"Call of Duty: World at War" & "Call of Duty: Final Fronts"

"Call of Duty: World at War is a 2008 first-person shooter video game developed by Treyarch and published by Activision.  It was released for Microsoft Windows, the PlayStation 3, Wii and Xbox 360 in November 2008.  It is the fifth main installment of the Call of Duty series and returns the setting to World War IIWorld at War received ports featuring different storyline versions, while remaining in the World War II setting, for the Nintendo DS and PlayStation 2.  It was the first game in the series to feature the zombies mode featured in later sequels.  A Windows Mobile version was also made available by Glu Mobile.  The narrative for the campaign mode focuses on the Pacific and Eastern Front theaters of World War II, involving the United States, Empire of Japan, Soviet Union, and Nazi Germany.  It is told from the perspectives of Marine Raider Private C. Miller, US Navy Petty Officer Locke and Red Army soldier Private Dimitri Petrenko, and is based on several historical battles.  In Final Fronts, the player takes on the role of a U.S. Marine in the Pacific campaign, and both British and American soldiers in the two European campaigns.  The Pacific-based campaign sees Private Joe Miller alongside soldiers Sergeant Roebuck and Private Polonsky, fight their way through Japanese defenses in Guadalcanal, Betio, Saipan, and Okinawa.  A major difference in this campaign, compared to other releases of World at War, is the fact that both Roebuck and Polonsky survive the final battle at Okinawa.  The European campaigns have three protagonists: Private Tom Sharpe of the British 6th Airborne Division, Private Lucas Gibson of the U.S. 80th Infantry Division, and Gunnery Sergeant Alex McCall who is featured in one tank mission.  This set of missions sees the Americans and British move to relieve the city of Bastogne, and features the 6th Airborne Division capture the town of Wesel during Operation Varsity, as well as the Americans taking over Adolf Hitler's birthplace, Braunau am Inn in Austria so check out the trailers below!

Great stuff,
