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.

I hate super scripted moments in games. That sucks. I would try the game's specific forums at either there website or on IGN or something. I would think that you just aren't doing it hard enough or correctly. I don't have the game so I can't help you more.

Hell I'm playing it on the Xbox right now and it's dying for me too. Not that moment in particular though. The fact that the game sucks ass for the first few missions is what's putting me off. disgust

I played through the first 3 missions on the 360 this evening.  I have only had 1 forced melee so far.  You have to press the triggers alternately and then press y to finish him off.  Kind of gimmicky but not a game breaker for me.   So far it seems like a graphically upgraded CoD2.  But I'm enjoying it.  I think the real fun of this game will be in the multiplayer.

Try the GameFAQs forum, particularly the "Answers about the Controls" topic.

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)

you mean hold it so your hand are positioned exactly as they appear on the screen?

That sounds kind of neat.  When I get my Wii I may have to rent CoD3..... my 360 version is just collecting dust since it was overshadowed by Gears and then Vegas.

Yep!  That is exactly it.

Okay, I finally got past him.  As it turns out, I was holding the Wiimote and the Nunchuck wrong.  When I turned them so that the backs of the controllers were facing away from me, it suddenly worked!

Shortly after that, I got to another driving level.  Now THIS is fun and funny.  When I started a driving level and I realized how the controls were mimicking a steering wheel (hold the nunchuck at 9 o'clock, hold the wiimote at 3 o'clock, and turn them as though there was a wheel there), I couldn't help but find this so absurd I was laughing.  Then, I realized that . . . it actually worked and worked surprisingly well!

There is actually an attachment out there to turn the remote into a steering wheel for games that use steering controls like that.
