Some gamers are passing up what could be the next spectacular Call of Duty experience simply because of prejudice against Treyarch. Is that prejudice justified, or should gamers give Treyarch and World at War a fair chance?
COD5: WaW is bad. Very bad. Its downgrade from COD2. Stick to your Gears of Wars 2 and Resistance 2 people! Before you disagree and spawn crap and flaming like you did. Here is proof I have game: http://i12.photobucket.com/...
Anyway, I got the game and am looking forward to it. Particularly the Nazi Zombie co-op mode. Something about killing a Nazi TWICE seems to be more fun than it should be!
gratz on beeing a pirate.... i hate you guys
Hurray for people who point fingers without knowing nothing!
COD 5 is awesome seriously here is my take on it... Might contain a little spoiler For anyone that is still on the edge of getting this game trust me this game is great. I have played for about 4 hours into the campaign currently on chapter 4 on german soils. I mean the first three levels were great. Imagine running through a battle field on a beach with tanks and flame thrower with snipers perched in trees shooting at you. The AI is great enemies will attack you from all sides and even run at you with a sword from behind. The graphics are definitely better than COD 4 but the one bad thing about COD WAW is that there is barely any new innovation. Most of the new stuff comes in the MP but as for single player still plays like COD4 but in WW 2. The Audio is great with a lot of good acting. (Mostly thanks to Keifer Sutherland) Honestly guys even though this might be a WW 2 game they did this game so well that it is definitly worth 60 bucks. I would defineitly say right now the single player is a lot better than resistance 2 and I love resistance 2. Hope to see many of you guys on it.
I just bought this game, still in the package. R2 and LBP are taking up most of my time right now. Not a fan of WWII shooters but loved CoD4, so I am hoping this is like COD4. I am not a fan of Tryarch, I am one of the 10 people that bought Quantum of Solice last week.. And I bought Web of Shadows for my little brother for Christmas. So hoping they come through this time. Otherwise I am done with this company!
I have to disagree. COD5 is actually quite better than what I expected. They took the best parts of COD3, and COD4 and motherf'in added gore to it. For example, using a sniper rifle. You hit them in the arm, that thing is flying right off. You shoot them in the head, you'll see chunks fly all over the place and of course they are now decapitated. The AI is also a bit smarter than previous CODs. You're comrades actually help you kill the enemies and help you advance. WOW! No more relying on just you 100%. It's now more like 75% you have to do the work. All in all, COD5 deserves a chance and it's a great step up from COD4. The only thing I can see why people will not want it, is the weapons do feel so old and familiar. Going from COD4's weapons to WWII weapons feel so weak.
well well then maybe you cover your tracks next time. -Your last time played is the 8.11.2009 (game wasnt released nowhere not even at the early seeling stores) -The earliest date the pirated version was uplaoded is (2008-11-08 00:52:12 ) i done my homework mate. -You have a hell a alot of current games in that list. -Your the first in a long time that screenshots the game instead a photo of the case and cd. then make a photo of your case and cd i shut up asap.
Keep spamming crap. Yes I did download. Why? I couldn't wait. Also I download for another reason. TO TRY OUT. Most Demos do not show you the game properly. I download and try them. If I love them I will buy (Normally on PS3 because its pretty playing on sofa). Good thing I did this way. I was going to buy Resistance 2 and COD5. Instead I will buy Resistance 2 and Little Big Planet. I already pre ordered R2 from play.com and already bought LBP its on the way. Where I live there is no video game rentals or big video game shops to trade in. If there was I would just rent as it more easy and hassel free but I do not have the privilage.
Gun_Senshi hahah that is so hilarious cought you right there. Btw i hate those cheap excuses "try out" you pirated the games on your pc, end of story.
