Worst multiplayer Call of Duty ever
21 July 2010 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

I'm going to start of by saying that I liked the singleplayer-campaign for Call of Duty: World at War. Not that its anything special, but its nice to shoot your way through the campaign. Its your average World War 2 shootinggame. The multiplayer however, is by far the worst Call of Duty experience I have had.

The weapons in multiplayer are unbalanced to say the least. With some weapons you need to fire so many bullets into your opponent its ridiculous. Even in hardcore-mode (where the weapons have more 'realistic' firepower) this is unbalanced. Using your knife as a melee- attack in multiplayer is also completely useless. Usually when you try to knife your opponent your character does this weird 'jump attack' towards your enemy, and I guarantee that this move will nearly always get you killed instead. Sometimes you can even hear your knife striking the enemy, but you still end up dying. What the hell is that all about?? Its also very easy to get stuck in the scenery or behind objects, which happened to me more then just a couple of times. Bugs like these ruin what could have potentially been a good multiplayer-experience.

The biggest saving grace for me personally, is the Nazi-zombies mode. If it wasn't for this I would have quit playing this game a long time ago. This mode is unlocked once you complete the singleplayer-campaign, and I have to say its a lot of fun. The premise is that you and up to four buddies mow down waves after waves of zombies, while preventing them to get inside by bolting windows shut which gives you points. Shooting a zombie will also get you points of course (extra for headshots) which you can use to purchase weapons. You and your companions are destined to die from the beginning since the waves of zombies are never-ending, but the question is: how long can you survive? Even though many 'elite' Call of Duty players will probably don't like the Nazi-zombies mode, I think its a refreshing experience in what otherwise would have been a boring, buggy and overall flawed shootinggame. If you play Nazi-zombies with three friends online it will make for a chaotic and intense game of shooting zombies.

Would I recommend buying this game for the Nazi-zombies mode alone? Not really. If you don't count the average singleplayer-campaign it doesn't have much else to offer. The regular multiplayer with team deathmatch and similar modes will drive you insane with all the little bugs and glitches that it has. In that aspect Modern Warfare 2 does a much better job. Still, if you can get this game at a store for just a few Euro's then it might be worth checking out. I really hope that developer Treyarch will get their act together and deliver a well-programmed game with the upcoming Call of Duty game Black Ops. Until then, have fun shooting zombies!
