  1. This is a markedly better game than "Call of Duty 2: Big Red One" and the finest World War II gameplay on the current-generation consoles.
  2. COD 3 pulls out all the stops to put you as close up to the action as possible, even allowing up to 24 players to experience full-on war in the online mode.
  3. The action is unbelievably intense and the historical material is researched and presented in a way that borders on being educational.

    Luckily for you, Call of Duty 3 for PS2 is actually very similiar to its next-gen sibling - and, in some ways, it's even better. [Feb. 2007, p.80]
  5. Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK

    The most atmospheric and intense WW2 shooter we've played, hampered only by linear warzones and poor mini-games. [Christmas 2006, p.95]
  6. The visuals are very well done and the sound is simply incredible, especially with the score it has.
  7. So if you're looking for an all-out melee, then Call of Duty 3 is your game. If you want something that's somewhat stealth mission-based, then you might want to give "SOCOM U.S. Navy SEALs: Combined Assault" a whirl.

    Well simply...great...I played mostly all of the call of duty games,and i have to say this one is a succesful sequel to cod games...Greg B. Well simply...great...I played mostly all of the call of duty games,and i have to say this one is a succesful sequel to cod games...Greg B. says that the game is disappointing because it doesn't focus on only one fighting country...well the game explains how these different countries fight through the german dangers...and occasionally find a solution...mostly war games focus on american divisions...but call of duty 3 is not....you stiil get american parts...and in fact they are pretty cool...but the game shows how all countries fight and then end up to the last battle....and the last battle is fought by Americans....

    I like the graphics, but I am very disappointed with the online portion. No kick option, no round restart, not allowed to change the game I like the graphics, but I am very disappointed with the online portion. No kick option, no round restart, not allowed to change the game name. I find it annoying having to end the game everytime I want to change maps, or go make a new room altogether. I really enjoy COD2 for all these features. As well for all the hype for this game, i am surprised at the lack of weapons and maps. I must say, i am overall really disappointed with COD3. Expand

    Before the Call of Duty Franchise became the pile of **** it is today, it produced games like this where the campaign was the focus, and itBefore the Call of Duty Franchise became the pile of **** it is today, it produced games like this where the campaign was the focus, and it was actually important that they put some effort into it. Having said this, this game does have weaker gameplay than the later installations, and the AI is poorly developed, leaving plenty that could have been improved upon. Expand

Flicking right stick up-down rapidly to move a mortar or an AT gun is pretty boring and some things are historically inaccurate. Its fun at stages but there was more room for improvement. Expand

The only reason this will get high scores is because of console players who never played one of the earlier PC games which were generations beyond this travesty. Expand
