The Type 99, The Sawn-Off Double Barreled Shotgun, some of the fly trap game and a small part of the map was removed). It keeps the perks, fences, betties, wander waffe, the characters and voices and includes even more. Once again a large map but it has two floors (so did veruckt btw), they added the boxie knife to replace the original, teleporters, monkey bombs and the wonderful Pack-A-Punch machine that is used to give your weapons a much needed upgrade. Packed with nice spots to hide it also has its fair share of easter eggs
Definatly a good Buy
