    I can’t help feel (that word again) that Call of Duty: WWII is a definite improvement in the series, and I can only hope that they will choose to remain in this time period. Now that Sledgehammer Games proved they are up to the task, it’s very likely they will continue with some great releases. The community was not expecting this kind of quality from the franchise, especially after the declining trend of the previous titles, but it’s definitely a nice surprise and worth checking out, especially if you’re a PC gamer.

    As a whole package, Call of Duty: WWII has a little something for everyone to enjoy, but that has been the story of this series for a long time. No, this homecoming is far, far better than the sum of its parts, a true return to form in practically every respect. It feels alien to be looking back on a new Call of Duty release as anything other than enjoyable yet unremarkable triple-A fare, but here we are. Call of Duty: WWII delivers on all fronts: compelling and heartfelt in its storytelling; imposing in its sense of scale and spectacle; and unremittingly addictive in its gunplay.

    Call of Duty WWII embraces the series’ beginnings and tells its story through a gripping, thoughtful campaign, continued excellence with Nazi Zombies mode and an expanded (but still formulaic) online multiplayer experience. Anybody who remembers the good old times they had with the franchise’s earlier titles should eventually take a look, as Call of Duty WWII is a return to form.

    In terms of bringing old-school Call of Duty up to modern standards, Call of Duty: WWII does fairly admirably, but at the same time every end of it feels like something is missing. The campaign is a tour and spectacle of the terror and intensity of the conflict as the Allies fought their way into to the Eagle’s Nest, but the forgoing of nearly all outside perspectives in favor of an all-American campaign feels narrow in comparison to previous COD outings that have tackled this subject matter. Likewise, multiplayer is as tight as ever and War mode is a solid addition that we hope to see built upon in all further Call of Duty content, but the hub feels tacked on. Zombie Mode is still Zombie Mode and fans will find a lot to discover and challenge in the new scenario, but the stark tones might put off the more lighthearted fans of the mode in its previous incarnations. COD: WWII is far from the worst of the series and players will find a wealth of well-crafted moments and design here, but a few too many oddities and omissions keep it from being the best that Call of Duty has ever offered.

    A magnificent, but also a sympathetic, unpretentious return to the roots of the series. Yet the campaign is short-lived, and your next experience depends on how much you enjoy the multiplayer and/or shooting Nazi zombies.

    Shallow story combined with historic inaccuracies and very buggy multiplayer gave us a game that leaves a bitter taste in stark contrast with big expectations. War Mode is a bright spot and is currently the only thing really worth playing, but there’s still hope that the game might improve over time with patches.

    Call of Duty: WWII gives the impression of being prematurely published, and has a plethora of serious flaws. It’s return to the series roots is in setting only, and the game pales in comparison to the classics it draws inspiration from.

I actually really liked the campaign and believe that the story was good (at least the cinematic story telling portion of the story). Only complaint is that the campaign wasn't long enough so it couldn't really develop more of the characters. In the end though, you really get to care about Daniels and Zussman, and understand the effect that war has on people (Pierson). It was very patriotic and promoted self-sacrifice and responsibility, which the world needs a lot more of. I absolutely HATE SJW stuff, and so glad that this game doesn't have any of that. It was true to history in the sense that yes, there were women in the SOE and they mainly did covert missions, and that blacks were not front line combatants, but were pushed to engineer and support/artillery roles; however, there were all black fighting units in the Ardennes and having Howard there was pretty cool. Having diversity for diversity sake is the stupidest thing ever, but following history and showing elements of what actually could have happened takes great writing that doesn't try to push an agenda.

    The campaign can be improved with the following 1) Get rid of quick time events (these things suck). 2) Stop yelling at the player to move on or forward to the next waypoint. Say it once then shut up. Otherwise, enforce a consequence to not following the orders. 3) Make it longer. 4) Get rid of multiplayer... so you can focus on making a longer campaign. 4) Add RPG elements... so you can take over writing stories and action sequences for games like Fallout because Bethesda sure as heck won't be doing anything good anymore.

    I would like the price to be cut to about $35 or so for just the campaign portion --I got a sale so it worked out for me. However, if you pack more stuff into the single player, I would gladly pay $60 or so for it.

And that's all the pro's we got for 60$. Gameplay haven't changed for the past 10 years at all. It still welcomes us with 5x5 meter maps and 12 players at once. Wooden physics, crappy animation, tons of kids with cheats, lots of microtransactions - here is what you'll get, when you buy this. As for single-player - it still sucks. Dumb plot, boring characters, faceless locations - it's the top of the iceberg. Don't waste your dollars and nerves. Expand

    Well this is pretty standard practice for a CoD game.... devs and publisher lie through their teeth with the standard generic hyped groceryWell this is pretty standard practice for a CoD game.... devs and publisher lie through their teeth with the standard generic hyped grocery list of "features" and don't bother to follow through, they know the kids will buy it regardless. The devs could've added a "Liberate Bert and Ernie on Sesame Street" level and the gamers would believe it to be historically accurate, heck it would be as believable as the rest of this mess. An utter disgrace to those who served.
    Yes CoD is "going back to its roots" indeed....cut, paste, rinse, repeat and caaaaash in. The saddest aspect isnt the less than mediocre game itself, it's that the same people who feel betrayed by this abysmal trash will still get in line next year for the next enchanting installment with cash in hand.
    Weak.

    Calling this a subpar experience is an understatement. This title does not deliver on any fronts (pun intended):

    SP: 0/10 (as expected with all CODs)
    MP: 1/10 (worse than the usual 4-5/10 in the past)

    This does not offer anything remotely enjoying in terms of GP, immersion or realism. This is a blatant racist game and an insult to all the nations who were involved in ww2.

    Avoid this like the cancer it is.

    No dedicated servers? no physics? a 4 years old graphic engine? waiting to for Battlefield WWII to play a propper WWII game. ThisNo dedicated servers? no physics? a 4 years old graphic engine? waiting to for Battlefield WWII to play a propper WWII game. This microtransactions and small boxes economy engine is going out of hand. If you pay so much for a game should be included with everything. And if the make it a pay to win with no dedicated servers, with no physics, sell it at least at 15 £. Expand
