Well, it has a rock-solid foundation, for starters. The game has been built using the Call of Duty 4 engine, so expect the same cinematic visuals and tight control of CoD4. You'll really see it in action with the likes of the flamethrower, which adds fire into the mix as a new dynamic to play around with.
Treyarch has also gone back to the war that made the Call of Duty series famous - the big one, WWII. Rather than tread the same old battlefields, however, players will be thrust into the muddied boots of Russian and American soldiers on multiple fronts. A heavy emphasis has been put on the Pacific Theatre, meaning players will have to take on Japanese soldiers deploying kamikaze attacks, ambush tactics and Banzai charges. Piling into rooms to blast the hell out of all and sundry has been exchanged for the sweaty trials found in ploughing through the undergrowth in jungle warfare.
The world needs you for fighting duties again. Time to step up.
