    There’s something here for everyone, as it feels like almost three separate games based on what you prefer to play. Sledgehammer Games has become a great storyteller with their (mostly) exciting campaign, solid multiplayer that keeps you hooked as you level up and earn Supply Drops, and a Nazi Zombie mode that’s sure to have you and your friends scratching your heads trying to solve its mysteries. They could have played it safe, but they weren’t happy with the status quo, which is where Headquarters and War spawned from, a great multiplayer addition to the series, and one that I hope stays going forward. It’s time to get the squad back together and get back into some intense World War II action as Call of Duty is indeed back and this year’s entry is pretty much a ‘must play’ for fans of the series, and fans of video games alike.

    The campaign production values are amazing as always, with excellent acting and motion capture, huge set pieces, and a fair bit of variety. And of course, WWII shows serious dedication to multiplayer with the new headquarters social hub, the excellent new war mode, and a gritty co-op Zombies mode. Whether you're interested in campaign or multiplayer, Call of Duty: WWII is the complete package and a must-play first-person shooter this holiday season.

    A welcome return to the origins for Call of Duty, with an immersive campaign and a classic multiplayer. The new Zombi mode is the one that feels more improved and a step forward, while multiplayer could have used a bit more of innovation, but it's still highly enjoyable.

    Call of Duty WWII isn’t a perfect game, but it is a solid one. What we really miss is a graphical upgrade on its engine and a campaign mode with more personality. Feels good to be back at World War II with the great gameplay that the game offers, its multiplayer and the always fun zombie mode.

    Call of Duty: WWII is a game that was much requested by fans and ultimately hits most of its targets. The story mode's focus on in-the-trenches brotherhood falls short of its mark due to introducing a dozen or so characters and only getting a few of them to stand out. However, if you're coming back to the series annually you're probably in it for its other two modes, multiplayer and zombies. In both instances, they innovate in fun ways. At times, it does feel like the whole package benefits from the simple timeline swap. If you gave up on the franchise's small maps and repetitive story structure, WWII doesn't do enough to make you want to come back. It remains true to itself, for better or worse. For anyone who still plays the games with glee every November, Call of Duty: WWII is a better-late-than-never return to the series' roots.

    Call of Duty: WWII is most definitely a more than decent entry to the franchise. The return of boots-on-the-ground gameplay is certainly welcomed and it’s good to see Sledgehammer Games take a little risk and try out some new features.

    This feels like the most wheel-spinning, by-the-numbers Call of Duty they've made thus far.

    After playing multiplayer games and spending hours upon hours on them every day I've come to a realization as I've gotten older and moreAfter playing multiplayer games and spending hours upon hours on them every day I've come to a realization as I've gotten older and more mature as a gamer that playing multiplayer, although fun, doesn't have a sense of accomplishment and really won't get you anywhere. Multiplayer is a never ending cycle of match after match of killing and dying. Don't get me wrong, I still like multiplayer and even play them from time to time. But as I've gotten older and work and other responsibilities have entered my life I can no longer spend hours on hours on a game that doesn't give me anything back besides a kill death ratio or games won and lost or any other myriad of other things on your stat screen. So now I play games for their story, their campaign. Something I can take away and remember and linger in my thoughts for months or even years. I only play Call of duty now for their campaigns. I dabble in the multiplayer from time to time but that is not what I'm reviewing since that is not what I value the most. This has got to be one of the best cod campaigns ever. The story, although could have been directed better, it's core was really well written. The story hits home for me and I appreciate stories of heroism and valor. Heroes who sacrifice themselves for the betterment of others. Graphically, this game looks great. Captures the atmosphere, the grit and grime of the violence of the most deadliest conflict in human history. The resolution could be higher and the HDR could be better but all in all it looks phenomenal. Especially considering that it runs at 60 or a very close 60 is remarkable. This is one of my favorite COD campaigns ever. One of my top 3 for sure. Expand

    The multiplayer is just fine for what it does, All though some of the maps take away from the more serious tones of the time period the game is set in, and watching people getting lootboxes fall from the sky can get very tiresome after a while but it still has the classic CoD gameplay we all come to expect now and the campaign is a fantastic one at that.

    Give this one a chance and who knows, you may be surprised.

