Ultimately, Zombies is a great port of the extremely successful survival game found in Call of Duty: World at War. The lack of content, high price point, and occasional connection issues with the servers keep it from our highest rating, but don’t let that stop you from buying this if you are a fan.

All the elements of first-class zombie horror are beautifully incorporated into Call of Duty: World at War: Zombies, which more than earns its six quid (or ten bucks, if you prefer). The promise of additional downloadable maps is the icing on this deliciously rotting cake, making it an essential game for hardcore players, FPS junkies and CoD fans.
One of the coolest things about Call of Duty: World at War: Zombies is that it features multiplayer gaming, both local and online (WiFi only, no phone network play). To start, you can either create a new account or link your game to an existing Call of Duty online account. Multiplayer games
can have up to four players and make killing zombies much easier since you can watch each others back. You'll also be able to show off your zombie slaying stats through the online leaderboards. You might experience laggy gameplay depending on your settings and the last time you rebooted your iPhone
. There's a handy troubleshooting and help section online at www.codwaw.com/Zombies. Overall, zombie games are definitely an acquired taste, but those who are willing to shell out $10 know exactly what they're getting into. Fans of the genre will definitely love this app.
The biggest shortcoming in this version of the game is the amount of content you get. With only one map available, there will never be much variation in your strategy. However, with dozens of achievements up for grabs and online leaderboards to compete on, there's definitely some replay value here. World at War: Zombies is a great port of the extremely successful multiplayer mode from Call of Duty: World at War. The lack of content, high price point, and occasional connection issues with the servers are somewhat disappointing, but gunning zombies with your buddies is still a blast.
Overall, Call of Duty: World at War: Nazi Zombies is an attractive and immensely entertaining app that is hopefully a small taste of what'll come from Activision in the future. We already know that the publisher plans to release new maps, so be on the lookout. In the meantime, don't hesitate to download this bloody action game. The asking price is a bit steep ($9.99 for one map) and the action gets repetitive, but you'll definitely get your monies worth, especially if you battle alongside other iPhone users.
All in all, CoD: Zombies is an extremely well put together, although short experience. The controls are on the cusp of being perfect for the genre, the graphics and sound are top notch, and the online gameplay is definitely a glimpse into what iPhone FPS multiplayer will be like. It’s not perfect though, and once again, it is extremely short, particularly for a game at its current $10 price point. I’d personally wait until the price comes down a bit before I pick this one up, but if you either love zombies or Call of Duty, you won’t be too disappointed.
$9.99 may seem a tad bit excessive for an iPhone game and the premise of paying more to have access to anything other than the starting map is a bit discouraging, but the development team at Ideaworks3D have created a pretty decent FPS on a platform that just doesn’t allow for it to get any better. That doesn’t mean its perfect, it just means the developers have created a game without recognizing it shouldn’t be done on Apple’s portable.
Si l'on prend plaisir à massacrer des zombies avec les doigts pendant quelques minutes, le manque de contenu ne tarde pas à se faire sentir. Un seul niveau, un multi pas toujours tip top et un prix bien trop élevé font de ce Call of Duty : World at War : Zombies une grosse déception. Dommage.
