I've been playing Call of Duty 3 for the Wii, and as I've been getting used to the controls I've been enjoying myself. And then it happened: one of those moments that has simply ruined the game for me.
Here is the situation: I'm fighting with the French resistance. I kill some Nazi's and then I head up a flight of stairs in a house. At the top of the stairs, a Nazi soldier grabs me, and I have to do that bit where I'm moving the nunchuk and the wiimote alternatingly forward and back. And it's not registering right and I'm dying, again and again. There are no indicators anywhere as to what isn't registering: should I be holding things differently? Moving faster? Moving slower? All that happens is that I die, and then I'm back at the last checkpoint, fighting my way again until I reach the building and get killed again.
There doesn't appear to be any button-press alternative to this action.
And there doesn't appear to be any way to avoid it. I've thrown tons of granades to the top of the steps, and he's still there. I even moved slowly and saw the soldier, and I shot him point blank . . . and he stands there doing nothing and not dying. To move forward in the game, I need to get past this segment . . . and I am not getting past this segment.
Does anyone have any advice? Is there some trick to the gestures that eludes me? Is there some other way to get past this point? I wonder if the Gamestop has a return policy in the holiday season.
That particular section killed me several times as well. You are talking about the one where you go through the courtyard, enter through the side of the building (pop the two guards inside the doorway), and then go up the stairs immediately on the right, correct?
If so, remember you have to hold the wiimote and chuck similar to you grabbing a rifle. (hard to describe, but hopefully you get what I mean)
