Summary: I loved this game at first and thought it was the best due to the world war two theme and game play. Graphics are alright for a four year old game as well. The worst thing I ran into with this game is while playing multiplayer on xbox live the majority of people playing are running modifications that they have downloaded from the internet and constantly cheating while playing and can't be shot making it impossible to win a game no matter how good you are.
Conclusion: THIS ENTIRE ****ING SERIES SUCKS! DO NOT PLAY ANY CALL OF DUTY GAME AS THEY ARE PILES OF **** AND DESERVE TO BE BE BURIED IN A ****ING LANDFILL. THIS GAME SUCKS IN EVERY WAY! GRAPHICS, WEAPONS, MULTIPLAYERN, KILLSTREAKS ALL SUCK ****.
Summary: The game is absolutely fantastic! The gameplay is fantastic, controls are intuitive and graphics are supreme. I highly recommend this game, but CANNOT recommend the extra cost of the Collector's Edition. You can read any of these reviews about the useless "first day edge" and the extra character class that comes with it, and I'll have to agree with it. The "canteen" that it comes with is really a flask... which was cool with me... except that it is sealed shut!
Summary: Just a foreword, this is my review of one of what this Collector's edition promises to deliver, and that is the Day 1 Edge. What enticed me to get this collector's edition was the Day 1 edge. But it's a big disappointment. The FG42 gun is indeed available from Level 1, but only in the pre-made Machine Gunner class, and cannot be customized with perks and all. The gun in this class doesn't have the stopping power perk and there's no way to change it.
The truth about the World At War collector's edition!

Summary: My wife bought this for me as an early christmas present. I wholly enjoyed the previous CoD games, and was really looking forward to this one. Unfortunately, the CE version is completely NOT worth your money. Let's list the bonuses, and the problems with each: The Canteen: This is, in fact, NOT a canteen. It's more like a flask. Oh... and it's welded shut.
