Why Call Of Duty WWII Zombies The Darkest Shore Shows Its Time For A Spin Off

I am a huge fan of the Call Of Duty series and feel that Call Of Duty WWII is one of the best yet and last year, even if you just got the bare bones packaged and decided to not get into the DLC. Call Of Duty WWII offered you a lot of bang for your buck.

Ever since Zombies Mode was introduced in World At War. It is a mode that I have had a lot of fun with. I feel that Call Of Duty Infinite Warfare is the best Zombies mode to date as I loved the campy style that it had. However, I honestly feel that Call Of Duty WWII’s Nazi Zombies could have actually been a standalone title and set the way for a whole spin off series of Call Of Duty games.

To start with some of the guys behind the Zombies Mode in Call Of Duty WWII worked on Dead Space a series of horror games (well the third was more action) that were fantastic. That certainly shows here as the tension and horror are really ramped up from what has been in the previous Call Of Duty Zombie modes. 

The first Call Of Duty WWII DLC pack, The Resistance included a new chapter in this zombie tale called The Darkest Shore. It is set on a creepy German island that has a thick fog, dark forest and creepy bunkers and buildings you need to survive in. This whole chapter is all about creating tension and it does it very well, some of the zombie designs look like they were taken from Dead Space and I got a real kick out of that.

However with as much fun as I have had with The Darkest Shore, it was over nearly as quickly as it began. Now, of course, I will play it over and over again, but I feel that with this they turned Zombies mode into something more cinematic and I honestly would have paid 60 bucks to have a full Nazi Zombies stand alone game done in this style!

While getting Zombies mode as part of the overall Call Of Duty package is great, I think that the mode has progressed enough where it could very well become its own standalone series.
