Final Breakdown


Everything in balance, and plenty of gameplay modes to appeal to multiple styles of gamer.


If you're looking for games that show off the power of the next-gen systems, Call of Duty 4 and Call of Duty:World at War are two of the best. Some of the visual tweaks and tricks are incredible (check out the Bundestag level in single-player for a real treat).

Sound and Music:

Okay, so some of the dialogue and sound/music can get repetitive. It's still very solid and enjoyable.


As World War II games go, it's not insane, but it does offer enough surprises and a reasonable learning curve.

Controls and Interface:

If there's one major complaint from gamers over the years, it's that modern games are hard for people "new to the industry" to get used to due to the number of buttons. Since the Call of Duty series uses them all, there's probably a bit of paring-down that could be done.


Lower than its predecessor, but only by virtue of the predecessor being a genre-defining title. Well worth picking up if you've decided you are finished off with Call of Duty 4, at least temporarily.
