    Call of Duty: WW2 is the best Call of Duty in years. Bombastic story, killer grounded multiplayer, and a dark and scary Zombies make up one of the most complete and enjoyable Call of Duty experiences in years.

    A spectacular release that has a strong chance of becoming a fan favourite as one of the best Call of Duty releases in years.

    If you buy Call of Duty games every year, there's no reason to pass on WWII, which is a quality installment in the long-running franchise. The single-player portion was surprisingly good, but with the exception of the new War mode, the multiplayer was not to my liking. The developers wanted the multiplayer to be more rapidly paced, but it lacks balance because the Airborne division is incredibly overpowered. The Nazi Zombies mode is fun, as always. WWII is a good break from the science-fiction mechanics of the past few releases in the series, and it's a worthwhile purchase since you're bound to sink dozens of hours into it.

    Many people thought that changing the setting for this Call of Duty: WWII would be great. Maybe returning to historical events is not a bad notion and the new COD is an always slick shooter, but the game is also short on new ideas.

    There's no denying that in the moment, the single-player campaign, the multiplayer modes, and Zombies mode are satisfying and create a well-tuned shooter experiences defined by super-high production values and polish. Take a longer view, however, and you're likely to feel more than a little ennui over the setting and a bit let down by a game that feels like a corporate decision rather than a passion project. World War II defined the course of nations and the fate of millions. Call of Duty: WWII misses the opportunity to find its own, unique or emotionally compelling journey through the conflict. It is a mechanically solid, visually impressive shooter bolted to a story we've seen too many times.

    Call of Duty: WW2 is refreshing thanks to its slower pace, historical weaponry and thematic divisions. However, this game does not really reinvent the wheel, especially when it comes to the single-player.

    The game aims to tell a story of the brotherhood between soldiers, but it’s ill-served by undeveloped characterizations.
