After the huge success of Call of Duty 4 I was really looking forward to the release of this. I got it was excited to play on it. The maps are excellent, the guns are fab. World War settings are just so much better. But then the graphics are pretty much exactly the same; terrible! Everything is so unrealistic, it just looks like some cartoon. There is no fantastic scenes, so fans of games such as Farcry 2 with immense scenery will be dissapointed. Similarly, you dont get much choice about how to complete missions. But, the online play is brilliant, as in COD4, and the missions are so much fun. As for the claims about bugs online, i have only came across as many of these server timed out e.t.c's as normally in COD4 having had the game for about a week. Improved multiplayer and multiplayer campaign make it so much more fun, and these modes are spectacular. Overall though I would greatly rate this game, especially for newcomers to the Call of Duty series. Poor quality graphics, but great gameplay, a really fun miltiplayer features, fun online mode, the fab Nazi Zombie game, and a overall cool system make this a decent game. Worth getting! This is improved from COD4, but certainly not advanced, there's nothing extra special about it, no matter what your mates say!
