      A dark portret of World War II

      Call of Duty: World at War is the 5th installment in the Call of Duty series and the 4th game of the series which takes place during World War II. It has been developed by Treyarch and published by Activision for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3, Wii, and Xbox 360.


      The campaign simulates battles from the Pacific and from Europe. The experience is different from the older games. World at War introduces a more realistic war experience. The high detailed graphics, the loud sound effects and your companions (controlled by the AI or co-op) give an immerse experience. Although sometimes the game might seem a little violent, it is only to contribute to the war atmosphere. Weapons from World War II can be found, such as:the Thompson submachine gun, the Mosin-Nagant rifle, and the Panzerschreck anti-tank rocket launcher. Weapons fire and look quite a lot like the real things. Fighting alongside the other soldiers improves the realism of the game. Although everything is close to reality, there is a small downside, when injured the screen turns red, you do not have a lifebar and if you are severely wounded you can easilly hide in a corner and refill your lifepoints.

      The player plays with the Russian side fighting against the Germans and with the USA fighting against the Japanese. A splash of originality is added by the Japanese suicide soldiers which sometimes run towards you screaming "BANZAI" which means attack. If you don't act fast enough you can get easily killed by these soldiers. There are six main story missions which take you to different locations : from Makin Island , to Stalingrad, from the Battle of Seelow Heights, to the battle of Okinawa. This is trully a World experience filled with thick jungles and ruined buildings.

      The game portrays the gritty, dark side of war with stunning graphics and audio effects.
