    Anyways, back to the point.
    Today i'll be reviewing a semi-recently released game, called Call of Duty : World at War Zombies.
    As many of you may know, this game was based on Zombie mode (Also known as Nazi Zombies) in the mildly popular : Call of Duty series available on the Xbox, PS3, and the Wii. (Also first versions on the gamecube.)

    Gameplay

    Basically, what you do in this game is your job is to shoot the zombies, like the title says. Yes, this game is a FPS.

    There are two levels of difficulty. Recruit and Normal.

    You are located in an area named "Nacht Der Undertoten." (SP)
    - Don't worry, there will be more maps coming soon.
    You are a man that is being mobbed by german zombies. (Hence the term, Nazi Zombies.)
    You start the game with a pistol with fully loaded bullets, and your highly trusted knife. As you progress, you can buy more advanced guns, including a double barrel shotgun, a rail gun, and more. (If you can find it, you can also get a flamethrower.

    There is an unlimited amount of levels. But as the levels progress, the zombies come in larger amounts and are even harder to kill.

    Tips

    1. - "Knifing" (The act of killing a zombie with only your knife) is very useful until around level five or six, when the zombies do not get one hit killed by the knife.
      - Always upgrade your gun when possible.

    Overall Gameplay Rating : 4.5/5.
    Due to extremely repetitive gameplay (Exciting, but repetitive) and the fact the first levels are way too easy and boring.


    Graphics

    The graphics in this game are very well done. They are not "PS3 or Xbox worthy," but are very great for this handheld.
    They also managed to pack it into only 16MB!
    The floor, the fire, the rubble, is all very detailed.
    The blood looks pretty real, and if you shoot the zombie in the hand, his arm still comes off, spewing blood. (Ew?)
    If you shoot a zombie in the stomach, you can see his skeleton.
    Activision really thought this all that, replicating the original Zombie mode as well as possible.
    If you look out the window, you can see the outside with zombies coming.

    Overall Graphics Rating : 5/5.
    This game barely takes up ANY space, but contains very over average graphics.

    Sound and Music
    Now, this is one of the areas that Activision needs to work on.
    First, the sounds.
    The sounds are incredibly annoying, the zombie's voices are always the same, and some really pierce my ears. You can turn the volume off, but then it's boring. Playing a FPS without any sound is pointless.

    Music
    You cannot play your own music on this game, which is a let down.
    (Unless i'm wrong, please say so.)
    This game has no music, just sounds of the background.

    Overall Rating for Audio : 3

    Value
    Alright. Now the question that most people are asking.

    "Is this game actually worth $9.99?"
    My answer is : Yes.
    What's not to like?

    (Quick Overview)
    - Decent Graphics.
    - Did a good job transferring console version to ipod touch.
    - One of the ultimate survival games for the ipod touch.
    - Multiplayer (I'm sorry i forgot to mention this. I might add it later.)
    - Very entertaining.


    Replay Value :
    This game has lots of replay value. Each game takes approximately 15-30 minutes, depending on how long you can survive.
    Multiplayer, does not have to be local. (YES!)
    Multiplayer can be a blast.

    Overall rating for Value : 4

    There are very little flaws. (Mentioned in the overview.)
    Not to mention no/very few bugs.

    I think he's picking up on your first sentence wher you say "If anybody could find a picture of what the app looks like, it'd be highly appreciated"...

    I'm presuming you're looking for the icon to add as a thumbnail to your review... try http://crossfire.nu/fusen/idb.php.

    I just wished they fixed the controls. They feel so sloppy compared to other FPS like Modern Combat...

    They just need to let us play our music and the rest of the maps should either be $0.99 or free and I'll be content. Lol I got every achievement except the running one.

    Technically, you can play your music. Just use that .app released on Cydia that lets you customize alot more (don't remember the name, but it integrates itself with the Settings app) and restore the home button double click original function (music controls). Now you can play your music whenever you like, just like before.
