4colorrebellion.com get some hands on time with Call of Duty 3 on the Wii.
"how does it control? The answer is… quite well. Again, I'm no expert in the workings of FPS control… but COD worked exactly as I expected it to. Movement is mapped to the analog stick, while aiming is mapped to the Wiimote's motion-sensing thingamabobs. In a nifty little trick, you can twist the Wiimote left and right to "lean" left and right in the game, it's a small detail… but it looks pretty damn cool in action. Control sensitivity is adjustable from the pause menu, which is good because the default setting is pretty sensitive."

COD has a long and storied career. Launching as a PC WW2 first-person shooter, Call of Duty has gone through numerous makeovers and been on just about every system. The series has gone through some serious highs and tragic lows. I’ll be looking at each Call of Duty game, the good the bad, and the ugly."
If the rumours are true then COD will be returning to World War 2 this year. The evidence is strong: by Activision’s own words the series is “going back to its roots” for its next instalment. There’s also some leaked art and steelbook covers that, while still unconfirmed, definitely look the business. With that in mind let’s take a look back at some of the series’ greatest WW2 moments. From weird and quirky levels that have you crawling through a pipe, to all out warfare against impossible odds or battling fighter planes in a bomber falling apart in midair. Moments like these can get lost in the cycling din of yearly iterations, so let’s take a moment to appreciate some of Call of Duty’s stand out levels.

Over forty years on planet Earth, my own nerd rock from the sun, you could say I’ve played some games."
