Reviews
Attack of the Fanboy - William Schwartz - 4.5 / 5 stars
The developers hammer home what made Call of Duty so great in previous years, while also adding a bunch of modern content and gameplay twists of their own. As far as Call of Duty games go, WW2 is an instant classic.

AusGamers - Steve Farrelly - 9 / 10.0
Another great Holiday release to add to your (likely) growing pile.

COGconnected - Trevor Houston - 85 / 100
It remains as punishing as any other zombie game I have played to date.

Critical Hit - Miklós Szecsei - 8.5 / 10.0
Call of Duty: WWII is a great entry into the long-running series. Sledgehammer has done a fantastic job in creating a Call of Duty that will appeal to contemporary fans and those fans who might have favourable memories of earlier games in the series. It often walks a fine line between thoughtful representation of World War II and typical Call of Duty flamboyance, but it's a line that Sledgehammer walks with confidence. The result is a Call of Duty that feels a.ssured of what it's trying to accomplish, and what it accomplishes is riveting, entertaining and at times hard-hitting.

Digital Chumps - Alex Tudor - 9.5 / 10.0
Call of Duty: WW2 is the best Call of Duty in years. bombastic story, k!ller grounded multiplayer, and a dark and scary Zombies make up one of the most complete and enjoyable Call of Duty experiences in years.

EGM - Nick Plessas - 8.5 / 10.0
Call of Duty: WWII's changes to the core Call of Duty experience are few but distinct. This leads to a good balance between relishing everything Call of Duty used to be and still continuing to move the series forward.

Gadgets 360 - Rishi Alwani - 7 / 10
All in all, Call of Duty: World War 2 plays like the series' early hits. By no means is this a bad thing, though the overall formula and package is wearing thin.

Game Informer - Daniel Tack - 8.8 / 10.0
While the campaign suffers from uninspiring cliches and endless k!lling fields, the multiplayer options are excellent and bring the series back from the future.

GamesBeat - Dean Takahashi - 94 / 100
My hat's off to the developers at Sledgehammer who are helping a new generation understand the sacrifices of those who died in the Second World War.

GameSpot - Miguel Concepcion - 9 / 10
Sledgehammer Games superbly takes Activision's marquee shooter franchise back to its boots-on-the-ground roots.

GamesRadar+ - Leon Hurley - 4 / 5 stars
COD has a few issues in single player this year but the overall package delivers another good shooter with plenty to do and some neat new online ideas.

GamingTrend - Mike Dunn - 90 / 100
With a campaign that brings some of the most historical battles of the European Theater to life like never before, multiplayer that combines the best of the old and the new, and one of the most visceral Zombies games the series has had, Call of Duty WWII is a triumphant return to its roots, reminding us why those early games were so good in the first place.

God is a Geek - Calvin Robinson - 9 / 10.0
A spectacular release that has a strong chance of becoming a fan favourite as one of the best Call of Duty releases in years.

Hardcore Gamer - Steve Hannley - 4.5 / 5.0
Call of Duty: WWII will be fascinating to study from a business standpoint: will consumers embrace the product they have long been clamoring for and how will Activision handle its business strategy moving forward? Will they dive exclusively back into World War II until gamers tire of it again or cycle between different eras from here on out? Whatever happens, there's a fantastic game at the center of this future case study that proves that no matter the ballyhoo, Activision will ensure a superb experience is delivered.

IGN - Dan Stapleton, Miranda Sanchez - No Verdict

IGN Italy - Mattia Ravanelli - Italian - 8.5 / 10.0
Call of Duty WWII is a really neat package. The campaign, even if still too predictable, is powerful and enjoyable (while it lasts). Headquarters and War Mode gave a new coat of paint to the PvP and Nazi Zombies is a tough and deep experience.

IGN Spain - Juan García - Spanish - 8.3 / 10.0
A return to the old good times of Call of Duty that brings more from that time than we were expecting. The campaign feels short and too linear, while the multiplayer options shine with a different light compared with previous CoD experiences. A good game, but not the best one on the series.

Impulsegamer - Sean Warhurst - 4.5 / 5.0
Call of Duty: WWII is precisely what fans have been clamouring for over the last few years – A return to traditional boots-on-the-ground gameplay with an increased focus on skill and I have no doubt that it will resonate with fans in a way that the last few games have failed to manage.

M3 - Niklas Alicki - Swedish - 7 / 10
Call of Duty WWII is in the middle of an identity crisis, but by going back to its roots, it has created slower and more tactical gameplay that is much more fun to play than the wall running and double jumping from the last few installments.

NZGamer - Keith Milburn - 8.5 / 10.0
Frantic, kinetic, and fun multiplayer – when removed from its context.

PlayStation LifeStyle - Chandler Wood - 9 / 10.0
World War II was the right move. Call of Duty reaches back to its roots to bring players an entry worthy of the series' namesake. The campaign is emotional, multiplayer is classic, and Nazi Zombies is downright dark and terrifying. No matter which kind of player you are, there is something for everyone, whether it's a cinematic story, a competitive and social multiplayer, or an immensely difficult battle against undead Nazis. Call of Duty: WWII is another incredible package of experiences, each distinct from the others, but tied together by the unifying themes of World War II that deserve your attention.

Polygon - Russ Frushtick - No Verdict
The campaign attempts to bring up the "tough" questions about war, but when you're intermingling those questions with outrageous, comic violence, it comes off as disingenuous.

Telegraph - Chris Schilling - 4 / 5 stars
The series' dwindling popularity has proved a tough nut to crack for its publisher in recent years; COD: WWII proves that maybe a Sledgehammer really is the right tool for the job.

Xbox Achievements - Richard Walker - 80%
CoD's return to World War II seems like its been a long time coming, but nine years on from World at War, Call of Duty: WWII proves that there are still stories to be told based on history's most deadly conflict. It's also proof positive that Call of Duty can still deliver an edge-of-the-seat FPS experience.

Online is absolute garbage right now. Same ol Call Of Trash problems every year, you shooting someone takes so many bullets to k!ll, they literally pop their gun around the corner and you're dead.

I was strongly considering purchasing this on Tuesday when I pick up the One X. It ain't right if I don't welcome myself back with a new purchase.


Gotta get Destiny 2 and Forza 7 as well.

It’s alright. In a way it’s nice that it’s back to boots and ground but the actually gameplay is bare as fu*k. It’s glitchy as fu*k.
