Classic Game Room presents a CGR Undertow review of Call of Duty: World at War for the Nintendo DS developed by n-Space and published by Activision.
Call of Duty: World at War is a first-person shooter released for many platforms in 2008. The game tells an intersecting story of three soldiers during World War II. The gameplay is similar across all platforms, but the Nintendo DS version is unique for its touch controls. Players move their character with the directional pad, but aiming is handled with the stylus. Similar to Metroid Prime Hunters, dragging the stylus on the touch screen moves your reticule on the top screen. It's a more fast and accurate way to play shooters, despite the tendency to cause hand cramps. Call of Duty: World at War has single and multiplayer play on the Nintendo DS, and despite the weaker hardware, the 3D environments look surprisingly good.
This video review features video gameplay footage of Call of Duty: World at War for the Nintendo DS and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's Derek.
Before I could afford a PS3 and all I had was a DS, I played through COD 4 Modern Warfare. Boy! When I beat that game, my hands were killing me and I had to go get them massaged for true relief. But, it filled the gap until I could get a PS3 and the first game I got for that was COD 4 Modern Warfare. The multi player alone was worth the buy and I spent hours getting to level 55 and then prestige. For the DS version, all you could do was wireless link to another DS and it was you versus the person in the same room with you running around trying to kill each other. World At war used the same setup and controls as Modern Warfare. Again, this filled the gap till I could get better. But, the payoff was extremely hurt hands.
COD Black ops was a hard one to get use to but, this one looks awesome! A lot like golden eye did. I need to add this to my collection now and its 2017 yikes! Just goes to show don't need graphics to have a great and fun game :)
The thing is, that DS has three important advantages:
1. You can still clearly see the top screen without having it obscured by your finger
2. It still has physical controls, like the dpad for movement and triggers on the back. It kind of even feels more like playing on a laptop with a touchpad
3. The DS has better games than mobile devices
So let me advertise this game to you in another way:
Hey, do you like playing on your laptop (let's say you answer is yes, even if it wouldn't be)?
Well, we just removed most of the laptops buttons, but left the wasd (dpad) and a few other buttons.
We made the laptop smaller and lighter so you can carry it right inside your pocket and we also made the touchpad show information and added additional functionality to it
If you don't like using a touch screen to play, I totally understand you, but imo a DS is much better than a cellphone
what do you mean because it is confirmed that nintendo are going to make powerful consoles again, m8 it was proven by the 3ds (especially the new 3ds) and when some leader guy from nintendo saying he wants a "gamers console" and to make more powerful consoles. so cod on the "nx" would be awesome
personally i disliked the controlls mainly for the aiming aspect... i like to ads but i was forced to play mostly hipfire all the way through
they felt clunky but at the same time were simple so not a big issue
as far as graphics
even for the ds... pretty meh... they tried too hard to make it look realistic that it came out like a bad quake mod... ntm the colour pallet is mainly grey pixles so enemies farther than point blank are an annoyance
it had multiplayer which is good for what it's worth
i feel like its a good game but you gave it a bit too much praise.
This was the first Call of Duty game (of ANY platform) that I ever got. I got it maybe 5 or 6 years ago from now (2016). I still have it an occasional if I'm bored I whip it out and played. I agree the graphics are amazing for the DS, and it's a very fun game to play. You could be playing the regular World at War on PC and then get off and hop on to some WaW DS.
i wonder if kids were like this back then Hey DOOD i got the new call of duty waw on my ds (other friend)COOL (other other friend) OMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMG the graphics cant get bette rthan this now there like hey bruh i got the new bo3 on my xbox one lol its changed
I think people should just Shut the fuck up about GayBox or FailStation Controllers and Graphics. You guys won't even shut the fuck about keyboard and mouse! Mostly all of you retards won't just shut the fuck about the ds sucking! I just can't stand the retardedness of having to see all this stupid shit about AssCube and FailStation. Just shut the fuck about having the ds a Dick-Screen.
It must be said battle front two on the psp has some of the best handheld first/third person shooter controls. It uses the l and button in a context sensitive way, and the d pad to switch weapons and use your scope, it uses the face buttons for camera movement/looking depending what view point your using, when in first person mode it makes everything so precise.
I got the last model where everything was pretty well built except the start and select buttons, they were under a plastic cover so eventually the start button slid out and I was left with a barely usable psp. Although I did pick up the 3000 which I owned for about 6 months before trading it in for a vita.
+Homer sams Yeah that game was great, I always used the advance controls though which used the face buttons for movement, then the thumb stick was just for aiming. Too bad the PSP itself was built so poorly, everyone I know who owned one has had it fail on them, some have even had more then one fail. I never dropped mine or anything, and after only two years, the casing was cracked, one of the hinges on the disk tray had broken, and the unit stayed in the button lock mode no matter which position the power switch was in. Those UMDs were crap too, dust would get into that little slot made for the reader, but not come out again, so my disks got scratched just from playing them!
Have been thinking about getting a 1000 model though, they felt a little sturdier then the 2000, and then I would just hack it and download ROMs of all the games I want.
+Sebastian Wesolowski chill the f out if you are like me you will want something different soon i lost my pc and now havent played pc for a long time and now im gettin a friggin ps4 ( and also i have a dsi )
+Kvng Spaz I think you're saying this because it's what you're most comfortable using. Which is fine. But it doesn't entirely come down to what one is used to. When it comes down to precision and mechanics, the DS touchpad is as precise as a mouse. Which, for first person shooters, is what will allow you the ease of aiming. So he's not at all stupid, given how imprecise thumb sticks actually are.
