"When I heard Call of Duty was returning to its roots I was a tad shaken. WW II has been immortalized in the realm of video games, and Infinity Ward's departure from the norm was what made Call of Duty 4 stand out. The forth iteration of Call of Duty was gem, a multiplayer masterpiece. Its riveting single player was only surpassed by its impressive and enticing multiplayer. It took the franchise out of the past, and caught it up with modern conventions. Instead of living in the past, it began to shape the future. Thus, I was a little unnerved knowing that Call of Duty would return to the hands of Treyarch and the realm of WW II. Would they be able to build on Modern Warfare's success?
At first glance, Treyarch seems to have answered that question with a resounding yes. The game may have moved to the past in setting, but it's a modern shooter. The customization and class structure of the past remains. In fact, nearly everything from the last game is still there. The game is a pleasure to play, but something just doesn't sit right. It's the same game."
