Call Of Duty WW2 Review ‘Round Up

Well, its that time guys and girls! Call Of Duty WW2 has finally been released. Of course with a new release everyone big on the web is giving out their reviews like candy. I have a feeling that you will see some mixed reviews below because a lot of people are having issues with connectivity and errors. Nonetheless, if these reviewers try to forgive the game for these issues, I think they will find what I found in the beta; its a really good game. Without further ado, here are the Call Of Duty WW2 reviews from ’round the web. By the way remember, these reviews are reviews in progress.

GameSpot – 9/10 Miguel Concepcion

“Ultimately, if every shooter set in the European Theater of World War II is measured by how it depicts its D-Day landing–assuming it has such a mission–Call of Duty: WWII emphatically succeeds in its impactful designs and delivery. The sensation of riding the troop carrier as it approached the beach filled me with depression more than dread, knowing I’d survive eventually while many of my surrounding brothers in arms wouldn’t. While not equally emotional, this battle’s reinterpretation in War mode proves to be a highlight in a superb suite of competitive modes. Zombies rounds off this stellar return to form, effectively blending the ferocity of online cooperative play with the goal-driven satisfaction of found in the campaign. As one of the most comprehensive and filler-free Call of Dutys in recent memory, Call Of Duty WW2 successfully capitalizes on the series’ strengths.”

Polygon – No score… yet. Russ Frushtick

“The prospect of a modern take on World War II is an exciting one. What would the last ten years of gameplay, graphical and storytelling advancement bring to scenes that we’ve already experienced? Unfortunately the Call of Duty: WWII campaign is not up to the task, falling into rote cliches and overly familiar territory. While it returns to the era of classic Call of Duty, it neither captures the surprise of the early games nor the ambition of modern entries. Rather than serve as a reboot, Call Of Duty WW2 is more of a redundancy.”

Game Informer – 8.75/10 Daniel Tack

“While the campaign fails to provide a compelling tale and is often bogged down in uninteresting large-scale slaughter, Call of Duty:WWII nails its multiplayer, new social hub, and zombie modes to provide the back to boot-on-the-ground experience fans have clamored for since the first foray into space.”

Games Radar – 4/5 Leon Hurley

“From moment to moment, though, the campaign is solid, unwavering fun with some great set pieces and moments. Taking a step back really exposes the single player as a collection of good levels and ideas strung together, rather than a narrative. The experience overall though is good and, with such an enjoyable and varied multiplayer offering, everything ultimately balances out.”

Impulse Gamer – 4.5/5 Sean Warhurst

“With a campaign that not only treats the subject material with the necessary reverence but also injects a surprising amount of pathos into proceedings, some of the most solid multiplayer experiences on offer in years and what could very well be the absolute pinnacle of the Zombies sub-series, Call of Duty: WWII is an easy recommend to both long-time fans and those who may have strayed away from the series over the years.”

Xbox Achievements – 80/100 Richard Walker

“CoD’s return to World War II seems like its been a long time coming, but nine years on from World at War, Call Of Duty WW2 proves that there are still stories to be told based on history’s most deadly conflict. It’s also proof positive that Call of Duty can still deliver an edge-of-the-seat FPS experience.”

Critical Hit – 8.5/10 Miklós Szecsei

“Call of Duty: WWII is a great entry into the long-running series. Sledgehammer has done a fantastic job in creating a Call of Duty that will appeal to contemporary fans and those fans who might have favourable memories of earlier games in the series. It often walks a fine line between thoughtful representation of World War II and typical Call of Duty flamboyance, but it’s a line that Sledgehammer walks with confidence. The result is a Call of Duty that feels assured of what it’s trying to accomplish, and what it accomplishes is riveting, entertaining and at times hard-hitting.”

PlayStation Lifestyle – 9/10 Chandler Wood

“World War II was the right move. Call of Duty reaches back to its roots to bring players an entry worthy of the series’ namesake. The campaign is emotional, multiplayer is classic, and Nazi Zombies is downright dark and terrifying. No matter which kind of player you are, there is something for everyone, whether it’s a cinematic story, a competitive and social multiplayer, or an immensely difficult battle against undead Nazis. Call Of Duty WW2 is another incredible package of experiences, each distinct from the others, but tied together by the unifying themes of World War II that deserve your attention.”
