Activision's Call of Duty series has always been immensely popular. The Infinity Ward editions (Call of Duty 1, 2 and 4) are the more critically acclaimed versions. Regardless, Treyarch's efforts always sell well and boast the same sort of gameplay and thrills of their brothers. World at War is no different, but visit back to World War II gives us the chance to enjoy some nostalgic moments (as well as some fresh ones) from the series' past.

There are two campaigns, the USA in the Far East where you play as a Pvt. Miller, and the Russians on their invasion into western Germany. These are merged into one set of missions so you switch from one perspective to another on the other side of the globe.

The gameplay is very simple. There are no difficult decisions to be made though there are more frequent choices of routes than in previous instalments in the series. On Hardened or Veteran difficulties, finding the best cover points in each section is crucial. In certain sections the enemies will pile towards you until you move forwards, and choosing the best path through in order to do this is vital. It is for this purpose that the single player portion of this guide will come in handy. There are also 'Death Cards'. This deck of playing cards identified in game by a helmet balancing on a pole can be used to unlock cheats, a list of which (complete with movies of their locations) you can find in the 'Death Cards' section later on in this guide. Upon completing the game, there is a new game mode unlocked called Nazi Zombies. This is playable in co-op split-screen and online, and is a great feature to have as a reward. All the campaign missions that are playable in co-operative mode are marked as such at the start of their section.

Here's a tip for natch der untoten or however its spelled. Ok. So once you open the mystery box room go buy the thompson and have everyone in the lobby do it (unless its just you of course) but the thompson is a very good gun for point racking, so you could get that beautiful raygun everyone wants in a zombies game. Keep the thompson until bout round 15. then its time to get a different gun. Its up to you to when you get rid of the gun. Here's a tip. on the first round maybe the second to shoot the zombie in the leg 8 times and then knife it. This will help you rack up points on any zombies game. on natch der untoten open the door on round 5 at least. this will help you build up points easier. buy the m11 carbine or whatever its called and use that. ik its not the best gun in the world but it helps kill the zombies on the low rounds. Hope you liked my tips and tricks for zombies. peace

you need two players,the corner where you get the carbine behind those boxes is a corner.(either you or your friend)can lie down and (you or your friend)have jump on top of (him or her.)and stand must VERY still but can still turn.(you can do this glitch many times.) (NO zombies hurt YOU.)

i know how to get not beeten on nazi zombies . when you start at Natch Der Untoten get back . there is a hole on the wall . go back and run and jump on it and press B fast then you are in the wall and the zombies cant beet you.(downt use raygun . if you do you die with the zombies-only bullet)and dont let the zombies get so close to you in the round 4 or 5 or 6 or... if they do they can hit you.(if you use machine gun the glitch works nice and easy)

On little resistance i know a secret to get the Raygun and i will share it with you

1) after sullivan saves you call in an air strike on the impereals go to the right side of the map and there will be a puddle go in it for 3-5 seconds.

2)start to go left of the map then there will be a second puddle stay in there 3-4 seconds(again).

3) there will be a puddle without water DONT GO IN IT!!! go over it and then start to go left you will see a bigger puddle stay in it for 3-5 seconds wait a little while (30) seconds then a weird alein voice starts talking and lions will come out of the ground the Rayguns will be in there mouth.
