Great online play and HD graphics

I set a New Year's resolution to become  a gamer. It is a goal that I have set for the last couple of years, but unfortunately I didn't invest the time needed to become proficient. I bought a PS3 late last year and in my annual zeal to improve myself I bought Call of Duty:World at War in January.

I was stunned by the smooth and crisp graphics. On my HD TV, you can see details perfectly and get an immersive experience. I had played earlier PC versions where there was some jerkiness and jagged graphics - that is all gone. The online gaming experience is also dramatically improved. With nearly 30k to 90k people online all the time, game finding is fast and easy. Players with slower connections don't bog down the game play. I've only seen one player drop from a bad connection in all of my games. Also, the PS3 VoIP is clear and easy to set up. I used the same Bluetooth headset I use for my cell phone.

I occasionally tire of the long mission intros during online game play. They are great the first time to get the context of the mission, but need to be skipped after that. Unfortunately, there is no way to skip them when playing online so you have to wait three or four minutes to start playing.

When you find someone online that you enjoy playing with, it is easy to add them as a friend and find them when they come online again. This makes it great to get into private games or buddy up.

The game has several difficulty levels so those who are newer can get into the action without too much trouble. World at War is a great game for people who enjoy first-person shooters and want to play online with others. I love the PS3 gaming experience and the story line of this game. Plus, I can learn a bit of history while I'm at it.
