    In terms of graphics and game modes, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is no doubt the best episode of the series ever made for Wii. The problem is the motion controls aren't very accurate this time around, so you eventually have to play the game the traditional way, using a Classic Controller.

    We dare to say that Modern Warfare 3 is the best FPS for the Wii, with few competitors. Although we prefer the campaign of Black Ops, this iteration improves a lot in the online mode, which is hands down the best in the platform.

    Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 on Wii is a decent FPS, good enough to wait 'til Nintendo's next generation console is out.

    Moder Warfare 3 is the old same Call of Duty...Thankfully. Half movie, half game, the brand entertains the player as few other fps can do.

    Treyarch's technical prowess gained from bringing Call of Duty games on the platform shines through and through for the best-looking one on Wii yet. It's not exactly on par with the HD versions concerning fidelity or features, but considering the difference in horsepower MW3 on Wii is undeniably impressive. MW3 may not make you rethink the Call of Duty series, but it'll certainly satisfy its army of fans.

    Modern Warfare 3 on Wii won't ever astound with its graphics or win over anyone already intent on playing it on another console. It is by no means the definitive version. Despite its various limitations, however, it is a solid approximation of the kind of content that continues to deliver year after year, even if the ride is getting a little predictable.

    Though there're a few glitches that doesn't makes it the best shooter on Wii, Modern Warfare 3 stands as a well-made adaptation for those who are willing to have a taste on Infinity Ward's latest blockbuster.

    MW3 is the definitive version of the franchise on the Wii and one of the best FPS ever made for the console.

    If you're a fan of Wii shooters, this game is a must. The one issue is with the online multiplayer – when it all flows well it's very good, but when it doesn't it can be very frustrating!

It's a reskin of a 2 year old game with a multiplayer map pack and different singleplayer that's riddled with stupidity and cliches in bulk while still being insanely short

    I don't understand how Activision gets away with doing this to people. I understand it's fun to some gamers and they like the series and that's fine, but just throwing money at something because it's fun is selfish and they need to tell Activision with their wallets they're tired of getting ripped off every year.

    Activision has once again failed to make their latest COD title stand out. Because, frankly, this is the umpteenth time COD 4 has beenActivision has once again failed to make their latest COD title stand out. Because, frankly, this is the umpteenth time COD 4 has been repackaged, with little to no innovation. The same broken Multiplayer, the same try-hard 4 hour long story, and soon the same overpriced map packs. It is truly a disgrace, the way Activision keeps confirming their greediness, and lack of interest for their customers. This hasn`t bitten them yet, seeing as a lot of COD-players are very, very young. Too young to stand up and say "I will no longer let myself be milked dry like a cow. I will no longer let this company ruin gaming by repackaging the same game over and over again, therefore being a bad example for the rest". And even when the fans are a bit older, they still have ridiculously low standards, considering they like replaying the same broken game, over and over, paying 60 Dollars every year.

    Because of this greediness and laziness, COD MW3 deserves a 0, but I`ll give Infinity Ward and Sledgehammer games 1 point for the effort.
