Call of duty 3 is a great game in single player. However how a game so full of bugs was released on XBOX LIVE is absolutely shocking. The XBOX 360 forums are full of gamers raising queries and issues with the Ranked Lobby, problems with black screen of death (hearing the game being played while you wait on a black screen), terrible spawn points with no protection, falling through maps, vehicles and players unable to move while floating in the air, vehicles that you are unable to get out of once you are in...

To be honest you cannot play this game multiplayer becasue of the servers and the bugs. It took two months and they finally got a fix out but now there is a cheat where you can score thousands of ranked kills in a day!

Dev's clainming the game does work but it is individuals routers/connection, which is crap!

How a new map pack costing a fiver can be released and not work, crashes your XBOX live is a disgrace.

Unimpressed....

I would argue that you CAN play this game on live muiltiplayer. Yes there are bugs but it is still the game I play most on live.
