Excerpt: Call of Duty 3 on the Wii may be more a less a direct port of the PS2 version, although what sets it apart and silences the laughter of narrow minded folk directing their attentions towards a so-called next generation machine hosting a mere port from last gen, is of course the controls, and in this...
Excerpt: Call of Duty 3 was my first opportunity to play a FPS game for the Wii, having not picked up Red Steel , so I was anxious to see exactly how well the system handled the genre. Suffice it to say that, with a little practice, the feel of the game has rekindled a long-dead thrill of FPS' in me.
Excerpt: Call of Duty 3 for the Xbox 360 is one of the most intense first-person shooters I've ever played, and the current-gen PS2 and Xbox versions did a decent job of replicating this experience, albeit with less striking visuals.
Excerpt: Let's tackle probably the best thing about this game, the visuals and sound. In the cutscenes the faces are extremely detailed, showing every wrinkle and cut on the soldiers faces. The lighting is beautiful, showing the extraordinary sights of this famous war.
Pros: Amazing graphics and sound makes you feel like you are really part of the action.
Cons: The difficult controls will take a while to get used to. No multi-player/online modes.
Conclusion: COD3 for the Wii is a fun and intense game that is sure to please both
novice and experienced gamers who are willing to take a bit of time to
become comfortable with the controls. There's a lot of action and
the various scenarios keep the gameplay feeling fresh.
Excerpt: There aren’t many in the world of video games, be they the makers or the players, that don’t know the name
Call of Duty
. In as much as the series is just another first-person shooter, it is also completely different. In many ways,
Call of Duty
isn’t a FPS at all.
Conclusion: On the whole though I would recommend CoD3 to WWII or FPS fans, on the basis that its control is very tight and the experience is still extremely immersive on Wii, despite graphical shortcomings. Great fun, while it lasts.
