This part is developed by Treyarch and published by Activision. N-Space and Rebellion incorporated in the development of Nintendo and Play Station 2 versions of game respectively.


Call of Duty: World at War took almost 2 years in development. This part is powered by enhanced version of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare engine which helps to introduced many enhanced graphics in the game. Different versions of games for Nintendo DS and Play Station 2 were also developed.

The story of game revolves round the final battles of world war – II in Pacific and Eastern Europe that includes United States, Japan, Soviet Union, and Germany. This game has two campaigns in all. In first campaign players takes the role of Private Miller of US Marine Corps fighting with Japanese army. Second campaign is more interesting in which player acts as Private Dimitri Petrenko of Soviet Army fighting in Berlin. In this campaign he takes revenge from the German Army. There is a special co-op mode “Night of the Undead” that can be unlocked only after player completes single player campaigns. In this mode, 4 players can play simultaneously and they have to defend themselves from Nazi Soldiers. During this, players also earn points that can be used to buy new advanced weapons.


Thumbs Up:

Call of Duty: World at War is an excellent game in the world war settings with some advanced gameplay than its former parts Call of Duty 1, 2 and 3. Call of Duty 4 can be excluded in t his comparison as it was set in the modern time settings. The story of game is excellent with many turns. Some new weapons have been introduced in this part such as flamethrowers and bayonets. Multiplayer game option is also available in which two players can play via split screen and four players can play online. Vehicles are usable in multiplayer games also. Player in the game has enhanced ability to swim. Nazi Zombies are an added attraction in the game. There are total six multiplayer modes available. Soundtrack of the game is also worth mentioning like its previous parts.

Thumbs Down:

Although Call of Duty: World at War is a great game with advanced graphics and good story, but those familiar setting and familiar weapons may be boring for some game lovers. Some critics believe that plot of campaign in Pacific locations hurts the continuity of game’s story.
