Oh the insane 1st levels of the Call of Duty series....

Call of Duty 3 is the latest outing of the franchise and was done by the guys at Treyarch games (I believe they did the "Big Red One"). I was (at first) a bit skeptical as too how this game was going to be since I never played Big Red One and was not familiar with how Treyarch would approach this game.
I have too say that I am very impressed with this game. The level of intensity and chaos that can surround you at times is truly something that needs to be seen. The opening level to the game stands right up there with the opening level in the last 2 games.
Graphically this is by far the best looking installment in the series. The weather effects, water, smoke, explosions are all top-notch and the framrate is suprisingly very solid. There are times where you will see some low-res textures but more often then not there will be so much going on you won't get a chance to see anything other then gun fire and explosions going off all around you.
The sound in the game is the best there is. On a surround sound system this game will give Saving Private Ryan a run for its money in the audio department. To me, everything seems to be as authentic as it gets and if they wanted us to hear what WWII was like then they have succeeded in doing so, it's crazy. You just need to hear it....
All in all this is a very solid and enjoyable gaming experience and I would recommend it as a buy to anyone who has enjoyed the Call of Duty series. I haven't dove into the multiplayer yet but talking with friends, they say it is the same as CoD 2 and that's a good thing.
