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 Theatre, 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.

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.

      Unprecedented WWII Cinematic Quality: Utilising the jaw-dropping and revolutionary Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare engine, Call of Duty: World at War delivers an unprecedented level of visual and cinematic effects to WWII. Highly-detailed character models, self-shadowing, environmental lighting and amazing special effects up the WWII authenticity to new heights. Depth of field, rim-lighting and texture-streaming technology bring the adrenaline-pumping combat to life. Physics-enabled battlefields and destructible cover immerse players into the harrowing and dynamic combat.

      Having played this through the beta and considering it's made by treyarc it is really very good,and dare i say it better than cod4.
      Having beta tested a few games in the past (Battlefield 2142,QuakeWars and world in conflict)Upon relese are usually better as sounds and effects have been removed to keep size of download small and make them more opimized for lower spec pc's.Looking back to cod4 it seemed too clean for war torn places whereas cod5 looks and sounds more atmospheric..

      Anyway preordered and looking forward to playing (mainly MP)

      Awesome on the beta, fast paced action with amazing graphics and sounds. Why do people feel the need to slate games? Comparing them to their previous titles? I don't recall cod 4 being set in ww2 fighting in the pacific against the japanese. See? They're totally different games.

      This beta's got a few bugs, but in all honesty no pc games ever 100% ok, there'll always be the occasionnal crash no matter what hardware you've got on it. So be patient and wait for the patches.

      In the mean time get out there and destroy the axis of evil, huzzah!

       Complete disapointment

      | | See all malgrimace's reviews (4)

      I was always apprehensive about this game, especially since it was made by the same team who did CoD3 - which was nothing special, but I was expecting more then this.

      The game itself is best summed up as a distraction. It is essentially a collection of clichés seen in every other game based in WW2, but were done better by those other games. There were one or two new ideas which were nice, and a couple of unusual weapons that I enjoyed (especially the flame-thrower).

      But the game itself is fundamentally floored. The AI is horrible for a start. Your team mates idle around behind you looking in random directions as if they're looking for their car keys, when really you just want the fellow with the Thomson to lead the assault.
      The enemy seem to just focus all their fire on you as well. It's irritating being in a charge with dozens of soldiers and having all the gunfire flying around your ears. On top of that, Banzai 1charging Japanese soldiers ran past whole squads to try and stick me... whilst my unit stood and watched it happening.

      The weapons seemed to have been tweaked to make it impossible to miss as well. Aiming involves pointing in the general direction of your enemy and pulling the trigger, it's rather hard to actually miss.

      Also, a nice addition to the game was the deployable weapons, such as Machine Guns, unfortunately, you have to be stood in EXACTLY the right place to deploy them - by which time, the things you're shooting at have already ran past you to stab you in the back.

      The path finding was a little messed up, and on several occasions I was pinned to walls by my own team, or my allies had gotten themselves trapped in walls, which is a feat because every level is essentially one big corridor that you're guided down, with Japanese/German soldiers hiding behind boxes along the way. One instance that really made me chuckle was a Panzer that ran a German soldier over, and the soldier was flapping from the back of the tank like a macabre flag.

      The game as a whole took 5 hours to complete on the Veteran setting, and it was nice to see the push into Berlin itself, which is something I don't believe I've seen done in other games, but the screaming of that God-awful Russian Sergeant made me glad it was all over.

      That said, the graphics were nice...

       Perfect.

      Dont understand how so many people are having trouble just to install this game...? I'll explain how i installed it.

      Put disc into drive. Clicked 'install'. Waited. Clicked 'play'. Played the game.

      Hardly rocket science. To everyone else this game is awesome. All the near perfect graphics of cod4 but in wwii !!! Which as everyone knows is what cod title's are all about! Multiplayer gives same thrill as cod4. It takes me back to the days of counter-strike and how much fun that was. This cod5 will last as long as cs, no doubt.

      Excellent.

       Absolutly fantastic game!

      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
