Default Call of Duty: World at War

Ok, there is a ton of good info out on this game coming out next month. I just got the beta codes for COD5 for xbox and I'm in the process of downloading it.

Here is a good link to the game play

http://www.gametrailers.com/player/41090.html

I have about 20% remaining on the download so I'll keep you updated on this. I guess I'm not going to take back the xbox after all...

the game play is similar to COD4... it's the same engine. the guns are a little slower in fire, but I presume that's either beta or time period. I've never played any other WW2 games, but I like modern day a LOT better.

've played the beta for about 6 hrs total now... there are three maps available in the Beta. You can only rank up to 11 in the beta. I was at that rank in about 1.5 hrs.

1) Makin - Set in the south pacific and is dark. With elevated huts and hiding places all over. Pretty open. This is USA VS Japan.
2) Roundhouse - kinda a cross between pipeline & bog. It's set in a deserted & destroyed train yard (Germans VS Russians)
3) Castle - Easy to get lost in and reminds me of a brighter Chinatown map. This is USA VS Japan as well. Couple of good sniping spots, but I'm still learning the maps.

There are 5 custom classes and as you prestige you can get up to ten classes. It appears based off the beta that there are 65 ranks. Juggernaut, martydom, last stand, stopping power, deep impact are all available. There is a 3 special grenade perk. You can choose a primary weapon and secondary of course and overkill is currently listed as a perk. You have 4 perks. Three are about the same as COD4 and the 5th is for vehicles. You can grab a tank in roundhouse. You can choose what type of primary grenade and secondary grenade you want. primary is like your frag and secondary is like smoke, stun etc. You can get tabun gas which makes your screen all red and you move really slow.

3 kill streak gets you a similar thing of UAV, but it's called recon plane. 5 kills gets your artillery bombs (similar to air strike) and 7 kill streak gives your dogs. the dogs are ANNOYING. I've only called in the dogs once and I got 5 kills out of it.

On the xbox, there are cool stats too, it shows you your nemesis, which is who you've killed or been killed by the most. Showing you how many deaths you've had from that person as well as how many times you've killed him.

The guns fire slower due to the WW2. There a series of bolt action rifles, rifles, submachine guns, shotguns and machine guns. The two guns that most people are using in the beta are the Thompson and MP40. I like both of them. They're semi-auto and remind me of the M4 & Mp5. The MP40 is a lot like the MP5. Easy iron sights and pretty good damage.

The sniper rifles available suck so far. I don't really care for them and hit detection on all the weapons used so far are a little hit or miss.

I'll post a little more and try and take some pictures of the screen shots and post. I'm going to try and figure out how to post video of the game play, although I suck!!!!

How's the damage on the bolt actions? 1 shot kills on chest or head for the k98 I hope? it doesn't surprise me that SMGs are the most used, that'll get annoying really quick.

I love WW2 games and I've been a faithful COD fan since their first one (which effing rocked) so I don't doubt this will be awesome. I don't know how I feel about vehicles though, I hope the levels are large enough to accommodate them effectively.

the bolt actions take at least two shots to get a kill. I actually hate using them because you can't really get kills with hit. Although, no scoping is pretty effective at a closer range.

Right now, the beta has horrible spawn points. I was just playing and killed 8 times in a row as I spawned. Very annoying.

I find the tanks on Roundhouse a little challenging to maneuver & get kills. I stay away from them. hard to blow one up too. You can kill the person in it with your primary weapon, but it takes a lot of bullets.

I was a VIP member on callofduty.com and they emailed me the codes. You can also obtain them by pre-ordering the game at gamestop.

Ugh, it sounds like they took COD4 and reskinned the weapons to suit a WW2 genre game. 2 shots to kill with a bolt action? WTF? Rifle mounted grenade launchers? Aperture sights?!?!?!

Why can't they make a decent WW2 game that's actually realistic?

Nice write up. Like Vic says, it just seems like more of the same CoD. There are just too many good games coming out for me to buy something that will feel like I have played it before. Im sure it will be good though, I might rent it.

yeah, it really is COD4 2.0. I'm going to get it because it still is fun. Keep in mind they will improve on things from feedback from the beta. The release should fix the bolt action issues and a few other things.

Yeah I fully intend on getting it, but it's just a little disappointing that they didn't make it a bit more realistic. It'll still be way better than COD2 and 3 though
