Call of Duty returns to its roots with Call of Duty: WWII – a breathtaking experience that redefines World War II for a new gaming generation. Land in Normandy on D-Day and battle across Europe through iconic locations in historys most monumental war. Experience classic Call of Duty combat, the bonds of camaraderie, and the unforgiving nature of war against a global power throwing the world into tyranny.
If you buy Call of Duty games every year, there’s no reason to pass on WWII, which is a quality installment in the long-running franchise. The single-player portion was surprisingly good, but with the exception of the new War mode, the multiplayer was not to my liking. The developers wanted the multiplayer to be more rapidly paced, but it lacks balance because the Airborne division is incredibly overpowered. The Nazi Zombies mode is fun, as always. WWII is a good break from the science-fiction mechanics of the past few releases in the series, and it’s a worthwhile purchase since you’re bound to sink dozens of hours into it.
There’s no denying that in the moment, the single-player campaign, the multiplayer modes, and Zombies mode are satisfying and create a well-tuned shooter experiences defined by super-high production values and polish. Take a longer view, however, and you’re likely to feel more than a little ennui over the setting and a bit let down by a game that feels like a corporate decision rather than a passion project. World War II defined the course of nations and the fate of millions. Call of Duty: WWII misses the opportunity to find its own, unique or emotionally compelling journey through the conflict. It is a mechanically solid, visually impressive shooter bolted to a story we’ve seen too many times.
Call of Duty: WW2 is refreshing thanks to its slower pace, historical weaponry and thematic divisions. However, this game does not really reinvent the wheel, especially when it comes to the single-player.
This game is a complete waste of money. Please, I urge you not to buy; you will be highly disappointed. From the basic non-strategical gameplay to the tiny maps there is not much to enjoy about this game. Compare this to another game with world war two style settings and guns like Battlefield One and there is no comparison. Battlefield One blows Call of Duty World at War out of the water. Call of Duty really let their fans down with this game. I don’t like the game play, maps are way too small, small amounts of people in a game (6 Person teams), and on top of that its just not fun. I was not a fan of Call of Duty’s last release of Advance Warfare but looking back even that is 100 times better than this new one. I am trying to find something positive to say about it so I will say that their cut scene are very cool and the graphics are amazing but non of that translates into the actual gameplay. The zombies can be fun and seems to be the main selling point of their game because its really the only thing people play. I would highly recommend NOT buying Call of Duty World War II. Instead, If you are looking for a strategic world war II game with big detailed maps and large amount of players in games then, I would Battlefield One. It far surpasses any of its competition at the moment and is an incredibly fun game to play.
