It's going to sell phenomenally well. You have to remember, just because a game is bad doesn't mean that it won't sell.
I'm not saying CoD3 is going to be bad, I'm just saying i'm not sure if it will be good. First up, they won't have a PC version for CoD3. Major WTF. Next, it's not being developed by infinity ward. The third thing that makes me worried is the introduction of concepts like the one in that video. It looks cool, yeah, but it's essentially DDR [Just like ESF's adv. melee lol].
Bob-Doo de doo where are you frank?
Frank-Bonzai! Your gun is mine Bob!!
Bob-Never take this! *Taps triggers rapidly!*
Frank-Oh yea well take this!*Punches Bob across the face!*
Bob-Dam you frank it is my gun!
George-*walks around the corner and headshots both* Seriously guys use your guns not your fists bah!
it seems a tad too predictable to me, like it's more a new feature that happens every once in a while and not a actual skill the AI will use freely, as someone has already said, whats going to happen if they let the AI do that while fighting someone else off? You'll die quickly or lose alot of health,
Close combat fighting would be a cool idea, but thats all it could be, a cool idea and nothing more, it wouldn't actually work, unless you changed the entire game to fit around it and if CoD3 did that, they'd get alot of money but kill off most of there die hard fans
