Review: Call of Duty: WWII

November 07, 2017 1 min read

Activision's billion-dollar franchise Call of Duty has hit a crossroads. After over a decade of releases, the military shooter has traversed through World War II, contemporary Middle-Eastern conflict, the horrors of 'Nam, a United States invasion, and ultimately into the great infinite of outer space.

Where now? Once the trapeze artist has mastered four flips, blindfolded, over a flaming pit of alligators, where does their act go next? Activision, having equipped its soldiers with jet-boots, matter-destroying weaponry, satellite fire and explosive-laden drones, has hit the wall. There's little option but to return to the series roots: the blood, mud and misery of World War II.

Will winding back the clock to conflicts - and games - past give Call of Duty a healthy shove into its own future, or is the franchise merely retreading a worn path all over again? Switch out your Titan Energy Rifle for a rusted M1 Garand and let's find out.
