The development team Trayarch presents us with a new part of the Call of Duty series of games that takes us back in time to 1945 AD in the era of World War II, today we offer you a review of the game after trying it for long hours in various phases and we quickly start talking with the game’s story and world, featuring the gameplay phase Singles with a story rich with interesting events that take place at the end of World War II, where a special team consisting of several people of different nationalities is assigned the task of searching and identifying a mysterious project owned by the Nazis under the name Project Phoenix, which raises fears about the capabilities and intentions of the Germans in this project. During the story, you will learn about the team’s characters and their past, and each person reflects his specialization in the gameplay phase. For example, when you play as Arthur Kingsley, the team leader, you will find that you are able to give orders to your team to destroy specific targets, for example, or when playing with a character specialized in military aviation, you will find yourself in the cockpit of a plane. A warship takes off from an aircraft carrier and sees the character’s point of view and his story in the past. Although the mission was very interesting and it was a change of atmosphere from the usual, the flight control was a bit heavy and slow in comprehension, which made it difficult to aim at enemy planes in the air and bring them down.

The development team provided a very good story, and not just the single-player mode for entertainment only, due to the large number of dialogues between the characters and the lengthy cinematic clips that show us the events in the story and integrated them into the gameplay phase smoothly and without lengthy loading screens in order to start playing without any waiting. Knowing that the single-player phase comes with background music in a dynamic manner that increases in intensity in violent scenes, for example, and fades after that, then tightens and changes.

In terms of technical performance, the game is very smooth, as it was running at 60 frames per second at a constant rate, and we did not find any slowdown in performance at all. Knowing that the game supports TVs capable of frequencies of 120 Hz, and this feature can be activated through the game settings options. Among the impressive features in the game Call of Duty: Vanguard is that it supports the features of the DualSense controller. For example, you can feel the weight of the trigger of the weapon when pressing the R2 button before or during shooting, it’s very clear that the Trayarch team has taken care of every detail in their new version of Call of Duty in terms of excellent graphics, a lot of explosions and high-quality effects as well, especially if you play with surround headphones that will increase your involvement in the events Full of action and excitement.

In the multiplayer phase, we had the opportunity to experience limited phases of the usual multiple phases of the game. One of the new phases is the Champion Hill Duos phase, where the players are divided into several teams consisting of two people and they have a limited amount of life for each team. The phase begins with the phase of purchasing weapons and equipment. And the ability to upgrade them for a certain time, and after the end of the period, the game will take you to a medium-sized battlefield, bearing in mind that your arena is adjacent to other arenas with other players, the challenge begins between your team and the enemy team of two people as well. And you are required to cooperate with your teammate to overcome the enemy and avoid death a lot so as not to drain all your chances and get out of the challenge completely. And it is possible to collect the money in the arena and obtain equipment or weapons of the enemy after killing him, and this is a feature similar to the battle royale games.

As mentioned earlier, the battlefield that you start in is adjacent to other arenas, which means that you are able to listen to the sounds of gunfire and the movement of other players next to you, which leads to a distraction or raise your level of tension and we found this feature exciting for sure, and after fighting several battles you will return to the stage of buying again after you have collected an amount of money and equipment to buy more or develop what you have. And you may face a problem during the purchase stage, when you open the list of equipment or weapons, you will see the name, shape of the weapon and its price only, and it seems that the description of these weapons and others is absent, as a new player you may find it difficult to choose in the buying stage because you do not know if you are buying a machine gun from An SMG or Rifle for example and we hope the Final Edition addresses this point.

And after completing the entire phase, your team’s position will appear to you, as it may have been ranked first, second, or otherwise. And certainly it was a very interesting and enthusiastic phase, as for the second phase of play, it is Tactical 24/7, where this phase depends on the team’s cooperation more strategically than the second phases, knowing that within this phase the goals of the game will change, for example, you may play the game of possession of a point called Hardpoint and when the point is moving, that is a different goal under the name of Patrol, you and your team have to seize the point and keep it from the enemy’s capture for as long as possible to get the points needed to win, and if the hardpoint is moving, this increases the degree of difficulty because you take into account That the point may pass through completely open places, which makes the game become like a tug of war, the strongest team will kill everyone and seize the point.

And we tried another goal within the phase, where it was similar to the Team Death Match phase, but in addition, when killing the enemy, the ID necklace or Dog Tags will fall from him, then you must go and pick up the necklace to calculate a point for your team, and if you did not capture it and the enemy recovered it, he prevented you from getting on that point. And this goal is called Confirmed Kill, and we noticed at this stage that it tightens the nerves most of the time because of the large number of draws between you and the enemy in the result, and also you may be terrifyingly ahead of the enemy, and in a moment the scales may turn and the enemy will win you by a difference of a point or two. The excitement of playing is very high.

The development team made drastic changes to the zombie phase in this part of Call of Duty, among the most prominent innovations they made are as follows: This phase begins with the difficulty of the zombies in the first place, and the more you kill them, the more you will get the coin for the collectibles that you will need when the difficulty of the zombies increases. And they also added several super abilities that you can choose from at the beginning of the phase that gives you a fatal blow to use when you need it, and of course, after using it, you must charge the fatal blow again by killing the zombies until it is filled up again, side information, the zombie phase will help you raise your personal rank as if you were playing a mode The normal multiplayer and the increase in the rank of weapons when you increase their use, unlike the old parts of Call of Duty in the zombie mode, where no matter what you play the phase does not change anything on your personal progress in the ranks.

Let’s continue talking about the new zombie phase, as we said in order to complete the phase and increase the difficulty of the zombies, you and your team must enter portals called Portals, and you will find them performing different tasks and in different maps, similar to the style of playing the RogueLike, as you do not know what map you will encounter and the desired goal You must achieve it within the Portal. After completing that gate, the map will expand by opening a new area after returning to it. One of the goals we noticed a recurrence of a type of play is to achieve the goal of the Patrol that we mentioned earlier, but the difference here is that instead of a moving point, you will find a moving golden head with a certain area and You must reach the end to finish the mission, at which point you will return to the main map and start increasing the difficulty of the zombies to a higher degree until you reach the fifth degree.

And at that stage, it gives you the opportunity to escape through a portal called Exfiltrate and end the stage with victory, or the team can laugh in the face of danger and resume the zombie stage to higher levels of difficulty and the emergence of monsters stronger and much fiercer and break your records, and without a doubt this the innovations gave a new breath in the zombie mode, and it became faster and more fun than before.
