This game was the pivotal turning point of the entire call of duty franchise and it is easy to see why. With up to par graphical content and an enticing and well played out campaign, this games single player feature took fans hearts and is considered as one of the best campaigns of the franchise. It also turned people's heads due to its new feature of the zombies mode which fans have come to love.
all of Duty 5: World War was a game that was significantly hyped up, particularly with the introduction of the new 'Nazi Zombies' game-mode, to be a massive hit; and so it proved. With millions of sales world wide, thanks to the obvious selling point that was the Nazi Zombies game-mode, this game was hugely successful and stood creators Activision and Treyarch in great stead for the future.
This game was the most dynamic and creative Call of Duty game in the franchise at the time. Released in 2008, it was host to the fantastic Zombies game-mode, which was, and still is, massively popular amongst fans. Aswell as the Zombies game-mode, the Multiplayer gameplay featured new guns, maps and killstreaks for the fans to play with. Maps were more dynamic than ever, and warfare was more realistic than ever.
However, Call of Duty 5: World War had many downsides. There were only 4 Zombies maps in total, therefore it got repetitive and in most cases very boring quickly. The multiplayer often had serious connection-based issues, causing players to experience lag and constantly get kicked out of games. There was also a gun on Multiplayer, called the MP40, that was far superior to anything else, leaving gun on gun gameplay a little stale, as it constricted the varying customised class, the COD 4: Modern Warfare had implemented so well.
Overall, though this game had many flaws, it had some great features, such as Zombies, that made it completely different to any game on the market; that is why is was such a success.
All of the WW2 set games are good because they help retell a story many actually aren't aware of. Everyone knows about WW2 but a lot of people, especially younger gamer's don't take the time to think about the events and with this game, I think it offers an emotional experience.
For most gamer's this is another game but to me, it does help retell an important story and the horrors soldiers endured. Of course, when this game first came out on the PS2, I thought it was good and I actually thought on the PS3, the game was new and different from the other version. I was wrong but still, the game was good.
The graphics are sharp and very authentic feeling and the story mode is a good option to start off with. The story is long though it doesn't drag out in any way shape or form. The plot moves at the right pace and you get to experience the war through the soldier's eyes nicely.
However, I thought the game's controls were simple and there are a few good weapons to choose from too. Though, the arrange of WW2 weapons are good because the game sticks to the authentic weapons available at that time and the game doesn't embellish either.
