Call of Duty 3 impressions and very little Wii info
Read on and just look at all the incredible Wii info, you won't believe your eyes:
Wii controls are still being ironed out at this point, but it was mentioned that aiming would likely be controlled by moving around the Wii-mote. Battle Action sequences will also take advantage of the Wii's unique control aspects, though specifics were not revealed.

On IGN Wii's homepage they have the Call of Duty 3 title to click on for impressions. When you get inside the story you see that you must be a paid IGN Insider to see the details and "screens" of the Wii version of the game. What you don't realize is that the screens are old and have been on the internet from magazine scans from weeks past. Whats more is that the info on the Wii version that IGN has is bonehead at best. The Wii will use the remote to aim and shoot in COD3. Really? I didn't figure it would, I thought we would just use our Gamecube controllers....
This is a very bad and horrible trick to those who paid to join just to see something they already saw and to hear something they already knew. We all know that the game will use the Wii remote! How painfully awful this is for anyone who bought into IGN's latest bull.
Its not just a fluke that it was Insider only, it was planned and executed well by them because they knew that hungry Wii fans would take the bait.
Shame and disgust to them.
How do you feel as a Nintendo fan by this?
Edit: IGN Wii has now lifted the "Insider" stuff and now you can see the entire article with the screens. A little late though if you ask me.
