Call of Duty: World at War

A spectacular first-person shooter (FPS) set during the Second World War. The game was developed by Treyarch, Activision’s subsidiary. It’s three-chapter campaign spans across the years 1942-1945, being set on Southern Pacific and the Eastern front. We observe the events from the perspectives of three soldier (two Americans and one Russian), and we get to take part in such military operations as the defense of Stalingrad or the Battle of Okinawa. As usual in the Call of Duty series, the missions are heavily scripted to make the action seem more cinematic. Gameplay boils down to shooting sequences, in which we use a variety of historical weapons. In addition to a single player campaign the game also includes online multiplayer with new game modes: co-op and Nazi Zombie.

Call of Duty: World at War - Final Fronts is the PS2 counterpart of Call of Duty: World at War - another installment in the highly popular series of historical first-person shooters. In the previous chapters, except for the Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare and its sequel, we had the chance to visit villages and towns of Normandy, tasted the life of a Red Army soldier during the siege of Stalingrad, and felt the scorching sun of the North African desert. Call of Duty: World at War revisits the World War II setting featuring new theatres of operations.

The game includes four campaigns: War in the Pacific and Victory in the Pacific focus on the American marines fighting their way through island fortifications and the fanatical resistance of the Imperial Japanese Army - the PS2 version shares this part with other platforms, although featuring some plot changes - while the other two are available only on the PS2: The Winter Offensive, where the American and British forces move to relieve the city of Bastogne during the Battle of Bulge, and Victory in Europe, where you join the British and Canadian as they cross the Rhine river in an airborne operation near the end of the war, capturing the city of Wesel located in Ruhr district, and later, the American force tasked with capturing Hitler's birthplace in Austria.

In contrast to the other versions, Final Fronts features a training level and focuses strictly on single-player campaigns, having no multiplayer whatsoever. The game's development was outsourced to British developer Rebellion, and it employs a different game engine that the versions developed by Trayarch.

Call of Duty: World at War for Nintendo DS is another installment in the highly popular series of historical first-person shooters. In the previous chapters, except for the Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare and its sequel, we had the chance to visit villages and towns of Normandy, tasted the life of a Red Army soldier during the siege of Stalingrad, and felt the scorching sun of the North African desert. In the fifth chapter, the developers decided to changed the theatre of operations and send the player to wade through the humid jungles of the Far East archipelagos or to experience the Eastern Front right before the end of the war.

In Asia, American and Australian soldiers fight against the fanatically loyal troops of the Japanese Empire. This war is completely different from the one fought in Western Europe. If given the time, the Japanese turned the islands into fortresses, each possessing a network of underground tunnels, where you have to fight for every inch of ground. You never know if the bushes surrounding you conceal a squad of enemy troops, a machine gun nest, a bunker, or just some tropical birds.

In Europe, once again, the player assumes the role of a Red Army soldier. In the first Call of Duty, we had a chance to assault the Reichstag - the parliament building of the Third Reich - during the siege of Berlin. The creators returned to the subject of the final phase of the war, when combat takes place on the outskirts and later on, in the very center of the city.

Call of Duty: World at War for Nintendo DS was developed by Treyarch, the creators of Call of Duty 2: Big Red One and Call of Duty 3. As in the latter, the multiplayer mode features many various vehicles. Although the biggest progress was made in the single player campaign, where, for the first time in the series' history, we can fight alongside our friends in co-op. Up to three of them can help us complete the single player story over the Internet.
