Good game, horrible service.

Summary: Game is fine. I love the game, to be honest, but this is the most complicated thing I've ever used in my life. Punkbuster stopped supporting them, and before you could play, you had to install Punkbuster. So, it took me a good 2 hours to install Punkbuster. I get on and start to play multiplayer. Punkbuster kicks me out, though I wasn't cheating. It's a common problem, so save the trouble and don't buy it. It's not worth it.
Summary: The game pkg info wasn't clear enough. I made an ASSUMPTION the game included the game book. The information on the game didn't indicate the book wasn't included. Several other World at War games for sale stated not only condition, but, if the pkg didn't include the game book. Without the book the game isn't worth what I paid for it.
Summary: Having played all of the previous Call of Duty games, and considering how much fun I had with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, I thought that this game would be great. Let me make this simple. This game is fun, the online game play is entertaining and there seem to be no major flaws with the game. For me, World at War seems like a good mod for the Modern Warfare platform.
Summary: I never would have thought I'd give a Call of Duty game anything less than 5 stars. Some people have complained about graphics, sound, etc. I think the game looks and sounds great... WHEN IT WORKS! I've got a killer PC that runs any recent game at full settings with no problems. In fact, the first few levels of COD WaW went great. All of the sudden the game locks up randomly for no apparent reason.
Unbelievable amount of crashes, errors and black screens!

Summary: I have played the last COD games with absolutely no problem. I have a very powerful system - the game is great but there are so many bugs, It tends to get frustrating. It is impossible for me to just leave a game and start a new game. Previously I had to ctrl,alt, del and close the game however I found in a forum a procedure to hit alt and tab at the same time, then hit alt and tab a second time and the hit esc to get to the title screen.
Summary: I rarely finish games as they get repetitive and boring and sometimes just ridiculous and not worth it. Games I finish are FEAR, HALF LIFE, CRYSIS and similar quality of game. I have finished all 4 previous Call of Duty games and LOVED all of them even United Offensive (it was too short). I was waiting for this to come out, went out of my way to buy it on release day. PROS Graphics are still great smoke, fire, etc.
Summary: I got this game the day it came out, but the store only had the collector's edition. I usually don't splurge on the "collector's edition" of anything, but decided to give it a try, mainly for the special weapon and week of double XP. First off, the tin is ok, but nothing special. The flask is a joke. As others have mentioned, it's welded shut... totally useless, even as a paperweight. The game itself - I haven't played single player all the way through.
Summary: I have long enjoyed the Call of Duty series, though I missed COD3 since I'm not a console gamer. COD World at War looked to be the crescendo of the Call of Duty series: The gritty and brutal WW2 battlefield + the nifty and flexible COD4 perks system = should be great. I bought my copy on release day with hardly a glance at the reviews. I was excited, and convinced that it would be another winner.
