Summary: I recently got rid of all by big consoles because I'm preparing to move, but being the gamer that I am, I had to get me a portable gaming system to have fun with until I get on my feet. I chose to get a Nintendo 3DS, and I don't regret it one bit. Though this review is for a DS game, it is fully compatible with the 3DS. I was actually pleasantly surprised with this game, especially for it being the first real shooter I've ever played for a portable system.
Summary: When I go into a new game, I look for a number of things to make sure it's worth my time and effort. Is it a good game as a whole? Is it entertaining? Does it possess very impressive production values? Much like a movie, a video game can rise or fall depending on the use or lack of any of these qualities, and with this being the first Call of Duty title I'd gotten for my DS, this really came into play.
Summary: Right off the bat, this isn't a version to compete with the XBOX, PS3, PC version of MW3....and that is actually a GOOD thing! I have this game for XBOX as well and only gave it 2/5 stars. But this version is good...better than the others I think. It's just a fun little shooter for the handheld that probably has the best graphics for a DS shooter. I played this game probably 2hrs straight on an airplane flight and never got bored.
Easily one of the best FPS games on the DS and very fun overall. Great online multiplayer.

Summary: The DS versions of the franchise share boxart and basic premise with the console versions of Call of Duty, however the DS series also includes it's own narrative which is parallel to the console story. The story details a fictional war which happens between Russian forces and the rest of the world. You globetrot across various locations of the world and try to kill the enemy forces, before they kill you.
