Same here, the campaign for this is boring..United offensive is the best COD campaign ever

This game really shined for the multiplayer features. The campaign wasn't particularly great.

no gears! how could you let this pass you!

agreed with nathan
nathantay (on 12 February 2010)
I really enjoyed WaW and think that it's better than Modern Warfare. 8.5/10
zzyoshiman (on 05 December 2009)
sell 6 million world wide at end of the year

It passed Gears of War.
deathgod33 (on 30 August 2009)
@geddesmond2, IW might have took bits and pieces from other games, i know they didnt invent perks, etc, but the entire MP experience put together is their own and Treyarch basically copied the whole thing- which is good because they suck at making MP's.
but then pleez don't say "Treyarch did a fantastic job with the multiplayer" it makes no sense
and btw, i've owned every single Call of Duty game (the main ones)
geddesmond2 (on 29 August 2009)
@ deathgod33.

Oh yeah like in COD 3. Oh wait 3 does come before 4 right?

Its annoying when people start playing a franchise half ways through and assume that Infinity Ward created the whole multiplayer experiance
deathgod33 (on 17 August 2009)
people need to stop giving treyarch credit for the online its annoying.

anyways, game was alright 5/10

@ shinyuhadouken:

I hope you mean by the end of the financial year, because it'll be far closer to 5m by the end of the calender year.
shinyuhadouken (on 18 May 2009)
4 mill in the US by the end of the year.

CoD 4 > W@W
piggychan (on 09 April 2009)
somehow i cant see this going down well in japan..
so it probably wont be released.
imran_nxt (on 02 April 2009)
Anybody know when this game is coming out in japan?
mundurden (on 01 April 2009)
Multiplayer is pretty sweet, comparable to COD4, imho. BUT no game has ever pissed me off more than the single-player on this game. Garbage...
RockSmith372 (on 01 April 2009)

for starters it's a year younger so ya it will sell better at this moment, but it's not by much right now.
monlosez (on 31 March 2009)
me and my friend play 4 instead of 5 even though we both got 5.
Agamemnon862 (on 26 March 2009)
Selling faster than COD4!
mjc2021 (on 17 March 2009)
This isn't my favorite CoD but still a great game.
Smeags (on 17 March 2009)
Not just regular zombies. Nazi Zombies.

Awesome. :-D

matt247 (on 12 March 2009)
I wonder if the demo will help sales
haxxiy (on 02 March 2009)
Outselling Gears 2.
Barozi (on 28 February 2009)
Ha I knew It can't beat the great legs of CoD4
Shadowfest3 (on 09 February 2009)
I only play this game for multi-player online. I enjoy this game. Of course I haven't played CoD 4 so I can't compare the two.
toastboy44562 (on 04 February 2009)
This game is great!
Nightmare24 (on 04 February 2009)
this game is terrible and this game shouldnt have these sales too
jagenjg (on 02 February 2009)
I have this Game as of 2/1/2009, and I am not that impressed yet. I only got it cause my friends had it and wanted to all play together in co-op. I like Modern Warfare and Gears 2 a little better personally. If you are going to get a CoD game get CoD 4.
famousringo (on 30 January 2009)
This game blows a huge hole in the received wisdom that people are sick of WWII shooters.
cochise313 (on 27 January 2009)
i didn't think this would sell well at all
Loud_Hot_White_Box (on 25 January 2009)
This game is selling well..I was wondering whether it would flop relative to 4. Is anyone surprised the 360 version is outselling Gears 2?
toastboy44562 (on 18 January 2009)
this is a good game, not gears good though...
dsister44 (on 15 January 2009)
this game is not that good buy viva pinata instead
MrBirdTurd (on 14 January 2009)
Call of duty 4 was such a better game its not even funny. But its still pretty good but I really just think the IW call of dutys are much better all around. Im kinda mad this passed gears 2 in sales but what can you do I think the call of duty games have always been more main stream anyway. I Hope COD 4 beats this game in the long run sales wise since it was the better game IMO, and I hope the people who bough COD 4 will come back for Modern Warfare 2 as well as the people who bought this one.
slipknot01299 (on 14 January 2009)
going to surpass halo 3 soon.
danno_omen (on 10 January 2009)
Obviously Halo 3 will outsell the COD games,Halo has been and always will be the main attraction for Xbox.I didnt really like Halo much,but it still is the main seller,and probably always will be.
godemperor (on 08 January 2009)
going to surpass gears 2 soon...
GLoRySoGLoRy (on 07 January 2009)
wow impressive sales.
erikers (on 06 January 2009)
Even though Modern Warfare won't ever pass Halo 3 in sales head to head and neither will World At War. Great point Omega. If you're adding the 5 versions of World At War together or the 3 versions of Modern Warfare, realize if Halo 3 was on every platform, it would still sell more.

