Call of Duty: World at War: Final Fronts is the Playstation 2 version of Call of Duty: World at War. It has its own set of missions exclusive to the PS2 version involving the U.S. fighting in the Pacific theater and the Battle of the Bulge in Europe, as well as the British advancing on the Rhine River into Germany. This version has a grand total of 13 missions, and no online multiplayer. It was created by Activision and Rebellion. Final Fronts was panned by critics, and is critically the worst received Call of Duty game to date.
Story Mode Edit
The first mission shows the player how to play the game and introduces some of the characters. The training mission itself acts as a go-between for learning to use the controls, and introducing the setting of the game, as the training mission cuts short, resulting in the player going to war. Players fight as Pvt. Joe Miller of the 2nd Marine Division, Pvt. Lucas Gibson of the 80th Infantry Division, Gunner Sgt. Alex McCall of the 4th Armored Division, and Pvt. Tom Sharpe of the 6th Airborne Division, facing enemies that employ lethal new tactics and know no fear, no mercy, nor the rules of war.
Game Features Edit
Call of Duty: World At War: Final Fronts uses its own physics engine, as opposed to the engine in World at War, due to the processing power of the Playstation 2. Final Fronts graphics are similar to other 6th Generation Call of Duty games. As well as this, the menu systems, character models and fonts are all similar. However, reviewers have heavily criticized Final Fronts' graphics and sound. Many have described it as below PS2 standards. The game's sound is similar as to what is heard in World at War and Call of Duty 3. Kiefer Sutherland lends his voice to Sgt. Roebuck once again, recording new dialogue, and there are many other voice talents used from World at War, such as Polonsky's and Sullivan's. The shouts and screams of enemies are also re-used, which gives the game a feel of continuity within the series. Guns such as the M1 Thompson, M1 Garand and Type 100 also return.
