Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

The follow-up to the #1 next-generation game, Call of Duty 3 delivers the intensity of being closer than ever to the fury of combat during the Normandy Breakout, the historic campaign that made the liberation of Paris possible and brought the Allies a step closer to Berlin. Through a seamless narrative that delivers the rush of unrelenting battle and breathtaking action, players assume the roles of four ordinary Allied soldiers American, British, Canadian and Polish and are thrust onto an authentic, living battlefield for an unprecedented variety of combat, with advanced high-definition graphics, detailed character animations and explosive on-screen action, delivering the most immersive and cinematically intense war experience ever.

The Power of next-gen:
Built from the ground-up for next-gen consoles, Call of Duty 3 brings the battle to life with advanced graphics, a new physics engine, a procedural environment and detailed ensemble animations that deliver the most cinematic war experience ever.

Battle actions:
An all-new close-quarters battle mechanic allows players to fight hand-to-hand, improvise explosive devices, disarm traps and execute a host of other battlefield situations that require cunning and rapid reflexes to survive.

Branching mission paths:
Next-generation level design provides multiple attack routes that let players decide how to confront the enemy flank an opponent, or hit him head-on. Each unique mission path requires special tactics, from sniping and demolition to all-out head-on clashes.

Nowhere to hide:
Environmental physics allow players to destroy enemy soft cover hideouts, forcing foes out in the open. But be wary, opponents can eliminate your protective cover as well.

Team-based multiplayer with vehicles:
Combined arms and team-based combat provides unprecedented depth and variety by allowing up to 24-players to battle it out online with the option of single or split-screen Internet play. Gamers have the choice to play as infantry or commandeer multiple-occupancy vehicles, including tanks, jeeps, and motorcycles with side-cars, leading to unique mobile combat roles for all-out, multiplayer mayhem. Call of Duty 3 also offers soldier classes, each with class specific abilities, and a ranking system for truly diversified squad combat.

5.0 out of 5 stars A classic, that still holds up in 2012 13 Dec 2011
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The games is awesome, if you are looking for a cheap game to fill the time untill the next big title, or you want to get some band of brothers, saving private ryan type game, then i would definitely advise you buy COD3!!! Despite its age this game still has a fairly decent population in multiplayer and i must say i prefer playing this than some of the later COD titles. The campaign is a classic, its like playing an old war movie, some of the cut scenes get repetitive if your playing the campaign more than once, but i have played it several times to the end, and each time i have enjoyed it. A lot of people have complained about glitches, but i have never encountered any in the campaign, and people intentionally glitching in mulyiplayer to gain an advantage just make themselves easy targets. To sum it up, this game is a classic, it can be enjoyed by all ages, but id say is better for the mature player. Give it a go!

P.S: dont get ripped of paying to much for this game, you can still play online with a pre-owned game. Many place hike up the prices because its a COD title.

2.0 out of 5 stars CoD 3 review 24 Oct 2011
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
You know, I played every CoD in the main series before this, from the original to Black Ops, and they're all pretty good; Infinity Ward's entries are the real stars but Treyarch's entries, BlOps and World at War, were both enjoyable. So when I heard that this instalment sucked I thought, how can that be? So I thought what the heck, let's give it a go. Man do I regret that now. This is not worth your time, forget price, it's just not worth the eight or so hours it'll take you to complete on normal difficulty to warrant a second glance.

There's no short way to write the cons in full English, I've restarted this review three times already, so I'm just going to list them.

* The story concerns four factions, the Americans, Britt's (+ the French resistance), Polish and the Canadians, boxing in the retreating German forces in mainland Europe. Whilst linking campaigns together seems like a good idea it results in levels feeling very similar and lacking the unique tones and style of their associated nation's.

* The story is told through unskippable cut-scenes (an annoyance I never thought I would get too worked up over) and NPC dialogue, though you may miss this altogether as it is often obscured by the fighting. It also uses several stereotypes and often feels a bit silly considering how serious the subject matter is.

* With the exception of the American campaign, the other nations only get two or three levels each so feel out of place when you've been focusing on one squad's exploits and are now riding in a Polish tank.

* Levels are extremely linear, full of invisible walls and making you just follow stars on you mini-map half the time. The levels also feel repetitive a lot of the time.

3.0 out of 5 stars COD - the early years 27 Oct 2010
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I played this game on PS2 a few years back. I only bought this because I want to play all COD games on the 360.

You really notice the improvement in the graphics otherwise it is pretty much the same game. A few extra scenes and of course a multiplayer.

As a shooter it is quite good. Problem is that there are a lot of better titles available now. Set in Normandy you play two levels each of different nations, canadians, british, french and american. Most of the game is street fighting with a few in the trenches. The bosses come in the form of stand-offs against swarms of germans. It is entertaining enough if not a bit short. Checkpoints are sensibly spaced and auto save. Controls are typical of COD games.

The only complaints I have are that your AI buddies get in the way a lot and you can get stuck in the scenery and can't move.

Worth a blast though.
