Excerpt: Activision was kind enough to send us a copy of Call of Duty 3 (COD3) for the PS3. Being a console gamer, my experience with the Call of Duty franchise only started when Call of Duty 2 was launched along side the Xbox 360 in November 2005.

Excerpt: Multiplatform (tested PC version and Xbox360 Version) The Hot Call Of Duty Franchise hits boots on the ground running head long into a more modern era with spectacular results.

One of the most talked about features will be the use of AI squad members fighting alongside of you. The squad AI was a problem that plagued MoH: AA, sometimes making the action frustrating.
