    It's Call of Duty.

    This game sort of doesn't deserve 4 stars, but not all of its warts are the game's fault per se. First of all, the good: This is the best CoD in a few years, in my humble opinion. I'm obviously talking solely about multiplayer because What Is Call of Duty Campaign. It feels pretty solid, there's no more dashing/thrust packing/ice skating/wall running, and I like the way they've streamlined many of the perks and attachments. I feel less clueless when it comes to making a class with regard to what's best for my playstyle. Now, the bad: Because it's 2017, they had to add a Headquarters (think Destiny), which is a multiplayer hub of sorts that hogs resources and computing power. They've patched it since the game's launch, and it's better now, but it still doesn't need to exist. And, of course, because it's 2017, Loot Crates. Also, after playing Battlefield 1 most recently, I've come to realize CoD's sound design is terrible in comparison. My firearms feel and sound like pop guns. Lastly, campers still reign supreme in CoD. As mentioned above, this isn't the game's fault but rather the players who prioritize K/D over fun/actually playing the game. In any case, if you like CoD games, this is a known quantity, and it's worth picking up, especially if you share content with a friend. I would not recommend paying full price and expecting 100% satisfaction. Listen to more video game news & reviews on the 2v1 Podcast on iTunes. Thanks for reading! -Sworbachev

    Campaign- The campaign is fun, though I feel the ending is a bit of a let down. Without spoiling, there are some events that happen that just felt forced, and to me the campaign would have been better off without them. Voice acting is good, and the campaign is worth replaying as it is refreshing thanks to it being a WWII genre. Couple more gripes with the campaign. I don't like that COD hasn't left its format of endless waves of enemy, and forcing you to rush up in order to stop the endless hords of enemy that will come out. It makes the game feel dated at times. Finally, some of the weapon drops after killing a German soldier are just inaccurate. I found more semi auto shotguns, or ppsh's than Kar 98's. I was actually really surprised how many ppsh's I found as it was a Russian SMG that the Germans didn't wildly use, not unless they took it off a dead russain. Online- Online is fun, and addictive at times. I like the different classes, and the perks of each. War mode is also a welcome addition to COD multiplayer. My only gripe is you really have to turn off your brain during multiplayer playing if you are an historical buff of WWII as it is about as accurate as the wonder Sean Connery James bond movies. Overall it is a fun game, and one that I am playing through again even after beating it. It gets 4 stars though due to some pretty outlandish historical inaccuracies that drive me nuts as a big buff of WWII weapons.

    I originally played this in Beta and absolutely didn't want to buy this upon release as the multiplayer was atrocious. Time after time I was shooting first and dying first, going from an average 1.5-2.5 kd across all FPS games to sub 1 most matches. It was the same issue I had with Infinite Warfare, and oddly enough, my friend with poor internet connection didn't have these issues. Come release time my friend bought me this as a "gift", and I pretty much would rage quit after an hour or so. Maybe about 6 months later I came back to the game, and I don't know what they fixed but it plays true now. But here's where the problems still lie, it's a low tier designed game disguised as AAA. The character movement is horrible (plays like an early 2000s or older game), the sound effects are weak, the graphics aren't that impressive, the map design is so cluttered, small and bad I refused to buy the map packs. It's just a meh game, it's laughable to me, and unfortunate as well cause I really, really wanted to enjoy this game since it's WW2.

    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.

    A New Era of Call of Duty

    The campaign is more of a movie than game, except movies don’t have as many bugs. While the campaign was mostly acceptable (with exception to glitches), I couldn’t help but feel like I was watching a movie. The graphics are really good, which I understand is why the campaign is set up that way. However, while I do enjoy a good movie, I’d rather play the game. Multiplayer is all sorts of different, not necessarily in a good way. I haven’t played newer Call of Duty games until recently, and I must admit the multiplayer didn’t blow me away like it used to. COD points and supply drops have really put me on edge, made worse by the constant barrage of DLC content. There are also constant glitches that often interfere with gameplay, and it doesn’t seem like the developers are in a rush to fix them. In all, the online gameplay feels degraded when compared to older CODs, and doesn’t stand out too much from more recent CODs. To summarize, the campaign is a movie with lots of bugs and glitches, and multiplayer isn’t anything to die for. Unfortunately, unless something improves soon, I wouldn’t recommend this to anybody.

    FINALLY Back to Basics!! (Multiplayer-Only Review)

    Every year, Activision promises some type of user-friendly revamp of the CoD franchise, and, well...look where that got us: INFINITE WARFARE. Naturally, hearing WWII would go "back to its roots" and return to "boots on the ground" action, yeah I was skeptical. But wow! They were right! This feels like it belongs back in the MODERN WARFARE and WORLD AT WAR era of the franchise! With just a dozen or so Scorestreaks available and perks/weapon upgrades spread out across different Leveling-Up components brings variety, balance, and competitiveness back to the game. HQ is also a welcome addition both as a social space and a way to provide a more interactive experience. Plus, the Scorestreak Training Ground is loads of fun! The only things preventing me from giving a 5-star review (again, MP only as I've not played Campaign nor Zombies) are that quickscoping is again problematic and there are too many times that the game doesn't immediately load you into a game (i.e. you start with your group but get stuck in "Spectating Mode" anywhere from 5 seconds to nearly an entire minute, which puts you at a disadvantage right off the bat).

