    Basic is an understatement

    To think that the space age COD has certainly almost out stayed its welcome, and old school was well over due. How wrong I was. Battlefield took full advantage of this a year ago and nailed it with the game play action, along with slight lack luster weapons. However COD tried to resurrect the glory days and honestly I'm really disappointed. It seems overly basic with the maps, game play action, a much faster paced shoot-out that almost certainly feels like hardcore deathmatch with incredible camping spots-- it's so easy to get a kill or be killed in a 10 second span. The maps are no where near what I expected, very simplistic, tons of corner camp locations, relatively small which is pretty typical in COD, and the main menu is somewhat unorthodox. As far as zombies.... well, Zombies are a lot easier to kill then what we've been accustomed to dealing with. The mystery box is a bit difficult to spot, and having not spent enough time to say if pack-a-punch still exists. The juggernaut and all other perks have taken on new names and new looks, along with a couple additional perks such as melee damage upgrade. Hey, remember when we could board up windows? Well, say bye-bye cause from what what I've seen it doesn't exist anymore, at least when I attempted, it didn't even pop up. I'm very disappointed with the franchise, having already thought last years Infinite Warfare might have regressed the franchise. However, Infinite continued to grow, make changes, and add upgrades to enhance the modern gameplay. But seeing that we have gone waaayyy back in time, unless COD plans to put a modern day twist into old school I don't see how this years copy will get any better. As I said last year, it unfortunately may be another downward trend in COD, that may have lost its touch a bit. Sadly this time around it may have to concede to the rising Battlefield. Hope this helps, enjoy! GAME ON!

    Before I start my review warning to those who do not have internet this game requires a one-day patch to even play the campaign which is stupid, not everybody has internet not everybody play Call of Duty for its online multiplayer, and yes it's a negative and it was the ultimate reason the review not higher, let's get started on the review I am a fan of Call of Duty I've been a fan since the original PC release and I've been a fan ever since, Call of Duty World War II I believe is the right step in the right direction the whole futuristic shooter thing was making Call of Duty lose its identity, I enjoyed the campaign it goes back to Classic Call of Duty with its Health System it adds of bit realism the graphics is beautiful the shooting is intense and I did enjoy the story of A Band of Brothers the online multiplayer returns Call of Duty back to its boots on the ground combat which in my opinion is in the right direction that is as far as it goes with the positive, the negative, a buggy server in the online multiplayer and a stupid one day patch in order for you to even play this game, Activision Sledgehammer Games I don't know what you were thinking.

    Call of Duty returns to its World War 2 roots! The campaign is fun and has some awesome moments! It is one of my favorite Call of Duty campaigns in the last few years and is the closest a CoD game has come to a Band of Brothers experience. The multiplayer on the other hand, is not great. This is the buggiest and poorest designed Call of Duty multiplayer I have ever played! After several months now they still haven't fixed some of the really annoying bugs and glitches! The spawns in the game are also really bad where I find myself getting spawned killed in many games. The maps, while conceptually they are cool, are poorly designed. The change from perks/wild cards to basic training in your loadout feels rather limited compared to past CoDs but it brings a nice balance to loadouts in this installment. Finally, the best part of the game, the weapons! It hasn't felt this good to fire a gun in CoD in a long time! All the weapons are fairly balanced with each one feeling unique enough from the rest that choosing the right one for you isn't as simple as looking at the stats. Overall I had fun with this game apart from all the bugs and weak multiplayer. If you love CoD campaigns I would recommend you check this out, especially if you have 4K capabilities because this game is gorgeous! If you are more of a CoD multiplayer type then I wouldn't recommend this game to you but if you love the WW2 setting it may be worth a shot.

    This could have been a fantastic game but it reeks of being rushed too quickly for the holidays. There are countless game breaking bugs that just aren’t acceptable for a franchise as big as call of duty. Hit detection is abysmal first and formost. Not much more to say about that...Also, there seems to be a clear distinction of when the game favors you or when it favors the enemy. Let me explain. In many games it’s obvious to me that I see someone before they see me. It almost feels too easy to get the kill. Then there are games where you never even see who shot you. The inconsistency is what kills it for me. I won’t pretend to understand lag comp or it’s effect on this game but I will say this. The game appears to favor those who are lagging. Most games, the top spots are reserved for those with one or two bar connections. It becomes impossible to shoot someone who is sliding all over the map. There needs to be a minimum connection speed required to play these types of games. Campaign is alright. Nothing memorable but it was fun to play through none the less. Zombies needs more attention from the developers. Could be great but with 2 maps it falls short. Would love to see this part of the game grow. Overall I gave COD: WW2 three stars because while I hate it, I also can’t stop playing it. It’s like I’m a glutton for punishment and cod is dishing it out time and time again.

