Cranky Gamers Reviews: Call of Duty: World at War

CG writes: "After playing the first few moments of World at War there's a feeling that you've been smacked in the face by its approach to violence.

last night. The violence wasn't that bad say...compared to "saving private ryan". There's a reason it has an M rating. I'd say it was a pretty good WWII game and they did a good job of trying to be like COD:MW.
If you get hit with machine gun rounds at close range you WILL get your joints blown off. No one remembers Hank's Dad from "king of the hill" ? "Damn Tojo's shot off my knee caps"

***spoiler alert***
That guy chernov at the end...getting hit by the flamethrower...I kinda felt bad for him.

The only thing that TRULY pissed me off was the poor squad AI. I lost count of how many times I died because my squad mates were in the "stand down" mode and there was a Tojo/Nazi right in front of them just waiting to serve me lunch with the end of a barrel. VERY frustrating.
