  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. With a brilliant single player mode that takes you through some great story and dialogue, excellent voice acting and highly realistic graphics, Call of Duty 3 is a must buy for anybody who wants a decent shooter on the PS3.

    Treyarch has done an amazing job with this game and has quite possibly constructed one of the best online experiences currently available anywhere.
  4. Great looks gel with genius game design. [Christmas 2006, p.20]
  5. The game mechanics and general feel of the game are not overly different from what gamers are used to, but that this is brought to such vivid life on a console is a tribute to the diligence of the developers.
  6. 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.

    Pretty generic and linear, the ww2-genre is becoming repetitive and ... boring.

    This has to be one of the best games i have ever played in my life. i think combined with the graphics the ps3 can withstand it is the BEST.

    As my all time favourite CoD being World at War, i bought call of duty 3. this game could be completed in about 8 hours. 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. Full Review »