    For the game itself...The graphics look great in the beginning and seem to become a bit more cartoonish than what they showed in the trailers. Definitely a lot of inserting female characters for the sake of equality (or pandering to the social climate). Some of the levels feel extremely isolating like the tank level. I feel like they should have told the whole story through one characters perspective and a shorter timespan as it seems to jump around too much for my taste. Brothers in arms is a great example of flow to a WW2 game. I like single player games to get immersed in the environment, so I didn't play much of the multiplayer. Ultimately I think they spread their resources around too much with multiplayer/zombies and the single player suffered. The sounds are great. Enemy animations are great. Im glad there are lots of troops running around to give you a sense scale but for some reason (I think the graphics) the maps can feel pretty narrow and lifeless. I hate to say it (as I enjoy the call of duty campaigns much more) but the graphics in battlefield 1 just felt much less cartoony and made landscapes feel larger. This game needed more dark grittiness like world at war. Having said all of this it is the best call of duty campaign since modern warfare 2. Just wish more time was focused on a very tight single player experience.

    Yes, the game is broken and who knows if they are trying to fix all of the bugs. I regret making this purchased on PSN, the game has potential but its full of bugs. Some examples that I am always facing is how the bounty/challenges don't register your progress or it doesn't count an example will be "get 10 kills with a shotgun" and when you had made more than 10 kills you will only have about 2-3 kills register on the challenge. in the first days, the game was released the audio will constantly cut off but I haven't had this issue anymore only once a while but had heard other players complaining about it than before. A recent issue that encounter was when I was playing with friends when we finish a match and return to Headquarters I will get a black screen and wont be able to do a single thing until the leader of the party starts a new match or i quit the game. So, for now, I would wait until all these issues are fix or the game is cheap which I doubt it will happen anytime soon.

    Poor man's version of BF1. Don't waste your money

    If I had to pick between this game or battlefield 1 revolution. Without a doubt I would pick battlefield 1 revolution. That game is truly a masterpiece and shouldn't be missed out on by anyone that loves FPS. No, I'm not a fanboy. but I own it, so I have something to compare it to. My initial thoughts of the game after playing the beta. I still feel like I'm playing the beta. The navigation through the menu is terrible and confusing. The graphics look very outdated. Sound effects from firing guns sound cheap and weak. The guy voice over is annoying. If you can get into a multiplayer team death match it's very boring and only goes up to 75 points. There's no music or nothing going on, so you don't feel that excited when you get into a match. The game tries to copy some of the elements from Battlefield 1 like operation, except it's called war which is like attack and defend certain sections of a map, but fails miserably at it. Also it copied battle packs that you can earn, and currency you can also earn to unlock different things. Zombie mode is fun but I don't think it's worth the price to justify getting the game. I haven't played the campaign yet, but I heard it was fun. I know people won't like what I have to say about this game, but read the reviews from other sites like amazon etc.

    Great graphics and animation but missions and maps aren’t that exciting. Like so many first person shooting games it’s just a drill in finding more ammo, reviving your health, and shooting as many things as you can. The aerial mission held a lot of promise but the aircraft handling was either intentionally limiting or just poorly designed. I tell myself the designers wanted to limit the maneuverability of the aircraft to match the real thing yet realism is one of those things I think any first person shooter game lacks especially considering weapons manipulation like reloading and rapid fire. At any rate, my point is the aerial play level of protecting the bombers would have been more enjoyable if the aircraft didn’t maneuver like 18 wheeler tractor trailers with wings. Other than that it was again your usual first person shooter experience. There are obviously differences in how your health revives, sighting in your sniper rifle scopes, and all that but overall nothing revolutionary coming from this one.

