    I tried to run it on my PC, just in campaign mode. I make it through the opening cut scenes as the boats approach the beach on D-Day, but then get the endless loading screens. Restarts, re-installs and all other manner of troubleshooting produced no fix. I got a refund from Steam, which to their credit, they are very efficient at.

    The release of game status for COD: WW2 has been out for over 13 hours and yet no changes to server issues have been made. It is dissapointing to many who pay a sumptuous amount of money on the game, before it releases, as well as after to launch the application Or start the game with it not being fully developed prior to release.

      It’s not by any means the worst Call of duty ever. Perhaps the worst launch by a mile but by far from the worst Call of Duty.
