It finally moved away from the World War II setting and into the modern age, which gave developers Infinity Ward the chance to create a brand new storyline for players to enjoy, as well as giving them a whole range of modern weaponry with which to kill each other. With a stellar multiplayer side it quickly became one of the best and most popular shooters, even going so far as to consistently challenge Halo 3 as the most played online game on Xbox Live. So when I first heard that Call of Duty: World at War was making a return to World War II, I was both surprised and concerned at the same time. Would Treyarch be able to make a game that matched up to the awesome Modern Warfare while returning to an era that has been done many many times in games before? The answer to that question is unfortunately no, but that still doesn't stop it from being a pretty enjoyable romp."
