In my opinion the Halo franchise has gone steadily downhill since H2. I am not a fan of the armor perks and I feel that the game play really got sloppy. I saw another review that said Halo 2 was a sport because all players were equal, and I think that is a great point. I gave Halo 4 a shot because of the new developers and thought maybe they could save the franchise. What they did was fuse the poor play of H3 and Reach with a poor man's version of COD layouts. What you get is an abortion of a game. People are starting with plasma pistols and battle rifles. 4 v 4 team slayer has a whopping 4 maps available. If you liked H3 and Reach, you will probably like this slop too. If you didn't like them, you won't like this either.
Bottom line I am bummed that this game isn't better. I will be listing it on eBay and will probably ruin some poor kid's Christmas. I just hope Black Ops II is better than MW3 so I have something to play.… Expand
Average User Score: 8.5Nov 8, 2012This is far and away the most beautiful, most in depth, most amazing game I ever ever played. I believe that this game will go down in historyThis is far and away the most beautiful, most in depth, most amazing game I ever ever played. I believe that this game will go down in history with the like of Zelda, Halo 1 and other video game legends. The only bad thing I can say is that it consumes too much of my time. Other games should look at this game and be ashamed that they are not even close to being as well made.… Expand

The campaign is what it is, another chapter in a great story. But the true value of the COD series is the online multi-player. Black Ops took a step forward from MW2, but MW3 takes two steps back.
The menus are unnecessarily cumbersome. I find setting up my custom classes gets pretty annoying. I'm not sure why these changes were made. Still, I could get used to this if I were to keep the game long enough, which I probably will not.
The multi-player issue can be described in three words: Poorly Designed Maps.
Every map is basically the same. Regardless of size, the surroundings force tight game play. Each battle takes on the same result. Whether its blown up cars, walls, hills, ruins, etc., players are forced through choke points. Very few maps offer any areas of visibility. This leads to games that feel like walking through an amusement park haunted house, around each bend another player jumps out on you. This gets old pretty quickly. Camping in corners and shadows, or in windows or darkened doors, is the norm. Overall, this just has the feel of being a cheap COD knock off rather than a true COD game. I played MW2 until Black Ops came out, and played that until this was released. Looks like I will have to find another game to fill my usual gaming time as this just isn't cutting it.… Expand
