  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. You simply can't imagine what Treyarch has done with the franchise until you see Call of Duty 3 in action. You'll wonder how they got all that game into an Xbox. They have really mastered the technical horsepower of the Xbox and advanced the series in every single way.
  3. The next iteration of Activision's Call of Duty series, Call of Duty 3 for the Xbox, wrings the last dregs of capability from the Xbox aging console and satisfyingly delivers on the promise of an upgraded "Call of Duty 2."
  4. While not as breathtaking as the next-generation version of the game, Call of Duty 3 for the original Xbox will still not fail to impress with its great visuals, intense action and great multiplayer mode.

    This is a great example of just how far the Xbox is being pushed in the twilight of its life cycle.

    Really Good Game! Decent gameplay the whole way through. The only problem is the difficulty of it. I play on Normal and it is still easy.
