Activision's Call of Duty: World at War goes right back to the bread and butter of the franchise: WWII FPS action. In this rendition, you start off in the South Pacific and move through a series of missions that flip back and forth between the Russian front and the island hopping advance toward the Imperial Japanese homeland. Included is a mission on Peliliu Island, arguably one of the more difficult and costly battles in the Pacific theater. The gameplay in single player mode is rather short, but the game makes up for this shortcoming with online gameplay. If you thought COD4 looked nice, this game will amaze you with the graphics maxed out while playing at high resolutions. I will use Fraps to measure a section of gameplay in the Semper Fi map on Makin Island to compare performance of these video cards.

Again, the 4850 fights with the Nvidia cards. At resolutions higher than 1280x1024, the performance is nearly identical with both the 4770s and 4850s.
