Call of Duty: WWII for PlayStation 4
For a long time now, the Call of Duty series has concerned itself largely with the contemporary battles of the present or the imaginary battles of the future. However, after a long absence, developer Sledgehammer Games sought fit to return the series to it's roots with 2017's Call of Duty: WWII.
The first and most obvious way is, of course, the setting; the series began in the theatres of the greatest war ever known, after all. But the gameplay, too, has been tweaked somewhat: the advanced movement mechanics of the game's immediate predecessors has been stripped back down to something more true to the "boots on the ground" style that made the series famous, and things like the unlimited sprint option or regenerating health have been removed entirely. The end result is a game that is simpler then many other first person shooters on the market; a delightful throwback to how the genre once was, but is no less fun to play as a result.
