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:

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars CoD 3 - A solid launch title 9 Dec 2006
By Riaz
Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Firstly, I must point out that Call of Duty 3 does NOT have any kind of multiplayer mode. So if you want a multiplayer FPS, look away now.

OK, now that's out the way, Call of Duty 3 has been frequently called the best launch title FPS that you can buy for the Wii. I can say with confidence that the controls are spot-on (and much better than Red Steel's) and although for the first few minutes, the only things that should be worried are the sky, the floor and the walls, you'll soon be head-shotting Germans with a bit of practice.

The missions are varied and enjoyable, most taking full use of the Wii-Mote and nunchuk. Some of the highlights include driving missions, rowing a boat, setting up explosive charges and more.

Graphically, we're talking Xbox textures, Xbox effects, Xbox polygon counts. Sound is where Call of Duty 3 excels. Hearing your allies chatter and bullets zip past your head create a great atmosphere.

Now this is a launch title so it isn't without it's flaws...

1) At the beginning of some levels (and every now and again in the middle of a level) there's about 5 - 10 seconds where the Wii-Mote fails to respond to anything (normally ending up in the screen spinning in circles).
2) While the frame rate is solid 99% of the time, it can and will fall at big battles.
3) Cut scenes can't be skipped, no matter how many times you've seen them.
4) A bit on the short side, but difficulty levels will keep you coming back (unlike Red Steel).
5) No multiplayer!

So I highly recommend this game if you want an FPS for the Wii's launch window. Once you're done with it sell it, and there will be a better FPS (hopefully with online play) around the corner. If you don't plan on buying this but like FPSs, this title would make a great rental. If you have an Xbox 360, skip the Wii version and get it for 360 instead as it has better graphics and multiplayer support.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but a bit rushed 11 Nov 2007
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I've had this game since launch but only completed it quite recently because I've been playing other titles in the meantime.

Its actually very well put together and the motion controls work really well.The general Fps action works well and the gestures for rowing boats, driving cars and setting bombs all work superbly. I see a couple of people in previous reviews moaning about the hand to hand combat sections, but I never saw these as a problem at all. If I was in that kind of situation in real life I probably wouldnt move my hands backwards and forwards in a rhythmical way, but as long as you're doing what the game is telling you then it works fine.

The only problem is that its really obvious that its a launch game. Many things appear rushed and there are a few things that are quite sloppy. It seems that by concentrating on getting the controls right, they've missed a few basics out.

For example, near the end of the game it really does lag and slows down quite alot in places. This is really unforgivable as the graphics arent really pushing the Wii at all (it basically looks the same as the PS2 version), and it actually affects the gameplay quite badly because you simply cant move while 100s of German Soldiers are shooting you. You can get around it because it only happens occasionally, but you're guarenteed to die a few times due to this.

The graphics really dont do the Wii justice either. Im not particularly fussed about graphics personally, but all the colours are so drab that it actually makes it quite difficult to spot enemies and sometimes you'll wonder why you have actually died.

Someone complained that the game was a bit short in another review, but I disagree with this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Plain Fun. 28 Feb 2007
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Call of Duty 3 was always going to be a hit or miss on the next gen interactive Wii console. It might not look half as good as the PS3 or Xbox360 versions but what it offers is a more enjoyable, more accomplished game. If you were hoping to play online or have a multiplayer match with your mates than this game really isn't for you.

The game follows several characters including an American soldier called Nichols and several other armies likle the British, and Polish. You follow all of these but not one at a time. One mission you might be playing as the Americans and the next you might be playing as the Polish.

The story line of the game is about after D-Day and the allies attempt to re-capture France, forcing the Nazis into the Falaise gap. You'll sabotage, destroy and do everything you'd expect in a WW2 shooter.

The graphics aren't ground breaking or impressive. There are a few nasty textures about but if you're not shallow enough to not buy a game because of it's visual prowess, you won't mind.

The sound is pretty atmospheric but the music where a blood thirsty Nazi is pushing a gun against you gets annyoing, especially when you can't do it.

But the best bit about this game how you play it. you actually feel as if you're improving as a soldier becoming a skilled marksmen. Punching the Wii remote towards the screen will do a melee attack. B is to shoot and holding A will look down the barrel of your weapon, for more precise shooting. You get to plant charges which takes 3 different movements with the Nunchuk controller. At first you will need to turn down the sensitivity as it takes a while to train a steady, accurate hand. You get to drive a car, row a boat all using the Wii's unique interactive gameplay. It really is great.

This game is pretty big and you can knock up a good 15 hours on the campaign. The game, sadly has little to no extras. But what you get is a fantastic package of what the Wii can really do.
