  1. The PS3 version of the game is just as impressive as the Xbox 360 version and while it doesn’t have split-screen multiplayer, it makes up for this with the Sixaxis functionality.
  2. If you own both an Xbox 360 and a PS3, choosing which version of this accomplished WWII shooter to buy comes down to how much you like or dislike the motion-sensing elements.
  3. Engrossing, frantic and exciting.
  4. The 360 version flat out stomps the PS3 this time.
  5. The PS3 version suffers, however. The outstanding visuals shine, but the frame rate has a tendency to jump around.

    Terrific multiplayer fun. [Feb 2007]

    While it lacks the polish we’ve come to expect from original developer Infinity Ward, it’s still a fun, if dangerously familiar campaign through 1940’s Europe. It’s just doesn’t offer anything unique or new to the genre.

But it's just a really nice shooter, it is a lot like the other CoDs, but call of duty is a great franchise. Multiplayer was good too. Overall, this is your typical first person shooter, buta really good one. in case you haven't noticed, i LOVE shooters. Expand

    Being that it's 2009 and this was released a few year back, the game is good. Obviously, doesn't compare to COD4 or COD:WAW, but Being that it's 2009 and this was released a few year back, the game is good. Obviously, doesn't compare to COD4 or COD:WAW, but it's still a good game. The multiplayer reminds me of old school online games... and lots of people still play! Expand

It also has some heavily scripted events that takes away from the non-linear action of the the previous two games. But unlike the first two, it features driving sections, and four playable factions instead of three. The campaign overall is okay, the multiplayer on the other hand is a step backwards and a step forward, and here is why. Instead of the 8 player limit of the first two games, it supports up to 24 players. It also introduces a new game mode called War. It also introduces vechicles, sprinting, and classes. But it's a step backwards because it gets rid of the radar and it runs at 30 FPS instead of 60 FPS. Overall, decent game, 7/10. Expand

    I was a huge fan of RRT 3 who had solid "true 3D" graphics, good sound and the best economy/RR sim model ever made to day. You still find me I was a huge fan of RRT 3 who had solid "true 3D" graphics, good sound and the best economy/RR sim model ever made to day. You still find me under "Champion_Tycoon" in the multiplayer once in a while (I have not lost a multiplayer game in more than a year so strong players are highly welcome). I am also a long time fan of Sid Meier's games, some of which brought me many hours of relaxation over the past 15 years. That being said I expected 'Railroads' to come at least close to what RT3 was: a budget game. Oh boy was I wrong... Sid Meier's game is pure crap; I spent about 6 days playing the single and multiplayer maps and I was disappointed with every aspect of the game: graphics, sound, controls, design, game logic, economic model, RR model, historic accuracy, replayabilty and last, but not least, overall entertainment value. It is one of the worst games I have ever played... and I have played more of them than I should have. This game is an absolute ***ZERO*** Like some1 said b4: "Shame on you Sid." Expand
