GamePro: World At War "A Better Shooter" Than Modern Warfare
When it was revealed that Treyarch planned to bring Call of Duty back to World War II, the groans could be heard around the globe. Everyone had just come off playing one of the best games of 2007 in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, and nobody could figure out why the new/old developer would change it back to a plain ol' WWII shooter.
But just about everything we've seen on World at War has been very encouraging, and Treyarch has said more than once they know Infinity Ward set the bar crazy high with CoD4. And now, according to what one tipster found in the latest issue of GamePro - just going out today - there's at least one publication who says this year's CoD will actually be better than last year's. No, really. As you can see through this link, the title of the feature in question is plain. The new CoD uses CoD4's engine, there are plenty of new additions like the flamethrower and being able to control attack dogs, and it seems the experience will be more grisly than ever. One of the world's greatest wars - if a war can even be called "great" - featured a whole lot of death and destruction, and Treyarch apparently plans to deliver the appropriate gore in spades. So can World at War really and truly top Modern Warfare? Is it just bigger and better overall?
Guess we'll have to file that in the ever-expanding "wait and see" file, but we have nothing but the highest hopes. Also, don't forget that GamePro will be running a contest for the multiplayer beta. You're supposed to go over to the official site, but as you can see, it's not up yet. Keep checking back, though. And lastly, until we can put the magazine in our hands, please just consider all this rumor and/or unofficial. That's just the way we gotta do things.
