Call of Duty: WW2

Call of Duty: WW2 is a 2017 first-person shooter video game developed by Sledgehammer Games and published by Activision. It was released worldwide on November 3, 2017 for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. I personally have played a number of Call of Duty campaigns, so it was fun to see how this one measured up.

This is one game that I was interested to review, so far I have picked games that I know are pretty good just because I wanted to share my thoughts on them. This is only the second game that I have never played that I am reviewing. WW2 is one of the only Call of Duty games I never played. When this game came out it there were also some really big titles that came out as well such as The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Super Mario Odyssey, and the biggest one for me Destiny 2. With these coming out the last thing on my list to spend $60 was another Call of Duty. But a couple months ago WW2 was on sale for free on PlayStation Plus, so I thought what the heck its free and I will find some time to play it.

Months later I finally had a couple hours between assignments and I actually am kind of glad I played it. While it wasn’t COD 4 it was still pretty good. This campaign obviously takes place during World War 2, starting at D-Day on June 6th 1944 and the events that follow in the allies trying to take back Paris and push the Germans away. You follow in the steps of Private Daniels and the battalion he is a part of. You get to use many different types of weapons and vehicles. There is many different types of levels from standard battle, high speed vehicle, stealth, and tank levels. I think this variety is what kept me interested in playing the game.

In terms of the level design the levels were extremely detailed, while I don’t know personally what European country side looks like, I got a pretty good idea from this game. The graphics looked genuinely realistic and kept me immersed in the game. The one thing I didn’t really like were some of the hand to hand combat mechanics, where you had to drag your left stick and press either square or triangle (for PS4) in order to use properly win hand to hand engagements. This mechanic I was not ever introduced to so it took me multiple tries to pass these encounters.

In terms of the story, it was pretty well put together, the level design and graphics were pretty high quality. The only place that this game wasn’t good for me were the hand to hand engagement mechanics. With this in mind I give Call of Duty: WW2 a 4 out of 5 stars for the Spartan Score.

    I am not a fan of video games. My boyfriend does them but I don’t think that it is appealing.

    I used play this game all the time until the updates got too big for my Xbox to handle.

    I’m not a fan of Activision, but I remember the COD games being a big part of my life. I always liked zombies best though.
