Well lets start this review by explaining my situation, before pre ordering this game i did alot of background research and looking at other reviews from people who had the beta keys. Many people said well its so much like call of duty 4 and its rubbish because this that and the other.
Well i said SCREW THOSE COMMENTS IM GOING TO TRY IT MYSELF.
Anyway i pre ordered the game and it was here day before release and i was playing it for a good 4 hours as i only got in from work at 6 : [
First off the starting scene is very very good and you can tell straight away that activision had something to do with it, Graphically the game is very very high and like most games out there you will see this is one of few great graphics games out there.
Next i noticed the amount of attention to detail the game had such as the little parts of ash on ciggerettes and cigars etc
The menus are well presented and look better with a quicker response time.
Campaign mode is also very very good, if any of you have seen the film behind enemy line and everyone knows how good that was you will notice that when you play as the russians there is an extract there from the film that you play, this is also a very similar style level to "All Ghilllied Up"
Sounds are very good and the music sounds like something from "We Were Soliders"
Overall this game is a 5 star for me as its has kept its online ethos.
The game engine that was used in call of duty 4 has been passed forward to call of duty world at war. Looking at the back of the box Treyarch wasnt the only company who made it. Activision also were one of the other companies who played a large part in the development of this game.
Although i much prefer using the newer edition guns like in Call Of Duty 4 i still like the ones in call of duty 5.
Flamethrowers are amazing!!!!!!!!!!!
Shadowing and environmental details are pin sharp and overall very impressive.
Many people still say i will wait for cod 6 and leave this behind.
YOU WILL BE WASTING YOUR TIME.
If your like me and many im sure are you have now played call of duty 4 for a year now, you know every camp spot, spray point, best perk, gun and claymore position. TRY SOMETHING NEW this is well worth the buy.
I enjoy this so much already and i havent had it more than two days.
Thank you Play and thank you Treyarch / Activision.
Hope this review helped
