"CoD: WWII is constantly being compared with World at War, but was WAW really that great? I booted up the ol' 360 to find out... and it wasn't good." - Park @CD
These family friendly World War 2 games suck. At least the old ones were brutal and captured the vibe better.
I wouldn't call WaW family friendly in the slightest. Or are you saying this is one of the "old ones"?
I would out WaW as old ones. Its quite grisly.
Yeah I would agree. World at War was really good and dark. A lot of the flamethrower scenes were really violent. I don't know how they said this game sucks because it's one of the good ones from the Call of Duty series. I do have to say that this game had the worst and most frustrating difficulty in veteran mode though. One enemy shouldn't be able to throw 5 grenades I want while still shooting a machine gun under each arm. Lol, it was absolutely insane and completely bonkers on its hardest settings
Im talking about COD WW2 and Battlefield V.
@NecrumOddBoy I remember at least a few times where I didn't even bother trying to dodge the grenades on veteran because it didn't matter which direction I wanted to go, there was already a grenade waiting there for me.
Will never forget that opening scene when you're pretending to be dead and seeing Nazi soldiers executing survivors. That music and staring into the sky to see the trails of smoke from the bombers. And that's one of memorable experiences with WaW. If they're making the remaster/remake, for sure, I've gotta have it.
Dimitri and Reznov FTW!
This is one of the best CoDs ever made. Both single and MP were fantastic.
I was a tester for CoD WAW to say it was a "s&!t game" is ridiculous. I can't fairly rank it myself because I've only briefly played one of the Cods that have come out since then but it was definitely a good game. Truth is though, after spending all that time with it I've been pretty burnt on CoD ever since. I remember testing the crap out of the Zombie mode. I can't believe that took off like it did (even though it was a fun extra)
It may be buggy to some extend but the best WW2 game I've ever played Single and MP.
I think that was when CoD was at its prime,CoD 4 and right after that WaW?yeah.
but the grenade spam kinda ruined the fun especially on higher difficulties
Nice bait. WAW is in the top 5 COD games for sure. It's in 3rd place for me after COD4 and MW2.
WAW is legit, personally it's hard for me to choose between it and MW2 as my favorite.
They're both great. I don't think we will ever see COD titles that great again unfortunately.
WaW was arguably the best WW2 game ever made. The campaign was gritty, it had 4 player campaign co-op, it brought zombies into the series, and the multiplayer maps were pretty much all excellent. This was back when CoD games were packed full with content, making them the best value by far in gaming. WaW is a gem in a series that hasn't been any good since Black Ops 2.
Man, I really liked Black Ops 2. It was a very cool experience on Wii U as well playing on the tablet. And playing with motion controls wasn't even fair to others xD It's amazing how far the series has fallen since then.
No, it's not. It is one of the best CoD games ever made. It had an amazing campaign, great multiplayer and introduced zombies.
waw is my favortie cod. Its what got me into cod, I mostly played zombies though. The savages send dogs to do their work. Op dogs lol
Lol maybe you could have also tried the last 5 COD games, they're worse.
It definitely was better than WW2.
I mean you're allowed to have wrong opinions 😉 /s
I loved it. Brutal kills. Felt like a solid war game. Not this garabage now a days
One of my favorite CoD campaigns as well! Loved it...remember going crazy trying to complete it on Veteran
Slow day, pining for an article to write?! WAW was excellent. Definitely in the top 5 CODs for me.
I wouldn't say it was shit, but I did enjoy the first and 2nd COD more.
The Japan Pacific campaign was great and I miss that flamethrower.
COD 2 will always hold a special place in my heart cause it was my first MP game I took seriously on consoles. Great memories playing split screen, what a game. WAW is better then that POS WW2
I love it when hate articles pop up for easy ad money.
Plus it was 32 v 32 n not 6 v 6
Keifer Sutherland alone discredits this entire opinion
It was good. The code was crap. Too many glitches ruined it for me
WAW is my favorite behind COD4.
WaW is the best game in COD history!
All of them were shit to some extent. Except for MW 2
Yea, i strongly disagree with this... COD 2, COD4:Modern Warfare & Modern Warfare 2. and ofc COD: World At War were representing golden age of Call Of Duty franchise (quality wise).
Personally, I played WaW the most out of all the CoD's and loved it. Campaign was brilliant and multiplayer was so much fun, even had tanks, plus the maps were great.
This was the first game that made me realize there is an infinite spawning of Nazis if you don’t move forward. And they throw grenades like it was burning a hole in their pockets.
