There’s no doubt that the Call of Duty franchise has become a common household name nowadays. With every passing year this generation, a new installment is aborted from Activision’s womb to the mass army of fans that worship the series for its addicting online multiplayer – even if it is somewhat regurgitated from its predecessor.
For fans of the series – especially those who are obsessed with the World War II take on the franchise – you’ll be happy to know that Activision has decided to bundle three Call of Duty games into one sexy, plastic-wrapped concoction of Nazi-killing good ol’ fun, as per GameStop and Amazon, in a compilation dubbed Call of Duty: The War Collection.
The collection bundles together three World War II-based games from the series only available on Xbox 360: Call of Duty 2, Call of Duty 3, and the more recent installment, Call of Duty: World at War. If you’re wondering where is the mention of a PlayStation 3 version, there isn’t going to be any that we know of. Some of you could care less, but there are a handful of people reading this that will, more than likely, protest and/or throw a tantrum which will involve pillow biting and mirror punching.
Pricing is as good as it gets, at this point. For three games (two of which can be considered ancient, at this juncture) you’re paying $60, which is the price of one 360 game. If you haven’t played anything before the Modern Warfare franchises, now would be a good time to get back to the roots of the franchise. It’s a good buy for three old good games.
