Tech Olive: Call of Duty: World at War Review

When Treyarch announced that their newest Call of Duty game would once again be set in World War II time period, people where skeptical and upset to say the least. Call of Duty 4 had been such an amazing hit. Why would they go back to a battle too often done? Personally, I didn't have much of a problem with the return to WWII. Yes, it may have already been done, but I think it's still has a little more to give, and so did Treyarch, it would seem.

to see if COD5 can beat R2 in average score. No fanboyism here, just curious really.

BattleAxe3628d ago

I don't see why not, the media is biased against the PS3.

Bladestar3628d ago (Edited 3628d ago )

@BattleAxe - lol! if you believe that COD4 destroyed Resistance 1 in terms of review score and sells because, "the media is biased against the PS3"... then your love for Sony is blinding you my friend.

La Chance3628d ago (Edited 3628d ago )

you guys are disapointed by the hope you created yourself.

or maybe Res 2 isnt a perfect game.

or maybe it actually deserves the scores it got.

or just maybe people arent obligated to thing like the couple of diehards on this site who think Res 2 is a 9.9/10

By the way how come the media wasnt biaised when MGS4 came out ? And how come they werent biaised with LBP ?

I dont understand you guys...

Nowhere on the entire world wide web will you see 360 fans say stuff like "the media is biased" even when NG2 wasnt getting perfect scores.

Even when Fable 2 gets 8/10's you dont see 360 fans speaking about conspiracy.

Games like LBP or MGS4 got the scores they got simply because they deserve it.

Res 2 got the scores it got because it deserves it.

Why cant you just accept it ?

just go and try to join an online match on Gears 2 (if you can) and stop trolling bashing the PS3. Resistance 1 was a launch title that blew Perfect Dark Zero out of the water, Call of Duty 4 came a year later.

@La chance: R2 deserves a 9.0 and Gears 2 a 9.3 IMO Gears has better graphics, they start showing about midway through the campaign but Resistance has a better multiplayer...

@Panthers: the SP its getting bashed cause it's hard for the casual player, Gears 2 felt easier than Gears 1 on hardcore

Panthers3628d ago

Resistance 2 probably wont get as high because graphics are so important. But I dont understand why everyone is bashing the singleplayer of R2. I loved it. It was so fun.

La Chance3628d ago (Edited 3628d ago )

it and stuff but you guys are bitter because Gears 2 is killing Res 2 in almost every domain possible.From sales to the critics and to the game itself.

Just have a look at the "Gears online needs fix" thread.

Get over it guys the only people who actually thought Res 2 had a chance against Gears 2 were Sony fanboys themselves.

Nobody else.Stop living in your little dream world and wake up.

If Gears 2 had got lower scores than Res 2 nobody would be complaining about "the biased media".

original seed3628d ago

WTF are you talking about? Join a game of gears "if you can'. There is nothing wrong with Gears online. You only think that R2 is better online because you're either blind or a fanboy.

"Res 2 got the scores it got because it deserves it.

Why cant you just accept it ?"

I can accept it... 9.5 from IGN and a 9.1 from GT seems pretty fair to me... I guess it did get the scores it "deserved"

wtf R2 got a .1 lower avg then gears2 that is 1%. I've played the single player gear2 and r2 and i would say that r2 is better in that and online. the coop in R2 is gold and over 50% of the people playing have mics. both games deserve a 10/10 avg but I enjoyed R2 more. the graphics difference is not noticeable

La Chance3628d ago

Oh let me guess , IGN and GT arent biased wheras all the other sites are biased right?

Danja3628d ago

yeah sure R2 got the score it deserves from all the important sites that actually count and do unbiased reviews..

I still dont see why ppl think they still need to defend R2 it's one of the best games etc...

and ppl need to stop comparing R2 graphics to Gears 2 grahics...2 different art direction...and R2 wasn't made to look realistic...R2 blows Gears out the water technically with everything that's happening all at once on screen...

both are great games lets leave it there.

buy a ps33628d ago (Edited 3628d ago )

you haven't played resistance 2 have you

FadeToBlack3628d ago

Both Resistance 2 and Gears of War 2 are great games.
I am so sick of reading back and forth fanboy ranting.
Give it a rest and enjoy both games for how awesome they are!

Danja3628d ago

Actually I have played R2 dude..finished the Story Mode also...Have you ?

i've also played Gears Co-op over at a friends house and I can say that R2 is a more technical impressive game....thats my opinions ...

BattleAxe3628d ago (Edited 3628d ago )

@ Bladestar

1. I'm not talking about Resistance: Fall of Man, I'm talking about Resistance 2 which is a huge improvement over the first game and is probably in the top 20 best FPS games ever made.

2. I do indeed think that CoD 4 is a far better game then Resistance: Fall of Man, but Resistance:FoM was still good.

3. The media is extremely biased, which is fine because it wont change my mind as to which console is better or what games I like.

@ LaChance

Play the game before you trash talk. I don't think you've played half of the games you pretend to know so much about. I'm a Sony Fanboy but I give props to games that deserve it, even if its on XBOX 360.

I would love to play Gears 2, but unfortunately its the only game on the XBOX that I'm interested in. Combine that with the crappy quality console and I'm not buying it.

The beta is better then a 8/10. The online coop and zombie mode puts it up there with gears and resistance.

joebahrjoebahr3628d ago

bad review!!

PS why did fanboys turn from " ps3 is gonna rule this holiday season and home will be otu in october". to
" reviewers and the media are biased against ps3"?

Spike473628d ago

I guess so. A PS3 "exclusive" kind of rings a bell in the mind of a biased critic, a multiplatform not as all
