Single Player is solid but Multiplayer is painful

Summary: Call of duty MW3 is a good game in a few aspects but has a few game killing features. The spec ops and campaign are very well done and keep the amazing MW2 story and gameplay aspects around. The game killing aspect is in the multiplayer which is the most popular feature in Call of Duty because of its addictive, fast action gameplay. This game killing feature is how hacked this game is.
Summary: I've played pretty much every Call of Duty game dating back to the original and this one lives up to the legacy even if it doesn't innovate much. The single-player campaign is full of those bombastic scripted moments the series is so well known for and the multiplayer is solid if not spectacular. Between the two I squeezed about 30 hours out of the game, pretty much all of which were enjoyable.
Summary: The only reason why most ppl buy COD is multiplayer... I like the campaign mode, always nice to see what the story has to tell, but thats not why i buy COD. Black Ops was great, no lobby's, can pick and choose your server, each gun has a distinct sound. Why does every gun sound the same? didnt quite understand this.
Summary: Where is punkbuster when you need them? The single player modes are fun but and multiplayer is fun as well. You will have to tolerate all the hackers unfortunately as Activision no longer supports their games anymore.
Summary: All this is is an upgraded MW2, for PC there are endless hackers, making multiplayer frusturating. The campaign is vary linear, and over- dramatic. They over- complicated customization, I think... too much going on. 7 types of special grenades,( who uses a jammer anyway?). The best thing they did for PC gamers is allow dedicated servers, so people can mod as they please, but this is surprisingly under- used by the community, making it tough to find a good server.
Summary: Basically, this game is just Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 1 with more perks, more streaks, more guns, more maps, more everything. That's fine, since Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is easily one of the best FPSes released in this generation. It's fun, it's serviceable, there are certainly worse games you could be spending your money on, but at this point, it's unarguable that the series has definitely lost something since its earlier incarnation.
Summary: There is nothing new to be found in "Modern Warfare 3." There are evil Russians, conspiracy theories, and grizzled soldiers protecting freedom. More importantly, there are explosions and extensive use of high-powered weaponry. At no point in this game will you see something you've never seen in other games, outside of perhaps the Eiffel Tower collapsing right in your face (well, Twisted Metal already did that, so never mind).
Summary: Multiplayer is probably the most important aspect of the CoD games since you will likely be clocking the most game time in it. Personally, I was disappointed with the multiplayer and didn't feel it was worth the $50. In addition, you can't resell the game since it is automatically linked to your Steam account.
Pros: - Looks great; capable of running with high fps (50+) at high settings and 1080p resolution - Good actions and physics for an FPS - Compelling single player; two campaigns to choose from
Cons: - Multiplayer maps are smaller and more fast-paced than CoD 4; I don't see the purpose of the sniper class anymore - No freedom to choose your own servers to join; you are automatically placed in a game based on your selected game type
