Call of Duty 5 World at War Review
Call of Duty – World at War 5 is a first person shooter video game and is one of the most popular World War II theme video games. The game has been published by Activision and developed by Treyarch for all the different versions of Windows, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, etc.
This game is fifth in a series that was created by the same company. Nevertheless, this latest product has fallen short of the users’ anticipations, in terms introducing newer features. This game takes place during World War II.
The former edition of this game took place in the contemporary era, while this edition returns to the world war setting.
For about $56, you can purchase Call of Duty Word At War from Amazon. The game focuses its attention solely on the Pacific Theatre and the Eastern Front of the world war, at least in the Windows version.
The story line is as follows. The focal point is solely on the first battles fought during the World War II. Later stages are on the Pacific and Eastern Europe. The USSR, the U.S. and the Empire of Japan are among them. The game also includes Nazi Germany.
The whole game storyline is narrated in the first person perspective by a Red Army warrior and a different Marine Raider. Most of the story is contingent on the battles at Stalingrad, Seelow Heights, Okinawa, Makin Island, Peleliu, and Berlin.
World at War 5 also has a multi-player portion where multiple layers of games modes are involved.
These modes help the player to unlock any additional weapon that he might lay his hands on for better fighting and protection. This adds to the player’s rank and collection of awards.
This strategy in the video game of gathering excess awards and weaponry was originally introduced in the game Call for Duty – War of the Worlds part 4.
In the new version, Call of Duty: World at War 5, a maximum of four online players and two offline players can be accommodated in the console version. (Play on Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3).
The Call of Duty: World at War 5 is actually one of the best selling games in the UK since its release in November of 2008. In the UK alone, it has sold over one million copies and is second in rank worldwide. I believe it is also in the top 10 best selling video games on eBay US as well.
World at War 5 was criticized by a few who were unsatisfied with the game going back to the world war theme since many gamers prefer contemporary present war scenarios.
Nevertheless, the acute portrayal of the dark and gritty sides of the war was highly praised. The technique of jumping years in the plot and the introduction of the co-operative mode were also very highly praised.
