Call of Duty: World at War Beta

I haven't been gaming much lately. I've been really busy in my personal and professional life(hence the lack of updates on the site). The other weekend I actually played LEGO Indiana Jones most of the weekend. I was cleaning out my e-mail the other day and what did I find? A beta code for Call of Duty: World at War.

I participated a lot in the Call of Duty 4 site and beta so I must have gotten the beta code through that. I did sign up on the World at War site when it first started, but I haven't been active at all on the site so the beta code was a bit of a surprise.

The beta clocks in at a little under 900 MB. It is a lot like Call of Duty 4. It has Perks, Classes, Challenges and Levels. The beta right now caps players at Level 11 and it doesn't take too long to reach that level.

A few things are different. Of course, first of all, the series has returned to World War II so the weapons are a little older(reloading seems to take longer). The four different armies are Russian, Germany, Japan and the US.

There are also vehicles in this game. I don't know what all are available, but I have driven a tank around. Another interesting change is dogs! Get enough kills in a row without dying and you can unleash the hounds upon the enemy. Attack dogs will run around for a minute, attacking the enemy. You can kill the dogs, but these dogs tend to swarm and can do some good damage. When I unleashed a pack today, they killed three enemies during their minute long rampage.

Sounds cool. I just got my beta code today and I'm looking forward to trying it out.

I purchased COD5 yesterday for PS3. I'm really enjoying it! I have only played the online portion. So far I'm impressed. The tanks make it interesting and the weapons are definitely a change from COD4. Reloading and firing are slower and appropiate to their time. I think the graphics are better.
What up Josh!
