    Hey all!

    Following your advice for a good FPS, i bought COD3 this weekend! At first i hated it so much (couldnt get used to how you move ect...) but after a couple hours it all came into place and im loving it now!!!

    Anyway, for me personally, i like playing games in short bursts, play for about an hour and as soon as it auto saves, turn it off, for me, it keeps me interested in the game, that aside, everytime i load my save game on COD3 i have to watch the bloody campaign intro video everytime!!! :mad5:

    Is there anyway to skip this? or am i forced to watch it?

    Cheers

    Will

    Try the minus button, that's how you skip scenes in Zelda anyways :)

    Also, I think you made your topic in the wrong forum.

    hey, well i read many mixed reviews on this, and like u said, u can never trust videos/pic on review sites.... well my honest opinion is this.... they are pretty freeking good! lol

    obviously there not a patch on the 360, but if you cast your mind back to the xbox1's COD / Medal of Honour there about on par with that! (i have a 28 CRT - ive taken it to my friends and he has a 26" LCD HD and it looks even better!!) But its very very immersive cos ov the game play and you soon forget about the gfx! The sound is very good as well and it makes good use of the wiimote...

    if this is the 1st generation of Wii FPS's then the next gen are going to rock so much!

    Does that help?

    I didn't like it. I felt like my squad was doing all the work and I had to compete to kill people. A decent port, but not worth my money. It is by far the best FPS on the Wii right now.

    I bought COD3 on the strength of all the reviews and also the fact that it was in a similar vein to Redsteel; which I love.

    After picking up the controls fairly quickly and playing into only the second level, granted, I don't really feel it's as enjoyable as RS, the graphics and sound are decent but for me it just doesn't have that enjoyable edge about it....although I will perservere with it and hope it gets better then all will be well but for the minute it's a mediocre fps only worth a 5.5....

    you gotta remember that this is still a launch title so there is gonna be alot of negatives, but based on that and knowing its laying the groundwork for future FPS i think its done a fantastic job! :)

    my opinion anyway lol

    One problem with COD3 is that it doesn't work very well on small TVs :(

    That first time where the nazi that rushes you where you have to fight him melee... That took me a long time to figure out cuz I was holding the remote sideways or something. I wanted to break the disc. Once I got past that and got used to the controls, I absolutely loved the game. The only reason I wouldn't buy it to own it is just the lack of replay value for me. I'm not into FPS games enough to want to play any of the game over and over. As soon as I beat the game, back in the mail it went. I'd give it a 7/10 though. Loved it.

    yeh i think everyone had the same problem! lol it took me a couple go's and its very stressful... But the second time it happens i totally pwned him! haha

    One thing i did feel was a bit tacky was the hole "priming the bomb" on the AA guns... i accept its clever use of controls, but the gestures (imo) are a bit naff.... on the flip side - driving is very cool! works really well!

    everyone buy this game!! its very fun and ammusing (plus theres a scottish guy who constantly takes the p155 out of "frenchy", hehe)

    Rowing the boat went by too fast. I know you shouldn't be giggling like a 2nd grade girl during a WWII game, but it just felt too damn fun.
    Also, to add to what I said before... I wouldn't buy it to own it for $50 but if it goes down to $20 as a Player's Choice or if I find it used later on, I probably will pick it up. I miss the mortar launching and that one minute row across the river.

    haha yeh the rowing was cool! ive just done that bit now! Landed on the shore, autosaved then turned it off... i gotta admit £40 is a touch on the pricey side and i might ebay it afterwards, but it sure is a fun game to pick up and do a couple levels.... i got my eye on Godfather: Black Hand when its launched!

    The opposite for me, I felt like I had to help my comrades. Which is a good feeling, I guess. Like when they're shooting the MG42's in the window, no matter how long your soldiers shoot, they won't take them out, since it's "your mission" to do it. :p
