I played some more Call of Duty 3 last night, and learned two things: people are unfair, and I should read the manual.
First, I played a game of “Battle”, which is their word for deathmatch. I tried a new level I haven’t been to before, and it amazed me as well. There was lots of vegetation on this level, some log buildings/shacks, and some bunkers. Everything looked really really good. The vegetation especially. It also amazed me how good some of the players are. If you meet some certain players on the battlefield, you just know you’re going to die. At any rate, it was fun.
Then I played a game of capture the flag. First I chose the Allies because I liked their machine gun (the Thompson). But then when I saw that Allies were winning 7-0, I switched sides to Axis. I played for a while, and we didn’t do so well. When I checked the stats, I found out why. The Axis had about half as many players as the Allies. Hardly fair. Due to my lack of skill using a game controller to quickly target an enemy, I opted for the role of Medic, which gets you a shotgun. You don’t have to be as accurate with that! (But you do have to be close.) I thought that I’d try reviving someone because I was a Medic, but that didn’t work. Next time I’ll read the manual first. I couldn’t figure it out. I assumed I would just have to stand near the injured person, but I saw no indication that I was healing the person. Ah well.
Anyway, I’m quite enjoying the game. The graphics and sound are awesome, I just have to learn to play it a little better.
