Another year, another Call of Duty. Activision’s roulette wheel landed on World War 2 for the latest incarnation and so, here we are with Honest Game Trailers’ interpretation of the upcoming FPS. Sure, it’s well-trodden ground, but then, so is the genre of historical shooters.

There aren’t really any surprises in HGT’s take on Call of Duty: WW2, mainly because we’ve seen and heard it all before. Which is kind of the point.

As the video mentions, the single-player campaign features a bunch of cliched characters, mini-games (such as tank driving / shooting) and quick-time events.

In fact, the trailer makes an excellent point towards the end of its “review”:

…get ready to charge into the good fight for another Call of Duty that delivers more or less exactly what you expected from it because, let’s be honest, you either stopped caring about the series years ago or you’ve already bought it and unlocked your sick weed leaf emblem.

And that’s… pretty much true. I think the last game I played was World at War and that’s only because it featured a full cooperative campaign. Gosh do I miss those days.
