Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
1 July 2012
Excerpt: Vanaf Modern Warfare is Call of Duty gegroeid van een fantastische serie naar een franchise die miljarden waard is en die het hart vormt van Activisions succes. Aan de grondslag van dat succes ligt Infinity Ward, de studio die vorig jaar zijn oprichters zag vertrekken om een nieuwe studio op te richten die samen zal werken met Activisions grootste tegenstander: Electronic Arts.
Conclusion: 2011 will go down in gaming is one of the best years ever in gaming. Sure, it was slow early on but near the end we’ve been given so many solid titles gamers have been torn in terms of what to get this year. Passing up on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is not an option as it’s becoming part of our culture, but it would be easy to skip it for all the newer titles that have taken the gaming world by storm and your strapped for cash.
Excerpt: The Call of Duty franchise is known for jaw-dropping set pieces, fast and frantic gunplay, and the most popular online multiplayer experience ever. The most recent installment, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 , was heralded as the most anticipated release in history. The fact that Infinity Ward, makers of the previous Modern Warfare titles, was now teamed up with Sledgehammer games didn't dissuade anyone.
Excerpt: When it comes to military shooters Call of Duty seems to be the first game franchise that comes to mind these days. Technically, Call of Duty didn’t invent the military shooter, but it did a lot to keep the genre on the map for nearly a decade now. The latest installment is Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 ( MW3 ).
Pros: It continues on right where MW2 left off. Great solo campaign action. Solid and addictive multiplayer mayhem, with loads of new weapons/unlocks to be had. Spec Ops mode is loads of fun, to boot. It still manages to look really good, even if it’s only baby steps better than Modern Warfare 2 visually. Overall a solid game for single and multiplayer gamers.
Cons: No Elite support for the PC version. No PC controller support at all. Usually the PC version is $10 cheaper than the $60 console counterparts, but not this one. MW3 on the PC costs the same as the console versions, with less options.
Conclusion: Firstly, players can now rank up their weapons
as well as their player. This works well because
it encourages the player to try out different
weapons and loadouts. The other new multiplayer
features are Kill Confirmed and Team Defender.
The former helps newer players because it
rewards you for picking up dog tags left by
fallen players, making it a good place to cut
Excerpt: It's safe to say that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is one of the hottest games of 2011. Even if you didn't hear about its five-day worldwide sell-through record of more than $775 million or its 1.4 million simultaneous users, you have probably noted that MW3 -licensed keyboards, mice, headsets, earbuds, controllers and consoles abound. Luckily, it's not all merely hype.
Summary: I have mixed feelings about Modern Warfare 3. The story was good despite the lack of World War 3 scenes Activision so heavily marketed. Had it been just about hunting Makarov, I wouldn’t mind that it didn’t feel like World War 3. The missions of Modern Warfare 3 are generally a blast, leaving each mission with an exciting escape. Modern Warfare 3 brings new Special-Ops missions that go along with the story.
Summary: “How does it feel to be bad? To be worse than me? Huh?” I can finally answer him: it felt better. I eventually climbed the learning curve, increased my rank, unlocked a majority of the unlockables and won a few first-place matches here and there, but I never really felt good about it.