In June 08 (7 months after release) Activision announced they had sold 10 million worldwide over all consoles. In January 08 (3 months after release) Microsoft announced Halo 3 had sold 8.1 million copies worldwide. It barely beats Halo on 3+ platforms so wake me when a game beats it head to head.
OmegaRugalv3 (on 04 January 2009)
More over Halo ... CoD seems to have taken over the FPS crown in terms of selling power.
Barozi (on 04 January 2009)
I must say I never thought it would have a chance of getting more sales than CoD 4, but it definitely has !
PlayerX (on 27 December 2008)
Wow Activision is making money hand over fist.
c0rd (on 26 December 2008)
Didn't really want to support this game, but $35 at Best Buy?

... Oh well!
toastboy44562 (on 26 December 2008)
awesome game!
kopstudent89 (on 23 December 2008)
i know reaaaally crazy its outpacing COD4... but i dont think it will quite have the same legs though... still amazing sales nonetheless
Egghead (on 23 December 2008)
This is actually selling better than CoD4, crazy stuff
arsenal009 (on 21 December 2008)
Why do new games that make the million sellers list not show the publisher?
toastboy44562 (on 20 December 2008)
wow good sales!
toastboy44562 (on 19 December 2008)
gears 2's campain is way better though...
MontanaHatchet (on 19 December 2008)
This game will definitely pass up Gears 2, and it deserves it for the superior online.
terry_tibbs (on 19 December 2008)
i doubt this will pass gears of war sales, cod modern warfare 2 will sell much more than this.
mrstickball (on 19 December 2008)
What's amazing is that World At War stands a good chance of passing Gears of War 2 at some point..

People must really like their First Person games over their Third Person games :-\
craighopkins (on 13 December 2008)
Halo 3>COD4>COD5
Phoenix_Wiight (on 10 December 2008)
its easy- people despise Halo so much for being such a popular game yet its so average. The games system is very very fluent, it works really well, and on top of that, it's quite a lot of fun online, but that's about it. The story is far from amazing, there are no gripping characters, etc. The game deserves most of its sales, but not its scores.
MrBirdTurd (on 03 December 2008)
Right halo is a joke. Halo was a revolution it brought the console fps's into the present day and made them what we all know and love there would not even be a regenerating health bar without halo. There would be no Call of duty at all so please show some respect for one of the best games of all time you can say that you don't like it but it's not a joke at all and never will be. But again show respect man.
Picko (on 03 December 2008)
@ OmegaRugalv3:

The percentage of 360 owners who are also PS3 owners would be remarkably small. Most people simply don't have that kind of money.

Being on a second console will do very little to reduce CoD's sales on the 360. It quite literally sells less than Halo 3 because it doesn't quite have that games appeal.
OmegaRugalv3 (on 02 December 2008)
CoD will have trouble outselling Halo on the 360 alone not due to lack of appeal but because you have people who own a PS3 aswell and decided to buy it for the PS3 instead.

