I may be getting the PS3 version on Thursday. What's up with the lack of reviews though? It's already out in the US, and here tomorrow, I would've thought there'd be at least a few reviews by now.

I'll be getting it because most of the regulars I play CoD4 with will be but I think the general consensus on Live is that they'll buy it, play it for a couple of weeks and then out comes CoD4 again. That's what I'll be doing anyway.

Judging from the beta, its just CoD4 with old guns and bad (not so much bad, but compared to CoD4) maps. Not really much of a difference in any other aspects except for a few perks and minor differences. Can't really blame them though, considering the success of its predecessor in the online market.

Tanks are a nice addition though and can be pretty fun to use. Dogs are pretty cool change from the heli but can be WAY overkill, once I was sitting in a small hut on Makin with a, teammate fighting off enemy dogs. I ran out of ammo, the other fella ended up dying and I had to knife the rest off. In the end there were 9 dog carcasses just in the doorway. Another time I was on the giving end, and got 9 kills from one pack.

I'm not even worried about the campaign aspect so I don't really give a shit if that flops, as with CoD4 I only played a couple of hours on Rookie (or whatever the easiest mode is) and then started playing online again.

Will be picking it up on Saturday anyway using the trade-in deal at JB.

Actually i had high hopes for this, but after the beta, I was left less than impressed. So, giving it a miss for now. That and Gh:WT is going to put a massive hole in my wallet tomorrow.

I'll be picking up a PS3 copy tomorrow afternoon. Really looking forward to it. I've never really been into any FPS until last year when I played Resistance, and then when COD4 was released, I was amazed. The online was some of the best gaming ever. Anyways, since I haven't played many FPS games before, I'm not really bugged by the transition back to WWII, but previews haven't been too bad. Nonetheless, I'll be keeping COD4 just in case WAW doesn't turn out quite all it should be.

I'm getting the CE in the morning and will be playing it alot tommorrow.

I'm looking forward to it, but don't think it will be as good as COD 4. I'll still be playing COD 4 aswell.

i was the same mate. I hated FPS but resistance made me a massive fan of the genre.

I'll probably get it for christmas - there's just way too many great games on backlog at the moment ( I have to re-play Bioshock, start Assassin's Creed, play through Gears of War 2, and finish Fallout 3 ), not to mention Mirror's Edge and Left 4 Dead which are also coming soon.

Agree about the lack of early reviews. Not even one single review at GameRankings. That is rare for a big game so close to release.

I think its something to do with Activision. I am becoming sceptical. What are they hiding from the folks?

Well hope so, because I didn't get it at EB so I can't return it if I don't like it.

But COD games have usually been awesome so it's highly unlikely it will suck anyway.

Though after giving away the zombie mode, it would be amazing if Treyarch have more surprises.

^^Thanks a lot for that. Will be getting the PS3 version, but they should be identical.

Seems the online multi player has so much good stuff from COD4.

Happy to read the the part about a patch coming soon ot fix the over powered artillery strikes. That's good news. It will certainly balance the matches more.

So I have been wondering for a while why COD WAW is getting released on a Wednesday which is odd.

It has taken me so long to figure it out that it's because yesterday was Remembrance Day. And since COD WAW is set in WW2 it was a way to pay tribute to the troops.

Hence the game has been released a day after Remembrance Day.

Kind of a neat idea from Activision.

I am really enjoying Call of Duty: World at War. It's a lot more violent than any previous COD. I just saw a guy pick up a grenade to throw back, but it exploded, blew his arm off and just left a bloody stump behind. You wouldn't see that in COD4.
