Call Of Duty: World at War - My Take

So I got the Beta COD5 Multiplayer e-mail last night for reserving the game at Gamestop. After the download (880mb) I sat down having no idea what exactly to expect.

My Review thus far:

It's different.....I play COD4 nearly everyday, consider myself one of the top 200k and climbing players in the world, and "It's different" is the best sum of what I felt.

GameTypes:
There is Domination, renamed as "WAR" with the difference there is only one flag up for grabs at a time. Think Shipment mayhem but still I liked it. The rest of the gametypes are the same, capture the flag (aka Sabotage), Team Deathmatch, Hardcore, Search and Destroy

Maps:
There is 3 maps to play, one circle stadium cluster fuck that I didnt like cause there is a freaking tank either team can get in and it gets completely one sided after that. There is a night map and I caught myself 3 times trying to turn on my Night Vision goggles i dont have since its WW2 So that was an adjustment being use to having that no available in night maps.

Guns:
Havent really gotten into the guns yet. I mean I have used them, but I can't really get a feel for them yet. Sniper seems harder to shoot, iron sights is tough, being a ninja in this game appears to be not as easy thus far.

Perks:
So far all the same, but u also have a vehicle perk if u get in a vehicle, Ive only seen a tank in the Beta so doesnt appear to be a useful perk until real launch.

MY 3 WTF's of the GAME THUS FAR:
1.Call In The Dogs:
This is my WTF of the game mostly. 3 kill streak gets UAV (a recon plane flys overhead) 5 kill streak is airstike (which sounds annoying when it drops) and 7 kill streak is a bunch of dogs come into map and chase players and bite/kill them. They are easy to kill as opposing team and rather annoying. I miss the chopper

2. Feel of game:
Again its different, I don't like the way peoples names show/score shows/kills show, I definelty dont like the layout of the screen when you are choosing perks/classes setup.

3. Sounds:
Though the sounds are more WW2ish the voice over is annoying as FUCK!! Keifer Sutherland voices the American commands and he sounds like Jack Baur yelling at you constantly "The enemy is taking our flag"!! I want to punch his face and tell him STFU Jack Bauer!!

Anyways, sorry long rewview/rant, wanted to give you guys idea of the game, I still overall will play it and will hope the actual game is a better.

Hit me up on XBOX Live if your on beta or COD4 - LiLNewc

yea I have been playing it alittle. I just have played COD4 so much and like it I really didn;t want it to changed. I figured just add more maps, alittle better graphics, more perks and maybe a few other things and call it COD5 But I knew that was going to happen.

Same thing happen with Halo2 vs Halo3

oh i sent u a friends invite

played it and loved it. dorked out for about 5 hours on it only playing the 3 demo levels. sticky bombs, moltov cocktails and mustard gas are cool. artillery strikes and pack of dogs is cool to take place of air strike and helicopter. i see you can get a flame thrower to. 2 player tank is awesome as well. my friends got upto level 24 thus far. must buy in my opinion.

I am still under the firm stance that they will never be able to beat COD2. That was the best..........

Nice summary. Did you like the people span killing and the people finding the clitches to get under the maps? I enjoyed that very much.

span killing will always be there on just about every game. And I think it was only one map that they could get under. But I'm sure they will fix that before selling the game. Heck we had a buddy go down there and just sit and wait. He would put a bouncing betty right where they fall. He got them everytime. Even got 2 people with one betty that was trying to get down there.

I have started to notice that the knifing has gone to shit, and if you wear headphones you can notice that the sound isn't near as good as far as perspective goes.

well, i picked up the new call of duty. i got home and was so excited to play it. i played it for a little while and realized i like cod4 more. this new one i guess is made by a different company and it just looks to much like a cartoon to me. its not as realistic as cod4. plus i really dont like the tanks.

Got the game yesterday, the game is pretty fun. I like the fact you can do a online private coop campaign and also a zombie match. The only grip I have is the guns sounds weak as shit, no boom to them and the bazookas sounds like its shooting out water and you can't see any trails from the missile you just shot out. I do like the exploding body parts when you blow a player up or shotgun there legs off. All in all not a bad game

You can pass me now, sold the bike =(

I got it the 10th and I have already beat it. I played the co-op campaign mode and wasn't that impressed. I thought it kinda sucked and the only way you get XP points was off of challenges. I think the campaign mode was pretty bad ass but didn't take hardly anytime to beat. It should have been longer. At least as long as Gears of War. I enjoy the multiplayer in spite of the WWII settings and guns. I think compared to COD4 the graphics are weak, the sound effects are downright lame, and when people run? WTF. They look like a blind person with down syndrome trying to run. I am already ranked 30 I believe with just a few hours in the game. All in all I will continue to play it purely on the fact that after playing COD4 for a year I am a bit burned out on the levels and guns. But I do still play it. All and all 7 of 10.

I am totally torn on this one.

On one hand, I love WWII stuff. The era interests the hell out of me.

That said, I'm so spoiled by COD4. The weapons mostly. I think it'll be hard to go back in time to a Thompson or M1 or whatever.

I think I'm just going to play COD4 for the next year, lol. There'll probably always be people online to play with on that one.

I love WWII stuff, but i'm tired of WW2 shooter games. They're really reached the limits of what they can do with it.

I think they need to reach a happy medium somewhere with current and futuristic ideas.

BF: 2142 comes to mind.

So there was only 1 person left on the other team for alittle bit and we called in the dogs. Now that shit was funny that guys didn't know what hit him when 4-5 dogs attacked him
