  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.

There was nothing groundbreaking about this installment and it definitely should'nt have been console only. Still, if you feel like playing a more classic FPS and just want to do a quick playthrough, I'd say it's worth a shot for 10$. Expand

Campaign was +-10 hours lenght and i must say it was filled with lot of action. For a 2006, graphics are pretty and especially gun models are very good.
    But somehow, the campaign was kinda weird. It wasnt even half way epic as the campaign in Call of Duty 2. For some reason they tried so hard to be funny in dialogues, that its not funny at all.

    Driving model is fine during "Jeep driving" part, but steering Sherman tank is very weird.

    One of the biggest issues i had during my walktrough was definitely level design, enemies respawing in same spots, going hide to same spots. + You cant skip cutscenes.

    Im glad, that i have finished this game, but there is nothing special in this game, its 7/10 CoD.

    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
