"Let's be honest. The only question everyone seems to want the answer to is whether Call of Duty: World at War is better than CoD4 or not. Right? Thankfully, the answer is a lot more involved than you might think..." - excerpt from PS3 Attitude.
umm,. no its not. Its good, but no where near as good as cod4. Its new and fresh but cod4 will not be topped until killzone 2 comes out.
have you played it or are you just following the herd. Cod4 was exaggerated - it was a solid shooter just as cod5 is also a solid shooter - they are both as good as each other to me, based on the same engine. i have to hand it to the media, they have the ability to brainwash ppl .. WOW
But I will say it's way more intense. The way they japanese run straight at you. All of a sudden. From some grass. Or the ghost bullets. From the trees. Anyone saying it's not intense? Then you aren't playing it on veteran. And yes it does play the same as COD4, so if you enjoyed COD4 for the gameplay, but don't want to whine about "it's WWII, I'm sick of WWII" like some baby, then this is the shooter to get.
Its great, easily as good as COD4, and IMO probably better. I feel the graphics have had a notch in the right direction, awsome in every way. Annoys me that once again gaming sites etc have downplayed it because 'it does nothing new' and all that lameness. Review a game for what it is for god sake!
Here is my checklist Graphics - More or less the same Gameplay - The same ( As in Character movement and shooting ) Story - very similar to COD4 but COD4 Better Online Multiplayer - exactly the same but only difference is tanks, dogs, co-op and the best bit which is the Nazi Zombie mode. All in all a fantastic effort and worthy of buy if not at least a rent.
...of your checklist - having played the game through for the review: Graphics - better. More destructible environments. Better lighting. Gameplay - The same, but with better enemy AI. Story - very similar to COD4, but does require you to not have 'flashback-itis'. If you don't like stories that hop around across the years, you won't like this. Online Multiplayer - The same assured experience. Additional points: Co-op mode for the first time in the CoD series adds extra value, replayability and depth. And Zombie Nazi's FTW!
CODWAW has one (not 100% working but it is working, COD4 - none, even after all players asked for it. IW ignored their customers!
graphics in COD:4 are soo much better than WaW. WaW is so damn linear its incredible. At least COD:4 gave you some room ro breathe. And who the hell wants to go back in time, without the M4 without the awesome M16 without the 50 cal, to WaW where its garands and tommy guns. Come on. COD 4 IS STILL THE KING, UNTIL THEIR NEXT GAME.
All I can say is "PTRS-41". Read up on that anti-tank sniper rifle. That gun was way more bad ass then the Barret .50 Cal.
thats a question only we... can answer
cod4 changed the way we look at fps, WaW is just as good so that has to say something. (Try beating it on Veteran, "Blowtorch and Corkscrew" is almost impossible)
this game does not play as well as COD4, I'm sorry.. I've been playing it non stop for a week and at times it is pissin me off. Hit detection on Multiplayer is horrible.. or the weapons arent balanced well.. anyone who has Played COD4 multiplayer and is playing this now will agree, its not as fun. Something seems very much unbalanced with this one..
