    I've always enjoyed the historical Call of Duty games and this was just another fun game. Nothing really special here but if you want to kill some time without getting sucked into a story, it's a wise choice.

    My review for this somewhat disappeared so i'm going to have to re-write it. Call of Duty 3 is the game before the game which shaped the following games in the Call of Duty series, the squeal to that game which will then make the future of Call of Duty games and the multiplayer in every multiplayer game ever from then on, also making the series from then on being one of the most hated upon and most bought game series ever. Holy poop that's confusing huh? In simple form, this was a forgotten part of the series. Its the game which led to Modern Warfare, one of the biggest game changers in the series. This game however is a singleplayer based game(shows how the series has changed ay!?), which is great. It feels very capable of capturing the mood of WWII, which is good. You feel tense as you walk down a trench feeling that you could be shot at any moment, this is brilliant and really captures the game. You can see its a CoD game and it plays fairly well. The multiplayer is crap. Mind you its CoD at its routes which is very nice to see. Has lots of graphical flaws though which sometimes takeaway from the mood. E.g. you're supposed to be in a tense situation and a team mate runs into a tank which should kill them but ignores them to shoot near you despite the fact your in cover. The game plays well and is perfect for CoD fans who want a difference. Expand

    Call Of Duty 3 delivers the intensity of bieng in war. It delivers a seamless narrative, unreleting battle, and breathtaking action

    The best COD ever. Although it may seem repetitive this genre is not boring. The PS3 version is more dynamic according to the control, unlike the PS2 has higher quality graphics, but the trouble is the online mode because the servers are somewhat decayed

    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.

    The game is decent at best, and is one of my least favorite CoD games. The campaign isn't anything special or too memorable. 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

  1. A great game with thoroughly enjoyable multiplayer, quality presentation, and some mildly-interesting tilt-control support. It is missing a couple of features that its Xbox 360 counterpart contains, and the frame rate is far less reliable in this version, but the overall intensity and playability of Call of Duty 3 remains intact, despite these few issues.
  2. Take one part classic Call of Duty scripted FPS action, add in two parts improved level design, another one part updated graphics, and just about four parts upgraded multiplayer and you've got the ultimate Call of Duty stew.
  3. 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.
