Excerpt: Not only did Call of Duty 2 help kickoff the Xbox 360 in November of 2005, it was hands-down the system's best launch title. Here we are a year later and Call of Duty 3 is already hitting store shelves.
Summary: All in all, Call of Duty 3 is a
worthy addition to the franchise and a good game for the money. And while
there's nothing really new or innovating added to this latest version,
its highly-replayable campaign and massive multiplayer support is still
a strong follow-up to the venerable series.
Pros: Pretty and entertaining, with great multi-player options.
Excerpt: Call of Duty had made its reputation already on PC thanks to innovative gameplay, beautiful graphics and an unseen level of intensity. The successor, CoD2, was a launch game on Xbox360 and made an even bigger impact on that platform.
Excerpt: in the last couple of years. With serious PC issues on launch for the last two games and campaigns that were memorable but short with little replay value, I've had a hard time considering any recent
How 3D Glasses Changed My Perspective on Call of Duty Blacks Ops
5 October 2010
Excerpt: It's very tempting to prejudge Call of Duty Black Ops - a first-person shooter set in, among other places, 1960s Vietnam - as a balk at recent California legislature that threatens to regulate the sale of video games to minors. It's violent.
Conclusion: I'm hoping that someone at Treyarch is listening and when they make the next COD:(after WAW, which I have not played), they don't repeat the same mistake with the save system, and give us the ability to view each level's difficulty setting (down to the sublevel as in COD2).
Excerpt: As an Xbox 360 launch title Call of Duty 2 was certainly one of the best on the system, and even a year later it remains as one of the 360’s greatest games. A third instalment in the series was always a dead cert, and this time the authenticity of World War II has been brought to life by Treyarch,...
Conclusion: A game that feels more like a copy than a continuation of the series, plus the fact that the online never really took off means that it’s only worth a solitary playthrough at best. At least we can take solace in the fact that after this poor showing they got things spectacularly right for the fourth...
Conclusion: As good as can be expected campaign from the dying genre. Intensity did not last as long as the gameplay. Phenomenal multiplayer that’s unfortunately underrated. A great game…but please. Please! No more. It was great while it lasted.
Excerpt: It seems fashionable to be down on WWII shooters, but I don't think I'll ever grow bored of them - well at least not the good ones. It's a little unfair to group the Call of Duty series in with all the rest as it has rarely put a foot wrong, on consoles and PC.
