This was the game i picked up at launch and all I can say is that I am very satisfied with it. Within the first couple of minutes I was amazed. The biggest thing for me was the ability to melee with the motion sensing sixaxis (!). Even from the first level the visuals are astounding. The minute you get boosted over the wall in the first chapter you feel like you are there. I haven't got to test the online play yet (stupid, stupid laggy sattelite internet) but if you like the online in call of duty 2 you will probably enjoy this as well. My only complaint is that I wish you could skip cutscenes you've already watched.

I first rented this game from Gamefly for my 360. Once I got my PS3 I bought it for my PS3 and sent the 360 version back. This is a great game. The one player mode is extremely fun and pretty long. The graphics are above average and good sounds. True to the Call Of Duty franchise you live the life of several different soldiers throughout the push to defeat the germans.
The on line mode is great except for a few flaws. It fits my style of playing as a run and gun type of game but also fits other styles. A major flaw in my opinion is a lack of ranking. You get promoted by doing various things but it doesn't stay with you once the match is over. I think this is something they will add soon. And the other major flaw is not enough people are playing it. Their is usually only 1 or 2 games full of 24 players and the others have various amounts usually below 15. Overall I feel it's the best game out for PS3 right now. Defiantly worth buying.
I played call of duty 3 for the 360 when it came out and when i got a PS3 i heard that it used the sixaxis to hit enemies. Well it was fun to hit them like playing the Wii but the problem is that when you.....attempt to hit something you loose your thumb position on the controller and probaly miss leaving you WIDE open for a KAR98 butt in your face leaving you pised off that you were sooo excited to kick some germen butt. All in all COD you did it again but please next time keep the SixAxis out of it. K?
