    Call of duty 5 World at War was released in the US today and there is already a patch for it.

    Whilst visiting Fleshack to download a patch for something else I noticed this patch and some comments by people who have the game.

    Basically they are saying that the same graphics engine was used as in COD4 but the graphics are sub par, apparently Treyarch has developed this one (not the usual studio) and the comments on Fileshack by it's user are saying they have made a poor copy of COD4.

    I'll wait for some reviews but I am really dissapointed, I was expecting something good :(

    EDIT: a COD6 is also in the works

    Well I'm sorta on home turf here so felt obliged to comment :p

    I've been a CoD player since version 1 and have enjoyed them all but not necessarily to the same extent.

    To set the record straight as it were :

    Activision hold the CoD franchise and they pass it to studios to develop each version. To date it has gone as follows :

    CoD 1 - InfinityWard
    CoDUO - Treyarch
    CoD2 - InfinityWard
    CoD3 (console only) - Treyarch
    CoD4 - InfinityWard
    CoD5 - Treyarch

    CoD6 was announced a whil back and will be developed by InfinityWard again. Various rumours on this that it may go futuristic but diehard fans hope not.

    As far as CoD5 is concerned I welcome the return to the WWII arena and the patch coming out right at the start was well publicised in advance and has been welcomed by the majority of CoD gamers.

    You can read my blog about it here and you will find more in the forums here..

    All "official" announcements are at www.callofduty.com

    Cool

    Have you notice the good ones were made by Infinity Ward? It's like when one of the Splintercells went to some French joint and it was crap.

    I liked COD4 and COD2.

    Not tried it, no.

    Have I tried others - yes :

    MoH (but Airborne sucked as they really made a hash of that - i.e. having to turn off my quad core to run it !!!)
    Battlefield series - couldn't get on with it
    Company of Heroes - again, not my thing

    Gimme plain old vanilla CoD and I'm a happy bunny !

    Very relaxing after a stressful day to run around shooting ! :biggrin

    End War is more a C&C type game but its all voice commands very easy to pickup and the online games are electric, got to think fast or the Americans will just nuke you lol

    So I just bought CoD:WAW for the xbox and I've got to say that it is an amazing game. I don't know why people were complaining but I am definitely loving it. The graphics are very similar to the previous game but still, it doesn't matter, it is still a great game. Just awesome.

    I usually trust IGN for reviews they have given it 9.2 so it must be pretty good
