Bang For Your Buck: Call Of Duty, World At War

I had been hearing a lot of criticism on the new multiplayer, first-person shooter, Call of Duty: World at War. Many were complaining about the idea of going back to the Second World War theme. Consumers are saying that WWII games are redundant, and are too similar. I believe that this has a lot to do with the previous release from the Call of Duty series, which was COD4: Modern Warfare. COD4 was based on modern warfare where gamers were able to use modern guns and technology which is a lot different and fun from other previous war games that was set in WWI or WWII. The previous Call of Duty was such a good game that gamers got a bit spoiled and was skeptical on how any new up-coming title would compare, especially since the series was moving back to the old WWII settings.

I went ahead and bought the new COD5 and have not had any regrets from day one. First of all, Treyarch who is the developer of this new series is using the same graphic engine as in the previous version so the visuals are superb. The game play is about the same just with different weapons and perks to fit the WWII theme. One good thing about the COD series is the play back value it holds. Beating the campaign mode in this game is just getting you prepared for what’s ahead. You will be stuck on playing the multiplayer death matches live online. This will keep you happy until the next edition of COD.

However, in COD: World at War, when you beat the campaign, the game unlocks a Nazi Zombie game mode. This game mode is similar to the Horde mode in Gears of Wars 2. This game mode places you and/or three other players in a broken down house killing off dead Nazi Zombies who are trying to break in the house to kill you. The levels are endless as each time you kill off a certain amount of zombies, the stage level goes up and the zombies move quicker and are harder to kill. I believe this is a great edition to what is already a great game which seals the deal for a terrific bang for your buck video game.

    I heard there was a sale on Call of Duty 5 for Xbox 360 for like $39.99. I was checking a few website and only saw it on sale at for $49.99. I got mine for $59.99 so that’s some savings there. I haven’t checked in stores, so it could still be $39.99. BTW love the game. My first Call of Duty game, since I barely own a Xbox 360. Happy playing everyone!

    COD5… didnt think I was going to like this game because its not modern war like COD4. Didn’t think I was going to like the old guns. But I’m addicted to this as I was to COD4. Love the Zombie Level. Highest we got with 4 players is level 26.
