- Summary: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is a direct sequel to the previous game in the series, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, with a campaign storyline continuing the struggle of U.S. forces against an invasion by the Russian Federation following the framing of an undercover U.S. agent in a terrorist attack on Moscow. Together with classic Call of Duty multi-character control, Modern Warfare 3 contains deep multiplayer support, including two-player Co-op Survival mode.

Nov 8, 2011100Modern Warfare 3 concludes the trilogy with a solo campaign that goes beyond my expectations, and a multiplayer with subtle yet efficient revisions. It boasts better balancing and takes into account the supportive players more than ever compared to the regular solo guns blazing hero. Quite comprehensive, it also re-introduces the beloved Spec Ops mode, and the launch of Call of Duty Elite grants him the best available service in that category. Even though in terms of production values, and scope of the competitive multiplayer, Battlefield 3 harms Activision's champion, it remains a title that is firmly anchored to its traditional strengths, and doesn't get lazy. The lovers will be ecstatic, the haters gonna hate.
Nov 8, 201170Modern Warfare 3 doesn't reinvent gunpowder, but sticks to the recipe of the previous games in the series. With a decent story and good multiplayer it's a game worth playing, but the lack of willingness to add improvements in gameplay show a laziness often found in a complacent game series.
Spec Ops: With the addition of Survival mode I say that mode alone is a 10/10. It's fun, a lot more interesting than Zombies from the Treyarch Call of Duty games and for when PS3 network is down for maintenance I found it an enjoyable activity to pass time with. Much like multiplayer it has a leveling system. Your waves and cash will reset to zero but as you level you will have more weapons to buy and unlock more maps to play on. It is also great practice for learning the multiplayer maps since they share the same maps. The higher level maps have more difficult waves but over all i still found myself getting far and it was very fun.
Campaign: Nothing new here other then the story itself continues. I'll give it a 7/10 considering they finally got rid of the stupid training mission that started the story out before. The training mission is in spec ops however if you enjoy it for some reason. All call of duty campaigns have amazing presentation but overall it's the same experience to me.
Multiplayer: Nothing changed... bull crap, people are liars. First off a 9/10 for this. First thing I noticed was the lighting and weather effects. It is truly on par with the campaign style presentation. It feels like Battlefield 3's scale with a more user friendly close quarters arena, over all if you don't see the difference you should really go buy or rent the game and stop lying to people. Other than that the rest is the same with exception to weapon leveling which really just makes it easier to unlock attachments, no more of that 20 head shots bull crap with this and that or heart beat sensors kills. With plenty of nice tweaks this game is worth the $60 considering you get 16 maps anyways which Activision would have charged you anyways at $60 based on how they set up their map packs.
What it needs to improve:
1) Legacy Maps, all of them, rock band style, you should have learned Activision when the Guitar Hero series had to end. Don't let EA beat you to this because it will probably cut sales by A LOT! If that's to many maps for people create separate play list so that people can decide what they play and only need one disc. Also have a favorites play list where players can vote on all maps and the current top 10 maps will be in the favorites rotation.
2) Destruction, but in your own unique way. I have Battlefield for destroying entire buildings but it would be cool to be able to create some new cover areas and destroy some camping spots.
3) Create a Map, this is something I would like to see down the line, Tony Hawks create a skate park was pretty dope, i think we could make some pretty awesome maps with the right tools....
so now my average score is...9, i started off with an 8 but decided to rate each part and came to 9, so I will go with 9 officially. thanks for reading.… Expand
I would of give this a 9, but instead a 8 because it doesn't go that far as a "sequel" and just seeing every ones negative reviews also makes me want to lower the score. But personally i still think its good. Honestly i never played as much COD multiplayer as this one, simply addicting.… Expand
5.5 I know multiplayer is the main focus, but singleplayer should be equaly factored into a Game. It is HORRIBLE. Very repetitive, no challenge, boring story that takes itself way to seriously, and is only 4 hours long. Did the designers fall asleep? What happened? Online isn't bad, but it is also repetitive. Thankfully, it is addicting to unlock new things and does a great job of keeping you hooked, but eventually it does get tireing. Good if you want to play private matches with friends, but other than that, don't bother on this.
Gameplay- Very repetitive, yet addicting to a certain degree. Graphics- Ok, but no real memorable scenes or arcitechture.
Sound- Effects are good, music is forgettable. Presentation- Story is taken too seriously and one death of a main character is not nearly as emotional as the game thinks it is. Basic FPS.
Very good if you have friends who can play with you, other than that, skip it.… Expand
0Well, back to Modern Warfare 2 I guess. Modern Warfare 2 had better map design, weapon design, spawn placement, sound design, kill streak design and frankly weapon proficiencies are a step backward.
Any fps should have to pass 2 tests:
The pistol test. Can a great player win with a pistol?
The unlock test. Is the game balanced enough to make a level 1 player be able to compete evenly? Proficiencies undo this.… Expand
