Call Of Duty 3
It would be Treyarch who would be at the helm for the second time with Call Of Duty 3. One of the most interesting aspects of Call Of Duty 3 is that this was not released on PC! That is right, Call Of Duty was released only on consoles and as well as the current gen (at the time) it was also released for original Xbox and PS2. An interesting fact about the game is that it was a launch title for both the PlayStation 3 and Nintendo Wii.
The campaign in Call Of Duty 3 was very well received. The story was based on the Normandy Breakout and the 14 missions that span the US, UK, Canadian and French forces are all part of one single story. This was a very interesting move for the series and many people liked it better than each faction having its own campaign. The campaign had sky high production values and not a bad word was said about it.
The multiplayer aspect of Call Of Duty 3 was huge. It was one of the most popular online games on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. It had a lot of game modes and both consoles saw it become one of the most played multiplayer games of 2006 and 2007.
Call Of Duty 3 was a huge game and the fact it was only on consoles makes it the only core Call Of Duty game to have done this.
