New Call of Duty 3 Wii pics


Someone posted these scanned images from the new Nintendo Power on the Nintendo forums today. The game looks OK and better than the junk that was shown earlier. Still the game sounds like it could be a lot of fun even without the graphics of the other versions.

Well, since alot of third-party developers only had the dev. kits a month before E3, I can't really expect anymore in terms of graphics. I really hope Activision reconsiders taking Call of Duty 3 online with all the backlash the Nintendo fans are venting toward them.

Plus, on a related note, Matt over at IGN Blogs confirmed that the Red Steel footage we saw from GC 2006 does not represent the final build. In fact, it was pretty much the same from E3.

I guess the game doesn't look that bad when you consider it has to run at a good framerate and it also has all kinds of things going on at the same time.

I'm a little confused about the release date for this game. Nintendo Power says that it will be a launch game, but I keep hearing that it has been delayed for the Wii until 2007. Nintendo won't let developers have the online tools until '07 as well, so there could be some truth to that. We'll see what Activision chooses to do with this.

I think the game is coming along very nicely. I would love to see it in motion however on the Wii. Screenshots can only go so far.

I bet the game will look great in motion too, with all that stuff going on I hope it runs smooth too.

I agree with game on. Games like CoD with tons of stuff happening always look worse in screen shots. Also, I've seen CoD2 on 360 played on an SDTV and it looks pretty close to this as far as I can tell. A delay for CoD would be bad unless it came with the news it would be online enabled out of the box.
