Computer A.I., lack of multiplayer
Call of Duty 3 for the Nintendo Wii is the first Wii title to show off the new and much anticipated first-person shooter controls and EA delivered the goods with Call of Duty 3 for the Wii. The controls are amazing! To start, the B trigger is the fire button. The A button is to look down the barrel of your gun. The d-pad throws grenades, while the Z trigger allows you to crouch, military crawl, or stand. The nunchuck's joystick is for running, while the "Wiimote" aims and turns your character. The Wiimote is 110% accurate and percise; wherever you point your remote, the game will respond. Kudos to EA for the controls. Graphics...possibly the prettiest launch title on the Wii. The explosions look impressive. Don't expect Xbox 360 grpahics, however.
With that said, CoD3 on Wii does have it's problems...the A.I. is dumb. The computer will attempt to hide behind cover, but they charge stupidly quite a lot. Sometimes, the computer character will stare right at me and not fire. Also, the fact that there is no multiplayer whatsoever kills the replay value. After beating the game, your only incentive to play it again will be to play on a harder level of difficulty.
Overall, CoD 3 is a pretty game with nice and precise controls. Aside from the lack of A.I. and mulitplayer, this is one of the best launch titles for the Wii.
