Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Review
3 January 2012
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: 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.
Excerpt: The first Call of Duty (CoD) game I played was CoD3 and it was no doubt an enjoyable experience. At the very least, it was good enough to keep me interested in the yearly CoD instalments. Last year, I skipped out on Black Ops, believing that Modern Warfare 2 (MW2) was as good as a CoD game could get. Also, the yearly releases were starting to get to me as I did not feel there was enough differentiation to keep me engaged.
Summary: Despite being marred in controversy by the monumental fallout and highly publicised mud-slinging match between its publisher and creators, Jason West and Vince Zampella, Modern Warfare 3 is without doubt Infinity Ward’s finest hour, an apologetic, highly linear shooter that thrusts you at breakneck speed from one startlingly brilliant set piece to the next with absolute aplomb.
Excerpt: Call of Duty is a peculiar series. Each year it shifts millions of copies and is greeted with near unanimous critical praise, yet it also attracts a special kind of hatred from a vocal segment of the gaming community that consider it a microcosm of everything that is wrong with modern gaming. If Call of Duty is to be an acquired taste, then with Modern Warfare 3 it’s one that is more refined than ever.
Conclusion: Being comprehensive doesn’t necessarily mean "best" though. It’s no secret that Modern Warfare 3’s biggest rival this year comes in the form of EA DICE’s brilliant Battlefield 3 - a shooter which misses the target in its single-player form but is saved by its impeccable multiplayer mode. Which one you choose is ultimately up to personal preference, because even though on the surface they appear very similar, each offers a very different style of online play.
Pros: Relentless, over-the-top action throughout the campaign, A variety of addictive multiplayer and co-op modes, Stunning visuals and dramatic scenarios
Summary: Modern Warfare 3 er en fantastisk udgivelse og klart et af de bedste shootere hidtil overhovedet. Der er ikke voldsomt mange nyskabelser i titlen, men til gengæld er der mange gode detaljer, som er med til at gøre spillet mere fuldendt end sine forgængere. MW3 er naturligvis en af de titler, der ikke kan mangles i spilsamlingen, hvis du er fan af genren.