I've seen plenty of screenshots and videos to know that this will be a nice looking game. As for Treyarch, they made CoD2 for the PS2, and it was alot better then CoD: Finest Hour(PS2) by Spark. CoD3 was a really good WW2 game and my personal favorite. The problem wasn't that Treyarch didn't do a good job on the game, its that they did't advance the WW2 gener. It was the same kind of mission structure that we were used to seeing in previous WW2 games.
I was one of those individuals who said I would pass on World at War... But after playing the demo, and getting my other friends to play the demo, and having everyone change their mind about the game and going out to buy it... I think my opinion has changed! It is a good game! At least rent it!
I did try it out. In fact I am going to buy for PS3 now to play online with friends. Let me explain why I hated it before. First Level is fine, some graphical glitches and fine. Second level is too repetitive and annoying. Third level Treyarch tries to copy the Sniper level from COD4 exactly the same, this reall put me off. (This is where I stopped) 4th Level game start becoming good and the levels after it it keeps getting better and better. I love the russian levels specifically. See you online on PSN idiot that flame without ever knowing anything
lol nr 1 get lost man!
I just now got the game. Hopefully it's fun...
@3 This game is glitchy beyond belief. I'm trapped in a stone...
Wow, already arguing and stuff in the comments. =/ Anyway, I've been wanting to try this for a while. Hopefully I can get a copy soon.
I have read 3 reviews so far that all say that World at War is great, so I don't know what the haters are smoking.
there smoking straight crack out there moms pipe especially this first guy who thinks everyone cares for his negative comments anyways i know the multiplayer is kickass and since thats what you'll spend most time thats what should really matter
its not that we got smthin against treyarch , its just that ppl have clearly showed they dont wanna return to ww2 anymore , i mean , fkc , its like the 9th ww2 game or smthin , the attractive thing about cod4 was its modern locations and weapons , i dont wanna get back to stupid artillaries or w/e they used back there, and they r smart enough to realize that
I probably won't be buying World At War. Seriously, how many more World War 2-based FPS titles do we need? I also wasn't really much of a fan of CoD4. I would still say it's unfair to disregard a game because of a change of developer. Call of Duty 3 was developed by Treyarch too, IIRC.
I'm rather impressed that Treyarch decided to take the game back to it's roots: Activision's decision to leap to more modern venues seemed bizarre when there were other notable engagements in WW2 to take on. It may just end up restoring the series to where it came from and improving it at the same time.
I think I have a friend interested in this, if it's co-op. Can someone confirm this? Ok, I got the answer at CheatCC (review). I'm just a lazy bum sometimes. :)
There is a 4 player online co-op campaign and alsoa 4 player online zombie mode to unlock once you completedthe SP campaign....
Got this snippet at cheatCC: "You can play with your best friend at home via split-screen or you can get matched with up to three other companions online. Depending on the amount of players in the cooperative campaign, enemy A.I. will adjust accordingly. Additionally, experience can be accrued during cooperative play that can be applied toward online multiplayer ranks. Also, if unlocked, secret Death Cards in the Solo Campaign can be used during co-op to modify rules and add interesting turns to standard gameplay mechanics, such as the ability to heal downed mates, limit kills to head shots only, add undead soldiers, etc." I understand this as you can do the whole campaign in hotseat co-op, but gets some bonuses if you do the solo campaign first and gets some death cards.
I was in Walmart last night after work, waited for 45 minutes in the line up (I cant believe there is a lineup at midnight!)but ended up not getting it. Stupid purolator did not deliver them, the guy thought they have it at the backall along...I never seen so many hardcore gamer that pissed! LOL
This game has everything stacked against it: a) Makers of CoD3 b) WWII again?? zzzz c) So many other shooters out there d) Makers of CoD3 e) Seriously, WWII again? I have absolutely NO hype for this game. CoD4 sold so much because it was modern warfare. They took that away with this game and are planning on riding the CoD name to sales... It is a carbon clone of CoD4 without cool weapons. Color me unimpressed.
