Call of Duty: World at War for PC, PS3 and etc. is another installment in the highly popular series of historical first-person shooters. In the previous chapters, except for the Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare and its sequel, we had the chance to visit villages and towns of Normandy, tasted the life of a Red Army soldier during the siege of Stalingrad, and felt the scorching sun of the North African desert. In the fifth chapter, the developers decided to changed the theatre of operations and send the player to wade through the humid jungles of the Far East archipelagos or to experience the Eastern Front right before the end of the war.

In Asia, American and Australian soldiers fight against the fanatically loyal troops of the Japanese Empire. This war is completely different from the one fought in Western Europe. If given the time, the Japanese turned the islands into fortresses, each possessing a network of underground tunnels, where you have to fight for every inch of ground. You never know if the bushes surrounding you conceal a squad of enemy troops, a machine gun nest, a bunker, or just some tropical birds.

In Europe, once again, the player assumes the role of a Red Army soldier. In the first Call of Duty, we had a chance to assault the Reichstag - the parliament building of the Third Reich - during the siege of Berlin. The creators returned to the subject of the final phase of the war, when combat takes place on the outskirts and later on, in the very center of the city.

Call of Duty: World at War for PC, PS3 and etc. was developed by Treyarch, the creators of Call of Duty 2: Big Red One and Call of Duty 3. As in the latter, the multiplayer mode features many various vehicles. Although the biggest progress was made in the single player campaign, where, for the first time in the series' history, we can fight alongside our friends in co-op. Up to three of them can help us complete the single player story over the Internet.
