IGN AU: Call of Duty: World at War Review

CoD: WaW is a very hard game to rate. Play it on your own, and it's a bit of a dog. A pretty, well-trained dog, but a rather boring and lazy dog nonetheless, that needs to be introduced to the vet's special sleepy needle. Play it with your mates though, and it becomes a great example of why co-op is undoubtedly the Way of the Future. Its repetitive and lazy single player sins vanish beneath the screams of your mates' laughter across your Xbox Live headset.

The multiplayer might be a totally unoriginal rip-off of everything that CoD 4's online game did so well, but why wouldn't it when the original is so brilliant? Is it better than CoD 4? Whether you play it with friends or not will determine the answer to that question. Now, if only it had the amazing singleplayer of CoD 4 combined with the strong co-op of CoD: WaW. Who wants to place a wager that this is exactly what we'll see with the next officially numbered Call of Duty?
