Activision's Call of Duty: World at War brings the franchise back to World War II and introduces Japanese campaigns, flame throwers, and four-player online co-op. Tom's Games gets a hands-on preview of World at War's multiplayer modes.

It'll probably be Treyarchs best cod game for sure. But that's about it. There seems to be a bigger fan base for modern shooters than futuristic and historic shooters nowadays. I'm all in for the coop mode however, if my friends decide they want to coop cod5. That would be the only reason I'd buy it.

However in my opinion, the coop lovers and friends will be headed to left 4 dead.

I loved playing Left 4 Dead at E3. Great co-op action. I think CoD5's co-op might be almost as good. It shares some similarities with Left 4 Dead, too -- the healing teammate mechanic, the emphasis on ambushes, strong level design, etc.

I was quite skeptical at first as well, but I have love what I have seen and heard so far, so I am getting excited for it. I have pre-ordered and paid it off in full a gamestop. Now I am just waitin for it to get here.
