In all the Modern Warfare 2 hubbub and Call of Duty 7 rumors, Treyarch's Call of Duty: World at War and its decidedly fun add-on mode Nazi Zombies has gotten overlooked. Truth be told, Nazi Zombies could have been reviewed as an entirely different game (and if our wish for a standalone downloadable title is ever granted, it may well be).
As of last week, the Verrückt map has been made available for the Nazi Zombies port on iPhone - the price is $5. Also, all three map packs for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions are available as a bundle for $25 (or the equivalent in MS Points). PC players can still download all three map packs for free. If you haven't played Nazi Zombies before, now is as good a time as any.
Oh, one more thing: Nazi Zombies.
