Overall: Found this game new for $19.98, bought it even though COD4 is the big thing, and what did I get? A really good game.

Alot of reviews bashed this game, but the single player is fun (although difficult on harder setting I am currently playing) and the multiplayer is really better than I thought. I haven't played as much multiplayer on any previous game (XBOX or XBOX 360) than I have in the short time I have had this game. Multiplayer graphics are very good and hit detection pretty accurate.

I am not really into Modern Warfare, so this game really appealed to me. I am not sure if I would play the singleplayer more than once, but the multiplayer makes this a game I keep popping into my XBOX day in and day out for a little stress reduction.

Gameplay: Aim, shoot, duck. Pretty straightforward FPS. The only thing this game is missing is the GOW and M@!%#*! Effect sprinting.

Online I do pretty well and I am usually at the lower end of the skill spectrum, which leads me to believe this game is more balanced than some others.

The single player is a little bit too scripted. Because of this, it is enjoyable the first time through, but I doubt I would play it through from start to finish again. A little more open-ended would have helped the single player campaign.

Vehicles in multiplayer are a nice addition.

Graphics: Single player visuals are good, but a bit drab in the colour department - although better colour than GOW.

Multiplayer graphics are fantastic, in some cases they seem better than the single player.

There are other games with better graphics I guess (not much though) but this runs as smooth as silk at what looks like 60fps solid.

So, top 20% in graphics I would say. Good enough that many times the graphics look photo-realistic and you would show someone how good it looks.
Sound: I can't play games loud, but the sound is non-stop with the action. Sound mix is good ie. you hear the voices over the sound effects, and stuff far away sounds far away, and the close sounds close.

Guns sound like they should I guess.

I think the best part of the game is the whizzing of the bullets, they really make you duck for cover.
Suggestions: Fix my free Valor map pack please that was supposed to come with this game. The code did not work.

Otherwise, I guess I will have to try COD4 to see if they finally implemented the sprint from GOW and M@!%#*! EFFECT.

Date reviewed: January 21, 2007.

Overall: The CoD series have shown us the power and intesity of WWII throughout the years. They have shown us almost every battle imaginable many times. Yet there is always somthing about the game that just makes me want to buy the next installment.
Gameplay: CoD3 reinvents the multiplayer half of the game. Not only are there vehichles now but also soldier classes. Each class has unique abilities and looks. All classes seem well balanced except for the Support Class. But that small issue barely tones down the intense, team based game play. No Team Work Equals No Win. The single player felt too similar to CoD2 but it had some new abilities and weapons. You are now able to throw back enemy grenades. And of course there are a few new weapons including the auto-matic sniper. The vehichles are a blast in multiplayer. The faster vehichles can be rather impossible to drive. Overall the gameplay is very smooth and fun.
Graphics: The visuals are rather good. The grass will lay flat after you step on it which is interesting and realistic. The weather and smoke look amazing as always. There are better graphics out there but overall they are great.
Sound: The sound as always makes the game feel entirely real. Theres not a moment where you wont here either yelling or explosions in the distance.
Suggestions: The only suggestions I have is to change up a little more stuff next time around.

Overall: The game is just great. The campaign is just great as the same with Xbox Live. I was so surprised on what Activision did to the multiplayer world of call of duty. Driving vehicles, ranks, medics, each member on the team plays an important role on your quest to win the match.
Gameplay: The gameplay is amazing. The AI is awesome and acctually kills people and doesn't stand around. I also have no problems with Xbox Live as far as lag goes, occasionally I will get the intense gamer that cusses you out everytime you kill him, but hey, every game has them. They could have made the campaign longer, but I like the ending, it was pretty inspiring.
Graphics: The graphics are rediculous, in a good way. The rain looks real, the players all look different, the grass/ground looks like the real thing, the sky looks awesome, and just so much more. Your squad acctually gets beat up and you can see cuts and bruises on their faces during gameplay.
Sound: I didn't have much problems with the sounds in the game. Occasionally on campaign mode one of my fellow squad members would say the same thing repeatedly but that didn't bother me much.
Suggestions: The only suggestion I have is to make the game longer. At the end of the campaign when its showing the final video after you beat the game, the guy says "4 days later, the allies storm into paris and totally defeat the nazi army, putting a end to the war" or something like that. We should be able to play the part and not have to hear about it. I would like to see Activision make the campaign mode longer.
