    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.

    After having played a good portion of the campaign I came here expecting glowing reviews! WTF?!
    The campaign doesn't quite live up to World at War but it still definitely holds its own in the set pieces. The stealth isn't overdone like in Battlefield and even though the premise of it even existing in a World War game it's a welcome change of pace and doesn't overstay its welcome (like in Battlefield where every other mission is a stealth one!!!)
    Yeah I guess you could say the guns don't sound that great and there's not a whole lot of variety but they still feel good (if a bit weak though... except the Kark98 that sh*t is fu**ing amazing!).
    The characters are a hit and miss for me... Pierson is kinda bland and the writing's a bit too cliched but Zussman is still pretty entertaining but I'd say characters are a weak point of the game (so far at least!).
    I also didn't care for the new medkit system at all! I think it's too distracting and breaks the immersion (one reason would be there's no option to for example hold down the medkit button and use 2 at the same time so it's a long wait to get back to the action)
    But overall the best things about the campaign are the set pieces and the over the top in-between segments that are genuinely exciting.
    In the end I'd say it's no World at War... but it comes damn close to it... if only it made us care more about the characters and had better writing.

    +Some of the best PC visuals yet
    +Incredible cinematic sequences/facial capture
    +Classic COD gameplay feel
    +Runs great, will get most out of hardware with the right settings
    +New squad mechanics allow you to feel more of a bond with the characters
    -sound effects are not realistic, pistol and explosions cut and pasted from advanced warfare
    -No setting to remove / reduce HUD (accept in ¬ console)
    -Same old COD different wrapping paper :(
    -squad mechanics sometimes feel like a step back slowing down the gameplay
    -overwhelmingly linear for a 2017 singleplayer experience
    -game pacing is just dialled to constant shooteybang with barely a rest for the senses and so missions that cover months of story are played over the few hours of gameplay. What would it have been like to watch your friends heal up in the medical camp? Or go through training bootcamp? Or wave goodbye to your loved ones as you step on the boat to go to war with all that hope? Not knowing the hell that awaited you... Feels like a missed opportunity to step aside from the formula.

    Another rip-roaring COD for 3rd nov release date on the nose.... Its activisions 'big mac with fries' and it really is the same every time. Don't get me wrong I love a big mac and fries but with DICE and many others breaking free of their older formulas and mixing things up gourmet stylee for gaming in 2017, I was really hoping Sledgehammer would bring something more unique than 'slightly more pepper'. Like a whole new recipe of different. But activision clearly chose to cash in. So for more classic COD with a fancy new-old WW2skin I give 6/10. I love playing this game but expected/hoped for more evolution. (singleplayer campaign review)

I never play and care about multiplayer. I mostly play COD games for the SP.

    I am going to make this as short as the game itself!
    PROS.
    -Great graphics.
    -Fantastic atmosphere it like being in the battlefield it's alive.
    -Medical kits.
    -Voice acting.
    -PC Optimized.
    CONS.
    -The Singelplayer is like 4h max.
    -It mostly car chase and holding possession and shooting. (Like a mobile game)
    -Too much of a cinematic play.
    -Only 6 chapters that feels rushed and very short.
    -Nothing special about the story.

    I still think infinite Warfare the worst COD still and this takes the second place. If only it was longer and had gameplay like the old ones this would been amazing. Activiton should find itself another series or just quit gaming! Its embarrassing really.

All guns in the game sounds like airsoft guns, the violence is so tuned down it makes me wonder why is it 18+?Because of zombies or killing?With violence tuned down this low it should atleast 16+ unless we are still living in 90s and everything with a smallest drop of blood makes the game 18+....
    Don't even get me started on the upcoming Black Ops 4 this is pure embarrassment,jumping on a bandwagon of one weakest genre's of video games battle royal. If that won't teach them something then there is no hope for either series nor FPS genre as a whole.

Since it cannot make up for the fact that I cannot connectI wrote a positive review of the single player experiance but had to take it down.. Since it cannot make up for the fact that I cannot connect to the multiplayer at all.. a lot of players are getting burned by this error 102526 and several forum posts have been made on the topic. I even waited for a patch to fix this issue but after waiting a long time for answers none has been given by the game developer and nothing came of the first patch to the game. Since I can't play half of my 60 dollar experience.. I am forced to say: Do not buy this game since you risk experiencing the same issues as I have. Expand