    Engaging Campaign, Addictive Multiplayer

    WWII is a big departure from last year's Infinite Warfare. This game goes back to its roots and doesn't allow you to heal automatically (health packs are needed) in the campaign only. As true with other entries, the campaign is filled with big set pieces, celebrity voice-acting (though, the celebrities seemed paired down compared to previous games), and lots of choke points, where you will be tasked to clear enemies or get to a well defended objective while going it alone. Squadmates can be helpful in the campaign, but the Veteran difficulty setting will challenge the best FPS player. Online multiplayer is addictive. Contracts, short-timed objectives you complete for rewards, as well as Orders, day or week long missions you take on to receive experience or loot chests. will motivate you to play in different ways, with different load outs so that you can further your progression. Aiming and damage seems more random than previous games, so that gives encounters against enemies a feeling of chance. I've not played the Zombies mode yet, but I've heard it's well done. A fun entry into the long running series.

    After 1yr the game is a good solid stress reliever, or builder, depending on how worked up you get. LOL. When the game first came out it had really good support and server support. But as BO4 came out activision has really slacked on keeping up the support. I stopped playing due to shooting through other players and not counting, but they could kill me just fine. At first I thought it was me but after chatting with multiple people having the same issues and all of us checking our latency with 52ms being the highest, we have came to the conclusion that it's just the game now. So if you don't get frustrated from dying all the time because you shot first but didn't hit anything you'll still like the game. I unfortunately can not stay calm in those instances and had to move on to BO4. I did not want to, I really like the game play of WW2 when it was supported. I would give the game 5 starts in the beginning but 3 now. And that's being lenient.

    I believe this COD gets back closer to its original roots and away from catering to the kids. It is a fast-paced game and based on the smaller maps and open play areas, they have set this up to be a run and gun game and taken a lot of the camping abilities out of it due to so many lines of sight and the fact that places that should be dark, when viewed from a distance appear to be illuminated by spotlights - this, along with most maps being small and the limited number of maps on the initial release drop it a star in my book. I had virtually zero play on the last two releases due to their futuristic play. I like Halo, but that isn't what I was buying. This one takes you back. Quick-scoping has been nerfed a bit (good thing) but pistols still seem to have an awful lot of unrealistically, accurate range on them. Fun game, but I hope the map packs will accommodate the campers more. I am happier with a 10-1 KDR than a 18-10 with a higher score. Run and Gun isn't a realistic way of playing for me because there are no respawns in life, so that's the way I approach these games.

    Call of Duty the passed few years has lost what made it special a decade ago. The campaigns went to new worlds, added jet packs and future tech. The multiplayer had wall running and ground pound spike gloves. It just wasn't the COD that I fell in love with years ago. But COD WW2 bring is back to the basic run and gun feel and it is great. The campaign covers months during the invasion to push the German lines back and is full of some really great set piece moments. There are some times in the story where you get a breather and the characters just chat instead of constant explosions and that is a nice addition to get to know the characters and the world around you. There is a great mission where you use espionage to sneak into a building and it was a nice change of pace as well. If you want a more classic COD feel to multiplayer and also to go back and relieve some awesome moments from the COD WW2 days but now they look stunning in new graphics, for sure pick this game up!

    I do have to say that Activision made more effort into listening to the consumer with COD WW2. For example, returning back to WW2, Introduction of a social space for players, and better weapon customization. But this game is plagued with a lot of problems that COD has had and most games nowadays have. For example, something that is exploited in this game is the ease of quick scoping. Players can run around instantly killing you with one shot with the snipers. Also one of the big things that plagues this game is the bugs. In multiplayer, there are bugs in the social space that keep players from being in it together. If you are in a party with your friends the game may go to a black screen and crash. These are among some of the ones that are most noticeable but there are others. All in all I have fun while playing this game. It is an improvement on the franchise from the direction it was heading in previous games. Id recommend buying it when it goes on sale.

    COD has went back to its roots and gave up the wall climbing, etc. Thank God! This game is great. The weapons are great and the lobbies have worked so far. I have not tried the campaign but I am sure that it will be hard as h3ll on Veteran as usual. The only issue that I have seen has been with the Social lobbies in the Headquarters. They need to figure out how to fix this so that you can socialize with other players while opening Drop boxes, practicing in the firing range, etc. It is very interactive and a lot of fun to level up classes (Divisions) and weapons. The divisions are divided up into: Mountain (snipers), Infantry (rifles), Expeditionary (shotguns), Airborne (sub machine guns), and Armored (light machine guns). They each have their pluses and minuses. I would suggest starting out with the Infantry Division as it is the easiest to get used to at first. I have played this almost every night since launch. This is a must buy!