"It is a carbon clone of CoD4" You see you obviously haven't played the game or else you wouldn't say that. This game barely has any resemblance to COD4 other than the engine. Infact, it looks like they managed to improve the textures, added more anti-aliasing, added more destructible physics, improved AI, GORE GORE GORE, and looks already like it's running at a higher resolution while still maintaining 60 frames per second. It also has different storytelling elements, and a much much more serious tone. You're no longer a private that's jacked up on testosterone feeling invincible just because you're in the U.S. marines like COD4. You're battered up, beaten up, your buddies are dying around you etc. Heck, they even went as far as making your hands bruised and cut up bleeding while you're shooting your weapon. That's how detailed treyarch went. So like I said, before any of you guys knock it just because it's WWII or Treyarch, you should at least try it out. Rent it or borrow it from a friend. If you play it and STILL don't like it, then that's your opinion. As for me, FIRST DAY PURCHASE...
Pennywise, you DEFINE "prejudice". I hope you don't think of your mother that way.
It's not bad. Not great but pretty decent. I've heard good things about the MP maps...seems they picked the worse ones for the beta.
the game's ok. as mentioned, the gore makes it awesome. short campaign about 6 hrs. took me 8-9 on hard (died alot because of stupid grenades...) the game deserves a rent at most imo. the zombie mode looks like the only thing that keeps it fun. the music is really whack at times... (whack as in it doesnt belong or just doesnt sound ww2 ish.
im going to get it in the next few hours ill post thoughts later, but if you are a fan of fps who the hell cares what skin it has. If the game plays great im all for it and i was all over cod4 guess im going back into the line of fire after all.
A lot of people aren't giving this game the time of day. Well, i'm going to play it and maybe buy it. If you're not into WWII anymore then that's fine but you can be missing out on a great game. It can still be really fun. And COD3 might have sucked but a) Treyarch had more time with this one b) COD4 engine is being used and c) devs can put out better products, just ask Guerilla Games. Anyhow, this game sounds like a lot of fun, if it is i'm buying it. I just hope Treyarch supports this better than Infinity Ward.
ok, so call of duty 3 is nothing compared to call of duty 4. but you can not judge those two games together, because treyarch had a VERY limited amount of time to develop call of duty 3. Call of duty: world at war, on the otherhand, should be outstanding! it uses the engine from call of duty 4, so if you liked call of duty 4, you are bound to like call of duty: world at war. also, people think that because it is world war 2, it can't be fun. this is completely false. it will just as fun, if not more fun than call of duty 4 was. give it a try, if you don't like it; you must be an idiot, because it uses the same engine as call of duty 4. ;D
It plays just like CoD2 with a hint of CoD4 somewhere. I love it and playing it brings back those CoD-CoD2'sleepless nights. You guys can be prejudice all you like. I'll be at the side, killing some banzai-soldiers. peace.
The article is stupid and pointless and the title to this even sounds like something Adam Sessler would say...
you know what that does sound like something sessler would say bubbles for you lol.
The article makes a lot more sense than your useless comment. Why don't you read something else if all you're going to do is complain?
I have to laugh at that part about Treyarch's hard work. Infinity Ward did the really hard work. They created the game engine this game is built on. Treyarch really just took that and put their own levels on top of it. So they did some work but they had a lot of help. It might still be worth buying but Treyarch didn't do this alone. They had a lot of help.
ok picked it up about a hour ago played around great game if you love cod you will love this one without a doubt go get it.........why are you still reading go get it damn!
I see a major problem with this game first of all it feels, looks and plays the same as COD 4 which I already have and there is just too many great games to play and buy right now. Already got Fable 2, Far Cry 2 and Gears 2 ( horde is the most fun I had in years) so i'm sorry for Treyarch but their timing for this release and WW 2 setting is why I'm not going to get this game anytime soon.
i will also say this if you go into this game thinking that you are going to get cod4 you are going to disappointed treyarch did a good job of differentiating its game from iw's but never the less the $hit is good
