When Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare was announced many people were skeptical of how the translation to modern-day warfare would affect the game. Thankfully many gamers shared the same opinion that it felt good to get finally get out of World War II and play in a different time frame. Gamers were eager to find out where the next game in the series would take them, and it proved to be back in the 1940's with a World War II setting once again.
Call of Duty: World at War takes place on two different fronts. The first being the American soldiers against the Japanese in the Pacific (a first for the series) and the other being the Russian's against Hitler's War Machine. The Russian missions start off at Stalingrad and end up at the Fall of Berlin. These missions feel pretty much the same as previous World War II games, due to the setting, but the American missions are really where this game shines.
