GamingTrend: "There are going to be detractors who say that World at War is simply a WWII mod for CoD4. It's a valid point, if a bit short-sighted. There's no question that Treyarch borrowed heavily from what worked in CoD4. The game is definitely an incremental step forward for the series, and not a revolutionary one. However, my job is to judge the game as an individual title, and in that respect Call of Duty: World at War is another outstanding addition to the series."