El modo Zombies esta entretenido, y es totalmente diferente a los vistos hasta hoy. La historia de la segunda guerra mundial para nada se parece a lo que representa en este juego. Se han burlado de la gente. Metiendo mujeres en la segunda guerra mundial, uniformes inventados, armas fuera de su tiempo y pantallas las cuales jamás hubo batalla alguna. Es un juego lleno de micro transacciones, fomentando la compra de productos ya que te muestra descaradamente lo que le toca al resto de jugadores. Los emblemas nazis "volaron", jamás podrás elegir uniforme aleman. Siendo americano juegas con armas alemanas, no te da opción a elegir. Sigo enamorado el Cod: World at War, un juego que sí cumplía con la historia, escenarios y soldados. pensaba que Activision por fin lo iba a volver a hacer, pero me equivoque. Han creado un juego de "guerra antigua" por llamarlo de alguna manera, para que los "niños rata" sean felices. Creando micro transacciones, matar por matar ya que no matas Nazis, sino alemanes que no han hecho nada; poniendo mujeres que apenas las hubo en los ejércitos alemanes ni americanos, creando las cajas de de premios "traga perras" Lo único que celebro, es que por fin se abandonen los malditos juegos futuristas.

    Bottom line: it's just a bad game.

    I got sick of call of duty after MW2. I grew up with the franchise and had been playing since COD 2.
    Bottom line: it's just a bad game.

    I got sick of call of duty after MW2. I grew up with the franchise and had been playing since COD 2. I've been playing mostly Battlefield since 2013, but when I heard COD was ditching the futuristic and was heading back to WW2 I was interested. But it really is just more of the same with a WW2 skin. I thought modern warfare 2 was too fast, but this is ridiculous. The game feels like a round of speedball with everyone on crack. Waaay too fast. waaaay too reliant on how fast you can get your sights on and pull the trigger than actual teamwork. Waaaay too easy to die and know exactly where your enemy is going after your death. There's things you begin to take for granted when you switch over to a game like battlefield - destructible environments, different classes that actually PLAY differently, vehicles, large maps, more team play... I could go on. The game feels like it caters to hormonal teenage boys.

    This game is very easy to hate. Very easy to laugh at. And for very good reason. I didn't buy the last 6 call of duty games before this and I will never buy another one after. I've learned my lesson.

Also, Activision's grip is VERY apparent: In my two hours of multiplayer time, I swear I saw at least 15 microtransaction pushes. Greedy and hollow. Expand

    This game is very"weird". sometimes its fun, other times you feel like screaming at your TV or monitor.

    CAMPAIGN. The campaign is all
    This game is very"weird". sometimes its fun, other times you feel like screaming at your TV or monitor.

    CAMPAIGN.

    The campaign is all over the place.My favorite mission in this "campaign" is the first mission. if the first mission is the only good mission, thats when you have just **** up big time. I legit forgot the ending, but i dont need to know the ending to know what its gonna be. Its gonna end all like your the best and no one else could have done what you did. the "campaign" feels more like im watching a on rails movie then a actual game. The amount of explosions in the "campaign" felt like i was watching a battle unfold in fallout 4 if they all had fat mans.

    ZOMBIES.

    Zombies is actually really underrated. I mean, i know it do'sent really have anything special about it but if you think about it, neither did nacth dier untoten from WAW, same with verrtuck, shi no numa, and kino der toten. people always say those are the best maps ever, but they only say that because its treyarch. Like the "campaign" theirs a lot of explosions . Im actually okay with it because its made up so i dont give a **** now lets go into the biggest part of the game yet, the reason you bought this ****ing game.

    MULTI--wait i gotta wait for a update? k.
    *1 hour later*
    MULTIPLAYER.

    Multiplayer is really unbalanced. i mean all of these "nerf's" and "buffs" really do nothing. so what if they nerfed the STG or the FG42, those guns are still really overpowered. the maps are all the same in this game, left middle right.The new DLC guns are trash, the gewher 43 is like a m1a1 carbine, the sten is like a **** version of the grease gun, the GPMG is worse then pre-buffed Bren, the Ice Pick needs a little more range, the trench knifve is ok. my favriote map is opetation neptune. and thats it. TA TA, ****
