Has Call of Duty: WW2 been improved by its updates?

After so many Warfares of the Modern, Advanced, and Totally Wacky variety, there was something comforting about Call of Duty going back to World War 2. Playing Call of Duty: WW2’s multiplayer mode now, nine months after launch, is like slipping on an old boot — albeit a boot covered in mud, masonry dust, and the blood of tens of millions of people.

Feature: "War is a fun hell"

Call of Duty is unlikely to get WWII “right”

“Those who do not learn from from history, are doomed to make another World War II videogame.” A famous saying, and one we all know well. So when Activision hosted a live presentation for the reveal trailer of their latest shooter, Call of Duty: WWII [official site], I watched and felt nothing but a tired wave of low-burning resentment for everyone involved. During this presentation…

Editorial: It’s great news that Call Of Duty is returning to World War 2

If the rumours are true, and they most likely are, this year we'll be seeing Call Of Duty: WWII. People have reacted with concern, but I'm here to argue it's the best possible news. There was a time when learning a game was set in World War II was deserving of the heaviest of sighs. Not only did it mean that it would be one…

Have You Played… Call of Duty 2?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. Call of Duty 2 [official site] tends to get forgotten about, sandwiched as it is between the huge success of Call of Duty and the truly gargantuan success of Call of Duty 4 (we don’t talk about Call of Duty 3 here in…

Have You Played… Brothers In Arms: Road To Hill 30

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. Like Graham, I’ve always felt bad for the Brothers In Arms series of games. The WWII shooter was well into its fatigue stage by the time these games got around to doing something intelligent with it. Rocking up to the beaches of Normandy…

Call Of Fruity: Aubergine Warfare

This morning I have been documenting a fruit and vegetable market in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. I think I was supposed to be rescuing a president or something but the shiny fruit looked more interesting. I don't mean that as a sick burn or anything. I just got distracted by some nice fruit.

Call Of Duty: Back To The Beginning

I am a very Modern Woman. And by that I mean I have only played Call of Duty [official site] campaigns from Modern Warfare 2 onwards. But this year, instead of picking up Black Ops 3 and despairing over the sheer number of gadgets and grenades I must remember, I went back to the very beginning (a very good place to start). I am working…

RPS Discusses: Which Is The Best Level In PC Gaming?

Level 28! No, the other kind of level. The type that you run around in, shooting people or jumping on their heads and that sort of thing. Adam, Alec, Alice and Graham gather to discuss their favourite levels and/or maps from across the vast length of PC gaming, including selections from Deus Ex, Call of Duty and Quake III. Someone even makes a case for…

The Missing Conflict: How Call Of Duty’s Stories Went Awry

Here's the thing. The Call Of Duty modern campaigns really don't need to be dreadful. I think, after so many ugly, stupid attempts, there's a perception that it's just the way it is, the limits of the genre, the best you can hope for. And this simply isn't true. Sadly it isn't the case for the latest release, and I think I know why. There's…

Everyone Was Thinking It: Cod Of Duty

Call of Duty: Black Ops. CODBLOPS. BLOPS. COD. Cod. Heh, that's a fish. This is the exact process every human brain goes through upon trying to create an acronym for Activision's record-obliterating mega-blockbuster, so it's only natural that someone would eventually convert that lush, meaningful imagery back into a game. Thus, I bring you Cod of Duty. The basic premise? Evil fish terrorists are planning... something.…

Ex-Call Of Duty Head On Business Vs Innovation

Recently, I got the chance to play a few matches of upcoming browser-based F2P multiplayer shooter Offensive Combat, and all told, I had a nice enough time. I ran, I jumped, I beat a man to death with a hunk of ham. Everything - a basic array of weapons, modes, experience unlocks, etc - functioned pretty much exactly as it was supposed to. Problem is,…

Call Of Duty Online Is An Online Call Of Duty Game

Amazingly, 'Call of Duty Online' didn't actually exist before now. They're surely the most inevitable word-sequence in the world, after all. Even so, "free to play micro transaction first person action game" CODO isn't for us. It's one of those bally China-only games that exist to cater towards a community that is even more steeped in internetiness than Western gamers are, and more to the…

CODBLOPS 2 Does Modernish Warfare

Call of Duty 9: Black Ops 2: Modern Warfare 4 was rumoured to exist but if you're anything like me, you'll be flabbergasted to hear that the series is indeed continuing and the website for the game is now live, although the trailer that takes centre stage doesn't work just yet. It's apparently due to be premiered (red carpet?) this evening during the NBA Playoffs.…

Call of Whoopsie: Modern Warfare 3 Spoilt?

Someone's getting a) bollocked b) fired c) executed tonight, I'm sure. If Kotaku's sources are right, basically everything about this year's Call of Duty has just been blown wide open and revealed to John Q. Public some six months before likely release. It's Modern Warfare 3 and it's...

Call Of Duty: Project Collossus In November?

Eurogamer are throwing caution to the wind, babies out with bathwater, and quite possible, down, by announcing that they keep hearing rumours of Call Of Duty's next release due on 8th November 2011. While Activision has yet to announce this year's inevitable blockbuster best-seller Christmas smash hit, everyone's expecting one, and expecting it to come from the rubbled remains of Infinity Ward. And according to…
