Call of Duty: WWII

It’s almost hard to believe that a Call of Duty title has made this list. Not because the games are bad, but because historically, the games haven’t had the best-looking graphics out there. While they certainly aimed for photorealism, it felt that many of them were held back by that very approach. Enter Call of Duty: WWII and now you have one of the most breathtakingly realistic games within the franchise.

Since the days of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, the teams behind the series have made serious strides in bringing the game to life, each using new graphics, new animations, and newer engines to bring some of the most photo-realistic games possible to fruition. However, it didn’t seem that the games could become as graphically impressive as they had in recent years starting with the star-studded cast of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. Step forward another two years and it seems that Call of Duty has come to a long way with Call of Duty: WWII.

To really take in the graphical and impressiveness of CoD: WWII players would have to take to missions where they storm the beaches of Normandy where beads of water from the oceans surface splash across the realistic-looking faces of the digital version of actor Josh Duhamel’s face as he and fellow co-stars trek through the European fronts of World War 2. Toss in the fact this game plays out more like a highly cinematic war movie and you’re set for one of the best looking Call of Duty games to this very date.
