The follow-up to the #1 next-generation game, Call of Duty 3 delivers the intensity of being closer than ever to the fury of combat during the Normandy Breakout, the historic campaign that made the liberation of Paris possible and brought the Allies a step closer to Berlin. Through a seamless narrative that delivers the rush of unrelenting battle and breathtaking action, players assume the roles of four ordinary Allied soldiers American, British, Canadian and Polish and are thrust onto an authentic, living battlefield for an unprecedented variety of combat, with advanced high-definition graphics, detailed character animations and explosive on-screen action, delivering the most immersive and cinematically intense war experience ever.

The Power of Next-Gen - Built from the ground-up for next-gen consoles, Call of Duty 3 brings the battle to life with advanced graphics, a new physics engine, a procedural environment and detailed ensemble animations that deliver the most cinematic war experience ever

Battle Actions - An all-new close-quarters battle mechanic allows players to fight hand-to-hand, improvise explosive devices, disarm traps and execute a host of other battlefield situations that require cunning and rapid reflexes to survive.

    Branching Mission Paths - Next-generation level design provides multiple attack routes that let players decide how to confront the enemy - flank an opponent, or hit him head-on. Each unique mission path requires special tactics, from sniping and demolition to all-out head-on clashes.

      Nowhere to Hide - Environmental physics allow players to destroy enemy soft cover hideouts, forcing foes out in the open. But be wary, opponents can eliminate your protective cover as well.

       great action

      | | See all Markshepherd's reviews (29)

      First off, if you've played CoD WaW, then don't get this, i understand that you want more of the same kind of action, but you will be disappointed.
      If you've yet to play CoD Waw then i would highly advise you to buy this game. Its got a lot to offer a CoD first timer and will absolutely whet your appetite and make you want WaW even more.
      The game is quite short (12 levels), with no multiplayer, and its not compatible with the zapper. But what it is, is a solid game for the Wii that i'm sure you'll enjoy.

      Remember this was one of the first games available for the Wii so try not to expect too much from it, and i promise you will have a good time playing.

       Too many bugs and no multiplayer

      Many magazine reviews can't give this game enough praise, however after finding several bugs but managing to complete it, I decided to sell the game. At several stages your character appears to do his own thing and walk to the side, while under heavy fire. Theres arent cut scenes or part of the game, these are bugs where the Wii remote isnt communicating with the character, this is normally while theres a lot going on and the game struggles to cope with all the data. This spoils the whole game and your left not wanting to play any of these missions again.

      This is a personal experience but other people have mentioned the same bugs. The game play is brilliant and at times you even feel scared to look up from the wall or bunker that youre hiding in because theres so much action.

      Its a pity the bugs let the game down, as well as the fact that there is no multiplayer feature. If more time was spent on this game, instead of rushing to release it for launch, this could have been amazing, and also wi-fi compatible. My suggestion? Wait for a sequel or buy Call of duty 3 on the PS3 or X-box if you own either of these systems as they have the multiplayer option.

       Pretty daim good

      a fun shooter, ave graphics (better on 360), decent controls and weps, and a few repetative minigames (planting charges... etc) controls sometimes go psyco, but i think thats just my wiimote...

       Extremely Intense, yet not without its flaws.

      We are probably all aware that Call of Duty 3 is a FPS based during WW2, so theres no need going through all the detail here, so lets just get right to the point. First of all, when it comes to the visuals, admittingy, the Wii version isnt all that much different to the xbox version. There are certain improvements like smoke effects but unfortunately these are mainly only noticable when you actually search for it. Although the Wii isnt meant to present us with such mind blowing visuals as the PS3 or 360. However, it is recognised as a more powerful console than the original xbox, which seems to be a downfall here as the xbox and Wii visuals in Call of Duty 3 arent much of a difference. Yet I suppose this is fairly commen during the launch days.

      The controls however is where Wii takes its highest priority. Here Call of Duty controls will take a little getting used to at first but are easily picked up after a few minutes. The Wiimote is used in the right hand as the aiming and firearm. An exclusive technique to the Wii version is that the aimer can be set to the centre just like all consoles or you can have it set to free aim. This is where the crossfire can be taken off centre. This is actually better for the Wii as aiming with the Wiimote will feel much more fluid. The B button is used as the trigger while A brings the gun to the centre, making aiming more precise. This can also be used much quicker by just rotating the wiimote to the left. This is pretty basic.

      The nunchuck in the left hand is used for movement using the analogue, Frwd, Back and strafe left and right. C is jump while Z is crouch. The nunchuck is used also for choosing weapons by a simple wrist flick left or right while flick upwards reloads. At first I though this would seem much more complicated but the these have made it so much easier for me to handle. Usually when I played Call of Duty Big Red One on the Gamecube, I always forgot to reload while with the nunchuck, that has never been a problem again.

      There are some things about the controls in some areas that could have been dealt with a little better. In some stage a soldier will attack you from around the corner where he grabs your gun. Here you will have to force him back by pushing forward both nunchuck and wiimote one at a time. This isnt too bad and pretty accurate but not very appealling to the new control system. The thing I was least fond of was steering controls. Usually in wii racing games the only thing required is the wiimote held horizontally, tilting left and right for steering. But with Call of Duty you have both nunchuck and wiimote, which would seem quite awkward to keep changing different control positions. So instead you are holding both nunchuck and wiimote as if you are positioning your both hands on a steering wheel rotating it left and right. At first this may seem easy but not realising that this does come to be quite tiresome after a while. Probably the only major flaw in the controls alongside a few minors.

      But as the controls may be a great start up for a FPS on the Wii, it is by no means perfect along and with the lack of multiplayer which is probably the major flaw of the game. But this is definetly without a doubt the best FPS on Wii by far as you play through an extremely intense, incredibly atmospheric war game that is highly involving.

      the gameplay is just unaccepltably bad. the controller frequently goes off the screen leaving you usually spinning around in a circle getting shot at.
      this game most likely would put anybody off getting a wii for fear of all gameplay being this bad
