Call of Duty WWII Video Review – Back to the Trenches, War as It’s Meant to Be

Call of Duty WWII Video Review

Unnatural thunder cracks across the night sky of the Western Front. It isn’t thunder, no, something more ominous, more deadly than the sheer force of nature: the enemy is raining down bombs in the night sky as your platoon tries its best to get some rest, because the next morning, hell will be at your door. Call of Duty has never been shy about the brutal realism seen in its games. While there may be a stigma about those who enjoy the series and the multiplayer aspect that brings, Call of Duty has always been one to bring a sobering realism to the various iterations that have taken place during WWII. With the 14th entry in the series upon us, just what did Call of Duty WWII bring to the table that we haven’t seen in the three previous ventures in the monumentally historic event? Check out our video review below to find out.

Call of Duty WWII is the latest in the Call of Duty series and stands out for creating a more realistic sense of the WWII experience by dialing back the outlandish gameplay mechanics to give the player something more authentic. Players will no longer heal over time, but rather require the attention of the squads medic.

There will also not be any advanced movement options such as double jumping or wall running as seen in the previous futuristic iterations of the series. The Campaign mode is set to be the most realistic and tragic experiences of the Call of Duty franchise yet, setting the player out in the Western Front with his fellow squad mates and showing just how terrifying the second world war really was. It does something to redeem itself and the stereotype of Call of Duty gamers when it creates an experience so profoundly emotional.