    1) Story: if you’re interested in buying just for a nostalgic story, wait for a sale. This is a generic story with generic characters. There’s some really intense action moments as always but I can’t justify a $60 purchase just for 7 hours of veteran difficulty gameplay. It is definitely fun but very short lived in my opinion. 2) multiplayer: this is nothing new. absolutely nothing to add value to the multiplayer experience. Headquarters is really too hyped and glorified; I don’t understand it. There is no practical use of it and the fact people are pushing it as a selling point is crazy. You will have fun with the new modes for maybe a week and then stop playing it if none of your friends have the game. It gets more frustrating than fun. Overall: the same annoyances as every other call of duty is still there.... but there’s also still a short lived fun factor to it and that’s all that matters.

    Call of Duty:WWII is a deeply flawed game. The campaign is fun, but short, extremely historically inaccurate (Germans using Russian guns, using guns that didn't exist in that time period, etc), and very censored (where are all the symbols?), and the teammates mechanic gets real old real fast. Multiplayer was a huge broken mess for days after launch, and is pretty much in line with other CoD games, meaning it's archaic and feels very old. Balance is terrible, modifying weapons is not fun, and the setting ensures there's not a good mix of things to do. There's also a heavy pay to win mechanic in place, with these AAA games going "Games as a service" now encouraging the player to keep opening their wallet continuously to keep playing. Save your money for something worthwhile. Also, Best Buy won't let me even mention who the bad guys are, claiming it's inappropriate language.

    The game has came back to its roots which I like, my nephew plays as well so now we can both play and spend quality family time together. Online play games used to be fun but as the gained popularity the trash talking and insulting of "under par" players made the games not fun to play. Now you can mute all the other players and I have not seen anyway for the veteran players to kick out under performing ones. So far the campaign is really good, I have yet to finish so not sure if the length of it will be up to my standards. The online play can be a bit frustrating if your a bit older and slow like myself, but for the most part still enjoyable. I feel to get the most out of the game team play is a must so if possible to get a few friends and family together to have a small group (If recall right teams are only 6 man/women ) so for most people that is doable.

    This game is what I’ve needed. It is a reminder of how good Call of Duty games were in the past. It is true run and gun chaos multiplayer. The new War mode is very fun as well, have gotten hooked on that myself. Now, the campaign. The easiest way to put it... a work of art. I have never had the feeling that I am playing a movie until now. The graphics, especially on the cutscenes, are out of this world. The story, the directing, the actors, all went above and beyond in making this game. You can tell there was a sense of honor is making this part of history reachable to a younger generation. This game has been worth the years I’ve been waiting for it. I love everything about it and even after years of built up hype it is better than anything I could of imagined. Thank you Call of duty for making this happen and turning it into such an amazing experience.

    Cod ww2 is a neat concept, and I was actually excited about it's release, which hasn't happened for me with a cod game in the last 4 years. The last one, while I'm spacing on the title at the moment, I never even bought. I just haven't had any interest. With the new cod going back to its roots, boots on the ground combat style, I thought I would learn to love the series again. And I have tried. Played for a total of 18 hours now. But something just feels different. It's not the same cod that I used to know and love, but it's still something to pass the time. The new war mode is really cool, and honestly is all I will play. But even that is limited to 3 maps, and the objectives seem a bit repetitive. All in all, I would give it a 6.5 to a 7 out of 10. Way better than the other recent titles, but still a long way to go to be great again.

    So I've been looking forward to the non space agey CoD game for a while. The days of spray and pray, death from above etc. being gone make this a much more intense player experience. Modern Warfare is still by far my favorite but WWII is a huge leap towards recovering the franchise that in my opinion was starting to fizzle out. They think before you shoot rifle actions, limited LMG actioms etc. are great. The snipers and shotguns are still OP as with almost all CoD games before they need them but overall it's a solid game. Now for the bad... I cannot get it to play on any of 3 Xbox One S's. It hangs, glitches, bugs, or straight up jumps back to the home screen randomly. I've tried all the online fixes to no avail. The disc is clean, the cache is clear and still nothing. The campaign bugs out as much as online multiplayer.

    My oldest son pestered me daily for this game. It arrived a little later than it was suppose to but it was worth the wait. He has spent hours playing it. From what I seen the graphics are pretty awesome. My youngest boy loves playing zombies on it. And for once a video game is shared between the two. My middle boy will actually leave his room to come out and play this game and watch his brothers play. My boys are like oil and water. They don’t mix. But this game has brought unity and teamwork to them. For that I give this game an A++++ 6 out of 5 star rating. Heck I even bought the ps4 platform so they couldn’t fight who would play. Heck I didn’t even need to. Heck my firefighter hubs even leaves his couch to play this game after not sleeping due to a 24 hour shift. He does not game. That should tell you something.
