CoD: World at War Beta

Recommended Posts

So I got access a few days ago (Xbox 360 version). It's ok, but I expected better to be honest. Annoying that Treyarch are developing this one, and also, wtf, why have they gone back to WW2? Going modern was a huge step forward for the series, now it's going back to every other war game.

That said, this is Call of Duty, and IMO they're the best WW2 games ever. I was addicted to the first one, played UO and CoD2 quite a bit too. CoD 3 was a bit of a failure but never mind that. CoD4 was fucking awesome, my friends and I still play this online quite a lot, I'm sure we'll play CoDWW online a lot too - I think the vehicles will bring something new to CoD multiplayer :)

Point of my topic though was just to ask if anyone else got their beta access and has played it, or is getting the game, or likes the CoD series... etc.

Yeah, I had heard it was bato world war 2, but I think they should stay with the modern one. It would be cool to see their version of a futuistic one to.

What is, and how do you ge Beta Access(Is it when you get to play it before its out)

I don't care tbh. When it comes out I'm getting it, cause CoD are probably the only game that can make WW2 best. But yeah, taking it back to WW2 is one big step back. But it shouldn't be a problem for at all.

Well, hopefully from seeing the previews of the multiplayer and Co-Op mode, it will punch in a lot of intensity.

You can get guaranteed access by preordering the game from GameStop (in the US) or GAME (in the UK), or if you're a member of callofduty.com and get selected etc.

Yeah my friends and I are looking forward to the co-op, should be a good addition to the actual multiplayer shizzle.

At first I thought this was going to be shit cause of the reason chris82 pointed out that Treyarch are making this one but after seeing the videos I changed my mind. Multiplayer looks pretty fun with lots of perks and stuff and co-op campaign should be fun as well. I'll probably end up buying it when it comes out.

I loved all 4 in the series. Looking forward to this one. Yeah i also think that going modern was a huge change and it felt quite good. Too bad none of that this time.

I think I got into Call of Duty long after the 2nd one was released...and I never owned one until the forth one came out. I always played the 2nd one on my friend's 360 and played a little of the 3rd, but like everyone has been saying...it sucked ass.

I mainly got the forth one because of it's large step forward and I wasn't really planning on getting World at War because of it's step back...and now I'm definitely not getting it from what I've been reading in this topic.

I think the reason people think 3rd sucks is because it is a lot identical to the second. And i like 3rd a lot maybe because i have never played the 2nd one yet :D

Trust me, play CoD2, it's alot more better than number 3.

Probably now is the time to get Call Of Duty 4 installed on my PC, just to I get ready for the next one. :D

Holy shit you're lucky as fuck. They've been giving them out for a while now. Thought they'd stopped by now.

Merged with our other topic.

Got my 360 beta when topic was posted, and PC beta last week. It's much better on PC as expected. Rounds are so short though (750 points) so if you play for a few hours you'll quickly get bored of the 3 maps that are available. Can't wait for the full game though.

an enhanced cod 3 it is

cod waw ... is like a cod 4.5

Dude, CoD3 is like the worst of the bunch, so I hope that was a typo. CoD WaW is essentially CoD 4.5 as you said, but an enhancement to 4, not 3, 3 fucking sucked. 4 was awesome.

Well the beta is now out for 360 and PS3 most likely (not too sure). I've been playing it for the past two days and it's pretty kick ass. Sure it's like Call of Duty 4.5 but still a great game with more features and I'm gonna buy it since I never really played CoD4 THAT much.

Can't wait to get this game this Friday (which I believe is its UK release date),it was either this or Quantum of Solace I was allowed to get so I choose this, don't know how good Quantum of Solace is though.

I heard it got a 7 or an 8, it was made using COD4's engine :P. I'd say its probably a good rent.

I'll probably end up getting this next summer, far too many other games coming out. Plus I can get it cheaper.

Red Devil, rent Quantum of Solace. It's apparently an underwhelming game, but definitely get COD5. All the previews so far look great. Just 4 days until it's out in the UK now. :) Off topic, I'm about level 18 on COD4 on my 4th prestige, or 5th, depending on whether the first playthrough counts.
