Background/summary: This World War II first person shooter game released in November of 2008.
The game is a highly anticipated sequel in the famed Call of Duty series that has already made four
very successful games, including the most recent Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, which made monu-
mental strides in weaponry, combat technology, and Internet multiplayer gaming. The rating on World
at War by the ESRB is “Mature,” due to graphic shooting violence. Nevertheless, this game proves to
be a big hit amongst players of all ages, as evidenced by the near-constant 100,000+ gamers playing
the Xbox Live online multiplayer at any given time.
