Call of Duty: World at War: ZOMBIES Feedback?

Hey guys,

I'm JD, Treyarch's community manager on CoD:WaW: ZOMBIES for the iPhone and iPod Touch. I noticed this very extensive thread on here and in it had some great input and discussion, but I wanted to let you know that I'm here in case you have some specific questions or feedback you'd like the team to hear.

We also have our official boards for the game located right here, so please stop by if you're a real Zombies fan.

One of the best ways to reach me is on my Twitter account, @JD_2020 - so feel free to follow me and send me an @ reply whenever. If it's a topic I can respond about, I will =).

If you haven't checked out what CoD Zombies is like on the iPhone or iTouch yet, check out our micro-site below for screenshots, info, and a link to it in the App Store. We recently released our first DLC map, called "Verruckt", where the action continues with all-new features like electro-shock defense systems, Perk-a-Cola machines, and more!

More info: http://www.callofduty.com/supplies/codwawzombies_mp1

I'm glad to see the iPhone and iPod Touch community enjoys CoD:WaW Zombies as much as we do, and can't wait to see where the future takes us!

Regards,
-JD

I have one suggestion, an online ranking system, that tracks people's playing, so that people who only play half of a round play with people of the same type, and people who want to play til they lose play with that type... That is the most aggravating part of the game for me... Also be careful, you will probably get flamed for your release date mishap.

CoD: World at War Zombies is a polished title for sure. I've got to say that the controls for aiming seem a little off, since no matter how much I tried changing it in the options, it's nowhere as smooth and natural to control aiming in WaW Zombies as it is in any of GameLoft's first person shooters. While WaW Zombies is a top-grossing game, $15 is steep for two maps. $2.99 for each map seems much more in line with what we should be paying.

The full WaW ported to the iPhone (as was hinted at before by Treyarch) for around $20-$30 would be great, even if it's just for the newer iPhone and iPod Touch. A current generation console-quality game with a higher price and quality than previous iPhone games would really set a new standard and will probably lead to more games of that quality being released; better games at premium DS/PSP pricing.

Fix the sensitivity of the swipe to control. These controls are implemented very well on the game Eliminate, should check it out to get an idea of how it controls. Even Nova has a better swipe to control.

Ok, I really, really like this game. It's one of the best iPhone games I've played, but I have one BIG issue.

The connection is not compatible no matter what I do. I've followed every tip in the app, I opened the suggested ports, put it in DMZ, turned on UPnP, restarted the app and router, and nothing. My connection is incompatible. I try this at other places with Wifi and it works. I bought my router separately, and it's a Belkin N150. Anything? Or else can you see if you can suggest an update addressing this?

Thanks.

Honestly guys, I know he's asking for suggestions but stop barking orders at him .

Firstly, you guys did a wonderful job on this and really upped the standards of iPhone gaming. Secondly, I agree, some sort of online ranking system would be greeted with open arms. Other than that, other than the price (which a bunch of people nag about, yes it IS slightly higher than other games but totally worth it) I see nothing else to nag about in this game.

I must say, I'm actually kind of surprised you're here, not many big-name devs have the time, or, well, really even care to talk with their consumers.

Congrats and I hope we can see much more in the future.

I have to agree about controls here. I bought this game quite a while ago but never managed to play it for more than 10 minutes. The controls were too uncomfortable for me. But the same controls worked great for others so cant say there's something wrong with them. But then I've also played Eiminate, NOVA, Modern Combat on iPhone and never had any problem with those games.

Just wish you could add more control options here. I seriously doubt I'll pick it up again before more control options are included.

Welcome to TA!

Welcome to TA JD_2020. I do follow you on the other sites. One of my personal favorite games on both iTouch as well as other consoles. I did have a couple of questions:

- Will the Dev(s) be implementing some sort of buddy list in an upcoming update so we can see when our friends are on, invite them easier, compare profiles, etc...

- I'm a fan of the duel stick setup but would like to know if on the default one you can add an option as tap to shoot (like ELIMINATE Pro) because I would prefer that most likely as well as a way to turn off the auto-scroll so my crosshairs can stop right where I need them too and feel a little more responsive while I move the view side on the default.

- Will the Dev(s) ever implement a way of communication(i.e. pre-defaulted commands you can use that give both character and/or text on screen so players can be on the same page a little easier)?

- Other maps Will they be coming out sooner than the last update if/when they come out?

Thanks for an awesome game.
