Call of Duty 3 gameplay

Activision released this new gameplay video of Call of Duty 3. And while it may not be the most impressive title technically, it still does look good.
Update : Added some images from the 360 and PS3 versions, and some from the multiplayer modes.

Well, it look better than COD2. Also, I'm happy you can finally throw back grenades! Something I felt that hampered the realism of COD2.

Yeah, I am happy you can throw the nades back too. But the question is can you do it in multiplayer. You know how some companies tend to do all the good stuff to SP and don't put all the nice features in the MP.

looks a bit better and faster than COD2 , smoke goes away too fast makes it unrealistic , hmm if you can drive a jeep in SP maybe they will add them to MP too.

How fun this game can be with its Mp and Singelplayer.. There are much more interesting titles to be released.. this is a 20% off priced game if you ask me! but hey thats just me..

Besides the smoke, everything else is looking good.

looks nice and fluid,its just the same old COD thats been around for way to long now,wish they would just make a new game,from scratch

Now COD3 is better than COD2 in every way-especially, MP will exactly be a Battlefield 1942 of 360.
But, it is still not better than BIAHH in many ways...

Yeah, they gotta' stop usin' the COD1 (2?) engine, it's starting to look like a game from 2000, only with some blur and bloom :P. If they'd use a better engine/new engine it'd probably look better. (I'm pretty much bothered by the blurry textures)

Well realtime Shadow, lighting and no more stupid POPPING GOD DAWN THIS WAS ANNOYING IN COD2...

looks very nice,i like how u put 360 in same bit,allow me to compare,i think the 360 looks like it has a tiny b it more depth than ps3,but looks wicked,just needs to have a new engine

Sorry your a little outdated and don't have a sense of the time it takes to make a new engine from scratch. As a matter of fact, the developers of Call of Duty 1 and Call of Duty 2 are keeping quiet creating the next engine from scratch for Call of Duty 4. That is why they handed Call of Duty 3 to another developer.
Commented on 2006-10-09 17:01:02
yes think i have to agree,allthough in end there will be no difference between the 2 systems.
on a note about both shots 360&ps3 the ground looks awfull
Commented on 2006-10-09 17:04:02
i didnt actually mean a new engine,what i meant was,why keep making COD3,COD4,COD5,COD99, its getting alittle old skool now,i would like to see more next gen firsts. like what gears of war,assasins creed is doing for next gen
Commented on 2006-10-09 17:04:55
I liked what I saw......except for that smoke.

The games looked quite similar, too, from what we could tell. The level of detail in the maps and characters has been noticeably ramped up from Call of Duty 2, such as with the aforementioned individual grass blades and rays of light filtering through the trees. The characters' facial expressions, clothing, and animations are also appreciably more realistic than in the past. You'd be hard pressed to say which version looks better, especially since they're both running in 720p resolution, but neither one is a slouch in the visual department.

new games are great, but you dont just drop a winning franchise... if cod1 was a success and cod2 was a huge game on the 360... of course make a cod3 lol....

but yes their needs to be original games like gears and viva and assassins .... but their also needs to be continued development on older franchises like this for those of us that loved it.

Also remember this game was made by another team besides the one that did the cod2... the big tea is working on cod4 the future warfare one... now thats gonna be wicked.
