Ratings for Call of Duty: World at War

Rating Description
8.5
Presentation The pre-level loads are also the game's FMV story-driving sequences. The music is inspiring, the story hits home in a pretty brutal, historically-accurate way, and it lives up to its M rating.
8
Graphics The actual model detail and animations aren't always too hot, and environments are a bit inconsistent in overall quality, but the particle effects, smoke, lighting, and geometry make up for it.
8.5
Sound Kiefer Sutherland - the voice of Jack Bauer - does a great job, as do the supporting troops. Music is inspired and cinematic as well, with weapon audio also torn from the other versions.
7
Gameplay While the actual control could be much stronger, and the frame-rate isn't even a locked 30, the game's diversity in missions, and overall offering as a package trumps most FPS efforts on Wii.
8
Lasting Appeal Multiplayer is nice, but deathmatch only. Challenges, perks, weapons, levels and leaderboards are in, though co-op campaign, objective modes, vehicles, and zombie mode aren't. Online runs well though.
