Sadly the World at War beta was taken off line earlier today. Lets hope the servers that they are preparing, will stand up to the initial beasting they will receive later on this week.

Ive been impressed so far.
Maps seem larger, more real and atmospheric. Varied cover, scenery and thought has resulted in some engaging games.

There seems to be a decent spread of weapons with potential. With a couple of favorites already emerging in the form of the Garand sniper and scoped semi rifles.

Touches like the shell shock from artillery and the MG42 echo all seem to be steps in the right direction. However, it will take a great deal more to tear me away from COD4 on a permanent basis.
