5.0 out of 5 stars intense war shooter, 26 Feb 2007
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Call of Duty 3 (Xbox) (Video Game)
Any xbox owners looking for an exciting and realistic war
game should purchase this. The graphics are impressive on
a par even with 360 and ps3 versions although probably not
as polished.
Fabulous explosions with smoke effects accompany intense battles with planes flying overhead. After an initial training level
you are thrust into a cemetery where a ferocious battle is
taking place.
The game is linear, but their is no denying its an exciting
recreation of the normandy landings.
This is one of the last stand out titles for the xbox and is well worth a purchase.

4.0 out of 5 stars C.o.d. 3 lesser brother to C o d 2, 3 Aug 2007

= Fun:3.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Call of Duty 3 (Xbox) (Video Game)
Having played COD1 and COD2 I was really looking forward to COD3 but found myself somewhat letdown.True the graphics are good and the explosions fun but COD3 has some problems.Firstly is the cut scenes,MY GOD THEY GO ON AND ON AND ON! and you cant get out of them! you have to listen to the same "start of level" drivel every time you load in your game!.Why did they miss out the "jump to end" button?.
Collision detection is next,There are some serious shortcomings in this department.You can often clearly see your target,your gun muzzels is no where near the cover your hiding behind but your bullets are still hitting the wall or tank your hiding behind!(see stuart tank ,2nd lvl, beginning for good example.)Also you can often not shoot an enemy partially obscured by vegetation but they sure as hell can shoot you!.There are also areas and situations in which you can get "jammed" neccesitating a restart which is annoying,it is thankfully rare but happend to me twice.
I prefer COD2 for the single player campaign,its much smoother and feels more polished.Also you dont have to put up with the naff "hand to hand combat" sequence.I also liked the ability to jump out of windows or over walls too in COD2.I do like the ability to pick up and throw back the enemy grenades in COD3,thats a nice touch and quite useful.
I really play this game for the online gaming which i must admit I'm addicted to.Its just SO MUCH FUN!
There are some problems here too such as some players(quite rightly so)complaining in particular about some of the weapon options.The axis weapons tend to be a little(or alot,depending on combat class)out performed by the comparitive allied weapons.My particular pet hate is the MP44 heavy assult axis weapon.Why was such a coveted weapon by both sides in WW2 so rubbish in the game?.IF it was this crap in reality NOBODY would have wanted it!The online version is not as good as the campain one,its inaccurate and lacks stopping power and desperately needs a reworking/upgrade to address these faults .There are also some map gitches which certain poor players have to use to try to be any good at all in the game.removing those would be worth while and help keep down the aggro lvls when your up against cheats!.
One other improvement would be the ability to boot a player off who is making themselves a nuisence such as team killers,foulmouths and cheats.

However i do like this game,campaign and online, but would absolutely adore it if these problems were sorted out.However if you want a good single player game, go for COD2 but for online play go for COD3!
I look forward to COD4 with baited breath!hope fully they will have sorted out the problems found in COD3!
