Single Player – Mind-Blowing – 10/10 Set during the Vietnam and Cold War era, this game delivers on so much more than any other Call of Duty game could have ever hoped, the ludicrously in-depth storyline ranges from Fighting off the NVA in the trenches of Vietnam, flushing out the Viet-Cong from the Jungles, Villages and Mountains of Vietnam and Silently infiltrating a Soviet communications sub-station to gather valuable Intel, to meeting and receiving assassination orders from the President himself, Mr John F. Kennedy. Combine all of that with the signature cinematic experience of Call of Duty, and you have one kick-ass single player.
Multiplayer – more of the same, but with some nice additions – 9/10 The hugely popular multiplayer that many would call the main part of a Call of Duty game does not fail to deliver either. More of the same old gameplay that made the franchise famous, made more interesting with the addition of a few details, such as the new Emblem Editor, which allows the player to fully customise a unique emblem that can be displayed to all other players, and can be ‘printed’ on the side of your weapon. Although some may find editing their emblem boring and others will be just plain immature with it, I find this to be a very innovative and welcomed addition to the CoD Multiplayer Experience. Another nice addition is the currency system “CoD Points”. These can be used to purchase new weapons, emblems, attachments and perks, but they are mainly used to gamble with in ‘wager matches’ which feature some innovative game types that are fun to play. Also with the addition of a few new Killstreak rewards, Weapons, Perks and Maps, this game was sure to attract the masses of Call of Duty fans and more with this deep, rewarding multiplayer.
Zombies – A fun add-on, with hours of entertainment – 7/10 A nice addition to the overall game, very similar to the “Zombies” mode seen in Cod: World at War, this is sure to provide hundreds of hours of zombie slaying action for you and your friends. In fact, with some work, and some kind of storyline, CoD “Zombies” could easily become a multi-million dollar gaming release by itself.
