Before Modern Warfare rocked CoD into the videogame stratosphere, it was but a well-respected WW2 shooter with an eye for realism and a penchant for the spectacular. Call of Duty 3, the first of Treyarch's attempts at slipping into Infinity Ward's shoes, was a decent game, but like most of the odd numbers in the CoD franchise, it lacked that undecipherable quality so integral to Modern Warfare 1 & 2's success. It wasn't bad by any means, and Treyarch stepped out in the graphics department, adding a wonderful sense of depth and distortion to the series' lovely depth-of-field effect. It's a good game, but a bit dated now, and with Treyarch about to bury the hatchet with Black Ops, it's a little like being a James Cameron fan and watching Piranhas 2 instead of Avatar.
