Call of Duty: World at War is a first-person shooter set during World War II and based on several historical battles. The action switches between three playable characters and covers the Pacific Theater and Eastern Front. The story begins with U.S. Marine Private C. Miller who is captured by the Japanese and waits for execution. Later it jumps over war theaters and the timeline, skipping entire months.
The battles in World at War are quite realistic, with the maximum of two weapons you can carry plus hand grenades. AI allies fight alongside to you, and there's also a cover system that helps to restore health and complete stealthy missions. The variety of levels includes PBY missions, sniper tasks, and sea battles. 
World at War is the first game of the franchise to introduce Nazi Zombies mode - a cooperative mini-game where 2 to 4 players fight endless hordes of zombies. While the area cover in this mode is quite small, it was expanded by the World at War map packs.

Call of Duty: World at War reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Deutsch
This Review is not of me but of xavlamin, http://steamcommunity.com/id/Xavlamin please ask him and not me, thank you-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------With the best COD! First of all: Every German who has this Game and likes to play should adden me! I recommend buying the Game in the Black Ops 2 Digital Deluxe Edition through MM.OGA (> €30), which seems to be available from time To time (currently not on Offer O _ o) OR it for €132, or 50% Off buying Steam (any major Sale You just have to be able to wait:P). Zombiemodus! After missing the Game the uncut patch, you can already go off, you have Friends with whom you can play it. The Game itself contains 4 epic Maps, which the other two Treyarch CODs cannot claim. ES GIBT NO DLCS! Means you don't have to pay 15 Euros for every additional Map. Instead, there's something I Think is missing from the other two Zombie CODs: CUSTOM ZOMBIES. Custom Zombies means that you can use Maps created by the Community (Players like you and me). Can play. In other Words, an unlimited Treasure trove of other epic Maps, where Some Treyarch can no longer keep up. The best thing about Custom Zombies is that it is the main Argument of the People who like the Zombie mode rather, according to the motto "You only Walk in Circles all the time," because here you can do the Eastereggs even after you have done the Eastereggs on the Maps of Black Ops 1 and 2. , all Weapons pounded and also tried to top his highest Round here still discover something. Since this is a very active modding scene, you can regularly find new Maps, With new Ideas (such as new weapons, Perks or a special Pack), some Of which are real "Treyarch ripe," or ideas have been incorporated into Maps of Black Ops 2. To the Gameplay of the Zombie mode: Relatively "yelged," making World at War the most difficult Zombie mode (recommending all my more cautious Gameplay, especially if the Game hates one especially xDD on this Day). I want to betotnen, That the Zombie mode of Black Ops 1 is technically better, but World at War is bocking much more, especially the Custom Zombies Part, where BO1 is also more expensive (Game about €13#mm .oga + 4DLCs (€15000 each), makes 80€ for 6 (or 11) Maps ). Multiplayer: Wonderful! No more Hackers (in the past there are supposed to have been some)! Unfortunately, NO PLAY. In fact, there is only one Non-hardcore (Hardcore Boots) server, with 36 Players. Otherwise I would give the Multiplayer 7/10 because I just celebrate it hard, unfortunately I can't really rate it because there's not too much going on (3 Points deduction, because of light glitchs, as with Knives). Kampange: The Kampanie I find personally better than that of BO/BO2. It is definitely Fun to play, even if, as usual, you have to do exactly what the Game asks of you. The best thing about the Kampanie is what probably requires all other CoDs that you can play the Kampanie together or géded (Points competition). In the Coop Kampanie You can turn on so-called "Death cards" (which you have to find in the different Levels) in order to make the Game varied, which means that you still Have fun despite playing a Level again (At the Kampanie of BO and BO2 misses one of the Fun of Playing second, it's just stupid that BO2 is designed to do it). Game, in my Opinion a MUST HAVE for zombie fans, but also nice as a Casual Game ^^. You can get the Custom Zombie Maps on Websites like Zombiemodding or Zommods (http://www.zombiemodding.com/index.php or http://zommods.com/) and I recommend the COD Zombie Channel veKtik and NGTZombies. Link to the installations Video with download Link in the Description (but not my Video Helped me): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ebjio235Gyc Here the Download link from the Description (the Download can sometimes pack around, then just try the next Day From the Wrong Download again): Https://mega.co.nz/#F! AglXTAyT!N9d9QiX8ZFF9IyP4Rl7RJA To everyone from Austria: It is usually enough for you to get to the test of The right (in the Bibiliothek), on characteristics, To speak, and then to put them in English and finish:) If there are any Questions left, use the Comments or read me and ask me via Chat Reed. :) Review of Xavlamin, http://steamcommunity.com/id/Xavlamin