    The single player campaign is an excuse to have a story. By that I mean they forgot to add gameplay in. It's all pretty graphics and cutscenes and very little gameplay. You run from one location to the next with very little sense of where you are in the world because the levels are so small. You don't feel immersed because the levels aren't large enough, and it feels more like an arena shooter broken up by cutscenes in between each section. Past Call of Duty titles were much better, especially the Infinity Ward developed ones. The AI is pretty much non-existent as well. They fall back when you overrun their position, but that's it. They don't flank you. This is a far cry from the original Call of Duty and Call of Duty 2, where the levels were of decent size, and the AI wasn't braindead. Funny how far we've "come". I know I sound like a gamer stuck in the past, but the campaign is terrible. Does MP fare any better? It's alright. Ghosts' Invasion mode and Infinite Warfare's zombies mode had me hooked, but WW2's zombie mode did not. I did enjoy my time in WW2's War mode, however. You could do a lot better than CoD: WW2 as far as shooters go.

    Return to form for Call Of Duty

    I'm a sucker for Call of Duty games because they are typically fun and easy to pick up and play. Modern Warfare really defined the series as a premier shooter, but I haven't been impressed with repetitive sequels. Sure, every iteration has added some new features to try and stave off staleness, but the setting and atmosphere is first and foremost important to me. Returning to WWII is a good choice. The story mode is compelling and entertaining, and quite graphic. Even in multiplayer, every kill with the flamethrower or incendiary shells caused the character to scream in agonizing pain and slowly drop to the ground. It's impressive in a disturbing way that keeps the intensity of war always present. I don't care for loot crates, but they are in no way required and you can earn them regularly without needing to pay for them, which is currently available at the moment anyway. The zombie mode is quite similar to other games, but the atmosphere is creepier. If you have been turned away from the series for a while now, I recommend at least renting the game at Redbox to see if you might become hooked like I did playing the beta.

    Every year its the same thing with every Call of Duty. I decided to get this game since it decided to go back to old school and I was excited about that. It's just more of the same as the past couple of Call of Duty games. Buggy server and connection issues, always getting disconnected from party members, infinite black screen, spotty hit markers even with my PS4 hardwired to the internet. These issues aren't too bad and can eventually be fixed over time as they have done in the past but it's still annoying to see that they rushed the development of the game. My main issue is with their multiplayer maps or lack-thereof. At launch, there are only 9-10 different maps plus another 3 in War mode. So after an hour or so of playing online, it seems like you've played the same map 1 too many times. Of course the way they remedy this is with good ole DLCs. Making you pay more for what should have already been included.

    I've been playing BF1 for over a year now and was really looking forward to play COD WWII. Right out of the box I had to wait and wait for the game to upgrade. After it was done, the interface had to upgrade too so had to wait a bit more. Now it upgrades/resets every time a start the game. Anyway, graphics are ok (I prefer BF1's), interface/menu selections are a bit clumsy (maybe I played BF1 too much) and action/character movement is also ok. Weapon choices when you start are pretty slim (which is common these days) and if you happen to fall in a game where players are already ranked higher... don't waste your time. I noticed that others don't and quite often I find myself in a 2 soldier squad fighting 6 on the other side. Ranked games are not well balanced either. For my first classification stage, played 2 games where it was 2x6. It also bothers me the small number of players in deathmatch. Being now used to BF1 where you play 10x10, 6x6 seems too low. I will play a bit more as I just started but I see myself going back to BF1.

    I wished that call of duty would bring back the old gameplay that made the franchise so fun and poplar during the modern warfare 1 & 2 and call of duty world at war era. What we have when Activision dished out COD: WWII is a stripped down version of what call of duty world at war was. You have less guns to choose from, similar map design for almost all the maps, less customization options (a little bit understandable given the time period of the game), and the infuriating loot box/crate system that doesn't seem to make sense where it's a bunch of repeats of the same thing (emotes and weapon handles look the same). The only save and grace (if at all) is the zombies mode of the game. The zombies mode had evolved greatly since world at war and call of duty black ops one where there is now a sort of storyline for you to follow as well as the level of complexity of interacting with the environment to progress the levels. Other than this, it's still your same old call of duty. Nothing has changed.

