Call Of Duty 3

Whenever you think of a Call Of Duty game you think guns, action and tanks. Thankfully Call Of Duty 3 lives up to its previous titles and has all of these things packed into a nice singleplayer and multiplayer game.

The game itself is set during world war 3 during the german invasion of paris and as with all the previous Call Of Duty games, after the tutorial you are quickly given a gun and are forced to go through some nice and detailed levels. Throughout the game you are switched between certain countries fighting for the french in the war and although this can make the story a little confusing at times it does give the story some variety as you are put in different situations. Although the levels are fairly straightfoward they are far from linear and the graphics make the french countryside look great. The graphics are certainly not Gears Of War standard but they certainly reach their mark.

Some times there is a lack of variety in the main storyline as most objectives only ask you to defend positions destroy tanks or clear out a certain area but thankfully these objectives are quite fun anyway even if they are slightly overused. Overall the main storyline is longer then most others in the genre and should keep you busy for quite a while. The music and sound effects in COD 3 are also fantastic and are definatly one of its strong points.

Another excellent part of Call Of Duty 3 is its excellent multiplayer. Generally players can either participate in a number of team based games like capture the flag or participate in all out everyman for himself battles. Generally there was not too much lag and there were lots of games to play. The multiplayer aspect of the game will keep you occupied for quite some time after the main storyline is finished. Another thing to note on the multiplayer side of things is that unfortunatly there is no co op which is a bit of a letdown.

Overall, if you are a fan of the other COD shooters or even first person shooters in general then this is a game that you shouldn't miss.

*Great long storyline
*Great looking graphics
*Awesome Multiplayer
*Spectacular music
*Great AI

*No co op
*Some close ups of scenery can look ugly
*Some missions can get boring due to a lack of new objectives
