Product Description Review

In a nutshell:
After the last game became the best selling launch title for the Xbox 360, Activision aren’t wasting any time with the follow-up as you do you bit to help out with the Normandy breakout and the liberation of France.

The lowdown:
Despite the new digit in the title this isn’t so much a sequel to Call of Duty 2 on the 360 and PC as it is Call of Duty: Big Red One on the PS2, Xbox and GameCube. It’s by the same developer (Treyarch), there’s no PC version and it doesn’t feature three distinct armies, but instead a recreation of the Normandy breakout. That’s not to suggest it’s short on new ideas though with much larger levels than ever before and far more vehicles to control (particularly in the Battlefield like multiplayer mode). There’s also a new Resident Evil 4 style quick time event system for hand-to-hand combat where you have to hit specific buttons to sock it to the Nazi hordes.

Most exciting moment:
It may seem a bit shallow to go on about the game’s explosions but really, there’s never been anything as realistic as the fireworks in this game. The way the smoke moves is particularly amazing, even drifting in the wind or dispersing after a second nearby explosion.

Since you ask:
Although Activision has confirmed nothing yet they have hinted that original Call of Duty developers Infinity Ward are working on their own sequel, primarily for the PC. When it will come out and whether it will be translated to the next generation consoles is currently unknown.

The bottom line:
The best WII first person shooter looks to be getting even better.

As a big fan of COD2 Big red one, i couldn't wait for the sequel, and io was not disappointed.

Call of Duty 3 is an outstanding game, featuring many challenging levels, with a well written storyline. It combines all the best parts of a WWII film and any other FPS around.

It leaves current versions of medal of honour standing, i've just completed MOH:Frontline, having borrowed it from a friend to compare it to COD3. While the story was good, in terms of gameplay and graphics, it can't compete with COD3.

The selection of weapons is authentic, and the control of vehicles is much better than it was on COD2, now when driving jeeps, rather than using the anaolg stick, you have different controls, which make it a lot easier and more fun to drive.

And for all the people who say it's too short and can't be bothered to play it again on medium or hard, play it on medium or hard from the start, and you'll get at least double the time it takes to do it on easy, as you can't just run in, all guns blazing on hard.

Definately would recommend this game to any fan of FPS war games.

Great story, gameplay, graphics, weapons, hours of fun.

Some people have been complaining about this game, saying that it is too short. Personally, I think the general length of the game is not short at all... however it is easier to complete than many other titles. It's main rival probably being either being the "Medal of Honour" series or the "Brothers In Arms" games; I would have said this is by far the best. Being slightly easier than these titles, it means that you honestly don't get bored until you finish working through all 14 campaign levels due to the fact that you dont constantly keep dying and restarting missions.

The story guides you through the WWII Normandy Conquest, after D-Day in June 1944. The main importance being that the character you play varies, due to you following the American, British, Canadian and Polish forces - all of which are closing down on the town of Chambois.

The graphics are some of the best I have seen on the PS2, and now that the PS3 has been released this is definately one of the games that I would recommend if you cant afford one (like me). Great game and thoroughly enjoyable - Definately worth the money.

Now I'm sure you've read the xbox 360 reviews of cod3
and thought, well thats all very well but i own a ps2.
well i did.
so this review is for the ps2 version because i have not played the 360
as im sure you already know the game based on the normandy breakout
after d-day. There are 14 campaign missions, which are really fun.
Yes it is a bit short(10 hours for me)but the main focus i think on
this game is the net play. Multiplayer is awesome.
With vehicles and new weapons, the multiplayer could not be better
in my opinion.

Another cool new feature of this game is the hand to hand combat.
It really gives the AI a sense of realism.

Graphically this game is amazing, with some of the nicest grahics on the ps2.
the gameplay on this game is awesome. in my opinion better than cod2
big red one
the only snag i have with this game is that its a little too short.
But that really does not matter, seeing as the multiplayer content
is my main reason for playing this game.

Overall: 9/10


This is an awesome game well worthy of your money.

What an awesome game! It's hard to say whats best, the gameplay, the graphics, the realism. You start off as an American soldier, then move onto a scottish soldier than you play Polish and Canadian.

**** Graphics: Very good, especially as a 2006 game. Though there mouths move randomly, sometimes not moving in sync with the talking, the smoke, enemy, allies everything else is very well done. Sometimes you get the odd gun or arm sticking through walls, but otherwise is very good.

**** Enemy: Except for a German or two coming and kneeling 3 ft in front of you and attempting to shoot you with a rifle, only to get shot first, enemys are genrally challenging, especialy on the hardest level. They take cover behind walls, boxes, trees ect. So make the battle fairly realistic.

*** Allies: Better than most MOH but still rather pathetic. Except for the mains like: Dixon, Guzzo, Huxley ect, the other allies seem there more to just die than to fight. You get one or two average allies who kill a few Germans before getting shot. But the mains like I said above don't die (if they do it goes to a movie) but arent very good shots either, Dixon seems more involved in yelling at you than shooting and Huxly, when using a trench gun, uses it like a rifle. Wasting ammo on Germans over 200 - 300 ft away! Thats why we have riflemen! Guzzo is the best of the bunch. But the most dissapointing thing is, when you go into the battlefield, (you have to go in first for them to follow most of the time) while you're killing Germans and getting shot, you get no cover at all! No one covers you while you're doing most of the work!

**** Weapons: You soon find your favourite weapons, I like the: Thopmson, Sten, FG42, Gewrh42, Lee enfield, MP44, and M1 garrand.
