Finally! I received this game about 3 days ago and haven't been able to put it down since! This game is everything that everyone is talking about! I heard so much about the game that I knew that it was good! To me, if a bunch of people keep talking about a game, then the game must be good. So, I couldn't wait to get my hands on it!
The game is set in the World War 2 era. And I know that WW2 has been covered before in other war games, but it has never been done like this! First of all, as with all Call Of Duty games, the graphics are top-notch. The storyline revolves around two privates from two different armies. The U.S. Army and The Russian Army. PVT. Miller and PVT.Petrenko.
Pvt. Miller's mission involves the U.S. Army's fight against the Japanese Army on various Pacific island's under Japanese control. You and the American Army are a formidable force, but the Japanese Army...Whooo!!! The Japanese Army let you know just how far they are willing to go to defend their island! Just like your grandfather told you, the Japanese are dug in, and it's your job to go get them out, with the help of your trusty flamethrower!
The addition of the flamethrower has got to be the best weapon on the game! Between the Japanese sniping at you from the treetops, or them screaming, "BANZAI!!!" as they run straight at you! You WILL need the flamethrower! You will also need it to clear out those underground compounds that the Japanese are so heavily dug into!
PVT. Petrenko's mission is equally as amazing. But instead of fighting the Japanese, you are defending Mother Russia against the incredible might of the German Army! The Germans are no less ruthless than the Japanese! They hit you with everything they they have and pull no punches! If you think that you will just stand up and start shooting everything that moves, then you are sorely mistaken!
If you don't take cover, you will die! If you don't make sure that they are dead, you will die! The good news is that you can start over again from your last spot! The bad news is that if you don't learn from your mistake, you will be starting from that same spot over and over again! Even on the medium difficulty, this game is a handful for any first person shooter fan! And a handful of difficulty is what the online component of the game is!
The online component of Call Of Duty : World At War is just as impressive as last years Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare! Even better! With the addition of vehicles and German attack dogs, the makers of this game have really outdone themselves! It's one thing to have to worry abut your online enemies, but now you have to worry about the German attack dogs! And believe me, they are not easy to shoot! Plus once you shoot them, they alert your online enemies to your position. So you have been, in effect, smoked out!
This game is, as I said before, a definite must-have for any first person shooter fan! And you will enjoy yourself tremendously.
