CoD3's graphics are more cartoony and unrealistic compared to CoD2's. The lighting also is last gen compared to CoD2; lighting is dull and there is no harsh real sun light like there is in CoD2. CoD3 feels like i'm playing a higher res CoD2: big red one.

Some of the controls are better then CoD2 (you can melee while moving), and CoD3 is still fun, but the graphics are a let down. Damn, why do i trust pro reviews?

Here's to to the next go around with Infinity Ward's CoD4.

Update:

The game just all around sucks compared to CoD2.

Sorry for being so blunt, but that is the truth from someone who loves CoD2, and would have liked to have known this before i waste $60+....ebay here i come!

UPDATE:

I made my decision a little to hasty. SP is actually really good, and looks fantastic. But the MP, on the other hand, and what i based my initial impression on sucks and look much worse then the SP.

I love CoD3, I loved CoD2 and I think 3 is even better. The graphics look a lot better all the way around IMO. I haven't found any multiplayer maps that don't look better than CoD2.

On call of duty 2 when you had four players on the same box there was no noticeable hit to the graphics department. On call of duty 3 they tone it down so much it looks like a ps2 game. Also even in single player online things do not look as good.

In the campaign things look more smeared to me just not quite as crisp as cod2 did. Grenade cook and melee while moving are improvements but the hit the left and right trigger melee scene is so lame. They could have totally left it out.

If they had done an update to cod2 that allowed guests on live and more people playing on those big maps I would never have bought call of duty 3.

IMHO a let down overall for me. sad.gif

from what i have seen of CoD3 (all single player) it looks leagues better then CoD2 and it should.

however when it comes to multiplayer, its nothing new to tone down the graphics to help latency. i cant comment on the graphics themselves since i havent seen them yet, but this could be the case.

To me the graphics in single player took a hit to allow for so many things going on at once. It just doesn't look quite as crisp to me, maybe it is just the color palette they used on cod3 that I don't like as much.

As far as split screen there was little to no hit on cod2 and that is why I am so pissed about cod3 looking like total crap in multi player. I just don't get why they couldn't have done a better job.

To me there should have been nothing but improvements in call of duty three and I am sorry I just don't see it. I guess I just like the direction infinity ward was going and don't like the style of the new team on cod3.

I really cant see how people don't think this game has righteous graphics both MP and SP, For only a year difference Cod2 and Cod3 are totally opposites when it come to graphics, 3 is about 10 times as details, the gun models are so much better, the environments are better, the multiplayer maps are huge, Its just awesome all around. It took a while to get used to the adjusted reload times but I think it was much needed from cod 2. I love this game.

I must just have a different tolerance but it doesn't seem to dark to me, but thats just me.

P.s. I love the vehicles smile.gif

The graphics on COD3 in split screen multipayer are horrible, when i have four guests on line it looks like all the textures are gone and the gunmodels are just blobs of color.

Also in COD2 this was not the case, while you couldn't go online and play with gusts four player spit screen looked far superior overall.

The main reason I got this game was to have guests on live and now that that is ruined it just took someing away from the game for me anyway.

Boot up COD2 in 720p and use another 360 to boot up COD3 in 720p, i did and side by side, COD2 is better graphic wise, not too mention story and bug wise

also, is it me or does COD3 feel like BF2 MC online rip off
