Ratings for Call of Duty: World at War

Rating Description
Presentation There' s a strong presentation, with loading screens that blend modern day graphics with archival footage effectively. Only thing missing are the salient historical quotes when you die.
Graphics The PS3 version suffers more from aliasing than the other versions. Still, it looks good and the frame rate is smooth, what more can you ask for?
Sound The audio is Hollywood quality as always; you can practically hear the motion of the actions on the various guns. And then there's Kiefer Sutherland and Gary Oldman, too.
Gameplay Call of Duty is known for its intensity and this game will immerse you in the action quickly. There's a wealth of gameplay options, as well.
Lasting Appeal There's plenty to here to keep you busy for a while, from single-player, co-op play, multiplayer, and, of course, Nazi Zombies.
