Set your sights on Call of Duty 3 shots

Friday 29 September 2006
Another platoon of screens from the console-only Call of Duty 3 has emerged from Microsoft's X06 media blowout - hit the images tab for some brooding warfront shots of US and German troops in the Normandy mud. Or hit the movie tab to see a superb new movie.

We were quite taken with the game when we played it earlier this month - no other WWII game brings out that heart-in-mouth sensation quite like Call of Duty and, even with a different developer working on this third incarnation, it's ticking all the right battleplans.
