OXM UK: Call of Duty: World at War Review

OXM UK writes: "War. What is it bad for? It's a question games have rarely asked, let alone answered, and that goes double for answering it as well as Call of Duty: World at War does.

From the violent opening to the poignant ending, this is Treyarch's middle finger to those who said that they could never make a war game as sophisticated, slick, or stunning as Infinity Ward's Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare.

Maybe Call of Duty 3's harsh reception has turned out to be a good thing. Treyarch has pushed itself further than ever before and come up with a Call of Duty game that comfortably matches, and sometimes even dares to excel, Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare.

Those worried that World War II has been done to death, fear not. Treyarch's willingness to push the boundaries has uncovered a side to the war few developers even knew existed, and we'll be damned if it doesn't make for one hell of a game to boot." (Call of Duty: World at War, Xbox 360) 9/10
