Games Call of Duty 5 - World @ War

Anyone else playing this?

I always enjoyed the CoD series, but when COD4 came out it was like a whole new game (and for the better). The graphics were sick, the game mechanics were great and both the single player and online multiplayer were engaging and addictive. I just picked up CoD5, Treyarchs answer to Infinity Ward's CoD4.

The graphics are great as it is based on the same engine as CoD4, the story is lacking and really fails to immerse you in the plot or connect you with the characters - maybe with the exception of CoD4 this has been a standard shortcoming in the series.... and while I would normally complain about the lack of immersion in the plot, in a game like this its a forgivable offense.

I like the return to WWII era, it really adds to the grittiness of the game since the weapons are (for the most part) very realistic and require you to be up close and personal most of the time. I like the addition of the flamethrower although it feels a bit overpowered - the enemy has little chance of survival when you have the ability to throw a 40 foot wall of napalm at them... I can only watch so many axis bastards burn to their death while I stand there and laugh.... I find myself returning to the BAR or the M1 Garand rather quickly.

The addition of co-op multiplayer campaign is nice and definitely the biggest feature that was lacking in CoD4 - however the way that the game splits the screens is annoying and takes some time to adjust to even on my 50" tv.

Multiplayer is an almost exact carbon copy of CoD4 - which is the best feature in the game. If it works, dont fix it. With the exception of a few new perks and bigger maps it feels just like the previous installment.

Overall I give this game a 6/10 rating for single player and a 9/10 for the multiplayer.

If you already own CoD4 and have played it through I would definitely recommend getting CoD5, however if you have not played CoD4 - save yourself the 20$ and go play that one first and get CoD5 when the price drops.

I've been very impressed with it. My friend has it for 360, and i tend to spend my time playing COD4 on my ps3.

The game looks very intense, lots of fun and i'm quite impressed. Unfortunately when my friend was having a massive online stint, i was wasted and fell asleep on the sofa at 2am.

I want to have a bigger play on it though

comments on the flamethrower though, it is very very powerful, but when you get out in the open, with people in long grass and behind rocks and stuff, that's when it gets troublesome.
