Call of Duty: World War II Doesn’t Disappoint

By: Ryan Guilbeau

On Friday, November 3, the highly anticipated new Call of Duty game dropped and it doesn’t disappoint.  

The past few games from Activision have been set in the future, but this game goes back to World War II. Personally, I am a huge fan of this change. In past games like Black Ops 3 and Infinite Warfare, they just didn’t feel realistic. You had the ability to have jetpacks and walk on walls and have laser guns, and that really took away from the authenticity feel for me. Activision finally fixed that for this game.  The game play is logical and is based on the missions in World War II.

There are the same three modes as the previous games: campaign, multiplayer, and zombies.  I am loving the campaign this year. There are different characters in your squad, and you get to know them more and more throughout the campaign via cutscenes. The cutscenes are actually very entertaining, unlike some previous games where you just wanted to skip them. What I think is the best about campaign this year is that health doesn’t regenerate. In games past, if you get shot, you get wounded but you take cover for five seconds and your health regenerates and you’re fine.

Although this makes the missions easier, you could literally get shot 100 times and never die. In order to get your health back up in this year’s game, you must find health packs in the environment and use them to restore HP. This makes the game harder, but also more fun. The campaign is a really great experience, and if you’re looking for a campaign with a fun, realistic story this might be the game for you.

The fan favorite and my personal favorite game mode is multiplayer. This game mode is when you battle against other real people. There are many modes to choose from in multiplayer, which gives the game a lot of variety and ways to play. I really like this year’s multiplayer because the rewards for leveling up are very good. In the past, it was fun to level up, but it really didn’t mean anything. Now, you get rewards for leveling up like unlock tokens to get different weapons, emblems, etc.

You also get armory credits, with which you can buy other items. There are also certain things you can only have when you reach a certain level, which makes the level system all around better than ever. The gameplay is fantastic, and I like the leveling system, but the maps aren’t great. Every new game has brand new maps that the game is played in, but there aren’t that many exciting maps, and there are a couple of them that I flat out don’t like. But besides maps, I think this year’s multiplayer has the best gameplay ever. If you play Call of Duty for the multiplayer, then you should seriously consider buying this game.

Zombies this year is fun, but I feel like it is the exact same thing as previous games. The map is different, but it seems like there is no change, which doesn’t bring much excitement to the table. You need to survive the wave of zombies, and each round gets harder and harder. I really only think this is fun to play with a friend, though. Campaign and multiplayer I can play by myself and have a lot of fun. I played a game of zombies with my friend, and it was pretty fun, but I also played a round alone and I found myself getting bored. This is probably my least favorite mode of the game, but if you play with friends a lot this is a fun one to play.

I am definitely a fan of Call of Duty World War 2, and I think it’s the best Call of Duty game in years. The campaign has a good story, and is an all around fun experience. The multiplayer is fantastic, and it seems like this is the best multiplayer maybe ever in my opinion.

World War II serves to be a very entertaining game, and I would give this game a 9 out of 10. I recommend buying this game, and I think if you like FPS (first person shooter) games this is a great game for you.