When you have a game on more than one system ... it hurts the sales of THAT one praticular system a bit, but helps with overall sales of course.
CrunkE4 (on 02 December 2008)
Halo is a joke and so is bungie

Why do some people despise Halo so much?
xboxisthebeststopps3 (on 01 December 2008)
ok 2nd of all ur whack and cod is not better than halo
MrBirdTurd (on 01 December 2008)
This is a good game for sure but I really liked Call of duty 1,2 and 4 better.
So for me it goes like this:

xboxisthebeststopps3 (on 30 November 2008)
i got cod5 its hot but halo 3 is a way better game.
FaRmLaNd (on 29 November 2008)
I hate to break it to you, but no call of duty game will likely ever outsell a main entry into the halo series on the xbox. I'm not talking about quality here (as they're both comparable) but in terms of mainstream appeal to xbox owners halo is strides ahead of call of duty. Which is reflected in its sales. Not that Cod 4 didn't put up one hell of an impressive fight.
Damstr8 (on 29 November 2008)
this is call of duty 4 with m1 grands
Barozi (on 29 November 2008)
Whatever helps you sleep at night ^^

SmokedHostage (on 29 November 2008)
When I say Activision I mean anything they publish, whether its developed by IW or Treyarch. Then again it's not fair..
Barozi (on 29 November 2008)
1st: Why do you compare publishers with developers ?
2nd: So you think Treyarch >>>>> Bungie ? Don't make me laugh.
SmokedHostage (on 28 November 2008)
I apologize.. I just hope this outsells Halo by a million. Activision >>>>> Bungie.
halogamer1989 (on 28 November 2008)
Great game. BONZAIIIIII!!!!!
blazinhead89 (on 28 November 2008)
OMG at smoked hostage, awesome sales for PS3/360 Particularly great for 360, can't be said about the Wii. I'm not even a fan of Microsoft by i can still see your trolling because of poor COD waw Wii sales
SmokedHostage (on 26 November 2008)
Hey Hey Hey! I expecting 3 million.. not 2.15 million.
Esa-Petteri (on 26 November 2008)
A nintendo-fan saying CoD:WaW 360 sold poorly.. now I have seen it all.
FaRmLaNd (on 25 November 2008)
This game was never going to have a bigger opening week then halo 3...
MontanaHatchet (on 24 November 2008)
Smoked, you know this is a losing argument, right?
SmokedHostage (on 24 November 2008)
Personally, I was expecting a bigger release than Halo 3. It's by no means bad though.
erikers (on 24 November 2008)

This game debuted to higher first week sales on 360 and PS3 over COD 4. I see you check your facts well.
SmokedHostage (on 23 November 2008)
This game sold fairly poorly in its first week, considering that CoD4 has the title of Halo Killer. I guess once you got Iraq, you don't come... err go back.
SaviorX (on 21 November 2008)
Well, Treyarch made their money back pretty quickly.
arsenal89 (on 21 November 2008)
Awesome debut.
mrstickball (on 20 November 2008)
Beastly. 1.3m opening should equate to no less than 4m units sold. Could even hit 5 million.
toastboy44562 (on 20 November 2008)
you said the same about call of duty 4 last year lol
MontanaHatchet (on 20 November 2008)
Quick and easy million seller.
I LOVE GIGGS (on 19 November 2008)
~250k in UK alone!!
maybe 500k in Others ?

I LOVE GIGGS (on 15 November 2008)
First week WW : 650k-750k
toastboy44562 (on 13 November 2008)
I'm gettin this for christmas
edvedd2110 (on 05 November 2008)
Good to hear the mp beta is rockin....I know people have been hating on this game because its not being made by the cod4 folks, but I just saw an awesome commercial for this game and it looks great...hopefully its got all the fun of number 4 and then some....We'll see if it can get the same sales as 4, but my prediction is it will sell well, but not as good. It will have good legs, but the holiday market is so packed this year for both hd consoles....don't know how i would feel playing this on the wii
TankCommando (on 30 October 2008)
The multi-player beta is pretty rockin' so far.
coolestguyever (on 28 October 2008)
i have it on pre-order. Can't wait for it to come out.
