Through a seamless narrative that delivers the rush of unrelenting battle and breathtaking action, players assume the roles of four ordinary Allied soldiers; American, British, Canadian and Polish, and are thrust onto an authentic, living battlefield for an unprecedented variety of combat situations, as the campaign to liberate Paris ensues.
An all-new close-quarters battle mode allows players to fight hand-to-hand, improvise explosive devices, disarm traps, and execute a host of other battlefield situations that require cunning and rapid reflexes to survive. Meanwhile, the next-generation game design allows for multiple attack routes that let players decide how to confront the enemy.
Each unique mission path requires special tactics, from sniping and demolition, to all-out head-on clashes, providing for a truly organic game that is never the same twice. There's also a new multiplayer mode that allows for combined arms and team-based combat.
Gameplay is further enhanced by the incredible graphics power of the PlayStation 3. You'll experience photo-realistic graphics and fast, smooth action that makes the experience of battle all the more immersive.
The multiplayer mode provides unprecedented depth and variety by allowing up to 16 players to battle it out online with the option of single or split-screen Internet play. Gamers have the choice to play as infantry or commandeer multiple-occupancy vehicles, including tanks, jeeps, and motorcycles with side-cars, leading to unique mobile combat roles for all-out, multiplayer mayhem.
Call of Duty 3 also offers soldier classes, each with class specific abilities, and a ranking system for truly diversified squad combat, and hours of multiplayer, and single player fun.

I only play on-line and there is still a community of people who refuses to let it go and still plays this wonderful game. The on-line experience is great, because you get to shoot with the real weapons which were used by both sides in WWII (the nazis and the allies). If you play the campaigns, it'll turn into a useful tool to educate yourself about what really happened back then. The game brings you back to the original battles right at the locations where they were fought, and it follows the right timeline, bringing you all the way through a real piece of European history! If I had a child, I'd buy for it, over any other video games, as the most fun way to learn about history.
The game looks, feels, and sounds like one of those old-fashioned WWII movies, but in a very good way. It has 'classic' written all over it. The storyline is one of the most coherent and interesting in the whole Call of Duty series, and unlike modern Call of Duty games this one actually focuses more on historical accuracy and displays of heroism than over-the-top spectacle. This is particularly refreshing.
Weather effects, like rain, still look excellent by today's standards, while other effects like gunfire and explosions definitely look dated. There's a decent level of destruction present within level design which adds to the game's immersion. Character models are pretty good but animate poorly compared to modern video games. While some parts of the game have aged well, others haven't.
The entire campaign contains plenty of variety, with each nationality bringing its own flavor to the game (i.e. Americans are the straight-up assault missions, S.A.S. are behind-the-lines hit-and-run, Polish are tank-based, etc.) Some battles can get pretty big and intense, especially the final German assault in the very last mission which is simply exhilarating. As usual for a Call of Duty game, however, teammate AI is useless while enemy AI fails to impress.
Best soundtrack in the series. Sound effects have plenty of punch, but aren't as crisp as they are in today's games. Voice work is generally pretty good, but unfortunately gets muffled occasionally, making it hard or impossible to hear the actual dialogue in the game.
Unfortunately, the game's online community has almost completely disappeared despite this game having the most unique and arguably well-made multiplayer in the entire series. Single player, though fun, lacks any reason whatsoever for a second play through other than your own enjoyment of the campaign.
Overall score: 7.4/10
I have since sold World at War and COD4 only play MW2 from time to time. I still have COD3. I can't bring myself to part with it, even though I don't play it. A lot of great memories from a time when there were no stats being recorded in-game... Before everyone became selfish and stat-obsessed. Before camping was ever an issue.
