If call of Duty 3 is any indication, there's plenty of ammo left in World War II shooters. New single and multiplayer hands on!
"We want to take things to a whole new level."
If there was one recurring theme in our recent visit to see Call of Duty 3 at Activision's office in sunny southern California, that was it. The third installment of the insanely popular World War II shooter looks to outshine its predecessors in a number of ways. Considering the success and wide acclaim of Call of Duty 2 on Xbox 360, Developer Treyarch, that with Call of Duty 3 takes the series' reigns away from Infinity Ward, definitely has an uphill battle ahead.
Being the first Call of Duty game to simultaneously hit the Xbox 360 and PS3, Treyarch is not only pushing the gameplay boundaries of the series, but the visual ones as well. Call of Duty 3 will sport entirely new environments, and in general, everything is looking sharper and crisper than it did last time. It even upped the ante in smaller areas like implementing active foliage and spiffing up explosion colors for that extra level of detail.

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."
