Treyarch, the company building what would become Call of Duty: World at War, was responsible for the worst games in the franchise's history, Big Red One and Call of Duty 3. They were also bringing the Call of Duty franchise back to World War II, an era most gamers were happy to leave when Infinity Ward released Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare last year. Oh, and it didn't help Treyarch's cause that Call of Duty 4 was amazing. However, despite the deck being stacked against them, Treyarch created an enjoyable (though unremarkable) game."
