Gamedaily writes: "After last year's remarkable Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, the series returns with Call of Duty: World At War. Rather than sticking with modern times, Activision revisits World War II and showcases two unique campaigns. One follows a U.S. soldier as he battles Japanese forces in the South Pacific, while the other casts you as a Russian warrior pushing Nazis from Berlin.
World at War's graphics bring out the genuine, raw horror of World War II, from German soldiers shooting helpless adversaries to a Japanese sergeant slicing a POW's throat. The lighting looks spectacular, especially as you work your way through the first stage. Blowing up structures in a coastline village set against a bright moon is an amazing sight, almost enough to distract you from what's happening on-screen."