    I think with every year, hating on COD has become the "cool" thing to do. Scathing criticism with unrealistic expectations and preformed judgements will no doubt alter your experience. For me, the game is simply fun. The campaign is a blast as is the online multiplayer. On a whim I opted to swing by my local Best Buy (the friendliest people work here and I'm lucky to have them as my store) and bought the game at full price; this is something that I rarely do. And, as you might expect, I had a certain level of expectation for $60+. Well, my expectations were met. I absolutely enjoy playing the game and am fully immersed in the campaign; playing it on Veteran is definitely adding hours to the longevity. I recommend it to those of us who remember what it was like to see COD2 on the Xbox 360 debut. I still remember walking into a Best Buy back then and seeing 20 people crowded around the demo station...something you don't see nowadays. COD WWII brings those memories back.

    The Call of Duty needed

    This WWII Call of Duty is definitely needed especially after all the Call of Duty's with jet packs and players jumping 500 ft in the air. The approach this game takes with the boots on the ground is the COD I loved since Modern Warfare 4. The new care packages and classes take some getting used too, but overall I like what they have done. Double XP weekend is one of the best also. The weapons aren't the best, most people may not like the bouncing betty's and older weapons. But overall, I think they redeemed themselves and did just enough to put the franchise back in customers minds. It was beginning to get a bit stale the last few years from Ghosts, Advance Warfare, etc. I finally can get back to real combat. The maps could be better though. Not a fan of the maps, but I also don't buy the DLC map packs. This is the best COD in a long time IMO.

    COD WWI brings the franchise back with the boots on the ground combat and WWII era; unfortunately...it is not the best entry. The graphics and audio is great, but the main campaign is lacking anything new (too much cliche scenes done before in other games). The multiplayer is the reason everyone buys COD, but it is very buggy with server problems, inconsistent hit boxes, skill based match making score streaks-as tough they are to get-are very weak/useless, and the maps are not that great either. Sledgehammer has added a new game mode called war (something similar to battlefield 1's operations). The game had potential to be a hit, but the constant bugs and lack of advancement in the FPS genre made it a game where veteran COD gamers have abandoned the game for previous COD titles-or like myself- moved on to a more fun and polished game.

    The intro was great...and then the game itself wouldn't work. are the servers are still broken? then when it started working...there is NO HARDCORE KILL CONFIRMED. Why? is it just unfinished like infinite warfare was? they finally added hc kc to infinite warfare like a month after it was out. same with this game? i dont get why the game cant be completely prepared by its release date. it's like going to a movie, and half-way through they're like "oh sorry, we didn't finish all of the scenes yet. please watch the rest next month after we've edited." haha what is the point in releasing a game that's still being worked on. Also, in WW2, teamkills count toward your death. so if you have a K/D of 15-1, and a teammate kills you, you're now 15-2, and so on. super annoying when u're doing good and actually care about ur score.

    The Beta had better servers/Hit scan than release

    Picked up the game on the midnight release, obvious download time which was fine. The next morning actually getting to sit down and play this game I realized a couple things. 1.) The online servers are below average, 100% of the time even still today leaving a match after its done and load-up time takes longer than a Nier : Automata cutscene. Literally. 2.) Idk what it is but the guns hit scan is funny now. Way way way less accurate than the beta where at least the bullets shoot crisp because I know this game isn't battlefield and has bullet drop, which it doesn't. I'd return it if I could, probably sell it off for $40 and stick to my remastered COD: MW. Honestly, I'd rather play World at War or Big Red One than WWII, the formers being awesome games compared to the tragedy sledgehammer got caught up in.

    I purchased this to play with my dad and friends, while the game is fun; there are a lot of glaring problems. Shotguns are basically burst fire sniper rifles, there is literally no bullet flinch, and to top it off, the hit boxes are so inconsistent that you can get one bullet kills one second and empty a full clip the next to get one kill. Supply drop rewards are heavily influenced by whether they're purchased with his points or earned in game- with in game earned ones often yielding duplicate items. I've open to date 15 rare and above supply drops that have been all duplicates. Once you get past that, the campaign is decent. Zombies is actually fun. The new war mode is meant for pre-made parties as most in the matchmaking system are inconsistent at best and saboteurs at worst.
