Call of Duty: WWII – Review

Going back to their roots with Call of Duty: WWII was a huge gamble for Sledgehammer Games but it seems to have paid off. The campaign is stellar, the Nazi Zombie experience is as fun as ever and the multiplayer suite is a great time with friends. The campaign is set in the European Theatre…
