ifteen years ago, a new game hit the shops to become a big hit for single player and multiplayer modes. That game was Call of Duty and it enabled people to fight in some of the most famous locations and battles of World War 2. Since then the Call of Duty fan based has grown and played a variety of games ranging from World War 2 to more modern day conflict situations.
Taking a leaf out of the book of Battlefield 1, Call of Duty has moved away from present day and future wars and gone back in history. In this case, back to the era the original game was born, 1939-1945 in Europe.
The single player campaign takes you through the story of Pvt Red Daniels (voiced by Brett Zimmerman) from the D-day landings through to the end of his war when he returns home. The D-day landings bring back some memories of the invasion recreated by Medal of Honour all those many years ago; but it is still fun and challenging to play. I don't want to say too much about the campaign as I do not want to give away any spoilers but it is something to be enjoyed!
The multiplayer option offers players the chance to take on other players in a variety of modes and locations. So far, I have personally not encountered any one I would label as a cheater, only people who play way too much and know the tricks to get ahead on the score board.
The zombie story of COD WW2 sees you in the dying days of the war in a small German town facing waves of zombies whilst completing a variety of tasks to enable the story to move on. There is a new map on the PlayStation however as an Xbox player I must continue to wait for the map to be released. I will offer my thoughts on this in a blog in a few weeks’ time.
All in all, I would consider the game worth playing. The graphics are good, the game play is good and so far the community has been friendly enough, and lacking in cheaters; which is always a good point. Out of 5 I would award the game 4.
